"Crystal Tokyo" in search of her mother in the past and
the silver crystal. Unfortunately, shortly after Rini's arrival, Darien
has nightmares of Serena being hurt if he doesn't stay away from her.
As a result, Darien breaks up with Serena, crushing her heart. Also,
new enemies are then introduced including Rubius and the four sisters
- Catsy, Bertie, Prizma, and Avery from the "Dark-Moon".
These people are sent by someone called the "Wiseman" from
the future to try to stop Rini and disrupt the past of Tokyo so that
the forces of the Dark-Moon will have an easier time taking over Crystal
Tokyo of the future. Eventually the four sisters turn good but the
Sailor Scouts still have Rubius to contend with.
The Sailor Scouts defeat Rubeus but encounter other people from the
future. The appearance of new enemies including Prince Diamond, Sapphire,
and Emerald. These characters are members of the "Dark Moon"
family who threaten the earth in the future. They were originally
banished to a planet called Nemesis and came back for revenge. Everyone
finds out that Rini is Serena and Darien's daughter from the future.
Serena finds out that she will be Neo-Queen Serenity in the future.
Rini came to the past to find the silver crystal and bring it back
to the future because she lost it while she was playing with it one
day. Rini is captured by the forces of the Dark-Moon. They accelerate
her growth and she becomes a character named "Wicked Lady"
who has no memories of her former childhood and fights for the Dark-Moon.
