About Pegasus Seiya

Seiya - The chosen Saint of the god-slaying Pegasus Cloth

Seiya (also known as Pegasus Seiya) is the main protagonist of the Saint Seiya manga and anime series written and illustrated by Masami Kurumada. Seiya is one of Athena's the 88 mythical warriors known as the Saints who serve justice and protect peace on Earth. Seiya is also a member of the Bronze Saints and is protected by the Pegasus Constellation, which is why he wears the Pegasus Cloth. Seiya possessed great potential from an early age. Having been subjected to the brutal militaristic regime Sanctuary from the age of six, Seiya became an expert in hand-to-hand combat and can instinctively analyze his opponent's strengths, weaknesses and techniques, being able to pick apart and counter nearly any technique he's seen once.

Saint Seiya is a Greek mythology-themed Japanese manga series by Masami Kurumada that was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1985 to 1990. The manga follows five valiant Saints (or Knights, in some adaptations) who are empowered by the mystical energy of the Cosmos. The Saints fight wearing sacred armor called Cloths, the designs of which derive from the various constellations the individual characters have adopted as their guardian symbols. The Saints have sworn to defend the reincarnation of the Greek goddess Athena in her battle against other Olympian gods who want to dominate Earth.

Seiya and his sister Seika were both orphans living at an orphanage. Six years before the start of the series, Seiya was separated from his sister and forced to train in Greece for the Galaxian Wars. In Greece, Seiya is trained by Marin and meets a rival by the name of Cassios. Seiya is a very passionate and impulsive person, often making brash decisions. In fact, his only notable weaknesses derive from his tendency to be impatient, reckless, and immature. However, he is also brave, kind-hearted and selfless, always willing to sacrifice himself for justice, his friends, and Athena. His most notable characteristic is his absolute determination and refusal to ever give up, even when faced with impossible odds.

Pegasus Seiya is the reincarnation of the previous Pegasus Saint, Tenma, and also of the First Pegasus Saint, who fought alongside Athena at the end of the Mythological Era, and was the first human to ever harm Hades, the God of the Underworld. Just a few of his extensive powers and abilities include flight, telepathy, and atomic destruction. His training has also given him in-depth knowledge of astronomy and mythology, as well as a working knowledge of human anatomy which he can utilize against his foes.
