Princess of Jupiter

Main article: Lita Kino/Early Life

Rebirth

Reborn on Earth, Lita lived with her mother and developed a perchance for cooking. She made friends with a boy named Ken and would maintain her friendship with him well into high school. When she grew up and entered junior high school, she became romantically involved with a boy named Freddy.

However, some time after becoming entangled, Freddy broke up with her. She earned the reputation in her previous school as a bully. Despite her tomboyish beauty, many avoided her because they assumed she would hurt them and that she was unfriendly. As a result, Lita made no friends beyond Ken.

Becoming Sailor Jupiter

Because of her constant fighting she was eventually transferred to Crossroads Junior High School. However, no sooner than she was transferred, Lita beat up three bullies who tried to steal Serena Tsukino's lunch money. While everyone in Serena's school was afraid of her because of rumors, Serena chose to befriend her regardless.

She fell in love with Game Machine Joe. When Zoycite came and extracted Joe's Rainbow Crystal, turning him into one of the Seven Shadow Warriors, Game Machine Man, Luna discovered Lita to be Sailor Jupiter, and gave her a pen that allowed her to transform by saying "Jupiter Power!" She attacked the Negamonster, and then Sailor Moon healed him with Moon Healing Activation, turning him back into Joe. Following this, Lita fell in love with Andrew, whom Serena was also in love with.

Sailor Jupiter fought alongside the other Sailor Scouts against Zoycite and Malachite's monsters.

On their way to the Negaverse, Sailor Jupiter was attacked by the Doom and Gloom Girls, pretending to be Andrew. She destroyed two of them with Jupiter Thunder Crash, but was apparently killed in the process. She later returned to give Sailor Moon power to defeat Queen Beryl. She was revived following this, but lost all memory of being Sailor Jupiter.
