Connie Maheswaran is a character from the show Steven Universe. Steven becomes her first friend and appears to have a crush on her. They are currently good friends. Although, they do nearly kiss in "An Indirect Kiss".
Connie is a young girl with dark brown puffy hair and glasses. She wears a cyan-green, white dress and lime green socks, as well as salmon-colored boots. In the intro, she wears a hat. In Lion 2: The Movie, she wears blue overalls with a white shirt instead of a dress. In An Indirect Kiss, she wears a green shirt and gray khaki shorts.
Connie has a nerdish/bookwormish personality. She is somewhat withdrawn, quiet, introverted, and intelligent. She is lonely and wishes she had more friends. Because she moves so often, she has been unable to make lasting friendships. It is heavily implied that her parents are somewhat controlling and disallow her from doing common childhood activities (such as eating donuts or anything with trans-fats). All of her time spent on beaches has given her some knowledge of boats. Her hobbies appear to be tennis and reading. Despite obeying her parents consistently, she does exploit loopholes (such as not buying snacks at a theater, instead Steven supplying them with some at his home).
- The creators of the show were planning on having a character in the show that would be Steven's girlfriend. It may be possible that their final idea was Connie.
- According to writer Matt Burnett, Connie's race is Indian.
- She is able to write backwards. This is seen in the very short amount of time it took her to write "Harpoon Gun" on the inside of the bubble in "Bubble Buddies."
- Following the events of "An Indirect Kiss", Connie can now see normally without her glasses thanks to the healing powers in Steven's spit.
