Krone (クローネ, Kurōne?), also known as Sister Krone (シスタークローネ, Shisutā Kurōne?), was a helper in The Promised Neverland and helped run the Grace Field House orphanage with Isabella. She would eventually attempt to usurp the position of "Mama", an act which would lead to her death at the hands of Isabella, Grandmother and the Demons.
HistoryKrone was born on July 2019, and she being sent in a premium farms a year later in 2020, growing up along with several other children.
During her time in the orphanage - unbeknownst to the horrors of the outside world - Krone and her friends finds ways to contact and learn about the outside world that lies behind the walls of the orphanage. One of Krone's friends showed them a book on how they could do so using a glass bottle to send letters to a random person outside. Her idea was however rejected due to the absence of a water body to do so. Other friends of Krone recommend to use bedpans and balloons, their ideas were also rejected.
Krone in the end thought of using a Chinese sky lantern to send their message outside. She and her friends watched the lantern soar into the sky as her friends praised her and called her "cool". In the end, the lantern fell back down onto a ground somewhere outside the orphanage.
In the year 2031, 12-year-old Krone was sent out of her orphanage and the secrets behind the so-called orphanage were unmasked before her eyes, as she was devastated once she learnt how the orphans who were sent out were killed as food for the Demons. When she was given the choice to choose to be trained as a caretaker for the plantations or be killed immediately, Krone chose the former. Afterwards, Krone was forced to go through extensive training and soon earned a spot as a Sister working in Premium farms. Additionally, Krone had to undergo painful surgery which a microchip was embedded onto her heart – a method the Demons used to electricute and kill the caretakers if they exit the grounds of their assigned farms.
The history of Krone, however, is different in the anime. In the anime, Krone received a doll (which is never shown or mentioned in the manga) at one point during her childhood, and immediately grew fond of it and used it to comfort herself during her training days to become a caretaker.
In the cafeteria of Grace Field House, Isabella introduced Krone and Carol to the orphans, saying how Krone is appointed to be their Sister whilst Carol will be their new foster sibling. Krone warmly greeted the children, as Emma, Norman and Ray stared at her in dismay, unhappy at how there is a new enemy for them to deal with.
Emma, Norman and Ray sneaked behind Isabella as she brought Krone to her room. The two turned around and spot the trio downstairs, as the three reacted nervously with a smile. Some time later, Krone was called to talk to Isabella in her office. The former happily explained how she was excited to serve Isabella as her assistant, adding on how she knew about her status and achievements as a caretaker. Isabella passed a set of documents containing information of the orphans, wanting Krone to remember everything that is written. Isabella revealed how some of the orphans knew about the plantation's secrets, and hence the reason why she called her in. As Krone recommended on shipping the orphans out immediately, Isabella prevented her from doing so, saying how she will deal with them in a "proper" manner, and how Krone's only job is to watch the children and nothing else. Isabella asked whether she understood, Krone responds by saying yes, as she concealed the anger she had within her, which she later lets out back in her room on her toy doll.
Later that day, Krone was entertaining several young orphans in the cafeteria, as she later went up to Norman and Ray, commenting on their full scores they got in their tests, and said how she hoped to know the two of them more in future. When the children are playing tag outside the house, Krone went up to them and wished to join them in the game, as she wanted to be the catcher (In her words, "It"). During the game, Krone went to search for the orphans, as she immediately caught all of them. Krone soon went after Emma, who was hiding with Phil. Krone commented on how she knew about her weakness, as well as Norman and Ray's, and asked whether she had been to the gates and spot her foster sibling's corpse. Krone eventually caught her and Phil, as Emma lost the game. Krone later chased after Norman, thinking how he is easier to catch compared to Ray due to his weak physique. Krone nevertheless was unable to catch him, as Ray informed her on how the time ran out. Krone went back to the group of orphans, staring at Norman, Ray and Emma, as she started to suspect the three as the targets Isabella was talking about.
Krone possessed a large and intimidating physique, which coupled with her equally intimidating facial expressions made her seem dominant, though she outwardly often wore a bright, warm smile. She has short dreadlocks, long bottom eyelashes, plump lips and dark skin and wears standard orphanage uniform made for the plantations' Sisters.
Stitches are located on Krone's chest, which contain a microchip embedded onto the heart by the Demons of the orphanage that 一as explained by Krone一 would electrocute and kill the host if she leaves her assigned area.
Krone was an individual who fought for nothing but her own, personal agenda. She played nice when she had to, scheming and plotting continuously while trusting no one but herself. She fully realized the evil of her own actions, and how the twisted system she was brought up in made her this way, but still carried on nevertheless. Her goal was ultimately just to survive, to be on the "Eat" part of the food chain.
Skills and Abilities
Krone has proven herself to be a very intelligent, logical and intuitive person. She had obtained perfect scores on the daily tests during her time in the orphanage. However, she was still inferior to Isabella and fell short in her attempts to outwit her as she tried to usurp Isabella's position as "Mama" of the orphanage. Nevertheless, she continued her attempts to obtain an advantage so that she can "drag her down" from her position. Krone also uses her intellect as an advantage to catch the children during a Game of Tag, when she laid out baits to lure the children in.
Krone has proven herself to possess incredible speed. During a Game of Tag with the children, Krone effortlessly caught a handful of children in a short amount of time. Krone was able to close great distances between her and the children in a blink of an eye. As people like Ray, Don and Norman described Krone to be impossible to run away from once she found them.
Krone has shown to be really fast, catching all of the orphans quickly in a game of tag.
Isabella is her superior and asked for her to help keep watch over the children of the orphanage. At first, Krone admired and respected Isabella, being delighted at the chance to work by her side. Though as Isabella revealed the present problematic situation, Krone immediately saw it as an opportunity to exploit her for her own promotion, which led to her scheming to usurp the position as "Mama".
Krone told Grandmother about the escape plan but Grandma still had her killed. Grandma said that Isabella is her pawn.
Not much is known about Krone's relationship towards Minerva. The only link between these two is a mysterious pen that she left in the drawer for the orphans; this has been seen to hold the coordinates of Minerva's whereabouts.
He figured out that she plans to get enough information to convince the higher ups in her plan to become a mama. She left a key mold and a pen for Norman to find.
She invites Gilda to talk to her if she has anything to tell her.
- In the anime adaptation, Krone had a doll which she had since young. In the manga, however, the doll was never shown or mentioned.
- Several things about Krone were discussed during an interview with Kaiu Shirai and Posuka Demizu in the special edition of Volume 13:
- Shirai and Demizu explained how they initially thought of the option of having Krone to be white, and how it was a good idea since she would be a tough-looking, muscle-bound young woman who seem like she would speak shady-sounding broken Japanese. Shirai and Demizu in the end went with the idea of making her black, thinking that it is the better option since it will be easier to identify her and have readers to distinguish her from Isabella at a glance.
- The two also stated how they initially thought of having Krone to still be alive, and would become a Mom in one of the premium farms and have Gilda to be the Sister when Emma returned back after the escape.
- Her name "Krone" is the German word for "crown", which fits with her desire to usurp Isabella's position as a Mama.
- According to Posuka, she considered Krone to be one of her favorite characters to draw.
