Iolite is a reasonably tall and rather burly at 6'2". She is similar in build to Jasper and the non-defective Amethysts, (being as they serve quite similar purposes) however Iolite is not quite as tall or strong as Jasper.
She wears a similar uniform, however not as well kept, considering her relationship with the caste system on homeworld.
She has reasonably long spiky, greenish hair. She has light blue to purple skin, with a more solid color of blue and green on the uniform. The placement of her gem prevents it being cracked before she is poofed.
Personality: Iolite often rash and abrasive towards others, especially in an aggressive or hostile situation. However, when surrounded by those who she has no quarrel with, but does not know well, she can often be very quiet, refusing to open up about herself. When focused on something, she will put all effort in that direction, almost flat out ignoring everything else.
She will often try to act casual and laid back about her abnormalities, but this could not be further from the truth.
Approval, even by those she doesn't care about
Being around those she can trust (Not often)
Making fun of the flaws of others to distract from her own.
The diamond authority/ homeworld system
Food, will refuse to eat
Fears: Absolutely despises rejection, and will do anything to gain approval, even from the diamonds and homeworld itself, after being cast out.
Weapons: Katars, fast and sharp, she can duel wield them with one in each hand. These weapons are very good at poofing gems swiftly, however, they can harm a gemstone if needed
Ability 1: Stronger shapeshifting
Being a flanking soldier, Iolites have an extended array of shapeshifting techniques, they can change their hair and skin color, allowing them to pull off much more elaborate disguises. However, due to her gem location, Iolite, while making the fact that she is a gem less obvious, it also forces her to be mute.
The shapeshifting technics also allow her to blend into the environment. While it definitely isn't perfect, if you are in a dark room and don't know that she is there, chances are, you won't find her. This works well with a hiding in plain sight technique. This ability lasts as long as normal shapeshifting.
Ability 2: Shockwave
Iolite is able to create shockwaves in battle to either disorient the enemy or if strong enough, damage the foe. This ability has a 2-3 post cool down/ can't be used if injured or tired. It is quite powerful at close range, however, it gets exponentially weaker the further from Iolite you are. The maximum effective combat range is around 15 m (45 feet) With at the furthest distance causing painful migraines rather than bursting ear drums. However, even at double the distance, it could work well for communication.
The shockwave would do more damage to those in the air as the shockwave can't traverse to the ground. A relatively minor hit from the shockwave can temporarily deafen an enemy. (1 post for minor, 2 posts for major) and at close enough range (5 m, 15 feet) the enemy will be knocked back. This attack is especially effective in enclosed spaces, as the waves can bounce back off of the walls, albeit weaker.
This ability is done through Iolite building up tension in her body and releasing it, using this, she can use it in many different ways. She is able to store it in a body part and release it directly through contact. I.E storing it in her hand and pushing another gem while releasing the energy to send the gem flying. This has the same effect on Iolite as the latter, with the less powerful uses of it can be used after 2 posts or the stronger one of which take 3. This ability can also be used for example by pushing the energy through her foot sending her into the air.
Fusions: None on earth and of concern
Iolite gems are a swift soldier group specialized in flank attacks rather than front line. They are made to be around the hight of pear albeit more muscular. Due to the large amount of gem creation on homeworld, Iolite was one of the first to experience the consequences. The rock she was made in was not stable, causing her gem of which would have been on her chin to develop on her tongue. This caused the tongue to grow to an abnormal size.
This caused many problems. Iolite has a speech impairment, however, it isn't too noticeable when she sticks her tongue out. Most would likely not notice it if they couldn't see her speaking, as her body has adapted to speak that way.
However, hiding the tongue in her mouth stops her from speaking at all.
Fearing the consequences of being abnormal, she hid her tongue when in public, rarely speaking, and making little to no social connections. During a mission, she was made to tell an inspecting Agate of the current situation. Her attempts to hide her abnormality proved futile as she ended up blabbering and sticking her tongue out at a high ranking Agate. She was stripped of her status and pushed below the ranks of any pearl. Had she been in the presence of a diamond, she would have been shattered on the spot.
Eventually, she found herself around groups of other defect gems, outcasts from gem society. She stayed with them until she received the message from earth about the rebellion.
She decided she could redeem herself to homeworld by fighting against the rebels. As the warps were gone, she stole a high-tech military ship, as she knew the military base like the back of her hand, making the heist not very difficult for her.
Torn between getting revenge on homeworld and regaining their approval.
Comes to terms with her defect
