Nagi (凪, Nagi), now known as Chrome Dokuro (クローム 髑髏, Kurōmu Dokurō), is a 13-year-old Japanese girl who was first introduced as Tsuna's mysterious Mist Guardian and one of Mukuro's subordinates who acted as his vessel and connection to the world outside the Vendicare Prison.
Chrome is a cute and sweet girl, as commented by Mukuro and Julie, which make her earned interest from boys. The notable example of this is when she first transferred to Namimori Middle where some male students in Tsuna's class took an immediate crush upon seeing her.
She is quite small for her age with short, "pineapple" style hair like Mukuro's. She has violet eyes but one was covered by a black eye patch with a chrome-colored skull due to an injury that caused her to loose her right eye. She is mostly seen wearing the green Kokuyo Middle-school uniform like the rest of the Kokuyo Gang; accessorized with her eypatch, a black belt, and black boots, all embelished with a chrome-colored skull, reflecting her name, Chrome Dokuro (Dokuro means "skull" in Japanese). During her daily activities in the future, she sometimes replaced her skull eyepatch with the normal one. Other times, she has been seen wearing the Simon uniform or Namimori uniform. With whatever she wears, she was usually seen with her bag, in which she stores a weapon.
In one of chapter covers, which shows her current self and Nagi, Nagi is shown to wear a sailor uniform, implying that she used to attend public school prior her accident.
When in an illusionay world, she has longer hair with bangs covering her lost right eye and was seen wearing a plain white gown. This is shown to be a similar version of Nagi before the incident minus the hair covering her right eye.
The Future version of her is briefly seen at the end of the Future Arc. From her younger counterpart, Chrome had let her hair grow back longer with her bangs being short but off to the right side; she had gotten rid of her skull eye patch and the "pineapple" hair. It's also shown she has a sense of style wearing a simple shirt, skirt, with a jacket. Contrary to this, in other official artwork, Chrome had her bangs even shorter and still retained a "pineapple" hairstyle with her longer hair look. She also had a different styled eye patch with stars on it.
Due to her once anti-social life as Nagi, she never opened up to anyone except Mukuro, and always gets confused and shy whenever someone is kind to her since she had never imagined that her existence could be accepted by people. Because of her timid nature, she never talks nor fights back if someone badmouths or even hurt her, and merely accepted it calmly. This made some people can't be honest with her or think of her as pitiful. She also lacked confidence and used to tend on Mukuro for help, despite her own desire to become stronger. However, as the story progress, she becomes determined to become independent to help the people who are dear to her with her own power and started to open up with the others.
From what her parents talked about in a flashback, her original name was Nagi, and she lived an isolated and antisocial life. After trying to rescue a cat, she was badly injured in a car accident, which led to the loss of her right eye and some of her internal organs. The only way to save her life would be to have someone with the same blood type transfer their organs to her. She did not care whether she lived or not, and her mother refused to sacrifice her own organs anyway. However, Mukuro Rokudo heard her words and allowed her to live by creating illusionary organs.In Hidden Bullet Novel: mono.Chrome, it was revealed that after recovering the wounds that she received from her accident, she immediately ran away from hospital and went to the neighbor town, Kokuyo as ordered by Mukuro. On her way there, she spotted Ken asleep on the nearby park. Seeing that he looked like he's going to die, she sits his head on her lap to make it comfortable for him to sleep. When he awoke, he was surprised, causing him to shout angrily at her until he feels hungry. Realizing this, she gave him an apple, which reminded Ken of his past when Mukuro also gave him an apple when he and Chikusa are hungry and ran away after eating the apple in tears. Unknowingly to him, she followed him all the way to Kokuyo Land, making Chikusa thought at first that she's an intruder. But when he found out that Ken knew her and eventually her connection with Mukuro, they let her stay in Kokuyo Land with them.
Chrome was chosen to be the holder of the Half Vongola Mist Ring in Mukuro's place. She fought on level footing with Viper during the early stages of her match, but was overwhelmed once Viper got a bit serious. Viper, soon realizing that her trident was the key to her power, began targeting that, and, shortly after, was able to destroy it. This led to an unusual phenomenon where Chrome lost some of her organs, and seemingly lost the match.
However, soon a mist covered her body. Viper guessed that Chrome did what normal female illusionist do by using the last of her powers to cover her body. Viper couldn't be more wrong, because out of the mist came a sinister laugh, and, once the mist cleared, Mukuro had taken over.
Mukuro soon defeated Viper, winning the match, but having used too much of his power, his grip on his real illusion faded, returning the body back to Chrome.
Later, in the Sky Ring Battle, she was captured by Bel and Mammon and held hostage to convince Gokudera and Yamamoto to give up their Rings. Gokudera and Yamamoto attempted to save her but were caught in an illusion; however, Ryohei came to the rescue and broke the illusion.
After being transferred into the Future with a frozen Vongola Ring, Chrome was confronted by Glo Xinia in the Kokuyo Gang's Hideout. With the help of Future Mukuro, she was able to thaw out her Ring and defeat Glo Xinia. Ryohei later brought Chrome to the Vongola Base. As she lay in bed sick, her illusionary internal organs begin to fail and disappear due to Mukuro's defeat by Byakuran. However, she was able to use the Vongola Mist Ring to sustain her organs via her own Illusions. During the Invasion of the Merone Base, she appeared using Illusions to disguise herself with Hibari and Kusakabe. Along with the other Vongola Guardians, Chrome was given a Vongola Box Weapon.
Upon returning to the Future, the other members of the Famiglia were at first worried that Chrome wasn't eating. However, once she established a friendship with I-Pin, she began joining them for dinner. She later began training to master her Illusions with the virtual training challenge created by Mammon and her combat abilities with Bianchi and I-Pin. Chrome was not one of the participants in Choice and therefore watched the battle from the Vongola viewing area.Yuni, Kyoko, Haru and I-Pin, she stated that she no longer wished to fight, leading the other Guardians to think she would be better off staying in the past. It was later revealed that Vongola first Mist Guardian Daemon Spade had taken control of Chrome in order to draw the girls out and hold them as hostages. The group was then trapped in an illusion with limited oxygen, and while the other Guardians attempted a rescue Chrome attempted to break the illusion which, with Viper acting as a guide she was able to accomplish. Later Daemon gave Chrome her inheritance after expressing an interest in Mukuro, who had appeared briefly to save Chrome. Six Funeral Wreaths tried to capture Yuni. Chrome used her Vongola Mist Owl Cambio Forma to see through the enhanced illusions created by Torikabuto, aiding Tsuna in his fight. During the day of the final battle, Chrome delivered the Vongola Mist Box to Mukuro but fainted shortly after seeing him for the first time. After Byakuran was defeated, M.M. warned Chrome that Mukuro was only using her to escape from prison. Before Chrome could respond to this, they were interrupted by Ken, Mukuro, and Chikusa who told her that it's about time to return to the past. As she faced Mukuro, she said that she's also happy to finally able to meet him in person. Once she returned to the past along with the others, she smiled as she looked at her Mist Vongola Box Ring before switched placed with Mukuro.
Back in the past Chrome was stalked by Julie Katou, a transfer from Simon Middle School, who also started delivering food to her. He later asked her to go on a date and run away with him after the inheritance ceremony. However, she softly rejected him and just left him standing there, making Julie commented that she's cute.
Later, after Yamamoto was attacked, Chrome created an illusion of him for Tsuna's Inheritance Ceremony so that the other Mafia members would remain unaware of his absence. Later, she, along with the other guardians (excluding Lambo), was defeated by Enma. When the Simon Famiglia took their leave after Enma defeated Tsuna, she was taken along by Julie, dropping her Vongola Ring on the ground in the process.
After awakening to find herself trapped at Simon Island, Chrome attempted to escape but was stopped by Julie who demonstrated that he was creating her illusionary organs for her as the Island had a barrier that prevents Mukuro's illusions from passing through. When Chrome refused his offer to become his, Julie then explained that he was responsible for the entire battle between the Simon and Vongola for two goals, first for complete annihilation of Vongola and second was her. As he said this, he revealed his true identity as Daemon Spade in disguise. When he requested for Chrome to submit her body by her own will, she refused and Daemon then punished her by proceeding to take control of Chrome's mind in order to draw out Mukuro so he can take his body.
She's seen again alongside Daemon, after he finally revealed his true identity and plans to Tsuna and the others. She creates a mist barrier that traps Tsuna and the others with her technique, Cortina Nebbia, to prevent them fighting Daemon all together at once. When Hibari threatened Daemon by breaking the barrier, he replied to Tsuna and the group that if the barrier is broken; Chrome, the creator, will be killed. When Yamamoto managed to injure Daemon with his new technique, Chrome interfered and refused to step back until Daemon ordered her too. Before she left the battlefield with Daemon, Yamamoto gave her the Ore of Mist Version X and told her that they will always wait for her.
The next day, when the Simon Ring finally fully awakened, she was tied up as Daemon undid the mind control on her and told her that he will let her meet Mukuro. Chrome asked why now, which he replied that it's a perfect time because he can fight Mukuro with the fully awakened Desert Simon Ring. Chrome realized that he was using her as a bait to lure out Mukuro and shouted that she won't let it happen. Daemon replied that no one is there to listen to her opinion, the one who will decide is Mukuro and he opened the barrier of the island. Chrome urgently asked him to stop, but it's already too late and Daemon removed her illusionary organs to lure out Mukuro; as Chrome spit out blood, she silently pleaded Mukuro to not come but soon blacked out. After this, mist surrounded Chrome and Mukuro appeared, replacing her.After the fight of Mukuro and Daemon, Mukuro leaves Chrome to Tsuna and changed back into Chrome. When she woke up she asks where is Mukuro and Tsuna replied that Mukuro had already defeated Daemon, making her glad. However, Chrome and the others were shortly surprised when they heard Mukurou, the box animal, speaking and knew that there was trouble regarding Mukuro's body in Vindice. Julie suddenly woke up and asked about the situation. Tsuna and Gokudera said that Daemon is still alive and is inside Julie which Chrome and Mukuro immediately replied that he is no longer Daemon. Mukuro concluded that Daemon had taken over his body, surprising them. At the confrontation with Daemon, she was saved by Yamamoto from being sent to Daemon's illusionary world. She intended to assist Tsuna and Enma to see through Daemon's illusions but Daemon threatened that he will kill her with Mukuro and Reborn if they were to assist them and told them to watch. However, she finally interferes when Tsuna hesitates to shoot Enma along with Daemon by protecting Enma with her Barrier Mist Flames in full power that were also supported by Mukuro. After Daemon was defeated, she and the others returned to Namimori, with Mukuro freed by the Vindice after acknowledging his effort during the battle with Daemon.
Transfer to Nami-Middle
Tsuna and the others are surprised to see that Chrome has been transferred to Nami Middle. She stood at the front of the classroom to introduce herself, but breaks down crying in Kyoko's arms. When discussing this between classes, Ryohei told them that according to what Kyoko has heard from Chrome, she was kicked out of Kokuyo Gang by Mukuro. When she woke up in the morning, she only found a note that telling her to get out and a Nami-Middle uniform, and Kokuyo Land already empty. Gokudera then commented that since Mukuro was free from jail, he doesn't need Chrome anymore. Tsuna seemed to have doubts about that representation of events. Reborn arrived and told them that he was convened by Mukuro to talk about Chrome. He was given her living expenses by Mukuro as well. Since Chrome has already arrived in Namimori, Reborn said that settling her in to either Kyoko or Haru's house would be for the best until they found a place for her to live. Reborn then suggests a welcoming party for Chrome at Tsuna's house, with the theme of a mimicry contest. At the party, Chrome thanks everyone for throwing it for her with the moral support of Haru and Kyoko and holding a mimicry contest where the loser must become Chrome's errand boy for a year.
1st Day of Representative Battle of the Rainbow
Later on the first day of the Representative Battle of the Rainbow, she was shown to be having a cold. After school, on her way home, she was approached by illusion that Mukuro created to check on whether she was getting better or not. However, seeing her, he states that her condition has worsened as he had thought. Mukuro tells Chrome to tell him everything about her condition; otherwise, she was going to die, much to Chrome's shock. The next day, Tsuna noticed that Chrome was not present at school and wondered did something happened to her.
3rd Day of Representative Battle of the RainbowAfter the second Representative Battle of the Rainbow, when Tsuna, Gokudera, and Yamamoto visited the hospital to check on Team Skull's condition after defeated by Team Bermuda, they bumped into Kyoko, who told them that Chrome's internal organs are gone. Tsuna rushed into the ICU and saw that she was really worn out. Tsuna apologized for not acting upon her absence even though he noticed it, but Chrome ignored his apology and instead requested Tsuna so she could be placed on Team Reborn. Tsuna refused as Reborn is the one who decides on the team and worried about her condition, but Chrome pleads to him; despite that, Tsuna still refuses. Later, however, during the battle between Team Reborn and Team Verde against Team Bermuda, Chrome appeared at the battlefield as Reborn's sixth representative and offered to support Mukuro's illusion, joining the fight. At this moment, the cause behind Chrome's illness is revealed; Chrome was torn between wanting to be seen as a single person as she is no longer sharing a body with Mukuro and rejects his illusion, but some part of her wants Mukuro to keep providing her with illusionary organs, making both her feelings and body grown worse. However, after finally found her resolve to protect people that she loves, Chrome able to recreate illusionary organs with her own power by using Verde's equipment and assisted Mukuro's illusion. By combining both of their illusions, they able to create a much more powerful version of Genju Gagaia, Genju Mugaia.
4th Day of Representative Battle of the Rainbow
Chrome didn't return to Kokuyo Land and met Tsuna and Kyoko during her way to school. After school, she, along with Kyoko, Haru, and I-Pin went to Tsuna's house after fixing the lucky charms for Tsuna, Gokudera, and Yamamoto. They were surprised when seeing large amount of people gathering at Tsuna's house. Bianchi told Kyoko and Haru to leave the house until the meeting is over while Chrome stay to join the meeting and was chosen as one of the representatives who will fight in battle against Team Bermuda.
In the afternoon, after the watch announced the start of the battle, she, along with Gokudera, Yamamoto, and Flan fought against Small Gia and Big Pino, creating illusions with Flan to buy some times until Tsuna, Enma, and Basil arrives after defeating Alejandro. However, Small Gia and Big Pino able to located them and destroyed their illusions, revealing them. Fortunately, before Big Pino's next attack could hit them, Enma used his gravity manipulation to float four of them into the air, saving them. When Tsuna's vision was blinded by one of Small Gia's weapons, Yamamoto and Gokudera immediately interferes and with Enma's help, straining the two Vindice's movements. As they're straining them, Gokudera asked for Chrome's help for their plan. Chrome immediately told Flan to protect them with Verde's device. Flan at first, refused, since he's tired, scared, and annoyed, but, after her firm insistence, he agreed under condition that she'll kiss him on cheek if it goes well. With her aid, Flan created ceramic that covered Gokudera's and Yamamoto's body as the dynamites explode, destroying Small Gia's and Big Pino's wrist watches without harming the two. After recovering from the previous battle, she and the others went to where the remaining team members are. She, Enma, and Flan helped Tsuna from Jager's attack, but quickly defeated in instant, rendering them unconscious. Later, her watch, including the other fallen members' watches, are destroyed by Bermuda to prevent them assisting Tsuna.
After Bermuda was defeated, she, Mukuro, and Flan are submitted into Namimori Hospital along with the Varia, Byakuran, Dino, Basil, and Hibari. She was seen in Mukuro's room along with the other members of Kokuyo Gang who were visiting him when Hibari destroyed the wall that lead to Mukuro's room. In the last chapter, several days after the battle, Chrome is last seen in front of Tsuna's house, waiting for him along with the others, invited by Reborn to celebrate Tsuna's tutelage.
From the flashback, it can be assumed that she's not in a good relationship with both her mother and her step-father. Her mother stated that she couldn't understand her at all, and never wish for her to continue to live longer than she already had, refusing to sacrifise her organs for her despite knowing that she would die, clearly showing that she never cared for her own daughter. Her step-father also sounds annoyed since her accident caused one of his important meeting to be postponed, implying that he cares for his work more than his step-daughter, and doesn't seem to have considered her as such since they are not related by blood. It's never been shown how Chrome feels for them, but she's clearly upset by their treatments.
Mukuro, for his part, is kind towards her, although whether it is honest behavior or just an act is unknown. During his battle with Glo Xinia, he reacts with surprise when Glo Xinia commented on how precious Chrome was to him. After the battle, Mukuro told Tsuna not to drag her out of his reach and even requested that he protect her. However, at the end of the Future Arc, M.M. warned her that Mukuro is a "fearful person" and that he was just using her to get out of Vendicare Prison. Future Mukuro referred to Chrome as an "ignorant little girl" who took his words and actions at face value. His feelings and motives become much more complex and confusing after he is freed out of the Vendice Prison; he kicked Chrome out of the Kokuyo Gang and told Tsuna that he detested the current her. However, despite these statements, Mukuro still visited her to check on her condition. He eventually revealed that he left her because he wanted her to become an independent warrior with the ability to stand up for herself, acknowledging her high potential. Despite his mysterious intentions, Chrome continues to love and have faith in Mukuro. Her feelings towards him are what supporting her to grow stronger for the sake of his and those he held dear. What Mukuro feels for Chrome remains unresolved, but it was strongly hinted that he genuinely cares for her.
M.M. is seen to have a huge dislike towards Chrome and this could be because of her possible feelings towards Mukuro. She seems somewhat jealous of her and has been seen slapping her and insulting her on some occasions. But after the final battle with Byakuran, she told Chrome to stay away from Mukuro since he was a fearsome person, and she was concerned about it. This may mean she has some level of concern for Chrome. Chrome doesn't have any anger nor hatred towards her, but instead views her as one of people whom she held dear.
Regardless of her connection with Mukuro, he sees Chrome as an important friend and always treats her nicely, just like he does to the other Famiglia members. During the Arcobaleno Trials Arc, he even brought her some onigiri since he knew she didn't eat much at the base, which Chrome accepted. When Chrome was kidnapped by Daemon, he resolved to save her no matter what happens, showing how deeply he cares of her well-being. Chrome also sees Tsuna as her boss and likes him since he is the only one who believed and accepted her as his Guardian at the Mist Ring Battle and granted him a kiss, much to his embarrassment and Gokudera's anger.

She also appears as a main character in the Drama CD 'Chrome Saw it! Happy Day at Kokuyo Land' is where she meets Lambo, who sees her learning Italian and tries to teach her. Then, she meets Tsuna and after some events, Lambo spills the bucket of water that Chrome had brought from the bathhouse for Ken onto her. Tsuna offers to let her go to her house to dry her wet Kokuyo uniform and change into dry clothes. While she is changing, Ken and Chikusa suddenly arrive at Tsuna's house and much to Tsuna's protests, Ken keeps banging on the door of the room Chrome is in and tells her to come out. When Ken actually says 'the pineapple head inside', Chrome switches with Mukuro and the latter uses his First Realm on Ken. At the end of the day, Chrome heads back with Ken and Chikusa but not before Tsuna asks why Chrome is with those two. She states that it is because Mukuro told her to and because they were her first comrades that she trusted.
