Saint Seiya - Characters List

List of characters in Saint Seiya

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


This article concerns the characters that play a role in Saint Seiya (also known as Knights of the Zodiac), an manga series about a group of five mystical warriors, authored by Japanese mangaka Masami Kurumada, and later turned into anime.



[edit] Athena's Saints of the 88 Constellations

  • Saori Kido (城戸沙織 Kido Saori) also known as Athena
Age: 13
Height: 1.55m (5'1")
Weight: 44kg (97lbs)
Birthday: September 1
Blood Type: A
Birth Place: Greece
Techniques: Misopetha-Menos (used on Dohko), Protection Sphere (used in Hades chapter protecting Bronze Saints), Seal of Athena, several kinds of energy blasts, healing auras.
Seiyuu: Keiko Han (潘 恵子, はん けいこ), Fumiko Orikasa (折笠 富美子, おりかさ ふみこ) later series, Asumi Nakata (中田 あすみ, なかた あすみ) (Hades saga).
The leader of Bronze, Silver and Gold Saints; she is the reincarnation of the Goddess of War and Wisdom, Athena. Though mostly unable to physically fight, she has an extremely powerful cosmos that gives her a notable endurance to pain and extreme conditions (as proved in the Sanctuary, Asgard and Poseidon arcs) and healing/defensive powers (she's arguably the most powerful healer in the whole Saint Seiya universe). She usually channelizes it through a golden aura or her sacred staff.

After Saga (under the guise of the Pope) tried to kill her when she was a baby and that Aiolos rescued her, she was given to Mitsumasa Kido who raised her as his grand daughter. As a child, she was initially very spoiled and rude to the Bronze Saints, but as years passed and she first took over her grandfather's foundation and later discovered she was the new reincarnation of Athena, she acts much more mature and responsible about her mission. She's usually calm and collected, an excellent strategist and very compassionate.

Saori later on commits suicide in the Hades arc to enter the land of the dead and meet Hades face to face. The dagger that she used to slit her own throat is the exact same dagger Saga tried to use against her when Aiolos rescued her in time 13 years ago.

She is known as Princess Sienna in the English manga and the edited English anime.

Technique: the moves of a Kendo Third Dan
Seiyuu: Yukitoshi Hori (堀 之紀, ほり ゆきとし)
Saori's butler, bodyguard and right-hand man. Was in charge of overseeing the orphans who were to be sent out all over the world to train and become Bronze Saints, and since he was extremely severe and downright abusive at times, most of them are resentful towards him. He always tries to be strong and protect Saori but even the Sanctuary soldiers can defeat him. He starts as a rather flat and downright abusive retairner for the future Saints, later develops as a man who was honor-bound to preotect Saori, and ultimately was the series' comic relief.

[edit] Anime only Characters

Apparently named after Helen of Troy, the famous Queen of Sparta.
  • Gigas

[edit] Notes

  • Supposedly, the Saints represent the 88 constellations, yet according to the official number of Saints given (12 Gold Saints, 24 Silver Saints and 48 Bronze Saints), there are still four unaccounted Saints. However, three Silver Saints and over thirty Bronze Saints never make an appearance.
  • The manga Episode G suggests that the four unaccounted Saints could belong to the Bronze Saints. Due Episode G's unknown status as Canon, this information may be unreliable.
  • In the Mythological Age, Cloth (or Cloths) evolved in God Cloth(s). This was stated by Hypnos and Thanathos in the original manga.
  • In Gigantomachia one of the four missing saints was suggested to be, Mei who wears the Cloth of Berenice.
  • "You can only use an attack on a Saint once, afterwards it will have no effect." This is a famous quote from many Saints, referring to how after they've seen an attack once, they would know how to counter it, and subsequent uses of the same attack would prove to be ineffective.
  • It was stated in the movie pamphlet of Saint Seiya (Gekijoban; the movie) that the cloths of The Southern cross, Shield and Orion are of the silver rank. Note: Kurumada himself participated in the making of the movie, and the cloths as stated in interviews about the movie in the Japanese magazine Newtype.

[edit] Odin's Asgardians (anime only)

  • Polaris Hilda: A beautiful and powerful young woman who is Odin's representative on Earth and priestess of Asgard, she is possessed by the Nibelung Ring (controlled by Poseidon) after rejecting his influence, and sets her sights on world domination in the name of Odin. Her younger sister Freya contacts Saori and asks her and the Saints for help.
Saori quickly sets up a strategy: she will take Hilda's place temporally as the one who prays to avoid the melting of the Polar Ice, while the Bronze Knights fight Hilda's Guardians to reach her. She's finally liberated after fighting Seiya, who awakened the Odin God Robe and the legendary sword Balmung with all Odin Sapphires, and returns to her gentle self. It's also revealed that Poseidon locked her spirit away in the Nibelung Ring as her body was controlled by him, torrturing her psychologically since she could only watch her warriors die one by one.
She's apparently named after Brynhildr, the strongest of the Valkyries in Norse mythology and one of the main characters in Richard Wagner's Tetralogy, as well as the hero Siegfried's love interest.
Seiyuu: Mitsuko Horie (堀江 美都子, ほりえ みつこ)
  • Freya: Younger sister of Polaris Hilda. After being the first person (aside from Alberich) who notices the drastic change in her sister, she seeks out help from Saori and her saints for help, freeing Hyoga from jail (he had been been sent as a scout and then captured) and joining him, therefore she's branded as a traitor by everyone. She was deeply saddened for the battle that she didn't not want to come to be between Merak Hagen and Cygnus Hyoga; Hyoga was her first friend (and possible love interest) among the Bronze Saints, but Hagen was her bodyguard and best friend since childhood.
She's named after Freya, the goddess of love and beauty in Norse mythology.
Seiyuu: Maria Kawamura (川村 万梨阿, かわむら まりあ)

A poor man raised him as his own child, until one day, during hunting, Bud encountered his twin brother Syd and the parents who abandoned him. Hilda made him a shadow God Warrior, in which he'll replace Syd (if he dies) as the real God Warrior. He had hatred against Syd and yet after much convincing from Ikki, he realized that all his actions (helping Syd to defeat Aldebaran, and later Shun when Syd was losing the battle) was due to the fact that he loved his brother very much. He then carried Syd's body into the blizzard, where Bud presumably died, with the wish that he and Syd could again be brothers should they be re-incarnated.

[edit] Angels

The Angels (written with the kanji 天闘士 meaning "Celestial Warriors") are the chosen warriors of the Olympian Gods. The name of their armors is "Glory". They are also some of most powerful foes Athena's Bronze Saints have ever faced. The cloths of Seiya, Shiryu, and Hyoga are all more or less destroyed in their respective battles against the Angels.

  • Icaros/Tōma (斗馬): The only human among the angels. He gives up his humanity to serve Artemis in order to be powerful like a god, and also turns out to be the long lost brother of Marin Eagle. However, by the end of the Heaven Saga movie, he sacrifices himself to protect Athena. Attacks with gold spears and electric charges. His finishing move is "Highest Altitude". He is supposed to have stats and attributes equal to Seiya, as they are the same size and share the same birthday.
    Seiyuu: Hikaru Midorikawa(緑川光), as a child: Fumiko Inoue(井上 富美子)
Based on Icaros, son of Daidalos; he flew too near the sun with wax-attached wings, then he fell into the sea and drowned.
  • Odysseus: Attacks with Energy Spheres. Absorbs energy attacks, can redirect or combine with his own power to make a reverse attack. He is defeated by both Hyōga and Shiryū. Much of the fight initially happens off-screen; Seiya, after regaining the Pegasus Cloth, stumbles upon Shun and Hyoga, both badly beaten by Odysseus, and their cloths smashed. Seiya then also takes a beating from Odysseus and has his cloth shattered as well. However, Shiryu and Hyoga are able to energize their Cosmos and finally (though just barely) kill Odysseus.
    Seiyuu: Hiroki Takahashi(緑川光)
Odysseus (Ulysses): King of Ithaca; husband of Penelope; wandered ten years after fall of Troy before arriving home.
  • Theseus: Uses wings to attack. Arguably the weakest of the 3 Angels, his finishing move is a Solar Beam. He tends to fly more than the other Angels, and is the first of the Angels to be defeated, by both Shun and Ikki. Although Ikki's attack is the one that finishes him off, Ikki would not have been able to achieve the victory without Shun's help.
    Seiyuu: Toshiyuki Morikawa(森川智之)
Named after Theseus, son of Aegeus; slew Minotaur; married and deserted Ariadne; later married Phaedra.
