Plot Summary: In her first appearance, Sailor Venus introduced herself as the princess. What she did not foresee was her ability to play the role too well and how this decoy plan could end up backfiring in a fatal manner. Even though she intended to be the person the enemies focused on, she did not realize that she would also cause the other senshi to put her safety above everyone else's, including that of the real princess, Usagi. When facing a battle against Kunzite, who was trying to kill the princess, both Sailor Moon and Sailor Venus got attacked. Sailor Jupiter, along with Mars and Mercury, went to save Venus' life, leaving Sailor Moon to fend for herself. She did not succeed. The attack was fatal, and she died.
Now Venus must deal with the consequences of her lie; figuring out how to save the world without the true princess and the Silver Crystal, as well as facing her fellow guardian senshi. Realizing that telling them the truth will only crush everyone's spirit and cause resentment, with immense guilt Venus is forced to carry on the charade, now really stepping into the shoes of someone else that she knows she can never, ever truly fulfill.
