Garnet in BASH

Leave a comment

And now I turn to the Crystal Gems’ current leader, Garnet! (Again, in Basic Action Super Hero game rules.)
Background: Garnet is actually the fusion of two other Gems, the short-tempered Ruby and the kind Sapphire. While Gems usually only fuse as a combat option, these two have such a close relationship they stay fused most of the time. (Note: despite their similarity to human females, all Gems are genderless.)

Garnet aided Rose Quartz and Pearl during the war against those Gems that would use the Earth as a breeding ground for their kind regardless of its effects on the planet. They won, but there was a lot of death as a result; the gem monsters the Crystal Gems fight may come from the remnants of those Gems.

After Rose passed away, Garnet became the default leader of the team (despite Pearl’s protests that they are all equal). One of her main concerns is that Steven be raised properly.

Her power to see possible futures is both a blessing and a curse; note that if she doesn’t know all the facts, her visions will be imperfect (for example her not knowing it was Pearl rather than Peridot who kept rebuilding the latter’s communications tower kept her from seeing it in her visions.)
