Heinrichite is a gemsona created by N.R. Wynter. He was originally a tower guard bored of protecting an old, forgotten gem facility. Everything changed when a lone thief named Hackmanite appeared. One thing lead to another and Heinrichite reluctantly joined forces with him. When he's not snozing, he assists Hackmanite in his heists.
Heinrichite is a small, stubby Gem with light yellow transparent skin. He has a wide waist and slim torso with muscular arms that almost drag on the floor. His face is a long trapezoid shape with a prominent chin and wide frown. From the top of his visor, Heinrichite's gem peaks out. The gem takes up the top portion of his face thus he lacks eyes. He wears a kelp green jumpsuit that starts from his neck and ends at his ankles. At the rim of his jumpsuit are a fern green hilly pattern. This pattern matches with his fingerless gloves. His shiny chest plate is pear colored with a green inverted triangular design on the front. The gem's feet are very tiny and seem to be made of the same material as his gem and chest plate. There is a visible indent on the heels.
Lazy, but humble Gem. He's known to sleep most of the time. Working at a facility that hasn't had a visitor in thousands of years has made him impatient and bored very easily. He likes to be socialize with others, but does his best to avoid confrontation.
He sometimes unintentionally makes sarcastic remarks.
Heinrichite has standard Gem abilities.
His gem type are good for close combat and capturing.
- Halberd Proficiency: Heinrichite is exceptionally skilled with the halberd, able to swing and knock opponents off their feet. While slow, Heinrichite's attacks are powerful enough to take down strong soldier gems.
- Resourcefulness: A fan of using the environment as an advantage. He's quick to find anything to use, no matter how small or insignificant. This is mainly used for hiding as Heinrichite will utilize any space he can fit into.
- Sharp Hearing: While Heinrichite can technically see with his visor, he was formed without eyes. Because of this, he's more sensitive to sound. He can hear the softest sound a mile away.
- Wireframe Vision: As his gem takes up the top half of his face, Heinrichite is blind. But with the help of his visor, he is able to "see". His visor can scan and send information directly to his gem. Then he'll be able to perceive objects and movement as wireframes. This also means he can "see" through objects.
- Radiation Disintegration: A specialty among heinrichites. By touching an object, it loses cohesion and falls apart. However, it's not strong enough to destroy gems.
- Taser Fingers: From his fingertips, Heinrichite can release a small electrical shock that can incapacitate a gem by disrupting their physical form. This takes a lot of concentration and energy out of him and is only used to capture gems. This is because gems are made of different materials than buildings produced by gem kind.
Not much is known about Heinrichite's past. He has been a sentry for an abandoned gem facility in Earth's solar system. Growing bored of doing nothing for thousands of years, he began slacking off which got him into plenty of trouble.
Everything seemed to change when he met Hackmanite during one of his heists. He eventually joined the thief, gladly leaving the facility for good.
While the extent of their relationship is unknown, it's said they're good friends.

|Heinrichite's gem is a thin, tabular gemstone protruding from his head. It's rather asymmetrical, made of two different crystals stacked next to each other. One side is much wider than the other. The gemstone is polished.|
