Nothing else is known about his appearance. In The Silmarillion, QS, Ch. 9 - 'Of the Flight of the Noldor', Turgon and his elder brother Fingon are described as 'bold and fiery of heart, and loath to abandon any task to which they had put their hands until the bitter end.'
Turgon's sword was Glamdring, later wielded by Gandalf.
