Cronicle Asher (クロノクル・アシャー) is one of the main antagonists in Mobile Suit Victory Gundam.
Cronicle Asher is a soldier who will do as he is ordered, but is noted of being critical of pilots who will bomb an area just to draw out a single renegade mobile suit. However he is also a person who will not complain or criticize an order handed down from a superior officer to do the very same action. He is a man capable of ignoring the taunts of others about his failures. Cronicle has little interest in non-combatants and will order civilian children away from areas of danger.
He has an unusual habit of wearing a face-mask whenever he is piloting, but he does not wear it at other times.
Cronicle Asher is the younger brother of the Zanscare Empire's queen Maria Pia Armonia and uncle to Shakti Kareen. He is one of the Zanscare Empire's ace pilots. He forms a rivalry with Uso Ewin that mirrors the rivalry between Char Aznable and Amuro Ray.
In the year UC 0153 Cronicle is the test pilot for the ZMT-S12G Shokew mobile suit. Near the Point Kasarelia area he engages a LM312V04 Victory Gundam core fighter and gets entangled in Uso Ewin's para-glider. Uso manages to enter the Shokew's cockpit where he and Cronicle engage in a fistfight. Due to bad luck Cronicle is thrown from the open cockpit hatch, leaving him stranded in the woods next to a river.
