Orphee was introduced by Masami Kurumada in vol.23 of his manga, and later in episode 129 of the anime.
Although it is not explicitedly stated that Lyra Orphée and the Orpheus of Greek mythologies are one and the same, though their respective stories occurred in different timelines. It can generally be assumed that the Silver Saint is, at least, the reincarnation of the tragic Greek character. Both men share the same exceptional musical talent, and both men have loved and lost a woman by the name of Eurydice.
Upon meeting Hades, Lyra Orphée played his lyre, and even the cold, misanthropic Greek God of Death could not resist the tragic melody, which reminded him of the beauty of humanity that he felt mankind had lost. Hades agreed to allow Eurydice to resume her life among the living so long as Orphée fulfilled one specification: That he must put his faith in the Greek God and not once turn back to check on Eurydice as they exit the world of the dead to the land of the living. Failure to comply would result in Eurydice becoming permanently attached to the otherworld. Orphée accepted the reasonable proposition, and the two began their journey home.
Pandora, faithful right-hand woman of Hades (later on, revealed to be the caretaker and "sister" of Andromeda Shun, whose body was to be used as a vessel for Hades' soul), was also in audience to Orphée's performance, and noted the Silver Saint's abilities could be very useful; after all, not even the darkest of Gods was able to resist his music. Thus, she devised a plan to trick Orphée into remaining in the Underworld, and ordered Sphinx Pharaoh, a Spectre, to carry it out. At this point, Orphée and Eurydice were getting closer and closer home. Suddenly, a bright circular light greeted them, and the Silver Saint naturally assumed it to be the glow of the sun. As he turned back to rejoice with Eurydice, he was shocked to find 80% of her body transforming into stone. Realizing what he had done, Orphée dropped to his knees in anguish, his heart heavy with sorrow and his eyes full of tears. The bright light faded, and so did his chance to bring back his lost lover to life.
The Silver Saint would keep his word and remain in the Underworld, decorating the spot where Eurydice stood with beautiful flowers- a rarity found only in the glorious Elysium fields. As gratitude to the kindness that Hades displayed, he swore allegiance to the Death God, and played for him at the palace once every thirteen days. On Earth, the Grand Pope and the other Saints of Athena assumed the Lyra Saint must have died after years of being absent without permission. Orphée would not be seen again until years later, when Pegasus Seiya and Andromeda Shun invaded the Underworld in the holy war against Hades.
When Orphée discovered the truth that Pharaoh was responsible for creating the artificial bright light with the aid of Pandora's mirror, the Silver Saint dropped his loyalty to Hades and challenged the Spectre to a fight to the death. Sphinx accepted, and almost immediately went after the G string in Orphée's lyre, the source of the Saint's attacks. However, Orphée was able to improvise, and managed to reflect Pharaoh's deadly attack back at him. At the same time, Orphée found himself in tears from finally acknowledging fate, the idea that flowers, stars, human, and all life on this world only live once, and that it was wrong to temper with fate and forcefully keep someone alive. Humans only live and die once, the main reason why life was so beautiful and unique. Eurydice wept, happy that her love was finally able to acknowledge fate and redeem himself as a true Saint of Athena.
Pharaoh asked him what he would do now, and Orphée replied that he would fight to defeat Hades, as a true Saint of Athena would. Pharaoh, realizing Orphée was going to attack him, quickly prepared himself. Unfortunately, the strings on his instrument was broken by Orphée, and he saw that the Silver Saint played the song by holding the broken G string with his teeth. Pharaoh was quickly defeated, and Orphée exchanged goodbyes with Eurydice one last time, both of them happy for Orphée's redemption.
Before he could even touch his lyre, however, the 3 Judges of Hell suddenly made their presence known. Pandora announced that she had summoned them as part of the audience, meaning Orphée had miscalculated. The Silver Saint revised his scheme to include the Judges in the hypnotization, and began to play. All appeared to have went well, and everyone sat quietly in their seats, hypnotized. Orphée stopped playing and prepared to attack Hades- until he found a beam of energy piercing a large hole from his back through his chest. Wyvern Rhadamanthys stood before Orphée, and revealed that he hadn't bothered listening to the melody; he had long suspected that the Silver Saint would soon revert to Athena due to the current holy war, and Orphée finally proved him correct. At this point, Seiya and Shun jumped out of the metal case to Orphée's defense.
Despite the fatal wound, Orphée still managed to carry on his plan to kill Hades. Much to his shock and disbelief, he found a familiar face seated at the throne of Hades: The Andromeda Bronze Saint. Yet, at the same time, the real Shun was still fighting by Seiya's side! Setting aside the confusion he felt, Orphée continued his game plan and charged after Hades. Distracted by other two Bronze Saints, Rhadamanthys was unable to protect his King as he watched the Lyra Saint decapitate and tear Hades' body into pieces. Unfortunately for Orphée, the body was a mere illusion of the Death God.
The wound on Orphée's chest proved too much for the Silver Saint to continue battling, and, with his last dying moments, Orphée sacrificed his body to give Seiya a good shot at Rhadamanthys. Seiya reluctantly threw his Pegasus Ryusei Ken at both Rhadamanthys and the fatally injured Lyra Saint. Orphée succumbed to his massive injuries shortly after. With his last breath, Orphée entrusted the life of Athena to the two young Bronze Saints and whispered the name of his lost lover, Eurydice, for they would be finally be reunited again. Content at last, the Silver Saint of Lyra closed his eyes for the final time, dying as a loyal Saint and as a true lover.
Unlike either Orpheus of the movie or the Orphée of the Hades chapter, however, Mime was depicted as a fairly cynical and misanthropic character. His disgust for mankind and philosophy on the value of human life stemmed from circumstances surrounding his tragic past. As a result, Mime is often praised as one of the more fleshed out characters of the series, even though he was not created by the original manga-ka. His popularity is also boosted by the fact that he came close to defeating Ikki -- a rare feat. Though Ikki ultimately won the fight, he fell unconscious to the brink of death moments after Mime died.
