Wurtzite Boron Nitride is primarily, Black and Grey in coloration, His skin being a dark hue of the latter, with his auxiliary features mostly being the former. He stands at a reasonable 7'5", His eyes a prominent Black, hidden away in their sockets, nigh unnoticeable without proper lighting. He wears a fairly simple helmet, to protect again head-trauma and the likes, connected to a Splatter Mask over his face, hiding hit, for the most part. He wears a simple uniform, over himself, a Black-ish Grey Field-Jacket, and matching, although somewhat lighter, trousers, disappearing under knee-high Combat boots, colored pitch.
Wurtzite Boron Nitride is a cheery Gem. He lives his days out primarily in reserve, as Homeworld's widespread conquering has died down some with the population decrease from the Great Gem War. His general demeanor can be described as hoarse, although enjoyable, with a flat tone and dark sense of humor. Though that is as dark as he gets, being such a jolly entity, with much vigor left in him, despite all the depression ongoing around him.
Wurtzite Boron Nitride is, for all it's worth, a skillful combatant to most Quartz, and higher. Although not the peak of his caste, he is quite durable, and capable, being the hexagonally engineered form of Diamond. Though lacking in the size and power of his leaders, he is related, at the very least, with a margin of the expected power. His weapon of choice, or, lack thereof, is a Raiding Club, A barbaric weapon intended for night-time attacks on enemy positions, although just as effective in hand-to-hand combat. It stands with a simple handle, meant to be wielded in either one or two hands, with an extensive, sturdy pole, leading to the cylindrical head, with four sets of three long spikes on all sides. While short-ranged, it is incredibly effective up close, where it's meant to be used.
Wurtzite Boron Nitride, given that he is a subsidiary of the Diamonds themselves, is a durable Gem. As a soldier, and mechanic, he's often required to sit directly on the frontline, be it statically, or pushing forward. As such, and as predicted by his creators at The [REDACTED] Kindergarten, his caste and Gemstone were engineered for the purpose. He is fully capable of sustaining multiple direct hits from small-arms fire, and even nearby detonations, although he is not invulnerably by any means.
Wurtzite Boron Nitride, As determined by his creators, is fully capable of manipulating various Alloys, meshes, and metals, to the extent of their physical limit. This primarily comes into play as a way of reparation, when local vehicles are damaged to such an extent that they require such. Though, the stronger the material, the longer it takes, generally, he requires some state of wellbeing to put his energy into such a task.
Wurtzite Boron Nitride, as a consequence of his Gemstone, takes an incredible amount of time to regenerate, and repair, from his Gemstone or otherwise, when damaged. Thus, once taken out of action, he likely will stay that way for a long while, unless aided by a Field Medic, or other Medical Aid. He simply lacks the energy required, after the amount spent keeping his dextrous form up and running at peak condition.
Wurtzite Boron Nitride is another incarnation of a much, much older, Character of mine.
