Small note: If you have questions for her, feel free to ask! I'm just feeling her out for the moment.
The little gem stood in the center of... she wasn't even sure. Everything was pure white, the constant feeling of falling while grounded seemed to be everywhere. No direction, no dimensions, just complete nothingness. She closed her eyes and took a breath; she had no idea where she was, what was happening, or how she even got to this place.
Her mind felt blank, like as blank as this plane of existence.
"Hello."That voice seemed to come from everywhere, as if it formed in her mind and manifested itself to the outside. What's going on?
"Don't be alarmed, just relax and everything will be explained... soon enough."With an uneasy shrug she sat, cross legged, her head moving back and forth as if she could see where the voice was coming from if she tried hard enough.
"I simply have a few questions to ask you. Once we're done, your world will be right again."The child sized gem stopped fidgeting, mostly. Her eyes couldn't help but drift every so often, but that was the effect this place had on fresh beings sometimes.
"What is your full name?"She attempted to make her voice sound strong under all of the uncertainties but surrounding everything, and internally winced when it broke, allowing for another mistake, "My na-name is Calc- Caligo Calcite." She rubbed at her temple.
"Where and When were you born?"The voice didn't seem to care about her blunder, so she shrugged, "I was created on Earth, during one of the beta tests determining the planet's fertility."
"How do you feel about the fact that your species slowly destroys planets to create more of your kind?"Caligo didn't hesitate, "It's not my place to care. The planets would have died eventually, along with everything on it, so they may as well be of some use to Gem Kind."
"So there's no feeling of anger or pity for those worlds?""No, like I said, they would have dried up with or without Gem intervention eventually."
"Where do you live now, and with whom? Describe the place and the person/people."She sighed, irritation plain on her features, "I'm moved around from place to place, mostly used for political manipulations and to scope out trouble. I work under the military sect with a gems beneath Yellow Diamond, but I'm not allowed to give name to my primary owner."
"What is your occupation?""I'm a servant class gem, but with my skills being primarily useful in stealth and information gathering I'm used more for things of that nature."
"Do you have any allergies, diseases, or other physical weakness?"The little gem started to fidget, "Why?" An uncomfortable stretch of time passed until she conceded to the idea that she wasn't going to be spoken to unless she answered, "... I'm beyond incapable in direct combat for a multitude of reasons and I get extremely sick after ingesting any kind of acid. Including the ones found in Earth fruits, meats, and vegetables."[/b] She wrapped her arms around her middle and all expression on her face faded into a neutral mask.
"Are you right- or left-handed?"She raised her left hand "I'm sinistral."
"What do you have in your pockets?"I have a Log and a few minor repair drones." She empties her pockets to show a flat, rectangular item, the Log, and a handful strangely shaped insects. "Sadly they're pretty much useless with anything like a warp pad or interstellar communication devices"
"Do you have any quirks, strange mannerisms, annoying habits, or other defining characteristics?""I... don't think so." Searching her memory, she does sit awkwardly when she's not cross legged. She's usually either crouching or her hands are firmly planted on the ground when her feet are planted firmly on wherever she's sitting. In chairs she balances herself on her toes much too often.
Any time she's nervous or unsure her hands wrap around her midsection.
The fact that she never really changes her expression that often has also annoyed a good deal of people at one point or another.
"Yeah, I don't think so." Her eyes slid to another direction. Caligo did a double take, there was something over there; black and closing in. When she looked in every direction she could see a deep set blackness consuming the blank plane and closing in around her, "What is that!?"
She hopped to her feet, "Hey! Come back, help!" The darkness closed around her.
But nobody came.
