Story - Chapter X - La Soldier -
Long before the peaceful Silver Millenium, beyond our solar system, sailor senshi from every planet and star were fighting viciously on a multiversal scale. Codename "Sailor Lost Star" was a lowly soldier part of a small battalion trying to win the war in the name of peace. Their goal was to create a whole new era of peace and organize the senshi into strong united alliances who could protect the people and mediate future conflicts. Sadly, their dream was often the subject of ridicule by the other planets. Rarely could they convince powerful senshi to their cause. The concept of "peace" was thought of as nothing but childish nonsense, too idealistic to ever become reality.
Iris knew how futile the virtues of the battalion were. They often talked about fighting for "love and justice" and how it was important to educate rather than resort to natural, violent temptations. She knew the truth though, people don't have that kind of patience. Did they really think the tyrants annihilating entire planets would really stop and listen?
She did not care for politics or power, but they involved her in their battles the moment she saw nice people she had spoken with not too long ago slaughtered, their city massacred, and orphaned survivors starving on the street. No more. She wasn't stupid. She knew she was weak. There were stronger senshi who had the abilities that mirrored even most devastating nuclear weapons, but it didn't matter. The cause was more important.
