Chris (クリス Kurisu?) is a supporting character that appears in the CROSS ANGE Rondo of Angel and Dragon television series. She is a Norma whom was a heavy artillery member of the First Troop and piloted the Para-mail AW-ZZR520 (CR) Hauser Chris Custom.
During Julio's attack on Arzenal, she initially joined "Libertus", along with Hilda and Rosalie. However, she later switched her allegiance to Embryo, after he used his abilities to revive her after she was killed during the attack. She was then given possession of the Ragna-mail EM-CBX004 Theodra.
Personality & Character
Chris appears as a shy and fragile girl with a raspy voice, which is highly deceiving of her being majorly sharp-tongued (such as her insult towards Ersha's underwear). She's apparently perverted, as shown in her relationships with Hilda, Zola, and Rosalie
However she is also far more perceptive than Rosalie as she deduced Hilda's true feelings towards them with very little information at hand aside from her desertion. She is also rather vulnerable to being betrayed and took out her anger against Hilda for it spitting in Hilda's face for escaping from Arzenal leaving her behind, with no trace of her usual shy expression and behavior on her face nor body language and was very hurt when Ange caused the Death of Zola to the point of constantly attempting to bully her to make her pay. Yet she is also easy to forgive those who have wronged her being the first one to admit her mistake, wanting to reconcile and befriend Ange, and forgive Hilda for her betrayal and followed her into battle despite having doubt that they could survive defying humans.
She is a bit intimidated by Jill and her authority.
Skills and Abilities
Being a Norma she can "defy" the Light of Mana and is immune to its affects. She is also shown to be a competent pilot.
Due to Ange being directly responsible for Zola's death, she hates the fallen princess and tries to get revenge by bullying her constantly. She, together with Hilda and Rosalie engage in a form of ménage à trois in Zola's room, which is now owned by Hilda. Like the two, she too despises Ange, not only because she caused the death of Zola, but also because Ange is able to make more money than anyone else in the unit, where it is revealed that mail-riders are paid according to the number and type of DRAGON's they kill. (CROSS ANGE: "A Loner's Revolt")
After that, Ange saved the entire unit from being killed by a new, powerful DRAGON. She finally accepted Ange and befriends her, yet to Hilda's dislike as she still holds a strong grudge towards Ange over Zola's death. (CROSS ANGE: "Salia's Depression")
After Hilda's return in Arzenal, she and Rosalie visited him in prison Rosalie asked her why she deserted and why wouldn't she talk to them, by affirming they are friends but Chris realized that she never thought of them as friends , Hilda confirmed and says that she was just playing along with them. A furious Chris spat in Hilda's face and says that she should have died and that she bought Zola's room. (CROSS ANGE: "Goodbye from the Gallows")
She defended the base of the attack of Scuna-Class DRAGONs and heard a strange song. After that the mysterious Para-mail destroyed the half of island, Jill sent Salia's squadron to intercept the enemies. After Ange's fight, they returned to Arzenal. (CROSS ANGE: "Dragon Song")
Jill deputizes Hilda as interim squad leader while Salia is in detention for disobeying orders. She and Rosalie grumble in the first instance but accept when Hilda proposes them her place.

It was than the "rescue message" reached the group, and they rendezvoused inside along with the other who witnessed the humans underneath dragon skin. It was around then that Jill proclaimed that the message to rescue them was untrue and Chris worded that the rescue was a lie. Jill than gave the Norma an ultimatum, as worded by Hilda: Die following the Commander's orders or be killed by the humans. Chris proclaimed that they could not defy the humans and survive by Hilda proclaimed that they wouldn't know until they tried. Chris chose to follow Hilda down to the Para-mails along with Rosalie and Ersha where they were soon joined by Tanya and her squad to aid in the fight against the humans. When the Tanya Squad takes off Chris notices metallic disk-like saucers that soon produce spikes and attack the lift off pad trapping the remaining Mail-Riders without their Para-mails seconds before the power went out. As the Maintenance Crew attempted the move the Villkiss down manually they were soon brought under fire by Julio's forces. Chris than lost all hope and was about to be shot when Hilda shielded her from an attack and retaliated against the attacker. When Chris questioned why Hilda responded that she doesn't let anyone die because that is what the first squad is about, leaving Chris speechless. The group continued to hold their position until an explosion above them sealed the elevator shaft stopping them from bringing down Para-mails. However soon after Ange came rushing into the battle, shooting the enemy taking the Villkiss and clearing away the path with her weapons, Chris watched as this occurred. They than prepared for take off with Chris finally acknowledging Hilda as captain, however as they were setting off a survivor from Ange's attack came to and shot Chris in the head, making her crash into a support column. Rosalie than contacted Chris and told her that she'd save her, with Chris, barely conscious thanking her but in the midst of saying her name her Para-mail exploded, sending her and what's left of her Para-mail failing to their doom. Embryo than appeared before Chris's body walking slowly towards her and shortly thereafter restored her to life at the same time that he did to a girl that Ersha was holding just before Julio's death.
