Shaker Brothers are Solt and Peppor (シュガール & ソルトン , Sugarl and Solton?). These brothers tend to serve as "Tutorials" on new concepts during Chrono Cross except in the final confrontation with them. Throughout the rest of the game, they unknowingly give advice on how to work element traps and the like.
Solt[edit | edit source]
- See also Solt (Enemy)
Solt (ソルトン Solton?) is a tall, lanky, middle-aged Acacia Dragoon that tends to be an absent-minded klutz. Despite this, he is knowledgeable on elements and their many uses and is more powerful with elements than physical attacks. His weapon is a long lance that is strangely as tall as himself. His physical attacks do not tend to cause much damage, but he generally uses a long string of them when attacking.
Peppor[edit | edit source]

Peppor (シュガール Sugarl?) is a short, stubby, middle-aged Acacian Dragoon that is overly aggressive to the point that he will even attack Solt for an entire variety of reasons. During at least one of the battles against these brothers, Solt forgets to set a trap correctly and Peppor decides to promptly attack him for his mistake. Peppor uses an axe that is roughly the size of his torso and tends to be weaker with elements, but his tech skills tend to be hard-hitting. Unlike Solt, Peppor's physical attacks tend to only land 2-3 times, but cause much more damage than his brother's.
Name Origin[edit | edit source]
Solt and Peppor are puns of the common tabletop spices, "salt" and "pepper". Shaker in their united title is an allusion to the type of container salt and pepper are often found in. The Japanese name of Peppor is シュガール shugāru "Sugarl", which comes from sugar. He was likely named this in reference to his rotund frame.
