"Whatever happens, we're in this together."- Emerald to Arkayna in "How to Train a Mysticon"
Emerald Zirconia Goldenbraid (called "Em" for short) is a main character of Mysticons. She first appears in Sisters in Arms. She is voiced by Evany Rosen. She is called a teenager in Episode Six, though her age is unknown.
She is the second Mysticon Knight and a female dwarf from the mining town of Rudick's Hollow who served as the Royal Griffin Wrangler and a good friend of Princess Arkayna Goodfey even prior to becoming a Mysticon.
Emerald is a dwarf who has a long hair tied into a ponytail with shaved hair on top. She wears a green shirt under her purple tank top, a hat with goggles, green shorts, and long bootlegs. When she turned into a Mysticon Knight she wears a purple tank top with pants.
In Heart of Gold, it is revealed that Emerald has skills as a mechanic and tinkerer, and used to win awards with her father, Malachite Goldenbraid. She has a warm and caring heart, is confident, tough, and brave dwarf.
As Mysticon Knight, she wields a sword and can summon a shield of pink mystical energy. The shield has at least two forms, appearing as both a typical arm-mounted long shield as well as an encompassing sphere.
Additional Mystical Weapon
Her special power is never revealed in the show, but may be so in the comics or chapter books.
Emerald and Arkayna were friends even before they were Mysticons. Emerald comforted Arkayna when Arkayna was crying because her parents were turned to bone.
They are shown to get along well despite their differences. In A Walk in the Park , Emerald felt guilty when Tazma put a spell on Zarya and promised to get her through it. In the episode Mutiny Most Fowl, Emerald was relieved when she saw that Zarya was alright, and gave Zarya headphones to make sure that she doesn't fall under Captain Kaos' charm spell.
Emerald and Piper get along. She was the first to realize that Piper didn't want to play on the carousal, and wanted to go there because she realized that the codex piece was there. She also told Piper that they are there for her when Zarya quit the Mysticons.
As the Royal Griffin Wrangler, Em has known her Griffin, Topaz, for quite a while. However, she seems to have passed her over for the pale pink Dragon of Light, as she is not riding Topaz in the last scene of the show.
