Peridot isn’t very friendly to say the least. In Steven Universe, she’s a ruthless, calculating gemstone who used to be a technician for the Homeworld. She gets stranded on Earth at one point and causes nothing but trouble, becoming one of the most prominent antagonists until eventually coming to a truce with the other gems to help them save the world. Afterwards, she ends up more or less staying out of the way, living in The Barn with her friends Pumpkin (a sentient pumpkin) and Lapis Lazuli (another gemstone).
Peridot can be incredibly cruel and spiteful but she eventually finds herself questioning her actions and renouncing her evil ways. Eventually she and Steven learn to respect each other, but they still have a rocky relationship at times. Peridot isn’t quick at all to admit her faults or flaws, and secretly she can be very insecure when it comes to her own life and friendships with others.
