Larana Chroma is the former princess, now queen by usurpation of the Arguron kingdom located under Paris. Her father is the as-yet unnamed King of the Silverlands, and she is introduced participating with Boris and Jenka in his kidnapping. She has allied with the The Incorruptible Republic of the Immortal Library of the Grand Architect in an attempt to free her people from The Other.

Following the interference of Jiminez Hoffmann in the war between the Argurons and the Talpini, she was betrothed to a prince of the Talpini Moligarchy. She hoped to use that alliance to save her people, since the Talpini have not yet fallen to the hands of The Other.

She is a student at the same university as Jiminez Hoffmann, and had an ill-concealed crush on him.[1] She later finds out that he is the Moligarchy prince she is supposed to marry, while Jiminez later realises he has fallen in love with Larana.

She appears to be an expert or at least an enthusiast when it comes to the use of explosives; she seals the passage behind the group that kidnaps her father, and later demolishes an ancient clank after it sprays Jiminez in the face with acid.

The latter incident occurs when she accompanies Agatha and Co. into the former Corbettite vaults in the Library. She has some hidden objective in regards to this trip, shared with Jiminez's brother Aldin. Their conniving led Jiminez to believe that Larana was in love with Aldin and vice versa.

Upon their return to the Immortal Library, it is revealed that her father had "conquered" the Library . After a momentary detainment, capture, and garbing in nearly nothing by her father's henchmen, Princess Larana declared her intent to usurp her father, her love for Jim Hoffman, and that the Library's neutrality must be kept sacrosanct. The Library's returning secondary expedition endorses her usurpation at gunpoint to the King's Other-allied entourage.

  1. Hoffman, however, was oblivious to how Larana feels about him and had his own ill-concealed crush on Colette Voltaire. Both of them were so tongue tied and ill at ease in the presence of their beloved that they are practically paralyzed. Zeetha notes that the problem can't be universal to Parisians.
