Background & Personality
In the anime, he was brought to the Sanctuary by Scorpio Kardia. He was partner of Pegasus Tenma in the Sanctuary and he did not get along well with him. During the first mission in the manga he was attacked by Alone-Hades and he was thought to be dead by the other Saints..
Yet, he somehow survived and stumbled upon a dying Tenma. During his attempt to carry him away, a Lemurian young woman called Yuzuriha appeared before them. Yato attacked her, mistaking her as an enemy. But after a conversation, he finds out that she is on the same side. Yuzuriha then took both of them to Jamir, in Tibet, via teleportation. There, the Lemurian Master Hakurei repaired Yato's Cloth with Yuzuriha's blood. After its repair, his Cloth bears some resemblance to the one Pegasus Seiya wore in the Poseidon arc of Kurumada's original manga.
Yato claims that although he is not as strong or important as his partners, he considers fighting alongside them an honor. Yato seems to have a crush on Sasha as he always gets angry when Tenma mentions her, but his actual feelings have not yet been revealed in the story. He also sometimes risks his life to help Tenma; at the beginning of the series, just to prevent Sasha from being sad, but as the series progresses, he does it as Tenma's friend. In recent events, he was the one who discovered the frozen Ship of Hope near the Tibetan area of Jamir. It is here when he reveals to have been a training partner and friend to Leo Regulus. After the Argos ship was released and the Orichalcum was installed in said ship, the Bronze Saints decided to let Yato to pilot the boat while Sisyphos and Tenma made the defense against the Specter leader Aiacos' ship. After entering the Lost Canvas, Yato and most of Athena's army were turned into stone.
After being revived by Athena's Cosmos, he is returned to Earth with the other survivors and is stripped of his Cosmos, therefore, leading a normal human life.
Monoceros (Unicorn Latin) is a constellation in the night sky diffuse northern hemisphere winter, surrounded by Orion to the east, north Gemini, Canis Major constellation south and Hydra to the west. Other neighboring constellations are Canis Minor, Lepus and Puppis.
β Monocerotis is a multiple star that can be resolved with a small telescope. William Herschel discovered its multiplicity in 1781 and described it as "one of the most beautiful views in the sky" .1 Among the stars of this constellation variables include R Monocerotis, T Tauri star embedded in a nebula, as well as V838 Monocerotis , where in 2002 there was an explosion whose origin is not well known. Only two stars have names, Luyten's Star and the Star of Plaskett, of very different nature, the first is a nearby red dwarf and the second is a massive binary star. Near the border with Canis Major is the open cluster M50, about 3000 light years distant from us.
