A long time ago there was a peaceful universe called the silver millennium. In the silver millennium there was the nine planets plus the moon, each with their respective rulers. Each planet had a princess who also had the duty of protecting the princess of the moon. On the moon, the ruler was Queen Serenity, and she had a daughter named Princess Serena. The Princess fell in love with the prince of the moon, Darien. One day they were to be married, but an evil force called the negaforce came and destroyed Earth. He was sent to protect the moon kingdom, along with the princesses from the other planets, however, they failed miserably, and everybody except the Queen died. The only way she could save them was with the Silver Imperium Crystal. However, if she used it she would die. She decided there was no choice, so she took the crystal and trapped everyone inside, including the nega-people and sent them to the future. This was so her daughter and all of the other princesses and Darien could be reborn and live again. There were two guardian cats, Luna and Artimus which she sent and gave them the instructions that if the Negaverse ever broke free that they would have to gather the princesses (scouts) and they would have to beat off the negaverse. Once she sent them all, she died.
Sailor Moon and it's characters do not belong to me in any way and there is no money whatsoever being made off of this website. It was created so that anime fans like you could come and find the information they are looking for. Pictures from this site have been gathered from other sites with their permission, therefore they do not belong to me either. Although nothing truly belongs to me, I have spent hours typing the information I have gathered from things like the shows, manga, and plain old common knowledge, so I prefer that if you want to use it ASK! Thank you!
