The Cerberus Cloth is one of the Silver Cloths, the cloth of the Saint Dante in Saint Seiya, the Saint Dorer in Saint Seiya : Omega and an unknown Saint in Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas.
The Cerberus constellation was a former constellation of the three headed hellhound of the god Hades. A child of the monster Echidna, Cerberus guarded the entryway of the Underworld, allowing the dead in but forbidding them to leave, as well as stopping the living from getting inside. However, living people, usually heroes, could get around the enormous canine by giving it small cakes as treats, and slipping past while Cerberus was occupied by the food. The musician Orpheus managed to tame the dog with his songs.
As his Twelfth and final Labor, the hero Heracles was commanded to bring Cerberus back from the Underworld alive. Heracles goes first to Hades personally and asks the god’s permission. Hades allows it on two conditions: Heracles is not allowed to use any weaponry on Cerberus and must return the dog as soon as he was done with the Labor. Heracles manages to subdue Cerberus by wrestling him, and then dragging the dog into the living world. Keeping his word, Heracles returns Cerberus directly afterwards.
The constellation was once depicted as being grasped by Heracles, but the constellation was eventually dismantled and became a part of the Heracles constellation.
After the supposedly execution of the Bronze Saints by the 1st. squadron, the second group called the “Raptors’ Squadron” made up of Cerberus Dante, Ophiuchus Shaina, Auriga Capella, Crow Jamian and their leader Perseus Algol were sent to Japan. Their mission was to abduct miss Saori Kido, retrieve the Gold Cloth of Sagittarius and destroy the colosseum. The latter objective was completed and they went to look for the others, in that time Saori Kido reached the Colosseum. With the kidnapping of Saori by Crow Jamian, the Bronze Saints was drawn to their location. When Saori projected her Cosmo, they all thought it might be Athena. Yet as they as they came to her location, they noticed it was Phoenix Ikki that had defeated Jamian and forgot about that huge cosmo from before.
Cerberus Dorer is the Silver Saint in the constellation Cerberus in the Saint Seiya Omega. He uses the element of Fire.
Dorer volunteered to retrieve the false Athena from the hands of the Bronze Saints who allegedly kidnapped. Thought to be in an area where it may be observed mineral legendary Stardust Sand, so he could kill two birds with one stone, recovering the goddess and getting the precious mineral. Dore was right, and finds a cave where Aria removes the Stardust Sand alongside Koga, Yuna, Souma and Raki, the young apprentice of Kiki, the cloth repairer. The three Bronze Saints attack Dorer, but he defeated them quickly after using his technique Kerberos Divide, which triplicates him. Then he went after Raki, trying to learn Kiki’s whereabouts, but Aria protected her. Koga got up and stood up against Dorer with his technique Pegasus Ryusei Ken. Dore responded with his own technique, Kerberos Hell Flame, using it from his three bodies at once. However, Koga still managed to overcome the flames and defeat Dorer.
In The Lost Canvas, the unnamed 18th Centruy Auriga Silver Saint was sent to Italy along with Auriga Saint, Sagitta Saint, Canis Major Saint and Musca Saint to investigate Specter activities surrounding a cathedral near a forest, where they were killed by Specters.
Cerberus, along with Auriga and Sagitta, was resurrected by Hades, and sent back to the Sanctuary to kill Athena. They were ultimately finished by Aries Shion and Libra Dohko. Before they died, their souls returned to good and asked Athena for forgiveness.
