- Amberine Buhrstone (Mother)- Sard Chalcedony (Father, deceased)- Opal Potch (Adoptive Mother, deceased)- Oniyuri Peridot (Adoptive Mother, deceased)- Kimi Starr (Adoptive Step-Mother)- Lexia Peridot (Aunt)- Copper (Cat) Carnelian Myranda Peridot is a Third Class SOLDIER, best known for her kindhearted personality and her expertise in the field of Geomancy.Carnelian gained infamy for being the adopted daughter of the late Rogue SOLDIER Oni Peridot and the AVALANCHE Rebel Leader Tempest.
The story behind Carnelian's birth began when Amberine was a 16 year old girl living in Gongaga.
Amberine had always dreamed of becoming an actress, so ran away from home to find stardom in the newly built city of Midgar.
She auditioned for dozens of roles at the Loveless District Theater House in Sector 8, but the competition was fierce and she was ultimately rejected from each one.
Unable to afford living on the upper plate, she was forced to move down to the slums and take a job at the Honeybee Inn.
While working at the Inn, Amberine met Opal Potch, a slow-witted but kind co-worker who would become her only friend.
She would also meet Sard Chalcedony, a frequent customer who was posing as a Shin Ra executive to get free Inn services on the company dime.
Amberine became enamored with Sard as he bragged about his wealth and how he could make her dreams come true, and quickly fell in love with him.
But Sard was only using her, and the truth was revealed when she told him she was pregnant with his child.
Sard at first refused to have anything to do with her after that, which broke Amberine's heart.
