Garnet is one of the main characters of the Cartoon Network's television series Steven Universe. A product Gem (also known as "Fusion Gem") of Ruby and Sapphire, Garnet is the current de facto leader of the Crystal Gems. One of the few Gem survivors who escaped to Earth, Garnet joined the Crystal Gems in the rebellion against their homeworld, and afterwards assisted her friends in protecting Earth over the next few millennia. After Rose Quartz gave up her physical form to give birth to her son, Steven Universe, Garnet took over as the leader of Steven's team. Though she is often the most pragmatic and straightforward of the group, Garnet tends to act on intuition rather than seriously analyzing a situation. She appears in the second Heroes vs. Villains as one of the secondary combatants on the side of good.
