Pearl (Steven Universe)

Leave a comment

Continuing with my adaptations of Steven Universe characters in Basic Action Super Hero game rules, we now turn to my favorite Crystal Gem, Pearl!

Background: Pearl is a member of a race of sentient, shapeshifting alien gems. Specifically, she’s a Pearl, part of a class of pretty servants. When she came to Earth thousands of years ago, she learned the concept of knighthood (from some unknown civilization) and became sworn to protect Rose Quartz. She sided with her against the Gems who wanted to plunder the planet’s mineral resources. They won, but were exiled on Earth. Although she missed outer space, she was happy to be with Rose.
But then, about a decade ago, Rose fell in love with Greg Universe. Pearl became jealous, but tried to think of it as just a fleeting distraction.
And then Rose died giving birth to Steven.
We don’t yet know the details of Pearl’s reaction to that. We do know however, that Steven reminds her of Rose, and she considers him “her baby”.
Unlike most Pearls, this one is both a great warrior and a prodigious inventor. She’s also a perfectionist who can be too strict with others, and even with herself.
