|Background Info||Utena is a tomboyish, courageous and naive character who lives to emulate the idealized prince figure from her childhood. She is forthright, honest, and friendly, and nearly all the girls in school adore her. In the manga, her parents died when she was six years old. On that day she was wandering around, lost, and she fell through a hole in a fence that enclosed a river area. Utena nearly drowned but was saved by a mysterious Prince who kissed away her tears and told her that if she did not lose her noble heart, they would meet again. He left with her a rose signet ring. Later on, Utena receives picture cards that give her clues as to where her prince is. By following these clues, she finds herself at Ohtori Academy.
In the anime, the initial story the anime presents is almost identical to that of the manga, but it is revealed that this is not the whole story. Flashbacks show the young Utena climbing into a coffin upon her parents' deaths, seeing no point to living. She encounters the Prince, and -- for reasons which eventually become key to the show's resolution -- this encounter creates in her the drive to become a Prince herself. Utena does not remember much of this encounter.
