Homeworld, what a grand and wonders place to be. Everything around here was perfect. Every Gem had a job, every job had a purpose, and those who disagreed were placed away…yet, today was different for Achroite. He had been called to arms to find the terrorists who had brought up their might against the HomeWorld.
His armored plating clacked against the smooth serves of the ground under him. His cloak which dawned around his shoulders flapped with the speed of movement he had, the hood over his eye had a dull white glow from his left side. Shining his own gem by the gems crowding the streets he pushed himself through. Chatter was all around as the call of the gem to bring others to their cause had shook the Diamond Order, causing a massive hunt for those called the Crystal Gems. Achroite had heard the message himself. It was nothing truly of importance but he had felt a burning anger within his very being. Who could betray the Diamonds in such way? He couldn’t wrap his mind around such a cause. – Zoned out in his thoughts he bumped into a gem passing by, he lifted up his hand and muttered a low sorry. Carefully he tucked his wings close to his back as he pressed through an archway.
Before him was the long bridge that lead to the warp-pads. Curling a smile across his face he covered his whole body with his white cloak and finally made the walk across the bridge. His armor shimmered and shined as the small bits of the sun(s) glinted down with his cloak shifted with each step. Yet the warm sun(s) had vanished while he stood in the doorway. The doorway alone was grand, taller than even the Diamonds for easy access to their part. Standing at 7 feet tall, he peered up to look at where the arc-wary ended. The long shadow spread across the bridge now. He found himself in an awe struck state before slowly he started to walk into the dark abyss that laid before him.
The darkness soon slipped away into the dull glows of the warp-pads that laid all around the room in a circle formation. His single eye scanned the room until he had found the one based on the planet earth, if he recalled correctly it was were the diamonds had set up a new Kindergarten. The thought of that sent a shutter down his spine. He never liked those places. Always seemed to have something hiding away at each and every corner. The ones that were finished had been the worst sites to see. So many of those holes. He shook his head and let out a long sigh. Those thoughts had to be pushed aside. As if he was gliding along his hand pressed against the central control to access the coordinates. He punched in the only codes he knew to the Sea-Spire. The screen gave a loud beep while the warp-pad to his right started to glow. This was it, were he left for his mission. Finding the ones who had been so foolish to fight against the diamond order, his steps lead to the pad. The bright white light shimmered engulfing his whole body with a shimmer.
Crashing of the gentle waves was the first thing he heard as he all but stumbled off the pad, his hand clinging to his chest while a heavy breath slipped from his lips. Such distances was never good on his poor body. His legs felt like jello as he took his first steps across the smooth ground under his feet once more. He fell forward but his arms out shot and clung to the control table. Less then graceful he pulled himself up gathering himself to the area he now stood. The pillars that dawned over loomed in the moonlight. Bouncing off the shimmering water which gave the whole area a small silver hue. Finally he was on Earth. His mission was to begin.
