Nomenclature & Etymology
Her name, and her Sailor Guardian name (Sailor Ceres), is derived from one of the four major asteroids in the Asteroid Belt, keeping to the theme of our Solar System.
The name Ceres can have its roots in multiple Latin words, such as crescere (to grow), creare (to create/to give birth), cernere (to decide), cera (wax) and cervus (deer). All of these words and meanings link the name to Ceres, the Roman goddess of agriculture, motherly relationships, and fertility.
CereCere has long pink hair that she fashions in a bun and a bow and has it tied in yellow ribbons. Her outfit is a pink bikini, tied around her back with a string hanging around her neck and has bracelets with a pink flower on it. She wears a short slightly transparent skit with a pink design on it. She wears pink shoes with a pink flower on it. On her forehead, is a circle jewel.
Sailor Ceres had pink hair—the same shade as Sailor Chibi Moon's—styled in a high bun with a bright yellow ribbon. She also had droopy ponytails—contained in hairbands the same pink shade as her hair—hanging in a circular fashion by her ears with two long hair bands trailing down with little wisps of her hair peeking out at the ends, securing the rest of her hair into two low ponytails. She had pink eyes that matched her hair color. Her Sailor uniform consisted of a white leotard with a plum purple chest bow and a pink star-shaped brooch affixed to it. Her stripe-less sailor collar was pink, her choker was pink, her earrings were pink roses, and her tiara was gold with a pink star. She had white bubble-like sleeves with a double row of white trim and white bicep-length gloves with pink padding. Her skirt was pink with a white bow that had a slight sheen of pink at the back, and her footwear consisted of white knee-high boots with pink inverted triangular arches with yellow stars.
CereCere and the rest of the Quartet were reverted to their Amazon Stone and she was discovered to be Sailor Ceres, one of the four protectors of Chibiusa. Since she was the leader of the Sailor Quartet, Ceres had most of the speaking lines. After the Amazoness Quartet was defeated and reverted to their Amazon Stones, they were brought to Neo-Queen Serenity by Sailor Saturn who asked the queen to use her power on them. As a result, the Sailor Quartet appeared and revealed that they will remain asleep in the Amazon until Sailor Chibi Moon needed them as guardians. The four Sailor Guardians then returned to their sleep until the 30th Century. When Chibiusa (in the 30th Century), felt that Sailor Moon and everyone else's lives were in danger, she transformed determined to travel back in time and help them. At that moment, Sailor Ceres and the rest of the Sailor Quartet appeared to go to the past with her.
Once they arrived they found Sailor Moon, Princess Kakyuu and Sailor Chibi Chibi hanging from crosses due to their fight against Sailor Heavy Metal Papillon. The Quartet and Chibi Moon freed them, and the Quartet then destroyed the evil Sailor Animamate with one attack.
Later, in the battle against Sailor Chi and Sailor Phi, they helped to withstand Phi's attacks. But when Sailor Moon had to fight the Solar System Sailor Guardians turned evil by Galaxia, the Quartet was defeated by a combination of Sailor Mercury's Mercury Aqua Rhapsody and Sailor Mars' Mars Flame Sniper, while attempting to shield Sailor Moon.
