The Crow Cloth is one of the Silver Cloths, the cloth of the Saint Jamian in Saint Seiya and an unknown Saint in Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas.
The Corvus (Crow) constellation is an ancient constellation, and represents the sacred bird of the god Apollo. Apollo had fallen in love with and seduced a princess, Coronis, but was forced to return to Delphi, leaving the pregnant girl behind. Before going, Apollo stationed a crow (which back then had white feathers) by her palace to look after her. However, Coronis soon fell in love with a human prince, Ischys. The crow caught the princess having an affair with Ischys and flew off to tell Apollo. Depending on the variation, Apollo grows murderously angry with the crow either because he doesn’t believe that Coronis would cheat on him, he blames the crow for not preventing the affair, or because the priestess of Delphi told Apollo what had happened before the crow did. Apollo then began to burn the crow alive, succeeding in charring its feathers to solid black, until he verifies Coronis’s infidelity. Apologetic, he spares the bird’s life and makes the crow one of his sacred creatures, placing it in the sky as a constellation. However, ever since, crows have always had black feathers.
In another story, the crow was sent by Apollo to fetch water from his personal cup, the Crateris, but, seeing a fig tree, procrastinated until the figs were ready to be eaten. Trying to cover his tracks, the crow brought a hydra back with the water to explain the delay, but all three were put in the sky by Apollo, who was angry at the delay. The vengeful hydra forever keeps the crow away from Crateris.
Jamian trained to be a Saint in Scotland by an unknown master. He follows the orders of the Pope, and is among the second group of Silver Saints to attack Seiya and his fellow Bronze Saints. He attempted to abduct Saori with his crows, but Seiya interfered. Saori ended up using her powers as Athena to reflect his crows back at him, and Ikki finished off the pitiable man.
In The Lost Canvas, he was the unnamed 18th Century Crow Silver Saint. He first appears when Alone invaded the Sanctuary, standing over a pillar with a crow in his shoulder, along with Saints wearing the Ophiux and Whale Silver Cloths. He was then sent with a group of soldiers (apparently, his apprentices) on a reconnaissance mission to find out Hades’ whereabouts. During the mission they were attacked by Specters, and all this apprentices were killed, but Crow managed to return to the Sanctuary, although mortally wounded.
Before his death, he informed Athena that Hades had established his stronghold in the Lost Canvas.
