Chrome Artiste is a succubus necromancer in Monster Girl Quest, first encountered in the Haunted Manor. She is a descendant of the Artiste family, who used their talents in necromancy to entertain the Monster Lords until they were disgraced by Chrome's older sister La Croix.
Chrome has an obsession with zombies and tries to create the perfect one; she even believes that Frederika, her ultimate creation, holds room for improvement. This stems from her desire to restore the honour and prestige of her family. Her devotion to necromancy is such that she has very little sexual skill despite being a necromancer. However, she takes a rough approach to her research which causes her to continue creating failures. She is very sadistic and impatient, wanting her prey to cum quickly in order to use semen for experiments or to refuel her energy. She keeps her catch as guinea pigs and has no care for them, only seeing them as tools to be used.
In the past, Chrome and her sister Shirome lived and researched together. However, one day Chrome was careless with an experiment. Shirome had recently bought a drug which was identical to the chemical that Chrome needed to use, but if Chrome used it in her experiment it would cause a massive explosion. Chrome didn't pay attention to Shirome's warning and accidentally used the wrong drug. Shirome covered Chrome's body and managed to protect her from the worst of it, but had her own body blown in half in the process. This forced Shirome to use her necromancy to resurrect herself as a zombie. Shirome became obsessed with trying to truly return to life, which led her to kill countless people and eventually put them on show before the Monster Lord Alice XV. This incident resulted in the Artiste name being disgraced.
Luka, who is investigating the series of rumors about the Haunted Manor, puts an end to Chrome's necromancy experiments and defeats Frederika and Chrome. She initially flees, but encounters a terrified Alice (who has a fear of ghosts) and informs her that Chrome was behind everything; in a fit of rage, Alice sets a coffin that Chrome was hiding in ablaze, forcing her to come out, and then bitch-slaps her for scaring her. Luka then had Chrome apologize and promise to never perform necromancy again.
Shortly after leaving, Luka encounters a strange female scientist who is a bit surprised that Luka chased off Chrome, but leaves shortly afterward.
After Goddess Ilias declares war on the entire monster race, Chrome has researched ghosts instead of zombies and has two ghost companions, Spi and Rit, accompanying her. She is seen killing Experimental Organism X-7 before Luka arrives. Once he arrives, he and Alice become separated. Once he catches up, Chrome's ghosts are seen chasing Alice.
Once Luka defeats Chrome again, her ghost companions vanish. She says that she kept her promise by not defiling any more graves and researched spirits which have nothing to do with necromancy. She reveals to have no connection to Promestein (the strange female scientist), despite receiving equipment from her, explaining that they planned to meet the day Luka initially oust her. Chrome also explains her motives of attempting to restore her family's honor because they once served the Monster Lords for humor until Alice XV (Fifteenth) banned it. Luka points out that Alice is actually the current Monster Lord; upon this realization, Chrome panics, but isn't spared any mercy and Chrome is banned from the Monster Lord’s Castle for 300 years. Alice then notes that Chrome is of the Artiste family and explains that her older sister became insane and mad and Alice XV tried to prevent that, but her actions may have caused her to fall deeper into insanity. Just then, La Croix, revealing herself to be Shirome Artiste and Chrome's elder sister, shows up, much to the three’s surprise, and chastises her younger sister for her repeated failed experiments. She then summons her masterpiece, Cirque du Croix, not only to show off but to prove her superiority of necromancy, then leaves shortly. After leaving, Chrome laments that previously she messed up an experiment they were doing, possibly resulting La Croix's insanity. Luka and Alice set out to continue repelling the invading forces, leaving Chrome alone.
Chrome, Spi, and Rit later assists Luka and Alice by breaking La Croix's barrier around the Biolabs in the Forest of Spirits, in exchange for taking her to her sister. Chrome says she will try to talk down her sister, but if that fails, she is sufficiently prepared to deal with the traitor in her family. She also unveils an upgraded Frederika who takes down Experimental Organism AD-5; Luka questions Chrome for breaking her promise, though she explains that before the war Frederika warned Chrome about the upcoming threat and requested her to use Frederika's body for the fight and greatly enhanced her as she no longer resists the augmentation. The group presses on, but are separated when Alice falls for an "obvious" booby trap. By the time they reunite, Luka defeats half of La Croix's creations and battles the mastermind herself while Chrome's creations fight off the remaining members of Cirque du Croix: Fernandez, Mermaid Pirate Queen Rosa, and Queen Lamia; Chrome's creations easily overpower their opposition and puts them under her control, much to La Croix's surprise. Once La Croix is defeated, she is shown to be a zombie and explains her past. Chrome then puts her elder sister to rest, and as thanks for her assistance, Alice lifts her ban from the Monster Lord's Castle. However, Alice does not lift the ban from necromancy and ghost research, but suggests Chrome revive the Artiste's lost arts of dollmaking, motivating her to do so.
Once Ilias launches her second wave of attackers, Chrome assists San Ilia using her creations as well as borrowing her sister's remaining Cirque du Croix members.
One month after Luka defeats Ilias, Chrome can be found in San Ilia's church making a list of all those interred at the Haunted Manor, and mentions that she has put Frederika, Spi, and Rit to rest. She then says she intends to become a dollmaker as suggested, noting that Alice is scared of ghosts, which she continues to deny.
“A monster with top-notch necromantic abilities. Chrome is a type of succubus, but her powers of seduction aren’t too high. She’s obsessed with satisfying her curiosity and is going to extreme lengths to create the perfect zombie. Chrome believes that Frederika, her ultimate creation, still holds room for improvement. Though her powers of seduction as a succubus aren’t very high, her ability to summon zombies is very dangerous. Even a skilled adventurer can quickly be overwhelmed by the zombies she summons.
Up until now, her crimes were limited to grave robbing. Recently, she’s taken a great interest in genital experiments between living humans and her zombies. If not rooted out by Alice and Luka, she may have gone on to even more inhuman experiments. However, after being terrified by Alice’s assault, she regretfully discontinued her zombies experiments. She returned to her residence and is now researching ghost monsters...”
“The young looking Monster who uses the Haunted Mansion as her research site. At one time she was researching zombie technology, she has switched over to ghost research. Her necromantic abilities stem from being a part of the Artiste family. She has been researching her necromantic abilities in order to bring honor and prestige back to her disgraced family.
Although she has inherited the techniques and knowledge of 2,000 years of her Artiste family history, she continues creating failures due to her inability to fine tune the finer details of her creations and her rough approach to research.
The two ghosts she is now with, Spi and Rit, are human souls able to maintain ghost form due to a new principle. Due to that, they are theoretically more of a ghost than a Monster.”
Thirsting Arms: Normal attack.
Thirsting Mouth: Normal attack.
I’ll Give An Injection!: Triggers paralysis status.
*Restraint of the Dead: Triggers bind status.
I’ll Give A Handjob!: Binded attack.
I’ll Give A Blowjob!: Binded attack.
I’ll Rape You!: On the first turn, this is a preparation attack. On the second turn, it will lead to a one hit KO via instant follow-up.
Ghost Handjob: Normal attack that damages twice.
Ghost Blowjob: Normal attack that damages twice.
Ghost Tit Fuck: Normal attack that damages twice.
*Ghost Restraint: Triggers bind status.
*I’ll Give An Injection!: Triggers paralysis status.
I’ll Give A Handjob!: Binded attack that damages twice.
I’ll Give a Blowjob!: Binded attack that damages twice.
Phantasmagoria: Triggers bind status and immediately leads to a one hit KO via instant follow-up.
Her HP is rather low compared to her Zombies, but she can deal high damage. Since her HP is low, Luka needs to defeat her quickly; being too defensive might lead to defeat. Use Demon Skull Beheading along with normal attacks to build up SP.
She can restrain Luka and use personal pleasure attacks, which requires Struggling to break free. When she uses I’ll Rape You!, she will prepare a vaginal intercourse which requires an attack to break free.
Another gimmick is her I’ll Give An Injection! which causes paralysis.
If Luka loses, she mounts him and rides him cowgirl-style during vaginal penetration. He’ll then be toyed with as a guinea pig for the remainder of his life.
Alice is rendered unconscious due to the ghosts, so there is no help from her. This battle is a little more difficult as Chrome or her ghosts can attack twice per turn. Like the previous battle, she can use I’ll Give An Injection! to paralyze Luka and can also use Ghost Restraint to bind Luka. Finally, she can also use Phantasmagoria at random which is a one hit KO via instant follow-up, so Serene Mind is an obvious necessity.
If Luka loses, Spi and Rit force Luka to ejaculate on Chrome's ass, then offers vaginal or anal sex. He is then made into a guinea pig for the rest of his life, like before.
“Violated by a necromancer... I'm too disgusted to even try to say something witty. Though Chrome has low HP, she is quite powerful. She also wields some troubling techniques... Even the names of them are pretty embarrassing... If she gives you an injection, you will take major damage and become paralyzed. In addition, she can still bind you while you're paralyzed. When you're about to be violated, you have to Attack to get her off. Since her HP is low, you need to defeat her quickly. Being too defensive will lead to defeat... Now go, oh brave Luka. Slam your iron hammer of justice on that evil scientist.”
“A victim to the Necromancer again… You really love zombies and ghosts, don’t you? I’m pretty sure that they are your best friends at this point. And friendship is a beautiful thing… Since they are monsters, your serene state of mind is most effective. You can also avoid their instant kill attack with it. Her troublesome skill is her injection… Not only is it damaging, but the name is pretty embarrassing. Fallen angel dance will let you avoid it completely… But since the instant kill attack is more troublesome, you should keep serene state up. So just accept that you’ll have to take that attack. In preparation, keep your HP up and your SP ready to heal after. Lastly, if you lose while being raped by the ghosts, there’s an additional insulting scene. I’ll just make another Luka, so go ahead and do whatever. I don’t care. Now go, oh brave Luka. If you lose again this time, I’ll give you an injection.”
- Despite her young appearance, Alice mentions that Chrome is a hundred years older than her. This is further delved into in Chapter 3 when it is revealed Chrome and her family used to serve the Monster Lords.
- Combining the names of her ghost companions, Spi and Rit, forms "Spirit".
- Chrome possibly references Scooby-Doo upon meeting her at the Haunted Mansion in Chapter 3, calling Alice and Luka "meddling kids" which is what the antagonists frequently use to describe the protagonists after being foiled in the series. However, this may just be due to the age difference between Chrome and Alice/Luka.
- Torotoro mentioned her bad hygiene habits on a Q&A, this is further referenced in Monster Girl Quest: Paradox.
- According to Torotoro's blog, the Artiste's family Ressurection skill can increase a subject's physical abilities to 130%~150% but in exchange for the reduction of it's magical ones.
