Takeuchi Naoko's Notes:
The First Sailormoon Series (for convenience sake)
Beryl is the ruthless woman who we see, watching the moves of the senshi and shitennou. It is revealed how Beryl became who she is- by falling in love with Prince Endymion and meeting Queen Metallia in the Dark Kingdom. Metallia gives Beryl the power to start a war between the Earth and Moon, then tries to kill Princess Serenity herself (Endymion protects her and is killed instead). When Princess Serenity kills herself in her grief, Queen Serenity uses her power to send her, reborn, into the future. She also sends Metallia, Beryl, and the other major players of the war as well.
Beryl tries to take what she can to have everything that Princess Serenity once had and she did not- Power, Endymion, and a Kingdom. Beryl does this in a very cruel and selfish way, not caring who she squashes to get what she desires. She kidnaps Tuxedo Kamen and manipulates his body like a puppet, turning him against the senshi. Sailormoon tries to reason with Tuxedo Kamen. Meanwhile, Beryl attacks the other senshi. Sailor Venus uses the sword she pulled from the ruins of the Moon Kingdom to kill Beryl.
Beryl has a similar story in the anime. She still has an affection for Endymion, though it isn't explored as much, it's clear when she keeps him and turns him evil that she wants him for herself. Beryl stays behind the scenes until the final battle when Sailormoon treks to D Point to attack her. Sailormoon first convinces Tuxedo Kamen to come to his senses, who protects her from Beryl. Beryl combines with Queen Metallia and Sailormoon emerges as Princess Serenity, using the ginzuishou to kill both Beryl and Metallia.
Rotten to the core, Beryl is cold and cruel. She uses Metallia's powers but plans to really rule the world herself, with Metallia out of the picture. She is jealous of Princess Serenity and wants everything that she has: Endymion, power, beauty, and to rule. Beryl is aloof and cold. She doesn't care who she uses or disposes of.
Beryl is similar to the manga version in the anime. She is cruel, malicious and people are disposable, to the point where she actually kills Zoicite herself, despite Kunzite's protestation. She wants power and seems more willing to share it with Metallia than she does in the manga.
Beryl is more vindictive and cruel and less human in the dub. She says, for example that she has 'heard of it' in reference to the emotion love. She also seems to be more power-hungry. Because Metallia is not a queen in this but instead just energy, it really leaves her more in charge of the show. This makes Beryl more assertive and less subservient, and much more of the boss than in the original version.
Why They Were So Evil!:
Beryl was afflicted by envy and want. Her ambition allowed her to claw her way up to get anything that she desired, weather that be power, the world, servants, or Endymion. Anyone who stands in her way? Eh, they're disposable.
