Ah, Yes, Hello, Fellow Gems! You're Going To Kill Me Now, Aren't You?
|—Moonstone, Mere Moments After Being Caught By Homeworlders.|
Here's Moonstone. Because I couldn't find any Moonstones in the recent activity. I'm gonna make one. Unoriginal, I know.
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
Dark Moor - The Moon
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 The Very Definition Of being something you're simply not; Doing their absolute best to remain stoic during the heat of battle or in the midst of an extremely stressful situation, Though, In essence, He's about as distant as, Well, The moon, Most of the time. Often easily losing focus or attention slipping from important things in favor of something that catches their interest, They would've never made it on Homeworld. In Fact, They might even be viewed as defective, The only time their Emotions happen to shine through being when in the heat of combat or when they've kept them locked away for far too long.
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 clutch the sword in front of oneself, And gain a temporary boost to Resistance and Swinging Speed, A side effect being the common loss of pain during attacks. Some say this is entirely dependent on the user's prowess with the weapon, And with Moonstone, it should come no surprise that they often lose track of when they have the ability active. For about one minute total, This ability gives them the edge in a battle that they may very well be losing, And without it, He would surely perish against stronger foes.
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.
I also really wanted to put Ludwig The Holy Blade's Theme Here. But. I managed to Stave the Urge off, For now.
I'll change the Color Palette if it's really that Blinding. Just let me know, Please! It's no issue.
