  • The beta kindergarten was set down in the worst logical environment for gem production; a desert. Despite feeding off of organic life, homeworld, in their desperation for more soldiers, made the horrible and completely illogical decision of setting up the beta kindergarten in the middle of a desert, a biome that lacked FAR more organic life by default compared to other places on earth. As a result of this misstep, the beta kindergarten was a failure. Every single gem that came out of it was deformed and defective on some level, lacking the proper nutrients and resources they needed from their environment, and failing to reach their full genetic potential as a result. All the gems from the beta kindergarten were below average at best; all accept for one Jasper...but why? Why was it that despite everything missing from that environment, and despite all the gems that failed to develop properly, Jasper managed to not only be better than her fellow beta's, but went so far as to be essentially perfect, and better than even gems we've seen from the prime kindergarten? Well, there's actually a very sinister possibility...

    Some creatures in nature are born killers and survivors by default. Lemon sharks are just one example of creatures where before the young are even truly born, they have to fight for their right to exist. Lemon shark pups devour each other in their mothers womb, the strongest one or two pups ultimately gaining strength from devouring their unborn siblings, and being birthed fully developed and independent, significantly increasing their chances of surviving on their own. Scarily enough, this may just be the same reason why Jasper came out "perfect", and perhaps why the other beta kindergarteners came out as "wrong" as they did. It's possible that with such limited resources, the growing gems were forced to compete for nutrition while they were developing, and unltimately, possibly from a lucky head start, Jasper ended up taking all of the organic matter in the vicinity before the other gems could. This would make sense, as in the prime kindergarten, there were more than enough resources for the developing gems, and therefore there was no need for competition. This would also explain why we haven't seen a perfect amythest from earth; every gem in the prime kindergarten got an even share of resources, no more, no less, and the lack of competition meant they all came out about "average".

    Now of course, this is all just speculation, but it legitimately seems to me like this might be the case. But it's really just a theory, so I could be wrong. Although, I know we're not going to get a definitive answer regardless, so it's anyone's guess.

    • Well cannon says that gems need the good stuff from the ground, not the organic life, also, in kindergarten kid you can note theres some plants near Beta

      I made a theory about that last statement involving that maybe PD figured out dessert plants could survive a new kindergarten so she could create more soldiers to fight the rebellion without hurting the planet a lot (5% progress in 1000 years even with a rebellion sounds suspicious)

    • I think Jasper, more or less, was a 'perfect storm'. Gems prior to being 'made' are just concentrations of non-organic minerals. It would make sense for homeworld to create Kindergartens based on areas that have the highest potential, hence why the prime and beta kindergartens were so far apart.

      Prime was the first kindergarten and started in peace time which means that the gems made from there are less likely to be defective because they were given equal time and attention.

      Beta, as explained in the story, was a total rush job. Most gems created there would not have been given time to form properly as homeworld desperately needed more soldiers to fight off the rebellion. This would well mean that they managed to create only one high-quality soldier there and have gems that could be made quicker to fill the demand for quantity. Maybe Jasper did get much more resources dedicated to her as well, but this would have probably been at the discretion of the kindergartner who was in charge of that operation and probably even lucked out to get a gem of such high quality.

    • How did the off-colors amethysts and jaspers survive the war?

      Skinny Jasper could be dead by now but she somehow survived.

      Here's what I think, shortly before the final battle the Famethyst was gathered up by Blue Diamond because they were going to unleash a final attack that would corrupt all Gems

    • What if Jasper is an off-color too?

      She is different to the other Jaspers, right?

        Loading editor
    • Maybe she can be considered one? If Off Colors are considered abnormal by Homeworld standards and a Gem with a perfect exit hole, like Jasper, are so rare that Peridot hadn't seen one then maybe that would make her an Off Color but since she's so useful Homeworld keeps her around.

      I'd say she's the exact opposite.

      An off-colour is a Gem that's defective, as in they came out with a defect that makes them weaker and lesser useful then other Gems of their kind. Amethest and Carelian where short, Skinny had less muscle mass, Paddy had delayed future vision and the Rutile twins where conjoined.

      Jasper on the other hand came out bigger and stronger then a regular quartz, so she was an impovement on jaspers, which is possibly why YD decided to keep her as one of her best soilder instead of letting BD keep her in the zoo with the others.

      we are at the "Steven is back" arc* the Lars in space arc goes after that one

      i don't even know if that should be called arc, it's more like the PD's death arc since Jasper shout "My diamond your diamond etc" and the major events are kinda related to it (bubbled, zoo, trial)

    • well, the newest character introduced there was Mr. Frowney ._.

      But think about it, when they introduced Blued Diamond we only get that she liked to shatter gems (basically, I KNOW IT WAS BECAUSE FUSION AND BLAH BLAH BLAH)

      And now, she is a character we can only feel sorry about, because, the rest of the characters actually give us more feelings than "omg, poor her, she is so sad" something is weird there

      I mean, we know she is a villain, but, why should we feel sorry for her everytime she appears? is she faking? (talking about faking, the way she responds in the trial seems faked)

      i don't know but The Roundtable is right about she being best plotwist at least XD

      It's good until he starts with his PD is an off-colour and his other theories to explain himself the why, we don't have enough clues for the why, the theory was good just like that :c
