Orthoclase (nicknamed Paddy by KJD) is a Homeworld Gem, and an original character created by KJD.
Orthoclase has light yellow skin, pale yellow hair, and two eyes with brown irises and no pupils. She has a moderately thick build with a round chest, a thick waist, and medium hips. Her gemstone is embedded in her left shoulder.
She wears a dark yellow bodysuit with a Yellow Diamond insignea.
As Orthoclases are usually suspicious by nature, this one is assumed to be too.
Orthoclase possesses standard Gem abilities, bubbling, shapeshifting, fusion, regeneration, agelessness, and superhuman strength/durability.
