Ladies and gents - meet my newest Gemsona! XD
I've just recently got an idea for her. So many people have been mentioning Gems that are smaller than the Shortie Squad and I thought: "What if instead of two Gems making it alive out of the crashed space ship I make three?" And somehow a nickname Spot and a Gemstone with just one spot at the center of it came to mind - and the rest is history I don't remember anymore. XD I know I looked up gemstones that have spots and only dalmatian jaspers came up, so I decided to stick with it (could change it somehow if I find better). The colored ones looked like ladybugs, and I wanted mine to be red - so that's what I picked. I usually look up the meanings and uses for gemstones, but nothing came up for this one that I already had planned for her.
She's a micro-tech genius. She's kinda like a real bug that could stick into small spaces and work things out inside super-fast - but that's all she can do. They rely on numbers and other bigger Gem-technicians to get the job done.
Other than that - I heavily referenced praying mantises and ladybugs for her - and added super big goggles for the total geeky look. The hair.... I'm still working on it, XD but I like the messy version I made on the second drawing (although I've seen WoW Undeads with better haircuts lol).
As for her personality - she's kinda like Peridot, but... annoying in another way. She's always busy with something or upset when she doesn't have what to do; she's so into the stuff she works on and uses only tech-terms that makes understanding her really hard (I think only Peridot and Pearl would be able to follow her - and maybe my other Gemsona, Amber...); but she can take a breather and make sentences that other Gems can understand (although she mainly does that for Emerald). She's angry most of the times, because the technology on Earth is very primitive to her and she can barely patch up anything she gets the idea for because of the lack of resources.
And now for her backstory: (SPOILER ALERT!!
for anyone that is interested in reading my SU fan fiction one day - but since that day may come whe/never, you may as well go ahead; also, if you're not interested, you can skip to the "end of spoiler" mark in the next paragraph
) there are two options for now - one is that she managed to survive the crash and emerged when Amber and Emerald did; second - and this one goes better with the story I already have (but I'm not wholly satisfied with it) - she survived the crash during it's actual crash
; she got caught up in the Gem war and she couldn't get the attention of anyone (both because of her size and because everyone was mostly fighting and/or didn't care); she tried building a communicator with what she could find by herself in order to contact the Diamonds or whoever she could contact on Homeworld - but Garnet and Pearl discovered her, thought she was a threat, and, without listening to her, poofed her and bubbled her.
At some point during her own story - after she learned what became of the Gems that the Rebels fought and how even the Corrupted Crystal Gems ended up bubbled in the Temple, Emerald asked Garnet and the rest to look through Garnet's room - to see if she could find any of the Gems that may be her comrades. She finds Spot and begs the rest of the Crystal Gems to let her out, so she could see if there was any normal sense left in her old friend from Homeworld. Despite being overly cautious, and remembering why they poofed her, they let Emerald do it, and, well... that's how Spot's story on Earth continues. XD (End of Spoiler)
... I mentioned Amber a few times, and I don't know if I ever did before - but I have more than one SU OC whose story will be tied with the rest of them - so no more spoilers from me.
- I'm sorry our designs of Dalmatian Jaspers turned out to be so different. XD
