Its name comes from the Indian deity Shiva.
Despite being a Saint in the service of Athena, Shiva is shown a ruthless warrior, unfair and ruthless, qualities that Phoenix Ikki, fighting against him, against his will recognize. It is devoid of any conscience and governed by the certainty of being right, despite his actions clearly demonstrate the opposite. When apparently kills the little Elena, an inhabitant of the island of rest, Shiva is justified by saying that with his gesture has avoided the child a life of suffering due to the loss of her late grandfather, killed by soldiers of the Great Temple.
Shiva does nothing but enhance the skill and the teachings of his master Shaka, who is very devoted and affectionate. By working out of Virgo Gold Saint, Shiva is immune to fear, including Phoenix Genmaken.
Not much is known of the past of this warrior. Probably born in India, in an unspecified time became a disciple of Virgo Shaka, who submits it to a hard training whose purpose is to be immune to fear. Shiva, along with fellow anti Lotus Agora, becomes Silver Saint and, on behalf of the Pope Ares (Gemini Saga in disguise), was commissioned to kill Phoenix Ikki rest of the Kanon Island, just as are ongoing battles the Bronze Saints and the Gold Saints Twelve Houses.
Shiva and Agora arrive on the island under the command of a group of soldiers. These attack a nearby village with the goal of rescuing Ikki uncovered. Only after the victory of Iki on the soldiers the two Silver Saints descend on the battlefield. Initially Shiva to attack Ikki, while Agora is about meditating. Shiva strikes Ikki repeatedly taking advantage of the paralysis of the Bronze Saints, due to the influence of the cosmos of Shaka, who receives from the sixth house of prayer Agora and managed a block Ikki. The Saint of the Phoenix did not give up and continue the struggle, especially to avenge the apparent death of a child killed by the same place of Shiva,
After a hard fight, however, the block made by Shaka is interrupted by Athena and Agora and Shiva are so defeated by Ikki with Hoyoku Tensho. Before leaving the site of the battle, Ikki observes the bodies of his opponents and, while not regretting their death, hoping that Athena forgive them, although the two were both authors of many evils and sufferings.
