Characters

Phosphophyllite 

Known as “Phos” for short. One of the weaker jewel people, with a hardness of 3.5. Declared as too weak for battle, Phos is tasked with creating an encyclopedia logging new information. As Phos keeps experiencing hardships in battle, their limbs, along with their memories, are gradually lost and replaced with other elements, including agate legs, arms made from gold and platinum alloy, a lapis lazuli head and a synthetic pearl eye.

Cinnabar

An aloof jewel person who is even weaker than Phos, with a hardness of 2, but carries a powerful poison in their body. Because this poison taints the environment and erases memories stored inside affected jewel shards, Cinnabar is kept on night watch, but yearns to escape the night.

Diamond 

A kind-hearted jewel person who has the maximum hardness of 10, but is still fragile against enemy attacks.

Bort 

An intimidating diamond-class jewel person who is powerful in combat and is the most durable of the jewels. They are also very protective of Diamond.
