Auriga Silver Cloth
|Auriga Silver Cloth|
Broken in Sanctuary
The Auriga Silver Cloth is the cloth of the Saint Capella in Saint Seiya and the Auriga Saint in Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas. It is of the second class of the cloths that Athena's Saints wield, the Silver Cloths.
Pop a Wheelie
The Charioteer constellation can be seen as being based on Hephaestus, who was born lame, and needing his own chariot, or wheelchair, to move around.
What Goes Around Comes Around
Capella trained to be a Saint in Sanctuary, Greece by an unknown master. The cloth was likely kept in Sanctuary until a Saint worthy of wearing it was found. He follows the orders of the Pope, and is among the second group of Silver Saints to attack Seiya and his fellow Bronze Saints. He is hurt by Ikki's attack, and falls prey to his Phantom Demon Punch, where his mind is broken, and Ikki shatters his Cloth quite easily.
Olympic Disc Throwing
This is the form the Auriga Silver Cloth takes during the original Saint Seiya series. Capella earned the cloth in Sanctuary, and it was first seen when Capella tried to attack Ikki in volume 6. Like most Silver Cloth's original forms, it covers a decent amount of the body, between Bronze Cloths and Gold Cloths. The cloth has two discs as weapons, used for the Saint's attacks. The Cloth was last seen as Ikki defeated Capella.
Special Abilities of Silver Cloth of Auriga
The Auriga Silver Cloth has two discs, which make up the wheels of the Charioteer, that can be used as weapons, to devastating effect when the Saint is strong.
Techniques used by Auriga Saints
Capella uses one major technique during his various fights.
"Flying Saucer" is an offensive technique used by Capella on Ikki. Capella throws his disc at a high speed, and uses it to inflict mortal wounds, possibly by severing limbs. It can travel in many varied trajectories, but tends to return to him after use.
