Viago is a main character in What We Do In The Shadows, a horror mockumentary about the lives of four vampires. His full name is Viago Von Dorna Schmarten Scheden Heimburg (né von Blitzenberg) and he is 379 years old. As suggested by his clothes, he lived in the 18th century. He traveled to New Zealand to find his true love, Katherine. He’s the most endearing vampire in the group, but he can be uptight, especially when it comes to keeping the house clean.

Aquamarine Steven Universe

Aquamarine from Steven Universe

Aquamarine is an antagonist in the Cartoon Network show, Steven Universe. We first see her trick Connie and easily defeat Steven using her hair bow, which doubles as a wand. She was sent to Earth by the diamonds to collect more humans for their zoos. Like Lapis Lazuli, she has wings and harnesses the power of flight. Her petite and innocent appearance allows her to deceive humans, asking “are you my dad?” She then calls upon a Topaz fusion to absorb them and take them away. Use Spirit Gum to apply the gemstone onto your face. You can also draw it on with more face paint, mixing the aqua and white to get the right color.

In the beginning, Caitlin is naive and spoiled. However, she matures as the show progresses, such as developing a work ethic at the Main Squeeze. Although she can come off as self centered, she has proven time and time again that she can be a good friend. In fact, she is the most optimistic and caring out of the friend circle.
