Profile
Kaioh Michiru Kaioh Michiru is a 16-year-old, first-year high school student (grade 10) at the elite Mugen Gakuen. Michiru is also the reincarnation of Sailor Neptune (セーラーネプチューン), the soldier of embrace. Her task, as one of the Sailor Senshi of the Outer Solar System ("Outer Senshi"), is to protect the galaxy from outside invaders. In this lifetime, she is partnered with Sailor Uranus, a.k.a. Tenoh Haruka.

Generally reserved, polite, and elegant, Michiru is a lady through and through, exuding a quiet maturity, beauty, and grace beyond her age. She acts and appears like an adult, and she is the picture of sophistication. She is also talented - she is a reknowned violinist; a famous painter (in the anime only); and an excellent swimmer. Whereas her partner is more outspoken and brash, Michiru tends to be more considerate, kind, and tactful, especially in the manga, where she seems a lot gentler. In the anime, she is particularly kind when it comes to younger girls, of whom she is fond, thinking them to be "cute." In both the anime and manga, she has an obvious maternal streak. At times, however, her competitive nature can cause her to be harsh, and in the manga, she can be vain and have a scary temper. In the anime, she is a bit of a flirt, but mostly just with Haruka. Despite her seemingly quiet nature, however, she is just as driven as her partner. As Sailor Neptune, she will do whatever it takes to fulfill her mission, even at the cost of her own life. She can be cold and ruthless when necessary, even though in the anime, she tends to be more open than Uranus regarding her doubts about her actions.
