The Southern Cross 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 Cloth.
Constellation and MythologyEdit
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.
While not appearing in the manga and anime, the Southern Cross 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
The Southern Cross 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 SaintsEdit
- Southern Cross Thunder Bolt (サザンクロス・サンダーボルト, Sazan Kurosu Sandāboruto): 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.
