Members of Shadow Galactica
Removing Star Seeds
In the anime, by wearing the bracelets one was able to continue living without a Star Seed, they also increased the wearer's power. A side effect of wearing them was that they put the wearer under Sailor Galaxia's control. Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune were the only ones shown to overpower her control.
As shown in the anime if the bracelets were removed the Sailor Animamates would disappear, as they no longer had Star Seeds. When Galaxia was displeased with one of her minions, she only had to remove their bracelets to dispose of them.
The bracelets were also used to remove someone's Star Seed. In order to do this, the wearer fired balls of golden light from the gems on the bracelet, and when the lights converged and struck the target, their Star Seed would appear from their chest.
In the manga, not all of the members of Shadow Galactica were originally Sailor Guardians, some were individuals who had taken the Sailor Crystal of their respective planet's Senshi and given them to Galaxia. In return, Galaxia gave them the bracelets which gave them powers similar to that of a Senshi and became Sailor Animamates.
The bracelets also gave Galaxia control over the real Senshi who wore them. After she killed the Senshi she revived them and they wore the bracelets. With them on Sailor Galaxia controlled them into attacking Sailor Moon.
- For a person without a Star Seed the bracelets are needed to remain alive, however, when Galaxia transformed into her Chaos Galaxia form, the bracelets shattered but her body did not disappear.
