Zippa (ザッパのかみさん zappa no kami-san?, "Zappa's Wife") is the faithful wife of Zappa in Chrono Cross. She helps him officiate his Smithy by handling customers, accepting orders, and performing other clerical duties. The details of her early life unknown, she probably met Zappa on Zenan mainland and fell in love. The two subsequently searched for the Rainbow Shell before settling down in El Nido to raise Karsh and operate a smithy. Zippa, like her husband, retained an iron and practical spirit in both dimensions, even when Karsh failed to come back from the Dead Sea in Home World. In Another World, she noted to Karsh upon a visit that she had safely stored away his coloring books.
Name Origin[edit | edit source]
