Crona Snell is a character that serves as main protagonist in Broken Bird and Man Whom Only Learn Hate and Desolation of the Abomination. She was an explorer whom happened to be a human-turned vampire, Broken Bird's very first and best friend, and the witness of her worst ordeal at hands of Scarred Man in Backwater Village. She later learned the truth about reasons why Scarred Man made her suffer, which is a rage-fueled vengeance against magus race for the torture he suffered.
She later appeared in The Steampunk Adventures of Sorcerer's Apprentices as the supporting protagonists, and Raido's new ally whom made her debut in The New Apprentice Part 1.
Personality and Traits
Crona started out as a shy and quiet girl but was immediately liked by everybody. But behind her fun-loving personality, she actually feels insecure, as her untimely transformation into vampire forced her to become a bloodthirsty killer whether she like it or not to survive. Her trauma over her unnatural change into a monster is something that Broken Bird aka. Tlob can relate. Crona hated those whom mistreated the other just because of their differences, as differences of other beings should not be the reason of what separate an individual from others, but rather as something that draw them together.
Crona's personality is explored further in main series.
As seen in her first interaction with Raido, she doesn't like being stalked and is distraught that because of her poor judgement on him, she ended up became a sorcerer by accident. Although, she later easily overcame it as she had her own fault that led it happened.
In the series, Crona had a pretty but sickly-looking face due to her droopy, half lidded blue eyes that seem to make her look bored or falling asleep half the time, sallow complexion, and braided silver hair where her hair covered her left eye. The said braid was swept over her left shoulder, tied with a hair band. She also slighty taller than Tlob, but still shorter than Janey.
Crona's casual outfit consist of a grey newspaper boy cap, white shirt, blue coat, dark grey schoolgirl skirt with matching shorts beneath, black tights, and grey pointy shoes. Being a vampire, she also had sharp fangs, and combined with her pale complexion, she gives an eerie aura.
Powers and Abilities

Though her vampirism later cured by Polidori, Crona still retained her vampiric powers but lost her vampiric weaknesses due to her treatment was done past her first night of vampirism(Crona spent 8 years of her lifetime as vampire and is mutated as result), and thus turned into Cruor.
