Rivière Turquoise is an area in The Messenger. It is a sacred grove that became charred after being taken over by demons. The grove became lush again after a powerful Messenger drove the out demons and brought in the Butterfly Matriarch. Many Magic Fireflies are scattered around this area.

Level boss[edit | edit source]
|Ninja||Any idea what I will find next?|
|Shopkeeper||Not really, but I fear this place's past may still be affecting its future. The Curse is stronger than it looks here. If you see an opportunity to catch a firefly, you should take it.|
