Orion Silver Cloth
|Orion Silver Cloth|
That Must Have Stung
The Orion constellation was based on the Myth of the hunter known as Orion, whose threat to kill every beast in the world upset Gaea, and she sent the Scorpion to kill him. Both the fallen Orion and his slayer the Scorpion were placed in the skies as constellations in memory of this event.
He Should Have Gone With "A"
While not appearing in the manga and anime, the Orion Silver Cloth appeared in the first Saint Seiya movie, Evil Goddess Eris. Jäger was a revived Saint (aka a Ghost Saint), and was given this version of the Cloth. In the end, it was damaged and left behind, the ghost having been beaten.
The Bronze Metal
The Orion Silver Cloth does not appear as is in Saint Seiya: Omega, it had somehow become a Bronze Cloth, the Orion Bronze Cloth since its original form. It's not clear whether Omega simply views the movie as non-canon to its own continuity, or if it simply changed when the Cloths changed, but it is no longer a Silver Cloth, much like the Aquila Silver Cloth.
Once Again, Making Us Ask Why The Dragon Shield Is Special
This is the original design of the Orion Silver Cloth as done by Masami Kurumada. Jäger likely earned the Cloth many years prior to the series, and had it returned, in an altered state, after his revival. Like most Silver Cloth's original forms, it covers a decent amount of the body, between Bronze Cloths and Gold Cloths. The Cloth was last seen as Jäger was defeated.

Techniques used by Orion Saints
In the movie, Jäger uses one major technique during his fights.
"Megaton Meteor Crash"
"Megaton Meteor Crash" is an offensive technique used by Jäger in the first movie. Jäger jumps up and starts to spin like a ball; he flies down toward its target ending with delivering a kick to the opponent.
Notes & Trivia
- The Cloth has only been stated to originally be Silver due to that Masami Kurumada designed the original version of the Cloth which was refined for the movie, and that both the Lyra and Sagitta Cloths that were made for the movie were incorporated into the Original story.
