Although it is the picture she wishes to paint for those around her, though who truly know Kokoro is that she is far, FAR from being the 'Perfect Princess'. She doesn't take her studies as seriously as she should since she decided from an early age that she would be a world renown ballerina, which she believes doesn't involve any of the subjects learned in school. She's also known for her lighthearted and playful attitude, especially with guys. It's not uncommon to see her going around playfully flirting with the opposite gender. She can also be very passionate, showing off a brash and outspoken side to herself when she's worked up and excited or angry and upset.
When she first became a Sailor Soldier, she believed it to be all fun and games along with being a beautiful heroine to be idolized. Though during her last two years as Sailor V, she's unfortunately learned that being a Sailor Soldier does come with overbearing responsibilities and sacrificing the chance of a normal life. Having experienced a tragic loss and already somewhat battle hardened, she takes her role as a Senshi seriously. Now that she's distancing herself from her classmates, she's looking toward her mission of assembling a new team of Sailor Soldiers to help fight the enemy. To further elaborate on her a little more, traits and tropes:Lovable Alpha Bitch
Beautiful. Sarcastic. Playful. A tease. Catty. Popular. Since she was a child,she has been doted on and given everything she wanted. Although being filthy rich and spoiled is usually a recipe of disaster for creating an insufferable, self centered person, Kokoro isn't like that at all. At least not very much. She does cross over into acting superficial, is materialistic and slightly self centered but she manages to balance it out with the compassion she has for her family, friends and sometimes even strangers. Particularly, she's known to reach out to and befriend those of weak will and who are unable to defend themselves. Bullies who are disagreeable and go out of their way to make others miserable are earn themselves high on Kokoro's shit-list. She doesn't tolerate disrespect towards herself nor does she tolerate it towards her loved ones or the innocent. One can be sure that if there is a wrong being done in her presence, Kokoro WILL right it. Plucky Girl
Kokoro runs on confidence and energy. Her parents and older brother always told her that there's nothing one can't do if they put their mind and heart into it. And you know what? It was a lesson that was absorbed and taken to heart. Those who know Kokoro have never seen the girl turn down a challenge...well except challenges that relate to Math but other than that, one can expect the blonde to always rise to the occasion. Sometimes she doesn't win, that's part of life, she accepts it. Even while life may get a good hit in to actually kick her down, defeat doesn't stick well with her for too long. When there's a will, there's a way and Kokoro is always determined to come out on top of whatever obstacles are in her way. Genius Ditz
Kokoro doesn't get the highest marks one would expect for a girl of her social class. While she is always encouraged to do her best in her studies, Kokoro just never had any interest in Mathematics, Philosophy, Science, etc. However, she does excel in her personal niche/hobby (ballet) and also in being a Pretty Soldier of Love and Justice.Beware the Silly Ones/The Dreaded
Known to usually be playful and flirty, Kokoro does harbor a hot blooded side that shows itself whenever she sets out to put someone in check. That may include giving someone a harsh reality check through verbal assault or just a good'ole kick to the face if it comes to that. Therefore, the majority of her classmates make it an effort not to ever get on her bad side. As of two years of being a Senshi, she has made a name for herself, single-handedly taking out their monsters and so far has killed one of the Void-Moon's Generals alone.Stepford Smiler
This works in conjunction with her 'Plucky Girl' trait. Kokoro has mastered it from a young age. She really isn't the type break down and/or cry in the presence of her classmates, friends or family. Even if asked if something is bothering her, she's always willing to put on a happy grin to reassure that she is perfectly okay. Even with the weight of the world on her shoulders after discovering her destiny as a senshi and having lost her first love in the line of Senshi duties, Kokoro puts on a brave face to smooth over and hide whatever emotional scarring she's received as a pretty soldier.Married to the Job
Kokoro has always been very loyal to her friends but lately since returning to Japan, she has put her duties as a Senshi in full priority. It's a destiny she has accepted and is fully willing to dedicate herself into protecting her Moon Princess, even if it means the cost of her own wants, dreams and life.Background:
For the first fifteen years of her life, Kokoro lived a charmed existence. She was the second child born to her parents, with an older brother 10 years her senior. In her youth, she became involved with dance, becoming a ballerina at the age of four and has her own little shrine of award trophies from both dance competitions and beauty pageants she's won.
The daughter of the famous hotel and resort mogul, Souske Orimoto, Kokoro has had frequent chances to travel outside of Japan, having spent months abroad at a time. When she was fifteen, she traveled to Rome, Italy while accompanying her father to a grand opening of his then newest resort. During her time there, Kokoro would be approached by a silver furred cat with a crescent moon mark upon it's forehead. Introducing himself as Mani, he claimed to be in search of the Solar System's newest guardians to awaken and informed Kokoro that she was the first and leader of these guardians who would have the mission of finding the new Moon Princess.
Of course, Kokoro had a hard time swallowing the story until she had transformed into Sailor Venus for the first time. However, Sailor Venus wasn't needed and since the newest threat to the solar system were specifically looking for the new Moon Princess, Kokoro and Mani decided to use the Sailor V alias and powers to act as a decoy Moon Princess. Not knowing it was a hoax, the leader of the Void Moon kingdom, definitely took notice of this new Sailor Senshi and saw it as a thread to her plans.
While in Rome, Kokoro acted as a vigilante fighting off the first of Selene's General's, Wiluite, his monsters and average street criminals; which caught the attention of local law enforcement. The chief of police wasn't a fan of Sailor V taking the law into her own hands and matters only became complicated with Kokoro developed a relationship with the chief's son, Vincent. Despite Mani's advice against becoming personally involved with someone, Kokoro shared her secret actvities with Vincent. While her father returned to Japan, Kokoro had convinced him to allow her to stay and attend school in Italy. Her relationship with Vincent and Kokoro's stint as Sailor V in Rome went two years strong but ultimately ended tragically.
Wiluite had discovered Kokoro's identity, and sought to break the girl by kidnapping Vincent and demanded Sailor V's head for Vincent's life. Although Kokoro showed up to the fight atop St. Peter's Basilica, she was forced to watch in horror as Wiluite threw Vincent over the edge. With her first love dead, Wiluite threatened to go after more of the important people in her like. That was more than enough to send the young girl over the edge. Rage driven by the anguish of her love forever lost, Sailor V and Wiluite dueled. The fight ended when the Sailor Senshi used her Venus Love Megaton Shower to destroy the General's body.
Following the incident, Kokoro moved back to Japan. Still hurting from the loss of Vincent, Kokoro dedicated herself more to her duties as Sailor V. In her civilian life, an attempt to resume friendships with those she had left behind before was a failure as she found herself growing more and more distant from her family in peers as her mission and duty as a Sailor Soldier took precedence in her life.

: Like the guardian cats before him, Máni comes from the planet Mau. Knowing that one day, the Sol system and Earth would one day be attacked again, Máni was sent to Earth by the Guardian Cosmos to become an adviser to the Sol System's new Sailor Soldiers when it was time to combat the threat of evil once again. Two years ago, he discovered Kokoro and awakened her as the Senshi of Venus. Since then he has become her closest confidante. He tries to act as a 'cool big bro' to Kokoro. Sometimes he tries a little too hard by speaking in slang and various jargon that makes him come off as corny adult trying to be hip. He also shows curiosity in the customs of Earth and will question anything he finds interesting or confusing. This can be bad since he sometimes lacks a filter for his mouth and his words can hit blunt like a brick.
