|This article is about the fusion of Fire Agate and canon Sapphire. You may be looking for Grape Agate (Character).|
Grape Agate is spider-like, having eight limbs with two extra abdomens. She is relatively tall, having a few inches over Rose Quartz. The gemstone placements are located on the palm of her right hand and left side of her chest.
The top part of Grape Agate looks fairly normal. She has a white beehive hairstyle that curls in the back. Like Sapphire, Grape Agate also has bangs that covers the top portion of her head. Underneath, is an eye socket filled with multiple eyeballs. Her face is relatively long with a rounded jaw, plump lips, and patchy skin. She wears a purple top with puffy sleeves with a line pattern going across it. Grape Agate inherited Sapphire's long, white gloves that cover up to her forearm.
Her long waist separates the top half from the bottom half. The bottom half has two abdomens, one of which has a large faceless mouth that often bears visible human teeth. It's accompanied with two giant arms inside visible sockets on the side. The second abdomen is much larger and more elaborate. It has a long dress with a jeweled rim. There is a noticeable bump where the dress ends and the rest of the abdomen is shown. Like the first abdomen, the second one has sockets with two pairs of legs. Grape Agate wears long boots with small heels, which are marked by a different color. Her legs are attached to giant circular joints that stick out from the abdomen.
Grape Agate is sophisticated and composed with a dash of assertiveness. Sapphire has experience with fusions with fiery personalities, mellowing out Fire Agate's rather passionate nature. In a way, Grape Agate's personality is similar to Garnet's. But unlike Garnet, this fusion is more analytical. Grape Agate carefully explores what certain situations need and how to go about them.
Determination is a trait both Sapphire and Fire Agate share and is presented tenfold within Grape Agate. When there's something that needs to be done, she'll do it without hesitation. With the aid of her future insight, Grape Agate can get it done efficiently. But as a downside, this aspect makes her stubborn and overconfident. As she has already seen what has happened, she knows her plans will work without fail. She'll rarely, if ever, consider other possibilities or approaches. When she's angry, Grape Agate will speak in a sarcastic tone.
Although not often displayed, Grape Agate has a slight flirtatious side. It's not bad enough to distract her from her work.
Grape Agate has standard Gem abilities.
Due to her calm and analytical nature, Grape Agate focuses more on planning her attacks ahead of time. This is made possible thanks to her future vision. Her extra limbs make it harder to use her weapon so she relies more on her abilities to fight.
