That was Rainbow Quartz. Pearl thought a fusion might give your video a little... something extra.

Rose Quartz, "We Need to Talk"

Rainbow Quartz is the fusion of Rose Quartz and Pearl. She made her debut in the episode "We Need to Talk".

Appearance

Rainbow Quartz has multi-colored voluminous hair which appears to be a mix of Pearl's and Rose's hair. It is long, large, and wavy like Rose's, while each tuft ends in a distinctive point like Pearl's. While her palette is unknown due to the tinted lighting present in her most notable appearance, in concept art her palette depicts her having a lavender complexion with blonde or pink hair.

She possesses only a single pair of arms, and is slender and curvaceous with a tall stature, standing a few inches taller than Opal. Rainbow Quartz possesses two pairs of eyes; the top pair of eyes are larger and more rounded and colored a pale indigo, whereas the bottom pair are thinner and more shapely with black pupils. Her nose is shapely and pointed like Pearl's nose, but short with discernible nostrils like Rose's. She also has defined lips that are similar to Rose's, although Rainbow Quartz's lips lack the sheen of Rose's. Her facial structure resembles Pink Diamond's.

Rainbow Quartz wears a sleeveless, skin-tight pinkish-peach strapless leotard with violet high-leggings. There is a stylized, downward-pointing, arrowhead-shaped cut-out on the stomach area of the leotard where Rose's gemstone is. She also wears a loose, sheer, translucent long-sleeved, bright, pastel-blue blouse with thin lime-green outlines over her upper body. Her outfit includes no footwear, but instead has long, magenta legwarmers that cover half of her lower legs and feet.

History

"We Need to Talk"

Rainbow Quartz Reveal

Rainbow after being formed.

Rainbow first appeared while Rose, Garnet, Amethyst and Greg were filming a music video for his song "What Can I Do (For You)". During Greg's guitar solo, Pearl walks up to Rose and convinces her to fuse. After fusing and meeting Greg, Rainbow performed a couple of dance moves for the music video, all while Greg watches in amazement and disbelief.

We need to talk Rainbow Quartz Defusing

Rainbow's defusion.

Moments before defusing, Rainbow gave Greg a malicious look, most likely coming from Pearl, followed by her performing one last move before defusing back into Rose and Pearl. When the video ends, Rose introduces Rainbow Quartz to Greg, as well as the idea of fusion, as Pearl had suggested creating her to give something extra to the video.

"Mr. Greg"

While Rainbow Quartz did not physically appear, she was indirectly mentioned by Pearl as she was singing "It's Over Isn't It".

"Now We're Only Falling Apart"

Now We're Only Falling Apart (352)

Rainbow Quartz's first formation.

After seeing Ruby and Sapphire fuse into Garnet for the first time in the Cloud Arena, Rose was inspired and Pearl attempted to fuse with her for the first time. However, the fusion attempt failed, only creating her form out of light for an instant before breaking apart.

Personality

Little is known about Rainbow Quartz's traits or personality, since she made an appearance only twice. From Pearl's perspective, she existed at the time only to show Greg that she and Rose have a better relationship, and he needs to understand that for her, he's just a common and odd human.

Abilities

Rainbow Quartz is assumed to possess standard Gem abilities and traits. Being a fusion of Pearl and Rose Quartz, it could be assumed that she is very powerful, since she is a Diamond fusion.

She is very agile and graceful, as she can stand on the tips of her toes and execute acrobatics. Her weapon is yet to be seen, as she was only formed by Rose and Pearl for Greg Universe's music video, and as part of a failed fusion attempt.
