I'm kind of surprised there isn't more resentment toward Steven in the story. I mean his mom left them in a lurch and died solely for the sake of bringing him into the world when it was implied she was their Great Leader. At the very least they should dislike his father a great deal for luring his mother away like that.
Yeah but the way they take him in immediately just seemed odd to me. I mean Pearl steps into a motherly role and Amethyst becomes the fun big sister way too easily. I can give them a pass on trying to keep him out of things until he begins to understand how his own powers work and how to harness them. I'm just kind of shocked none of them say anything about how his birth took Rose Quartz away from them. It's like we got the character development for them halfway through without a proper starting point. As wrong as it would be to think that way, it would be more logical for at least one of them to blame Steven a little bit for his mother's "death." I guess I miss the chance for the characters to evolve out of that mindset.
