And in the middle of the city, its Gem Lord and Protector's base
The M Tower - as some Gems called it
A giant skyscraper, glass and steel "human Spire", a bit upgraded with scavanged Gem tech, and a stollen Warp Pad in its great hall
The Smoky Quartz's home and base
And the residency of several Gems
The Smoky Quartz, the Morion
The Fire Opal, "Chip", the Eternal Flame, the Rising Phoenix
The Spider Web Jasper, Spider
The Herald of Pink Diamond, the Fusion Gaspeite
Tho' she not lived inside the building, but Black Star Diopside, the Gem Bounty Hunter sometimes parked her cloaced ship next to the skyscraper...
It wasn't their home, but Morion provided and reserved rooms/homes for Gems like Morganite, Lady Chyrsocolla, Bloodstone, Obsidian (with a shovel^^),; Amber; Carbide and even Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite!
The M Tower was a big building, with plenty of empty rooms... it was a small price for the City's safety that the Smoky Quartz provided; he protected Empire city from Humans, Rebels and Monsters alike... and it was the center of his web of influance (and the beating black heart of his criminal empire)
And the home of lots of humans.
The security was tight (the usual thugs in shades and suits, headsets, patrolling in pairs) and not-so-hidden cameras watched the corridors
The guards were armed... columbian and Jamaican thugs
It was a mini-Spire, well guarded fortress
But a luxurious home in the same time...
Before the building there was a huge crater, and in it a huge black monolith with golden names. A lot of names...
The victims of the Crystal Gem villain Heliotorpe, the Crimson Death's rampage... a sad monument.
Morion was on the top, on the great balcony; in his humanoid form, but not Gem "armor"
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, - black silk suit - Italian with maching shoes - shirt, tie and cane. - 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. One hand rested on his cane, in the other was a glass of whisky.
The Smoky Quartz watched his city from the balcony, deep in his thoughts
