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


Connie is a young girl with dark brown puffy hair and glasses. 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. 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 party outfit is a yellowish-white mini cardigan, white top, black-gray leggings, and pink heels.


Connie has a nerdish/bookwormish personality. She is somewhat withdrawn, quiet, introverted, and intelligent. She is lonely and wishes she had more friends. Because she moves so often, she has been unable to make lasting friendships. 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-fats). All of her time spent on beaches has given her some knowledge of boats. Her hobbies appear to be tennis and reading. 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). She plays the violin, as seen in "Fusion Cuisine."



Steven first saw Connie about a year prior to the series during a parade. He saw her drop her bracelet, so he kept it in the freezer so he could return it. She also remembered seeing him on his father's float, mentioning the soap bubbles in his hair. He becomes her first friend and appears to have a crush on her. They are currently good friends. Although, they do nearly kiss in "An Indirect Kiss".

Mr. Maheswaran and Dr. Maheswaran

She is very loyal to her parents, who seem to want her to be smart, orderly and healthy. She closely follows their orders, but does occasionally exploit a loophole (as seen in "Lion 2: The Movie").

Episode Appearances


  • Connie appears in the title sequence as the "Mr. Universe" van drives by. She holds the book "A Wrinkle in Time".
  • The creators of the show were planning on having a character in the show that would be Steven's girlfriend. It may be possible that their final idea was Connie.

  • It is revealed in "Lion 2: The Movie" that Connie plays tennis.
  • According to writer Matt Burnett, Connie's race is Indian. [1]
  • Following the events of "An Indirect Kiss", Connie can now see normally without her glasses thanks to the healing powers in Steven's spit. However, in order not to agitate her parents and optometrist, she pops out the lenses of her glasses and puts them back on.
  • In Fusion Cuisine, it is revealed that Connie's last name is Maheswaran, and she is also shown to be a bit embarassed of Steven and the Crystal Gems.
  • Connie is the only character so far seen wearing a different outfit each episode she appears in.
