Cyprine and Ptilol were the fifth member of the Witches 5. According to the Materials Collection, the two of them were one twin, but when they fight Ptilol would split away from Cyprine. She is a level 999 witch and the most powerful member of the Witches 5. She also taught the witch training class at Mugen Academy.
Nomenclature & Etymology
Cyprine's name comes from the silicate mineral "cyprine", which is a bluish variety of vesuvianite. The word "cyprine" itself is derived from "Kypros" (Κύπρος), the Greek word for "copper," which gives the mineral its blue color.
Cyprine has blue hair and blue eyes. Her hairstyle looks similar to Ptilol's hairstyle with the only the differences being the position of the bun/braid and the color of the hair. She wears a black dress with blue shapes near the top, her dress has a blue underskirt, matching blue tights and slightly darker blue boots. She has many ribbons on her outfit and has a clover shaped red earring.
Cyprine and Ptilol were summoned by Kaorinite to kill the students that had escaped Mugen Academy. After an unsuccessful attack on Haruka, the two used their powers to manipulate the feelings of the Senshi into attacking each other. They were finally killed by Super Sailor Moon with her Rainbow Moon Heartache attack.
She is brought back with the other Witches 5 by Kaorinite, and is destroyed by the Outer Senshi.
In the anime, Cyprine and Ptilol made their first and only appearance in episode 123, and claimed to be the strongest of the Witches 5. Indeed, the Sailor Senshi had a difficult battle against them because when one witch absorbed any attack with their magic staffs, their own magical powers would increase. The Senshi only managed to destroy them by tricking the two into firing their attacks at each other.
Cyprine's strategy to capture Pure Heart Crystals was to gather all of the Mugen Academy students near the statue of the Messiah of Silence deep within the school, which would then collect their Pure Hearts. The statue shattered when Cyprine and Ptilol were destroyed.
Cyprine often flirted with Professor Tomoe in the lab, which caused Kaorinite to be extremely jealous. She seemed to enjoy taunting Kaorinite in this manner. She could attack by firing blue energy blasts from her magic staff.
Cyprine was with the other Witches 5 when Kaorinite gathered them and ordered them to gather souls and destroy the Senshi. Cyprine, along with the other witches, overlooked Eudial's Daimon attack on the Senshi.
She was called by Kaorinite after the other four witches were destroyed. Kaorinite was aware Haruka and Michiru were spying on the academy and ordered Cyprine to make them vessals for Daimons, Kaorinite also gave Cyprine a part of the Taioron Crystal. Cyprine summoned a hailstorm that would start reaping souls for Pharaoh 90, as well as turn people beserk and attack one another. She located Haruka's apartment and attacked her, causing sever damage to the place. Haruka transformed into Sailor Uranus and was joined by Sailor Neptune and Sailor Pluto. She was able to attack all three until the Inner Senshi arrived. She bound the Senshi and used her powers to have the Senshi attack each other. Sailor Moon, protected by the Silver Crystal, was immune to the spell and tried to stop them, to no avail. Sailor Moon used Moon Spiral Heart Attack on Cyprine, but the witch was unharmed and Ptilol, an identical extention of Cyprine emerged. They were finally killed by Super Sailor Moon with her Rainbow Moon Heartache attack. She returns in episode 35 with the other Witches 5 along with Ptilol, and is destroyed for good by Sailor Neptune with her Submarine Reflection.

In the manga, she had the power to manipulate the feelings of people. She could manipulate the weather to cause hail storms. She used an attack called Ribbon Buster, which released a tangle of ribbons that seemed to cause pain to her enemies when the ribbons touched them.
She had the ability to hypnotize a large amount of people, bringing them to Mugen Academy to surrender their Pure Heart Crystals. She was also able to levitate and transport the Senshi into a pocket dimension. Using her staff, she could fire projectiles at the Senshi, as well as absorb their attack, allowing her and Ptilol to increase their power
Like the other Witches 5, she is capable of flying in the air and can also move at quick speed. She is the strongest of the Witches 5, able to use a strong blast, Ribbon Buster, and take on the three Outer Senshi. She also has strong powers of mind control, and is able to summon a hail storm, using it as a way to reap souls and bring victims under her control. She is also able to take on the full force of Moon Spiral Heart Attack and survive, without needing to create a barrier of some kind.
