Nomenclature & Etymology
Her name, and her Senshi name (Sailor Vesta), is derived from one of the four major asteroids in the Asteroid Belt, keeping to the theme of our Solar System.
The name Vesta can have its roots in multiple words, such as the Gaelic Celtic visc (fire) or the greek analogous goddess Hestia (stove). But all these words and meanings link the name to the Roman goddess of hearth, home and family.
She is named after Vesta, an asteroid. As is the case with the other asteroids her sisters are named after, it used to be considered a planet until 1845.
VesVes has red hair, red eyes and light skin. She wears a red and black bra and a matching bottoms with a transparent pink skirt. She has golden bracelets and matching ear covers. Her hair is pulled back with numerous golden hairbands with red stones in them. She wears white, horned shoulder pads and red sandals.
In the Materials' Collection, her skin is said to be almost as dark as JunJun's. She is also the second shortest.
Sailor Vesta had scarlet red hair styled into a peculiar high ponytail, with multiple gold bands inlaid with red gems around the majority of it, and a long black band connected to a red oblong piece, that resembled a circle with a crescent-shaped bite taken out of it, containing the rest of her hair. Her sailor uniform consisted of a white leotard with a black chest bow and a red star-shaped brooch affixed to it. Her stripe-less sailor collar was red, her choker was red, her earrings were small red studs, and her tiara was gold with a red star. She had white bubble-like sleeves with a double row of white trim and white bicep-length gloves with red padding. Her skirt was red with a white bow that had a slight sheen of red at the back, and her footwear consisted of white knee-high boots with red inverted triangular arches with yellow stars.
After the Amazoness Quartet were defeated and reverted to their Amazon Stones, they were brought to Neo-Queen Serenity by Sailor Saturn and was asked to use her power on them. As a result the Sailor Quartet appeared, and revealed that they had been sleeping in the Amazon until Sailor Chibi Moon needed them as guardians. The four Sailor Senshi then returned to their sleep until the 30th Century.
When Chibiusa (in the 30th Century), felt that Sailor Moon and everyone's lives were in danger, she transformed determined to travel back in time and help them. At that moment, Sailor Vesta and the rest of the Sailor Quartet appeared to go tho the past with Chibi Moon. Once they arrived they found Sailor Moon, Princess Kakyu and Sailor Chibi Chibi hanging from crosses due to their fight against Sailor Heavy Metal Papillon. The Quartet and Chibi Moon freed them, and the Quartet then destroyed the evil senshi with one attack. Later, in the battle against Sailor Chi and Sailor Phi they helped withstanding Phi's attacks, but when Sailor Moon had to fight the Solar System Senshi that were turned evil, the Quartet was defeated by a combination of Sailor Mercury'sMercury Aqua Rhapsody and Sailor Mars' Mars Flame Sniper, while attempting to shield Sailor Moon.
VesVes uses a whip to attack. Her attacks mostly come from her being the circus' beast tamer.

A religious order of maidens, the Vestal Virgins, was created in dedication to her and tasked with protecting the sacred flame of Vesta.
