a building north of Proto Dome in 2300 AD where construction of robots continues.
Robo and Crono ventured there to reset the power to Proto Dome so its back
door could be opened and access to a new Gate granted.
a species living on Water Dragon Isle in southern El Nido. Faeries have wings
and so are able to fly for short distances. The faerie village is eventually
attacked by the dwarves that were forced out of the Hydra Marshes. In the
ensuing struggle many faeries were killed. As humans were blamed for pushing
the dwarves to this, most of the faeries have a grudge against humanity.
Fall of Guardia, the
event in 1005 AD in which the kingdom was attacked by Porre. Truce was burned
to the ground and the kingdom was destroyed. During the battle the legendary
Masamune was stolen by an unknown person. As of yet the cause for battle
is unknown, as are the fates of those involved.
in Another World Fargo is a pirate aboard the S.S. Invincible, pillaging
ships affiliated with either Lynx or General Viper. In Home World he runs
a crooked casino cruise ship, the S.S. Zelbess, named after his deceased
demi-human wife. Fargo is the father of both Nikki and Marcy.
a large-scale prototype supercomputer completed in the year 2300 AD of the
timeline in which the Day of Lavos was prevented. The designers incorporated
the old Mother Brain circuitry to make FATE an even more powerful supercomputer
and included it into the design of Chronopolis. In the Present, FATE monitors
the two parallel worlds and directly influences the inhabitants of Another
World through Records of Fate so that none will be tempted to leave the islands
and indirectly cause a dramatic change to the timeline which could threaten
FATE's existence. FATE has been eliminated from Home World as a result of
the formation of the Dead Sea.
a young woman living at the heart of the southern Zenan continent in 600
AD. Her dream is to work with her husband Marco to revive the forest
around her house which has slowly been turned into desert by subterranean
beasts. After cleaning out the monsters Robo volunteers to remain with Fiona
so that he might help her replant the trees. Four hundred years later the
culmination of this plan is a success as the forest has been completely restored.
As a result, her house has been transformed into a memorial.
one of Magus' three generals. Flea is a male shape-shifting Mystic who often
takes the form of a young woman. Flea possess powerful magic and thus has
no need to fight with conventional weapons. Flea's Japanese dialogue implies
that he is slightly older than Magus, but his exact age cannot be determined.
a small island north-east of the main island of El Nido. A small cabin exists
here, entirely overgrown with moss. In Another World it is home to a lone
demi-human. In Home World a single woman makes it her residence. Dario was
found washed ashore here and was nursed to health by her.
a forest surrounding the Reptite Lair inhabited by wild animals in the
Prehistoric Age. Crono and Ayla must venture through the thick foliage by
following the footsteps of the Reptites who stole the Gate Key.
found north of Medina in the Present age, it appears as a transparent blue
pyramid. In actuality this is the remnants of the North Palace of Zeal.
Inside have been sealed the Swallow sword and Safe Helm since 12,000 BC.
the fort was originally built by the Dragonian survivors after the species
lost the war with Chronopolis. The fort was most probably designed for ceremonial
purposes revolving around celebration of the dragons through use of the Dragon
Tear. Inside are wonders foreign to the era in which the structure was built,
such as robotic guards and teleportation platforms reminiscent of Zeal's
skyways. These devices may have their origins in either the Reptite dimension
or Chronopolis, or possibly both. Luccia ventured into the fort and experimented
on some of the machines there, so it is not unthinkable that perhaps some
of this technology was given to Porre's military.
a small canyon at the center of El Nido's main isle. In it lie the bones
of many dragons and lizards brought into the dimension from Dinopolis. As
Dragonians used to inhabit the region, the area has become like a graveyard
to their kind. The bellflower also blooms in the valley.
a young man who works at the market in Truce. He was captured with a group
of traders and wrongfully accused of illegal actions. He was convicted without
a trial and faced death in Guardia Prison before being rescued by Crono.
He works at the marketplace with Elaine and his father.
Glenns pseudonym after his transformation into an amphibian demi-human
as a result of Magus' magic. He journeys with Crono to defeat Magus and avenge
the death of Cyrus, his friend since childhood. In the ending of Chrono
Trigger the spell on Frog is broken and he regains his humanity, whereupon
he becomes knighted by the King of Guardia. The Old-English accent Frog has
seems to be a result of his new appearance since he spoke normal English
in flashbacks of his youth, when he was still human. It has been speculated
his amphibian tongue made it difficult to pronounce words correctly.
a large green amphibian responsible for stealing the Hero's Medal prior to
590 AD. After being confronted in a forest, the frog quickly succumbed to
Cyrus' Nirvana Strike and forfeited the badge.
a piece of Lavos that was presumably broken off his shell upon impact with
the planet in the Prehistoric Age. It was buried underground only to be unearthed
around 3 million BC. Humanitys contact with it began a process of
artificial evolution which tripled their brain size until the present. The
flame was found on the seabed in the Apocalypse-averted future and stored
within Chronopolis for study, held in the most secured depths of the facility.
The artifact was instrumental in causing the Time Crash and was used during
FATEs division and sealing of the Dragon God. The flame is integral
in linking the Arbiter to the Time Devourer and is intended to ultimately
be used to free the beast from the Darkness of Time. It is said the flame
can grant any wish, though it remains to be seen how this is accomplished.
after rescuing a man who had become trapped in a cave within Home Worlds
Shadow Forest Serge was rewarded with a mushroom that had been plucked from
within the crevice. Lisas father, who was also in the forest, was
collecting rare fungi and pleaded with Serge to have the morsel. Upon eating
it his form was distorted to that of a mushroom-man. Angered with Serge he
tagged along in the desperate hope the Frozen Flame could be used to restore
his true form. As this proved futile Funguy ultimately came to accept his
new appearance by journeys end. In Another World Lisas father
remained human but fell into a deep sleep after becoming ill.
a perfectly round island found in the south-western corner of El Nido. The
area is home to a primeval forest in which dwell primitive cave-people,
dinosaurs, and large prehistoric insects. In Home World the Green Dragon
lies sleeping at the islands center. The Beeba originally came from
Gaea's Navel, which is known in their culture as the Ancient Ground.
the 13th Grandmaster of the Acacia Dragoons, he was the leader of the four
Dragoon Devas at the turn of the 11th century. He wielded the Einlanzer and
was one of the top warriors of El Nido. At an unknown date he ventured with
Radius to Divine Dragon Falls where the two discovered the Masamune. Overcome
with jealousy brought out by the blade, Radius struck down his friend. Garai
was buried on what became known as the Isle of the Damned. However
Garais spirit remained restless. His ghost still haunted his grave
and challenged Serges party for ownership of the Einlanzer. Later it
became evident his soul had linked itself to the Masamune as he materialized
above it when possessing Dario on Forbidden Island. It is presumed he was
put to rest after Serge cleansed the sword after the battle. He had two sons,
Dario and Glenn.
the Guru of Time that once resided in the Kingdom of Zeal. During the Ocean
Palace disaster he was enveloped in a time gate that propelled him to the
End of Time. There he remained, standing under a lamp post, guiding lost
travelers in time.
a timegate that allowed one to travel to the same location but in a different
era. Each Gate has a corresponding destination that cannot be changed. It
seems anyone may use Gates, but as they are unstable it takes a Gate Key
in order to force them open. It was hypothesized Lavos created Gates, but
considering some had existed before Lavos' fall, this idea seems improbable..
As of yet their existence remains unexplained.
a small device crafted by Lucca that is used to force open Gates so they
may be entered. Using a Gate without the Gate Key is possible but due to
the Gates instability is not recommended. Kino stole the Gate Key from
the party while they slept after a prehistoric festival and in turn had the
key stolen from him by Reptites.
a humanoid robot built by Lucca as a battle trainer and set up as an attraction
at the Millennial Fair. Though slow moving, it has a boxing glove that extends
from its stomach so it can attack from a distance. A victory over it earned
one 15 silver points. Gato is red and white in color, has metallic feline
ears, and is prone to singing. It was eventually destroyed in the orphanage
fire at Lucca's house sometime in the years following 1010. In the Japanese
release Gato was known as Gonzales.
found on an isolated island in the year 2300, it houses the Mother Brain
supercomputer as well as equipment designed to facilitate the execution of
humanity. R-Series that have been re-programmed scour the planet for people
which are collected and brought to the dome to be destroyed. Crono's team
manages to stop the massacre by eliminating the Mother Brain and shutting
the facility down . In the Japanese release it was fittingly called the Genocide
a territory in the west formerly under the command of General Viper. Ten
years before Kid's journey into Viper Manor the general was slain by Lynx.
It is unknown where this region exists as it is only mentioned in the
Radical Dreamers dimension.
a man who sacrificed his life in order to help Greco. Details surrounding
the incident are completely nonexistent at this time. The old woman who managed
Terminas shrine in Home World was able to channel Ghetzs spirit
so it could communicate with Greco for one final time. Ghetz encouraged his
friend to feel no remorse and promised his emotional wounds would one day
heal. Until then he would be with Greco in spirit. Ghetz had a younger sister,

failed to explore its interior.
the mother of Crono. Her name was not included in the English version but
was disclosed in the original Japanese release.
Glenn (Chrono Cross)
a young Acacia Dragoon private that is rumored to be named after a legendary
hero of the past (that is, Chrono Trigger's Glenn), though to my knowledge
this is not stated in the game. He is the brother of Dario but faces turmoil
as he feels he can never live up to the standard his brother has set. He
has trouble accepting Dario's disappearance but comes to be a powerful soldier
in his own right once he gains the Einlanzer after traveling
Glenn (Chrono Trigger)
a friend of Cyrus since childhood, when Glenn was teased by other children
Cyrus would step in to protect him. After Cyrus became a knight of Guardia,
Glenn acted as his assistant and the two left on a journey in 590. Together
they recovered the Heros Medal from the Frog King and then sought the
legendary Masamune. Shortly after receiving the sword they encountered Magus
atop the Denadoro Mountains. The results of this meeting were grim as Glenn
witnessed the death of his best friend. At Ozzies prompting, Magus
transformed Glenn into an anthropomorphic frog and he narrowly survived with
his life. Recovering both the medal and half of the shattered Masamune Glenn
sought isolation. By the year 600 he made occasional appearances to Guardia
Castle during which he undertook the role of becoming Queen Leenes
personal protector. He was able to overcome his sorrowful past only after
avenging Cyrus death during Cronos quest. In the ending to
Chrono Trigger Glenn regained his human form and became knighted by
the King of Guardia.
the father of Van, he lives with his son in Termina. In his youth he trained
to be an artist and proudly produced quality works. His wife gave birth to
Van in 1006 but in subsequent years she fell gravely ill. Gogh was too poor
to afford her medication and because of this she died (evidently after 1010).
In Another World Gogh was instantly changed by this event. On the very day
of his wifes passing he started working furiously and has kept busy
ever since. Because of his efforts he lives in a two-story mansion with enough
wealth to afford luxurious furniture and a housekeeper. In truth he gained
this fortune by abusing his art skills to produce counterfeit paintings which
he sold abroad. As a result he is often away on long sea voyages. He urges
his son to study accounting, claiming painting will not ensure success and
wealth. However in Home World Gogh remained a struggling painter. For 10
years he has continued living in poverty as he could not accept his paintings
were good enough to sell. He used his own homemade paints, one of which was
El Nido Blue, but refused to sell it despite knowing the color could be worth
a substantial amount of money. He remains on the brink of eviction as he
can barely gather the funds to pay his rent.
creature summoned by Dalton. Golems mimic the type of magic that is used
against them so a proper battle strategy can easily be formed. Dalton calls
forth four Golems against Crono's party including the Golem Twins and the
Golem Boss, the latter of which is deathly afraid of heights.
In Home World he acts as an assistant to Chief Radius in Arni. In Another
World he has actually became Arni's chief as Radius chose to live alone on
Hermit's Hideaway immediately following his retirement from

Janice was a professional at this sport and commanded quite a lethal team.
a man who maintains Terminas shrine in Another World with Romana. He
primarily works in spiritual matters and is first seen sending off the soul
of a deceased child in a funeral ceremony. He was also the exorcist hired
by the Acacia Dragoons to purify Fossil Valley. In the past he performed
as a wrestler as he enjoyed the thrill of destruction. In a mysterious incident
his life was saved by Ghetz, but it is not know how or why. Presumably this
act spurred him to change his lifestyle. He remains sorrowful over the event
but an encounter with Ghetzs spirit helped ease his mind.
one of the six resident dragon gods of El Nido. This one embodies the Green
element, which controls the forces of both wind and plant matter. It sits
at the center of Gaea's Navel in Home World.
a cyborg employed by the Porre military. He was dispatched to El Nido with
other troops and attempted to halt Serge's rescue of Lady Riddel. After
witnessing Serge's strength in battle, Grobyc allied himself with the boy
and turned away from Porre.
kingdom that rules the Zenan continent. It was founded in the first century
AD and is celebrating its 1000th anniversary at the onset of Chrono
Trigger. The ruling monarch is King Guardia XXXIII, with heir to the
throne Princess Nadia. The kingdom has seen many crises, the most noteworthy
of which include the epic war with Magus in the Middle Ages and a conspiracy
to overthrow the monarchy during the present. Despite its many victories,
the kingdom suffered a devastating attack by Porre in 1005, which brought
the country to ruins. Details surrounding this incident are yet unknown.
woodlands surrounding Guardia Castle which are home mainly to small
birds and animals. A Gate can be found in the eastern clearing that leads
to Bangor Dome in 2300 AD.
after rescuing Queen Leene the chancellor of 600 remarks that a criminal
justice system must be established in the country to prosecute villains.
This prison is the result of that statement. Within the walls prisoners are
poorly cared for and the cells are damp and dimly lit. Inmates are often
abused and left to die from neglect and starvation. Torture devices can also
be found in the far end of the dungeon. Crono was scheduled to be executed
here, as well as the merchant Fritz.
a large bipedal mobile robot. It belongs to the Porre military and was
used against Serge during his infiltration of Viper Manor to rescue Riddel.
Guillot has a rotating blade at the end of each arm that can heat up and
slice an opponent. Porre likely acquired the resources to build such a machine
from the ruins of Fort Dragonia.
a small village in El Nidos western seas. Forced off the main island
by Zenan colonists one hundred years ago, followers of the Divine Dragon
Faith moved to outlying islands. Those demi-humans which bore no grudge against
humanity worked with humans to establish Guldove. This is virtually the only
site where humans and demi-humans co-exist peacefully. The community is tightly
knit and is heavily rooted in tradition involving Dragonian lore and ritual.
The communitys leader is the High Priestess. In addition to a clinic
there are three towers: the merchant and residential towers, and the third,
the Dragon Shrine. The Dragon Tear was originally stored here until its theft
by the unwitting Orcha.
the seventh dragon god. In the year 1006 Schala's influence from beyond time
caused a magnetic storm which forced Chronopolis to shut its power off. During
this time FATE lost control of the Frozen Flame. With the seal on the six
dragons slightly lessened, they used the chance to create Harle. She went
forth and allied herself with Lynx, FATE's biological interface. She then
worked to gain possession of the flame in order to steal it away from FATE
so that the dragons could once again merge into their rightful form. After
meeting Serge she faces emotional turmoil as she seems to develop feelings
for him. She is then torn between obeying her purpose and following her own
desires. In the end she reluctantly is forced to merge with the other dragons
after FATE's destruction. It is presumed she lost her identity in this merger
and disappeared with the Dragon God after its defeat atop Terra Tower.
a large blue beast which inhabits the Heckran Cave on the continent east
of Zenan. It seems to be a type of Mystic who dislikes humanity. Crono is
forced to fight the Heckran on a trek through the cavern in order to reach
Truce. Heckran bones are also useful in creating soup stock, and dogs, Poshul
especially, appear to favor them as well.
a cave set into a mountain just north of Melchior's house. The fearsome Heckran
dwells inside. It is dimly lit and partially flooded, but in the interior
lies a whirlpool that connects to the ocean outside. By diving into this
pool one can swim to the Vortex Point, located just off shore from Lucca's
Orcha's alternate personality that emerged when he was secretly given Quaffid
seeds by the Porre military. Once the transformation was complete he lost
all control of his normal self and was forced to do the bidding of the troops.
an island used by Garai and Radius to train for battle. In Another World
Radius retired from the Dragoons in 1016 and took up residency on the island.
Though the house was destroyed in an attack by Harle, Radius had built a
basement room into the trunk of a tree in which he could take refuge.
stolen by the Frog King and recovered by Cyrus, it is the mark of the legendary
hero. Glenn recovered the medal shortly after his transformation into Frog,
but lost it a decade later when visiting a bar in Porre. Tata found the medal
and was mistaken for the legendary hero. After fleeing from battle Tata
admitted to being a phoney and gave the medal to Crono, who
in turn returned it to Frog.
this is what the Northern Ruins came to be called after they were repaired
in the Middle Ages. Cyrus' tombstone rests in the basement.
one of two possible realities that emerged as a result of the time split
of 1010 AD. In this dimension FATE is no longer able to alter people's minds
through the Records of Fate and so humanity has been left to its own devices.
This explains in part the dramatic differences we see in this timeline compared
to when that of Another World. Home World is the dimension in which Serge
was rescued from drowning and the Dead Sea has formed, eliminating Chronopolis.
located just north of Ioka Village, this area is home to small game. After
defeating a creature one can collect its horns, feathers, fangs, and other
pieces to use for trading purposes back in Ioka Village. On the rare occasion
it rains, a Nu can be found inside the hunting range.
a large reptilian beast living in the Hydra Marshes in El Nido. Hydras were
brought into the human dimension as a result of the Time Crash; their origin
lies in the Reptite timeline. The hydra is the lifeblood of the marshes and
the ecosystem deteriorates once the hydra becomes extinct. Serge was forced
to kill the last remaining adult hydra in Home World in order to recover
the hydra humour to save Kid's life. Luckily the murdered hydra was with
young. The babies will one day grow to maturity so the ecosystem need not

In Another World the marshes are nothing but a polluted acidic bog, inhospitable
to almost all life. In Home World the swamp is on the verge of termination;
only the presence of the last remaining hydra maintains its stability. Various
fauna make the swamp their home, including the elusive wingapede. Dwarves
also inhabited this area until they were driven away by the failing ecosystem.

a blue mermaid demi-human. She is the sister of Zelbess and sister in-law
to Fargo. In Home World she seeks help in trying to free the demi-humans
of Fargo's enslavement so that Marbule might be rebuilt.
Isle of the Damned
an island located in the north-eastern quadrant of El Nido. After Garai was
murdered by Radius his body was taken to the island to be buried. In those
days it was beautiful like any other. The landscape turned to that of bones,
tar, and decay after negative sentiments from Garais spirit warped
the surroundings. During an expedition in 1017 Dario and Karsh founnd the
Masamune on the island. Some hypothesize the cursed sword may have had a
part in changing the islands appearance by amplifying negative energy.
the son of Queen Zeal and the brother of Schala. Though young, he feels apathetic
toward things and somewhat bitter. This could be caused by the drastic changes
that have occurred to his mother in recent years. He regrets not being able
to save Schala, whom he loves dearly. It is rumoured his magical ability
rivals even that of Schala. During the Ocean Palace disaster he is enveloped
in a Gate that propels him to the Middle Ages. There he is found by Ozzie.

one of the three current Dragoon Devas. In Home World he vanished with other
members of the Dragoons in 1017 during an expedition to the Dead Sea. In
Another World he remained alive as he never undertook the jounrey. In both
worlds he took a trip to the Isle of the Damned when Dario became possessed
by the cursed Masamune. In order to defend himself, Karsh was forced to strike
down his childhood friend. Karsh had long harbored feelings of affection
for Riddel but never let them be known. Upon hearing of her engagement to
Dario he offered his congratulations despite being deeply pained. Karsh is

found by Lucca as a baby within the Guardia Forest in 1004 AD, she is in
reality the clone of Schala. While she is unaware of this fact, Kid was created
by Schala while she was in the confines of Lavos. Before Schala could completely
come under Lavos' influence she sent her clone through time so it would have
a chance to free her. Kid lived with Lucca until sometime after 1010 AD when
Lynx and Harle burned Lucca's house. Afterwards she joined the resistance
group "Radical Dreamers" and eventually found her way to El Nido in the pursuit
of Lynx in order to exact revenge for Lucca's abduction. In 1020 AD after
Schala has been freed, Kid travels to the year 1010 AD to save young Serge
from being killed by Lynx. It is this action which causes the timeline to

King Guardia XXI
the ruler of the Kingdom of Guardia in the Middle Ages. He was wounded while
defending his kingdom from Magus' army but was able to make a full recovery
by the end of the war. He acknowledges both Crono and Glenn's actions in
the war and is grateful for them for recovering his missing wife, Queen Leene.
To repay their efforts he graciously recovered the legendary Rainbow Shell
and stored it safely within Guardia Castle.
King Guardia XXXIII
the ruler of the Kingdom of Guardia in the present. He is the father of Marle
and widow to Aliza, the former queen. Deeply concerned for his daughter and
her well being, he forbids her to leave the castle. This leads to heated
arguments between them which become increasingly more hostile throughout
the game. Both sides remain stubborn and the conflict reaches its peak when
the king excommunicates Marle from the royal family. Despite this, he his
deeply hurt and misunderstands the situation, oblivious to the chancellors
strategy of puppeteering the quarrel so as to create disorder in the monarchy.
After the timeline was altered the imposter chancellor accused the king of

For this he is reprimanded by Ayla. Later while Ayla is journeying with Crono,
Kino serves as the temporary chief of the village. He is the love interest
of Ayla and the two become married upon the adventures end. He is the
earliest known ancestor of Marle.

poisoned, joins with Serge if he chooses to find a cure. After the girls
recovery he lends his boat to Serges cause on two conditions: one being
that he be given the Dragon Tear should Serge find it, and the other that

are once again treated as equals. The Commons area is a part of this village.
Alfador remains here as well.
a extraterrestrial being from an unknown planet. It descended to Earth 65
million years ago and burrowed into the planets lithosphere. Lavos'
impact caused climatic changes which lead to the ice age and the extinction
of the Reptites. Humanity was allowed to flourish and even evolved due to
Lavos' influence. It feeds off the energy of the planet and grew stronger
beneath the crust. In the year 1999 Lavos erupted on the planets surface
to rain fiery projectiles across the globe. In the centuries following this
disaster the alien gave birth to its progeny while it took residency upon
Death Peak, the worlds tallest summit. Its ultimate goal was to achieve
a higher evolutionary state by combining its genetic material with that of
the planets native inhabitants. After its defeat by Crono, the dying
Lavos remained stranded within the Darkness of Time whereupon it merged with
Schala to evolve into the Time Devourer.
the offspring of Lavos. They are independent at a young age and feed off
the essence of the planet. If this does not sustain them they will eventually
migrate to other planets to begin a new cycle of destruction. Relatively
weak, they can only receive damage to their mouths. Any attack to the shell
will result in swift retaliation in the form of a needle spray.
a young cave girl found living alone on Gaeas Navel in Home World.
Her father was a courageous warrior but disappeared when Leah was a baby.
Her grandmother told her he "went to the sky" which is most likely a euphemism
for death. The cause of Leahs presence on the island is yet unexplained.
She was separated from her village after facing what she called a "land anger"
and found herself on Gaeas Navel. Evidently a small tyrannosaur came
with her, whom she sometimes battles. She joins Serge in the hope of finding
her father and a means to return to her village. Leahs comments regarding
naming her daughter (should she ever have one) Ayla have lead to much speculation
but it is unclear at this point whether she shares any relation to Chrono
Serge's girlfriend living in Arni Village. She lost her father, Miguel, in
1006 when he ventured out to sea on a stormy night with Serge's father.
She occasionally visits Termina to see her friend Lisa. Leena lives
with her sister Una, mother, grandmother, and their dog, Poshul.
located just north of Truce, it is set at the base of Truce Canyon. Following
Guardia's victory over Magus the square was built and named in the queen's
honor. The centerpiece is the beautiful Leenes Bell. In the year 1000
the site hosts the Millennial Fair, with Nadias Bell being placed at
its center. A partially destroyed Leene Square is also found at the heart
of the Dead Sea. It is yet unknown why it appears there.
Banta was appointed by King Guardia to craft the bell in order for it to
be presented to Queen Leene as a gift. Once Leene Square had been built the
bell was placed at its center where it remained until the year 1000, whereupon
it was replaced with Nadia's Bell. It is said those who hear Leene's Bell
ring with have happy, yet interesting lives.
rules the Kingdom of Guardia during the Middle Ages with her husband; she
is a direct ancestor of Marle. During the war with Magus she was abducted
by Yakra and held prisoner in Manoria Cathedral. Through the efforts
of Frog, Lucca, and Crono she was rescued shortly before her scheduled death.
It is unknown who saved her in the original timeline. Her name is correctly
a rare flower that is unique in that it only thrives in the toxic waters
of Another Worlds Hydra Marshes. Luccia dispatched many dragoons to
recover the specimen but none returned. After Serge retrieved the plant it
was used to activate the artificial life form NeoFio.
a girl who runs an Element shop in Termina with her father. She is good friends
located at the south-western tip of the main island of El Nido, it is a gathering
place to komodo lizards. It is here that Serge is sent to seek komodo scales
so that Leena can make a necklace. In Another World the area was sealed off
to prevent people from venturing to Opassa Beach, the area where Serge had
a young boy living in Arni. In Home World he seemingly likes Kiki and told
her he would find some komodo scales so she could make a necklace.
a brilliant scientist and inventor living in Truce during the present. Though
the townsfolk regard her as an eccentric failure, her Telepod proved to be
a tremendous success as it sparked Cronos adventures through time.
Her Gate Key allowed the party to travel between eras through the utilization
of Gates. Having designed Gato, she is a genius when it comes to mechanics
and single-handedly repaired the 300 year old Robo. Upon Chrono
Triggers end she continued to study and established herself as
a respected scientist; even in the year 2400 top Chronopolis researchers
knew of her time travel theorems involving Time Eggs and black holes. While
walking in the forest in 1004 Lucca found an infant, Kid, and adopted her.
In subsequent years Lucca renovated her house by converting it into an orphanage,
presumably to care for children who had lost their families in the war of
1005. In 1015 her house was burned on the fateful night she was abducted
by Lynx. She possessed knowledge of how to bypass the lock on the Frozen
Flame the Prometheus Circuit had established and Lynx intended to gain this
information. She is said to have been killed by the demi-human in the aftermath.
At the turn of the century she lived with her father, Taban, and mother,
a scientist who grew up working on the Zenan continent. She was a dear friend
and colleague of Lucca. Luccia was employed in a laboratory in Porre but
after her brother died performing an experiment she left the country to escape
the unpleasant memories. Luccia arrived in El Nido and took residency in
Viper Manor where she conducted research. Her expertise is varied as she
is a scholar of both biology and mechanics. She tampers with creating improved
life forms such as NeoFio, who owes its existence in part to Luccia.
Alternatively she is quite adept at dealing with robots. After traveling
to Fort Dragonia Luccia recovered machine parts from the ruins which she
put to use in remodeling the Cybots which patrol the manor grounds. In an
event nine years ago Zelbess was on the verge of death but despite her sincerest
efforts Luccia was unable to save her. She was, however, able to rescue Marcy,
who she has tried her best to support in subsequent years. In the Japanese
release her name was Lutianna.
Mel's black cat.
a feline demi-human with strong political ties to Porre. Lynx's true form
is that of Wazuki, Serge's father. While trying to find a cure for Serge's
panther poisoning in 1006 Wazukis boat was blown off course and came
to shore within the Sea of Eden. At the time an electrical storm forced the
FATE supercomputer to shut down, temporarily allowing passage through the
Pearly Gates. Inside Chronopolis the Frozen Flame healed Serge's body. Within
ten minutes FATE was able to reactivate and began to physically re-model
Wazuki into the form of a cat-like beast, Serge's worst fear immediately
following his attack. Wazuki was to become FATE's biological interface and
execute the computer's wishes outside of the Sea of Eden. It is likely the
change did not happen instantaneously. Many have surmised Wazuki retained
his humanity long enough to escape the facility and bring Serge safely back
to Arni. In the following years he slowly succumbed to FATE's grasp as his
form changed. The fully formed Lynx then appeared four years later to kill
Serge, knowing that the boy's existence could cause the termination of the
timeline. By 1015 Lynx had allied with Harle and the two confronted Lucca,
hoping to gain knowledge of how to disable the lock the Prometheus Circuit
had put on the Frozen Flame. Luccas home was burned and the scientist
was abducted, later to be killed by Lynx. In subsequent years the demi-human
allied himself with General Viper. In Home World Lynx returned to the Dead
Sea in 1017 with the general and his dragoons, whereupon they all became
frozen within the Tower of Gheddon. However in Another World this expedition
was not made and Lynx remained as a guest within Viper Manor, waiting for
Serge to arrive from the other dimension. This event fulfilled, he lured
the boy to Fort Dragonia where the two switched bodies using the Dragon Tear.
Lynx, now inhabiting Serges body, was able to gain admittance to the
room in which the Frozen Flame was held as the key was, quite literally,
Serge. After merging with FATE inside Chronopolis Lynx was destroyed along
with the supercomputer at the hands of Serge.
