Lovering his head a little, while he rises Standing proud at the side of the Grand Inquisitor Truly an Honor And a good sign! If an Opalite is here, everything will be all right Then came the words Impossible words! A Spider should not talk like that!
"You are clearly... im sure you didn't mean like that what you just said Spider...!"
Morion was ready to defend the honor of the Opalite
"This is just this cursed rock's influence on your mind that speaking... "
The last thing Morion wants is to fight with a potential ally
"The humans? They are insignificant! Short lived, unimportant meatbags journeying toward their inevitable fate. Death. We are Gods among them... what they could do with us? Except worship... But they aren't even worth enslaving, or to becoming our pets! Thats what Pearls are for after all...
He nods a little tho
But... I tries to avoid them. For reasons... Thanks to the Diamonds we have met Spider Jasper! We have plenty of work to do! "
Demetry was a bit worried not being at the side of Lady Tabitha for the time; but, her orders are absolute and if a task needs her attention he knows better than to question. He quietly walked down the boardwalk wearing his mix of human clothes and light suite projections. Clearly a gem and an unusual one at that. Other gems could tell at a glance he was a jasper of some kind; but, his gem seemed modified. He would offer smile to the humans he passed in silent observation.
He would soon pass a grocer moving crates of goods from truck to stand. The mustachio'd fellow seemed to struggle some and Demetry waled over with a nod and spoke plain. His voice quite capable of drawing the eye of woman and men alike. "Good eve sir. Might I inquire if you need assistance in moving your wares. I am without task and would be most abided if I may assist."
the man blinked chuckling and wiping his hands across his large belly. "Some fancy get up ya got there kiddo... and sure.. iff'n ya don't mind then have at it. Just put the crates on the other pallet over yonder." Demetry blinked and looked at the other pallet and thought this was a tedium the man simply was making excessively difficult. He shrugged and walked over to the truck grasping the pallet there from it's sides and lifted it above his head with all it's wares still on it. As if nothing he walked it to the other pallet and began moving individual crates to the adjacent.
The man opened his mouth wide and seemed to be in a bit of shock and shook his head walking up to Demetry with a sweaty brow and nervous voice. "U...uh... th-that... ti.. lll do kid. I uhh... I got it from here. Than-thank you." Demetry blinked and nodded to the man. "Very well, may you sell many goods this day sir. Thank you for the momentary reprieve from my wandering." "Yeah... umm.. your welcome?"
Demetry continued down the boardwalk and saw a peculiar cluster of gems. It was not strange to see such a thing as the gem count on Earth was pretty substantial. His Lady Tabitha being one of the more note worthy in standing was always aware of other gems as was Demetry. True some at a glance would know his position as her retainer. Mostly because of the oddity that is his own personal gem. He instantly recognized one of them. He had seen him before as his lady and him have run in similar circles before. The Grand Inquisitor, Opalite. A rather pleasing man to witness and arguably just as much of a looker as himself... though in truth Demetry didn't much acknowledge his own visual appeal.
Either way Lady Tabitha had heard this man was on Earth and advised Demetry to be wary. Demetry stood in a sort of parade rest across the street to see if he was busy. It would be best to offer greetings in his Ladies stead. Or else his in action would be viewed as insult.

Mr. O figured it would be best to ignore her comment about his ego... even he couldn't deny how large it was! Quiet the ego to see really. "Did you have to scare the humans like that? I've been trying to not scare them. You could try too, since we are kinda stuck here." This did make sense... they weren't here to wage war on this planet.. yet at least. The trick with the web had zero effect on O, he was aware of the Spider Jaspers abilities... though he was happy to never have seen them bite a gem. While he was all the ready to shatter a gem with his own hand, something about BITING just kinda put him off.
"I'm honored your eminence..." His gaze returned quickly to the Morion before him, "You should be! Though for the sake of speed... we ARE on the field now so... no need to be so formal I suppose..." As much as he would enjoy this gem speaking to him like so the whole time, Spyder was indeed right about being stuck here for now... it would at some point grow tiring. As Morion spoke he could almost feel how Spyder would react, "I must say... you two are really two side to the same assassin coin! Quiet interesting darlings!" His cane came forward, being brought in front of him with both hands gripped over the top of the cane.
"Now.... about this work your planning to do? If I may ask... whats your primary target in the sector?" He spoke directly to Morion at this point, "I seem to have been a bit out of the loop with my time on this little planet!" He spoke out in a smooth tone, his voice still almost sounding as if it was coming from two moths in the same place.
Something about this situation seemed all too familiar. Reporting in to a superior, getting in trouble from a coworker due to her smart mouth. However, in this day and age... The Inquisitor had no power here. Other then the power to destroy them, but that was something else.
A slow even grin crossed her face, all of her many teeth and sharp fangs were now on display for both of the gentlegems to see. The sharp teeth were the spiders greatest weapon after all, might as well show them off.
Two hands on one hip, the other hands playing with her dreads. Twisting them around her wrist as the boys played on each others egos.
"Oh, come on. Don't tell me both of you are still batting for the Diamonds. They abandoned us." This was painfully true, just by taking a look around them that could made painfully clear. No Diamond was going to come this planet and whisk them away back to homeworld. As immortal creatures they had all the time in the world to wait for them.
Her green eyes turned and focused on Morion, "And the humans are... Weak compared to us. But some might say they are stronger in character. We could easily crush them, but where is the fun in that?"
No more titles Opalite already knows Morion's loyality and respect, so yeah, there is no need for the protocoll
"My mission was to watch. To prevent what happened. I have failed my Diamond.
It is... painfull to admit this. More so to an Opalite But he IS the Grand Inquisitor He already knows (well, according to Morion anyhow)
"Now it is my... our, all of the loyal Gems duty to set things right! Correct our mistakes. This includes the captureing and bubbleing, or if it needed, shattering the Rebels. Shattering is a last resort... while I have no problem to execute them and I'm sure, the Diamonds will order that eventually, it isn't my job to decide who lives and who dies. It is theirs."
Morion nods a little
"The Rebels have doomed this planet with their actions! The retribution will be... brutal. And I don't want to be among those who will need to answer to their Diamonds for their faliures. And crimes. Sooner or later they will arrive. The Diamonds will arrive! Eventually. This planet is a colony after all... always was and always will be! With precious resurces! And Yellow Diamond is as gracefull as a rockslide, when it comes to retribution. Legions of Rubie soldiers marching alongside the Quartz knights, Gem-powered warmachines, canons and vehicles, Peridots behind them to fix everything if needed... disgusting, but strong and feral Fusions... with our fleet, our ships blackening the sky... it will be glorious!"
With an embarrassed cought Morion lovered his hands^^ He got a little carried away And stares coldy the many armed Gem The Spider Jasper would be a worthy opponent Their fight would level this city^^ But her words... why she must be this stubborn? Stay calm... she is provoking you Morion! Humans and their strong character...
"Yeah... some might say that. And that someone would be wrong! I am not doing this for fun. I am a Morion, not a Spider Jesper. Fun is one thing. Efficiency is another."
Demetry listened from where he stood. The conversation was quite heated though, amicable. It was clear that the Spyder Jasper stood at an opposite view of the Morion. Demetry did not know the gems personally; however, he was familiar with their gem types. This conflict could easily escalate depending on the Opalite's viewpoint. Either way he did indeed seem busy; however, with what he witnessed to simply walk away would be a mistake to which it's gravity would be unknown to Demetry.
Demetry walked over moving from a formal stance to a casual and nodded graciously to the three gems present speaking in a sensible tone as if to distract from the heated conversation. "Greetings fellow gems, pardon my intrusion to this, most interesting conversation. I simply was making my way through the area when I could not help but overhear. I simply came to greet you Inquisitor Opalite in M'ladies stead. Though I think time for such things is unwarranted... I do hope there is a chance for conflict resolution between you Morion, and Spider Jasper."
Demetry spoke with the tone of a well versed knight of Homeworld. He carried himself with pride and his voice was most alluring to be heard. It had a Australian accent and a slight rasp to it. He would examine each gem individually and offered a gracious nod making this observation known to each. His palms were open and he seemed to have a fighters stare. It would be easy to imagine the physical prowess of this gem at a glance.

Opalite had watched closely as Morion spoke, he knew what he spoke of and was a bit surprised he was taking it so hardly. The failure was to all gems involved and not just him, in fact, "Morion... trust me when I saw you are not the blame for such a failure! The blame drops on all gems involved, all the same!" The more Morion went on... the more Opalite felt he was a very grim gem... so dreary and grave... what fun is this?!
"Oh, come on. Don't tell me both of you are still batting for the Diamonds. They abandoned us." O had been keeping an eye on the Spider Jasper while he spoke with Morion, it was having a hard time NOT doing so but anyways when she spoke it made him turn his head to her for a moment, "The Diamonds just use us, how we get used is still up to us, darling..." There was a bit of saltiness hidden away in his tone of voice. He himself just having an ordeal and maybe even a clash of faith with the Diamonds as a whole.
Another new gem seemed to join their little gathering? Oh the humans must be having a fit somewhere... most of what this new... quiet handsome gem spoke was polite and all but also got Mr. O's attention, "I simply came to greet you Inquisitor Opalite in M'ladies stead." O couldn't help but... well he couldn't possibly smile any more then he already was... but he wished he could! "Oh my.... such attention today! How lovely... its quiet ni-" He stopped a moment as he noticed this gem seemed... familiar.
"Wait a moment... I have seen you before... from Homeworld! Hmmm.... where is Lady Tabitha?" He turned to face this new gem, stepping away from the other two for a moment. He was wondering where this gems other half was... how he loved seeing the two together in the court. Such a cute couple... he always admired that, though he would never say it.
By the Diamonds... ANOTHER one? Spider had to swallow the groan that was building in the back of her throat. She was losing herself amidst all this homeworld smugness.
Her eyes closed for a second as she rubbed the bridge of her nose, she had to keep herself together... Spider didn't want conflict, so perhaps... She should change her tone a bit. She didn't want to start a fight, not by any means, but she didn't have to call out these gems either. Everyone was entitled to feel whatever they wanted.
"Perhaps it would be more efficient to just... Blend in?" Spider kept her words calm as she addressed the Morion. "Prey tends to run away if you look like a demon. But, lets be civil. We can talk about our kills later."
Red eyes zeroed in on the newest gem now. So... Bright! So yellow! Would stand out no matter the situation. She smiled a little bit at the new gem, keeping her lips pressed enough to hide the fangs now. She didn't want to scare this one for some reason. "Please, just call me Spider."
They are in the middle of the spider's web... Or simply the Opalite strong personality attracts the others After all, the Gems are without their Diamonds and Opalite is like a beacon in the darkness They are caste-based beings, without a leader, they are lost, confused It is hard to admit, but its true... Deep down Morion knows, he is a sword, and a sword needs to be wielded
Opalites words are felt like an absolution They have calmed down the Smoky Quartz's inner storm Enough to reply to Spider with a calm, reasonable voice
"I am blending in... to the shadows. The darkness. My mission was to watch, not to infiltrate this time! The humans are... strange creatures, I don't really think i could impersonate one. And they are not my preys... the Rebels are! To them, I AM... and you are too, a Demon. But they will not see us coming. And as I said, shattering is... not necesarry. If a Rebel surenders, then there is no sense to kill her. We are not... Humans after all. We are Gems."
Morion always tought himself as a civilized Predator. Then the new Gem comes
"You looks familiar..."
Narrowed silver eyes watches the new Jasper Then Opalite helps He nods, then looks to Spider
"I am Morion... and... I think we have settled our differences with Spider.
"It is nice to meet you... and yeah, where is your Lady? This Planet is dangerous! In several ways, but the most dire danger is the insane Gems! there are Rebels everywhere! They surley would like to capture her! She is a potentate, influental court member! She could be in grave danger! If I were a Rebel, after the sabotage and destruction... my first deed would be to capture some renowed Homeworld Gem and... make an example."
Demetry smiled a bit as he is recognized by the Opalite. When he asked of his lady he paused to wonder how best to answer. During this brief pause it would seem the Morion also figured out his connection to Lady Tabitha whether through his own means or the realization of Opalite was inconsequential. The Morion seemed to also have spoken on his outlook of rebels and his relation to them. He wasn't wrong... though perhaps wholly grim in perspective. The multi limed Spider Jasper also took the moment to introduce herself in a pleasant way. If not for her gem relation to his own he may just confuse her for a fusion; regardless, he decided to begin there as to not be rude. It was also far simpler than answering questions.
"Spider it is then fair lady. I will remember it forth with. I do appreciate the warm greetings despite our possible differences in view points. I admire yours and Morion's capacity for civility in such times." he offers a light bow of the head to Spider as a gesture of courtesy. His voice carrying like a gentleman. He would offer more, or perhaps inquire something; however, he first must answer the others.
"It is a pleasure Morion. I am humbled that both you and High Inquisitor Opalite recognize me. To answer your query M'lady Musgravite is currently contemplating her next move in this, a most unusual circumstance for gem kind. Since the fall of the kindergarten her priorities are a bit divided and needed to sequester herself." he pauses a moment and looks to Morion with a half smile.
"I do appreciate your concern Morion; however, I assure I am always in contact with M'lady and she is far from danger. I have been her loyal retainer for some time now and though I find the rebels most... hmmm reasonable in demeanor in their betrayal, and actions like those you mention are not wholly impossible. They are still yet unlikely." he seems satisfied with that response having learned much from his lady. His means of speaking vastly improved from his time on Homeworld.
"I do say however, it is a pleasure meeting you all. And I am honored to be regaled by your impeccable fashion and way Inquisitor Opalite." Demetry looks over to Spider and offers her a smile and now speaks directly to her. "If I may be so bold, it is rare for myself to see your type of gem Ms. Spider. As a fellow variant of Jasper I find your visage quite lovely. Please do not feel obligated to limit thyself on my account. I wholly welcome all that you are... despite any qualms you may have with me. As assuredly so would my Lady."
Zircon was further down on the beach, sitting near the water, and just staring out at the ocean. Earth's oceans were calming. The look and sound of the waves hitting the shore, the sun shining off the water. No wonder humans made vehicles to travel on the water. He was surprised that this area wasn't crowded with humans, like he had seen some days, especially since this was such a nice spot. The sun shone off of his limb enhancers. His hair was kind of frayed, and messy. The same with his Homeworld uniform. He didn't know what to replace his uniform with, so he had kept it on. The sun also shone off of his visor, but he had no glare inside. He was just kind of relaxing.

Opalite just kind of... watched and waited as everything played out before him. Morion and Spider seemed to have resolved their little scrap, which meant O didn't have to step in to stop anything... or step back and watch them fight it out! That would have been pretty entertaining. Though his attention was brought to the Jasper from before, he tells both him and Morion that his Lady was indeed fine. This of course was good to hear, though now he couldn't help but question if he had spent too much time here... gems are gathering and he would rather not be around if a fight were to break out... not now anyways.
"-And I am honored to be regaled by your impeccable fashion and way Inquisitor Opalite." This brought O back to the conversation quiet quickly, "Oh-hoho! Its good to see some gems still have an eye for such thing!" He cocked out one hip with his hand still placed on it, his free hand gripping onto his cane. Looking around the gems as he spoke... he realized the perfect moment and took a few swift steps back, vanishing in the blink of an eye threw the blue blur. He had stepped back into his rift dimension as he turned and began to make his way back towards the city... he would have to move past the city to make it to his goal.
"Bye, bye darlings! Until we meet again! Oh-hohohoho!" His voice rang out from his pocket dimension, giving a quick farewell to the gems about.
"Oh, good! Everyone is leaving, or joining this little chat." Spider grumbled something under her breath before turning to her two palm trees. She inspected them carefully before she started shooting out string from her gem. A process she was most familiar with, she was making her hammock again.
"Differences aren't settled, new friends made, other weirdos to make mad..." With a free hand she pinched the rim of her nose and shook her head. All these different gems standing around in a circle talking was starting to wear her down.
She waved another hand at the gems behind her, "Yeah, yeah... I'm a demon. And I embrace it, I plan on using my demon like abilities for the greater good of a planet that can't defend itself against bullies."
Right now, it felt like she was a bully but at the same time Spider had done nothing terribly wrong. She hadn't killed anyone here yet and it was going to stay this way. Maybe later she could connect with gems later, but right now she wanted her sleep.
Once her hammock was done, Spider jumped back in and laid down. Let them talk around her, say whatever terrible things they wanted about rebels and shattering gems. She was going to be... Somewhat cautious.
Morion nods to the words of the Jasper She is His Lady, so he must know those thing he spokes of "If your Lady needs any help... we are here"
The Grand Inquisitor is leaving? Sad, but meeting with him was invigoríting! He takes a deep bow
"Good bye your Excellency... "
With a little sad sigh he whatches as the Opalite departs
"Hmm? It is not so bad to be a demon Spider. In the other's eyes of curse, and those eyes usually belongs to those who have done someting wrong. It is not our fault they needs to be punished! Greater good of a planet...?"
"Interesting expression. What could be greater for a Planet than to be part of our glorious Empire?"
Morion watched as the Spider climbed in to her webs Then turns to Demetry
"She is a little grumpy... meeting with the Grand Inquisitor and all. I think we had a rough start. We have different views about the Rebels and Humans. And overall the whole situation... but I hope she will realize eventually, her place is on our side, to make things right! This reminds me... I would like to ask an audience with your Lady!"
Demetry smiles from mild bemusement as Opalite departs. Though in his heart he knew this gentleman would be a major concern of his in the coming days. His ability was one that could seriously hamper his ladies desires. Though no sign of it occurring in the near future was evident... he was not looking forward to the prospect of fighting such a uniquely talent individual.
Watching Spider almost dismiss the situation in it's entirety was a bit sad, there was more he wished to say to her; but, now was not the time. Unfortunately this situation was oh to common. He hopped she would find solace and comfort on Earth; but, with Morion here he had a role to fill. He looks to Morion after he speaks and tilts his head slight.
"Such things can possibly be arranged for the future; but, may I ask what need does an assassin has to see M'lady Musgravite? I do not mean to sound as if I am belittling your task... far from it. I simply must inquire to ones intentions before I bring such things to my lady for... consideration. She is... a unique woman... to be sure." unique in that even he had a hard time predicting her. He all ready felt the on comming headache
Melody: as usual, just waiting for posts

This Roleplay is a prequel to Steven Universe to an extent with some slight retconing and its own progression to the story that will turn out differently to how stuff plays out in the show.Thanks to the message by Rose Quartz several gems are rising up to protect Earth and have labelled themselves as the Crystal Gems. Others on earth are remaining aligned to Homeworld though despite the isolation of Earth from Homeworld
All gems on earth are still stranded, the communication hub is still offline and all the space warps are shattered, it has now been revealed that this is the work of Rose Quartz and her small group known as the Crystal gems. They have rebelled against Homeworld and have chosen to protect the Earth (Trapping themselves on Homeworld to keep the warps down).
Now both sides are fighting among themselves along with fighting against the 'Corruption' a virus is infecting many gems turning most of them into mindless monsters, but those with a stronger will seem to becoming something more sinister.
The Game has changed now. The question has finally been posed, are you against Homeworld or allied with them. Or do you have your own agenda that may or may not been assisted by the ‘Corruption’. Regardless the seeds have been placed down and although it is only the beginning the fight for or against Earth and the corruption has begun. The choice is yours for how it is shaped on the Original Steven Universe Roleplay Site.
Orginal Opening Plot Here Thread That Changed Everything
Differances Between the Roleplay and the Show
*Thanks to Rose Quartz' message the Gems on Earth are entirely aware that the Homeworld Gems intend to wipe out the human race.
*The "corruption" is being treated like a virus due to lack of info about it on the show.
*Garnet, Pearl and Rose are assumed capture on Homeworld
*Garnet,Pearl and Rose broke the space warps to delay Homeworld
*Thanks to Roses Message gems now know what the Kindergarten was used for
