Chrom's parts will hybrid easily onto other Soom Super Gem bodies. The resin will match Soom's Normal Skin or NS color, though aging and neglected care may cause the resin to yellow, making the match a little off. More research is required to see what other dolls he will blend with. DoA Soom Hybrid discussion thread can be found [here].
Chrom's parts were also available in Soom's Free Choice event in October 2011 in either normal skin or Bronze.
Chrom's Story Line
As with all of Soom's monthly dolls, Chrom fits into an intricate storyline based around a pantheon of gods for the 2nd Land. Of the six elements, Chrom's attribute is Ur, or fire. He is a species of his own, being a fire lord. His birth place is Urlatta, which Soom describes as a plateau of larva. Chrom specializes in flame ruin, and his favorite thing is moonshine.
Chrom is the god of War. He takes the shape of a human blended with a wolf. He has the strongest destructive power of all six gods of his land. He is a very handsome young man. However, though he may be good-looking, Chrom is wicked, and his mood can be very capricious. Due to this nature, he does not like to stay in one place, so he travels freely from one land to another. He outwits all those who he comes across with his great cunning, always deceiving others. Chrom continuously puts all of the other gods into danger, but he always manages to get them out of trouble with his great abilities. He is the ruler of Urlatta, the plateau of larva. With him live dwarves, whose metal crafts are excellent and unmatched. These dwarves serve Chrom and consider him to be their highest god because his fire is the most necessary element in their lives.
Chrom has had some interesting involvement with the other gods of the 2nd and 4th lands. He had a hand in letting Hati and Skoll be born with the class of the fire kind. The fire lord was also involved in a misunderstanding with Cuprit, which ultimately ended in a war between the gods. Galena planted a seed of distrust in Chrom's head about a false plot by Cuprit, who supposedly was going to send death upon Urlatta. Infuriated by this, he burned the darkness goddess' forest of ice, thus causing war. However, Chrom eventually caught onto Galena's lie. He realized the misunderstanding, and decided that Galena needed to be taught a lesson. The cunning god of fire laid a trap for Chalco, Galena's husband, and locked him into a labyrinth.
