Quintessence is a form of energy found in the Voltron: Legendary Defender animated series. Described as an incredibly potent and useful energy source, it is actively sought by the Galra Empire in their efforts of conquest and also serves to power Voltron.



In it's unrefined state, Quintessence appears as a yellow liquid; through various refinement processes the energy can become purple or blue-the former is the work of Haggar and her Druids and seems to result in a reduced amount of usable Quintessence. In either state Quintessence has remarkable rejuvenation properties: it is how Zarkon was able to maintain his youth and vitality despite the passage of 10,000 years and also healed Keith after he was injured in a battle with a Druid.
