An aristocrat who watches over the gems who serve Blue Diamond.

(Note: design is outdated and needs a redesign!)

Appearance

Aquamarine is a very tall gem who's height almost matches the diamonds. She has a long face and nose, slanted eyes, and puffy lips with blue lipstick. Her teal hair is smooth and drapes over her left eye. The curved streaks in her hair resemble water. Aquamarine's armless torso features a transparent crystal corset. It's attached to an odd dress made out of moving waterfalls. Rarely is she ever seen with her eyes open, but those who have seen it claim it's pitch black with glowing blue pupils. Her gemstone is located on her long neck.

Personality

Cold and sadistic, Aquamarine is not one to show kindness. She keeps her emotions locked away in order to appear menacing. The beryl is often rather disrespectful towards the members of her court. One of the reasons she keeps her eyes closed is that she doesn't want to look at unworthy faces. This doesn't mean she's unable to care, but she often shows it in secret. Aquamarine has shown affection to members of her court, specifically her pearls. But many in her inner circle know how much she loves Blue Diamond. On multiple occasions, she's seen to be very protective of her court members. However, Aquamarine is hostile towards them if they don't do her job right. She's only like this to impress her diamond. Courageous and always speaks her mind, she's not one to mince words. In fact, she speaks with clarity and intimidation, suitable for her role. Aquamarine knows what is and what's not the right thing to say according to each gem she talks with. She's always level headed and calm, rarely ever gets mad. When she does, she opens her eyes to show it.

Abilities

Aquamarine has standard gem abilities.

A very powerful, but slow moving gem. She doesn't need weapons to fight and focuses on her abilities instead.

Skillset:

  • Leadership: As a manager for gems serving Blue Diamond, Aquamarine must naturally have good management skills. She often keeps tabs on her gems and will quickly notify them if they stray from their task.

Unique Abilities:

  • Gravity Manipulation: Aquamarine's signature ability. She can create, shape, and manipulate gravitation. However, she has limited range. The farther away an opponent is from her, the weaker her powers are.
    • Gravitational Upforce and Downforce: She can increase and decrease gravity at will.
      • Weight Manipulation: The natural gravitational adjustment gems have can be manipulated by Aquamarine. She make gems lighter or heavier.
      • Levitation: Aquamarine can decrease her gravity significantly in order to float.
    • Floortilting: She can shift the direction in which gravity pulls on objects.
    • Gravity Crushing: Aquamarine can use gravity fields to crush someone or something.
    • Gravitational Force Field: Capable of creating a force field from gravity. She can't hold it for very long and it can only be formed on one side.
    • Gravity Aura Reading: Because gems have gravity shifting and adjust their mass to local gravity levels, Aquamarine is capable of sensing others by their gravitational field. However, she can only sense them from within her estate.
  • Hydrokinesis: A sub ability that came as a result of her main ability. She can control water by gravitational pulls.
    • Water constructs: Aquamarine is capable of creating constructs she can control. She only uses it to form hands for herself.

History

Relationships

Blue Diamond
