The Four Generals were originally the guardians of the Prince of the Earth. They are tasked to defend their leader & would defend him on their own accord, acting individually, or as a group. After the tragedy that destroyed the Moon Kingdom & almost devastated the Earth, they were revived by Queen Beryl using the Negaforce's powers & supposedly kept them in control through magical gems which represented their respective names.
In the special episode, Queen Mabelle made her own version of the Generals who kidnapped both Darien Shields & Serena Moon. They were then confronted & destroyed by the originals who were still recuperating at the time of the abduction. The original Generals helped in defeating Queen Mabelle by returning Darien to his Prince Darien form. They were later seen in the shadows as they cheer on their Prince's marriage with the Moon Princess.
