The sentence is a bit unclear.  If you are refering to the group, "its" would be the correct word.  But then you shoud also change "with" to "on its quirks."  But you might be trying to say something else.

 

The quirks of each girl complimented the group's character.

compliment = giving praise; (He complimented me on my dress.) complement = to complete or enhance (We have complementary personalities, so it is easy to work together.) KimberlyAug 27 '11 at 18:16
