Mental Malfunction: Trusting- Steven is a very nice kid who likes helping people. He even gives those who others would not trust (like Peridot) a chance. By that same token though, he’s been tricked several times.
Point Value: 41
Background:
Steven is the son of Greg Universe (a car wash owner from Beach City) and Rose Quartz, the leader of a group of alien warriors called the Crystal Gems. However his mother and him could not coexist (apparently he needed her gemstone to survive) so she “discorporated”. Steven was then raised by the other Gems in their temple, to which his father agreed because he “did not get that magic stuff.” Greg is a presence in Steven’s life, though he tends to be a free-range child (he doesn’t even go to school) as the Gems care little for normal human affairs.

Steven has slowly been discovering and mastering his powers; there might still be more to find.

He also found a pink, magical Lion that attached itself to him. While it seems it has a connection to Rose, even the other Gems do not know its origins yet.

Eventually Steven met a Hindu Girl named Connie. They have grown very close, to the point Steven can fuse with her (a basic Gem ability) into a being called Stevonnie. They have also trained a lot to fight together, Connie using her sword skills and Steven his Shield power.

Recently, Steven learned that the Gems came to Earth to prevent their own people from despoiling it thousands of years ago. They won, but could never return to their homeworld afterwards. Currently, other Gems have shown up and attacked them; while the good Gems won, their threat still looms over Earth.
