Orthoclase is a Gem, and an original Gemsona created by KJD. She is currently fused with Albite as Moonstone in the planet they were left behind.

Appearance Edit

Orthoclase has cream skin, styled, light cream hair, two eyes with bronze irises and no pupils, thin lips, and rounded shoulders. She has a moderately thick build with a round chest, a thick waist, and medium hips. Her gemstone is embedded in her chest.

Personality Edit

Orthoclase is super protective and only cares about the well being of Albite. She has very little self-worth and lacks confidence.[6] Orthoclase is fiesty, stubborn but doesn’t really get angry.[7]

Orthoclase doesn't have any concern for her own well being, all she cares about is keeping Albite safe and wants her to be happy. She has no self-confidence.[8]

Orthoclase has some serious self-worth issues. Homeworld determined that her life was worthless when they gave them the orders to sacrifice themselves if necessary for the Gems they guard, and since that's all she's ever been told it’s hard to believe in anything else. Albite tries to show her that they should be equals, no more or less important than each other. She also believes she's defective because she doesn't enjoy nor want to fight.[9]

Abilities Edit

Orthoclase possesses standard Gem abilities, bubbling, shapeshifting, fusion, regeneration, agelessness, and superhuman strength/durability.
