Elegant, sophisticated, though sometimes cold and capable of sharp anger, she has been described by Usagi Tsukino as 'the ideal princess'.
Michiru attends Mugen Gakuen with Haruka Tenou and the younger Hotaru Tomoe. She is patient and caring, almost always offering a smile or laugh to a situation. While polite and calm to a fault, she is not the most social person, but when she does become close with someone it is because she truly wants to. She dislikes being patronized and will not indulge others.
This can make her look like a snob, and her seeming perfection at everything does not help this perception of her. She is a genuinely intelligent young woman, a prodigal violinist and artist, already famous for her endeavors. Her intelligence is also apparent through her acceptance to Mugen Gakuen, a school with a very high acceptance threshold; only geniuses of some field are permitted enrollment.
Michiru is an extremely beautiful and delicate-looking girl of slim stature and average height, with deep blue eyes and wavy teal hair that falls just past her shoulders. The epitome of elegance and femininity, she has an excellent sense of fashion, being always dressed smartly, and applying makeup or perfectly made up already. Usagi and Minako were both utterly dazzled by her beauty when they first saw her, and Usagi has gone as far as saying that Michiru is exactly what a fairy tale princess would be like.
