The Spectre Sisters, or Ayakashi no Yon Shimai (あやかしの四姉妹) were a group of four members of the Black Moon Clan: Petz, Calaveras, Berthier, and Koan. They appeared in the second season of the anime and the Black Moon arc of the manga. Under the command of Rubeus, they came to 20th-century Tokyo in search of Chibiusa.
In the anime, the four sisters were eventually reformed and were turned human by Sailor Moon.
In the manga, each sister was killed by Sailor Moon after a battle with her Senshi counterpart. Koan, Berthier, and Petz all managed to capture their counterpart Sailor Senshi, but Calaveras was unable to capture Sailor Venus.
Petz, Calaveras, and Koan appeared in the musical Tanjou! Ankoku no Princess Black Lady, and in its revision Berthier was also present with her sisters. In this continuity they had a group attack called "Black Vicious Crystal," performed with Esmeraude in the first musical and with only the four sisters in the kaiteiban.
