Appeared Gender: Male
Appeared Age: 16
Gemstone: Cubic Zirconia
Gemstone Location: Back of his hand
Height: As tall as Pearl
Can be far larger and much more intimidating, but after getting poofed for the first time, he changed his form into the smaller, more modest body he has here.
Personality: Zirconia never learned how to properly interact with people, which makes him slightly awkward and shy. He is also a little overly cautious and always feels unsafe if put into a situation he has never seen. He is intelligent, but rarely lets it show and isn't overly street smart. His cautious attitude doesn't work well with his intelligence either, as it usually works against him and causes him to over think things. He tries to be helpful if he can, but always gets different results depending on what he's helping out with. Sadly, his fighting style takes a few hits from his personality. He doesn't overly enjoy combat, but when put into a fighting scenario you can never really know what to expect. He doesn't like to get close to the opponent, but fights close range, so he tends to have a very awkward and unpredictable fighting style that can never truly be depended on. Zirconia used to be very different, but events from his past led him to be this way. If confronted about his past, he will change the subject or be incredibly vague.

Fears: His weapon, Getting poofed, Yellow Diamond, The Dark.
Ability 1: Drain Sword
-When in combat, his sword has the ability to slowly physically weaken opponents by draining their energy, this basically temporarily lowers an opponents endurance. The more someone comes in contact with the sword the worse it will get, but even then, the ability doesn't really show until a few minutes into battle (making it primarily effective in longer combat). This starts to come into effect as soon as someone interacts with Zirconia's sword, and a gem will begin recovering as soon as they have gone 1 minute without coming in contact with the sword. Also, a gem hit by the sword will recover from the energy drain twice as fast as it occured. The ability only works with his sword, and not with any other weapons he may use, therefore his ability is useless for now, since Zirconia is still incapable of summoning his weapon.
Ability 2: Gem Spikes
Zirconia can create large spikes from the ground by stabbing his sword into the floor, The spikes can be spread out into a bunch of smaller spikes, or can be one or two larger spikes. The spikes can only come out of the ground up to four metres away from Zirconia. Again, useless for now.
History: Cubic Zirconia was a special weapon that completely backfired. Yellow Diamond tried to create a gem with the attack power of a diamond to use as a weapon, an artificial diamond with limited knowledge that would serve the sole purpose of crippling those who got in their way. Unfortunately the plan never worked out. Cubic Zirconia was big, strong and a huge threat to whoever got in his path, but the plan was slowly getting very risky. Zirconia was getting smarter than Yellow Diamond would have liked, and quickly. Only weeks from the day he was created, he began questioning the reasoning behind the attack and failed to understand what the rebels were doing that was so horrible. After having an argument with Yellow Diamond, he realized that he was being lied to. He then decided to attack Yellow Diamond. The attack was expected, and many precautions were set out, hundreds of ranged gem warriors were teleported in to protect Yellow Diamond. The ranged units were very effective, Yellow Diamond had created Zirconia and knew all of his weaknesses like the back of her hand, but that didn't stop Zirconia from doing some serious damage first. Zirconia tore through many gems before being taken down by an arrow and plummeting toward the ocean of earth, where he was lost below the deep. Zirconia had emotionally snapped, his entire personality changed in a matter of seconds. When he regenerated on an island in the middle of nowhere, he dramatically changed his form to be less than half the size and far less intimidating. He was a completely different gem, he went from being a feared warrior to being timid and scared. Any time he tried to summon his sword, he would be reminded of his horrible actions and go through flashbacks of his past.
