Pierre (Chrono Cross) (ピエール "Piēru"?) is a graceful knight-in-training who aims to become a noble and courageous hero in Chrono Cross. Pierre speaks with an inter-language called Franglais, which is a blend of English and French, similar to Harle. In his vocabulary of French words, he most often uses the words Moi and Iui instead of their English alternatives.

"I understand now! A true hero knows fear... And yet while knowing fear, he still has the courage to put up a fight! If Moi lack the caliber to be called such then Moi will just have to work harder!"
— Pierre

Profile[]

Appearance[]

Pierre is of a very thin build (also indicated by his "weakling" in-game description) and he has shiny, blonde hair worn in a bob style that somewhat covers his blue eyes. Atop his head is an elaborate dark blue sunhat with a coiled light blue fabric around the crown of the hat, adorned with an enormous chromatic feather-like piece. On his body he wears a dark blue tunic with a huge collar that has lace details at the edges, on top of this, he wears a golden breast plate, heavy armor on hours arms and shoulders and gold gloves, with a fanciful red scarf with gold fringe draped diagonally across his chest, cinched at his left waist with a gold closure. Pierre wears atrociously vibrant purple leggings, with long gold boots that have thick spinach-green padding, and a pleated dark-brown skirt that is mostly covered by the ends of the dark blue dress shirt with gold hem.

Personality[]


Story[]

While his origins remain unclear, at some point during his lifetime he decided to become a hero. Pierre drew inspiration from heroic appearances and pampered his own looks with the finest of care. Though he appeared dashing and romantic as a result, he still lacked the hardened mettle and battle experience of a true warrior. This did not stop him from acquiring the legendary Hero's Medal and seeking to enlist in whatever cause was worthy of his benevolent assistance. This errant way of life brought him to El Nido, where he flippantly fancied himself as the perfect heir to the vacant position of fourth Deva in the Acacia Dragoons. He rented out Karsh's former room in Termina, and worked on his charm and handsome image in preparation to enter Viper Manor. While preparing, he lost the Hero's Medal but met Serge soon after, who retrieved the medal for him from John. Pierre noted that Serge would do well for his image by serving as thorns to his illustrious rose and he joined the party to attempt to enter Viper Manor through the front gate. He succeeded in battling his way through and raided the manor with the others. While on the mission, he acquired the Hero's Shield from the treasure room.

He continued to accompany Serge after that night, though the events of Fort Dragonia drove him back to Termina. He waited there until Serge returned from the Dead Sea, bringing with him the Prop Sword, which immediately bedazzled Pierre. About this time, Pierre experienced a revelation concerning the true nature of a hero — that it did not lay in something like appearance or genealogical dignity, but in hard work, courage, and tenacity. He began training like John by running laps to improve his form and embraced the Prop Sword as his destined blade. The blade shone brightly in response and imparted to him the SlapOfCyrus, his ultimate technique that delivered a crushing blow worthy of the former late Guardian knight Cyrus. With his new inner strength unlocked and growing, he set out with Serge to prove himself and test his bravery.

After defeating the Time Devourer, Pierre tells Serge to call him when he was in trouble, while proclaiming himself as a "true hero".

Pierre is a central character in one of the endings of Chrono Cross. He accompanies Solt and Peppor through Fort Dragonia to seek their revenge on behalf of General Viper. After making their way through the tower (with Pierre complaining about an upset tummy the entire time) the trio was never seen again.

Trivia[]

  • The name "Pierre" is the French variant of the English name of "Peter".
  • Interestingly, when Pierre joins the party, a caption pops up saying "Pierre joined your partie!", despite this not being the correct use of the French word. In French, partie means "portion", "a part of", or a round in a game. More accurate words to use would be "Groupe" or "équipe". The fact that the phrase is incorrect may be a way to accentuate Pierre's status as a pseudo hero and the artificiality of his own persona. It can also be inferred, that he is saying the word "party" and the writers attempted to make it sound french/have a french accent.
  • Pierre's dialogue also regularly misuses the word moi. The correct word in french would be Je, which is "I", or me for "my". This plays into both the interpretations of his generally incorrect french in the game.
  • The name of Pierre's first Tech Skill is a play on the word "meddlesome", which means "interfering" or "nosy" and could be another reference to his personality.
