The Dead Moon Circus* appears
to exist solely for Neherenia
to get revenge on the White Moon for banishing her. They
were searching for Pegasus, a
form Elios took on
when Neherenia captured
him. Pegasus hid
himself in someone's beautiful dream, and to find him,
the minions had to extract the targets dream mirror and
view their dream. They eventually moved on to searching
for a golden dream mirror rather than looking for Pegasus
himself. The Dead Moon
Circus actually has a circus, with a
tent flying over Tokyo. They used lemures
to attack the Sailor
Senshi and to kill the victim if Pegasus
The mysterious Neherenia remains in a world
trapped inside a large mirror, where she can remain
beautiful for eternity. She was the queen of a world, but
became corrupted by evil. She wanted the power of the
golden crystal, which was in possession of Elios. She
eventually grew to want Elios as well. She went to the
White Moon where Serenity reigned and tried to take
control, but was banished. She remained in her mirror
world, vowing revenge. In the anime, she survived and was
manipulated by Galaxia, and eventually healed by
Sailormoon and returned home. In the manga, she was an
alter self of Chaos. The Senshi combined powers to
destroy her. She is possibly named after the mineral
nepheline, found in igneous rocks. Her name is also seen
written as Nepherenia, Nephelenia, and Nephrenia.
Zirconia's gender is up for debate... This person took
orders from Neherenia and in turn gave them to the Amazon
Trio and Quartet. When Neherenia is shown aged when
outside her mirror, she looks just like Zirconia.
Zirconia had a winged eyeball thing named Zircon that
spied and took pictures of possible victims. In the
anime, Neherenia decides Zirconia is useless and, well,
bye-bye ugly thing. In the manga, I dunno o.O Zirconia is
named after zirconia as in cubic zirconia, used as an
artificial diamond. Zircon is named after the mineral
zircon which can be polished into a gem.

after hawk-eye. His name is also seen written as Hawk's
One of the Amazon Trio, Fisheye prefers men for his
victims [manga only]. He was originally a fish. He
manipulates water. He had a very bubbly personality and
is pretty intelligent. In the anime, he figured out that
the Trio wasn't human and the identities of Usagi and
Chibi-Usa. In the manga, his target was (so no, he isn't
gay in the manga), and the two Moons killed him. He
doesn't seem to be named for anything in particular. His
name is also seen written as Fish Eye.

* I just
want everyone to be aware that I'm not entirely certain
what the manga storyline is, only the characterization.
It's a bit confusing to sort out... once I figure it out,
I'll change this. For now, this paragraph reflects the
anime version only.
Note: If I
say "supposedly" in regards to a name, I
haven't confirmed that the source name exists. If I say
"possibly," I've found a source name that could
match up, but I can't confirm whether this was Naoko
