Episode Appearances


Steven Universe

Steven Universe is the son of Rose Quartz. Rose gave up her physical form to bring Steven into the world while in a romantic relationship with Greg Universe (Steven's father).

Steven doesn't seem to know much about his mother apart from what the members of the Crystal Gems and his father, Greg Universe have told him.

Members of the Crystal Gems

Rose Quartz was previously a member of the Crystal Gems before she brought Steven into existence. The group seems to hold her in high esteem. Amethyst is quoted as saying "If Rose were here, this would be so easy" in the episode "Laser Light Cannon." The members of the group seem to mourn her passing, but even though she gave up her existence to bring Steven into the world, they do not blame it on him and live with him in the temple.

Greg Universe

Greg Universe was the romantic partner of Rose Quartz until she brought Steven into the world. Greg and Rose seemed to have had a very good relationship, but most of what we know is from Greg's point of view. He said that the two of them met at one of his one-man band concerts in Beach City, where she was the only attendee. He also said that they became inseparable, yet he had no idea "what a magical lady like that ever saw in a plain old dope like [him]." In the episode "Lars and the Cool Kids," it is revealed that Rose saw beauty in everything, referring back to the episode "Laser Light Cannon," when Greg Universe wonders "what a magical lady like that ever saw in a plain old dope like me." It is a reflection on her feelings for Greg to note that Rose used his catchphrase as the activation words of her Light Cannon.


  • In the episode "Laser Light Cannon", the light that came out of the cannon resembled her.
  • A possible reason she married Greg was because of the song he made for her, "Let me Drive my Van into your Heart".
  • Outside the Temple, Rose is pictured on the temple with 4 arms.
  • In gem stone mythos, rose quartzes are stones associated with love and health.
  • Rose has not been seen with her eyes open.
  • Rose's gem was located on her stomach, just as Steven's gem is located on his.
  • The outfit she is wearing is a white dress with a star cut in the middle of a stomach where her gem is visible
