Ail is one of the two main antagonists during the Makai Tree arc of the 2nd season of the 90s anime series. In the original English dub, his name was changed to Alan.
In his normal alien form, Ail's skin is light green. He has pointy elf-like ears; having one earring on his right ear. His eyes are of a dark blue color, whereas his long hair is a lighter shade of blue with pink streaks on the longer bits of his fringe. He wears a dark blue bodysuit that covers his entire figure, just like An.
In his human form as Seijuro Ginga, his skin is of an average, fair tone. His hair is orange and relatively shorter; in this form, it reaches his neck. His eyes remain a purplish-blue. The earring on his right ear is also kept.
Prior to Sailor Moon R
Ail along with An came from an alien planet, whose beings depended on the Makai Tree for life. In fact, it was the tree that gave life to all the aliens, Ail included.
All the aliens on the planet eventually got greedy and fought over the tree among themselves. Ail along with An became the only survivors of their race.
The tree relocated to earth, in the hope to teach its beings love over greed.
Sailor Moon R
Ail and An invaded Earth to drain energy for the Makai Tree and targeted the energy of humans, as they have the type of energy that the Makai Tree needs. While they were posing as humans at Usagi Tsukino's school, Ail fell in love with Usagi. He kept this from An, while initially unaware that she was in love with Mamoru Chiba. However, they soon suspected each other in Episode 4, when An took Mamoru to the virtual reality game, and Ail caught Usagi when she fell off a platform.
In Episode 9, Ail began eating food with Makoto, which made An jealous, so she attacked them. This led to the arrival of the Sailor Guardians, and Ail and An sending Cardian Utonberino after them.
In Episode 10, Ail was disappointed that he was not Prince Charming in the Snow White play, and Usagi was not Snow White. He crashed the play (in which An was Snow White and Mamoru was Prince Charming) by sending Cardian Bipierrot to drain energy.
In Episode 11, Ail targeted Mamoru to drain his energy for An, who was losing energy while in detention with Usagi.
In Episode 13, Ail and An fought the Sailor Guardians, but Ail protected Usagi from the Makai Tree. He soon came to realize that what they were doing was wrong, and was the first to truly realize the power of love, when he saw that Sailor Moon was in love with Mamoru. When An attacked the Moonlight Knight, the Makai Tree whipped Ail with its branches and attempted to stab him, but An took the hit and died of her injuries. The Makai Tree explained to Ail and the Sailor Guardian that it was not evil, and the energy it needed was love energy. After the Makai Tree was healed by Sailor Moon, and An was brought back to life by the Tree of Life. Ail and An left with the Makai Tree to start a new, peaceful life with it with the new understanding of real love they had for each other.
