The Sagitta Silver Cloth is the cloth of the Saint Ptolemy in Saint Seiya, by the revived Saint Maya in Saint Seiya: Evil Goddess Eris, and by 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.

Cloth History

A Shot in the Dark

The Arrow constellation was supposed to be the arrow that Hercules shot at the Aquila, who pecked out the liver of Prometheus, who gave man fire. After taking down the bird, he was able to free the Titan who was formerly the champion of mankind.

He's No Cupid

Ptolemy trained to be a Saint in Thebus, Egypt 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 attacks Athena and the Bronzes outside Sanctuary. Using his Phantom Arrow attack, he distracts [{Seiya]] and the others, while he pierces Athena's chest with a golden arrow that nobody there can remove. Before this is revealed, however, Seiya mortally wounds him. He dies shortly after revealing this information.

Previous War

The Sagitta Saint briefly appeared as a fallen Saint in The Lost Canvas. He was killed early on with two other Silvers, and they are brought back by Hades. They all fell by the hands of Gold Saints.

Before appearing in the manga, the Sagitta Silver Cloth appeared, albeit in a modified form, in the first Saint Seiya movie, Evil Goddess Eris. He 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.

This is the form the Sagitta Silver Cloth takes during the original Saint Seiya series. Ptolemy earned the cloth in Thebes, and it was first seen when Ptolemy attacked Athena and the Bronzes in volume 8. 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 great Golden Arrow as a weapon, that is used with an illusionary attack. The Cloth was last seen as Seiya defeated Ptolemy.

Properties

Special Abilities of Silver Cloth of Sagitta

The Sagitta Silver Cloth has a mighty Golden Arrow that is used in conjunction with an illusionary attack to increase the chances of striking a target. Once the arrow pierces the chest of the target, it digs its way into their body, towards their heart. The arrow can only be removed by the power of Athena, making it one of the most deadly weapons to have.

Techniques used by Sagitta Saints

Between Ptolemy and Maya, two major techniques are used in the series.

"Phantom Arrow"

"Phantom Arrow" is an offensive, and illusionary, technique used by Ptolemy on Athena and the Bronzes. Ptolemy strikes his fist forward, numerous false arrows shooting forward. This is just to disguise the Golden Arrow, which is among the fake arrows. It pierces the foe and slowly begins to burrow into them over a period of several hours, with only the power of Athena being able to remove it.

"Hunting Arrow Express"

"Hunting Arrow Express" is an offensive technique used by Maya in the first movie. Maya uses the technique to fire poisonous arrows at the foe, which can remove the five senses from the victim.

Notes & Trivia

  • The Sagitta Cloth was initially designed by Masami Kurumada for the first Saint Seiya movie. The Cloth was refined for its theatrical debut and differs from the original design in various parts. But like with the Lyra Cloth it was presented into the manga as well.[1]
  • Of the five versions that exists of the Sagitta Cloth(movie, manga, anime, LC and LC anime), the biggest difference is between the movie version and the latter. The movie version has completely different leg armor, a rounder second left shoulder pad, a very simplified belt, a slightly different right arm guard, a triangular field on the chest-plate instead of round, and its blue instead of silver. The anime version is mostly the same to the manga version except that it retains the simplified belt. In The Lost Canvas the Cloth stays mainly the same except in he anime where there is armor over the feet.
