Nephrites are a one-eyed subspecies of Gem.

Appearance Edit

Nephrites resemble human teenagers with a single large green eye, green skin, and tufted or messy white, dark green, or olive hair.

Corrupted Nephrites take the form of giant centipede-like creatures known as Centipeetles.

Function Edit

Nephrites serve as pilots for various types of ships and building structures on Gem colonies. Their rank is never clearly stated, but it is possible that they are high-ranking Gems because they have been known to captain their own ships.

Abilities Edit

When corrupted, Nephrites can produce Centipeetle spawn that resemble them but are smaller in size and lack white manes and crystal covering their body. They can also shoot corrosive acid and climb on sheer cliff faces.
