Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Turquoise's original name was Apatite, but KJD decided to change it.
- KJD describes her outfit as a partial magical girl Sailor suit with a twist.
- Turquoise uses her powers based on which set of arms she is using; her main arms control her hydrokinesis, her secondary arms control her ferrokinesis, and using both sets in tandem allows her to control liquid metal and mercury.
- When asked why she doesn't wear long pants like her components, KJD stated that Turquoise's shorts are meant to add to her "carefree-childlike-goofball vibe", a description which she thinks also represents Lapis and Peridot’s friendship very well.
