Cygnus Knight Picture

This is a fan art about Japanese manga/anime Saint Seiya (SS) drawn by Masami Kurumada. My version is very different. The story happens in Greek mythological era. When the Olympian gods fought the Titans, each god formed an army of knights. Hephaestus created all the armors for them. Athena only had 48 knights (according to the number of ancient constellations). When the war ended, half of Athena's army was dead. The survivors became rogue knights because their service was no longer required. Just like the original Greek version, Athena chose to mingle with other gods on mount Olympus - leaving humans at the mercy of mischievous gods and dangerous monsters. Each ex-Athena's knight then handed down their armor and power to their descendants or relatives. Although the war against the titans had ended, people still needed savior because sometimes Olympian gods caused havoc. Hence, the knights were still in business of saving lives.

Arpaktiko (means raptor/prey) is my original character who is the Cygnus Knight. He inherits the armor from an old stranger who nearly died from mortal wound. As a thank-you gift, the old man chose Arpak to inherit the Cygnus Armor because the old man was dying. Arpak is a ship builder and prefers to travel by ship. One day, from his ship, he spots Ouranos - Andromeda Knight - fights against a sea god called Triton. Fiercely, he helps Ouranos. But during the fight, Arpak spots Zestos - Phoenix Knight - lurking around. Could Zestos be the real thief of All Seeing Pearl?
