Saphir is a young-looking man with dark blue hair, dark blue eyes, fairly pale skin, and he has the black, upside-down crescent moon on his forehead. For clothes, he wears a dark blue jacket with ornaments, that are described in the Materials' Collection to be stainless steel and rod-shaped. He also wears white pants, white shoes, and dark blue gloves. Also, in comparison to the other members of the Black Moon Clan, he does not wear the black crystal earrings.
Saphir doesn't directly fight against the Sailor Senshi at all in Sailor Moon R. He only follows out his elder brother's orders. Saphir is the one who knows how to build or decrease the power output of their black crystaland he does so according to Demande's wishes. Saphir has been quick to point out Esmeraude's faults. He also suspects Wisemanof having evil intentions and silently watches him. He soon discovers that Wiseman is only using Prince Demande and plans to kill him once he is done. Saphir headed into a secret room and manages to steal the dark microchip to weaken the dark palace. However, he was caught by Wiseman who warns him of the Death Phantom's wrath if he goes through with the theft. Saphir manages to fight him off and escapes, but is badly wounded in the process.
He barely escapes and makes it to the past where Petzand her sisters live. There Saphir is reunited with Petz, whom he was in love with and promises to return to her once he can warn Demande. As he was returning, Black Ladyconfronted him and orders him to leave his brother alone. With the timely arrival of Tuxedo Mask, Saphir attempts to warn his older brother about Wiseman, but even with the Sailor Senshiattempting to help him, he was killed with two energy blasts from Wiseman. His head was bandaged by Petz earlier, and when the bandage fell off, there was no dark crescent moon on his forehead, proving his firm transition to the side of good. Demande is heartbroken when he sees Saphir die and begins questioning Wiseman's motives.
Saphir, along with the other members of the Black Moon Clan, began plotting the invasion of present day Tokyo from the planet Nemesisin the 30th Century. He is fascinated by Droids, and he is suspicious of Wiseman.
