The Perseus Silver Cloth is the cloth of the Saint Algol 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.
Holding Out For a Hero
The Perseus constellation is based on the hero Perseus, who did many great deeds, including slaying the Gorgon, Medusa, which created the Pegasus, and saving Andromeda from Cetus, gaining himself a bride in the process. His many deeds made him one of the most legendary heroes to come out of Greek Mythology
Stone Cold Killer
Algol trained to be a Saint in 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 second group of Silver Saints to attack Seiya and his fellow Bronze Saints. Algol proves to be one of the most difficult foes, as his Medusa Shield turns both Hyoga and Shun into stone. Shiryu had to blind himself in order to properly fight Algol. He died from Shiryu's attack.
This is the form the Perseus Silver Cloth takes during the original Saint Seiya series. Algol earned the cloth in Austria, and it was first seen when Algol was attacked by Shun in volume 7. Like most Silver Cloth's original forms, it covers a decent amount of the body, between Bronze Cloths and Gold Cloths. The cloth has a shield, which can not only block attacks, but can turn all who see the shield's eyes, when open, to stone. The Cloth was last seen as Shiryu defeated Algol.
Special Abilities of Silver Cloth of Perseus
The Perseus Silver Cloth has the Medusa Shield, a shield with the face of Medusa on it. The shield's face normally has its eyes closed, showing no power. But, when the eyes open, the shield turns all who meet it's gaze into stone. It could even pass through fabric to partially turn the victim into stone. Only those who look away, or are blind, are spared.
Techniques used by Perseus Saints
Algol uses one major technique during his various fights.
"Las Alghul Gorgoneio"
"Las Alghul Gorgoneio" which means 'Head of the Ghoul Gorgoneion' is an offensive technique used by Algol on Shiryu. Algol leaps high into the air and forces himself into his foe with a mighty kick, likely stronger than a regular kick due to it's height, and possible cosmo use.
