Saori: I don't know anything about that! Also, you keep calling me Athena, but I...
Seiya: I made it just in time! You're Saori, right?
Man: Long ago in Ancient Greece, there was a goddess named Athena. The Saints are the warriors who are the shields to protect Athena.
Man: And to add to it all, you are that same Athena.
Saori: I don't get this! Why do I have to run away!? That's just weird! Something's wrong with this! There's no reason why I should be killed, but then there's also no reason that I should be running!
Seiya: Pegasus Meteor Fist!
Shiryu: Rozan Kōryu-ha!
Camus: Diamond Dust!
Shun: Nebula Chain!
Saori: Who are you guys?
Seiya: We came to protect you!
Saori: Protect me?
Seiya: Don't worry, we'll bring you to the Temple of Athena!
Seiya: Have you ever felt the true cosmos in your heart?
Seiya: OK, let's get going.
Saori: I'm heading out now.
