Naru Osaka is Usagi Tsukino's best friend from her childhood. She's just a plain normal schoolgirl who goes to Crossroads Junior High and is the same class as her best friend. She lives with her mother Mayumi Osaka (Susan Baker in the DIC English dub) who owns a jewelry store, and has a boyfriend who always has a crush on her named Umino She always gets attacked by monsters but it was lucky that Sailor Moon comes to rescue her even though Naru is a Damsel in Distress.
In the first anime, Naru fell in love with Neflite at one point. When Zoycite found out, she had three monsters kidnap Naru. Neflite saved her from them, but they later killed Neflite. After Neflite's death, she becomes close to Umino and becomes his girlfriend.
While she plays a larger role in the earlier part of the storyline, especially the first anime, in both versions of the story, Naru is eventually downgraded to a minor character as she is not one of the main characters. In the manga she makes a brief final appearance in the Stars part of the manga having been accepted into the same high school as Usagi, while in the first anime her final appearances are in both the Super S season and the Super S Ami special Ami's First Love (which was never released outside of Japan), and as such Naru is never seen in the Stars season.
She was renamed Molly Baker in the original English dub.
Naru has wavy red hair that is slightly shorter than her shoulders and often wears a darker teal bow in her hair. She has teal eyes (unlike her blue-eyed manga counterpart). When she is not wearing her school uniform, she often wears solid-colored skirts and tops. Her school uniform usually has white socks and black Mary Jane shoes. Her normal outfit is that of an orange shirt, teal skirt, and sea green tights with black Mary Jane shoes.
