"I appear three times in the manga, and only speak in the second, volumes later?...Damnit."

The Lionet Bronze Cloth is the cloth of the Saint Ban in Saint Seiya, Bleriot in Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas, and Sōma in Saint Seiya: Omega. It is of the lowest class of the cloths that Athena's Saints wield, the Bronze Cloth.


Cloth History

The Little Lion

The constellation of Leo Minor was originally part of the Leo constellation, un-separated. It was separated from the Leo constellation after the ancient myths were formed, not having a myth of its own.


Ban trained to be a Saint in Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania during the period the other orphans were. The cloth was likely kept in this area by his master to be given to one who was proved to be a Saint. During The Lost Canvas, Bleriot is the Saint who receives the Lionet Bronze Cloth. It is not revealed where he got his cloth, having had it since the beginning of the series.

Previous War

While the Lionet Bronze Cloth wasn't seen often in the original Saint Seiya series, Bleriot proves himself important in the restoration and re-awakening of an ancient ship, which the Saints wish to use to go to The Lost Canvas, dying in the process. It is unknown what happens to the cloth between the series' latest chapter and the beginning of the original series, after Bleriot's death.

Little Lion

"There's no way I'll be defeated before my first onscreen words..."

This is the form the Lionet Bronze Cloth takes during the original Saint Seiya series. Ban earned the cloth in Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, and it was first seen with seven of the other Bronze Saints at the Galaxian Tournament. Like most Bronze Cloth's original form, it offers very little coverage. It seems to actively lack any sort of special attribute to make it special among other cloths. Though it is damaged, repaired and likely strengthened, the cloth hasn't changed much, if it at all from it's first form.


Special Abilities of Bronze Cloth of Leo Minor

The Lionet Bronze Cloth has not, at any point in any manga, shown abilities that make it a unique cloth when compared to others. That, and its status as a Bronze Cloth make it appear to be a rather worthless cloth.

Techniques used by Lionet Saints

Between Ban, Bleriot, and Sōma, one major attack was shown for the Lionet Saint during their few battles in the various series.

"Lionet Bomber"

The "Lionet Bomber" is an attack used by the Bronze Saint of Leo Minor (Lionet). The attack was used when Bronze Saints defended the injured Athena. The attack seems to be a lunge at his foe, almost like a tackle. The attack's name was the very first line he ever used in the manga.
