     Rei is a young Shinto Priestess who lives in the Hikawa Jinja shrine with her grandfather. Since her powers are fire based, this may be the reason why she has a fiery temper and strong will. When first seen by Usagi and Ami, she is admired for her ambitious nature. 

Rei and Usagi constantly argue and tease each other. Rei often depicts herself as the obvious leader creating conflicts between Usagi and herself. On the outside, Rei seems to dislike Usagi a lot, but it could be argued she actually cares about her the most. 

For example, in the first movie 'Promise of a Rose' Sailor Moon was feeling down because Fiore had taken Mamoru away from her. Sailor Mars was the first to give her courage to fight again. In the following battle, Sailor Moon could have been in great danger as there were too many enemies targeting them. Sailor Mars grabbed hold of her arm and threw her away, so there was a chance for her to escape, replacing herself in danger. As Rei learns more about Usagi’s role, the criticism dies down and she learns to respect her. It wasn't only because she was their Princess, but because she was her true friend.
