Chloe Frazer was born in India on October, 1972, and is the daughter of unnamed parents, which her father being Indian archeologist who had high knowledge with Indian mythology and the Hoysala Empire. Her father was deeply obsessed with the Hoysala Empire, and drove Chloe and her mother away so he could find the Tusk of Ganesh. Chloe was raised by her mother in Australia, as her father went after the Tusk of Ganesh, which would lead to his death by rebels and thieves. Due to her father pushing her away, Chloe gained a cynical view on the world, and would only trust herself and not risk herself for anyone else.
Chloe first appears in the comic when holding Nathan at gunpoint, but the latter manages to escape by throwing dust into her eyes. Wanting to steal the Amber Seal, Chloe fights Drake again at the auction until Frazer accidently sets off the alarm. The two then escape, but Nathan obtains the Amber Seal before leaving.
Chloe works with Harry Flynn on searching for Marco Polo's lost fleet, and Frazer meets with Nathan, and the two decide to run away together with the profits of their upcoming job. Frazer assists Nathan and Harry in breaking into the Istanbul Palace Museum, but Flynn betrays Drake and has him arrested while returning to his boss Zoran Lazarevic. Three months later, Chloe and Sully free Nathan from his imprisonment, and work together to find Polo's fleet before Lazarevic and Flynn can do so. Frazer continues to act as a double agent for Nathan and Sully within Lazarevic's group, and has the two set charges around Zoran's camp to set up a distraction. The group then reach a tomb that contains a map pointing to a temple in Nepal, and a Phurba that looks like a dagger.
When leaving the tomb, Chloe sees Flynn and Lazarevic's men arrive, and fakes a betrayal to Nate and Sully so they could escape. During the incident, Flynn learns of the location in Nepal when getting the map and orders Frazer to kill the two. She then saves the two from Zoran's men, allowing Nathan and Sully to escape as she pretends to have been attacked. In Nepal, Chloe and Nathan work together to reach the temple and battle against Lazarevic's army. During their travel, they encounter Elena Fisher and Jeff Wynis, who are reporting Lazarevic's crimes against the city. Once reaching the temple, Chloe and Nathan learn that Shambhala is located in the Himalayas, but are forced to fight against Zoran's soldiers when leaving.
When Jeff is critically injured, Chloe wants to leave him and Elena behind, but Nathan refuses to do so and attempts to save Wynis. When reaching a dead end, Chloe betrays the group when Lazarevic and Flynn arrive, and she heads off with Harry to the train while Nathan and Elena escape. On the train, Chloe reunites with Nathan, but refuses to leave since she didn't want to be rescued as Drake made his choice with staying with Elena and Jeff. During their argument, Flynn arrives and wounds Nathan, but Frazer prevents Harry from killing Drake before heading to the upper part of the train. Continuing the search for the Cintamani stone in the Himalayas, she reunites with Nathan and allows him to take the dagger to open the gates to Shambhala.
Lazarevic learns of Chloe's betrayal and holds her and Elena hostage, and has Nathan open the gates with the reluctant assistance of Flynn. Once in Shambhala, the group are attacked by guardians, forcing Chloe, Nathan and Elena to fight against the creatures and Lazarevic's men. Reaching the sap tree, Nathan realizes that the resin made the guardians what they were, but they are interrupted by a wounded Flynn, who attempts to kill the trio with a grenade. Elena is wounded from the grenade blast, and Frazer agrees to stay with her as Nathan heads down below to stop Lazarevic. Afterward, Chloe and Nathan escape from a crumbling Shambhla with Elena, and return to the Nepal village to recover. At the village, Chloe tells Nathan to go after Elena since he is in love with her.
Chloe reunites with Nate and Sully in finding the Atlantis of the Sands, and works with Charlie Cutter on their adventure. After Nate, Sully and Cutter trick Katherine Marlowe and Talbot into taking the fake Sir Francis Drake ring, Chloe comes out of the van and tells the group that Marlowe went into a building. After finding the secret hideout, Chloe is tasked with staying in the van to prepare for a quick getaway if needed, and later helps them escape from Marlowe's agents.
At their hideout, the group discuss the next step to finding the next clue, and Nate decides to let Chloe and Cutter go to Syria while he and Sully to France. Chloe and Cutter explore the Syrian castle, and run into Nate and Sully, who came to rescue them from Marlowe's men. The group manage to solve the clues to find the secret entrance, but have to fight more agents across the castle. When Cutter is drugged by Talbot, Chloe manages to understand the next puzzle, and later snaps Charlie out his state when he is strangling Nate.
Chloe and the group solve more puzzles and acquire the amulet, but are held at gunpoint by Talbot and his men when reaching outside. Cutter then fakes being brainwashed and shoots Talbot, ordering his friends to run. Chloe, Sully and Nate make it to safety, but Cutter ends up trapped on one of the towers, and is confronted by Marlowe. Marlowe orders her Talbot and her men to light a fire on the tower to kill him, but Cutter jumps off and breaks his leg. Chloe and Nate are forced to fight off Marlowe's agents while Sully carries Cutter out of the castle, and the group manage to escape by getting in a bus. Chloe then attempts to have Nate drop the adventure, but Cutter warns that he will never forgive him if he does. Chloe decides to back out to help Cutter with his broken leg, and Nate and Sully continue their adventure with Elena in Yemen.
A Thief's End
Chloe is briefly mentioned in A Thief's End, when Nathan rummages through his things in the attic, where Chloe's notes states that she's willing for another adventure if she's in.
The Lost Legacy
Wanting to solve her father's search for the tusk of Ganesh, Chloe travels to India and partners with Nathan's brother Sam. However, Sam is abducted by Asav, thus leaving Frazer to partner with Nadine Ross In the city, Chloe learns that Asav is searching for the tusk, as he wants to rally the people of India for a civil war. Frazer and Ross sneak into Asav's office and find a map that points to the Ghats and a disc, but are caught by him and are forced to escape. In the Ghats, the duo work together to look for the tusk, but discover that the emperor made a false trail and that the true location is at Belur.
While heading there, the two encounter Asav once again, and battle him which results in losing the disc and being defeated by the brute. Nadine then learns from Chloe that she is working with Sam when spying on Asav's forces, and Ross leaves Frazer until the two later reconcile. While solving several puzzles along the way, they are captured by Asav, who has Chloe use the disc to find the tusk since he learns that Sam was misleading him. Chloe solves the puzzle and reveals the truth of Ganesh allowing Parashurama to cut off his tusk to prevent the axe appearing useless to his father. Asav then leaves Chloe, Nadine and Sam to die when setting off a trap, but Frazer is able to use a lockpick to escape. The trio then work together to obtain the tusk and along the way learn that Nadine's former group Shoreline is working with the insurgent leader.
Defeating Nadine's former second-in-command Orca, they learn that Asav traded the tusk for a bomb so he could set it off in the city and start his civil war. Realizing that it will kill innocent people, including a little girl named Meenu that she befriended, Chloe decides to head to Asav's train to stop him. Chloe and Nadine board the train and fight off Asav's insurgents, before fighting the insurgent leader and defeating him. The two then escape from the collapsing train as Asav dies from the bomb explosion, and reunite with Sam. Chloe and Nadine decide to become partners in the treasure hunting business, and intend to donate the tusk to the ministry of culture much to Sam's horror. Presumably after doing so, the trio then return to the city and eat pizza with Meenu.
While Elena brings out the best of Nathan Drake, Chloe is the contingent of Drake's wild and bad side. Chloe is extremely adaptable and a strong-willed fighter, she as well cares for the partners she encounters however she has known to be more self-preserved and will look out her own best-interests should the situation demand for it. The perfect example is when Jeff was wounded and Nate tried to carry him though the war-torn streets of Nepal as to save him, Chloe pleaded to leave him behind as he would only hold them back. Despite this demenour she does care about and will protect the people she encounters.
Chloe is very sexually forward as well, especially with attractive male partners. She has shown to be very seductive and knows what she wants and how to get it an example would be when meeting with Drake, she was obviously the aggressor of the relationship it can be assumed this is the same with Flynn. Chloe is also incredibly assertive, despite their meeting going to a bad start with Drake as he was angry with her new founded partnership with Flynn she was able to both calm him down, clear him about her and Flynn's plan to locate the ships and split the take three ways then later have sex with him, all the while assuring Nate that Flynn was going to be "fine" after discovering the two have a "mostly professional" relationship. These are all factors of Chloe's "dominatrix" personality.
Chloe possesses the same wit as Nathan Drake but is considerably more cynical. Despite her self-preservation she will definitely protect the people she cares about. When Elena was wounded by Flynn's suicide grenade and told Drake and herself to kill Lazarević by leaving her behind Chloe writ it off and helped carry her through Shambhala while Drake cleared the two of them a path. Another example is when Cutter was under the affect of a drug, causing him to behave violently towards Drake. While Sullivan was prepared to shoot him as he was about to strangle Nate to death Chloe was able to snap him out of his trance as well look after Charlie when he was injured. She also saw Drake's obsession with Iram pointlessly dangerous as it was risking all their lives.
Skills and Abilities
|“||If you need someone who can talk, shoot, or drive her way out of a sticky situation, Chloe Frazer is the one to call. But be warned: her allegiances are as varied as her skill set, and she'll work for anyone as long as their price is right and their priorities (i.e. her) are straight. Take good care of her, or she'll take care of you... and not in a sexy way.||„|
|~ Chloe's bio in A Thief's End.|
Chloe is an extremely adept driver being described as the best in the business by Harry Flynn and Charlie Cutter. She is also quite intelligent, rivaling both Drake and Flynn's an example is when Nate translated a file by Marco Polo and realized that he was talking about the lost fleet, instantly. Chloe is quite good with guns and marksmanship, when Drake was overpowered by Draza during their brawl on board the train and close to being choked to death, she was able to shoot him square in the head. Though it hasn't been shown, she is a skilled fighter.
Chloe is quite a good actor as well. When meeting with Drake on the beach she was able to pretend the two had not and when she "ambushed" Drake and Victor Sullivan in Borneo she was able to pretend to be surprised when she encountered the two of them as well as the discovery of Marco Polo's map.
Despite being an impressive fighter, Chloe can be outmatched at times. An example is when she and Elena were covering Drake and an injured Jeff from Lazarevic's soldiers and she was ambushed by a soldier who came close to killing her should Drake not have intervened. Another time is when she was overpowered by Harry Flynn after her true allegiances were revealed, and when fighting Asav by herself.
