They had been placed in a deep sleep, awaiting the time when they could become the future protectors of [[ Chibiusa|Sailor Chibi Moon]] , analogous to [[ Sailor Moon|Princess Serenity]]'s four soldiers (the [[ Guardian Senshi]] ) and to Prince Endymion's four generals (the ''[[ Shitennou (Sailor Moon)|Shitennou]] '').

|−|The Sailor Quartet's uniforms are a cross between those worn by the Sailor Team in their first forms and their final forms, with the Quartet's own image colors. The uniforms have one-layer skirts, belts, chokers and back-bows like those on the Sailor Team's first uniforms, with boots, gloves, brooches, leotards, and tiaras the same as the final forms. Their shoulder pads are in the style of the final uniforms, but are white. Each member has unique earrings. |+|
|−|The Quartet appears in several of the [[Sailor Moon musicals| stage musicals]] , with a substantially different background. Here they are [[homonculi]] created by [[ Professor Tomoe]], and are known as the '''Sammael Quartet'''. They are portrayed as young children around [[Chibiusa]] 's apparent age, instead of their normal ages. They are created from Chibiusa's [[starseed] ], and are linked to her, having the power to transform into Sailor Senshi as a result. | |
| The Sailor Quartet
The Sailor Quartet (セーラーカルテット), sometimes referred to by the fanon term Asteroid Senshi, appeared only in the manga and musicals. They were four Sailor Senshi who were to awaken as Chibiusa's bodyguards when she took on the role of Sailor Chibi Moon. They represented four of the asteroids in the Solar System's asteroid belt that were at one point in time classified as planets. Their names were Sailor Vesta, Sailor Pallas, Sailor Ceres, and Sailor Juno.
They were prematurely awakened in the Dream arc of the manga by the Dead Moon and recruited as the villainesses CereCere, PallaPalla, JunJun, and VesVes (the Amazoness Quartet). In the manga, after the Dead Moon was defeated, their true Senshi forms were revealed. In the anime, the Amazoness Quartet appeared in the Sailor Moon SuperS season but did not become Senshi.
