The Smoky Quartz bowed a little before the other Gem, after coming out from his shadowy hiding spot He was in a tuxedo with a cane, without any mask. He was a tall ('Quartz tall^^) Gem (but not bulky like a Jasper or Amethyst, his kind was slender) with long grey hair and silver eyes. It was evident, he was wearing real, human clothes, it wasn't his projection, since the shirt and vest hided his Gem. His skin tone was a bit grey...ish, like the smoke, but he could pass as a caucasian man.
"As I said before, I am a Smoky Quartz, from the Morion variant... it is a real pleasure to meet you. Nice little drones you have there! The last Gem that had this sophisticated Gem technology in the form of some Enhancers sadly was gunned down by my humans... she was a Peridot, Yellow Peridot, but alas, she was just another failed Experiment... she had this other personality inside her, Rubellite. A real shame, really, but my Diamonds do not tolerate any monsters that they can't control..."
He smiled, resting his hands on his cane
"I hope you are friendlier than that insane monster... It would be a nice change to meet someone resonable"

"Oh please, I'm no monster. I do what i must for Homeworld" Obsidian gave a small nod to the Morion. "A yellow Peridot that controls a monster inside of her? Sounds something a second rate scientist from homeworld would try." Obsidian could only chuckle at the thought. "Nevertheless, she sounds no threat to me." Obsidian waved her hand over her saturn rings (the dress) both Yellow and White Diamond symbols appeared, showing him which Diamond she works for. "Just to confirm that i am part of the Diamonds." She hinted that if Morion could do the same to assure this wasn't a trick of some sort.
"Now tell me, what do you seek of me?" Obsidian had asked, raising a brow at the figure at gem
"Actually this is the problem! She do not control the Monster inside her. She can't... There is another Experiment. A Bloodstone Jasper. He is a dual Gem too. When he is in his male persona, he calls himself Octavian. When in the female persona, calls hersel Octavia. Bloodstone is a Quartz soldier... and he have this "Berserker mode". He can turn on and off this state of minde like a switch."
The Smoky Quartz explained
"Yellow Peridot is clearly a failed experiment... while Bloodstone was a bit more successful. They are somewhat similar, but instead being an uncontrollable, insane Monster, Bloodstone is more... well, san...er. I think Earth was a testig ground for Experiments! Yellow Peridot, Bloodstone Jasper, Carbide..."
Morion shook his head
"Yes, I think you are right, a second rate scientist... and yes, I doubt she is threat to you. "
He admited, then followed the other Gem's example, he was from Blue Diamon's Court, with part time White^^
"From you? Nothing... my Humans detected your ship, your cloacking device damaged I presume, so I came to investigate... and maybe to find a Homeworld Loyal Gem. Everything else is an Extra. And you my friend? You forgot to introduce yourself M'lady..."

"Ah yes, my name is Obsidian, Elite ranking scientist." she told him, giving a small aura of profoundness on her title. "Hmph, another gem with a "monster" inside?" Obsidian chuckled, hearing the rest of bloodstone story, she bare to hear the rest as she began to laugh.
" You call that a accomplishment?! She sounds like a total waste of time and a failed experiment! Changing genders? Oh my Diamonds that's too funny!" The Elite scientist laughed more, slapping herself on the knee. "Please, even though she can "power" up, she sounds no threat either, all i have to do is gain data from them and it'll be easy to counter-attack them. This... octivian...sounds like a sensitive fellow, i bet if you use your mind, you can easily beat her." Obsidian laugh was cut short. "Carbide...Did you say...Carbide?" Now this had piqued Obsidian interest.
The Smoky Quartz bowed again, with a bit lower this time
"...If may I ask, where are your Quartz bodyguards and their subordinate dumb Ruby squads? You should be protected in these dire times Lady Obsidian! You are a scientist, and like Peridots, your knowledge potentially could be a tide turner in this War! These toys are cute, but if those Diamond-cursed Rebels would try to hurt you, or gem-nap you, are they enough to defend you m'lady?"
Morion was concerned
"I am not a scientist Lady Obsidian, forgive my ignorance... for me, if someone could willingly enter in a Berserker mindestate, and fight with clear mind, harnessing the power inside him, thats a feat I can't ignore!"
Then the Assassin smiled
"You are right M'lady... Bloodstone is sensitive. And easy to manipulate, sadly his companion, a Blue Zoisite, codname: Hunter, a planetary scout with a crashed ship is always around him, protecting the Bloodstone. They are poisoning eachother's mind with rebelious ideas... But at the moment, they are "Independent"
"Carbide, a Scout Quartz-experiment. Had the pleasure to meet her, and her guardian angel, Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite. You know them?

"I've ran into them a couple of times...Too me, those two seem to be rather strange for my taste.." She said, not giving out any information of her confrontation with Mr. O and his lackeys. "So you're saying that these two runts are simply going around together, thinking, they are anything special for what they were made for!?" Obsidian blurted out laughing once again. "Oh my, being on this planet is rather poisonous, who knew that simply landing here could make you stupid!" She blurted out, laughing uncontrollably.
"I'll tell you what." Obsidian interrupted Morion "Provide me some data or some visual information and i will find a way to take them down without you or me getting hurt." She slowly waved one of her automatons over to Morion. "All i have to do is scan the data from them and think of a plan, which will be easy for me." Obsidian chuckled. "BUT in return i ask of you, a partnership, When i need someone to rely on, I hope that you can be there for me. After all, I am being attacked at every angle by those rebels.." She sighed. "Those rebels are the reason why i am here in this island in the first place, they attacked me while i landed here AND blew up my ship! Savages!"
"So you're saying that these two runts are simply going around together, thinking, they are anything special for what they were made for!?" "Basically? Yes..."
The well dressed Smoky Quartz nodded
"Oh my, being on this planet is rather poisonous, who knew that simply landing here could make you stupid!" "I must admit, I have suspected sometin like this... about the Planet. It is... toxic to the mind. Maybe Earth is testing ground, hence the experimental Gems all around the place... and the "Corruption". Vivisected some of the so called corrupted Gem Monsters, carefully not to poof them, before it needed, and I am certain, Corruption is some kind of "Biological Weapon". Or it was planned to be one, before Rose Quartz's sabotage... and the half finished weapon spreaded on Earth. We are strong Gems, but the weak ones? They were infected and become monsters. It is a fitting design for Yellow Diamond to be honest... immagine a weapon that could turn even a worthless Pearl to a destructive Monster. Some of them even have some level of self preservation, but most of them are just engines of destructions, like those disgusting Abominations... the Fusions
Morion covered his mouth with a handkerchief with disgust, but then puted away it
"BUT in return i ask of you, a partnership.. "A partnership..."
The Assassin nodded
"I think it could be mutually benefical... I have several porjects, the restoration of the Derelict, my ship... or the Meta-Human project of mine... and could use the expertise of a great, if not the greatest Gem scientist Lady Obsidian"

She bowed back respectfully, her smile not fading away, hearing the projects that the Morion said could only bring more happiness to her. " Meta-Human project? That sounds interesting." she purred, getting up from her bow. "I too, have projects i wish to work with another fellow gem." With a wave of her hand crossing over her rings, making the Diamond symbols disappear with a single motion of her hand. " I have many projects that i couldn't finish in Homeworld due to ...resources slowly slipping away into depletion."
"Finally a gem who works for Homeworld and understand Homeworld science! Maybe this gem could be more beneficial than sugar.." a sinister smile had grown in her mind but was still able to show her normal smile in front of the Morion.
"The Meta-Human project is the part of Porject M. I have several projects... the Meta-Human is about, how should I say it...? I think the best world for is is "upgrade". Upgrading my Human servants. Not all of them naturally, just the perfect specimens! It would be a waste of time, energy and resources, and these things are rare and valuable things! Wasting them on an imperfect subject would be idiotic!"
The Smoky Quartz nodded, restinghis hands on his cane
"I have managed to gain the alligance of several humans, mostly criminals by human standards, but their skills are quite useful! Not to mention their connections and money. I had the misfortune to meet some irritating Gems, Rebels and "heroes" and depressingly few Gems who were loyal to our Empire. Actually, you are the first one. Realized, I need some manpower, forgive the pun, to survive this War against the Rebels and Independent traitors... and while hunting them down one by one IS fun, the "loyalists" needs footsoldiers. Humans with their weapons are effective, thats true, but they are just "rubies", if you know what I mean. Dumb and expendable. So decieded to do a little research, some experiments, and managed to make three prototypes of these meta-Humans. If I may...?"
He asked, and pulled out a little human device from his suit
"I am not a Peridot, but the humans are crafty! As I said, I have three prototype, ready for a test run! Gem and human techonolgy, empowered by Gem-shards! Living metal encasing dying flesh... They are not perfect you see, still have a hell of a lot of work before us! But...
The smoky Quartz showed her on the monitor It was a nice laboratory, generators, computers, a couple of scientist in white labcoats, aka. "human Peridots". And three chambers, with wires, conduits, life support, sensors and... with three sleeping (or at least not yet activated)... meta-humans
The Smoky Quartz looked them with almost fatherly proud, but then closed the little laptop and puted it away
"Anyhow, they are nothing compared to your drones and technology Lady Obsidian... If you are familiar with the human communication methonds, I could give you my "number". That is a series of numbers, like a personal frequency so you could reach me with a human communicator, called cell phone."
Post by The Scientist, Obsidian on Aug 23, 2016 17:44:12 GMT
With the pictures alone was enough for Obsidian to even considering pointing this assassin as a scientist under her command, he had the vision, the motive, and most important of them all, The will.
The meta human project brought a smile to her face, the new possible data she can get from this was more than enough to even change the battlefield to her advantage, new possible drones could even branch off from the meta human project, the possibilities were endless now with another scientist working with her, as the humans would say, two heads... are better than one.
"A cell phone? pffftt, that tracked human method that even the 'government' are listening on? Oh Morion, here i'll give you this." She handed over her data-pad, which was connected to all of her spare data-pads she had stored in each ship...well one of those ships. "But i'll take your number anyway and i'll find a way to make our...connection more private from eavesdroppers."
The Smoky Quartz nodded after he saw the smile one Lady Obsidian's face "I am glad, you like it... this is just one of my projects, I have several. And gladly share my results and data with you Lady Obsidian. I am just an Assassin... well, actually Infiltrator, so I'm familiar with several things to blend in better... but not a scientist like you M'lady. I am sure, you could use these data about the Meta-Human project far more better than me or any human on Earth. The other of my "pet Projects" is the Archangel Network. Noticed these filthy humans, these primitive vermins have several devices orbiting the planet, just to use them for communication and predict the future weather. And lesser degree, for scientific purposes. But I think we could use them, or built our own network, for a more... specific reason. Sadly I am not a scientist so don't know this would even work, but If we could build a Gem Destabilizer in these satelites, we could cover the whole Planet, no Crystal Gem would be safe... global waves or focused shots to a certain area... but as I said, this is just theory..."
"Ah.. Thank you. Finaly some state of the art Gem tech... "

Obsidian smiled back. "Now I am going to send you some of my files for safekeeping, after all i am being hunted down as we speak and i am producing new troops for me to rely on. Nevertheless, If i were to be captured by these...rebels, A special associate of mine will seek you and will be wanting those files that i sent you, activated." she stated, her voice retreating back to more of a serious tone. "Now i wouldn't mind as well if you helped as well in the event of me being rescued. Right, partner?" She extended her hand out towards Morion, gesturing a simple human tradition of "sealing a deal".
"If you need anything, don't be afraid to call me."
"I will prfotect your knowledge with my life Lady Obsidian"
The Smoky Quartz bowed "It would be wise M'lady to fake your death... to lose your persecutors."
Then he nodded "Understand. When your special associate will arrive, I will give him or her your files Lady Obsidian. I will help you, naturally. Or rescue you if necessary... by the way, who are these imbeciles who dares to hunt you Lady Obsidian? Do you know them by name? Anything that could help against them? Or help to preapre to the fight with them?"
But while that was an important information, not essential; just a great help
"I will contact you M'lady... But an infiltrator and Assassin I have learned to work alone... but I appreciate your kind offer Lady Obsidian... I am sure we will meet again. May the Diamonds be with you!"
The Assassin bowed, then warped away; he understanded the Scientist Lady was in a hurry^^

Obsidian chuckled, managing to contain herself from laughing out loud. "Another helper? Clearly i am on a roll this month!" She laughed mentally. She started heading back to her ship, where the stelleria drones were still being made inside of her ship, the automatons that were floating by her side continued to followed her and protect her from any wildlife that could be roaming around in this island.
It was only after a couple of minutes for Obsidian to reach her ship, which was still hovering inches from the sandy beach. Obsidian waved to the pearl who was still piloting it. The pearl noticed the wave and landed the ship back down, relieved that she didn't have to leave and form some kind of plan for Obsidian
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
