- "The one that's hidin' within me is not '"another me"'... It's just another '"part of me."' I am who I am... Including my dark side. It isn't right to think of my other side as a separate entity whom I can criticize... Rather, I must accept who I am as a whole..."
- — Orcha
Orcha (オーチャ Ōcha?) is a character in Chrono Cross, and is a robust, rough chef hailing from Guldove who worked as the primary cook in Viper Manor for the Acacia Dragoons. In Home World, his brother owns and cooks for a restaurant in Arni.
Growing up in a family of chefs, his brother, Belcha, moved to Arni to open a diner. It is likely assumed that he follows. However, the details of his early life are unclear. At some point, he eventually finds work with the Acacia Dragoons, preparing food and rations for them every night. He is known to have a dark side and gloats at times. Before the Porre invasion of Viper Manor, he temporarily works with a chef-in-training (in actuality, Norris, a spy). After the Porre officers arrived, they saw Orcha's moody bouts and exploited them by giving him Quadffid Seeds and using a special bell to bring out his darker side. He nearly tortures and kills Riddel in her interrogation, but fortunately he is beaten by Serge and his party. Feeling remorse for his actions, he joins Serge and fights alongside him, eventually visiting his brother again in Home World.
How to RecruitEdit
Orcha joins the party after Riddel is rescued and Hell's Cook is battled.
