Haruka is a young woman who excels in almost everything she attempts. She gets excellent grades, is very athletic and has a great degree of artistic skill. Haruka is also the reincarnation of Sailor Uranus, one of the Outer Senshi. While she doesn’t know this at first, she can sense her destiny is approaching and she seeks to avoid it. She is a world class driver and pilot, partially because any chance she gets to race allows her to briefly escape the feelings of destiny that constantly exist at the back of her mind.

Haruka is very tomboyish. She prefers to wear men’s clothing (including a male school uniform) and talks and acts in a manner that is very masculine. This pretense is so effective that it can fool the unobservant. Haruka is also a lesbian, and a bit of flirt when it comes to women she finds cute.

As Sailor Uranus, Haruka was once tasked with protecting the solar system from outside invasion. Because of this she was granted abilities greater than those of the Inner Senshi (who were primarily bodyguards for Queen Serenity). She is faster, stronger and a better fighter than any of the Inner Senshi – and this is compared to the potential they will only realise after years of adventuring. At the moment, she far outstrips them in raw power. This power, like most of the senshi, is mainly limited to her ability to launch magical attacks and absorb punishment. As a human, she borders on the edge of human achievment. While nothing she does is superhuman per se, her ability to accomplish these feats routinely and in a large variety of fields rates her as exceptional.

Uranus has the Space Sword, a powerful talisman, sealed inside her heart crystal (the physical expression of her soul). The Space Sword is a powerful melee weapon that improves Uranus’ already impressive combat ability. If combined with the Deep Aqua Mirror and Sailor Pluto’s Garnet Orb, it can summon the Holy Grail: a talisman potentially more powerful than the Ginzuishou. She was not originally aware of the location of the talisman, or the reason it was sealed away.
