Power Loss (All Powers)- Sailor Senshi must be able to gesture and speak freely to use their powers. If they are Bound or Snared, they cannot use their attacks easily.
Normal Identity (Tomoe Hotaru, Without Power Stick)
Responsibility (Sailor Senshi)- The Senshi are forced to fight evil, and protect Sailor Moon.
Secret (Identity)- The Senshi must not reveal their identities to the world at large, nor their villains.
Enemy (Current Big Bad)
Responsibility (Sickly)- For years, Hotaru was sickly because she was sharing her body with Mistress 9. She was ST -2, STA -2, AGI -1, and any physicaly exertion would leave her Incapacitated for hours.
Relationship (Chibi-Usa)- The only person not creeped out by Hotaru's magical powers was Chibi-Usa, and this made her eternally grateful for her new friend. Chibi-Usa's friendship is a huge part of what brought Hotaru free out of Mistress 9's body.
Relationship (The Other Sailors)- Hotaru gets along with Chibi-Usa's friends as well, especially Usagi. She eventually grows close with the Outer Sailors (even though they tried to KILL HER).
Relationship (Souichi Tomoe)- Hotaru is very dependant upon her father, who acts kindly to her in person.
Responsibility (The Soldier of Destruction/The Dark Messiah)- Hotaru is believed to be the destroyer of the world, and the bringer of the end times.
Enemy (Kaolinite)- The vicious Kaolinite has scolded and admonished Hotaru since she was a little girl, never letting her forget that there was a demon inside of her somewhere.
Abilities: 16 / Skills: 26--13 / Advantages: 10 / Powers: 86 / Defenses: 11 (136)
Sailor Saturn- The One We're Not Supposed To See A Lot Of:
-They did a really, really good job with Sailor Saturn on this show. Throwing in the last of the Solar System's planets into a Sailor, and making her BY FAR the most powerful, could have been fraught with peril. The fans could have rejected her, and they'd have made a mess fitting her into the stories. So they really worked wonders with her manga & anime selves.
-Hotaru Tomoe debuts as an impossibly-endearing, fragile little girl, desperately lonely and oh, SO eager for friendship. Appearing very gaunt, with a large head (implying youth) and a dark ballerina outfit, she looked vaguely gothic, but also needy and helpless enough that I can buy that the term "Moe" (a weird catch-all for "endearing, emotional little girls that weird older guys are way into in a way that seems kind of creepy but apparently isn't supposed to be so, but I'm really not sure", in anime terms) was invented beacuse of her last name ("Toh-moh-ay"). Hotaru is cheerful and friendly with Chibi-Usa, but appears very frightened and sickly, to the point where she can't be on her own for very long, because any kind of exertion can cause "attacks" that leave her requiring hospitalization.
-It turns out that her father is a kindly old Professor... except he's ALSO the leader of the Death Busters, and a total madman! He plays innocent with her, and in public, while her "caretaker" Kaolinite is a vicious, nasty bitch who constantly browbeats Hotaru for being selfish, cruel and helpless. Hotaru actively hates Kaolinite's intrusion into her life, frequently yelling at her and demanding to be left alone, only for "Kaori" to sneer at her and make fun of her for making "SUCH a face!" when Hotaru gives her the evil eye.
-But then it turns out there's some real darkness here. Hotaru is having an attack, and is in the way of an evil Daimon, and totally doomed! The Sailors are desperate to save her... and then her f*cking eyes light up like Satan himself is empowering her, some creepy "little girl chorus" starts up, and the Daimon is BLASTED with some kind of mysterious energy! And then it happens again in ANOTHER episode! And we get flashbacks to Little Hotaru crying about her dead goldfish, only to be scolded by Kaori for killing it herself. And being in class, asking for her friend, and getting yelled at by the other kids, since they all saw her attack and injure him the day before! She bawls to her father "I feel like there's another person INSIDE of me!", and that she doesn't remember all of these things, and the music gets SO ominous and creepy... there's something really, really wrong going on.
-Hotaru turns out to be the "Dark Messiah" (called "Messiah of Silence" in the new dub)- the bringer of The Silence that Sailors Uranus & Neptune have been fearing this entire time. She "speaks" to her father via some speakers by a giant chair covered with stuffed animals, using an "Adult and child speaking at the same time" voice just to ramp up the eeriness EVEN MORE. The Outer Sailors are convinced they have to kill her, while the Inners refuse to be so cruel- Hotaru & Chibi-Usa are friends, after all. Even Hotaru revealing the symbol of Saturn on her forehead- indicating that she is the "Senshi of Destruction" who could destroy planets in the Silver Millennium time period- don't dissuade them.
-Finally, the Outers attempt to kill her, but Sailor Moon saves Hotaru's life. And the stealing of Chibi-Usa's Heart Crystal empowers Hotaru, transforming her into Mistress 9, who slaughters Kaolinite immediately, then brings forth Pharaoh 90 and nearly destroys the world. However, some good old-fashioned "I know you're inside there!" works wonders, and Hotaru is able to break free. Sailor Saturn is finally revealed, using her "Death Reborn Revolution" technique to destroy Pharaoh 90 and save the world alongside Sailor Moon. Saturn thanks Sailor Moon for protecting her life, then fades away, leaving only an infant Hotaru, reborn.
Super S & Sailor Stars:
-Baby Hotaru is raised by Uranus, Pluto & Neptune (manga) and an amnesiac Professor Tomoe (anime), until Sailor Moon SuperS
needs to get all the Sailors together as a plot convenience- in the manga, she ages herself back into Sailor Saturn and re-powers the other Sailors (who'd been de-powered at the end of S
)- together, they join the fight against the Dead Moon Circus. In the anime, she has to wait until Sailor Stars
, when Uranus & Neptune abruptly go "We're gonna need this; kthanxbai" to the Professor and age up Hotaru themselves, then go fight Queen Nehellenia. However, she is a mere "assister character" from this point on, rarely mattering overly much to the plot. In the manga, she is easily beaten by Sailor Galaxia and killed, while in the anime, her and Pluto are killed by Sailors Uranus & Neptune as part of a ruse to trick Galaxia... who kills them anyways.
Sailor Saturn Overall:
-I think her few appearances are part of the appeal for the character- she also LOOKS different than the other girls, having extra bits to her costume that the others lack, like a spikier fuku (skirt), shoulder-things sticking out, and more. The giant Silence Glaive is a big bonus, too.
The Powers of Saturn:
-Sailor Saturn breaks the standard for Senshi, largely because of her mess of weird powers, and her lack of physicality. She's so weak physically that she's useless with anything but her powers, but MAN, what powers. She tends not to use Death Reborn Revolution EVER except for that one time against Master Pharaoh 90 (and seriously, how is "Death Reborn Revolution" NOT the most bad-ass sounding attack name in history?), but it's her key effect- it's not seen in the anime. Instead, you just witness a battle with a lot of energy blasts slicing along Pharaoh 90's form. In the manga, he explicitly cries out in pain that she's draining his life force away- he shrinks and shrinks, eventually removing himself from Earth, and Sailors Saturn & Moon finish him off.
-The rest of her techniques are common Blasts (Death Ribbon Revolution is an "Energy Wave" attack from the Fighting Game), and a really good Force Field that makes her a top flight team player (on two separate occasions, it saves other characters from Sailor Galaxia's attacks). Still, I wouldn't recommend tossing a PL 14 character ANYWHERE near this crew, even if that power had a huge amount of Flaws attached to it.
-Obviously, her "Destroy the World" power is one of those things that's unlikely to come up in the game, as it never really got used as anything other than a plot device, so it's barely worth putting down. Only used once in the manga, it finished off the Moon Kingdom after the deaths of all the major characters, allowing them to be reborn in the later Millennium. 'Course, once the Planet goes, the wielder of the attack would probably die, thus making it pretty much fatal to poor Saturn as well
. Note: Don't try to use this in a game. It's quite impolite to the other players.
-If you wanna blow up the planet like an Area Attack, you can do it like so: "End the World" Damage 30 (Feats: Penetrating 20) (Extras: Area- 8,000 miles +22) (Flaws: Fatal -3) (620 points). The Earth is 7,900-ish miles in diameter, but since you'd be standing on one edge of it, you'd "only" get 4,000 miles deep- which is probably enough to crack it anyways. This is obviously WAY more expensive than just putting together enough raw power to do it- it's actually not that difficult using M&M stats (a high enough-damage attack will take out even a planetoid made out of rock & mantle), though most GMs probably wouldn't allow it.
