It's Halloween again! And after the chapter when we introduce Cyrus's Mom, I have to take advantage of doing a Steven Universe Halloween homage!
Although SU began airing a few years after I had already written the comic's story, its visual style and presentation had a big effect on my art and therefore it is a very visible inspiration for the comic. Steven and Cyrus have a lot in common personality-wise, while the rest of the cast can find some similarities here and there.
- Helene as Yellow Diamond - a sinister and tough leader, who is surprisingly emotional
- Ios as Yellow Pearl - being Helene's assistant much like YP is to YD
- Sagittarius as Lapis Lazuli - around the beginning of Season 2 of Steven Universe, when people made "Which Gem is Which Zodiac?" posts, they often put Lapis as Sagittarius. I think the characters do share a lot in common; being freed from imprisonment by the main character, they then become a powerful ally
- Trickster as Amethyst - purple, likes to shapeshift, tragic backstory??
- Xisea as Lion - almost a comical comparison, but they're both the main character's animal friend
- And finally Cyrus's Mom as Rose - they're the main character's estranged mom, although I promise you, Cyrus's Mom isn't dead XD
