Crystal Empire


History

Silver Millennium

The Silver Millennium was an era of peace and prosperity, where the planets of the Solar System were inhabited and governed by individual monarchies. The capitol of the Solar System, Earth’s moon Luna, was the brightest star in the Solar System.

Queen Serenity ruled the Solar System after uniting the planets under the Silver Alliance. She gave birth to one heir – Princess Serenity – and assigned the princesses of the Inner Solar System to become her guardians. The Outer Solar System princesses would soon become the guardians of the Solar System, protecting the system from invaders.

On the day that Queen Serenity would reveal Princess Serenity to the Silver Alliance, Queen Nehellenia appeared before the court uninvited, placing a curse on Princess Serenity that foretold that she would never live to see her throne. Queen Serenity then sealed Queen Nehellenia away using the power of the Silver Crystal for the next 1,000 years.

Ever since then, the Silver Millennium was mostly one of peace. God’s Law was enacted as the Earth refused to partake in the Silver Alliance, their distrust in them overseeing their movements clear. During the time of the Silver Millennium, the Earth was at 1,000 AD and moving onto the Middle Ages. Magic and the supernatural were not unheard of to the humans of this time, but that didn't make them any less distrustful of their extraterrestrial neighbors, who sought to guide the people of Earth on the correct course for light. They looked to the Earth's capitol city, Elysion and its royal family, for protection from extraterrestrial forces as they were the only ones with the true power capable of combating their foes.

Chaos saw this as an opportunity and would then use the next sixteen years to develop its scheme. Queen Metaria, the result of Queen Nehellenia’s curse, was beginning to show destructive signs within the radioactive sun.

Queen Serenity, observant as ever on the sun, saw the activity and requested that the knights of the Inner Solar System were to be deployed to Earth to protect their people. While the King of the Earth didn’t trust Queen Serenity’s words, it was Prince Endymion who implored the Earth King to heed Queen Serenity’s warnings.

The knights Venus, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter were sent to aid in the protection of the Earth Kingdom, to be trained as an Earth Warrior alongside the Heavenly Kings. Queen Serenity hadn’t expected that her own daughter, Princess Serenity, was already beginning to venture to Earth in secret by this time. She fell in love with Prince Endymion, oblivious of the existence of the Sorceress Beryl who was infatuated with him. It was their forbidden love that sparked a bitter hatred from Beryl, who desired to have Prince Endymion for herself.

Queen Metaria was soon freed from the radioactive sun after a solar flare and made her way to Earth. The first person that she met was the Sorceress Beryl, who she promised would get her desires and vengeance against Princess Serenity should she aid her. She then became known as Queen Beryl, the leader of the Dark Kingdom.

Queen Metaria managed to corrupt Earthlings and had them join the Dark Kingdom, including the Four Heavenly Kings. A war against the Earth and Moon was sparked, and after the death of Princess Serenity, Prince Endymion and the inner Sailor Guardians, the Moon Kingdom fell to ruin.

Queen Serenity used the last bit of her power to seal Queen Metaria away and defeat Queen Beryl. After their defeat, she had granted rebirth to those who’d fallen during the war. Sailor Saturn was triggered after the death of Queen Serenity, as it meant the Silver Millennium had ended.

Present Day

The Sailor Guardians were granted rebirth in the 20th Century, where through the threads of fate, they were all eventually lured at some point in time to Infinity City, Florida, an artificial island off the coast of Eastern Florida.

Their relationships would form canonically, and they’d experience the hardships they endured throughout the series and overcome them. The events of the Dark Kingdom, Black Moon, Infinity, Dream and Stars all happened in the game canonically.

It was after the defeat of Sailor Galaxia where each Sailor Guardian was forced to be reborn where Guardian Cosmos would place a “seal” on their memories. This seal would cause them to not remember anything about their time traveling adventures, let alone Sailor Mini Moon as a whole. The memories where Sailor Mini Moon were present would be “unclear” or “foggy”. While this seal doesn't affect the Amazoness Quartet, who the Crystal Empire remember, they don't recall that they are from the future, destined to protect Sailor Mini Moon.

The seal was done in efforts to protect the time stream, to allow the Crystal Empire to shape its own destiny. Each Sailor Guardian would have been reborn and reunited with one another upon their resurrection, and they were free to pursue a normal life up until the marriage of Neo Queen Serenity and King Endymion.

Ageing

Ageing among the Crystal Court is relatively similar to that of an Earthling, except presumably longer than the 1,000 year estimate due to the power of their Sailor Crystals and True Star Seeds.

Ageing is also dependent on their overall maturity. Once they stop maturing, their ageing will cease at the age that they stopped maturing.

Powers

Even after the ascension of King Endymion and Neo Queen Serenity, the Sol Guardians have remained in their Eternal stages, but they’re much more powerful than ever before. They transform using the phrase ”___Eternal Power, Make Up!” They have a greater understanding of their attacks and abilities as they’re more in control of their elemental influence, and they’re capable of wielding their attacks from previous stages.

The Heavenly Kings on the other hand possess powers that rival that of an Inner Sol Guardian, and rightfully so, due to their need to protect their King. While Neo Queen Serenity may have lost her ability to transform upon ascension to the throne up until January 2031, King Endymion did not lose his transformation ability as his Guardians hadn’t wavered in loyalty.

  • Sol Guardians can wield all of their attacks and abilities from every stage, plus one new attack.
  • Heavenly Kings, Helios and the Maenads can have 3 attacks, 2 abilities, and 1 new attack. They can no longer summon youma.

Golden Crystal and Silver Crystal

The Golden Crystal and Silver Crystal were destined to become unified. Even during the Silver Millennium, the two crystals called out to each other and rivaled one another in power. Now that King Endymion and Neo Queen Serenity have married, that is ever so true.

Upon their marriage, the King and Queen have a greater understanding of each other’s Sailor Crystals, capable of tapping into one another’s and sensing if they’re in danger. They can merge their powers together to become an unstoppable force.

Once Neo Queen Serenity would give birth to Princess Lady Serenity, even she would gain her own Silver Crystal, which would become a unified version of the Golden Crystal and Silver Crystal to later be called the Pink Moon Crystal.

Territories

The Crystal Empire, the result of the union between the Earth and the Moon, has several territories. As unfortunate it may seem, while the Sol System denizens may wish to venture back to their home planets, they are no longer habitable.

The “magic” that kept the planets habitable vanished at the fall of the Silver Millennium, as the planets adjusted to the harsher conditions of their current alignment.

The Moon Kingdom

After the defeat of Queen Beryl and Queen Metaria in 2010, the Moon Kingdom was restored to its former glory. However, a young Cynthia Lunette at the time had rejected Queen Serenity’s offer for her to become the new Moon Queen, believing that her place was on Earth. Ever since then, the Moon Kingdom remained not only habitable, but untouched and undetectable to humanity.

That was until Neo Queen Serenity and King Endymion ascended the throne of the Earth, unintentionally breaking the seal that was once placed upon the Moon Kingdom. Scientists were quickly able to detect the ancient city, and missions to the moon were once again popularized and on demand.

While it is easily accessible by the Crystal Empire and they’ve deemed it a “vacation spot”, the royal family primarily advocates for the Moon Kingdom to be an archaeological site in hopes of garnering knowledge of the past. Neo Queen Serenity hopes to one day restore it and make it more accessible.

Elysion

The Golden Kingdom, the former title of the Kingdom of Elysion, is currently under the reign of King Endymion when he took the throne of Earth. Just weeks after his coronation, a secondary landmass surfaced from the depths of the sea, revealing itself to be the lost kingdom of Elysion. Unlike the Crystal City, which floated above the Northern Atlantic ocean, Elysion was on par with the coastal land levels. Land strips had magically formed and connected the Crystal City to Elysion.

When scholars arrived at the lost kingdom, they were stunned to find that after thousands of years items within the palace were untouched with time due to the protection from the Golden Crystal. Archaeologists flocked to the city to discover more of Earth’s ancient secrets. Because of this, the Golden Kingdom is under restricted access, meaning certain clearance must be given for ordinary citizens to enter its borders.

After the kingdom resurfaced, the High Priest of Elysion, Helios, and the Maenads made themselves known to the world, swearing once again loyalty to King Endymion.

Divisions

Queensguard

The Queensguard, another nickname for the Solar System’s Sailor Guardians, coined by Sailor Jupiter during Winter 2030. The Queensguard was reformed at the request of Sailor Jupiter when it became apparent that the Sailor Guardians were focusing more on their civilian roles rather than their duties to the Crown. It was also noticeable that they weren’t actively seeking to put an end to threats such as the Dark Alliance, which at the time was two separate factions.

At the agreement of the Sol Guardians, each of them would have returned to their original duties. Sailor Uranus would become the head of the Queensguard due to her role as the active Crystal Palace Security Chief, and Sailor Jupiter would become second-in-command.

Sailor Venus would continue her duties as the personal bodyguard and body-double of Neo Queen Serenity.

Kingsguard

The Four Heavenly Kings had been resurrected by King Endymion using the power of the Golden Crystal, and each Heavenly King once again swore loyalty to Endymion. Similarly to the roles of Neo Queen Serenity’s Sailor Guardians, the Heavenly Kings are King Endymion’s own guardians blessed with the power of knighthood.

During Nephrite’s early travels around America he discovered evidence that the Dark Kingdom was reforming. Although he had no direct contact with Queen Beryl, he, along with the other Heavenly Kings would have known how the Dark Kingdom conducted themselves. It made the Kings wary, and only months after that, they began to see signs in Infinity City.

Each Heavenly King is vulnerable to the control of Queen Beryl and Queen Metaria due to their stones. While they may be able to fight off their control with the aid of King Endymion, they are aware that it is difficult to leave Queen Metaria’s service.

Chain-of-command

  • Kunzite, first-in-command and ambassador of the Middle East.
  • Zoisite, second-in-command and ambassador of Europe.
  • Nephrite, ambassador of North America.
  • Jadeite, ambassador of Asia.

Helios & Maenads

On August 25th, 2018, Elysion emerges from the depths of the sea, creating a new landmass in the Northern Atlantic ocean. While it isn’t a floating city like Crystal City, Helios and the Maenads have made their presence known and swore allegiance to the King and Queen. They are no longer required to abide by their original duties, but may desire to aid archaeologists throughout their adventures in Elysion.

Advisors

Neo Queen Serenity and Sailor Venus were gifted with advisors from the planet Mau. Their names are Luna and Artemis, and around the time that Princess Lady Serenity is born, they would also give birth to a young kitten named Diana, who would become the princess’s advisor.

However, while these three advise the Sol Guardians, they are not the only advisors. Sailor Mars, Sailor Neptune and Sailor Pluto have taken on advisory roles due to their unique abilities. Unfortunately, Sailor Mars has since resigned as advisor in January 2031.
