Kino Makoto is Sailor Jupiter. Her interests lie in cooking, cleaning, and flower shops. Her parents died in a plane crash when she was young and she lived on her own while in school.
She is the tallest of the inner senshi and wears her hair in a high ponytail. After her return from Crystal Tokyo with the other inner senshi, Makoto ran the Sidebar Cafe until it was rebuilt as the rantbox (this is no longer online).
Makoto dated Furuhata Motoki for quite a while, but since he just couldn't kick the furry/animal habit, the relationship seems to have slowly died off.
Her current activities are unknown.
During the events of The Eightfold Empire civil war, members of The Hotel discovered the past of Makoto was not as they had once thought. Details of this newly discovered past are as follows.
"Traitor" in the Silver Millennium
During the Fall of the Moon Kingdom, the princesses Jupiter and Venus soon found themselves overwhelmed in the midst of battle. Near death, Jupiter reflected on everything which had gone wrong with her life and the course of the war. Just as it seemed all hope was lost for herself, a voice came to her, speaking to her of the betrayal of her people and the destruction of everything she had loved. This unknown being offered her another chance, one which may allow her to continue the fight and turn the course of the conflict. Desperate and out of choices, Jupiter agreed to the proposition, before silently passing on. At that very moment, her body was taken over by an unknown presence, one which forced it's way into the palace, killing the guard on duty and destroying the relay which allowed communication with the other worlds, thus hastening the end. Having accomplished what it needed to do, the entity leapt to it's death, allowing itself to be reborn on Earth inside the form of the princess.
Tricks, Lies, and Sailor Senshi
Reborn on Earth, the entity, now one with Jupiter's Soul, took it's place as a secondary persona buried under the mind of it's female host. Realizing it needed a way to hide and support it's current form, the entity took on the identity of the deceased Kino Makoto, a fair haired child who died in a plane accident with it's parents. Utilizing money which had been set aside by the child's grandparent and using the excuse that it belonged to her "uncle", the false Makoto was able to procure an apartment far above what would normally be possible. In addition, the entity manipulated the personality of it's host, giving her a tom-boyish personality which allowed it to push away other individuals, keeping itself isolated and thus safe from notice. "Kino Makoto" would eventually transfer to Juuban Junior High School, beginning a new chapter of her/it's life...
Makoto is a strong and independent woman, having lived on her own since her parents died until moving to Crystal Tokyo with the other Inner Senshi. Despite her strength and dedication to training, she loves domestic activities and among all the senshi is known for her spotless abode and delicious food. She does, however, have a tendency to pine about her "sempai," who broke her heart, and has a nurturing personality, which is no doubt what enabled her to stay with Motoki for so long.
Her relationships with the other senshi seem strong, and she admired Ten'ou Haruka especially for her strength and fighting skills. She is often protective of others and comes across as a tomboy, although her personal style is often very feminine. She is known to have the most "Talent."
She has always had the dream of running a restaurant, which was achieved with the Sidebar Cafe, and a flower shop.
