The Perseus Cloth is the cloth of the Saint Algol in Saint Seiya, the saint Mirfak in Saint Seiya : omega and an unknown Saint in Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas.
Perseus Algol is one of the Silver Saints sent to kill the Bronze Saints in the Sanctuary Arc.
In the manga, he was sent by the Santuary’s Grand Pope as the leader of the second group along with two Silver Saints, Kerberos Dante and Auriga Capella, to finish the job of the failed first group to kill the Bronze Saints. After Capella was killed by Phoenix Ikki’s Phoenix Genma-Ken, Ikki decided to leave, but gave the remaining Bronze Saints a bit of warning, stating the Algol is not the same as the other Silver Saints. Algol states that he could defeat all of them with the power of his Medusa Shield, and turns Shun into stone. Seiya, who took a fall earlier to protect Saori, was critically injured, and Shiryu stated that he must be given medical attention quickly.
