Gem is a female human Sorceress and Druid, appearing in every game from Heroes I to Heroes IV.

She is considered one of the finest Sorceresses and Druids, a veteran of the Succession Wars and the War of the Unholy Alliance, intelligent, conscious, and skillful in magic and scrying, but also sensitive and emotional. She scorns necromancy for the pain it brings to living creatures, and seeks consolation after all fright she witnessed during war. She has a flair for strategy as well as for philosophy debates, but tends to be naive when participating in causes for greater good.

Biography[]

Heroes III[]

Gem was one of the greatest Sorceresses that Enroth had ever seen, serving King Roland Ironfist during the Succession Wars. Shortly after Roland had secured the throne of Enroth, Gem left for Erathia, finding a new home in AvLee.OffBck

Heroes IV[]

Even though Gem was at the center of over eighty years of wars and conflicts, she remained young and beautiful thanks to the waters of a special fountain. With the destruction of the old world, she no longer has access to those magical waters and is beginning to age normally again - something she desperately wants to avoid.OffBck

Quotes[]

"I don't think it's wrong to hate the hateful or not forgive the unforgivable. What I think is wrong is to let that hating and unforgiving turn a person into the thing they hate or won't forgive. I won't make that mistake again. I won't be like them."
  —Heroes III, New Beginning campaign

Trivia[]

  • Gem has strategy to make her hair black during the battle, in order to confuse her opponents.[1]
  • Gem felt a slight tension towards dendroids in her first years on Antagarich: I am becoming to feel quite at home in the Rampart Castle. I'm even starting to get accustomed to the dragons! Actually, it's the Dendroids that make me a little uncomfortable. Not them personally. They're really quite friendly. It's just that they remind me of a past I'd rather forget. I haven't seen moving trees since I was a little girl.OffBck[2]
  • Although Gem's class in The Restoration of Erathia and Armageddon's Blade is Druid like any other Rampart magic-oriented heroes, in Heroes 3 SoD campaigns she is marked as the "Sorceress" class. She is the only hero in the game to have a unique class name.
  • Gem has another portrait more similar to her Heroes I and Heroes II appearance in the The Shadow of Death campaigns.
