So I gave in and watched Steven Universe, and it gave me a million not okay feelings, and I needed to make my obligatory OC. Cough. What do you mean 2001 was almost 15 years ago, I'm obviously still thirteen.
Of course, back in the 90s, I had gemstone-themed OCs, because the 80s weren't REALLY over. But their names were variations on Crystal/line and Pearl. So I needed a new one. (I also had a Rose character for Rose Quartz reasons, because /pink sparkly rocks guys/, but can't have that here.)
So here's Watermelon Tourmaline, because everything I touch is watermelons! She has bell bottoms that end in green, and white shoes, and is generally tacky-looking and gradient-y. I don't think she fights much--Watermelon Tourmaline is a stone used for healing and relating to love, so I think she's kind of a big hippie. She likes to restore gemstones that've been cracked, but I think she's forgotten how to use that power on her own kind. She spends a lot of time collecting rocks and talking to them. I think she thinks it's terribly sad that gemstones on Earth can't take other forms.
Weapons-wise, I don't think she's very well-trained, but she uses throwing blades in a pinch, and she puts things in her sleeves. She'd be the party white mage and stay out of the way until someone requested her. She's not very tall, but most of her height is in her legs, and she can kick pretty high. She has knee and elbow pads because she crawls around in caves looking for stuff.
She's the type of idealist that likes to pretend bad things don't happen, won't happen, and didn't happen in the past. But she'll help anyone who asks, because she doesn't want to believe there's bad in anyone. She's also easy to bribe with shiny things.
...Everyone I design is a magpie.
