Another World Fargo's ship that serves as a home base to the captain
and his pirate crew. The ship is sometimes cloaked in a fog to hide it from
Lynx's forces. Because of this some have interpreted it to be a ghost ship
patrolling the waters of El Nido. However during Serges imprisonment
on the vessel the real phantom ship besieges Fargos. With the
crewmen overwhelmed, Serges team lended aide in repelling the
Home World Fargo's ship that has been converted into a casino-themed cruise
ship. The staff is comprised entirely of enslaved demi-humans from Marbule.
The vessel is named after Fargos deceased wife.
a poison resistant outfit that must be equipped before venturing into the
polluted Hydra Marshes of Another World. Without wearing this a person will
slowly lose health when traveling in the toxic swamp.
Sage of Marbule
leader of the demi-humans of Marbule. Though he had a previous
friendship with Fargo, in Home World he became enslaved by the man
and was forced to work cleaning the decks of the S.S. Zelbess. He aided Serge
in opening a path to Death's Door by giving him the Fiddler
Crab artifact. Later he taught Nikki the song of Marbule so that the
dream creatures haunting the island could be materialized and destroyed.
a small village found just south of Zenan Bridge in the Middle Ages. The
town is rather uneventful and has completely disappeared by the present,
though it is unknown why.
a treasure handed down through the generations in Orlhas family. When
Orlha and Tia were separated as infants the jewel was divided between them
so each girl would have a memento of her sister. These shards reinforced
the bond of sisterhood and provided comfort, especially to Orlha, when she
longed for her sibling. After she crossed into Home World Orlha was given
Tias half of the brooch and the gem was once again united. It is said
to hold the prayers of the girls parents and serves as the keepsake
by which Orlha will have to remember her late sister.
princess of the Kingdom of Zeal. She was one of the few Enlightened Ones
to show compassion toward the Earthbound Ones and acknowledged them as equals.
She cared deeply for her brother, Janus, and mother, Queen Zeal. Due to this
sentiment she felt compelled to obey when the queen demanded she use her
dreamstone pendant to operate the Mammon Machine so more energy could be
drawn from Lavos. In the original timeline her fate during the Ocean Palace
disaster is unknown, though many assume she teleported herself to safety.
However in the altered timeline her pendants remaining energy was spent
in teleporting both Magus and Cronos friends to the surface. As a result
she stayed behind, only to find herself helpless when a Gate formed before
her. She was instantly enveloped by it and sent to the Darkness of Time.
There she met Lavos and the two combined into a new life form, the Time Devourer.
Before she could succumb to the aliens control Schala used her pendant
to replicate herself and sent her twin to the year 1004 AD. In 1006 it was
Schalas interference to the timeline which caused the magnetic storm
that allowed for Wazuki to enter Chronopolis. Through Serges use of
the Chrono Cross a soothing melody was generated which separated the girl
from Lavos. She returned with Serge to his dimension, though her final
whereabouts are ambiguous. It is probable she remained on El Nido in 1020
based upon the scene in Chrono Cross ending where she stood
on Opassa Beach.
Sea of Eden
the area in the east of El Nido that is completely isolated from the rest
of the islands. In truth this serves as a defensive barrier as Chronopolis
exists within this region. The only entrance is through the Pearly Gates
which is sealed shut by FATE.
son to Wazuki and Marge. While playing near Arni he was poisoned by a panther
when he was three years old. Wazuki and Miguel sought the help of the healers
of Marbule but, due to Schalas influence, their sailboat was blown
off course where it came ashore inside the Sea of Eden. Due to Schalas
magnetic storm the defensive barriers surrounding Chronopolis were rendered
temporarily inoperative, allowing Wazuki to enter the facility. Schala called
to him via the Frozen Flame to bring Serge nearer. The flame nullified the
toxin completely and, through contacting the artifact, Serge was henceforth
known as the Arbiter of Time. As such, he posed a threat to the future since
his actions could release the Time Devourer. Lynx attempted to kill Serge
at Opassa Beach in 1010 in order to prevent the future's destruction, but
Kid of 1020 traveled back in time to save him. It was then the dimensions
split into Home World in which Serge was saved and Another World in which
Lynx succeeded in drowning him.
like its name implies, these are the ruins of a once great citys sanitation
system. By 2300 they serve only as an underground passage linking two continents.
A myriad of pests call the area home, among which is Sir Krawlie, the
self-appointed ruler of the realm.
a forest found on the northeastern edge of the central island of El Nido.
Rare mushrooms are able to grow in this area due to both the shade provided
by the immense trees and the damp atmosphere. Quaffids can also be found
in this area. A secret tunnel leads from the forest to the well in Viper
Shaker Brothers, the
Solt and Peppor. In Another World they aspired to be Acacia Dragoons but
were barely accepted. As a result they are often looked down upon by the
other Dragoons. Karsh has taken them under his wing and guides them. In Home
World they also became Dragoons, but in an accident both lost their memories.
They came to be a part of Sneff's magic show aboard the S.S. Zelbess and
were given the names Lank (Solt) and Stout (Peppor). They no longer remember
Karsh and his guidance.
used during the Millennial Fair, silver points could be obtained from winning
games on display. They could be traded in for money or spent when visiting
the Tent of Horrors.
large insect-like beast who fancies himself as the ruler of the Sewer Access.
He blocks the exit and challenges Crono to battle yet is easily defeated.
while living with his grandmother in Termina Skelly loved stuffing himself
on squid gut pasta, a hobby which resulted in considerable weight gain. Regarded
as plump and cheerful, Skelly sought to entertain by joining the circus whereupon
he became an acrobatic clown. Despite having achieved his dream Skelly faced
inner turmoil. He was both angry and resentful toward himself for he didnt
believe he had any talent. Sometime later Skelly evidently died and his bones
were scattered throughout El Nido. His parts recovered by Serge, Skelly was
reconstructed and again resumed residency with his grandmother in Termina.
In Home World it is unclear whether Skelly ever joined the circus as it is
only stated he was taken away by the Porre military at an earlier date. His
fate beyond this is a mystery.
one of the six resident dragon gods of El Nido. This one embodies the White
element, which corresponds to luminescence and heavenly matter. It is found
at the top of Sky Dragon Isle in Another World.
Sky Dragon Isle
found in the western seas of El Nido, it is here where the Sky Dragon resides
in Another World. In Home World Starky has taken residency here and steals
star fragments from visitors to the island. In actuality the island is the
top of the submerged Terra Tower which has been sealed beneath the waves
by FATE for thousands of years. Natives of El Nido regard the island as a
holy site and consider it taboo to venture near it.
one of the two parts of a transportation system in the Kingdom of Zeal. Skyways
exist on the planet's icy surface. Those who used the skyway would be teleported
to the floating continents of Zeal high in the atmosphere where they would
arrive on a platform known as a land bridge.
one of Magus' three generals. He is a purple skinned Mystic who is an expert
swordsman. He uses his own blade, the Slasher, in battle. He appears to be
the youngest of the three generals, but his exact age cannot be determined.
In the Japanese version he is portrayed as very loyal and incredibly respectful
toward his master, something that does not readily show after translation.
a small tavern in present day Porre. The proprietor is in possession of delicious
jerky but refuses to part with it unless paid a hefty price. A kilwala pianist
an aged magician gravely indebted to Fargo as a result of the corrupt casino
aboard the S.S. Zelbess. Sneff, unaware the game was rigged, continued to
play, hoping he would win the jackpot, but succeeding in only sinking further
into debt. His is quite literally a slave to Fargo and his only recourse
is to work off his debt by performing on the cruise ship. In the Crazy Ocean
bar he stars in his own magic show. The main act is "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof"
in which he transforms a volunteer from the audience into a feline. He gained
this ability after eating a mysterious berry given to him by a female troll.
After Fargos deceptions are revealed, Sneff succeeds in buying his
freedom and is finally allowed to leave the ship. However he chooses to stay
with his family, that is, his fellow performers aboard the Zelbess. In 1017
he found the dragoons Solt and Peppor, both of whom where afflicted with
amnesia, and gave them jobs in his show as the comedy duo Lank and Stout.
Other members include former pirates, Fat and Slim.
one of the two Shaker brothers. He is tall and slender with a thin mustache.
In Another World he is a struggling member of the Acacia Dragoons under the
watchful eye of Karsh. Home World finds him performing tricks as a part of
Sneff's magic show as "Lank". Solts Japanese name is Salton.
shape-shifting god of war who inhabits a room at the End of Time. He grants
Crono's team magic after meeting with them. He changes into a total of six
forms throughout Crono's adventure.
a female demi-human that was trapped in the dimensional vortex for an unknown
period of time. It is suggested she became caught in it only recently as
she seems to know the fortune teller in Termina. She has the ability to change
her appearance, much like Flea, and can assume the form of monsters she has
defeated in battle.
squid gut pasta
a specialty dish served in the bar of Termina. It is a rare treat and is
reportedly quite tasty.
a splinter of Starky's spaceship. When the saucer crashed into the seas of
El Nido in Home World it was shattered into many tiny starfish shaped pieces.
By diving into the El Nido Triangle one can recover star fragments and return
them to Starky, who has taken residency on Sky Dragon Isle. The pieces also
provide a layer of oxygen so one can breathe under the surface. Star Fragments
are regarded as being able to bring good luck and are sometimes worn for
this reason. Perhaps not coincidentally they also have the power to ward
off many harmful status ailments such as burns and the flu. In Another World
the ship remains intact so no star fragments exist in that dimension.
an extraterrestrial that crash landed in the seas of El Nido. In Home World
Starkys UFO suffered damaged and splintered into various pieces known
as Star Fragments. Starky chose to inhabit the vacant Sky Dragon Isle where
he took back what fragments he could from explorers who visited the island.
Victory was assured as he grew to monumental size and often won through sheer
intimidation. After being bested in battle by Serge Starky tagged along in
the hope his spaceship was still functional in the other dimension. His wishes
were validated as in Another World Starkys flying saucer survived the
impact and remained fully operational under the waves of the El Nido Triangle.
Late in the journey Starky took an anti-gravity device from this ship and
installed it onto Serges boat so the team could fly to the entrance
of Terra Tower. Being a foreigner Starky is naïve regarding human customs
and emotions and comes off as being very innocent. Terminas fortune
teller states Starky is "fated to make a grave choice" but it is unknown
what Starkys purpose was. One ending suggests he was a scout sent to
earth in preparation for an alien invasion. It is open to interpretation
whether this ending falls in line with the intended story of the game or
if it was meant only for humor purposes.
in Another World she serves as the shrine maiden and assistant to Direa in
Guldove. In Home World she has already succeeded Direa as the High Priestess
and serves as the villages chief. There she loans Serge the Dragon
Tear and assists him in regaining his rightful body in Fort Dragonia.
a cave set within a mountain in the northern regions of the world. Beams
of sunlight perpetually shine through a hole in the cave's ceiling. Placing
a Moonstone under the rays of light will recharge it into a Sun Stone if
enough time passes.
the subterranean cavern located in the desert surrounding Fionas villa.
The fossorial monsters within were responsible for the destruction of the
forest immediately above. The presence of Retinite, a massive skeleton akin
to Zombor, suggests the possibility Mystics may have played a role in instigating
the desertification. It is interesting to note the sand whirlpool, which
served as the entrance to the cave, only became visible if a particular citizen
of Zeal chose to plant the sapling given to her by the gurus. The causative
link between the two events has yet to be determined.
found on the floating southern continent of Zeal, it is here where the Sun
Stone was sealed after the Kingdom of Zeal took to the skies. After the fall
of Zeal the Sun Palace re-emerged in the ruined future of 2300. The Sun Stone
within is still guarded by Son of Sun, as it was its duty to protect the
treasure from being stolen.
a Moonstone that has been charged with the nearly limitless power of the
sun. The Kingdom of Zeal originally used the power of the Sun Stone as its
primary energy source but the practice was abandoned once Lavos was discovered.
The Sun Stone itself was then locked within the Sun Palace, not to be seen
again until Crono recovered it in 2300. However by that time its powers had
completely faded. Crono managed to re-charge the stone by leaving it in the
Sun Keep for 65 million years. A fraction of the artifacts energy went
into making Luccas Wondershot and Cronos Rainbow. On the last
night of the Millennial Fair Taban used the Sun Stone to create the closing

the two often work together on creating new things, the most recent of which
being the Telepod. He aided Lucca throughout her adventure by designing
fire-resistant armor for her.
the young boy who found the Hero's Medal in Porre's pub after Frog dropped
it. Henceforth he was mistaken for the legendary hero. He ventured into the
Denadoro Mountains to recover the Masamune but ran away in fright early in
his adventure. He later admitted he was not the true hero and gave Crono
the medal to give to its rightful owner.
an invention designed by Lucca and Taban on display at the Millennial Fair.
By stepping onto the left platform the user is teleported to the nearby right
pod. When Marle tried the device its energy reacted with her dreamstone pendant.
The amplification of this power caused a Gate to form which pulled Marle
in. Prior to being approved for human use the machine was tested using the
familys pets, which are conspicuously missing from the game.
Tent of Horrors
Norstein Bekkler's carnival tent. Inside, a person can trade Silver Points
to play one of three games. If the player wins he can be awarded cats, cat
food, musical poyozo dolls, or a full size doll of himself.
a bustling port lying on the north-western tip of El Nido's largest island;
it is also El Nido's largest town. It was likely established in the early
days of colonization by Porre. The town is governed by General Viper and
an annual Viper Festival is held in the summer to pay tribute to his benevolent
rule. In Home World the town came to be occupied by the Porre military after
the general's disappearance in 1017. Soon after the towns economy suffered.
This, paired with the loss of their beloved leader, left many residents feeling
a cavern which serves as the refuge of the Earthbound Ones. Inside they have
constructed the rudimentary village of Algetty. The end of the cave connects
to the chains at the base of Mt. Woe, but is guarded by a fierce imp and
his loyal pet beasts.
another name for Dinopolis, the city of the Reptites. After the seal of FATE
is broken Terra Tower is free to rise from the seas and hovers over the western
ocean of El Nido. The only way to access is it by flight. The dragon god
waits atop the tower with the Frozen Flame. After the dragon is defeated
the tower undergoes a strange transformation in which it seems to form a
pterodactyl-like head and wings. It is unclear why this happens but the entrance
is sealed after this point.
Orlhas twin sister who lies unconscious in Guldoves clinic in
Home World. Her affliction remains a mystery; all that is known is she suddenly
fainted and has not responded to any form of treatment. Orlhas presence
awakens the girl, allowing the sisters to meet for the first time. The reunion
was bittersweet as Tia passed away almost immediately. In the afterlife her
spirit remains with and continues to support Orlha. The whereabouts of Another
Worlds Tia are unknown.
Time Crash, the
name given to the event which drew Chronopolis into the past and introduced
Dinopolis from an alternate timeline. In 2400 researchers inside Chronopolis
were conducting experiments on the Frozen Flame when an error caused the
building to become engulfed in a massive Gate. Because of this the facility
was transported 10,000 years into the past. Additionally, the Reptite city
of Dinopolis was pulled into the human dimension, most likely to counter-balance
the stress inflicted onto the space-time continuum by Chronopolis voyage.
Kid suggested it was the "awakening Lavos" that summoned the Flame across
time in order for the two to unite. It is assumed the Lavos she speaks of
is that of 12,000 BC. To further complicate matters it is stated the Time
Crash was secretly arranged by Belthasar as part of the elaborate Project
a conglomeration of Schala, the Dragon God, and the defeated Lavos which
nests within the Darkness of Time. There it waits until the Arbiter of Time
releases into the timeline. Once this happens it will begin to consume not
just that dimension, but all in existence, as it seeks total destruction
of all matter. By utilizing the resonant harmonies of the planet Serge succeeded
in destroying the beast while simultaneously freeing Schala from its grasp.
Ambiguity still remains amongst players regarding the difference between
this creature and the one which resides atop Terra Tower. For clarification
on this matter please refer to sections 1 and 9 of the
a device built Gaspar during the ice age of 12,000 BC. He took it with him
when he was transported to the End of Time. The egg's full nature is a mystery,
but when used under the right circumstances it has the power to freeze time.
It was in this way that Crono's friends were able to use it to prevent Crono's
death. In Chrono Cross Belthasar has built his own time egg which
is capable of opening a special Gate that links to the Darkness of Time.
Time Research Lab, the
the precursor to Chronopolis. The lab was established by Belthasar in 2300
after the Day of Lavos was prevented. In this peaceful future humanity was
allowed to prosper. As a result people continued to work on the lab until
it became what we know as Chronopolis.
an explorer that was hired by the mayor of San Dorino to find the Rainbow
Shell. Unfortunately, early in his quest he spent all his money on liquor
and turned up empty handed. However he did not completely fail as some time
later he managed to pinpoint the shells location to Giant's Claw; he
ventured within but ultimately failed to reach the treasure. During his travels
he continually cadged money off Crono to buy more drinks, often providing
only insignificant clues as repayment. His tombstone lies on West Cape; he
died on 3-6-634 AD.
descendant of the famous Toma Levine, he explores the islands of El Nido
in 1020. In Home World he ran out of funds during his expedition
and had to take a job doing landscaping in Arni to raise money. He is
knowledgeable of the terrain and can be counted on to give vital information.
He is accompanied by his assistant Ash.
Tower of Gheddon
the building located at the center of the Dead Sea. It is a conglomeration
of many structures that have been seemingly thrown together in a chaotic
manner. Deep within the structure lies a Gate which takes one to a scene
depicting Leene Square at sunset. Miguel defends this area, presumably guarding
the Frozen Flame of Home World. Once he is defeated the tower, as well as
the rest of the Dead Sea, vanishes.
a dilapidated structure located directly south of Bangor Dome. It serves
as a refuge for the few struggling humans within. Though they are largely
isolated from the people of Arris Dome, one man did manage to survive the
trek across the ruins of Lab 16 to arrive here.
a village on the northern Zenan continent that is under the rule of the Kingdom
of Guardia. It is here where Crono and Lucca live. In the year 1005 the town
was burned to the ground by the Porre army during its war with Guardia.
a small ravine carved into a mountain just north of Truce in the Middle Ages.
Here is found the Gate through which Janus arrived, as well as the one which
connects to Lucca's Telepod. Following Guardias victory of Magus the
infamous Leene Square was built in this region.
Azala's castle that is set high atop a plateau in a volcanic region of the
Prehistoric Era. Many Laruba villagers were held prisoner here following
the Reptites raid on the North Woods. After the final confrontation
between Azala and Ayla Lavos descended upon the castle leaving nothing but
an immense crater where the fortress once stood. Remains of the castle resurfaced
in the Middle Ages inside the caverns of Giant's Claw. The Tyrano Lair is
only accessible by flying dactyls.
Leenas lively sister. She believes Leena is too uptight and wishes
her sister would learn to control her temper. In Home World she
urges Serge to help make Leena more well-mannered and feminine. In Another
World, as Leena is single, Una thinks her sisters getting a boyfriend
would solve the problem.
a specialty treat being served during the Viper Festival. Ingredients include:
ground Heckran bone, water from Water Dragon Isle, sugar, and spices. All
this is wrapped inside a piece of Beeba skin and is baked using hot coals
retrieved from Mt. Pyre. Dragon's Glory can also be used for extra flavor.
Viper Cup, the
an annual competition held in El Nido in which swordsmen are given the chance
to compete. Presumably sponsored by General Viper, it also goes by the name
Tournament of Swords. Little is known about it, but when it is held it is
divided into distinct divisions for varying skill levels. Years ago in the
youth division Dario received first place, Karsh came in second, and Glenn
Viper Festival, the
an annual celebration in which the citizens of El Nido rejoice and give thanks
to their noble governor, General Viper; 1020 marks the 100th anniversary
of this event. In Another World the Magical Dreamers were scheduled to play
during the festivities but the show was postponed indefinitely due to Serge's
break in at Viper Manor. In Home World the festival has been canceled each
year since the general's disappearance in 1017.
the exquisite mansion of General Viper built around 900 AD by his ancestors.
It sits atop high cliffs overlooking the sea, making a raid nearly impossible.
Within are housed the Acacia Dragoons, Viper's family, and Luccia's laboratory.
In Another World the Porre military occupied the premises shortly after Viper
was stabbed by Lynx. In Home World the building is nothing but rubble as
it was destroyed by an unknown force shortly after the
general's disappearance in 1017.
Viper Manor Bluffs

cliffs. The bluffs are perilous to climb as water jets make the path slippery.
Guards also patrol the top of the cliff to prevent intruders from breaking

the benevolent governor of the El Nido archipelago. He was promoted to the
rank of general in the Porre military after garnering a positive reputation
as the leader of the Acacia Dragoons. In recent years he has retired from
the army and serves as lord of El Nido. When approached by Lynx he formed
a partnership with the demi-human, perhaps to learn more regarding the Frozen
Flame. In an expedition to the the Dead Sea in 1017 the general, his troops,
and Lynx all perished, frozen in time before they could reach the flame.
In Another World the general remains active since he never made this journey.

one of the six resident dragon gods of El Nido. This one embodies the Blue
element, which controls the powers of water and ice. It rests within a cavern
on Water Dragon Isle in Home World. It is worth mentioning this dragon assisted
Serge by lending him the Ice Breath, an artifact which froze lava, so the
boy could venture through Mount Pyre.
Water Dragon Isle
a small island in the south of El Nido. In Home World it is home to both
a faerie village and the Water Dragon. The presence of the dragon allows
water to freely flow across the island; the isle has become barren and dry

the husband to Marge and father of Serge. He presumably, like most men in
Arni, lead a modest life through fishing. In 1006 he set sail with his friend
Miguel in order to seek help for Serge, who had been poisoned by a panther's
venom. Eventually he came to discover Chronopolis and searched the facility
for assistance. While there, FATE altered his genetic code so that he would
take the appearance of a feline demi-human. In the following years Wazuki
lost his identity while he surrendered to FATE's control and became Lynx.

possessed a form of magic which allowed him to assume the appearance of a
normal human. In this way he impersonated the kingdoms chancellor and
infiltrated Guardia Castle to get closer to his victim. The kidnapping a
success, Yakra held Leene captive deep within the Manoria Cathedral. Had
it not been for Crono, Lucca, and Frog the beast would have murdered the
descendent of Yakra who vowed vengeance against Crono for eliminating his
ancestor. He, too, impersonated Guardia's chancellor and worked within the
castle to cause instability in the kingdom. Hoping to destroy Crono, he accused
him of the false abduction of Marle which resulted in the boys death
sentence. That plot foiled, he later played with Marles emotions by
lying to her about the cause of her mothers death. His plan was to
tear the royal family apart by inflaming their already tense relationship.
Finally, the imposter framed the king to make it look as though he had pawned
the royal treasure, the Rainbow Shell, for money. The scheme is thwarted
by Marle and Yakra XIII is destroyed in the castle's courtroom.

Enlightened Ones regard Zeal Palace as being the center of the universe.
Zeal, Kingdom of
monarchy which ruled in 12,000 BC. It is comprised of four floating continents,
each named after one of the cardinal directions. In previous years the king
had died which granted Queen Zeal total authority. The realm was incredibly
advanced, having the knowledge and resources to invent the worlds first
aircraft, the Blackbird, and the famed underwater Ocean Palace. Its technological
success would not be duplicated for millennia. At the height of its success
its entire citizenry boasted powerful magic. Ultimately the queen endeavored
to achieve immortality by harnessing Lavos energy. This dream was shattered
when her greed got too strong. The continual drawing of Lavos' powers briefly
summoned the creature to the surface, prompting it to attack the planet.
Most of the alien's projectiles were absorbed by Zeal's floating landmasses.
The kingdom was instantly destroyed and sank beneath the waves in a single
night. In the far future the kingdom is regarded as a myth as nothing remains
to verify its having existed.
absolute ruler of the Kingdom of Zeal in the year 12,000 BC. Though once
a gentle woman, after discovering Lavos she found a way to absorb its energy
and quickly became consumed with greed. This transition came about almost
immediately and soon her aspirations were monumental as she wanted to become
immortal. She severely punished any who opposed her and unhesitatingly exposed
her own daughter to incredible danger by using Schala to achieve her selfish
demands. All this time Lavos held an unbreakable influence over her. Queen
Zeal temporarily achieved her desires as she was able to live inside of the
Black Omen for thousands of years. It wasn't until the arrival of Crono and
the resulting destruction of both the Mammon Machine and Omen that the queen
was released from Lavos' grasp. It is unknown whether she survived the
destruction of the Black Omen. She was the mother to both Schala and Janus.

was destroyed in 600 by Magus' troops but was promptly repaired by Guardia's
soldiers. Soon after, the site became a battleground as the Mystics fought
to push through the kingdoms last defenses. Through Cronos help
Guardia secured the bridge and repelled the Mystic forces, commanded by Ozzie.
The bridge remains intact during the present and is one of two ways people
can travel between continents; the other is the ferry.
