Lapis Lazuli is a character from Steven Universe and is a major character in The Knights of the Multiverse. A founding member of The Knights, she aids them in their dimension-hopping, super robot fighting adventures.
Before the events of the series, Lapis was a very vulnerable character. Suffering from being trapped in a mirror for over nearly 6,000 years, and then to be used by others several times after she was freed, made her unable to easily let things go, making her stubborn and hesitant in cooperation or accepting any kind of help from others unless she had no other choice, though this mostly stems from simply mistrust towards others from previous encounters, but she was interested in opening up to people who offered her kindness. She also held a cynicism about herself which bordered on self-hatred, harboring a deep regret for her actions as Malachite, constantly grappling for some kind of control over her powers, but once she had it, she was scared that she'd do something bad with it. When confronted with an enemy stronger than herself, Lapis would usually display a defeatist and pessimistic approach, believing that putting up a struggle would only make the situation worse, but even from the beginning, she would fight back with all her might when push came to shove.
Her decision to face Unicron's Heralds and choosing to face the craziness of the Multiverse with her newfound friends have signaled a change in her from Season 1 onward; she's become much more relaxed and braver than she used to be. Forming a second home with her new friends have made her a lot happier, more confident, and joyful while visiting other worlds, though she can be aggressive and abrasive when dealing with evil forces. Sometimes she's even shown to be downright chipper and exuberant while assisting her colleagues with their silly antics. But, that doesn't mean that her past scars have gone away completely, as she does still have a fear of losing control and hurting one of her friends, and she usually doesn't trust newcomers to the team when she meets them, being skeptical of them, but she'll usually come around once she's gotten a good idea of where their allegiances lie. She also harbored a profound fear of responsibility, immediately rebuffing Greg's offer for her to be captain of the boat before Steven reassures her by insisting that they all be first mates and share responsibility, but this has managed to mellow out with time, especially after she started taking care of Magneto.
Season 1 Edit
Season 2 Edit
Season 3 Edit
Water Manipulation Edit
Lapis's gem gives her the ability to control any form of water, from a puddle to the entire ocean. She can then manipulate it any way she can think of, including:
- Giant Fists
A pair of giant, watery fists that can either cover up her hands or stretch out long distances.
Lapis can create a pair of water wings from her gem that allow her to fly.
Lapis is able to wrap herself, and anyone else in her immediate vicinity, in a water barrier. While not as strong as, say, the one's created by Sunset, it is strong enough to protect herself and anyone in it from machine gun/laser fire.
Combo Attacks Edit
- Raging Whirlpool1
Combo attack w/ Tom Lucitor: Lapis and Tom mix their powers to create an enormous watery/fiery vortex.
Proving the old saying "opposites attract" still runs true, despite their opposite powers, Lapis and Tom are really good friends.
Being the person that found her, Lapis was given the responsibility of looking after Magneto and helping her control her powers, much to her chagrin at first, though she has warmed up to her overtime. As time has passed though, she started to form more of a bond with the young android, especially when she learned of her fear of abandonment after being tossed aside just for her abnormal gift, obviously thinking back to her time trapped in the mirror.
For the timeline of events, Lapis and Peridot's story starts up around season 3 of the original Steven Universe (the point in which most fans believe they were put on the back burner for the rest of the show's run), sometime before the events of Alone at Sea.
1Yes, this attack is named after the same attack used by Mermaidman from SpongeBob.
