Who is Codename Sailor Earth?

I discovered that my all-time favorite "Doll" making program,
Senshi Maker, has been upgraded to include male, Sailor StarS and even
Parallel Sailormoon character pieces, making doll customization more fun than
ever before. If you haven't played it yet, you seriously need to. Hit up Doll
Divine today, and tell them I sent you. It's a fast and fun way to
make up your own Sailor Guardian images for roleplaying and fanfic writing!
Unrelated to Prince Endymion, (if you ask Sailor Moon creator Naoko Takeuchi, Tuxedo Mask is the true Sailor Earth and Sailor Sun combined) Earth was born on the split of land that once held the Earth and Moon together. One day, that land erupted, splitting the two satellites apart forever, leaving Princess Earth without her kingdom. Taking pity, Queen Serenity allowed the young Guardian to stay at the palace, and in exchange, she would protect the young heir, Princess Serenity. Sailor Earth was younger than Sailor Jupiter, but a little older than Princess Serenity, and loved her like a sister. Of course, after she grew up, the Moon Kingdom was under attack from the forces of the Dark Kingdom, and everyone perished except for Luna and Artemis. (And later we find out Helios, Queen Nehellenia's group, the Amazoness Quartet and Chaos.) With Queen Serenity's dying breath, she sealed away the evil temporarily, and sent everyone to be reborn in the 20th century. However, Earth had the power to zap herself between worlds. As a result, while she was in the process of being reborn, her power manifested, and she was transported on a far away planet, to be reborn much later than her original court.
Revived as a little girl named Midori, (On Gaia, I'm either Green or Earthy, but I've been meaning to change it to Midori, which means "Green" in Japanese.) she was raised by Sailor Mnemosyne and Sailor Lethe on their twin planets. Having no memory of her past as Sailor Earth, or even her past in her new life, she calls Mnemosyne "Mnem-mama" and Lethe "Lethe-papa" and excels at art in school. But her happy childhood is cut short when food and water begin to become scarce on the twin planets, and the people begin fighting each other. Lethe discovers that the people are being controlled by a black magic, wielded by the evil Sailor Galaxia, who is under the influence of Chaos. The tyrannical teenager in gold offers Lethe and Mnemosyne a life of peace, in exchange for their bodies in servitude. Lethe takes the offer, knowing it will lead them to more power and thinking it will save Mnemosyne from a bitter end, but Mnemosyne has a vision that death is waiting for them. Discovering Midori's powers as a Sailor Guardian emerging, she has her adopted daughter use her power to transport herself to a safer place, far away from the dangers of Galaxia.
Midori travels through time and space, eventually finding herself ten years removed from the incident with Galaxia, and living on Earth. Living alone, she befriends Chibiusa and Hotaru right away. One day, a rouge Youma appears, prompting Hotaru and Chibiusa to transform into Sailor Saturn and Sailor Chibi Moon respectively. Seeing them battle the Youma triggers Midori's memories, and the mark of Earth appears on her forehead. Luna (not pictured) and Diana spot this, and Luna uses her mind meld to finish awakening Midori's memories of her past as Sailor Earth. Midori transforms and helps the girls in battle, juts as the Youma is about to attack Chibiusa's little sister, Kousagi. The three unite their powers to save the day. Knowing however that Midori is all alone, Chibiusa finds a way to summon Pegasus, not realizing that her 30th Century incarnation was able to do the same. Pegasus takes Midori to live with him in Elysion, promising to watch over her until she grows up. In finding Midori a place to live, she has helped Midori come full circle, in completing a task originally made by Queen Serenity, her mother's past-life mom.
in the new future, Chibiusa is set to rule over the Earth, Moon and Elysion,
as Usagi and Mamoru have opted to continue their lives "as they
were" instead of ruling as Neo Queen Serenity and King Endymion as their
30th Century counterparts would have done. Chibiusa, now known as Princess
Lady Serenity, still retains her powers as Sailor Chibi Moon, but shares that
mantle as the "next Sailor Moon" with Kousagi, who has recently
formed her own team as Sailor Parallel Moon. Having taken in some training
from Sailor Venus, Sailor Earth has adopted the "Codename" mantle
from V, and aside from keeping up her duties to protect the world and the White
Moon Kingdom from harm, she hopes to set out one day to find Sailor Lethe and
Sailor Mnemosyne, and bring them to Earth to live peacefully with the rest of
the Sailor Guardians. But first, she has to help the princess prepare for her
upcoming nuptials to Priest Helios, which will also begin her coronation.
