In the anime
In the anime, Rei is more hot-tempered and less icy. She fights with Usagi Tsukino a lot because she worries for her safety and that of the planet they are sworn to protect. Despite their fights, they are extremely close friends who love each other dearly. She lives with her goofy priest of a grandpa at Hikwana Temple. She is not only hotheaded but is skilled in the art of fire reading, and has prophetic dreams.
Forms and powers
Rei goes to TA Private School. It is an exclusive school for girls so she wears a different uniform than the other senshi. She studies with the other Inner Senshi at her house.
But aside from studying and being a sailor senshi, she still fulfills her duties as a Shinto priestess and takes her responsibilities seriously. Especially because her grandfather who she calls, ojii-chan owns Hikawa Jinja. Her grandfather takes care of her and she also lives with him in Hikawa Jinja. In this form, she can use ofudas to banish evil spirits. She can still banish evil spirits in all her forms.
Rei's parents are not shown in the anime, but the manga provides an interesting note. Rei's father is a powerful and high ranking government official and too busy to meet with her. Rei dislikes for her father because of this. And Rei's mother is also shown in the manga. A very pretty person who died when she was young.
Rei is really rich considering the high standing of her father and her grandfather maintains a Shrine.
Rei is treated as a queen in TA. Her schoolmates respect and admire her very much. She is very popular and is very busy heading many activities for her school and at one time, she even headed a festival. In the anime, Rei writes her own songs. She even sang her own song in front of many people.
What about the future? Rei dreams to be a singer, songwriter, model, seiyuu (voice actress), and wife. Truly, Rei is already a lot of things and she even wants to succeed some more in the future! And she also wants to be a stewardess (as shown) She even confided this to Usagi.

A fiery and headstrong Aries ruled by the planet Mars. Her blood type is AB, which is usually asociated with stubborn people. Rei's personality is different in the manga.
