The exact Kingdom Topaz hails from is a secret she has shared with no one, just as each and every Black Rank has decided to do. Appearing in the armies of the Dark Kingdom shortly after the fall of the Sun Kingdom, it is rumored that Topaz turned traitor on the Kingdom and helped the Dark Kingdom when they attacked. Youma, before Queen Tanzanite wiped out the ranks of youma remaining from Queen Beryl's failed reign, were reported to have said that they would swear they had fought against Topaz during the Dark Kingdom's invasion of the Sun.
Quickly finding her talent with stones and rocks, Topaz initially worked as a builder in the Dark Kingdom, creating some of the General's palaces and domains when the Dark Kingdom first began establishing itself. Her position as a builder ended quickly as her temper surfaced, the woman getting into an argument with Jedite while she attempted to work on his "impossible" home. When she was able to attack the General successfully, Jedite was forced to reluctantly recommend her for military duty.
Word of her audacity spread quickly in the ranks, the woman finding herself assigned to the Second Division. Placed under the supervision of Garnet, they were originally paired as a possible deployment team due to the natures of their powers and they initial assumption that they would work well together. Unlike the better pairing of Beryllium and Pyrite, Garnet and Topaz were never able to work in unison or bolster each other's powers, and so they were split up again. Instead, the exercises served to strengthen Topaz's control over molding and shaping the materials she could attune to; because of her growing skills, and her devotion to the Dark Kingdom, she was given Black Rank before the attack on the Earth and Moon.
