Yasha is a Youma who works for Zoisite. In episode 23, she does not seem to be the main antagonist of the episode, as most of the other monsters are, but rather Nephrite himself. Her mission is to spy on Nephrite and obtain the Silver Crystal.
Yasha initially has the appearance of a human woman with smooth hair, wearing a mask and robe. Yasha's face in human form is never shown. When the mask is destroyed, she reveals her true form: a hideous demon with large horns.
Nomenclature and Etymology
"Yasha" means demon in Japanese.
During the episode, Nephrite fights the Sailor Guardians and is at a disadvantage. Sailor Moon is about to attack him with her tiara when Naru jumps in front of him to protect him, forcing Sailor Moon to stop the attack. Yasha, who had been spying on Nephrite the entire time, then attacks him under the assumption that he has the Silver Crystal, though he has the star crystal. The crystal falls to the ground and as Naru picks it up, Yasha lunges at her demanding she gives her the crystal. Nephrite then blasts Yasha in the face with a fireball, breaking her mask. Yasha infuriated that Nephrite would betray the Dark Kingdom and defend a human, reveals her true form and attempts to kill him with her horns, but is instead killed by Sailor Moon's Moon Tiara Action. Her final words were "You have destroyed me!"
- Her mask is seen in the first opening in a photo.
