Sanctuary soldiers are the lowest ranking members of Athena's army. They wear no Cloth and have no mastery over Cosmo. They can be counted by the hundreds and are subordinated to the Saints. Although they have no superhuman abilities, their devotion and love for Athena is as fierce as the Saints'. A small unit of them accompanied a group of Saints led by goddess Athena, Aries Shion, Leo Regulus and Sagittarius Sisyphos into the Lost Canvas aboard the Ship of Hope.
