Korcha is a ferryman from Guldove and is the son of Macha. Raised without a father, he developed a knack for making his own waves in life, and started his own ferry company while causing trouble around Termina. He was shunned by the residents there for his roughness and crude behavior. His intentions were noble, however; he wanted to see Demi-humans and Humans living in peace, and also brought medicinal grass to an ailing girl. In 1020 A.D., while sailing near the Viper Manor Bluffs, he found Kid and the others, who had jumped from Viper Manor after the confrontation with Lynx (if Guile was used to accompany Serge and Kid in their infiltration, then Korcha actually piloted them there in the first place). He took the wounded adventurers back to Guldove, where Kid was diagnosed with Hydra poison. When Serge vowed to look for the Hydra Humour, Korcha accompanied him to Termina and later formally joined the party on the condition that he be given the recovered Dragon Tear and Kid marry him after the quest ended. Kid gave him a little false hope to convince him to join. Afterwards, he stayed with Serge throughout his travels; eventually, he was able to help the encaged Termina Mermaid free herself by giving her words of encouragement. As thanks, she gave him his level 7 technique, BigCatch.
Alternatively, if Serge decided to leave Kid alone and continue on without searching for the Humour, Korcha became indignant and refused to lend his boat to Serge. Macha intervened and loaned them the boat on her own accord, and eventually joined the party. Korcha remained fuming angry in his house ever after.
Chrono Cross HD Remaster Twitter bio: Korcha - "Self-proclaimed South Sea fisherman" Born and raised in the maritime village of Guldove, he is a bright and strong boy. He has been familiar with the sea since he was a child, and is a skilled port builder and carrier using a homemade boat. He also loves fishing, but his skills are not so good. He has a foul mouth, but he is kind at heart and will lend a helping hand to anyone who is in need. He may be naive or immune to the opposite sex, but when he falls in love with a woman, he goes straight for her.
In Home World, Korcha can be found in his room in Guldove, simply sitting around studying.
[Korcha] Your fortune reads, that it is a hopeless love... I'm sorry, but you've got to give up. Korcha: Arrgh!!! Don't give me such boloney!
Korcha: HotCHACHA! This is greatCHA! It feels like firecrackers are going off in my head. Korcha: I getCHA... I understand it now! All living things are really connected in their hearts! There's nothing to worry about.
Korcha: So this is the final gate, leadin' to the darkness of time. The time has come to settle everythin' once and for all... Let's do it up! For a brighter future, where humans and demi-humans can coexist in harmony!
Korcha: Well... Uhhh... Ummm... It's been fun, Serge. Hope to catch up with you again, sometime. Later!
