When Talia gives birth to Rose, she leaves baby Rose in the care of Chrysalis, as she cannot take care of Rose herself. Chrysalis agrees to look after and raise Rose, but reassures Talia that she will let her reunite with Rose when the time is right. Chrysalis raises Rose until the latter becomes a toddler, as Chrysalis is killed by her estranged sister Carabosse. After her death, Carabosse disguises herself as Chrysalis so that everybody is none the wiser.
- The name "Chrysalis" refers to the pupa from which a caterpillar becomes a butterfly.
- Chrysalis loosely alludes to the good fairies from Sleeping Beauty.
