Anime Bio
Sera Myu Bio

Hotaru Tomoe is the civilian identity of Sailor Saturn and the present-day reincarnation of Princess Saturn. When she was first introduced, she was possessed by Mistress 9. She is later adopted by Michiru Kaiou, Haruka Tenou, and Setsuna Meiou. This is the original depiction of the character created by Naoko Takeuchi.

Profile

Appearance

Hotaru is a petite girl with short dark purple hair, violet eyes, and pale skin.

On normal days, she wears a black turtlenecks sweat, grey skirt, and black stockings. On other days, she'll wear a black mini dress, and dark blue pantyhose. Her school uniform consists of a red top, green skirt, and blue pantyhose.

Biography

Infinity Arc

Prior to the manga, Hotaru was raised by her mother and father. An accident occurred in one of her father's labs, which killed her mother and fatally wounded Hotaru. To save her, her father replaced parts of her limbs with machine parts, turning her into a cyborg. He also connected with Pharaoh 90, who had her possessed with a Daimon who would become Pharaoh 90's partner in the future.

Dream Arc

Stars Arc

In the first chapter of the Stars arc, Hotaru is seen holding hands with Chibiusa. Usagi sees them and tells them that they are acting very friendly. Hotaru then askes her why she isn't holding Mamoru's hand. This causes Usagi to get very angry and push the girls away from each other.

Development

Eytmology

Hotaru: The kanji of "Hotaru" (ほたる) means "firefly." Fireflies are associated with the spirits of the dead in Japanese mythology, which fits her as she is the Sailor Soldier of Ruin/Death and Rebirth.

Tomoe: The kanji of "Tomoe" (土萠) translates as earth (to,土) and sprouting (moe, 萠), so her name means "firefly sprouting from Earth". Also, the first kanji in Tomoe is also the first character for the Japanese name for Saturn.

Trivia

  • She is the youngest Sailor Senshi, with the exception of Chibiusa.
    • This could be debated on, however, considering the fact that Chibiusa is actually more than 900 years old in the manga.
  • She is the only Sailor Senshi who is reborn after using her powers. The other Senshi stay alive after using their powers apart from Sailor Moon as Princess Serenity.
