Peridot is a character from Steven Universe and is a major character in The Knights of the Multiverse. A founding member of the Crystal Knights, she serves as a part of the team's brains, and, alongside her close friend Lapis Lazuli, aid them in their dimension-hopping, super robot fighting escapades.
She's also the one to thank for the team's name.
Though she often tries to deny it, Peridot tends to act very childish at times (sometimes even more than her younger teammates). She's been shown to be incredibly stubborn, getting frustrated when she doesn't get her way and quickly loses her temper. Often when working, Peridot insists things be done her way and despises compromising. She also is vocal and honest about her viewpoints and will often bluntly state what's on her mind, regardless of the audience. However, Peridot does take responsibility for what she says and has learned how to keep some of her more offensive opinions to herself. She also repeatedly shows an arrogance and self-aggrandizing behavior. like how she sometimes calls herself the leader of the Crystal Knights because she came up with the name.
That isn't to say Peridot is incapable of putting others above herself, though; she is just not used to having others who are willing to do the same for her. As she spends more time on Earth (or really, multiple Earths and other strange, new worlds), she has started developing a more gracious and compassionate attitude. The same behavior extends to her admitting something personal. When a cause is important to her, Peridot will be just as courage and passionate as the rest of the Knights. She shows a strong dedication to her friends, frequently standing against much stronger opponents as long as it means that one of her allies can get out alive. Also, as much as she rags on about how she likes to follow the rules, she does gets slightly excited when she breaks them.
