From left to right: Vesta, Pallas, Ceres, and Juno.

In the manga, they are actually the Sailor Quartet--commonly referred to in English as Asteroid Senshi, because they are named the first four major asteroids to be discovered. They had been placed in a deep sleep, awaiting the time when they could become the future protectors of Sailor Chibi Moon, analogous to Princess Serenity's four soldiers (the Inner Senshi) and to Prince Endymion's four generals (the Shitennou). However, Queen Nehellenia woke them prematurely and forced them to work for her. At her defeat, they return to their true forms and to their long sleep. During the fifth story arc, they accompany Sailor Chibi Moon from the future to help in the fight against Sailor Galaxia.

In the anime, the Quartet are never Sailor Senshi, coming instead from Elysion, the land of dreams. They began working for Queen Nehellenia when she heard them playing and offered to keep them from ever growing old. She changed their dreams into the physical form of Amazon Stones, instructing them to use these to remove the "dream mirrors" of humans. They are dedicated to this task, but still generally spend more time playing than working. When this goes too far for Nehellenia's tastes, she drains their powers and in the end they help the Sailor Senshi and Pegasus. They part ways saying they will definitely meet the Sailors again, even though they never show up in any of the series after SuperS.

She stated that she hates dried squid. She summons only plant-based lemures.

In the anime, she speaks in third person and is equally childish as she is in the manga. Despite being chilidsh she has showed some signs that she is clever, such as pointing out that the arrangement of the curtains is wrong in one episode (when no one else saw it), setting up popular dentist office in another and using a doll to manipulate the Sailors in yet another. She often summons ball-like lemures. Sometimes she uses dolls as part of her attacks, but this is not as prevelant as balls. She also likes to attack a group of people at a time rather than one at a time.

IVNO REGINA (Queen Juno) on a coin celebrating Julia Soaemias. ...


In the anime, she often speaks with a hard edge. She tends to dress in biker outfits outside of her circus uniform even though she never rides a bike within canon. She likes to let her targets attain their dreams before she takes their dream mirrors which may be an oddball reference to the mothering aspect of the goddess Juno. She always summons male lemures, the only one of the Quartet to do so at all.

She tends command lemures that are animal-themed.
