I don't know what will happen in the future, but if something dangerous comes along, I don't want to be a burden, I want to help, I want to be there for Steven to fight by his side! The earth is my home too, can't I help protect it?

"Connie Maheswaran" is a character in Steven Universe. She is Steven's close friend. She made her debut in the episode "Bubble Buddies".

Appearance

Connie is a young girl with brown skin and waist-length dark brown puffy hair. She has a prominent nose, somewhat thick eyebrows and wears a pair of red lens-less glasses (after the events of "An Indirect Kiss"). She is slightly taller than Steven.

She's usually seen in a variety of different outfits and dresses. She usually wears light blue and white clothing. In the first intro, she is seen wearing a white and light green dress with her peach colored boots but with a hat and no socks. Her glasses also have the lenses still in. Her casual wear includes blue overalls with a green-striped white shirt; a green shirt and gray khaki shorts; a white shirt which has a golden sun, with blue shorts and dark pink flats; a pink shirt with blue shorts, and her boots; a sleeveless periwinkle dress with a pale violet lace around her waist, and powder blue flats.

Personality

Connie has a bookwormish personality, generally being withdrawn and introverted, as well as curious and intelligent. Due to her parents lifestyle, Connie rarely stays in one place for long and has been unable to form lasting friendships (until she met Steven), often feeling lonely. Her parents are very strict and don't allow her to participate in common childhood activities (such as eating donuts or anything with trans-fat), this has led her to flat-out lie about Steven's non-nuclear family, due to paranoia at how they may react. Despite her obedience to her parents, she is not above exploiting loopholes (such as not buying snacks at a theater and instead bringing them from Steven's home).

Connie has grown used to the strange dynamic of her friendship with Steven despite her initial uncertainty of it, as in "Marble Madness" when the Gems destroy one of Peridot's robots in front of her, she reacts passively and only comments that she loves hanging out at Steven's place. She 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 quickly understands that by poking/tickling Steven she could provoke a reaction from Rose's Secret Armory. Her hobbies appear to include tennis and reading, she also plays the violin, as seen in "Fusion Cuisine".

Relationships

Steven

Selfie's with Steven.

Steven first saw Connie about a year prior to the start of the series during a parade. He saw her drop her bracelet, and decided to keep it in his 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, and share a mutual crush as seen in "An Indirect Kiss" and "Alone Together". Connie has demonstrated that she cares deeply for Steven, such as in "Full Disclosure" when she repeatedly called and visited him to make sure he was okay, even going as far as to say she wanted to "be a part of his universe", and since  "Sworn to the Sword" Connie has shown interest in joining Steven in his adventures with the Gems, training with Pearl to defend him.

Connie being yelled at by her parents.

Connie 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. In the episode "We Need to Talk," Connie reveals that her parents do not know of her adventures with Steven. This may be because of her fear that her parents will prevent her from hanging out with Steven due to the danger she gets put in.

Crystal Gems

Connie is on good terms with the Crystal Gems. In "Bubble Buddies", they were excited to meet her. Pearl says in "Full Disclosure" that she doesn't understand human relationships when she is looking for Steven.

Pearl

Connie has not been shown to have any extended interaction with the Gems with the exception of Pearl, with whom she shares a mutually respectful mentor-student relationship with since "Sworn to the Sword".

Episode Appearances

Trivia

  • Connie’s surname, Maheswaran, means “Lord of the Universe” in Hindi and is also traditionally a Tamil surname. [1]
  • Connie appears in the title sequence as the "Mr. Universe" van drives by. She holds the book "A Wrinkle in Time".
    • In the second intro, Connie is shown wielding Rose's Sword and an unknown, large book with a bookmark inside.
  • She is able to write backwards. This is seen in the very short amount of time it took her to write "Harpoon Gun" on the inside of the bubble in "Bubble Buddies."
  • It is revealed in "Lion 2: The Movie" that Connie plays tennis.
  • According to writer Matt Burnett, Connie is of Indian heritage. [2]
  • Following the events of "An Indirect Kiss", Connie can now see normally without her glasses thanks to the healing powers in Steven's saliva. However, in order not to aggravate her parents and optometrist, she pops out the lenses of her glasses and puts the frames back on.
  • It is revealed in "Mirror Gem" that Connie plays violin.
  • In "Fusion Cuisine", it is revealed that Connie's last name is Maheswaran.
  • In "Alone Together", she fused with Steven to create Stevonnie.
    • She is also revealed to be embarrassed to dance in public.
    • She is the only known human who has successfully fused with a gem.
  • She lives out of Beach City, as shown in "Winter Forecast", when Mr. Maheswaran said: "I'm almost at Beach City, so start putting on your shoes."
  • In "Winter Forecast", Connie says "itadakimasu", a Japanese word said before eating. This implies that Connie knows a little bit of Japanese or is a fan of Japanese culture.
  • Steven is Connie's only friend as mentioned in "Bubble Buddies" when she said she was going to disappear without making a single friend.
  • She also said a similar phrase in "Full Disclosure", where after Steven texted her he didn't want to be friends anymore, she said that she'll just go back to having no friends.
  • Connie could probably reference King of the Hill's Connie, who is also Asian and smart.
  • Connie is the character to have worn the most outfits in the show, as she seems to wear something different every episode- contrasting the typical cartoon character that wears the same outfit every episode.
  • In "Sworn to the Sword", Connie's outfit and fighting style were inspired by Kalaripayattu.
    • A martial art originating as a style in Kerala, it is one of the oldest martial arts practiced in India. Northern Kalaripayattu is based on elegant and flexible movements, evasions, jumps and weapons training. Normally, Kalaripayattu can be started at the age of seven, when the body is not stiff and less vulnerable to damage. But it can be practiced at any age under the supervision of a well-experienced master, such as Pearl.
    • She wields a sword resembling the Khanda, a sword typically used in Kalaripayattu.
    • Her hairstyle is a braid typically worn by female Kalaripayattu practitioners.
