Pegasus Knight Picture

This is a fan art about Japanese manga/anime Saint Seiya 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.

Tristan inherits Pegasus Armor from his father who was killed during a battle against Ares, Greek God of war. By donning the armor, he becomes Pegasus Knight. Because he knows that gods can't be killed, he swears to fight Ares by helping anyone who becomes Ares' victim. At one point, Tristan meets a formidable enemy: Phoenix Knight. Although he realizes that he himself is gay, he never expects to be attracted to a villainous knight.
