The Chrono Cross Story Page
Serge, the story’s main protagonist, is an
energetic young man who has grown up happily in the simple Oceanside
village of Arni. It’s a peaceful hippy town near
coral beaches and exotic tropical forests. It’s also home to a
wizened village chief, a bunch of wacky shanty houses, and
Serge’s mom and semi-girlfriend
Leena. Things are going very well for
Serge. He’s well-liked by the town and the only
really bad thing that’s ever happened occurred way back when he was
a kid—he was attacked by a jungle panther and barely survived. With
that behind him, and now a healthy teen, he spends lazy days with
Leena on the pier. Eventually, Leena asks him to
bring her some of those trendy Komodo dragons scales so she can turn
them into jewelry and he sets off on a simple first quest…
…Little does Serge know that this is the
beginning of the end of his peaceful, ordinary life. As he meets
with Leena on the beach and gives her the scales, something bizarre
happens. The warm coastal ebb, the sea breeze, the rainbow of
coral—everything blends into a stunning CG flashback. A black
panther… the jungle… an explosion… and a deadly tidal wave wash over
him; in his mind…
And suddenly, everything is still. He awakens on the beach.
Leena’s gone and he’s not sure if the wave and
explosion were real or imagined. An old man approaches him from
nearby and asks who he is… An old man who’s a fellow villager and
who should know very well who Serge is. It’s as if
Serge has become a stranger (and even stranger
still are the events that unfold next)….
The story follows Serge as he attempts to unravel what happened--and what's real and what's not. He meets up with a motley crew and they travel the world...
