Cherry Opal is a gemsona created by N.R. Wynter. She is a hypothetical fusion of Fire Agate and canon Ruby.

Personality

As a fusion, Cherry Opal adopts the personalities of both Fire Agate and Ruby. She is described as a grump who hides her softer side by acting mean and tough. The fusion never hesitates to show off her incredible strength, often picking fights with others. Cherry Opal wants to make sure everyone knows how powerful she is despite her delicate-sounding name.

Because her components share similar personality traits, they are amplified in Cherry Opal. Being passionate and emotional, she has a hard time controlling her emotions. The fusion is known for her short fuse and violent behavior. Cherry Opal doesn't like a lot of things which makes it easier for her to be blunt and badmouth whatever comes to mind. When she finds something she does like she expresses with enthusiasm. The fusion puts one hundred percent of her effort into everything she does, even if it's of no real importance.

Cherry Opal only expresses her gentle side to Sapphire and Blue Obsidian. To them, she is gentle, caring, and very protective. The fusion makes sure others around them know that if they do anything to them she will destroy them. If it came down to it, Cherry Opal would willingly fight to the death for their safety. The fusion is also known to get embarrassed easily, whether it's about her uncontrollable rage, her name, or how she cries over sappy movies.

Abilities

Cherry Opal has standard Gem abilities.

Fusion:

Unique Abilities

  • Lava Manipulation: With the combined fire power of Ruby and Fire Agate, Cherry Opal is able to control lava. She can create it by heating the surrounding earth.
  • Pyrokinesis: Cherry Opal is able to create and manipulate fire.
  • Heat Resistance: A trait inherited from both Ruby and Fire Agate. Cherry Opal is able to withstand intense temperatures.

Relationships

Sapphire

Out of all of the Crystal Gems, Sapphire is the only one that Cherry Opal treats with respect. This is most likely due to Ruby's romantic feelings for her. She is very protective of Sapphire and always focuses on her well-being. While Cherry Opal doesn't display any romantic feelings for Sapphire, she does get flustered when the blue Gem talks to her.

Blue Obsidian

Because Blue Obsidian is Fire Agate's best friend, Cherry Opal also likes them. She shares the same sentiment with Blue Obsidian as she does with Sapphire. The fusion gives them her full attention, always looking after their well being, and very protective. Cherry Opal enjoys watching films with them.

Crystal Gems

Like many things, Cherry Opal doesn't like them. This could be from Fire Agate's disdain towards them. However, Cherry Opal only goes so far as to tease and pick fights (usually with Amethyst), which she finds enjoyment in.

Astro Gems

While Cherry Opal doesn't have anything personal against them, she's not fond of them either.

Trivia

  • All fusions that exclusively involve Fire Agate, Ruby, and Sapphire have gems named after fruit.
  • Cherry Opal's design is based on the oni, a type of Yōkai.[2]
