Steven's theory made me think of werewolves, alternating between monster and humanoid form.... maybe every monster sighting ever was actually people seeing corrupted Gems over the centuries and spinning legends about  fantastic beasts.  I could see mistaking that shaggy brute for a Sasquatch easily.

maybe there the concious gem inside trying to fight for control against her beast side and in the end it is a battle of what is stronger.
