Powers and Abilities
Matsumi Kaze, as the Sailor Senshi of Quinox, is blessed with the gift of stratokinesis, which is the control of all forms of air, as opposed to aerokinesis, the control of wind. She has a form of "air sense" in which she can "read" or hear the flow of air, often in the form of sound. Through this she can also detect subtle changes in the air around her.
The henshin into Sailor Quinox has changed over the years, mainly as Matsumi has grown into power.
The original transformation required the use of the Quinox henshin wand, along with the words "Q Planet Power, Make-Up!"
After being killed in battle with Sailor Steel Serpent and resurrected by her mother, Matsumi gained an upgrade to super form, although the henshin itself did not really change.
Her third upgrade into Eternal mode gave her a new transformation wand and a new henshin phrase: "Quinox Eternal Power, Make-Up!"
Hyper form doesn't require a henshin phrase or henshin wand, but absorbs a great amount of energy from the Lodestone itself. Each henshin only lasts about 15 minutes to an hour at most.
Due to training with Freya, Sailor Quinox is physically the strongest of the main Sol Senshi. While her physical strength still pales in comparison to Sailor Zephrius and Sailor Atlas, she has been known to be able to punch holes in stone walls with little to no damage to her hand.
Early on this strength was only accessible to her in her senshi form, but more recently she has learned to harness it while even in civilian form.
Matsumi has her own unique style of hand to hand combat. Matsumi, when she first began as Sailor Quinox, usually used her reflexes and agility to her advantage, rather than her strength. As time has worn on, however, she has trained her body and mind to take advantage of both her senshi talents and her own natural abilities. She mainly uses melee tactics on opponents, rather violently sometimes. If possible, she will use the nearest heavy object to knock out her opponent. She will often pin-point her energy to a single area of her body, such as her fist or foot. She has also been known to take on a lot of damage to her body, especially if she is in the middle of an adrenaline rush. As said before, her ability to alter air density can be used to augment her strength. However, it can also be used to add to her natural agility, making her quite the slippery opponent.
Due to her semi-retirement, her skills have dipped slightly but she is currently training to regain her lost footing. Her style has changed slightly to being more controlled, though she doesn't mind attacking an enemies' weak and soft spots, including her favorite attack point: the throat.
Due to her time in Renaissance Italy, Matsumi has gained a new level of control over her powers. These new abilities include an "air sense," allowing her to sense the movement of currents in the air. She has also become more fluent in the use of her Rhapsody Flute/Spear.
Senshi Forms and Attacks
Her original form, this was the first form that Matsumi took when she became Sailor Quinox. Her agility becomes enhanced like all senshi, allowing her to move from distance to distance with ease. Her healing ability also improves, letting her recovering from all but the most life threatening of injuries. Her major attacks were as follows:
Air Blast: Quinox's major attack. Basically gathers particles of air into her hand, infusing them with Quinox energy and firing at her foe.
Tornado Tsunami: Gathers energy into her hand and slams it into the ground, which sprouts up to 3 tornadoes at once at the enemy.
Double Air Blast: Basically the same as Air Blast, but from both hands. Used only once.
Galactic Storm: Not truly a Quinox attack. Focuses the powers of Uranus, Neptune, Saturn and Pluto through Q's body. Only been used once during the final battle against Queen Necros outside the universe.
Upgrade from Original Form. Due to training by Freya, Q gained a huge rise in physical strength in this form. The following are the new attacks in Super Form:
Rhapsody Flute: A weapon Matsumi uses in battle, it allows more concentrated control of air and also seems to be tied to the power to open certain portals as well. It can transform into the Rhapsody Spear in Eternal form.
Rhapsody Shield: Creates a shield of whirling wind around Matsumi as well as anyone near her. Can be extended up to 15 ft.
Rhapsody Armageddon: Creates an explosion from under the target's feet via a powerful shock wave.
The upgrade from Super Form. Her fuku is also unique compared to her fellow outer senshi, losing the front and back ribbon. New Attacks from Eternal Form includes:
Aerith Funnel Beam: Powerful beam blast; Eternal Form's main attack. Gathers energy from above her head, then fires it forward from both hands, creating a swirling beam blast.
Healing Air: Healing burst of air; can heal most injuries not counting life threatening.
Hurricane Beam: Summons power into all ten fingers and fires it as one large blast. Difficult to aim. Barely used.
Grand Air Blast: super large version of Air Blast. Takes at least a min and a half to charge. Barely used.
This is the ultimate upgrade for Sailor Quinox via the loadstone. At this point, she connects herself directly to the Lodestone itself. She has no end to her level of power, since the energy is continually being released and restored. At present time, she can only use this power for a few minutes. before it starts to damage her body, and not even at full power.
The ultimate natural upgrade of Sailor Quinox. For more information, read the Ultra Sailor Senshi page.
In this form, Matsumi has so far showed highly increased strength (perhaps as far as class 20, though it has been revealed she can function at 150 times Earth's gravity) as well as increased speed to the point of creating after images in her wake. She apparently can also fly under her own power for short bursts in this form.
A form past Ultra, created when Kei funneled her natural existence as an avatar of the Cosmic Loadstone through Quinox when she was in Ultra form. In this form she has Class 50 strength and immense control over air. While she did not use much in the ways of attacks during the brief period it appeared, it has a few that can be used.
Ascended Air Blast: An immensely powerful air burst.
Ascended World Cleft: A huge air shock wave from her spear.
The culmination of Quinox's powers, Matsumi achieved this by combining herself with her entire bloodline as well as the planet itself, becoming a massive (nearly the size of half the solar system) being. She used this form to destroy the Unnameable.
After achieving God Form, her powers evolved further, becoming beyond a god and a powerful entity on her own. This new form gave her several new abilities.
- Class 100+ strength
- Healing factor
- Total manipulation of air
- Matter manipulation
- Resurrection of the dead (with limits)
- Self Propelled Flight
- Ability to survive in space and underwater
- Telepathic connection with family
