>>104988271>and look at how smart pearl is for being a servant class, servant to a diamond sure but im sure their scientists are smarter
I actually wonder how homogeneous the subspecies of gem actually are?
Is it possible that it might be to some degree just bigotry, like functionalism in IDW transformers, where being a particle accelerator doesn’t actually make you necessarily smarter or more scientifically gifted than a dump-truck, it’s just societies expectations that they be which is reinforcing that.
On one hand the Quartzes(Amethysts, Jaspers, and Roses) all seem to have fairly distinct personalities, both within and without their specific batches/subcastes.
On the other hand Rubies all seem to be a bit dumb/gullible.(With Navy being a possible exception) And despite apparent minor personality differences, they are apparently similar enough that CG!Ruby didn’t even notice any difference when fusing with others.
We’ve only seen 4 pearls, and have little indication of how intelligent the other 3 are or aren’t, but it theoretically might be possible that CG!Pearl’s hyper-intelligence is actually unique to her. Even then though, it’s plausible that Pearls are simply more varied than other gem types as they seem to be custom made to serve specific other gems.
