Defenders of the Universe is a spin-off television series of Steven Universe. The show takes place after the events of Steven and the Kids Next Door.


After Steven decides to rejoin the Kids Next Door, he leaves the Crystal Gems' ship, and his unannounced departure leaves the Crystal Gems distraught. Luckily, they have recruited new Gems for their team and meet a Gem named Gravite, who vows to take Steven's place whenever they need her. The Gems now go on strange adventures - even stranger adventures than before, meeting new Gems along the way, but their mission is to protect the universe.


  • Garnet (voiced by Estelle) – A physically imposing, disciplined warrior, Garnet is the de facto leader of the group; her gemstone is a red garnet which is embedded into each of her hands. She is twice the height of Amethyst, and has dark, reddish-hued skin and a large black afro. Her human name is Renee Lee.
  • Amethyst (voiced by Michaela Dietz) – The impulsive and passionate "wild child" of the Gems; her gem stone is an amethyst which is embedded over her chest. She has violet-colored skin and pale purple, almost white hair to her ankles and she appears to have a slight cleft in her lip which makes her appear more catlike. Activating her gemstone summons a studded energy whip. Amethyst is very joyous and carefree, and despite being a magical entity who does not need to eat or sleep, she does so because she enjoys it. She loves to roughhouse with other Gems and trade jokes. While the other two tend to support other Gems in words, Amethyst often takes concrete action that ensures other Gems' involvement. Her human name is Taylor Ann DeAzevedo.
  • Pearl (voiced by Deedee Magno Hall) – A precise and intellectual strategist, Pearl is the mental powerhouse of the Gems; her gemstone is a pearl which is embedded in her forehead. Activating her gemstone summons a teal-colored long-handled Glaive. She has pale skin and wears a blue and green tutu in keeping with her dainty, ballerina-like physique. Her human name is Britney DeAzevedo. 
  • Lapis Lazuli (voiced by Jennifer Paz) – A playful, friendly Gem; her gem stone is a lapis lazuli which is embedded on her back. She used to be bitter and mistrusting towards the Crystal Gems, believing they cared more about the Earth than their own kind, likely due to Crystal Gems not releasing her from her mirror prison, but she had a change of heart when she joined the Crystal Gems. She is one of the redeemed former villains. Her human name is Eve Gordon. 
  • Peridot (voiced by Shelby Rabara) – A clever, playful Gem; Peridot is skilled with Gem technology and is the Crystal Gems' technician. However, she can be very naïve when it comes to Earth, especially when the information is not important to missions. Her human name is Becky Matthews.
  • Jasper (voiced by Kimberly Brooks) –  A tough but respectful and righteous Gem; Jasper is a quartz and knows her respectful attitude towards gems that are strong and loyal in her eyes, but ruthless and merciless on the other side.
