Encyclopedia > Blue Saphir

Blue Saphir (romanized to baruru safiru, also known as Blue Safiru and Blue Sapphire) is one the members of the Black Moon Clan, a group of antagonists from the Sailor Moon R series. He is the younger brother to Prince Diamond, and the Alchemist of the group. He is associated with the sapphire gemstone, and in addition to wearing the black crecent and black crystal earings of his clan, Sapphire wears an elegant blue jacket that is studded shimmering white shards of what appears to be glass. The Black Moon Clan is a fictional clan existing in the 30th century in the Sailormoon metaverse. ... Sailor Moon (in full, 美少女戦士セーラームーン, Bishōjo Senshi Sērā Mūn, literally Beautiful young girl soldier Sailor Moon) is the title of the famous series originally authored as a manga by Naoko Takeuchi that resulted in multiple other types of media, including anime, musical theatre, video games and recently tokusatsu...


Sapphire was considerably more cautious and rational than the rest of his Black Moon Compatriots. He preffered to work with droids over serving his unpredictable, easily swayed older brother. Sapphire, unlike anyone else, felt the loss of the dead Akayashi Sisters, but this was from a tactical standpoint; Sapphire had no love interests. Sapphire attempted to question the intentions of Wiseman, and the propensity for Prince Diamond to listen to everything he said, but Prince Diamond, accusing him of wanting the power for himself, telekinetically shattered a glass near Sapphires face, silencing him. When Prince Diamond kidnapped Sailor Moon and brought her to his Castle on Nemesis, she stumbled into Sapphires labratory, where he admitted that their plans were insensible and that she was guiltless, but nonetheless proceeded to strangle her. When Usagi transformed into Sailor Moon, he was knocked unconcious. Wiseman then hypnotized and lent Sapphire the power of 'death hands' before sending him to kill his brother. When attacked, Prince Diamond destroyed his brother, and didn't yet suspect that the so-called Wise Man was only using his clan untill they were no longer needed.


Sapphire was portrayed more sympathetically in the anime version of Sailor Moon, just as the rest of his clan was. A past relationship is alluded to between Sapphire and the oldest Akayashi sister, Petz, even though they were never in the same scene together in the manga. In a touching flashback, Sapphire recalls growing up on bleak Nemisis with his brother, who promised him that one day they would go to earth and he would show him real flowers. Sapphire overheard the Wiseman talking out loud about how he was only using Prince Diamond and the others for his own goals, and, barely escaping with his life, Sapphire stole the power of the black crystal and took it to the Earth of the past. He was breifly reunited with Petz, and aided by the sailor Senshi, but Wiseman killed him before he could warn his brother about Wiseman's treachery. Prince Diamond was greatly saddened by his brother's death; he took Sapphires ailing body into his arms, and dissapeared.

Reflecting the nature of her power, her senshi uniform is coloured marine blue, white and cyan.
According to Usagi in the manga, Ami supposedly has an IQ of 300, but despite the common association with her being a nerd, she nonetheless gains appreciation for artistic things, especially music (and was even a fan of a J-pop band before any of the other Senshi).
