Kid (キッド Kiddo?) is a swashbuckling, gritty thief with a penchant for radical action and serves as Chrono Cross' main heroine. In the English version, she speaks with an Australian accent, which includes many colloquialisms, such as "bugger" and "mate".



Kid has blue eyes and messy blonde hair that she wears in a sectioned ponytail. She wears a white top that reveals her midriff, a red miniskirt with gold-colored hem featuring a belt, and a matching bolero. Brown boots and gloves adorn her hands and feet, along with bandages wrapping her ankles and lower calves. Attached to her belt is a violet scabbard for her dagger, printed a Venus-like symbol. Around her neck sits a chain of purple beads, believed to be either a Zeal Pendant or the Astral Amulet. On her cheeks and forearms are white markings like war paint.

During her medical stay in Guldove due to the Hydra Poison, her clothes are seen hanging at her bedside until she is cured by a Hydra Humour (either Serge or Norris, if Serge decided not to help her). She wears a white, long sleeved medical gown that features two red stripes at the base of the skirt, with no shoes or socks. Kid's hair is worn loosely instead of in her usual braid.

Kid is Schala's daughter-clone sent into modern time. She was born in the year 1004 A.D. when Schala, bound to the Time Devourer, feared her mind would become increasingly consumed by hatred. She gave the baby her pendant and sent her to the modern world where she was found by Lucca and subsequently adopted. Lucca soon established an orphanage and brought in other children while continuing her scientific research: attempting to perfect the construction of Time Eggs. She gave a Time Egg prototype to Kid and provided her with an Astral Amulet, and a magical wooden pendant inside a purple pouch bearing the crest of Zeal. Lucca somehow discovered Kid's heritage as Schala's daughter-clone and composed a letter for her to read in the future when she was mature enough to realize it herself. Kid developed a playful pirate accent while in Lucca's care despite her efforts to make her a proper lady. Tragedy befell the girl when, around the year of 1015 A.D., Lynx and Harle sacked the orphanage and burned it to the ground. Kid managed to survive but was scarred by the event and swore to get revenge on Lynx. She took up thievery, developing a nasty reputation and inspiring the urban legend of the Radical Dreamers: a fierce group of raiders.

Sometime after the year of 1015 A.D. she was contacted by Belthasar and given instructions to go back in time to 1010 A.D. to save a young boy from drowning. Kid accomplished the feat of going to Opassa Beach and travelling back through history. Her act of time travel caused the Home World dimension to emerge and split off, forming differently to Another World, creating divergent histories. Kid's history was slightly altered so that she met Serge after he crossed the dimensions days before she was given the instructions to time travel. She caught wind of the order given to the Acacia Dragoons by Lynx to apprehend a "ghost boy" at Cape Howl whereupon she battled Karsh with Serge. Kid accompanied Serge to Termina, where the two decided their best course of action would be to infiltrate Viper Manor. This plan went awry during a confrontation on the overlook and Kid took Riddel hostage to avoid capture. However, Lynx was able to poison Kid with Hydra poison in the ensuing chaos resulting in Kid falling off the balcony with the others miraculously landing safely in the Viper Manor Bluffs. The party retreated to Guldove, where the full effect of the poison activated in Kid's body. Kid was bedridden and gave Serge her Astral Amulet for safekeeping.

Depending on events:

  1. Serge found the Hydra Humour and gave it to her,
  2. or Norris administered some while passing through.

Whatever the case, the party sojourned to Fort Dragonia to confront the Dragoons. Lynx initiated the ceremony to switch bodies with Serge and after the transformation was complete, Lynx, now with Serge's body, stabbed Kid with her own dagger which mortally wounded her. Lynx(in Serge's body) did not kill her, instead opting to use mind control to pit Kid against her former friends. The two attacked Hermit's Hideaway after Riddel's rescue from Porre which was thwarted by Fargo. Lynx and Kid then entered Chronopolis and waited for Serge to arrive. While Serge made his way through the time fortress, Lynx put Kid to sleep in preparation for the battle with Serge. After his defeat Kid awoke and was stupefied to find the Frozen Flame hovering above her. Harle cautioned her not to touch it, as she could potentially cause great destruction. Kid did experience a moment of startling lucidity at this point, relating a brief history of Chronopolis. She then collapsed while the Frozen Flame was stolen by the Dragon God. Her mind regressed to the painful memories incurred by the orphanage fire and she was taken to Hermit's Hideaway in Another World. While Serge examined her, Masa, Mune, and Doreen recognized her as being a derivative of Schala, and used their power to send Serge back in time. There, Serge saved many children and comforted Kid resulting in her emerging from her coma in 1020 A.D.

Kid noted that she was physically fine due to the effects of Schala's pendant, which "rewinds" her personal time when she is in danger. Luccia then told Kid that she had a letter from Lucca waiting for her at her lab in Viper Manor. Kid read it, nearly tearing up and asked the others to leave the room while she contemplated Lucca's fate. She then rejoins the party, taking a brief time out to talk to Nikki about the Magical Dreamers whose name had been given to him by Lucca. After Serge and party's assault on Terra Tower, she spoke with the Ghost Children of Opassa Beach. There, her full history was revealed by the ghost of Lucca and Kid rejected her status of being Schala's daughter-clone, declaring that she was her own person. She then championed Serge to go to the Darkness Beyond Time and free Schala.

After defeating the Time Devourer, Kid has no in-game dialogue, except in the event of the true ending.

"If the world's gonna be destroyed, then let it be destroyed! If history is gonna be changed, then let it bloody well be changed! I'll show you what Radical Dreamers really dream about!"
— Kid



The first opportunity to recruit Kid is after the battle with Karsh, Solt, and Peppor. If you agree to let her join your party, however if you disagree, then the next time you will see Kid is when you first visit Termina. Once you talk to the statue polisher, Kid will want to go to Viper Manor with you and she will join your party. Without Leena, Kid will automatically join your party once you meet her.

SPOILER WARNING: Plot and/or ending details follow. Continue at your own risk.

Kid leaves your party when she is poisoned by Lynx, but then joins your party after she is cured (despite either helping or ignoring her).

Kid is permanently out of your party once Serge turns into Lynx. Once Serge is himself again, he enters Kid's past to save her from Lynx and Harle's destruction of the Radical Dreamers Headquarters. When Kid wakes up from her coma, she gladly joins your party one final time.

  • Although not directly stated, it is heavily implied that with Schala finally being free, she and Kid are able to merge back into a single person once again. This first becomes apparent when Schala suddenly starts alternating between Kid's and her own manner of speaking, where she promises Serge that she will find him again no matter what. The signature at the end of an entry in her diary recalling her adventure reads Schala "Kid" Zeal, indicating that both of them have embraced the other's identity. Her appearance remains the same after they merge although she takes on a more feminine appearance. During the end credits sequence, she is shown wandering around the modern world searching for "Serge", followed by an image of her standing on a beach with a red bow in her hair. On her desk, she keeps what appears to be a wedding photo where she is seen with a man whose face is hidden.
