Beast King Golion (TV series)
In 1985 (about a year after the Galran attack on Altea), Galran soldiers recovered the corpse of Raible's infant son Roland, who had been shot to death by Galrans alongside his mother. Fifteen years later, using the genetic material from the corpse, Honerva used her magic to give Saint the appearance of a 16 year old Roland. Saint was then deployed to Altea, where he met Princess Fala and the Golion team.
Saint gained the confidence of the Golion team, and even trained as a reserve pilot. He was assigned to the control room. He slowly poisoned Raible to weaken him. Working with Prince Imperial Sincline, Golion was hit by a huge space cannon, seemingly destroyed.Saint also locked himself in the control room, and Raible and the guards attempted to break in.
But Golion was not destroyed. As the guards breached the door, Saint fired at Raible, but instead struck Hys, killing her, Saint split the scene soon after to escape the guards. Later as Saint tried to leave the castle he was confronted with the GoLion team and Raible. Saint pretended to put away his gun only to fire in Fala's direction however Raible took the shot and blasted Saint in the heart. As the Golion team left to treat Raible's injury, Saint managed to crawl accross the floor and say that this can't happen to Galra's best spy before dying of his wound.
Comparisons to Voltron
Unlike Garrett, who in Voltron is identified as a clone made from the same machine that made Lotor's clone earlier, Saint seems to have been a pre-existing Galran spy who willingly allowed his body to be transformed into a clone of a Raible's teenage son. The lack of footage of Saint in his original form allowed this change to be done easily.
While Garret wanted an army of clones with himself as leader, Saint wanted Galra to take the opportunity to attack the front gate.
In GoLion, Raible's son had not been named when he was with his father, but during his separation from Raible, and shortly before his death, his mother named him Roland. By contrast, the imposter was named Saint, which seemed to have been his original name.
- Saint is never seen in his original Galran form unless he was one of the Black Army soldiers seen digging up the grave.
- Saint's name can be considered intentionally ironic as his actions are both cruel, and merciless, contrasting with the meaning of the word Saint.
