Lore[edit | edit source]
One clock within Chrona's temple is more embellished and elaborate than all the rest. That particular instrument continues its functioning for time immemorial. It must, for the consequences of its stopping would be apocalyptic. Without the mechanism keeping the time goddess in motion, time itself would stand still. It is clear, then, that none other than Chrona herself should have the power to stop it.

Name origin[edit | edit source]
Chrona comes from the Ancient Greek word Χρόνος (Chronos, also transliterated as Khronos or Latinized as Chronus) that means "time". As for example Chronometer is the meter of time.
Chronos is the personification of Time in pre-Socratic philosophy and later literature. Chronos was imagined as a god, serpentine shape in form, with three heads—those of a man, a bull, and a lion. He and his consort, serpentine Ananke (Inevitability), circled the primal world egg in their coils and split it apart to form the ordered universe of earth, sea and sky. In the Orphic cosmogony, the unaging Chronos produced Aether and Chaos, and made a silvery egg in the divine Aether. It produced the hermaphroditic god Phanes, who gave birth to the first generation of gods and is the ultimate creator of the cosmos.
