History: The re-incarnation of one of the four Senshi of the Outer Rim who were responsible for guarding the Silver Millennium from threats from outside the Solar System. Sailor Neptune does not have a trusting nature, and is immediately biased against anything that originates outside the known Solar System. She and her partner/lover Sailor Uranus were on a mission to find the three holy talismans that would help the true Messiah save the world before the Death Busters could find them and present them to the Messiah of Silence who would destroy the world. This placed the Outers at first with odds with the Inner Senshi, who valued life above all else. It is later discovered that the Talismans were in fact within Sailors Neptune, Pluto and Uranus. Neptune's Talisman is the Aqua Mirror and amplifies her already powerful psychic abilities. Pluto, Uranus and Neptune were again put at odds with the Inners when they tried to kill Hotaru who they learned was the Soldier of Death, Sailor Saturn. Hotaru had become the best friend of Chibi-Usa and a friend to all the other Inners as well. After the Death Busters conflict the Outers started working more closely with the Inners but still kept to their own agenda from time to time.

Comments: Created by Naoko Takeuchi.

In the anime the Senshi of the Outer Rim were not present of the Sailor Moon Super S arc, but in the manga they were. In the English version her lesbian relationship with Sailor Uranus was changed into a deep friendship between two cousins.
