I want to Steven,- I want to be a part of your universe.
Connie is a young girl with waist-length, dark brown puffy hair, and lens-less glasses (after her eyes were healed by Steven in "An Indirect Kiss".) She's usually seen in a mint-green and white dress, along with a baby blue sash, and lime green socks, as well as salmon-colored boots. Unlike in the intro, where she wears a hat and has no socks. Her casual wear includes blue overalls with a green-striped white shirt; a green shirt and gray khaki shorts; white shirt which has a golden sun, with blue shorts and dark pink flats; pink shirt with blue shorts, and her boots; sleeveless periwinkle dress with a pale violet lace around her waist, and powder blue flats. For tennis practice, she wears the outfit she previously wore in "An Indirect Kiss" (the second casual outfit), along with a pale blue tennis visor and has her hair in a ponytail. Her formal outfit is a pale yellow mini cardigan, white top, black-gray leggings, and pink heels. Her snow wear is a pale blue coat with a thick white fur-collar, white mittens, and pale blue-colored version of her boots.
Connie has a reserved/bookwormish personality. She is withdrawn and introverted, as well as curious and intelligent. But because she moves so often, she has been unable to make lasting friendships and often feels lonely. It is heavily implied that her parents are somewhat controlling and disallow her from doing common childhood activities (such as eating donuts or anything with trans-fat). This has also led her to flat-out lie to her parents about Steven and his family, paranoid at how they may react, and tell them that they have a nuclear family. Despite obeying her parents consistently, she does exploit loopholes (such as not buying snacks at a theater, instead Steven supplying them with some at his home). Connie does seem to have grown used to the dynamic strangeness of her friend despite her initial uncertainty to it, as in "Marble Madness" when she barely reacts when the Gems destroy one of Peridot's robots in front of her, giving a spacy gaze and saying "[she] loves hanging out at [Steven's] place."
Connie can be a bit deadpan at times, such as when she jokes about cutting off Steven's hand in "Lion 2: The Movie" and in that same instance she quickly caught on that by poking/tickling Steven she could provoke a reaction from Rose's Training Cave. Her hobbies appear to include tennis and reading, she also plays the violin, as seen in "Fusion Cuisine."
Steven first saw Connie about a year prior to the start of the series during a parade. He saw her drop her bracelet, so he kept it in the freezer so he could return it one day. She also remembered seeing him on his father's float, mentioning the soap bubbles in his hair. He becomes her first friend, although Connie does sometimes feel like her life is rather mundane compared to Steven's. They are currently good friends. They share a mutual crush, as seen in "An Indirect Kiss" and "Alone Together". Steven at least was heavily implied to have a crush on her in "Open Book". It also implies she cares deeply for Steven, as she said she wants to be part of his universe in the episode, 'Full Disclosure'.
She is very loyal to her parents. While they tend to be strict, they want the best for her, and want her to be smart, orderly and healthy. She closely follows their orders, but does occasionally exploit loopholes or even lies to them to get away with something.
