Chrysta is feisty, judgmental, dismissive, a bit rude and cocky. She judges people based on appearances or on what she heard about them.
When Chrysta sees that she was wrong about Sofia, she is helpful, patient and more encouraging. Although she has improved her relationship with her student, Chrysta still displayed some arrogance, especially in reminding Sofia of who was the trainer (Chrysta) and who was the trainee (Sofia), and initially dismissed Sofia's ideas and her suggestions they ask her friends, Princess Jun, Prince Jin, and Kai, for help until circumstances showed her that asking for help isn't a bad thing and helped her learn the importance of teamwork and some humility that even her student could have good ideas; she just had to listen.
She has long brown hair, tan skin and gold eyes. She wears a mahogany dress with some blue on the top, a brown belt and a striped skirt. As well as tights and shoes. Her wings are blue.
Role in the Series
In "The Mystic Isles: The Princess and the Protector", Chrysta was chosen by both Vega and Orion to train Princess Sofia in becoming a Protector, because she is the best Protector, though some of the other Protectors were worried because she had never trained anyone. Upon seeing who she was to train, Chrysta was judgmental and dismissive of Sofia, due to her judgmental beliefs about non-magical creatures and princesses in general.
Chrysta meets up with Sofia by using her Enchantlet to remove the coachman and steal the royal carriage. She is not impressed by Sofia's outfit, even after Sofia explains she doesn't wear something as fancy as this very often. After informing Sofia she only has to sunset to get her own Enchantlet in order to become a Protector, she flies off before coming back and saying in a dismissive manner that she forgot Sofia couldn't fly and summons her a unicorn.
When they reach the Isle of Forever Frost, she tells Sofia that Orion trained her himself and she uses her own skills to be a Protector and doesn't cheat with a magical amulet. After showing her what the Enchantlet does, she gets on with the first lesson, feather walking. She is not helpful at all to Sofia, she doesn't explain and barely shows the princess how to master the technique. Instead of being encouraging, she becomes rude and cocky, expecting Sofia to fail.
On their way to the second lesson, Chrysta contacts the other Protectors, claiming she doesn't see how Sofia can become a Protector. The others tell her to be encouraging and help her when she needs it. Again, the second lesson doesn't go well when Chrysta removes the calm collar on a beast and then expects Sofia to get it back on without being taught anything. When Sofia starts to succeed using the light from her amulet like a cat toy, she rushes in and messes up Sofia's attempt, believing that Sofia had no control over the situation.
Once they reach the mountain, Chrysta is once more rude, dismissive and unhelpful, barely explaining the task and giving the barest of warnings about the Articcondors guarding the Cave of Enchantlets. When Sofia fails her first time up the mountain, Chrysta gives her lackluster praise for trying but believes she should give up. The Protector is astonished when Sofia remarks that Chrysta had expected her to fail and never gave her the right training. While she acknowledges the fact that Orion was a better teacher, she still doesn't fully believe in Sofia.
Later, when Sofia saves her life from the beast from earlier, she finally stops being so judgmental and starts helping Sofia by helping her find her Enchantlet. As they are leaving to head for home Chrysta apologizes for her behavior and says she has a lot to learn about being a teacher. Sofia agrees to stay her student, and she mentions they should call Sofia the First, in response Sofia smiles and agrees.
As seen in the episode "The Mystic Isles: The Mare of the Mist", Chrysta still maintains some of her attitude being very blunt to Minimus and insisting Sofia chose Skye as her Protector Steed. She is not bothered by Sofia's struggle with picking between an old friend and new one, merely stating that Protectors need to make tough choices in an instant. She was also insistent on Sofia choosing one.
After Sofia secures her bowstring for her WhichWay Bow, Chrysta hints that she put Sofia in a difficult position in order to test her ability to be true to her heart. She doesn't have a problem with Skye and Minimus, as her Protector Steeds in the different realms and they all go home happy.
In the episode "The Mystic Isles: The Falcon's Eye" Chrysta learns a valuable lesson that other people have good ideas and she should listen to them. Also, she doesn't have to do everything by herself and that asking others for help increases the chance of accomplishing the mission.
In the episode, "The Mystic Isles: A Very Mystic Wassalia" Sofia learns that Chrysta loves Wassalia as it's her favorite holiday. When last minute Protector missions come up Chrysta eagerly volunteers like she does every Wassalia assuring Sofia and the rest of the Proctors she has plenty of time to get home to celebrate with her family.
It's not until much later that Sofia learns the truth that Chrysta has been hiding for years. She has no family to spend the holidays with. Because of her pride and not wanting anyone's pity, she never told anyone the truth. After Sofia gathers everyone who Chrysta helped during the day she realizes that family isn't just about blood, but friends who love and value you. She invites them inside for her first ever Wassalia party.
In the episode "The Mystic Isles: Undercover Fairies" while Chrysta's attitude has improved and she's happier, she still feels like an outcast because none of the fairies want a thing to do with her. Chrysta explains that growing up every other fairy was gentle, kind, and dainty and she was more rough and tumble, which is not how a fairy is "suppose to be". In fact she never even earned her fairy wand having failed the first test.
When Snoozle's warns her and Sofia that someone is going to steal the Pixie Cup Flower, she and Sofia go undercover pretending they are taking the test, in order to catch the thief. With Sofia's help Chrysta is able to be delicate and gentle like the other fairies, fitting in for the first time, loses her focus on the mission, even taking off her Enchantlet after a makeover.
During the final part of the test, she ends up trapped along with Sofia and the Sugar Plum Fairy, thanks to Bridget's vine trap. After Bridget steals all the fairy magic, Chrysta frees herself and destroys the testing ground in her pursuit. With Sofia's help they capture Bridget. Afterwards the Sugar Plum Fairy awards her with a fairy wand and Chrysta, shows her skills to her new fairy friends, with her Enchantlet.
In the finale Forever Royal just as the royal family is leaving for the children's graduation from Royal Prep, Chrysta and Skye come to Sofia and tell her they need her to come with them as Prisma was spotted on the Isle of Chrystals and every Protector has been summoned there to find her. On the way, Sofia tells Chrysta that she has a feeling this could all be a trick, and after laying out all the reasons why, Chrysta realizes that Sofia might be right and decides that they should check out her hunch. Upon arriving at the Protector's quarters, they discover it was a trick after all and Prisma has broken into the fault where the Wicked Nine are locked up. Chrysta quickly calls Orion and Vega and tells them what's happened then she and Sofia combine their Enchantlets to create a powerful wind whip to stop Prisma before she can complete the spell. After she has been stopped, Chrysta takes the Necessi-Key back from Prisma and returns it to Sofia. However, it is soon revealed that Prisma did complete the spell and the spirit of the wicked sorceress Vor has been freed from the locket. Vor casts a spell on Chrysta to make her call Sofia and ask her to come to the Mystic Isles then imprisons her and the other Protectors in a chamber. Luckily they are able to stop Sofia before she can fall into the trap. Chrysta tells Sofia what's going on and she and the others urge her to stop Vor. Later, when Vor has been trapped in Sofia's amulet, all her evil spells are broken, including the spell keeping the Protectors and Skye trapped. They all rush to the castle and join together with Sofia's family and friends to help Cedric cast a spell that frees Sofia and Prisma from the amulet. After Prisma surrenders, the Protectors dub Sofia the Protector of the Ever Realm and Chryta congratulates her for archiving her goal. Sofia tells Chrysta that she never could have done it without her. Everyone then heads into the castle for the graduation party.
