Nephlite is one of the Four Generals in Sailor Moon.


Nephlite was the second General to be called forth. He has a hot-headed temper & was desperate to please Queen Beryl, he was Jedite's main rival for her attention. Unfortunately, while he tries very hard, he doesn't seem to be the sharpest of the Four Generals. Perhaps because of his inability to control himself, Nephlite became the Negaverse's scape goat, acting as Beryl's whipping boy & favorite target of Malachite's ridicule. Nephlite's orders were to find the Silver Crystal while Jedite collected human energy. Without any reliable information, however, Nephlite continually chased after two fake crystals & the decoy Princess. After repeated failures & attacking Dark Mercury after she mocked him, Queen Beryl declared Nephlite useless & banished him from her sight. She said off-handedly that he should do something to prove his continued existence would be worthwhile. Despite Beryl's continual dismissal of him, Nephlite's loyalty never wavered. Dark Mercury discovered Nephlite depressed & lonely in a corner of the Negaverse, she told him it bothered her to see anyone in his emotional state. She also fixed his cape that Malachite torn, a gesture he would later repay when he shielded her from Malachite's sword after she became good again.

Beryl would later welcome Nephlite back into her group when the memories of the Four Generals began to reemerge. In an effort to lure Darien to the Negaverse, Beryl used the Four Generals against him. She took control of Nephlite's body & forced Nephlite to commit suicide by impaling himself with his sword. Somehow, Nephlite quickly reappeared in America as a normal human with all his memories of the Negaverse & Beryl intact. He ended up working with Andrew at the Crown Karaoke center, though he is clumsy, constantly looses his temper & is resentful to existence at large. He spent a good deal of his time taking out his frustration on both Andrew & the various equipment at Crown. Nephlite no longer found himself so desperate to return to the Negaverse & Beryl. Nephlite also forges a tenuous friendship with Amy Waters, feeling the need to return the favor. Even though Amy didn't remember their moments together, she made efforts to be kind to him, empathizing with his own loneliness. When Princess Serena destroyed the Earth at the series finale, Nephlite was seen disappearing along with the others. When Serena & Darien revived the Earth again, Nephlite was not seen alive on the Earth. Instead, he & the other Generals appeared before Darien, professing his loyalty to him & promising that they will appear when they are needed. He does so in the special episode, when the Four Generals assisted in the battle against the Pierrot monsters, later attending his master & Serena's wedding. In the pilot episode, he was a police officer called Adam.
