Southern Cross Silver Cloth
|Southern Cross Silver Cloth|
The Southern Cross Silver Cloth is the Cloth of the revived Saint Christ 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.
The Crux of the Situation
The Crux constellation was originally part of the Cerberus constellation during the days of Ancient Greece. It was centuries later that the constellation was rediscovered and separated from the Cerberus constellation, becoming the Crux constellation. Crux is Latin for Cross, and was named after it's shape.
Don't Cross Me...
While not appearing in the manga and anime, the Southern Cross Silver Cloth appeared in the first Saint Seiya movie, Evil Goddess Eris. Christ 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.
A Sketchy Cross
This is the original design of the Southern Cross Silver Cloth as done by Masami Kurumada. Christ 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 itself shows no real unique traits outside of those given to other Silver Cloths. The Cloth was last seen as Christ was defeated.
Special Abilities of Silver Cloth of Southern Cross
The Southern Cross 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 Southern Cross Saints
In the movie, Christ uses one major technique during his fights.
"Southern Cross Thunder Bolt"
"Southern Cross Thunder Bolt" is an offensive technique used by Christ in the first movie. Christ shifts his arms into an L shape with the left one lying down. He then dashes forward with his Cosmo charged.
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.
