Quahog Pearl has standard gem abilities.
Quahog Pearl was given to Charoite as a gift for his contributions to gem society. She had always stood by him and performed her duties as his servant. The pearl went with Charoite to Earth to monitor the colony's process. As the rebellion began, Quahog Pearl and Charoite took refuge inside an underground cave. When Charoite took this as an opportunity to continue his research, Quahog Pearl helped him move most of his equipment underground. The two were then sealed away as the war began and found that they had been followed. An artisan gem named Kaolinite appeared and was made Charoite's temporary assistant. Quahog Pearl was not pleased by this and insulted the aristan whenever she could She and Kaolinite were ordered to tunnel themselves out of the cave and fetch Charoite some gem shards. On one of their hunts, Quahog Pearl attempted to sabotage Kaolinite by pushing her in a crossfire between quartz gems and rebels. However, she tripped and ended up in the scuffle herself. One of the quartz gems landed a blow on her gemstone and she shattered. Later, Kaolinite snuck in and retrieved her shards. They were re-purposed for one of Kaolinite's living sculptures.
As his pearl, she loved him. Quahog Pearl is romantically attracted towards him, finding the gem charming, intelligent, and beautiful. The pearl goes to great lengths to praise him, often doing so with other pearls. She's unable to see any of Charoite's flaws, often turning a blind eye towards them. While she is possessive and gets jealous of those who spend time with Charoite, she wants what's best for him. Quahog Pearl dreamed that she'd be Charoite's assistant when they were stuck underground, but was thwarted by Kaolinite.
Quahog Pearl hated the artisan gem. She saw Kaolinite as a blockade between her and Charoite. The pearl always said very harsh and nasty comments whenever she could. She would gladly see to it that Kaolinite gets hurt or shattered.
