Unknown in Sanctuary
The Hount Silver Cloth is the cloth of the Saint Asterion in Saint Seiya and an unknown Saint in Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas. It is of the second class of the cloths that Athena's Saints wield, the Silver Cloths.

Asterion trained to be a Saint on Mt. Brocken, Austria 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 first group of Silver Saints to attack Seiya and his fellow Bronze Saints. His ability to read minds makes Aquila Marin's strategy fail, and he is able to do some damage to Seiya, but Marin is able to clear her mind, and defeat Asterion, telling him to inform the Pope of their deeds. He is not seen again after that, but his grave is shown in the Hades Arc.
This is the form the Hound Silver Cloth takes during the original Saint Seiya series. Asterion earned the cloth on Mt. Brocken, Austria, and it was first seen when Asterion appears with a Black Saint's body (thought to be a Bronze Saint) in volume 5. Like most Silver Cloth's original forms, it covers a decent amount of the body, between Bronze Cloths and Gold Cloths. The cloth itself shows no real unique traits outside of those given to other Silver Cloths. The Cloth was last seen as Asterion was defeated by Marin.
Special Abilities of Silver Cloth of Hound
The Hound Silver Cloth, while having all of the strength and endurance of a Silver Cloth, has no special traits that make it stand out as a cloth.
Techniques used by Hound Saints
Asterion uses two major techniques during his various fights.
"Million Ghost Attack"
"Million Ghost Attack" is an offensive technique used by Asterion on Seiya, and attempted on Marin. Asterion speeds himself up, to the point where it appears there are countless copies of himself. He then strikes the foe, seemingly from all sides.
Unnamed Mind Reading Technique
Asterion uses an unnamed mind reading ability against Seiya and Marin. He is able to read minds, and therefore, knows what his foe will do as soon as they do. Marin defeated this technique by completely clearing her mind, and defeating Asterion
