|Current Residence||Crystal Temple|
|Latest Appearance||"Steven the Sword Fighter"|
Garnet is the tallest and most muscular member of the Crystal Gems. She has dark skin and curly black hair that is styled into a cube-shaped afro. She almost always/all the time wears futuristic shades that cover all three of her eyes (two where a human's eyes are and one in the middle of her forehead). She wears a black and red bodysuit with cube shoulder pads and a pink star on her chest. She also wears long black gloves. Her gemstones are garnets embedded in her palms.
PersonalityGarnet has a calm, stoic demeanor and rarely speaks more than a few words at a time. She has a British accent. She is the most in touch with the energy of the universe and uses this to summon her weapon. She is the most stable member and is a mentor to Steven.
All Gems have many powers, including the ability to summon a weapon and shapeshift. When Garnet activates her Gem, she summons her weapon, Gauntlets. She also appears to have psychokinetic abilities. In "Cheeseburger Backpack", it is stated that she is able to sense structural integrity. She can summon her shades at any time. According to Pearl, Garnet's ability to foresee emergency situations makes her the de-facto leader, and it seems this power is connected to her third eye - when Garnet was mesmerized by a computer game, it moved rapidly while her other eyes stared in the distance, and it closed when the game was shut down. In the episode Giant Woman she says she's the only one that can swim in lava
Steven respects Garnet as a leader and a responsible older sister figure. In return, Garnet tends to have more faith in Steven's plans and ideas than Amethyst and Pearl. She also protects him from their antics and bickering.
While Amethyst is seen to chafe at being told what to do, she will follow orders from Garnet. This shows that Amethyst respects Garnet's leadership abilities and judgment.
Like Amethyst and Steven, Pearl respects Garnet's leadership abilities. While she is occasionally patronizing and condescending to the other Gems, Pearl treats Garnet as an equal.
