Turquesa hatched in 1938. At some point before 1993 she was entrusted with the Turquoise Pendant linked to the Mayan Sun Amulet, and thus received her name. By 1988, it was likely that she and Jade had become mates and she laid her first egg that year. She was patrolling the rainforest with Zafiro, Jade and Obsidiana on the day in 1993 when a group of poachers looted the Mayan Pyramid and destroyed her clan. Fortunately, the rookery was undisturbed and the eggs of the clan, including the one she laid in 1988, will hatch in 1998.
Turquesa seems to have more familiar knowledge of the history of her clan. She is also Zafiro's second-in-command.
In 1996, she helped defend the rain forest from Cyberbiotics, and from Jackal and Hyena in Preston Vogel's employ. Afterwards, she and Jade left Guatemala with Goliath, Elisa, Angela and Bronx to transport, plant and nurture various rare herb and flower species on Avalon while Zafiro and Obsidiana remained to protect the rain forest. After insuring that the plants were thriving on Avalon, Jade and Turquesa left the island for home, though it is likely Avalon took them to a few other locations first, possibly including New York to retrieve the Mayan Sun Amulet from the Manhattan Clan. They returned to Guatemala soon afterwards to rejoin Zafiro and Obsidiana in protecting "The Green".
Like most Mayan gargoyles, Turquesa has black hair and a large crest on her forehead. She has the most common type of gargoyle wing (similar to Goliath's) and has turquoise and blue coloring. Perhaps her most unusual feature is that each of her elbows and knees sport several spikes.
