"Fighting is my life! It's what I was made for!"

A warrior from the Gem Homeworld who fought against Rose Quartz's army more than 5,750 years ago. She returns to Earth as Peridot's escort, and later reveals herself to be formerly of Pink Diamond's Court.

    A-E 
  • The Ace: Considered the paragon of her kind by Homeworld for both being born absolutely perfect and being, to their side, a war hero. This is reflected in both her status and her capabilities. It's telling that the Topazes, despite being considerably higher-ranked than the average Quartz, don't seem as powerful as she is.
  • Admiring the Abomination: Jasper considers Lapis's apparently unprecedented hostile takeover of Malachite, and her ability to hold Jasper down and wrest control of their fusion from her, to be a positive attribute, even mentioning how impressed she is that Lapis "held out". She takes it a step further in "Alone at Sea": while it's clear that Lapis is starting to realize her conduct was monstrous in its own way, Jasper agrees... and wants to re-establish that relationship on those terms. She isn't shy about saying why:
    Jasper: I'm the only one who can handle your kind of power!
  • Aggressive Submissive: Despite being a violent, boisterous Blood Knight Jerkass, Jasper is the one who ends up being submissive to Lapis after they fuse and defuse, with the former frequently dominated by the latter's will as Malachite, and then later outright begging her to refuse while excited at the thought of receiving Lapis' anger yet again.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: In "Alone at Sea", when she finally finds Lapis, she grabs her hand, gets on her knees, and outright begs Lapis to fuse with her again.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: In "Earthlings", Jasper is revealed as a vengeful, loyal soldier who had everything taken from her by Rose Quartz, roaring at Steven for everything Rose Quartz did to her colony, her planet and to Pink Diamond, and is desperately lonely when everyone she fuses with leaves her. Losing herself to corruption, she's then bubbled by Amethyst, who sadly acknowledges her as a sister for the first time. Even more so with the later reveal that Rose was Pink Diamond, meaning her revenge was completely meaningless to begin with.
  • Aloof Big Sister:
    • Amethyst sees her as this. Though (most) Gems lack a concept of family, Jasper and Amethyst are "sisters" in that they are both Quartz soldiers made on Earth, and Amethyst calls Jasper "sis" after she's corrupted and poofed. Amethyst came out small and "defective" due to emerging 500 years later than she was supposed to, while Jasper is the most perfect Quartz ever made, which causes Amethyst to see Jasper as everything she wishes to be. Jasper is pleased to rub this in Amethyst's face in their first fight, but the next time she only reacts with contempt.
    • She becomes something of an Anti-Role Model for Steven in Future when her Blood Knight attitude activates new latent powers he didn't know he had. By the time he surpasses her (accidentally shattering her in the process), she becomes devastated when Steven no longer wants to be around her and then tries to go with him on his road trip out of a newfound desire to protect him.
  • Anatomy Anomaly: The first, and for a long time the only, character drawn with eyelashes. She's also one of the few characters with irises.
  • And I Must Scream: Lapis Lazuli traps her in her own body at the bottom of the ocean. When we next meet her in "Chille Tid", she's become completely unhinged.
  • Arch-Enemy:
    • Seems to think of Rose this way. It's unclear whether this was mutual on Rose's part or if Jasper was an Unknown Rival. It is revealed this is because Rose shattered Jasper's original Diamond: Pink Diamond. note 
    • As a result of trapping her in the ocean for months and her cruel behavior to Steven plus her treatment of her when she was forced to be her informant before the following events that happened, Lapis sees her as this.
    • After her beatdown and "Reason You Suck" Speech at Jasper's hands, Amethyst comes to regard her as this.
  • Arc Villain: Of the Season One finale. Season 3 sees her promoted into a longer term version as of "Alone at Sea".
  • Arrogant Kung Fu Girl: She claims the only reason Garnet was able to beat her was because she was a fusion. In fairness to her, the only Crystal Gems who have ever been able to defeat her (aside from Lapis, and she's got the biggest advantage of any Gem on Earth) have been fusions.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance:
    • Jasper's alternating red/orange colorization comes from the red sandstone she emerged from.
    • Her corrupted form, while taking the same figure as the Great North monsters, also resembles a ram with her horns and hooves where her feet used to be. Fitting for someone as hard-headed as she, who often headbutts her foes with her Crash Helmet.
  • Avenging the Villain: Reveals that part of the reason she wanted to destroy Rose so bad was to avenge Pink Diamond.
  • Back from the Dead: In "Fragments", after Steven gets Drunk on the Dark Side using his Pink powers, he fights Jasper and shatters her. However, because he still has all of her shards, she is Only Mostly Dead, and Steven is able to use his Diamond Essence and tears to heal her Gem, effectively bringing her back to life.
  • Badass Cape: Jasper comes out of Peridot's ship wearing a cape with a High Collar of Doom. She isn't wearing it back inside the ship when she fights Garnet again. One of the show's writers/storyboard artists states that the sole reason Jasper wore the cape was to look "intimidatingly fabulous".
  • Badass in Charge: She is clearly in charge of the mission at the end of season 1, and is the muscle of the group.
  • Bad Boss: On top of her obnoxious, domineering attitude towards Peridot, this can be seen when she later captures an "army" of corrupted gems to fight the Crystal Gems, by violently poofing them and forcing them into cages and delivering angry, insulting lectures about how pathetic they are compared to her.
  • Barbarian Long Hair: Her hair is a mess, and like all known Quartzes, it's huge and long. Her being barbaric goes without question.
  • Battle Aura: She surrounds herself with one during her Rolling Attack.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Subverted. When Steven agrees to spar with her one on one, with no fusions or tricks, she's thrilled that he rises to the occasion and beats her. It at least proves that he did win without needing help.
  • The Beastmaster: Subverted. By "Gem Hunt", Jasper has started to gather corrupted Gems in order to turn them into an army to battle Rose. As it turns out she isn't very good at controlling them, as they all flee from her abusive treatment first chance they get.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Fusion has a tendency to drive her up the wall, not because of the Homeworld taboo but because she continually gets her butt kicked by every Fusion she encounters.... and she's not used to losing.
      Jasper: I will not be beaten by another Fusion!
    • "Earthlings" makes it clear that Jasper absolutely hates Rose Quartz because Rose shattered Pink Diamond, the person Jasper was originally loyal to and served under. Ironically, Rose was Pink Diamond.
  • Beta Test Baddie: Played with. She is motivated by feeling inadequate because she was created in a second-rate kindergarten on a failed colony and failed at her most important task, and feels the need to prove herself so she feels like less of a failure. This is true even though Jasper was perfectly formed, to the point Peridot calls her "the ultimate Quartz".
  • Bigger Stick: She quickly defeats Garnet by using a gem disruptor in their first fight.
  • Black and White Insanity: A variation, using Homeworld's morality system rather than our own, forms the basis for her long Villainous Breakdown. As she explains in "Earthlings", Homeworld is built on a rigid hierarchy of use and function, with every Gem having a specific role. If one can't fulfill this role or tries to break it, in Jasper's mind they're worthless. But she believes herself to have failed when Pink died, and thus sees herself as worthless despite her prowess and ability. As a result, she becomes increasingly and outright fanatically obsessed with capturing or killing "Rose" (IE: Steven) in order to undo her failure, and as the Crystal Gems — composed of beings she believes are rejects, defects and inferiors — continue to defeat and humiliate her, this ultimately spirals into complete self-destruction.
  • Blood Knight: She decidedly enjoys battle and laments not having had the chance to pound Rose Quartz into the ground.
  • Body Horror: After fusing with a corrupted Gem, her body starts to hideously and graphically mutate into a feral form, with her eyes blotted out by two huge spikes as the rest of her original form is turned into a monster.
  • Boomerang Bigot: She likes speaking down about the Earth... but it's eventually revealed she was born there, and considers herself the only thing of worth to come from it.
  • Born Winner: Her exit hole is the most perfect one Peridot has ever seen, meaning she was born as a completely flawless "ultimate Quartz".
  • Brains and Brawn: Her relationship to Peridot in the season 1 finale. Jasper isn't stupid, but she's very much the bruiser of the two.
  • Break the Badass: She outright says that Lapis did this to her, and wants more of it. When Steven apologizes in "Fragments" for shattering her, she bows to him instead.
  • Broken Ace: Despite being the Ultimate Life Form by Quartz standards, she has some serious issues. She'd had a chip on her shoulder since Pink Diamond died and Homeworld lost Earth, seeing both as her failure regardless of her personal performance. Further defeats at the hand of the Crystal Gems made her lose confidence in her own fighting strength, and thus think of herself as completely worthless.
  • The Brute: The most physically formidable antagonist other than Monsters of the Week in early seasons. In "Alone at Sea", she calls herself one.
  • The Bully: She's simply dismissive of the Crystal Gems at first, but her attitude towards Steven and Amethyst paint her as nothing more than a bully. Word of God explicitly calls her this in an interview to hammer the point home.
  • The Bus Came Back: In "Change Your Mind".
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Amethyst's Abel, as both were born from Earth Kindergartens (different ones, but still). Amethyst even refers to Jasper as "sis" after Jasper's physical form was destroyed.
  • Cat Smile: Very subtle, but her mouth briefly shapes like this when she meets again with Lapis. She does this in "Earthlings" as well, giving her a resemblance to Amethyst.
  • Character Development: In Steven Universe Future, she is at least more willing to talk about her problems while refusing Steven's invitation to Homeschool. Her toxic dependency on Lapis also seems to have gotten better as well as her desire to fuse with someone who wants to stay. Jasper also sheds her Undying Loyalty towards Pink Diamond and tells Steven that she knows he isn't his mother— something he has been trying to convince her for three seasons straight— and he can't make her follow orders the way Pink did. What's more, when they spar, she's a Graceful Loser about Steven beating her in a fair fight. Come to the end of Future, she's willing to respect Steven's wishes on what he wants and acknowledges they both need space even if she wishes to spend time with him to rebuild their bond that shattered along with her initial form. Jasper hasn't shed all of her flaws, but Steven promises they're friends at least and when he comes back from his trip they'll catch up.
  • Clipped-Wing Angel:
    • When she fights Steven and Amethyst fused as Smoky Quartz, Jasper finally snaps at being beaten again by a "fusion" and decides to fuse with one of the Gem Monsters. This ends up biting her in the ass hard as not only did it not power her up enough, but it also ended up infecting her with whatever the corruption was after they defused.
    • Initially, her decision to become Malachite is this—she's more powerful with Lapis by her side, but their toxic relationship means they can barely function as a fusion.
    • Her corruption itself caused her to grow even larger and completely covered her body in deadly-looking spikes, but it weakened her Nigh-Invulnerability enough for Peridot to easily impale her with a metal pole.
  • Combat Pragmatist: She wields a gem destabilizer in addition to her gem weapon, allowing her to knock out other Gems in one hit if she can connect with the former. Notably, she hangs onto said destabilizer when Garnet challenges her to fight without it.
  • Comically Serious: In Future, her blunt attitude in a less dire context leads to a good deal of humor. For example, she tells Steven not to bother visiting unless he wants to fight her, clearly not expecting him to actually challenge her.
  • Contralto of Danger: She's got a notably deep voice and is a serious threat.
  • Cool Helmet: Her weapon is a helmet with a hammer-like block in front. Later it's upgraded to a helmet with two wicked looking spikes beside the hammer.
  • The Corruption: In "Earthlings", after fusing with a corrupted Gem, she becomes one herself.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Her fights with Amethyst which shows just how dangerous a fully developed Quartz is against a defective one. Finally on the receiving end of this in her battle with Smoky Quartz.
    • She receives another one a the hands of a powered-up Steven, who becomes capable of easily overpowering her in a toe-to-toe fight after she pushes him too far.
  • Defeat Means Respect: She has genuine respect for people that can put up a fight against her on what she considers fair terms (specifically, no fusion). In Future, she even tells Steven that if he expects her to cooperate with him, he has to fight her first. After he's able to lay a beating down on her, she develops a lot of respect for him, though she still keeps herself distant. When Steven accidentally shatters her and puts the pieces back together, Jasper kneels before him.
  • Defiant to the End: "You can't manipulate me, Rose Quartz!"
  • Depending on the Artist: In "The Return", her jaw is much larger, her Rapunzel Hair is slightly elevated, and her body type is slightly broader. In "Jail Break", her jawline is less defined, her hair is hanging loosely, and her body type is smaller.
  • Determinator: She says this is an inherent trait of being a Jasper.
    Jasper: Jaspers don't give up! Jaspers keep going until we get what we want!
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?:
    • Many of the interactions between Jasper and Lapis are reminiscent of a VERY unhealthy romantic relationship. After Malachite is broken apart, Jasper tracks down Lapis and begs her to fuse into Malachite again. When Jasper pressures Lapis Lazuli into fusing, it's reminiscent of someone pressuring a reluctant partner into physical intimacy. Likewise, her contracting the Corruption from fusing with a corrupted Gem is reminiscent of someone catching an STD from an infected partner.
    • A lot of her interactions with Steven in Future can be read as an Aloof Big Sister getting to know the little brother she blames for their mother's death. While Jasper starts out hating Steven for not living up to her high expectations, seeing him as a poor replacement for the Diamond she was created to protect, she begrudgingly spends time with him when he refuses to leave her alone. Eventually she agrees to mentor him to learn about his powers and even develops a sort of fondness for him (even if its so she can find a Worthy Opponent). When he eventually surpasses her, she becomes devastated when Steven rejects her company when her training ended up pushing him too far. By the series finale, she even tries to go with him on his road trip out of a new-found desire to protect him before forcing herself to acknowledge that she has taught him to protect himself.
  • Doomed Hometown: Earth, but specifically Earth-the-Gem-colony. She essentially views Rose Quartz as the person who destroyed her home and forced her into constant strife from the moment of her creation, which makes her stance on Earth far harder to change than Peridot's.
  • Dragged Off to Hell: This trope is invoked when Lapis fuses with her into Malachite and then forcibly drags them both down to the ocean floor as Malachite desperately tries to keep her grip onto the beach.
  • Dramatically Missing the Point: After spending a long time fused with Lapis under the sea, she comes to admit she was wrong about fusion and sees the use in it. But she only enjoys fusion for the extra power it provides, and fails to understand that the most important part of fusion is a loving (or at least emotionally stable) relationship between the component Gems. She doesn't understand when Lapis refuses to fuse with her again, not wanting to resume their abusive relationship, and she is ultimately transformed into a corrupted Gem when she fuses with one in a last-ditch attempt to regain the power she had as Malachite.
  • Dramatic Irony: Jasper has a grudge against Rose Quartz for shattering Pink Diamond, but in reality, Rose was Pink Diamond herself. Jasper is fighting the child of the one she is supposed to avenge, but doesn't know the truth behind the deception.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: Zigzagged. On the one hand, she's made peace with Steven and will defer to him as her "Diamond," finally coming to terms with her grief about Pink and Rose dying. On the other, Steven insists that she can't worship him or tag along, as he's not Pink Diamond and she should be free to make her own decisions. Even though Jasper is upset that she can't come along with him on his journey across the states, they will be in contact and friends at least.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good:
    • She at first sees the Fusion Dance as a mere power booster without understanding the deeper connection. When she tries to fuse with Lapis to even the odds, she didn't expect Lapis to betray her for Steven's sake.
    • In "Earthlings", while she manages to start figuring out how Rose, and now Steven, could gain the loyalty of other Gems, she can't get that friendship and kindness are the key, not manipulation.
  • Evil Counterpart:
    • To Amethyst in season 3. Both are hot-blooded, rude, brash Quartzes, who rely on brute strength and love to fight. But while Amethyst loves to goof off and has love and compassion for others, Jasper exists to fight, is always serious, and doesn't get the importance of love. She also shares Amethyst's hair style and is physically similar to her, but larger, and they both attack with a spin dash. To further push the matter, Jasper is colored yellow, complementary to Amethyst's purple. "Too Far" reveals that Jasper represents what a successful quartz should look like, while Amethyst is an "overcooked runt" that stayed in the ground too long, hence her short stature and comparatively weaker abilities. This comes to a head in "Crack the Whip", where they finally fight. Jasper, thanks to a combination of training and her superior capabilities, beats her down easily. "Beta" takes this even further by revealing that Jasper was also made on Earth, in the Beta Kindergarten. All the other holes are misshapen while hers is the only one that's perfect. And while Amethyst sees Jasper as her Arch-Enemy, Jasper views her with a sort of morbid curiosity.
      Amethyst: I can fight just fine.
      Jasper: Well then, let's see it!
      Jasper: You... could have been me.
    • To Garnet in the season 1 finale. Both are no-nonsense heavies and the bosses of their team, both prefer hand-to-hand combat and taking a hands-on approach to difficult situations, are confident in their capabilities, and can take a tremendous amount of physical punishment. Garnet is playful, maternal, and protective, her confidence coming from her being the result of a fusion of two Gems who are deeply in love, and she takes a tremendous amount of pride in being a permafusion, whereas Jasper is ruthless, savage, and short-tempered, treats fusion as "a cheap trick", and treats her allies as mere soldiers.
  • Evil Is Bigger: Jasper is larger than Garnet, Amethyst, Pearl, and Steven.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Though she's still a serious villain, she shows up on Earth in a Badass Cape just to look cool and almost all her lines are very intense and shouted. She gloats to her enemies, especially "Rose Quartz", whenever she can and even plans dramatic entries and exits.
  • Evil Is Petty: In Future, her hideout is the only barren patch of land in a forest because she tore out all the grass. And when Steven compliments a tower of rocks she made while training, she kicks it over to spite him specifically.
  • Evil Mentor: As Steven begins struggling with his more negative aspects in Future, he starts turning to Jasper to learn how to deal with them, which Jasper sees as a means to make Steven a Worthy Opponent. In "Little Homeschool", Steven only manages to connect in any way with Jasper by fighting her, and she only comes to respect him after he defeats her while using his Pink side. And in Fragments, Steven decides to undergo Training from Hell with Jasper so as to control said powers, only to become Drunk with Power and end up shattering Jasper.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: She has a noticeably gruff voice.
  • Eye Scream: When turning into a Gem monster, her eyes form stalagmites in her sockets.

    F-J 
  • Famous Last Words: "Wha... My Diamond! Your Diamond! PINK DIAMOND!!!" before getting corrupted and bubbled.
  • Fangs Are Evil: Gets drawn with these in "Earthlings"; appropriate for the events of that episode.
  • Fatal Flaw: After her fusion with Lapis, her obsession with fusion and the power it can bring becomes this. It backfires on her big time in "Earthlings", where her fusion with a corrupted Gem infects her with corruption as well.
  • Fate Worse than Death:
    • When she fuses with Lapis, Lapis takes control of the fusion and drags them both to the bottom of the ocean. Jasper is thus trapped under the ocean and inside her own body, and if "Chille Tid" is any indication this is not a pleasant experience.
    • Finally, when fighting Smoky Quartz, she fused with a corrupted Gem and was corrupted herself.
  • Final Boss: Of Season One.
  • Foil:
    • To Peridot. Peridot is an Era 2 Gem, made without any of the powers Jasper was born with or the amazing constitution Jasper boasts. While they're both incredibly durable, Peridot's physical toughness is played for laughs while Jasper's is always played dead serious. Building on this, Jasper is a Knight of Cerebus to Peridot's often laughably evil nature and own innate goofiness. Most importantly, Peridot was a Gem born on Homeworld that came to Earth and grew to love it dearly. Jasper was an Earth-made Gem that hated Earth with a passion, was fiercely loyal to Homeworld.
    • To Amethyst. Both were born to be soldiers, but Amethyst was grown in the Prime Kindergarten, which was properly planned and had all the right ingredients, yet she came out late, small, and underpowered. Jasper was bred in the Beta Kindergarten, which was a poorly planned rush job by Homeworld, and yet she still came out a perfect super soldier. Where Amethyst is laid back and friendly, Jasper is abusive and hateful.
    • To Eyeball. Both served Pink Diamond and mourn her, and both also tried to kill Steven. The difference is that Jasper stood down when the Diamonds ordered her not to attack Steven, and she was reasonable enough to hear the full explanation of what happened. What's more, she seems to understand that Steven was not to blame for what happened between them, finally sees that he's not his mother, and will help him with his problems even if she's not good at expressing her complicated feelings. Eyeball, in contrast, tried to murder Steven the minute she realized he was Rose Quartz reincarnated and has rebelled against Era 3 to get revenge on Steven. She left behind her Ruby Squad and probably most of her common sense. The one thing that can be said is that Jasper doesn't try to murder Steven off the bat and is finally willing to talk to him.
  • Forgiven, but Not Forgotten: She comes to this realization about Pink Diamond when Amethyst tells her the truth. As of Future, while she is obviously hurt that her Diamond lied to her and made her grieve for nothing, Jasper has no grudge against Pink for her more selfish and insensitive actions. She eventually sees Steven as a Redeeming Replacement, however, when Steven is frantically apologizing for shattering her during their combat training.
  • Forgotten Fallen Friend: In "The Trial" she's unmentioned despite Eyeball being allowed back on Homeworld without having completed her mission of retrieving Jasper.
  • Freudian Excuse: Was literally fighting a war from the moment she was born, a war that was halfway over before she was born at that. She's had it ingrained in her head that the planet she was born on is worthless because the Hostile Terraforming the Gems attempted on it never finished, and like Peridot is more or less indoctrinated to worship the Diamonds fanatically. The loss of Pink Diamond and Earth as her home colony made her fanatically homicidal and gunning for revenge on Rose Quartz, now reincarnated as her son, Steven. She mellows in Future when actually talking with Steven and dealing with her mixed feelings about Pink Diamond's deception.
  • Fusion Dance: Fuses with Lapis Lazuli at the end of "Jail Break" and the Green Alpine Monster in the climax of "Earthlings".
  • Gender-Blender Name: "Jasper", as a human name, is typically given to boys.
  • Graceful Loser: Played With. Jasper absolutely resents losing to fusions or any other multiple vs one match ups, but she's outright giddy when Steven manages to beat her on her terms.
  • Guttural Growler: She speaks with a gravelly alto voice.
  • Hartman Hips: She has prominent wide hips.
  • Hazy Feel Turn: In Era 3, Jasper accepts that Homeworld and the Crystal Gems are at peace, while the military she served no longer exists. However, she still lives to fight and hates Steven and everything he's worked for. After Steven agrees to fight Jasper on her terms, she ends up respecting him and eventually swearing loyalty to him... because he (almost) killed her. The series ends with Jasper nominally an ally of Steven, but still caught up in her toxic mindset of respecting nothing but power. He promises that they're friends at least, and she accepts that reluctantly.
  • Heel–Face Turn: She finally pledges loyalty to Steven when he accidentally shatters and revives her by accident. While he's horrified and apologetic, refusing to accept her loyalty, Jasper forgives him and later on, they make peace with each other at least.
  • Hellish Pupils: Subtle and downplayed. Her eyes are naturally yellow, but several times the irises and pupils appear elongated, especially when she flashes her Slasher Smile.
  • A Hero To Her Hometown: If the Ruby Squad is any indication, Jasper was still a highly respected member of the Gem warrior caste, as many of them positively fangirl at the idea of being around her. She most likely gets along better with other Warrior gems.
  • Hey, You!: Jasper calls Steven "Rose Quartz", mentions Yellow Diamond, her apparent superior, and Pink Diamond, her former superior, and calls Lapis by her name only when trying to persuade her into fusion. Otherwise, she never bothers to use anyone's name, calling Pearl "some lost, defective pearl", Amethyst an "overcooked runt", Garnet a "shameless display", Lapis a "brat", and Peridot just "this one". This is taken to a terrifying extent when she recognizes Steven in the dreamscape in "Chille Tid", and her furious utterances of "You!" becomes a Madness Mantra. Amusingly, in Future, she still won't call Steven by name even after swearing loyalty to him, as she'll only address him as "my Diamond".
  • Hidden Depths: In "Earthlings", she reveals her insecurities and her feelings about being from Earth.
  • Hoist by Her Own Petard:
    • Garnet uses Jasper's own momentum to toss her into the ship's power core.
    • Turns out pressuring Lapis to fuse with her was also a bad move, as it gave Lapis an opportunity to use a rather inventively brutal means of capturing her.
    • She ends up getting corrupted herself after fusing with a corrupted Gem.
  • Horned Humanoid: When she's healed of the Corruption, she retains two blue horns on her head.
  • Horns of Villainy: Inverted. She had no horns while she was a villain, but becomes a Horned Humanoid when she gets uncorrupted while at the same time going through a Hazy Feel Turn.
  • Hypocrite: Her attitude toward fusion changes rather quickly after Garnet defeats her, yet she still continues to belittle others for not following Homeworld's rules after she's done so herself. This goes away as of Future where her bigger concern is processing how Homeworld and Earth have changed.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: After her corruption, she gets poofed when Peridot uses her metal powers to impale her with a metal rod.
  • Implacable Woman: She is very, very hard to stop. Whether it's sinking into the earth's mantle or being thrown several miles across the ocean, she will come back, just as determined as ever.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Her weapon is a helmet.
  • Inertia Is a Cruel Mistress: Garnet defeats her by redirecting her own momentum to send her into the ship's power core.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: While she is normally very self-assured, she places all of her self-worth in her fighting ability, and she tends to come unglued in situations where her strength comes into question. After losing to Garnet, she immediately shifts gears and claims that it was not a fair fight because her opponent is a fusion, even after mocking the tactic just before. She also tries to cling to Lapis to make herself feel stronger, both before and after forming Malachite. Considering the fact that she was the only and most perfect Gem of a Kindergarten that was made solely for the purpose of Cannon Fodder for the war, it's highly likely she puts so much emphasis on her fighting ability because that's the only reason she exists.
  • In-Universe Catharsis: She becomes slightly warmer towards Steven after they spar, and he learns about a new power that defeats her. Jasper has been spoiling for a fight to avenge "Pink", even if the truth is more complicated than a simple shattering. While Jasper refuses to become Steven's sparring teacher, she does say she won't stop him from visiting.
  • Ironic Hell: Derides Garnet for being a perma-fusion. Gets stuck as one for several months. Later becomes infected with The Corruption after forcefully fusing with a corrupted gem to win a battle... against another fusion.
  • Ironic Name: Jasper stones are associated with earth, stability and tranquility. Jasper here is a Hot-Blooded brute who invades Earth, and later appearances in the show see her becoming more and more unhinged.
  • It's Personal: Her loathing toward "this miserable planet" sure takes on a different color once it is revealed to be her place of origin, and it turns out she really hates Rose for killing their former liege, Pink Diamond. After she finds out the truth, Jasper still hasn't processed that her Diamond lied to her, faked her death and became a rebel leader.
  • Jerkass: She is overall a hostile, intentionally rude, callous, Arrogant Kung Fu Girl who looks down on nearly everyone, except Rose Quartz. Her introduction has her taking turns individually insulting the Crystal Gems before deciding collectively they're not worth her time. She's notably a jerk even to her own allies, ensuring that even pre-redemption Peridot couldn't stand her. Ironically enough, it's Peridot who's the one to ultimately defeat her.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: While she is just as prickly as she was back in the original series, her "Reason You Suck" Speech for Steven in "Little Homeschool" is dead on about a lot of Steven's personal foibles, like believing everyone needs his help and will accept it without question, that he's never really been able to beat her without outside help, and he arguably needs help more than anybody else in the series does. Steven only agrees with her that they haven't fought one on one.
    • This is proven even further after "Little Graduation" and "Prickly Pair", which shows that Steven struggling with everything around him changing, leaving him Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life. She's actually completely accurate in that he's the only one that needs help anymore.
    • While her advice in Fragments is obviously not healthy, she does raise a good point. Steven does need to learn how to control his pink form and new powers before he does something irrevocably terrible.
  • The Juggernaut: Electrocute her, drown her in the ocean floor, punch her miles across the ocean, it won't stop her for long. It says volumes that it takes her being corrupted into a Gem Monster for the Crystal Gems to defeat her once and for all.

    K-O 
  • Karmic Transformation:
    • In "Earthlings", Jasper has spent who knows how long capturing and abusing Corrupted Gems to try and force them to be her personal army, especially the one she forced to fuse with her, while demeaning them, calling them weak failures. In the end, forcing one to fuse with causes her to contract the Corruption, turning her into a mindless Gem Monster just like them.
    • Even after being cured, the remnants of her transformation leave Jasper as one of the "off colors" she so despises.
  • Kick the Dog: In "Crack the Whip", Jasper suplexes a corrupted Gem to prevent it from running away from a fight. By this point in the show, it's pretty much established that the corrupted Gems are unfortunate victims to be pitied. At the same time, Jasper's doing this to a giant yeti monster the size of a small house, so it also serves to show how dangerous Jasper can be.
  • King Mook: She's the "perfect" ultimate Quartz, making her considerably stronger than the rank and file Quartz soldiers. She's capable of fighting Garnet one on one.
  • Knight of Cerebus: She's the first sentient enemy that Steven didn't try to befriend or reach out to. Unlike Lapis, who had a positive introduction, and Peridot, who was foremost concerned with her mission, Jasper is introduced as a pure aggressor, expressing contempt towards the Crystal Gems and disappointment that Rose Quartz wasn't there for her to fight. The battle with her has lasting impact, with Steven finally realizing how serious his Gem powers and the conflict with the Homeworld Gems is.
  • Large and in Charge: She is taller and beefier than Garnet, and commands the mission in the season 1 finale.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After chastising the other Crystal Gems, especially Amethyst, Jasper ends up transforming into a weaker Gem and defeated by the "Shorty Squad".
  • Leitmotif: She's represented by a distorted bass sound. "Jasper" has a recurring harsh beat that sounds like an army on the march.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Even stronger than Garnet, the Crystal Gems' main bruiser — and no slouch in the speed department, able to stay virtually on top of Garnet the entire fight and rush her several times with a destructive charge attack. Her downfall in "Jail Break" came because she was going Too Fast to Stop and Garnet used her momentum against her, as well as a convenient power core.
  • Likes Clark Kent, Hates Superman: She adores and is fanatically loyal to Pink Diamond but loathes Rose Quartz, unaware they were the same person.
  • Little Bit Beastly: After her corruption is cured, she still has horns and some greenish patches on her skin.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: Her status as Lapis's emotional stress ball/punching bag for her anger at what had happened to her. This is Deconstructed naturally in that this form of emotional "stability" turns out to be toxic for both Lapis and Jasper due to them being archenemies.
  • Long Hair Is Feminine: Inverted even harder than with Amethyst. Jasper's hair is longer than any other non-fusion Gem's (proportionally, it's about equal to Amethyst), and she's an outright brute.
  • Mask of Sanity: The first few episodes we see her, "The Return" and "Jail Break", paint her as a stern, yet relatively reasonable individual for the most part. Then the mask slowly fades away near the end of the latter episode, and it's all but gone after the Malachite fiasco.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • While the spiritual nature of jasper in gemology contrasts highly with the character (see Ironic Name above), it is also associated with the planet Mars, fitting for someone who is as militant and aggressive as Jasper.
    • She's Hot-Blooded, ill-tempered, unpredictable and unstable, gives off a fiery Battle Aura and emerged out of the ground burning so hot that her exit hole turned to glass. Real life jaspers are typically formed from volcanic ash.
    • In addition to being a variety of quartz, jasper contains impurities from organic substances, so it's especially appropriate that she was made on Earth. With her firmly holding Homeworld's views on Earth and organic life, this also makes it an Ironic Name.
  • Might Makes Right: Being a quartz soldier with a fanatic belief in Homeworld's Fantastic Caste System, Jasper firmly believes in the idea that only "perfect gems" like her have any right to exist. She sees fusion as a crutch to "make weak gems stronger" and refuses to acknowledge that the Crystal Gems beat her because none of them could ever surpass her without fusion and other "cheap-tricks". In Future, she is one of the only gems holding on to the old ways, refusing to acknowledge Steven's philosophy of peace and love because he is a human weakling and is therefor unworthy of her respect. Eventually this philosophy reaches its natural conclusion in "Fragments" when he earns her respect by accidentally shattering her.
  • Mistaken Identity: She believes Steven is Rose Quartz.
  • Mook Carryover: Jasper was originally created to serve Pink Diamond, but after Rose Quartz shattered her, Jasper was transferred to Yellow Diamond's forces.
  • Ms. Exposition: Her casual comments about the Rebellion, Rose Quartz and the Diamond Authority have made her this to the fanbase.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: While Gems generally operate with Super Strength that can be disproportionate to their looks, Jasper is the physically strongest seen in early seasons, and the most muscular.
  • Never Found the Body: The Crystal Gems see Jasper falling down a massive crack in the Earth, and are left with no way of finding her until she resurfaces.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: Jasper is extremely tough and hard to damage, even by Gem standards. Even getting thrown into the power core of a spaceship, resulting in the core exploding, which then causes the ship to crash and also explode, isn't enough to reduce her to Gem form. Against the Crystal Gems, only Garnet and other fusions stand a chance of defeating her. The ease at which other Quartz have been shown being poofed in comparison (Garnet and Bismuth alone are apparently sufficient to handle several platoons of Quartz soldiers on their own, Pearl being shown as curbstomping two, and Amethyst being the most frequently poofed Crystal Gem by her own admission) imply this might be unique to her as a "perfect" Quartz. When she is finally poofed, it's only after she's been corrupted into a weaker Gem monster. After being healed, Steven sends her flying through an entire row of trees with his Pink power up and slams her into the ground so hard she's buried in it, but Jasper is more elated than hurt. In fact, it took Steven, who has the powers of a Diamond, using his full unrestrained power to finally shatter her gem. Even if he found a way to fix her gem and bring her back, it still stands that the only thing that could shatter her was basically the power of a GOD!
  • No Indoor Voice: She yells almost everything she says, and when she isn't shouting, her voice is still harsh and intense.
  • Non-Humans Lack Attributes: There's no way the plunging neckline of her uniform would have been accepted if her chest wasn't totally featureless.
  • Nonstandard Character Design: Her eyes are noticeably less cartoony and more detailed than the Sphere Eyes the rest of the cast have. Ironically, despite being more masculine-looking than any other female (or male) character, she's the only one with normally visible eyelashes. Some of her facial expressions are more detailed than is typical, especially her Slasher Smile.
  • Not Quite Back to Normal: Even after her corruption is cured, she still has green patches and horns.
  • No-Sell: In "Earthlings", despite her training, Amethyst's best whip attacks can't do anything more than make Jasper flinch. Even a fully charged Rolling Attack that was strong enough to cause a small explosion does little more than scuff her chest.
  • Not So Different: Both Jasper and Lapis turn out to have enjoyed some aspect of Malachite, the general Power High and Flight capability for Jasper and using Jasper as a living stress ball and punching bag for Lapis. Both, in part, miss each other after being defused.
  • Not Worth Killing: Zig-zagged. She came to Earth to finish Rose off, but is disgusted to see Rose in a weaker form as Steven, and decides to capture "Rose" back to Homeworld instead. After that fails, she still never attacks Steven, until her Sanity Slippage ensues in the Malachite realm and later Lapis rejects fusing again, which causes Jasper to attempt shattering Steven in a fit of rage. After that, Jasper goes back to her old ways and tries to create her own army and a complicated plan to take down the Crystal Gems instead of shattering Rose.
  • One Riot, One Ranger: She is the only fighter sent to take on the Crystal Gems at the end of season 1.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business:
    • Her reaction just before Pink Steven shatters her with a giant pink spiked barrier with a Slasher Smile? To gasp. In horror.
    • Following above, when Steven tells her to "do something with her life" in "Homeworld Bound" she looks pitiful.

    P-T 
  • Painful Transformation: Judging by her reaction, it's safe to say that the process of corruption is an agonizing experience.
  • Percussive Therapy: After she and Steven spar for sport, Jasper starts pounding Steven's shield while calling him out for thinking he can help everyone when he can't even help himself and expects that kindness will just win. When he blows her through a dozen trees and wins, she's laughing from exhilaration and relief.
  • Power High: Once she breaks free from Lapis's control as Malachite, she comes to enjoy it immensely.
  • Principles Zealot: If she isn't stalking all across the water for Lapis Lazuli, or trying to get revenge on Rose Quartz for what she's done to her, she's preaching the principles Homeworld has instilled on her since birth, whether people want to listen or not.
  • Proud Warrior Race Girl: She is firmly of the belief that Quartz Gems are made to fight and should live for it, thus why she's a Blood Knight. It's also why she throws a fit whenever she loses to someone she views as inferior to her. She considers Amethyst a disgrace to Quartzes due to her defective status and how poor of a fight she gave her, and "Beta" implies this is especially tempered by the fact she was the only (and in fact most) perfect Gem to emerge from the Beta Kindergarten.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes down approximately to her knees and is very voluminous, like all Quartz Gems.
  • A Real Man Is a Killer: Throughout Future, she refuses to acknowledge Steven as anything more than an enemy and a weakling undeserving of her time and energy because he defies her expectations as a Diamond and a Worthy Opponent. It takes him shattering her by accident for her to finally recognize him as either, much to his shame.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech:
    • In her battle with Amethyst, Jasper calls her a disgrace for being a defective Quartz and wondered how Roze Quartz tolerated her. When Amethyst says back that Rose loved her just as she was, Jasper dismissively says Rose had low standards before poofing Amethyst.
    • She gives one to Steven later in Steven Universe Future. When they get into a fight after Jasper refused to join Little Homeschool, she throws Steven's earlier claims of having always beaten her back in his face, pointing out that he's never beaten her alone. Since he was always fused with someone in those fights, she denounces him as being weak and helpless, claiming that for all his talk about wanting to help people, he's the only one pitiful enough to always need help.
  • Redemption Rejection: She completely refuses Steven's attempt to heal her corruption due to her hatred of Rose. Sugar had this to say about Jasper during an interview with the Wrap.
    Jasper is very different than Peridot and Lapis. Unlike them, she has a deep hate for herself because of her origins on Earth. She is determined to never be weak or vulnerable. So at the point when she's the lowest, there's no way she'd ever accept help, because she believes she doesn't deserve it.
  • Rejected Apology: As she's becoming corrupted, Steven tries to apologize for what Rose supposedly did, and even offers to try and heal Jasper while her corruption's on her way. Jasper immediately rejects "Rose Quartz's" apology and offering to help, instead opting to call her out for all the pain "she" made her suffer in her last moments of consciousness.
  • Revenge:
    • She attempts to shatter Steven in retaliation for Lapis rejecting her choice to fuse back into Malachite.
    • She hates Rose Quartz for shattering Pink Diamond and preventing the Earth from being colonized. The irony is, Rose is Pink Diamond.
  • Revenge Before Reason: Jasper so is angered by always being defeated by fusions and desperate to finally make "Rose Quartz" pay for everything she's done during the Rebellion, she fuses with a corrupted Gem, ending up causing her own corruption.
  • Rogue Agent: After defusing from Lapis, Jasper went completely rogue, abandoning her mission and not even attempting to contact Homeworld nor the agents sent to look out for her.
  • Rolling Attack: Uses a similar version to Amethyst's, only with a Battle Aura.
  • Sanity Slippage:
    • If her appearance in Malachite's mindscape in "Chille Tid" is any indication, any stability Jasper had left seems to be eroding under her imprisonment by Lapis.
    • In "Alone at Sea", she has become obsessed with fusion, begging Lapis to become Malachite with her again.
    • She seemed to actually be getting better in "Gem Hunt" and "Crack the Whip", forming a coherent plan and pursuing some objective.
    • Unfortunately for her, she ultimately totally loses it in "Earthlings" after trying to fuse with a corrupted Gem during her fight with Smoky Quartz. Steven not knowing about what Rose did to Pink Diamond is the final push that turns her into a mindless corrupted Gem herself.
  • Sealed Evil in a Duel: Lapis fuses with her and traps them both under the ocean in a constant Battle in the Center of the Mind.
  • Shut Up, Kirk!: Jasper refuses Steven's help curing her corruption, thinking that Rose Quartz is trying to prey on her weakness like all her other misfit recruits.
  • Slasher Smile: If she's not wearing a look of contempt, she's wearing this.
  • Smug Super: She is legitimately powerful even by her Gem type's already impressive standards, and at first wants Peridot to just shoot the Crystal Gems with the ship's main gun because she thinks they're not worth her time.
  • The Social Darwinist: She derides fusion as a tactic for weak Gems, and derides Amethyst as an "overcooked runt" and Pearl as "defective". In "Earthlings", she makes a speech about how Gems who are of no use to the Diamonds should be purged, and believes Gems falling to misfortune such as corruption are getting what they deserve.
  • Sore Loser: As she bases her entire worth on being a warrior, she cannot accept losing. Being defeated by Garnet started her obsession with increasing her personal power with fusion and army building that eventually lead to her downfall. Part of her Character Development is when she is a Graceful Loser about Steven beating her in a friendly sparring match.
  • Sour Outside, Sad Inside: As of Steven Universe: Future she is this with the knowledge that her Diamond lied to her and the other members of her army, faked her death, and then died for real. Jasper, being Jasper, refuses to talk about her trauma but her actions speak louder; she's taken residence in an isolated piece of land, training for a war that may never come. Steven shattering her actually made her more willing to listen to him.
  • Sparing the Aces: Is notably the one Earthborn Gem that Yellow Diamond took into her court, let alone gave a high rank and allowed to be seen as a war hero. Given the rest were all Reassigned to Antarctica or bubbled, and solely because Blue Diamond wanted to keep them, this implies Yellow Diamond valued a completely perfect and extremely rare "ultimate Quartz" enough to overlook her hatred of Earth and everything that came from it.
  • Springtime for Hitler: Heavily implied. Jasper's birthplace, the Beta Kindergarten, was an utter hash job that produced many inferior gems, which was almost certainly done on purpose by Pink Diamond, who wanted the war against Rose's Rebellion to fail. By some fluke, Jasper emerged as a top-quality quartz anyways.
  • Stockholm Syndrome: After her hellish experience imprisoned under the ocean for months, upon being freed she's obsessed with fusing back with Lapis.
  • Strength Equals Worthiness: In Future, she finally shows some amount of respect for Steven when he manages to put up an even fight one-on-one.
  • Super Soldier: "Beta" reveals that she's far more advanced than Quartz soldiers usually are, despite coming from a shoddily-made batch of gems. Peridot goes so far as to call her "the ultimate Quartz".
  • Super Strength: She is stronger than Garnet and shatters pieces of Peridot's ship with her blows.
  • Symbolic Mutilation: When she is corrupted, her eyes are painfully covered, blinding her.
  • Technicolor Eyes: While most characters on the show have simple eyes with no distinction between pupil and iris, Jasper has more detailed, piercing yellow eyes that the storyboarders seem to like to zoom in on.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Jasper's personality leaves a lot to be desired, and both Lapis and Peridot are vocally annoyed about having to work with her.
  • There's No Place Like Home: Jasper has a dark form of homesickness for Earth. She was created there for the sake of putting down the Rebellion, and thus viewed war in the name of destructive colonization as Fighting for a Homeland. Then Homeworld abandoned all plans for colonizing Earth, instead intending to destroy it. Now Jasper still considers Earth to be "[her] planet", but despises it because it will never be what she wanted it to be — what she was born to make it.
  • This Cannot Be!: Doesn't take losing to Garnet well at all, trying to rationalize it that she only lost because Garnet was a fusion. This extends to Stevonnie and Smoky Quartz.
  • Tomboyish Name: Like every other Gem, she's named for a type of jewel, but Jasper is also a male given name (whose etymology is actually unrelated to the stonenote ).
  • Tragic Villain: At the end of "Earthlings", we can see Jasper is essentially another victim of the Diamonds' cruel regime: she is created for one purpose (to fight) and incapable of believing she's anything but a soldier for them. Despite her status as the "perfect" specimen and mocking of Amethyst, Amethyst is strong because of those she loves standing with her while Jasper is alone and incredibly lonely. And her inability to believe in Steven's kindness and her insane devotion to the Diamonds results in her corruption and bubbling.
    • Even more tragic when you consider she's The Lost Lenore, and misses Pink Diamond very badly, utterly despising Rose for taking her mistress away from her.
    • Absolutely tragic since Rose IS Pink Diamond and had no possible way of knowing. Jasper is the "ultimate Quartz" that Homeworld admires and strives for in Gem-making. But Pink (in the guise of Rose) regarded Amethyst as her ultimate creation. A Gem free to live her life on Earth, free from having to know about her origins, Homeworld, or the terrible war.
  • Tranquil Fury: After Peridot tells her that she's a Crystal Gem, she shows very little expression, but her summoning her weapon makes it clear that she would've attacked her if she hadn't gotten sidetracked by Steven and Amethyst.
  • Troubled Abuser: Jasper is callous, aggressive, and dismissive towards just about every character in the series and won't hesitate to get physical with them. The one exception is Lapis after they fuse, as she is eager to re-enter their toxic and abusive relationship yet again. As time goes on the show goes on to demonstrate that Jasper suffers from a huge inferiority complex, an innate feeling of loneliness, and a need to avenge her Diamond.
  • Tyke Bomb: While Gems are physically Born as an Adult, she was essentially born fighting a war... and her personality reflects this.

    U-Y 
  • Ultimate Life Form: When we see the hole she came out of, it's enormous; Peridot inspects it and says that it's the most perfect exit hole she's ever seen, concluding that Jasper's "the ultimate Quartz". Stories about Quartz soldiers during the war and the fact she seems more powerful than a Topaz (which are explicitly higher ranked than she is) imply this comes with being way stronger than a normal Quartz has any right to be.
  • Undying Loyalty: She was originally made for Pink Diamond, and remains devoted to avenging her thousands of years after her death. Even after learning Pink and Rose were the same person that that Pink had faked her shattering, Jasper still refers to Pink Diamond as her Diamond.
  • Use Your Head: Since her weapon is a helmet, she just headbutts everything in her way.
  • Villain: Exit, Stage Left:
    • In "Gem Hunt", once Jasper has the two poofed Gems, she exits without fighting Pearl, Steven, and Connie.
    • In "Crack the Whip", she retreats into the ocean when it becomes apparent Stevonnie is a tougher adversary than she thought.
  • Villainous Breakdown: She has an epic one just before she turns into a Gem Monster; she realizes that Steven, whom she thought was Rose in a new form this entire time, has no clue who Pink Diamond is. This revelation was bad enough that it made her completely lose her grasp on sanity and turn into a Gem Monster proper.
  • Villainous Rescue: In "Gem Hunt", she rescues Steven and Connie from a Gem monster, but only did so to claim the gem from the monster for her plan to build her own Gem army.
  • Villainous Virtues: As awful and monstrous a person she is, one thing can't be taken away from her: she's determined. And loyal to the end, as she was for Pink Diamond.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: She is seen as a big war hero back on Homeworld.
  • Visual Pun: She's both hard-headed and hard-nosed.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss:
    • She easily lays waste to the Gems the moment she arrives on Earth, even poofing Garnet. She's also the first threat that wakes Steven up to the real dangers of Gem stuff and shows him that he can't expect to redeem opponents so easily.
    • Amethyst learns the hard way that she can't keep relying on being Unskilled, but Strong after being pummeled and nearly shattered by Jasper.
  • Walking Spoiler: In the same vein as Peridot and Lapis.
  • Weapon of Choice: She uses a helmet to bash enemies with her own head. Jasper has always been stubborn and would rather face down her opponent head on with all her might.
  • We Can Rule Together: She offers Lapis a chance to get revenge on the Crystal Gems by fusing with her. Lapis accepts and then uses the chance to chain and imprison them both as Malachite beneath the ocean.
  • When She Smiles: She gives a genuine smile for the first time in "Little Homeschool," and it's oddly heartwarming to see.
  • Where I Was Born and Razed: Her dismissive comments of Earth become a lot more disturbing with the reveal she was born there.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: She was already pretty unstable, what with being the perfect Quartz and the insanely high expectations such status brought, but any sort of stability or sanity left in Jasper completely vanished the moment Malachite happened...
  • Worthy Opponent:
    • Although on opposing sides, she respects Rose Quartz as a military commander and accompanied Peridot on the off chance they could battle again. In fact, she seems to be the only Gem besides the Diamonds she has any respect for. Though she loses some of this respect after learning Rose has turned into a "dulled-down version" (i.e. Steven).
    • She may see Lapis as this too; when Malachite finally breaks her chains, the first thing Jasper says is, "I'm impressed, you really held out." It turns out to go beyond this and then subverted, with Jasper developing Stockholm Syndrome for Lapis and wanting to be together.
    • In Future, she finally starts viewing Steven as this, as he's the only non-fused gems who's agreed to fight with her after the war ended and matched her blow for blow.
  • You're Not My Father: A variant. In the first episode of Steven Universe: Future, she finally acknowledges Steven as separate from Rose/Pink, but only to tell him he isn't her Diamond. Jasper does ultimately accept Steven as her Diamond... after he nearly kills her.
