  • Hello. Here's a theory about my favourite Off Color Rutile.

    In this theory I'm going to talk about what Rutiles are made for on Homeworld. But be warned, it is abit dark, but also kind of heartwarmingly ironic as well.

    One thing I never understood (and never bothered to question) is the twins backstory. Acoroding to them, they wearn't supposed to live, but they did because the other Rutiles ran away? What? So if the other Rutiles didn't run they would have died? Where the other Rutiles going to kill the twins, but were scared off before they could?!

    Also, I have heard theories that Rutiles were meant to be scouts so something like that. The twins seemed to be patroling Homewords underground and were able to find Steven and Lars, but what if theres another job they did?

    Going with the pharagraphs above I have come with with one conclusion. Rutiles were designed to seek out and shatter other Gems. More specificaly, Off-color gems. another thing to note is that when they first discover Steven and Lars. they assume they must be Off-color gems. 

    Steven It's okay Lars. Thank you for saving us.
    Rutile Twins How bizarre! What are they? They certainly don't look like Gems we've ever seen before.

    My guess is that Rutiles have the power to detect abnormaties in Gems (In Stevens case, bring half human). However, they use there power to help save off colors rather then hunt them down and kill them.

    What about the Robonoids?

    Well, if there anything like Peridots robonoids then they will be Era 2 thecnology. It's confirmed that during Era 2 Homeworld is low on recourses to make fully powerful Gems, but that doesn't nessicerily mean that every Era 1 Gem has an Era 2 gem counterpart. Maybe, instead of makeing Era 2 Rutiles, they simply ceased producion in them and made the shattering robonoids instead.


    So that's my theory. Rutiles are exacutioners designed to seek out and destroy off color Gems. But what do you think?

      I know right.

      But like I said, how would them running away make them live? Unless the others were going to kill them?

      Simple the other Rutiles ran in one direction and the Twins ran in the opposite direction.

      Anyways I do think the idea of Rutiles being scouts is correct seeing as how the Twins were met doing just that and seemed to do that a lot. However I don't think it was to shatter Gems rather I think Rutiles are the scouts of the armies.

      So, let me get this straigh. Your answer to my question is. The normal rutiles ran away, so when the kindergarteners went to collect the Rutiles the normal ones where in one group but the twins where far away, so they got overlooked and where left behind. Is that what your saying?

      More like normal rutiles running scared and our rutile knowing that she is going to die also runs scared

      According to your theory she is self aware of her defectiveness and also wants to live

      Yeah but it's also possible that the kindergarteners tried to find the Twins but over time they gave up the search
