Steven Universe is the main protagonist of Steven Universe and the only male member of the Crystal Gems.


Steven is relatively short with a thick build. He has curly dark brown hair and black pupils. He wears a red T-shirt with a yellow star on it. He also wears blue jeans and redish pinkish sandals. His Crystal Gem, A rose quartz which he inherited from his mother, is where his bellybutton should be. He is about 3 feet tall. 


Steven has a fun and musical personality, He likes to sing and play on his ukulele. He enjoys adventures and wants to save the world with his fellow Crystal Gems, Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl, even though he doesn't have control over his gem yet. He treats them like friends, looks up to them like sisters, and takes their advice to heart. Steven has a very unique way of handling problems, Often making them worse before solving them. What he lacks in experience and magical ability he makes up for by being resourceful, optimistic, and confident in himself. He tries to fix problems on his own first before seeking help, fueled by his happy-go-lucky attitude.

However, despite his cheerful attitude, Steven has his limits. Due to never getting to know his mother, he is extremely protective whenever someone badmouths her. As shown in "Lars and the Cool Kids", when Lars blamed his problems on Steven's "weird mom". Normally trying to make friends with the stuck up teen, Steven immediately snaps at him, much to Lars' own surprise.


All Gems have the ability to summon a weapon and shapeshift. Although Steven does not have control of his gem yet, his weapon is a shield that can change shapes. He has shapeshifted his fingers, but with disastrous results. He can also change his age. He might be immortal unless of sickness, injury or if he changes his age to old and dies. Steven can also create a magic bubble that can protect him from many different energy projectiles and physical projectiles, as demonstrated in Lion 2, The Movie, when he was shielded from the giant floating automaton.


Rose Quartz

Not much is known about Steven's relationship with his mother as she had to give up her physical form to give birth to Steven. She gave him her gem, the rose quartz. However in Lars and the Cool Kids Steven defended Rose when Lars called her weird saying how he's sad how never got to knew his mother, yet he knows Rose saw beauty in everything. 

Greg Universe

Greg Universe is Steven's father. As seen in "Laser Light Cannon" and "Cat Fingers," they share a strong father-to-son bond and Greg is always emotionally supportive. Although Greg does not live with Steven, they often hang out.


Pearl acts more motherly to Steven than the other Crystal Gems do, as whenever he's in a possibly dangerous situation, she usually panics and acts first to protect him.


Amethyst acts like an older sister to Steven, often joking around with him and joining him in his misadventures. Pearl will often scold Amethyst for being too reckless with Steven when she misleads him such as in "Cat Fingers," which Amethyst admits is probably accurate.


Garnet acts more like a mentor towards Steven, always encouraging him and setting a good example. It is shown that Steven respects her as he always listens whenever she speaks.


Sadie is one of Steven's friends who, unlike her fellow employee Lars, is friendly and considerate towards Steven.


Connie is one of Steven's friends and a possible crush whom he saved in "Bubble Buddies" from a falling rock using his magical crystal bubble power. He is initially seen being relatively nervous to talk with her, but presently, they appear to be close friends.

Peedee Fryman

Peedee is Steven's friend whom he helped out in the episode "Frybo." Thanks to Steven, Peedee earned the respect of his father and didn't have to wear the Frybo suit anymore.


Onion is Steven's friend whom he talks to in the episode "Bubble Buddies". Steven addresses Onion as if they're good friends. In the episode, Steven asks Onion to pop the bubble with a harpoon gun.


Lars appears to be annoyed by Steven. He is always making fun of him, although this may only be because he is jealous of Steven for being a Crystal Gem. Steven may be ignorant of this however, because in "Bubble Buddies", he refers Lars as his 'BFF.' However in Lars and the Cool Kids he got angry with Lars and called him a jerk for insulting his mother. As of Lars and the Cool Kids Lars and Steven find a way to connect and Lars is seemingly on better terms with Steven.
