Garnet is the tallest and most muscular of the Crystal Gems. She has dark skin and curly black hair that is styled into a cube-shaped afro. Her eyes are almost always covered by futuristic shades that covers all three of her eyes (two where a human's eyes are and one in the middle of her forehead). She wears a black and red bodysuit with cube shoulder pads and a pink star on her chest. She also wears long black gloves. Her gemstones are garnets embedded in her palms.
Garnet has a calm, stoic demeanor and rarely speaks more than a few words at a time. She has a British accent. She is the most in touch with the energy of the universe and uses this to summon her weapon. She is the most stable member and is a mentor to Steven.
All Gems have many powers including the ability to summon a weapon and shapeshift. When Garnet activates her gem, she summons her weapon, gauntlets. She also appears to have psychokinetic abilities. In Cheeseburger Backpack, it is stated that she is able to sense structural integrity. She can summon her shades at any time.
In "Steven Universe"Edit
Steven respects Garnet as a leader, and a responsible older sister figure. In return, Garnet tends to have more faith in Steven's plans and ideas than Amethyst and Pearl. She also protects him from their antics and bickering.
While Amethyst is seen to chafe at being told what to do, she will follow orders from Garnet. This shows that Amethyst respects Garnet's leadership abilities and judgment.
Like Amethyst and Steven, Pearl respects Garnet's leadership abilities. While she is occasionally patronizing and condescending to the other Gems, Pearl treats Garnet as an equal.
