Transcending royaltyA duty to their friends, planets, and the universe, the royal family has transcending time itself.
King EndymionHandsome and proud, Mamori has turned into a majestic king. As with Usagi, he has also grown in maturity. In the past, Endymion used to question his lack of power to protect Serenity. His generals told him that he must be strong and irreplaceable to the neo queen and he has worked hard to fulfill his right as king. As the born prince of Earth, Endymion's only known powers lie close to the source. When he touches the earth he is able to locate or find anyone or in his present day form he is able to some magical attacks. He also holds close ties to Chibiusa and Usagi, by lending his inner power to them when in a crisis.
"When you're uncertain or worried, I'll be there for you. I may have no power, but you called me here to you. If you need me...I'll give you all the strength of my soul. I live to be there for you. So you must fight with confidence."Name origin From Greek mythology, Endymion was a handsome shepherd whom Selene, the Titan goddess of the moon, fell in love with. Selene asked Zeus to grant Endymion eternal youth so that he would never leave her. She loved Endymion's sleeping form so much, she asked Zeus to leave Endymion in eternal sleep. Prototype analysisKing Endymion
King Endymion's outfit is quite similar to his Tuxedo Kamen tuxedo, mask, and cape. The largest difference in his attire is the purple color of his tuxedo, the many medals and awards on his lapel, as well as his staff that holds the Golden crystal. I have to confess Mamori/Tuxedo Kamen/Endymion has never really been a favorite. While is he drawn beautifully by Naoko (she indicates she prefers more slim body styled men) I found Mamori to be a rather weak character; he is always getting himself brainwashed, kidnapped, and seduced by all the evil females ~ I'm not complaining about eye candy though...

Neo Queen SerenityWe remember her best as the crime-fighting girl in a fuku. It seems as though Usagi has shed her title to become a kind, compassionate, and just ruler in the future. After battles are fought and won she is still the supreme queen.
"I can't get depressed. It'll come soon...The future. And I have a lot of things to do before then."Name origin Neo Queen Serenity's name is most likely derived from Mare Serenitatis ("Sea of Serenity"), which is one of the lunar mare (large meteoroid impacts have been made) locations on Earth's Moon as well as the location Takeuchi Naoko places the past Moon Kingdom. Serenity also personifies the adjective Serene: shining bright and steady or clear, free of unpleasantness, utter calmness. Queen is Serenity's status. Neo (Greek for "new") indicates that she is the new queen of the universe to differentiate from her mother who was known as Queen Serenity. Prototype analysisTsukino Usagi
While the Material Collection does not provide a sketch of Neo Queen Serenity the similarities between the princess and queen dresses are noticeable including the same jewelry and bodice. A few the distinct differences include more white transparent material gathered in the back to resemble wings, Neo Queen Serenity's crown, and evolving staff. Neo Queen Serenity's staff seems to change whenever the present day Sailormoon's staff changes. One of my favorite dresses is Princess Serenity's with the transparent flowing material along with the matching accessories ^^ Click the images on the left for translated Material Collection notes.
Small LadyNeo Princess Serenity, better known as Small Lady, is the daughter of Neo Queen Serenity and King Endymion. Small Lady's nickname was given to her by Sailorpluto, whom Small Lady in turn calls Puu. Her name Chibiusa is derived from her mother's name Usagi, the Chibi is added to emphasize her size (chibi = small) and the name Usagi is cut down to Usa. The princess is a pink replica of the past day Usagi.
"I am Small Lady, Serenity,...the daughter of Neo-Queen Serenity and King Endymion, the Crown Princess of the Silver Millennium."Name origin Please see Neo Queen Serenity's name section regarding Serenity. Small (adjective) little in size, or perhaps has a double meaning of Chibiusa's dormant powers to be lacking in strength and Lady (noun) a woman of high status or superiority. Prototype analysisSmall Lady
Small Lady's hair accessories resemble those of a Moon Princess, but her gown is original to her. A frilly pink concoction that matches her pink hair ~ Despite being the crown princess of the Moon, when we first meet Chibiusa she does not wear a traditional gown, but an outfit that resembles kid's play clothes. It is not until she returns to the 30th Century after becoming a senshi is she later seen in her princess gown. Perhaps this is to signify her coming-of-age, although the theory doesn't entirely hold as the previous Princess Serenity wasn't seen in any outfit besides her gown even though she was not a senshi.
