Hello, Starlight. You certainly gave everyone a scare.
|—"Legs From Here to Homeworld"|
White Diamond is a Homeworld Gem and a member of the Great Diamond Authority that rules over the Gem race. She is the superior of all Gems, including her fellow Diamonds, and has not left the Gem Homeworld in eons. She made her debut in "Legs From Here to Homeworld".
White Diamond has white spiky hair in a shape similar to a star pentagon and white skin. She is shown to be larger than her fellow Diamonds. Like the other Diamonds, she has diamond-shaped pupils, but hers are white instead of black, and she has large, full, black eyelashes. Her gemstone is embedded in her forehead.
She wears a long white dress that reaches the floor and splits on the sides to expose her legs, shoulder pads, and a pair of intricately detailed dress sandals with high heels. She also wears a cape with black and gray stripes that is lined with diamond and star designs.
White Diamond is unique in that her body constantly radiates a bright light. Due to this, her facial features (aside from her eyes, nostrils, and mouth) and gemstone are not visible. A drawing by Rebecca Sugar, however, does show these missing details.
White Diamond possesses standard Gem abilities, but since she is a Diamond, her abilities are expected to be much greater than that of other Gems.
- Aura Projection: The Diamonds can project an aura around them that they can control, they can either radiate it from their entire bodies or emit it from specific parts of their bodies, usually their hands. Not much has been shown of White nor her aura, but during the Diamonds' final attack against the Crystal Gems, White's aura was shown around her hand as a solid white corona-like flare around it.
