Plot[ edit ] The storyline of Omega takes place 25 years after the Holy Wars of the 20th century narrated in the original manga and its anime adaptation. The goddess Athena is still on Earth after reincarnating to continue her duty of protecting peace against several antagonistic deities.
Athena and a new generation of Saints prepare to face new threats that lurks in this new era, in which Pegasus Seiyathe protagonist of Kurumada's manga, is revered as a Saint of legend and one of Athena's Gold Saints. List of Saint Seiya Omega characters As an installment separate from Kurumada's work, the series will introduce characters new to the Saint Seiya fictional universe, that will make use of elements already established within it.
The Cosmo essence, one of the basic concepts of Saint Seiya, is expanded in Omega with the addition of specific elemental properties: In the second season, several Saints including the main characters have their cloths upgraded, sporting a new design much more reminiscent of Kurumada's original designs, and are stored in special boxes like in the original continuity.
She is also able to see through the shadows of others as seen later in the storyline, when she is depicted kneeling before Garuda Aiacos, as her right arm.

She was stopped by Leo Regulus, whom she engaged in battle.

Violate's apparent physical power was confirmed when she lifted bare-handed the whole ship that the Saints were repairing. When Regulus manages to see through her ability, it is explained that she merges the dead from the 8th prison of Hell into the shadow so they can grab the enemy to stop their movement.
She is killed by Leo Regulus' Lightning Plasma after he used his superior Cosmo to make Violate lose her influence over the dead. She reappeared some time later trying to attack Aiacos, although she stopped her blow before even hitting him; later it was revealed that it was Hades who controlled the dead body of Violate.
Violate is another exclusive character from Lost Canvas manga. On a side note, Behemoth Violate is the only female Specter to date. In the anime adaptation, Ivan appeared as Hades' bodyguard in Italy. The Lost Canvas manga concluded without an active involvement of Ivan in any event. He first appears testing Rhadamanthys' loyalty towards Hades, later he is seen in the entrance of Lost Canvas removing the hearts of soldiers and unknown Saints.
If the weight of the heart measured by individual purity is the same as the Feather of Maatthan the opponent continues alive, otherwise he is killed. Sisyphos managed to overcome Pharaoh's technique and exterminate the Specter, however, before his death Pharaoh put a curse into the gates, that only a Big Bang would destroy the entrance to the Lost Canvas.
He appeared rowing his boat through the sea of clouds, singing aboard of the Ship of Hope, where he is enchanted by the beauty of Yuzuriha and how she would make a nice souvenir to sell. During the sailing, he tricks Sasha by asking her hair as payment to the crossing, with which he sealed her powers as Athena.
Killed by Aries Shion. An exceptionally powerful soldier of Hades' army, wielder of the power of the Basilisk's venom, and a member of Wyvern Rhadamanthys' elite Specters squad. He is first introduced into the plot of Lost Canvas trying to restrain and calm down a rage-driven Rhadamanthys, in the Sixth Demon Temple: Afterward, he is sent by the Underworld commander to infiltrate Athena's Sanctuary in an extremely important mission.
Sylphid is completely devoted to Rhadamanthys, the only man he never was able to defeat. Pandora disapproves of Sylphid's devotion, while Hades remains indifferent to it, as he knows it makes Sylphid one of the strongest Specters.
Successfully invading Sanctuary and witnessing Alraune Queen's defeat at Dohko's hand, Sylphid reveals himself with a mild gust of Basilisk-poisoned wind, sensing divine blood in Libra's veins, and vows to kill him, as he considers him unworthy of sharing Rhadamanthys' condition of divine blood carrier.
Against all odds, Dohko survives, much to Sylphid's surprise, and reminisces about Pisces Albafica's similar technique. Having both gone the distance in bloody combat, and embracing in a final effort, Sylphid finally dies a victim of Dohko's powerful burst of Cosmo, realizing the warmth that humans can treasure within themselves. He was introduced formally into the storyline by being summoned by the fierce judge of the Underworld, Wyvern Rhadamanthys, to whom he shows undying loyalty.
Valentine is also one of the exceptionally powerful soldiers of Hades' army. Along with Basilisk Sylphid, he is part of the elite of the Specters, and also a member of Rhadamanthys forefront squad.
He is sent by the Underworld commander in his stead, acting as Rhadamanthys' substitute, in an important mission to Sanctuary. Instead, Valentine stays at the Saturnus Temple, guarding it meanwhile Rhadamanthys suffers excruciating pain as effect of Alone's blood.
Pandora meets with him, wishing to enter the Temple. Valentine refuses, to prevent further loss of face for his commander, and is therefore challenged by the woman, who revels in the Specter's humiliation. He is subjected to torture by Pandora, and he reminisces about his past. Pandora manages to break free of the attack and vanquishes the Harpy Specter. After his lord Rhadamanthys resurfaces, all Valentine receives from him in return for his loyalty is cruel punishment for his defiance.
Valentine then, in disbelief from his lord's reaction, prepares to kill Pandora. His attack is then deflected by Wyvern, who retaliates with his Greatest Caution technique. Valentine finally succumbs, as he desired, being a Specter until the very end. It was revealed, that ten years before these events, Valentine escorted Rhadamanthys on a mission to destroy a village, being then challenged by Taurus Hasgard. He is found by Libra Dohko in Sanctuary, in Athena's Chambers, on a mission to destroy the Cloth belonging to the goddess, during what he decapitated many of Athena's soldiers.
Discovering the vial of Athena's blood concealed within the shield of Libra, Queen turns the tide of the battle destroying it. He is featured in Lost Canvas, along fellow Specter Alraune Queen, who he considers a close partner, infiltrating Sanctuary, on a mission to destroy Athena's Cloth, until they are both discovered by the Libra Gold Saint.

Knowing the power of the weapons of the Libra Cloth, Gordon recklessly challenges Dohko to wield any of the weapons of Libra. As he prepared to destroy Athena's statue and defile her temple, his right arm is severely injured by a Dragon made of pure Cosmo. Gordon then realizes Dohko has deemed that hour as a moment when the Arms of Libra must be wielded, to defend justice. Obsessed with destroying the weapons of Libra to make his Axe the strongest weapon, Gordon finds himself unable to.
He is finally defeated by Dohko, who disables his arm and therefore his axe.
