Carnelian is an orange gem who first appears as a cameo in the fanon episode, "We are the Homeworld Gems".
Carnelian is an orange gem with tangerine skin and dark orange hair with pale orange eyes. She keeps her hair in a ponytail above her head. She wears the regular Homeworld outfit and a yellow diamond due to being in Yellow Diamond's faction. Her gem is an "imperfect, defective" Carnelian on her right wrist.
Carnelian is cold, mean and downright evil but this is only a facade to cover up her fragile person and low self-esteem. She has a strong hate for Peridot, Jasper and The Diamond Authority as they consider her imperfect due to her gem. This leaves her with a strong desire to leave but choses to stay loyal for unknown reasons.
All gems have the ability to summon a weapon, shapeshift, fuse with other gems and retreat to their gemstone after becoming injured to heal. Activating her gem summons an claymore. She can fuse with Jasper to create Fire Opal and Mangano Calcite to form Imperial Topaz.
She has hated Jasper from the very begining as Jasper calls her names such as "Defective", "Faker" and "Weak", and in return Carnelian calls her, "Big Buff Cheeto Puff" or "Cheeto" and "Bara Space Rock". The two have a strained and very hard relationship up the point where they almost stopped the Gem Olympics just because of this.
She shares the same relationship with Peridot as she does with Jasper but theirs is less hardcore and more mere hate because of their affiliation with said Gem. Carnelian nicknamed her, "Green Dorito" or just, "Dorito".
Share the same hate of Jasper (and/or Peridot) but don't see each other and only met during the Gem Olympics.
- Her nicknames for Jasper and Peridot are references to the memes for their names and what Vandels do to their pages on The Steven Universe Wiki.
- She is a Kindergarten Gem and stayed on Earth before being put into a Faction, which is why she knows the nicknames for Peridot and Jasper.
