I think Princess Serenity didn’t have a father, mainly because of the fact that the series is 85% girls.
There seemed to be no mention of a King in the series or many men on the Moon Kingdom.

Though not reincarnated by the work of Queen Serenity and the Silver Crystal, the people close to the Sailor Soldiers in the 20th century are reincarnations of citizens of the Silver Millenium. Usagi/Serena’s mother is actually the reincarnation of Princess Serenity’s nurse during her childhood. Rei’s grandfather is actually the reincarnation of the priest of the main shrine on Mars. Others such as Greg, Naru/Molly, Umino, and anyone else with close ties to the lives of the Sailor Soldiers are also reincarnations from the Silver Millenium.

A Brief History of the Solar System

The age of the universe is about 13.7 billion years old, give or take a few million. The age of the Earth is nearly 1/3 of that at 4.5 billion years old; the planet formed several millions of years after the Sun formed and the Solar System got running. Finally, the Moon formed millions of years after that by what could have been a great impact with the infant Earth. What does this have to do with SailorMoon?

((Mod’s note: Cut for length, but do read! [Cliffhanger Ending]))

The Silver Millennium existed before our Solar System formed. There was a different star where the Sun is now, many billions of years before what we call the Earth existed. That solar system’s civilizations were advanced beyond anything we’ve created and that is where the senshi began.


But when Meteria and Beryl attacked, they destroyed so much of the Solar System that it was beyond salvaging. All peoples were wiped out and Queen Serenity sent her court to the future in agonizing grief. Then Saturn brought down her scythe and ended the world.


And end it she did, by obliterating the entire system until nothing but dust was left. What science would now call a supernova was at that moment a senshi’s greatest power. A molecular cloud was all that was left of the once-mighty kingdom.


The magic of that monarchy, however, assured its survival in some form. The ruins of the Moon Palace are triggered to appear on the arrival of anyone with sufficient magic to understand their history and purpose. This is why we don’t see them with the naked eye each day. Queen Serenity’s spirit remains within the Moon, reformed through her own desires into a close estimate of what once her home.

Like the Moon, the original planets still held their Sailor Crystals within the microscopic dust that remained after the end. As time passed, the particles of the planets reformed—not at all as they once were, but still bonded to the Sailor Crystal of each protector senshi. It was the only way that the senshi could continue to protect their homes even in death and rebirth.


This is part of the reason why the senshi’s memories are skewed. Besides being reborn, what they’re remembering doesn’t exist any longer as they knew it. As well, the power of their Sailor Crystals were stretched over miles of debris for so long that the “genetic” memories of their past selves were scrambled.


As for why the senshi are named for gods and goddesses of other cultures that didn’t exist until well after their own lives, both magic and the collective unconsciousness inherited from the trillions of people who lived before cast the names of their most treasured heroines through time to future cultures. The senshi are not named for deities; the deities of our history are named for them and loosely modeled after who the senshi were when they were first created. This is why Queen Serenity calls herself Selene—she truly is the goddess herself, or at least as the people of the Silver Millennium saw her. Now she remains a ghost in the microscopic rubble of her kingdom, made into a new world.


The Silver Millennium is gone. The very planets the senshi lived on no longer exist as once they did. All the girls can do is rebuild and remember that the particles of the current Solar System were their former homes, billions of years ago.

Anonymous said: I've seen a lot posted about Sailor Moon's successor, i.e. Sailor Cosmos, but what about her predecessors? Do you think Queen Serenity had a Sailor Moon form and her mother before her?

Hmmm…! I’ve never actually thought about it before. But, I don’t think she did. I think the whole concept of a “Sailor Moon” is not something that really existed before modern-day Usagi Tsukino - at least not a Sailor Moon that transformed and fought on a regular basis. I think that Queen Serenity, and her predecessors, would have just fought with the Silver Crystal without transforming, but only when strictly necessary - that before that, their job would have been to be protected by the other Soldiers, and stay as far away from battle as possible. But when Luna found Usagi, she didn’t recognise her as the princess, and didn’t really have very clear memories about what happened during the Silver Millennium, so she just decided she must be a regular Sailor Soldier and got her to fight and transform as Sailor Moon pretty much every week. Then I imagine that later, Usagi/Neo Queen Serenity decided “Well, I fought alongside my guardian Soldiers basically every day and it never did me any harm… so there’s no reason Small Lady can’t fight as Sailor Moon too!”. Basically, before modern-day Usagi (Silver Millennium and earlier) the Princess never transformed unless it was strictly necessary, but then after Usagi’s time she started a legacy where the Moon royalty transformed and fought just like any other Soldier.

Of course, this is all based on the fact that during the fight against Chaos during the Silver Millennium, Queen Serenity never transformed to use the Silver Crystal. But it’s entirely possible that she merely lost the power to transform when Princess Serenity was born and inherited the Silver Crystal, much like NQS lost the power to transform when Chibi-Usa was born. So it’s possible that Queen Serenity, before having her child, was totally kicking ass as Sailor Moon too. But I think I prefer the other version.

Miracle Children

In the vein of ‘I need an explanation for everything’ here’s my theory on why the majority of the Sailor Senshi are only children. Queen Serenity, to make sure her child and her friends were as dearly loved as they should be, sent the sailors to be reborn to couples who would have otherwise been childless. 

Usagi is an older sibling mostly due to the fact that the powers that be knew she had to be at that hospital to meet Mamoru on the day Fiore left, and partially due to the lingering affects of the silver crystal on her body.

I actually haven’t thought that part out very much, I’ll admit.

Since I need at least one explanation for everything in the SM universe here’s my headcanon:

Queen Serenity, Princess Serenity and Sailor Moon are shown with multiple hair colors because whoever is in posession of the Silver Crystal is affected by the phases of the moon, sometimes resulting in the change of haircolor. Princess Serenity’s hair was generally silver when the moon was waning, blonde when the moon was waxing and pink when there were certain occurrences such as an eclipse or a harvest moon. The reason why we never see Sailor Moon/Usagi in the anime with different colored hair is because as Sailor Moon, Usagi isn’t exposed to the full power of the Silver Crystal most of time or an eclipse (even if she was, these changes aren’t always definite). When Usagi becomes Neo-Queen Serenity, the Silver Crystal is always working at it’s near full potential so these ”side effects” may begin to happen to her (same goes for when she was Serenity). This also means that Chibi-Usa may have blond or silver hair once in a while when the Silver Crystal is given to her. 

I also have a theory about the orgin of the Silver Crystal and how it relates to the Moon Kindom & such, but that’s another post for another time.

Sailor Pluto and Queen Serenity were lovers. Some sort of lover’s spat lead to Pluto being banished to the Time Gate for eternity. Her relationship with Chibiusa is not precious because she thinks of her as her adoptive child, but rather, her adoptive grandchild. She loves her with all the intensity that she believes Queen Serenity would if she were alive.

(Anime-only headcanon where Pluto’s age during the Silver Millennium is ambiguous.)
