Profile and StatsEdit
Name: Kido Saori
Origin: Saint Seiya
Alias: Athena, Saori-san
Classification: Human, Goddess, Reincarnation of Athena
Kido Saori has long purple hair and blue eyes. She is usually seen wearing a white dress during her time as Kido Saori, before later changing to wear a more simple white, sleeveless robe. During the war against Pallas, Saori now wears a special ring on her right arm, which connects the two sisters to each other.
Growing up as Mitsumasa Kido's spoiled granddaughter, young Kido Saori at first did not get along well with the children who would eventually become her protectors. She treated them like slaves. Seiya was among the few who resisted such treatment.
When she turned thirteen, having learned the truth about her origins from her dying grandfather, Saori had already matured, renouncing her spoiled lifestyle and facing both her duty as the Kido heiress and the crisis in Sanctuary with the support of the children who by then had become Saints. They helped her reluctantly at first – for example, she had to lure a distrustful Seiya in by promising to help him find his sister Seika – but the chain of events that followed convinced them that she was the incarnation of Athena and that the change in her was genuine. They slowly found their devotion and dedication to her, and forgot the grudges they had against her for her past abuses.
A very important figure in the life of the twentieth century Athena was Mitsumasa Kido, in whom she saw a father and guide. His memory burns brightly in her life, and she wanted the Bronze Saints to know that he was indeed an honorable and good man who did not abandon his children out of selfishness or ambition as they all believed, but because he devoted himself to the destiny imposed on him by the stars, to protect Athena. Saori has a loyal follower in her butler, Tatsumi Tokumaru, Kido's former right hand and the only person who knew of her heritage along with his master.
