Name: Blue Tourmaline
Gender (preferred pronouns since gems have no gender): "he", "him", and "his"
Age:20,000 (looks about 20 years old)
Likes:the Chicago mafia, rag time music, formal attire, 20's-50's (human) culture, being treated as an equal.
Dislikes:being treated like you are above him, total isolation, feeling like he is nothing more then a mistake, Homeworld.
companions: Steven, Garnet (the one whom he valuse as a true friend), the other crystal gems.
n Homeworld he and his kind were manufactured as guards and snipers. But since he didn't know how to activate his weapon and his looked different (like a male instead of a female body and thought process) from the other gems of his kind, his very existence was seen as a joke. Soon enough he had it and left Homeworld with Rose and became a crystal gem. But even then he didn't feel like he belonged (hence why he doesn't have a star on his clothes like the other gems).
For a while he couldn't help since he couldn't activate his weapon. Until the 1920's, he went to Chicago via warp pad, he than was introduced to the mafia culture, and he loved it. The speakeasies, the lingo, and the music he was spellbound by all of it! He was so amazed by it all he finally got to activate his weapon.
He soon met a man, one he soon considered a close and mutual friend by the name of Scarface, he took Tourmaline in, and treated him as an equal. Not like as an object like on Homeworld, or a drag like he felt the gems saw him as. Soon enough Tourmaline helped the mob but still abided the law, and most important to his life, his new friend, Scarface helped him learn to operate his newly acquired weapon...the tommy gun. Tourmaline now speaks like a natural Chicago mobster and is one of the best sharp shooters out there, thanks to his long lost friend, Al Capone. Tourmaline also relates to Steven, since he's seen how humans act during his time with the mob and in Chicago.
