Saint Seiya - Leo Aiolia with Leo Cloth Free Papercraft DownloadThis papercraft is the Leo Aiolia with the Leo Cloth, one of Gold Saints, based on the anime , the paper model was created by Lestat Pendragon. There is another Gold Saint Taurus Aldebaran at the site.

Leo Aiolia is the first Gold Saint introduced by Masami Kurumada in his manga, along with Saga disguised as the Pope, in vol.1, although their rank wasn't revealed until later volumes. In his first appearance, Aiolia was present during the moment Pegasus Seiya was granted the Pegasus Bronze Cloth, and the status of Athena's Saint.

Aiolia is shown as a reference in the Sanctuary due to his righteousness and strength. He is the young brother of Sagittarius Aiolos, considered a traitor that attempted to kill Athena when she was still a baby. Due to this, Aiolia works hard to prove his loyalty to the goddess and erase the shame his brother's actions bestowed upon them. Even during the time Aiolia thought Aiolos was a traitor, he showed immense respect toward his memory.

In some interview, Masami Kurumada stated that he intended to use Aiolia as the main character of his series, hence his early introduction in the manga, but later he decided to use Pegasus Seiya. Even so, years later, the manga Saint Seiya Episode G was released, authored under Kurumada's commission by Okada Megumu, centered on the Gold Saints and having Aiolia as the main character. This manga is placed seven years before the main story, showing Aiolia when he was still a young saint and was victim of the fake stories that tainted his brother image.

Aiolia is impetuous and has a hot spirit that incites him to action. More than once, this creates some conflicts between him and the calm Aries Mu. Through the story, it is hinted that he and Virgo Shaka are close friends. Aiolia is named after the mythical island Aiolia or Aeolia, residence of Aiolos, the god of winds. Also, due to his talent and power, he is referred to as the reincarnation of Achilles.

Aiolia had mastered the 7th sense, so he is able to move at the speed of the light. It is also hinted that he achieved the 8th sense so he could awaken in Cocytos. Throughout the series, Aiolia has shown telekinetic abilities and, in the anime version, healing power through the use of his Cosmo energy. In a fight Aiolia normally uses two techniques. With his Lightning Bolt: Aiolia blasts the opponent with a massive energy capsule and with his Lightning Plasma, Aiolia generates multiple small weak plasma energy which travel at the speed of light. If he is using the maximum power of his cosmos, the technique allows Aiolia to fire 100 billion rounds of plasma per second at his opponents. From the view of his opponent, he would see himself trapped in a net formed from rays of light.

In Saint Seiya Episode G Aiolia comments that the Lightning Bolt is a stronger attack than the Lightning Plasma because the first is single hit while the second are multiple hits. The Episode G gives Aiolia the power to generate electricity with his Cosmo. Therefore, the Lightning Bolt becomes, at first, an electric discharge created on the vaccuum made by the quick movements of Aiolia fist. Later, the Lightning Bolt is upgraded into a version composed of photons instead of electricity, matching the technique on the original story. Episode G also shows two new techniques that Aiolia has never used in the original series. With the Lightning Fang Aiolia sends his Cosmo energy into the ground, from which it erupts as many pillars of electricity.

This technique can be used to defend himself against incoming attacks, to attack his enemies or to paralyze targets. Aiolia's strongest attack in Episode G is the Photon Burst. Although immensely strong, it demands a high amount of time to be prepared and leaves Aiolia exhausted after used. It consists of three movements: Invoke, when Aiolia expels his Cosmo energy into the area creating many orbs of photon; Drive, when the photons are directed at his enemy, entering its body through the skin; and Burst, when the photons explode, destroying the target inside out. Since it attacks the enemy from the inside, it negates the hardness of armors. In order to get use of the photons power without suffering from the Photon Burst weaknesses, later on the story Aiolia starts to use the photons to create the above mentioned upgraded version of the Lightning Bolt. From this point onwards, Aiolia never used the Photon Burst again as far as the manga progressed.

The Leo Cloth is the gold cloth of the Saint Leo Aiolia in Saint Seiya and Leo Regulus in Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas. It is the highest class of the cloths that Athena's Saints wear, the Gold Cloth.

This is the form the Leo Gold Cloth takes on the manga. Aiolia earned the cloth in Sanctuary, and it was first seen when Aiolia arrived at the hospital to slay the rogue Bronze Saints. Like most Gold Cloth's original forms, it covers most of the body in a golden armor. The Cloth itself doesn't have any special abilities to differentiate itself from the other Gold Cloths. The Cloth was last seen in Hades, one of the five Gold Cloths send to Elyseum by Poseidon. Thanatos destroyed it and the other four Gold Cloths to show them that they weren't going to be saved by the Gold Cloths again. [Source: wikia]
