I've Watched The Ocean, Every Day, For A Thousand Years. Not Once Has It Changed. I Await The Day It Does.

Holy Moonlight Sword
Well, I mean. He has a book. A tiny one. I guess he could Whack someone with it.

A Line Of Moonstones So Detailed And Original That I Couldn't Even Begin To Imagine Them, Let Alone Describe Them
Rainbow - Light In The Black
Moonstone stands at 7'11", Just above average in terms of height, His common attire being A Dark-Brown Undershirt, With a white-ish-grey collar and sleeves, Partially hidden beneath a Light-Grey Overshirt, Of which covers acts as more of a vest, Given that it covers all aside his collar, Sleeves, And Middlemost region of the aforementioned garb. He can generally be viewed as Pale in terms of coloring, Almost milky in terms of contrast. Terms. I use the word 'Terms' A lot. Moonstone, While not immensely outstanding in coloration or size, Does offer something to those who prefer the simple side of people.
Moonstone Is one of the most confusing Gems to ever join the rebellion, let alone take up arms against a planet and force as powerful as Homeworld. His reasoning behind it is somewhat simple; He grew views of which deeply conflicted Homeworld's. Those of which stood for equality; Something absolutely unacceptable on the Planet of Hierarchy. He can be seen as a patriotic Gem, In certain ways, but by no means does he support any specific Country, Continent, or Planet, Even. Just the Gems that inhabit it. He's almost inadvertently shy when it comes to interaction, Though he absolutely craves for it, Being isolated for all of those years.
Here we have Moonstone's most desirable aspect. Abilities. It's a shame that they don't spend more time honing them, Their only prowess being in the use of his Trademarked Greatsword. Though, Don't all Gems have the excelling ability to use their Weapon? Moonstone's Primary weapon would be a Large, Blindingly silver Greatsword, Bandaging wrapped around the lower Third of such, Excluding the Hilt. Its real focus should come to its Astonishing Ability to envelop itself in Moonlight on a whim, Boosting Moonstone's physical capabilites By a Sizable Margin. Or rather, Their ability to actually hold it with one hand. As, Surely, Such an ability would be viewed as overpowered; A seemingly pointless way to increase strength. The length and size of the Blade overall growing outward due to the bright Aquamarine that Covers the weapon and the area around it, its attacks leave a glowing trail, And at the cost of one's own Stamina, May launch waves of Moonlight at their foes from afar. The only reason to keep it in its untransformed state, Would be the fact that it is a dead giveaway on both the Battlefield and when Trying to keep under the cover of darkness.
The ability to thrust the aforementioned weapon into the Ground, Thus propelling and causing damage to all those around Moonstone should He become overwhelmed. For around Thirty seconds after this attack, Moonstone's Sword loses it's bright Glow, Leaving them much more vulnerable to attack.
The ability to, at the cost of great amounts of energy, lift the Sword in its transformed state above one's head, First calling upon the moon to briefly stagger those around the wielder, And then slam it into the ground, causing catastrophic amounts of Damage to whatever may be caught in the traveling pillar of Moonlight, reaching several dozen meters in front of Moonstone, and hurling turquoise fire into the skies, be it only for a few seconds. The primary use of this attack is to disable structures, vehicles, and humongous fusions, though almost killing Moonstone in the process.
The ability to harness the very power of the moon, Clutching the weapon with two hands and holding it over the shoulder, And thrust it forward, Hurling a shadowy light-wave in front of oneself, Be it for only a few feet, Causing immense damage to those caught in it, And, More often than not, Propel them into either the Ground, Or into (and occasionally through) a nearby building.
Moonstone was originally created a Scholar for Blue Diamond, During a time of peace on Homeworld, Such Gems were desired, As they were far and few between. One of few Gems to actually sprout from the Moon, It was a sickly surprise for Homeworlders to stumble upon one of their experiments having gave birth to a functioning Gem, The resulting encounter ending with Moonstone's untimely Demise, Destabilized By the Guards that came upon them, And taken to Homeworld for investigation. The next few years prove an untimely Imprisonment, Up until they had been recognized for unique traits that bore a Gem from Luna. After this short period of Misunderstanding After Misunderstanding, Moonstone was enlisted as the Scholar they were created to be, Alongside their Brethren. By the time the War had started to Dawn, Moonstone was already on thin ice with their Homeworld, And, When they had gotten word of the Rebellion, They made haste to join the fleeing Gems, Aboard some of the final Ships that made it to Earth before Hell had Broken Loose. Upon arriving, Moonstone and Their company of Gems had come to realize that the War had already begun, Landing Amidst one of the opening battles that brought the war unto Earth. After having reached Safety, Albeit Lost in the woods with no sense of Direction, They, By pure luck, Stumbled upon a Cave of which they took shelter in. Making a home for themself within a few days, A Homeworld patrol had located Moonstone a while later, As they slowly advanced towards the Rebels. It was a swift demise; Moonstone only managing to wound one of them with Their Unwieldy Sword before being surrounded and promptly Forced to Retreat, Gem ending up buried neath the Sand for years to come.
Like the Sword? I Know i do. It's probably one of my very favorite weapons, If not my favorite weapon altogether, From the Souls Series. I know i'm unoriginal, And i know i'm probably going to get some disapproving head-shaking, But come on, It's inspiration, Regardless of where it comes from. That being said, I really do love the Moonlight Greatsword, And it was the inspiration for this particular Character.
