Southern Cross Thunderbolt
Christ is the Saint of The Southern Cross and wears the Southern Cross Silver Cloth, his class have only been confirmed with a question mark as Silver. Christ appeared in the first Saint Seiya movie called "Jashin Eris" were he was part of a group of revived Saints called "Ghost Five".
Christ died some time before Athena was kidnapped, and is thus recognized by Hyoga as being the Southern Cross to Hyoga's Northern Cross. Feeling restless and tormented by his death as he lay in his grave, Christ put aside his Saint title and joined Eris, who revived him with a new body. When he gets an advantage over Cygnus Hyoga, Christ is betrayed by Eris, who sees this as a good opportunity. She throws a spear into Christ's back which pierces right through his heart, killing him and injuring Hyoga at the same time.
Concept & Creation
With the success of the Saint Seiya franchise in both anime & manga form, a movie was proposed by Toei. Masami Kurumada participated in the production and after 3 months he contributed with the new Saints. Christ is named after Christ the anointed one, in the case of Jesus who were hung to a cross. As the Lyra & Sagitta Cloths was created by Kurumada for the movie and later appeared in the original story, many assume the Southern Cross Cloth will too.
