Although this doesn't really portray my current hair style (since I drew this months ago) I still really liked the design so I didn't want to change it.
Not to mention my hair is spiked up and I can't draw it for the life of me.
Also, I have like, three? reasons for choosing this specific gem which are
1. It's pink and red, my two favorite colors
2. The particularly pink ones are usually found in US gem mines
3. This gem's color is described as 'pure seduction' by a couple of sites and that works because I often have people tell me they have a crush on me or they really like me.
So here we are.
Name: Rubellite Tourmaline
Nicknames: Rube, Tor, Ruby
Age: Relatively young, a few hundred years.
Gender: Sexless identifies as Male.
Pronouns: He/him/his they/their/theirs
Abilities: Calming to be around, When heated up they will cause a small magnetic pull.
Personality: Rubellite is just the right person to ask for advice as they can usually tell you just what you need to know or need to hear. Their presence is very calming to most, however, they are usually never calm themselves. They experience emotions intensely and usually, you can't tell exactly what they're feeling because they're pretty all over the place in showing their emotions. They are very extroverted and usually pretty anxious when not fused with anyone because they're paranoid about what others think. His main goal is to find true love, but they often have the problem of falling for people who will never think of him as more than a friend, despite often having people tell him they want to date or even sleep with him (which usually spikes his anxiety because he hates rejecting people and he has no idea how sex would work between a gem and a human). He is pretty good at catching and telling innuendos tho. Before meeting Citrine and Pink Pearl he was somewhat insecure about being a gem when he was around humans because the only other gem he knew of was Emerald, He's had a few human names and knows how to use human makeup to pass as a human.

Mohs scale: 8

History: Rubellite was created in a Kindergarten on Earth, however, it wasn't the same one as Amethyst, it was one shut down almost immediately after it's creation. Rubellite had wandered around the Kindergarten alone for days before finding Emerald and the two became friends. They traveled around, learning about gem things on their own, like accidentally fusing after seeing a few humans dancing and deciding to try it out. They'd panicked and immediately unfused, however, a few days later they tried to do it again to see exactly what they'd done. Rubellite was the first one to learn to summon their weapon, though, because they'd wandered into trouble and they'd covered their gem to protect it, accidentally summoning an axe. Once they were around three hundred years old they'd started wearing human clothing over their initial bodysuits, although they'd swapped the human gender roles, as Rube would wear dresses and Em would wear pants. At around five hundred years old Em had been hurt as a homeworld ship had crashed and reverted back into her gemstone. To protect her, Rube had found a cave and hidden her within it before drawing his axe and approaching the site. After an hour of searching the wreckage, he'd decided to return to Emerald before seeing a large glow of light and a large, wreckage covered fusion rose out of the rubble before unfusing and dropping Citrine and a Pearl. Rube watched as the Citrine caught the pearl in the air, and he decided he'd sneak up while they were preoccupied and attack, however, his dress had caught on some rubble and he'd fallen into their line of sight, his axe flying a little too far for him to quickly grab. The two noticed him and the pearl was quickly dropped to her feet as the Citrine reached to summon her own weapon. Rube tugged at his dress uselessly as the large Citrine approached with a mace in her hands. In a last ditch attempt to preserve his life, he'd covered his gem and quickly flattened himself face first. He waited a moment, holding his not needed breath as he realized Em would never know what happened to him. He sniffled loudly and the Citrine stopped in her tracks. She glanced wearily at the pearl before ridding of her weapon and freeing Rube's dress from the wreck. He took a minute before looking up at the Citrine, and they offered him a hand that he hesitantly took. Once he was to his feet he gathered his axe and got rid of it before deciding to get to know the two who'd crashed into his planet. Once Em had reformed she'd been introduced to the two and they all became friends in time. They'd all decided to build one of the houses they've seen the humans have and they created a large four-story house, a floor for each of them. Rube had also gotten a human job of fashion designer around the 1920s. In the 1950s, a Euclase and an Azurite both escaped from one of the other planet kindergartens to avoid a mess left by a screw-up, they faked their deaths.
