Hey guys, Kmes here. After watching a bunch of theory videos and pondering a bit about Rose Quartz, Pink Diamond, and Lion, a huge idea came into my mind. I decided to share my theory, and I was told about this Wiki. So, I'm gonna be sharing my theory with you guys.
What We Know About the Diamonds
In the following episode of the two-parter, "Jail Break," we see this symbol on the floor before "Stronger Than You."
Later in the episode "Sworn to the Sword," We see this symbol in the Ancient Sky Arena but with four diamonds.
Why Rose Isn't Pink Diamond
We can debunk this infamous theory using 3 pieces of evidence. The first evidence is Rose's height. She's pretty short compared to the Diamonds we've seen so far. Saying that all Pearls are the same height, here are the size comparisons of the three gems and their Pearls.
The final piece of evidence is, well, Ian Jones-Quartey confirmed it.
Who Pink Diamond Really Was
As of now we know that Quartzes were made for military purposes. Rose Quartz was most likely created to be a general and as a comrade to Pink Diamond. It could be speculated that Rose Quartz was very close to Pink Diamond, and Pink Diamond is the real founder of the Crystal Gems.
What if Pink Diamond's symbol is missing from the modern emblem not because she was kicked off the hierarchy, but because everyone thinks she was dead? Rose Quartz most likely followed PD's legacy, and continued on to lead the rebellion. But what id PD isn't dead? What if she's just corrupted? If Pink Diamond is corrupted, maybe we've already met her...
That's right. Pink Diamond is none other than the lovable Lion.
Now let me explain what I think happens to a Gem when they corrupt. First of all, they lost their humanoid form and take the form of an animal or monster. I also think their behavior is based off their personality and goals before they went corrupt. All the corrupted gems we have seen are very aggressive. This is likely because they were all Homeworld Gems, natural enemies of the Crystal Gems. Remember how the Centipeetle was tame and friendly around Steven, but not around the Gems? Sound familiar. Yep, it's the same exact behavior of Lapis toward Steven and the Gems. Because Lapis recognized the Crystal Gems as enemies, but not Steven, she was aggressive toward the gems but passive to Steven. This behavior is most likely the same for corrupted gems. Because Pink Diamond was an ally (or maybe even the founder) of the Crystal Gems, she, as Lion, is very passive to the Crystal Gems.
So, that's my theory regarding Pink Diamond, Rose Quartz, and Lion. Comment below what you think, and see you next time!
In "Off Colors", Lars was resurrected by Steven, turning him pink and giving him a pocket dimension that connects to Lion's. This indicates that Lion was an ordinary lion who was resurrected by Rose Quartz.
