They're always sending me on these miserable missions. I'm always pretending I'm fine with it. I have to pretend I'm fine.
Topaz's gemstones are on both sides of her head, around where her ears would be. Her components are identical, but shorter, with one having her gemstone on the left side of her head, and the other with her gemstone on her right.
Topaz has yellow hair in a short, flat top-like fashion, yellow skin, and a tinted orange visor that covers her eyes and the sides of her head. Her eyes appear to be brown.
Her outfit consists of a maroon vest with Yellow Diamond's insignia, a mahogany top underneath, and dark brown bottoms that cover her feet. She has a large, broad, and muscular build with relatively short legs and long, powerful arms. She has a rather square head and chin.
Topaz, like her components, is a silent and obedient soldier. She clearly respects the Gem hierarchy, obeying all of Aquamarine's orders instantly, wordlessly, and without question (despite being insulted by her constantly). She is described by Rebecca Sugar to be "particularly powerful". She is also seen as ruthless towards humans, being willing to kill Jamie to get the Crystal Gems to tell them where "My Dad" was. She is also not above fighting dirty, using Steven's friends to protect herself from Garnet's attacks.
However, in "Stuck Together", Topaz shows an emotional side of herself, starting to cry after hearing Steven and Lars' conversation. She speaks to the humans for the first time, revealing that (while she appears fine with her role) she is unhappy with how she is treated. However, while originally willing to defy Aquamarine (and, by extension, the Diamonds), she changes her mind after being reminded that her components would be separated and shattered for rebelling.
Topaz was sent to Earth with Aquamarine personally by Blue and Yellow Diamond to retrieve specific "variations" of humans for Pink Diamond's Zoo. These specific humans are the ones mentioned by Steven in his first interaction with Peridot in "Marble Madness".
Topaz and Aquamarine chase down Onion at Beach City Funland during the middle of the night. Once Doug Maheswaran, Steven, and Connie leave the scene, Topaz and Aquamarine approach Onion and capture him.
Topaz and Aquamarine capture Jamie when he is out to deliver Steven's khakis. Later on in a forest, Aquamarine calls out for Topaz when she discovers Connie. Topaz approaches, making the ground shake with each step that she takes, and is shown to have each missing human inside of her body. Topaz unfuses into two. The two hold hands, charge at Connie and fuse, engulfing her in the fusion and making her part of the body with the other humans. After incapacitating Steven, Topaz and Aquamarine then exit the forest to find the last human: "My Dad".
Topaz and Aquamarine hide at Funland where Steven and the Crystal Gems find them. At some point, the Crystal Gems begin attacking the duo, but Topaz is easily able to fend off Garnet and Amethyst on her own. When Aquamarine gets annoyed by the fight and threatens to kill the humans if they did not tell her where "My Dad" is, Topaz grabs Jamie's head to emphasize the threat. Once Steven claims to be "My Dad", Topaz unfuses. The two topazes engulf Steven when they refuse.
On Aquamarine's ship, Steven causes Topaz to unfuse and frees all of the humans by using his bubble. Following Aquamarine's orders, the two individual Topazes summon their maces and attempt to recapture the humans. One Topaz has difficulty attacking Steven and Connie due to Steven's bubble and shield and is shown to be on par with Connie's swordfighting. Another Topaz picks up Sadie but lets her go when Sadie bites one of her fingers. The Topazes fuse again at some point, but Topaz is still unable to recapture the humans. When Steven later gives himself up, Aquamarine, Steven, Topaz and Lars head for Homeworld.
While on Aquamarine's Ship, one Topaz holds Steven while the other finds Lars hiding on the ship's staircase. They are ordered by Aquamarine to fly the ship to Homeworld and fuse, so Steven and Lars are contained. At some point, the ship's engine fails, so Topaz goes to the ship's engine room to repair it. While repairing it, Topaz listens to Lars and Steven's conversation and is touched by how, even though they are in big trouble, they find comfort in each other. Topaz begins to cry, explaining how she has to pretend to be okay with her job, but hates it, as someone always comes between her component Topazes.
Topaz then decides to help Lars and Steven get off the ship. She activates the escape pod but is stopped by Aquamarine. Topaz, with the support of Steven, tries to explain what they were doing, but Aquamarine destroys the escape pod. Being threatened, Topaz grabs one of the Gem Destabilizer weapons and pins Aquamarine to a wall. Aquamarine explains how Topaz will be separated and shattered for what she is doing, bringing Topaz back to her senses. She releases Aquamarine, and they all agree to never talk about this event again. Once they reach Homeworld, Topaz unfuses and her components take Steven and Lars to different places.
Topaz possesses the standard Gem abilities, most prominently Fusion, and is an extremely powerful Gem. She is heavy enough to make the ground shake just by walking, and her attacks are strong enough to send Garnet flying through a boarded-up carnival booth easily.
- Fusion Engulfing: Topaz's components are shown to be extremely proficient in unfusing and re-fusing rapidly around an enemy, engulfing and imprisoning them inside of their fusion.
- Mace/Pugil Stick Proficiency: Topaz wields a long crystal-headed pugil stick as a weapon. When apart, her components summon one-handed mace-like variants.
Topaz is inferior in rank compared to Aquamarine, and as such, Topaz obeys her orders without hesitation and does not speak back, despite Topaz's recessed opinions. After being defied and attacked by Topaz, Aquamarine shows mercy and decides to pretend the ordeal never occurred.

- When asked why she paired Topaz and Aquamarine together, Rebecca Sugar said it was to show both sides of the very high ranking types of blue and yellow Gems on Homeworld.
- This indicates that Topaz has a very high ranking on Homeworld, but not as high as Aquamarine.
- In "Stuck Together", it is made clear that Fused Topaz is capable of hearing despite having both her gems being where her ears would be.
- Imperial topaz is a birthstone of November, and blue topaz is a birthstone of December.
- Impurities in topaz allow the gemstone to have a variety of different color, such as yellow, blue, white, pink and light green.
- Ancient Greeks believed that people who wore topaz were granted increased strength and invisibility.
- Ancient Egyptians often associated yellow topaz with the powerful Sun God, Ra.
|Topaz's gemstones are located on both sides of her head, corresponding with her two components' gemstone locations (on the left or right sides of their heads). Her gemstones have triangular facets and a circular center facet. These gemstones resemble that of the Lighthouse Gem Monster, with the only difference being color, number of facets and shape.|
