Chrysanthemum is described by her modeling agency to be a rare case of a high schooler who has what seems to be unattainable beauty. With soft, blonde hair and violet eyes, she is undeniably attractive, to the point where strangers and friends alike call her a doll.
She strictly follows a diet as instructed by her profession in order to maintain a slim figure.
At first glance, Chrysanthemum appears to be the epitome of spoiled and vain. She surrounds herself with the most popular girls of (school name), all of whom have polished appearances, practiced personalities, as well as full-fledged social lives. In addition to her school-wide status, her modeling career as well as her experience in professional ballet has earned her a reputation for being very unapproachable.
Deep down, Chrys is unhappy with her life. To her, image is everything—without it, her career would be ruined. Therefore, she has to adopt the behaviors of the people around her so that she is likable at all times. She is unable to express personal feelings, thereby furthering her regression into her hidden complex of festering, knee-jerk hostility.
Although Chrys does not genuinely consider the girls of (school) to be her true friends, she is still adamant on defending them against criticism, knowing that they—albeit unknowingly—are only conforming to expectations, just like her.

- She is named after the titular main character of Chrysanthemum, a children's book by Kevin Henkes that has received acclaim for its message on bullying, self-esteem, and acceptance.
- Her nickname was coined by Clive after she came home from the first day of pre-school and complained that "Chrysanthemum" was too long to fit on the "Hi, my name is..." name card. She then grew to dislike "Chrys" as well because of how masculine it sounded.
