Chrono (クロノ Kurono?) is the main male protagonist of the series.


Chrono does not only have one form, but has a child-like form, an adult-like form, and a demon form. In his child form he looks to be a charming 12 - 13 years old with an olive complexion, red eyes and pointed ears. He also has long purple hair that is usually in a braid tied at the end with a yellow ribbon and  with a headband on his forehead for most of the anime and manga. He also wears a red coat. Underneath that he wears a white dress shirt and tie. He also wears red shorts and has black tights with white long socks and brown shoes.

In his adult like form, when he was with Aion and the Sinners, He appears to be a handsome young man and his face similar to the face of his child-like form except more mature. He wears a poncho and loher pants with black boats.

In his Demon form he looks similar to his adult form, but now with longer pointed ears, with gold eyes and marks on his cheeks also with three red gem like marks on his forehead. His long hair is placed with a vertebrae like tails from the base of his head and shorter hair. He also has horns, but since he no longer had them he has clams from where his horns are supposed to be. He also has two different type of clothes when he transforms to his Demon form.

When he met Rosette and Joshua, he appearance was that of his child form with a poncho that was tattered and his clothing was similar to when he was with Magdalene, Aion and the sinners. 


Chrono is sweet natured and is very kind and gentle, loyal and friendly. It is rare that he gets upset or angered, but when he does he has quite the temper and if provoked he turns into his Demon form. He is often at war with himself due to his demon nature, which he tries to reject and deny. He often blames himself when things go wrong or when his friend and close ones are hurt or sad. Due to this he blames himself for what happened with the tragic death of Mary Magdalene, the first person he had really cared - deeply for and loved. He also blames himself for taking time away from Rosette and tries very hard to not take away her time and often refuses when Rosette asks him to turn to his Demon form however due to his gentleness and care to Rosette, he relents. When he lets his temper get the best of him, he breaks the seal himself, but shows amount of guilt afterwards.

He protects his friends from harm and always wants to keep them at his side to keep them from harm and that is seen many times with Rosette. He often gets himself hurt for the sake of others. 

He gets flustered easily when put into awkward situations such as when Satella flirts with him and when Rosette teases him. In Episode 3 he had gotten flustered when Rosette openly flirted and teased him about admiring her with the pink dress. 


Chrono anime


Chrno's background in the anime is slightly different from the manga. 

Escape From Pandemonium  In the manga, Chrono is born from Pandemonium and is seen more as a hybrid since his mother was taken to be the next Pandemonium while she was pregnant with both Chrono and Aion. When both Aion and Chrono were born, they were considered dangerous in the demon world (Pandemonium), nevertheless they were treated as any other demon. Chrono, due to his friendly and loyal nature, followed Aion, his brother along with other sinners in the battle to be free of Pandemonium with Dafau the general. Chrono was considered to be Aion's sword and killed thousands of demons and the battle had only left six sinners, Aion and Chrono included.

The anime follows along the storyline of the manga except that Chrono and Aion are just like any other demon in Pandemonium, just more dangerous and have more battle skill. They escape Pandemonium the same way and Aion convinces Chrono that they should have freedom to do and to choose what they want instead of following Pandemonium like they are supposed to. Chrono, who already felt no belonging in Pandemonium, follows Aion with the sinners. 

Holy Woman:  Mary Magdalene

Chrno then travels with the Sinners and Aion, roaming the earth until Aion figures out a plan to defeat Pandemonium once and for all. Aion devises a plan that includes the Apostle Magdalene and orders Chrono to kidnap her. Once Chrono arrives to take her, she had already known who he was and what was to be done and didn not try to escape since she wanted to be free from all the restriction the order had placed upon her. Through the careful precision of Magdalene, Chrono escapes the guard, taking Magdalene with him. She is easily liked by the sinners and is included. Chrono's relationship with Magdalene develops. The Sinner Shadar then tries to read Pandemonium's memories, the experiment goes wrong and Mary is possessed by Pandemonium, who eats away Magdalenes soul slowly. Aion notices this and orders Chrono to kill her. When he grabs for her neck Magdalene confesses her deep care for Chrono and that she already knew that this was to happen. Chrono, full of emotion by Magdalenes confession refuses to kill her and tries to plead with Aion for another way in dealing with the problem. Aion then fights with Chrono, taking off Chrono's horns, making Magdalene and Chrono fall from Eden. Magdalene then creates a contract with Chrono to save his life without his consent and he fully heals. They then travel together, running from Aion, Mary's life slipping away because of her contract with Chrono and he does not know of it. One day he draws water from a river and Shadar presents the watch to him sadly and he finally realizes that Aion has found them. He goes to protect Mary and Aion stabs Chrono from the back, stabbing Magdalene in the process as well. Chrono in his anger then transforms to his Demon form, stealing Magdalenes life in the process. After safely away from Aion Chrono sees Magdalene die in his arms and now with no Astral to sustain him in his Demon form, he reverts to a child and is locked in a tomb with Magdalene by Ewan Remington.


Fifty years later, Chrono is found by Rosette and Joshua. While he tries to tell them to leave, Rosette notices that he is weak and offers him candy, making Chrono astonished since the children were not frightened by him. The children then befriend Chrono, visiting him as much as they can and giving him food and Chrono finally feels at peace and feels happiness with the Rosette and Joshua. The happiness was not for long however and Aion comes along the same night Rosette goes to the tomb to tell Chrono that Joshua was leaving the orphanage. Aion asks Chrono to come back with him and he would give back his horns. Chrono then refuses and tells Aion that he doesn't need them and that he had found his precious thing there. Aion, already had a plan in set tells him he gave the horns to someone else, making refrence to Joshua. Chrono and Rosette go the orphanage, Chrono already transformed in his Demon form and flies Rosette to Joshua. Chrono and Rosette then witnesses that the rest of the orphanage is frozen in time, this caused by Joshua. Chrono sensing that Joshua had no control over the powers takes Rosette so she wouldn't freeze. She pleads with him to help Joshua and he explains to her that it could not be done since he didn't have his horns or a contractor. She then pleads with him to make a contract with her to which he refuses to do so. Her persistence carries on and he asks if she was ready with the decision she was to make since it would drain her life. She tells him then that she wants to save Joshua and be with him and Joshua being explorers and being together forever. Chrono then makes a contract with Rosette and he reverts back to a child, wounded and weak. Ewan Remington then finds them and takes them to the Magdalen order.
