The Dark Kingdom
The Four Generals
The four generals work for the Dark Kingdom under Queen Beryl acting as
her main minions to do her bidding whether it be to gain energy, find
the ginzuishou and to kill the Sailor Senshi.
Jadeite is the first of the four generals, appearing in episode 1, and his
goal is to obtain energy from the humans on Earth for the Dark Kingdom. He
frequently appears on Earth in his many identities (why Usagi can never
remember what he looks like is a mystery; he shows up like five times in
front of her.) He is mainly a failure in his attempts to gain energy.
Eventually he discovers the identities of Moon, Mars, and Mercury in episode
13 after he challenges them to a fight and sees them transform, but Beryl
locks him in a crystal block for eternity for messing up so many times, and
he is never able to tell anyone his knowledge.
Nephrite is the second general, making his arrival in episode 14, and he goes
around Earth under a fake name, Sanjouin Masato, trying to gain energy like
Jadeite before him. However, since he fails at that, he tries to find the
ginzuishou later on. His job forces him to become involved with a human girl,
Naru, whom he first thinks is Sailor Moon and then thinks she might have the
ginzuishou. He eventually falls in love with her or at least starts to care
about her. Nephrite is not on good terms with his fellow general, Zoicite;
that turns out to be his downfall. As he's jealous of Nephrite and because
Nephrite turns somewhat good anyway, Zoicite has him killed in episode 24.
Zoicite is the third general who has Nephrite killed off. He appears pretty
early on with Nephrite (I don't remember which episode). His job is to find
the seven nijizuishou, which when brought together form the ginzuishou.
Zoicite is extremely vain, petty, and feminine. His lover and teacher is
Kunzite, the fourth general. Zoicite is killed by Queen Beryl after he
attacks Tuxedo Kamen when Beryl told him not to. His last wish is to die
pretty, which Kunzite grants him in episode 35 as he dies among flowers.
Kunzite is Zoicite's lover and mentor. He works with Zoicite later on to
get the seven nijizuishou. The most powerful of the four, he is also the
leader of them. After Zoicite dies, he continues to try and trap Sailormoon
into giving him the ginzuishou. He dies in episode 44 when he attacks
Sailormoon with these boomerang/knife things, but she returns them with her
moon stick. They slice him, and he dies.
A type of mass rather than any substantial form, she's the leader of the
entire Dark Kingdom, and she wants control of Earth. When Beryl is hurt
in episode 46 after Mamoru, previously brainwashed, evil Prince Endymion,
throws a rose at her, Metallia infuses herself into her. However, even
her own energy can't defeat Princess Serenity, and she dies when Serenity
uses the power of the ginzuishou.
Beryl works for Metallia, but everyone else is underneath her. She wants
to rule Earth, and she is in love with Prince Endymion who rejects her.
She can't understand why he, the Prince of Earth, wants to be with the
Princess of the Moon, but she kills Endymion and Serenity in the past
anyway. Beryl in the 20th century kidnaps and brainwashes Mamoru, who
becomes evil Prince Endymion, but Sailormoon eventually restores his
memories. Beryl confronts Sailormoon with Metallia, but she is killed in
episode 46 when Princess Serenity uses the full power of the ginzuishou
with the other Sailor Senshi's help.
