Like most of the Pearls, she is a very serviceable gem and a loyal companion, she moves around with grace, having a good mood, even in bad situations.
Since Topaz was worried about Howlite being alone during her rehabilitation, he gave her some money to buy a Pearl as a companion, to not leave her alone while he was out. She refused first but in the end she went into to a black market guided by WCE, and bought a Tahitian Pearl from some suspicious gems, thinking maybe that gem was captured and enslaved.
She didn't had any prior memories, so she practically acted like a normal servant, at the end Howlite treated her more like a little sister than a servant, Tahitian is confused about this but she seems comfy with their new "family".
Tahitian Pearl, now under the name of Taiya, wanders around Homeworld lonely, since Topaz never came back from his mission, not knowing about his dead, she is tried to find a new home, also trying to contact with Howlite or WCE somehow, waiting for someone to "pick her up".
Eventually, a mysterious creature helped her to go back with Howl, now being a free gem, away from Homeworld.
Taiya is skinny and she looks a little fragile, wearing a black shirt, and a black skirt, her outfit isn't too awsome, since no one told her what to dress, so she changes it often.
Like most Gems, Taiya can shape-shift, summon a weapon, fuse, and retreat to her gemstone to regenerate.
