The Canis Major Cloth is the cloth of the Saint Sirius in Saint Seiya and an unknown Saint in Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas.
The Canis Major constellation represents the hunting dog of Orion, Sirius, which could be seen as helping him hunt the Hare (Lepus), or perhaps even to fight off Taurus. This is the bigger of the two dog constellations for Orion, the smaller representing the dog Laelaps.
After the two groups of Silver Saints had failed to kill the Bronze Saints, take back the Gold Cloth and kidnap Saori Kido. The Grand Pope felt he had to send a Gold Saint to Japan to finish it all. The one he sent was Leo Aiolia, the brother of the traitor Sagittarius Aiolos. The Grand Pope didn’t trust him completely so he sent three Silver Saints to keep tabs on him. It turned out they were true about their suspicions, since Aiolia saw no honor in fighting an injured foe. So as the Gold Saint didn’t finish of neither Pegasus Seiya or Ophiuchus Shaina, the three Silver Saints made their entrance.
Sirius was the first one to reveal himself with Hercules Algethi and Musca Dio behind him. Sirius immediately accused Aiolia of being soft, and seeing as he was the brother of a traitor, the Grand Pope had told them to keep an eye on Aiolia. The Gold Saint responded that he would finish his mission, and said that they should return to the
Sanctuary. Yet they did not trust him and Algethi took Seiya by surprise and attacked the Bronze Saint. But the attack was interrupted in mid-air by Dio who wanted a piece of Seiya and thus used his own attack on him. But his attack was also interrupted, this time by Sirius who said they should compete for the final blow. Thus Algethi threw him up in the air once more and the three Silver Saints prepared to finish him of the fastest they could. But suddenly Seiya disappeared, he was taken in by the Sagittarius Gold Cloth and defeated the Silver Saints in an instant.
The Canis Major Saint was killed early on and off screen in The Lost Canvas. The previous wearer of the Cloth comes back when Hakurei calls for those who fought with him in the previous Holy War.
