The leader of Bronze, Silver and Gold Saints; she is the reincarnation of the Goddess of War and Wisdom, Athena. Though mostly unable to physically fight, she has an extremely powerful cosmos that gives her a notable endurance to pain and extreme conditions (as proved in the Sanctuary, Asgard and Poseidon arcs) and healing/defensive powers (she's arguably the most powerful healer in the whole Saint Seiya universe). She usually channelizes it through a golden aura or her sacred staff.

After Saga (under the guise of the Pope) tried to kill her when she was a baby and that Aiolos rescued her, she was given to Mitsumasa Kido who raised her as his grand daughter. As a child, she was initially very spoiled and rude to the Bronze Saints, but as years passed and she first took over her grandfather's foundation and later discovered she was the new reincarnation of Athena, she acts much more mature and responsible about her mission. She's usually calm and collected, an excellent strategist and very compassionate. Keiko Han (潘 恵子 Han Keiko) is a seiyu who was born on April 5, 1953. ... Fumiko Orikasa , born on December 27, 1974 in Taito-shi, Tokyo) is a female seiyū and singer. ... Asumi Nakata , born April 5, 1988) is a female seiyū and a Japanese child model who was born in Tokyo, Japan. ... For other uses, see Athena (disambiguation). ...

Notes

  • Supposedly, the Saints represent the 88 constellations, yet according to the official number of Saints given (12 Gold Saints, 24 Silver Saints and 48 Bronze Saints), there are still four unaccounted Saints. However, three Silver Saints and over thirty Bronze Saints never make an appearance.
  • The manga Episode G suggests that the four unaccounted Saints could belong to the Bronze Saints. Due Episode G's unknown status as Canon, this information may be unreliable.
  • In the Mythological Age, Cloth (or Cloths) evolved in God Cloth(s). This was stated by Hypnos and Thanathos in the original manga.
  • In Gigantomachia one of the four missing saints was suggested to be, Mei who wears the Cloth of Berenice.
  • "You can only use an attack on a Saint once, afterwards it will have no effect." This is a famous quote from many Saints, referring to how after they've seen an attack once, they would know how to counter it, and subsequent uses of the same attack would prove to be ineffective.
  • It was stated in the movie pamphlet of Saint Seiya (Gekijoban; the movie) that the cloths of The Southern cross, Shield and Orion are of the silver rank. Note: Kurumada himself participated in the making of the movie, and the cloths as stated in interviews about the movie in the japanese magazine Newtype.

Odin's Asgardians (anime only)

  • Polaris Hilda: A beautiful and powerful young woman who is Odin's representative on Earth and priestess of Asgard, she is possessed by the Nibelung Ring (controlled by Poseidon) after rejecting his influence, and sets her sights on world domination in the name of Odin. Her younger sister Freya contacts Saori and asks her and the Saints for help.
Saori quickly sets up a strategy: she will take Hilda's place temporally as the one who prays to avoid the melting of the Polar Ice, while the Bronze Knights fight Hilda's Guardians to reach her. She's finally liberated after fighting Seiya, who awakened the Odin God Robe and the legendary sword Balmung with all Odin Sapphires, and returns to her gentle self. It's also revealed that Poseidon locked her spirit away in the Nibelung Ring as her body was controlled by him, torrturing her psychologically since she could only watch her warriors die one by one.
She's apparently named after Brynhildr, the strongest of the Valkyries in Norse mythology and one of the main characters in Richard Wagner's Tetralogy, as well as the hero Siegfried's love interest.
Seiyuu: Mitsuko Horie (堀江 美都子, ほりえ みつこ)

After being the first person (aside from Alberich) who notices the drastic change in her sister, she seeks out help from Saori and her saints for help, freeing Hyoga from jail (he had been been sent as a scout and then captured) and joining him, therefore she's branded as a traitor by everyone. She was deeply saddened for the battle that she didn't not want to come to be between Merak Hagen and Cygnus Hyoga; Hyoga was her first friend (and possible love interest) among the Bronze Saints, but Hagen was her bodyguard and best friend since childhood.
She's named after Freya, the goddess of love and beauty in Norse mythology.

Seiyuu: Yuji Mitsuya (三ツ矢 雄二, みつや ゆうじ)
The legendary mythical person himself, as expressed by Andromeda Shun.
After his failure of bringing Eurydice back, he died with regrets. This led to that he gladly took Eris offer and got revived in a new body.
As he faced of Shun he seemed to be a calm and subtle person, but as the fight progressed he showed his evil side. After ensnaring and almost killing Shun with his Stringer Requiem, he was cut short with Phoenix Ikki's arrival.
Ikki used his Genma Ken to finish him, but since Orpheus already had suffered through hell hebrushed it of with ease. Wasting no time he attacked with his Stringer Requiem again, but this time Ikki unleashed his Ho o Yoku Tensho at him and he was killed.
Named after the Greek mythical musician Orpheus.

Angels

The Angels (written with the kanji 天闘士 meaning "Celestial Warriors") are the chosen warriors of the Olympian Gods. The name of their armors is "Glory". They are also some of most powerful foes Athena's Bronze Saints have ever faced. The cloths of Seiya, Shiryu, and Hyoga are all more or less destroyed in their respective battles against the Angels.

  • Icaros/Tōma (斗馬): The only human among the angels. He gives up his humanity to serve Artemis in order to be powerful like a god, and also turns out to be the long lost brother of Marin Eagle. However, by the end of the Heaven Saga movie, he sacrifices himself to protect Athena. Attacks with gold spears and electric charges. His finishing move is "Highest Altitude". He is supposed to have stats and attributes equal to Seiya, as they are the same size and share the same birthday.
    Seiyuu: Hikaru Midorikawa(緑川光), as a child: Fumiko Inoue(井上 富美子)
Based on Icaros, son of Daidalos; he flew too near the sun with wax-attached wings, then he fell into the sea and drowned.
  • Odysseus: Attacks with Energy Spheres. Absorbs energy attacks, can redirect or combine with his own power to make a reverse attack. He is defeated by both Hyōga and Shiryū. Much of the fight initially happens off-screen; Seiya, after regaining the Pegasus Cloth, stumbles upon Shun and Hyoga, both badly beaten by Odysseus, and their cloths smashed. Seiya then also takes a beating from Odysseus and has his cloth shattered as well. However, Shiryu and Hyoga are able to energize their Cosmos and finally (though just barely) kill Odysseus.
    Seiyuu: Hiroki Takahashi(緑川光)
Odysseus (Ulysses): King of Ithaca; husband of Penelope; wandered ten years after fall of Troy before arriving home.
  • Theseus: Uses wings to attack. Arguably the weakest of the 3 Angels, his finishing move is a Solar Beam. He tends to fly more than the other Angels, and is the first of the Angels to be defeated, by both Shun and Ikki. Although Ikki's attack is the one that finishes him off, Ikki would not have been able to achieve the victory without Shun's help.
    Seiyuu: Toshiyuki Morikawa(森川智之)
Named after Theseus, son of Aegeus; slew Minotaur; married and deserted Ariadne; later married Phaedra.

Trivia

  • Something worth noting is that the coloring between the original manga and the anime differs greatly. For example, Camus has red hair in the manga, while it is light blue/turquoise in the anime.
  • Saori Kido is one of the few characters in Saint Seiya whose full name is revealed, in addition to Tatsumi Tokumaru (Saori's butler) and Julian Solo (Poseidon's reincarnation). All other characters do not have a last name stated in the series. In the cases of the warriors, generally the name of their armor is used instead (for instance: Pegasus Seiya, Wyvern Radamantis, Lyra Orphee, Gemini Kanon.)
