Normal Identity: Kimberly Chiba
Birthday: August 6
Kimberly Chiba is Usagi's second child, four years younger than her half-sister Sarah (Chibi-usa). She is usually quiet and well-behaved, in contrast to her mischievious older sibling, although like Chibi-usa and her mother, she tends to snoop. Given her power, it is an irresistable temptation.
Like her father, Kimi is a good student, good enough to incite some jealousy. She likes sports, but she isn't good at any of them except track. Small for her age, she is sometimes bullied. She's willing to accept this, although she won't tolerate her friends being bullied, so she gets into a surprising number of fights. She's not an extraordinary fighter, though she has had a lifetime of training in the martial arts. However, this fact is usually moot, because whenever Kimi gets into a fight or is threatened, her half-sister Ishtar is liable to turn up, often with Alcyone, and the bullies are soon flat on their posteriors. If big sister Sarah is around, the bullies are advised to run for their lives!
Kimi has a reasonable number of friends, but she is a little shy and likes others to make the first move. She is closest to Ishtar Chiba, Minako's eldest, who is only two months older. The two girls look and sound so much alike they are often mistaken for each other. Alcyone Umino, one of Naru's daughters, is also her age and is the one most likely to lead Kimi into an unauthorized adventure if big sister doesn't have some scheme. Zara Urawa, Makoto's stepdaughter, is another close friend, but she is a grade ahead of Kimi.
Kimi's outstanding power as a senshi is her magic third eye. She can see to extraordinary distances, magnify things, even see through things or inside them (which had particular consequences for Hotaru and Shingo on one occasion). She can lend this power, and use her eye to focus and channel the powers of the other senshi. She can even use her eye without transforming, although not at full potential.
Kimi can use her eye when in senshi form to send out a beam of light, but this is not an attack. She is the fastest flier of all the senshi, but at 10 nearing 11, she had no attack power and almost no defense before the White House incident. She acquired her first (and so far only) attack after the death of her father: a blue rose.
Kimi's current senshi form resembles that of her older sister. Her fuku is black with light blue trimlines on the collar a light-blue skirt. She wears light blue slippers with criss-cross straps over her calves, over black tights. She wears silver skulls with light-blue jewels in the eye-sockets over her odango, as earrings, and on her choker, with two crescent moons below on earrings and choker. She does not wear a tiara because of her magic eye. Her sigil is also the nested moons; they are replaced by eyelids when her third eye opens.
Kimberly is named for a friend of Usagi and Chibi-usa. Few people call her by her given name; she usually signs herself "Kimi." Her nickname is pronounced "Kimmy" among English-speakers, but her mother and father and their Japanese friends call her "Keemee," usually with a "-chan" attached.
