Chroe Mashima (馬縞 クロエ, Mashima Kuroe) is one of the supporting characters of the Murenase! Seton Gakuen series.
Chroe is a young girl with white and black hair with pink ribbon and long ponytail. She has two zebra ears on top of her head and yellow and green eyes. She is usually in a school uniform and wears a long stripped socks. She has a zebra tail that's only fluffy at the end, but usually kept it hidden until Jin revealed it to the school.
Chroe thinks highly of herself and that she is some noble. She takes pride in her herd and always acts like someone important. Since zebras are closer to donkeys and not horses, she tried to hide that fact and feels really embarrassed when that's brought up.
Once Jin revealed her to be more donkey than horse, she joined the donkeys and became very invested in their game, becoming very proud of her prowess and success. in addition, she befriended the donkey brothers she once looked down upon and now considers them to be part of her herd.
Chroe is shown to have very powerful kicking abilities much like real world zebras, whose kicks are said to be among the most powerful in the animal kingdom, capable of severely injuring and even killing animals of equal or larger size. It’s because of her kicks that she was able to claim the championship title for Magic: The Donkeys.
She is also able to kick instinctively as a defense mechanism, shown when Chii Suimori attempted to suck her blood, only to be warded off by a reflexive kick when Chroe felt what she described as bloodlust, despite not seeing Chii before or after the attempt.
Ranka Ookami went and begged Chroe to join her herd and Chroe accepted she being her pack horse. As they walked around school, Ranka was carrying Chroe's luggage, but as she dropped it, Chroe warned her she will pay if something was damaged. Chroe was about to whip Ranka, when Hitomi Hino interrupted asking she to not do it and saying that Chroe could carry some of the luggage too, since that wasn't a good way to make friends. Chroe explained that Ranka begged her to join her herd and in the end she accepted. As Ranka explained her reasons, Chroe felt annoyed she wanted to join another pack and tried hitting her, but Jin Mazama stopped her. Looking him in the eyes, Chroe backed off and told Ranka she was fired, as she wasn't fitting their proud and noble horse herd. Jin wondered what right she had to say that and Chroe's herd explained she was a zebra, a rare striped horse. Jin then told everyone that zebras were donkeys and explained how they were closer to them than horses. Chroe started panicking, telling everyone that Jin was lying and kept asking for a proof. Jin then lifted her up and revealed her tail, which was only fluffy at the end, like with donkeys. Chroe then felt really embarrassed and ran away. After this revelation, Chroe ends up joining the donkeys and takes interest in the card battles they often play.
- She is the current world champion of Magic: The Donkeys, the card game she and the other donkeys frequently play and a parody of the real-world game Magic: The Gathering. Interestingly, the design of the cards in the manga resembled Yu-Gi-Oh! cards, though change to a much more accurate design in the anime adaptation.
