Story Edit

Past Edit

When Shion was starting his training as cloth repairer, he became fascinated by his abilities of seeing the lives of the dead saints. Then, after being tempted by Balron Lune (who said Shion would be able to see the whole humanity's history forever), he started destroying these cloths, but was stopped by the Altar Cloth, which carried all of Hakurei's emotions. Shion then said a part of him wanted to keep watching over the cloths, Lune attacks him from behind (leaving a scar on his neck) saying that hesitation is one of mankind's greatest sins and goes away alleging that he is "a very busy man, who couldn't waste his time with a hearth full of doubt".

The then cloths use their blood to to keep Shion alive instead of repairing themselves, when Hakurei arrives, he transfuses his own blood into his apprentice's veins, leaving a scar on both's arms.

Sanctuary Edit

He is the one who killed Worm Raimi when the he infiltrated the Sanctuary to attack Athena. After delivering the killing blow on the Specter, he kneels before her, acknowledging her true identity. Two years later, Shion and Dohko are forced to kill three Silver Saints brought back to life by Hades. Feeling guilty, he intents to redeem himself by asking to be sent on a mission in Italy along with Dohko. He has also assisted Pisces Albafica on his fight agaisnt Griffon Minos.

Lost Canvas Edit

Later he has been seen repairing the Saint's Cloths at Sanctuary, and then reuniting with Athena's army in heaven. Together with Sagittarius Sisyphos and Leo Regulus he opened the gate to the Lost Canvas with an "Athena Exclamation". There he survived the voyage through the clouds which turned all non-Gold Saints (except Pegasus) into stone and defeated Acheron Charon shortly after.

Recently he was shown arriving to the First Demon Temple, Mercury, along with Athena, Regulus and Tenma, which they passed through freely, arriving then to the Second Demon Temple, Venus. Shion then meets the guardian of the temple, Balron Lune, and challenges him.

After a ferocious battle that made Shion confront his past sins and encounter the Saints of the past in the eternal torment of cocytus, the Aries Gold Saint managed to use a technique that he learned empirically from his master, the "Praesepe Returning Spirits Wave", thus obliterating Lune. The Specter then realized that Shion was able to be the link between the past and future generation, as the future Pope of Sanctuary. Afterwards, Shion proceeded to rejoin his comrades.
