Seiya Kou is one of the members of the Three Lights idol group, and is the civilian identity of Sailor Star Fighter.

Nomenclature & Etymology

Etymology

The name "Seiya Kou" means "star field light" (sei ya kou).

Appearance

Civilian

Seiya initially has a typical teenage boyish appearance. She has long black hair tied into a ponytail and wears silver earrings. She has blue eyes. As a member of the Three Lights, she wears a green shirt with a yellow tie and a red coat over it, with a red rose.

Senshi

Sailor Star Fighter is the middle-heighted of the Sailor Starlights. She has long black hair tied into a long ponytail, identical to the other Starlights. She has blue eyes. Her sailor fuku, identical to the other Starlights, is a navy blue two piece outfit, consisting of a bikini-like top and hotpants. She wore knee-length boots and elbow-length gloves. She wore a golden beaded tiara, beaded belts on her waist and golden star earrings. Her secondary color was light blue. She also wore a light blue belt-like choker and belt-like straps on her upper arm.

Personality

Seiya is the leader of the Three Lights. She first runs into Usagi at the airport when Mamoru is about to leave to the United States. She then transfers to Juuban Municipal High School, along with Taiki and Yaten.

Seiya is then a grade 10 high school student and becomes a star American football player in Usagi's school, and also replaces Haruka Tenou as the star athlete, which causes Haruka to become annoyed. However, the Sailor Senshi becomes suspicious about her true identity.

Throughout the series, she also develops deep feelings for Usagi. However, Usagi was still deeply in love with (and in Stars, mourning) Mamoru. Despite this, the two came to understandings about each other and their missions, and appeared to still care for each other.

Seiya is also deeply devoted to Princess Kakyuu.

According to Takeuchi's Materials collection, Seiya is depicted as cool, but not very understandable. She is always mad and a worrying super-pessimist. Though, Seiya appears to develop as a character throughout Stars, as well.

Background

Sailor Star Fighter, along with Sailor Star Maker and Sailor Star Healer, first appear at the end of Act 50, after Sailor Iron Mouse attacks the Sailor Senshi, who is destroyed by a Star Sensitive Inferno attack. The Senshi are shocked and wonder who the three are.

Towards the end of Act 51, Seiya accidentally emits "cosmic energy", causing Sailor Aluminum Seiren to sense her Star Seed and appears. Ami, Makoto, Usagi, Michiru, and Haruka transform, and Sailor Aluminum Seiren grabs hold of Mercury and Jupiter. Eternal Sailor Moon fails to attack Aluminum Seiren, and Mercury's and Jupiter's bodies are destroyed and she grabs hold of their Sailor Crystals. Seiya, Taiki, and Yaten use their Sailor Change Stars to transform and Aluminum Seiren is destroyed by a combination of Maker's Star Gentle Uterusand Fighter's Star Serious Laser. The three introduce themselves as Sailor Star Fighter, Sailor Star Maker, and Sailor Star Healer: the Sailor Starlights.

All three of them has been a constant source of help for Sailor Moon whenever she was close to defeat. They, along with Princess Kakyuu, went with Eternal Sailor Moon to Sagittarius Zero Star, with Fighter keeping an eye on her. However, once they reach their destination, they reach a desert with a mysterious cloaked figure on a boat on the sand. Once they enter the boat, the desert turns to water and all of them drown. The figure, revealed to be Sailor Lethe, prepares to kill Eternal Sailor Moon when she and Mnemosyne are destroyed by Sailor Chiand Sailor Phi. Both of them absorb the Sailor Crystals from the still unconscious Sailor Starlights, resulting in their death.

Trivia

  • The Japanese school year begins around April 1 and ends in late March of the following year. Because Seiya's birthday occurs on July 30, Seiya ages to 17 about 3–4 months after the school year begins in Stars, which is not very long after the school year begins. In comparison, Usagi ages on June 30.
    • Seiya's birthday occurs only one full month after Usagi's exactly.
  • According to Takeuchi, Seiya is like Haruka and Mamoru broken in half and added together. She was modeled after Jenny Shimizu.[8]
  • In the Mixx manga, her name was changed to Seiya Lights, implying to the Three Lights.
  • Naoko Takeuchi made her share a birthday with Arnold Schwarzenegger.[9]
