Chrom and Phossa were the leaders of the Biotope Company, working there alongside Dr. Zed. They also had a son, who they named Al.

At some point, they discovered the location of the Great Tree in the Forest of Okoya, which they and Zed hoped to use for their research. However, as they learned that a troop of Zarude lived at the Great Tree and considered it sacred, they decided to keep its location a secret and instead solve its mysteries in a more respectful manner. Dr. Zed was enraged by this decision and pursued them, ultimately running their car off the road. Before Zed could reach them, they sent Al down a nearby river in a cradle to protect him. Ultimately, Dr. Zed stole their research on the Great Tree and left Chrom and Phossa to perish when their wrecked car exploded.

Their last act to protect Al ensured his survival. He was found and raised by one of the Zarude, who gave him the name Koko.
