I think that, rather than being all reborn in Tokyo, the Four Kings were each born in a region that is somewhere within the jurisdiction they would hold over in the Dark Kingdom once they were taken back into it (as recalled in the manga), and that this jurisdiction is also the one that they held over in their past lives as Endymion’s generals. For instance, Kunzite was head of the Dark Kingdom’s Middle Eastern Division, so I think that he was reborn somewhere in the Middle East, probably Saudi Arabia, and that he ruled that region under Endymion in his past life. I think that also accounts for his dark skin and Takeuchi’s notes saying he has the majesty of an Arabian king—not that having dark skin means he automatically has to be Middle Eastern or any other race than anime-Japanese, or that he has to be Arabian in order to have qualities of an Arabian king, just that it makes a nice fit in my head. I think that Jadeite (Far Eastern Division) was Chinese (hey, it’s anime, if Usagi can have blue eyes and blonde hair and be East Asian, so can he!), Zoisite (European Division) was French, and that Nephrite (North American Division) was born in the USA and was of mixed Native/white heritage. Fate drew them together just like the senshi though, even though they were so scattered, and they would have had a similar quest to find their prince…but Beryl and Metallia got there first.
The reason they would have been scattered is because Serenity intended it—she figured that if they were far away from each other and far away from her daughter was to be reborn (aka where the Silver Crystal, which would attract the Dark Kingdom, would be) then history would have a lesser chance of repeating itself…which it sadly did anyway. Of course, she didn’t deliberately think ‘oh hey, the senshi should all go to Japan, and Jadeite should go to China, etc.’, she just had a general force of will for the Princess and her senshi to be in the same place so they could protect her, and for Endymion to be there too so they could have a second chance at love, and for the Shittenou to be far away from that…so it turning out that Japan is the place that the Senshi all got reborn is coincidence, but the pre-existing connection that the souls of the Shittenou have to the lands they ruled caused them to be specifically reborn there in addition to Serenity’s will that they be separated from each other and the senshi for their own safety.
I’ve also always felt that there should have been/could be Kings to compliment the Outer Senshi as well, though I know that this messes up the “Four Kings” legend from Asian mythology that the ones in Sailor Moon are clearly based on…but still, in my head, there is/should also be a king of/from South America, Africa, India, and the Oceania regions (Australia, New Zealand, the island of New Guinea, and neighboring islands in the Pacific Ocean). Since all the areas that make up Oceania are islands, he would be counterpart to Neptune. The African one would be counterpart to Pluto because his region is where mankind first began on Earth and Pluto is the oldest senshi. The South American King would be counterpart to Uranus because the native peoples there originally practiced sun worship, and the sun is in the heavens, which is Uranus’s domain. And I think India matches up really with Saturn because of the Hindu deities of destruction/rebirth like Shiva and Kali. I realize this probably sounds a lot like fanfiction by now, but once the thought of ‘there should be more Kings for the Outers!’ entered my head, I couldn’t help pondering out what would make the most sense to me. (whatever I make up for their names/personalities/etc is the fanfic part where it stops being just headcanon, I think, but YMMV)
Also, there is no King from/of Russia (though I think that would be really cool, and I wish it DID fit in my headcanon but it doesn’t) because it is split between Jadeite and Zoisite’s respective regions.

Saito from Sailor V is totally the unawakened Kunzite.
Tagged with: ♥ potentially anti-canon ♥ since I think his purpose was more just to remind Minako of her past and not actually BE Kunzite ♥ but that's not canon so in it goes ♥ Sailor Moon ♥ headcanon ♥ submission ♥ text ♥ anonymous ♥ Codename: Sailor V ♥ Codename wa Sailor V ♥ Sailor V ♥ Kunzite ♥ Malachite ♥ Saito ♥ Dark Kingdom ♥ Negaverse

Kunzite never came up with a single plan of his own in the manga. Beryl came up with all of his plans. Why? Because Beryl had him magically stoned off his ass 24/7/365. Since it was a magically altered state of mind, it didn’t affect his reflexes or fighting abilities, but it did dull his cognitive reasoning in order to reduce the likelihood of him questioning orders. It also served the purpose of dulling his emotional reactions, distracting and difficult to control as emotions are.
I have two headcanons regarding Kunzite, though they contradict each other.
In one version, he’s an artificially-created person, kind of like replicants in Bladerunner but with longer lifespans. He was illegally created (by Beryl?) using Millennial technology especially to be Mamoru’s ideal companion and guardian. This caused him to debate whether or not he really could be considered a person when he found out.
My other one is simpler, he’s half Millennial. But his one also causes him to struggle with his identity - is he human? - albeit on a less profound level than the first.
Right after Kunzite died in the anime, he was reunited with Zoisite and Kunzite then expressed his feelings for Zoisite and they lived happily ever after in bad guy heaven~!

Nephrite’s disguise of “Masato Sanjouin/Maxfield Stanton” is a memory of his human life before Beryl got to him. Masato Sanjouin was a close friend and co-worker of Nephrite’s who was tragically killed once Nephrite was taken by the Dark Kingdom. Though he doesn’t remember his dearly departed friend, he knows the name and that it has meaning in his life.
Jadeite has a whore-madonna complex that he’s going to have to overcome if he’s going to have a relationship with Rei.
