Official Site: Shonen Jump

is a protagonist in the Saint Seiya media franchise, which originated in the manga of the same name, written and illustrated by Masami Kurumada, that subsequently inspired an anime series, soundtracks, OVAs, films, video games, and other collectible. He is one of the strongest characters in the series, although his gentle disposition and kind nature tend to hold him back from using his full power until he has no other choice but to do so. Shun is also the younger brother of Phoenix Ikki, a fellow Bronze Saint.

As Masami Kurumada uses the Osamu Tezuka's Star System technique (a stable cast of characters which play a different or similar role in the author's various works, sometimes with the same personality and sometimes with an entirely new one), he gave Shun a design closely resembling Jindai Naoto from Otoko Zaka, the manga he wrote and drew one year before Saint Seiya, and Kirikaze from Fūma no Kojirō, written and drawn several years before Saint Seiya.

Many newcomers to the series have mistaken Shun for a female character, since Andromeda is a feminine constellation and the anime adaptation feminized Kurumada's original design of the Andromeda Cloth. A similar reference was made by Kurumada in the manga, before it was adapted to anime, when Ikki befriends a girl named Esmeralda whose only difference from Shun is her gender and her blonde hair.

His hair is brown in the manga, but was modified to green in the anime adaptation to generate a better color balance. Kurumada explained in interviews that he gave the Andromeda Cloth the same color that identifies the Andromeda Galaxy found in the constellation of the same name.
