It has been hinted at, through artwork, that The Generals each were once paired with one of the Sailor Senshi. The only two who have been confirmed are Jedite with Sailor Mars, and Kunzite with Sailor Venus.
I, personally, never had any strong emotions towards Jedeite. This was probably because he was the first one to fight, and thus the first one to die, and to the least amount of Sailor Senshi!
In the manga, after Jedeite’s death, Nepherite stores his skeleton, and he is temporarily brought back to life.
