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 black hair and black pupils. He wears a red T-shirt with a yellow star on the front. 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. 


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.


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.


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 Steven's love interest whom he saved in "Bubble Buddies" from a falling rock using his magical crystal bubble power. He is too nervous to ask her out and Amethyst and Pearl were trying to help him a little too much, though Garnet insisted they leave Steven to his own devices. The crush appears one-sided, however they are 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.


  • Steven's name and appearance is based on Rebecca Sugar's brother Steven Sugar who is a background artist for the show.
  • Steven is the only character that has a crystal gem, but is not named after it.
    • Steven is also the only Crystal Gem that doesn't have a color scheme that matches with their gem.
  • In "Together Breakfast", he had a phone similar to an iPhone, but Garnet snatched it from him to destroy it after he took a picture of a possessed poster.
  • In "Together Breakfast" Steven seems to be surprisingly strong, as he is the only one to defeat the possessed giant Together Breakfast monster by himself without his other Crystal Gems.
  • Steven has an ability to age to whatever age he wants to be shown in "So Many Birthdays".
  • Since the show is named after him, he will most likely appear in every episode.

    • Well, since his middle name is "Quartz", you'd think it'd be a kind of quartz. Probably Rose Quartz, like @GabbyIsAGem said.
