Menber of the Shitennou
Knight of intelligence and comfort
Nephrite keeps his appearance from the original manga, but the most notable difference is the trim of his outfit is no longer yellow but red, and his eye color changes from blue to brown.
When he first appears, Nephrite is much like the other Shitennou. He is determined, malicious, and not afraid to use others if it means he accomplishes his goals.
Nephrite first appears in Act 3 during Jadeite's encounter with Queen Beryl. He remarks that Jadeite's youma are merely clay dolls and attempts to appeal to Queen Beryl to take his place, only to be interrupted by Zoisite. He appears again after Jadeite accumulates his captives, intended to be offerings to Queen Metaria, and comments that he is too lenient.
In Act 4, he appears again alongside Zoisite after Kunzite berates Jadeite for his failures. He uses his Soul Shadow to appear at Princess Dia's party; Disguised as a woman, he possesses the princess and uses her to steal the soon-to-be unveiled treasure, thinking that it could be the Silver Crystal that the Dark Kingdom is striving to obtain. After his shadow is cast out of Princess Dia's body by Sailor Moon, he retreats to a nearby building, but is chastised by Kunzite, who appears alongside him with the other Shitennou.
In Act 6, he appears again briefly, and pleads to Queen Beryl to give him another chance, while Zoisite ridicules him for underestimating the Sailor Senshi.
In Act 10, Nephrite, along with the other generals, regain their lost memories. However, they are brainwashed and put back under the control of Queen Beryl.
In Act 12, Nephrite and the rest of the Shitennou are freed from the brainwashing, but are immediately killed.
Nephrite, like his fellow Shitennou, possesses the ability to teleport. He displays an ability to disguise himself. He also seem to have the ability to use his shadow to possess people.
Nephrite and Sailor Jupiter were in a relationship back in the days of the Silver Millenium.
