Chorby Short is a magical little frog that can transform into a magical girl. Short has lived in many places, from Yellowstone to Boston, but most recently she has lived in Breckenridge. It was in Colorado that Short was assimilated into theatre kid culture due to her involvement in the Breckenridge Jazz Hands. Short quickly noticed the parallels between the dramatic lives of magical girls and the drama of theatre and took to it easily.
When not on the Blaseball field, Short can often be seen with Zippy DeShields, one of her Jazz Hands teammates who is a skate kid who can transform into a turtle through magical skateboard tricks. The two like to hang out in a pond in the Pit's library, occasionally causing a ruckus and sometimes helping the library's caretaker, Spears Rogers. Short can also sometimes be found expanding her spell repertoire with the help of her teammates. She is proud of her new agility spells (roller skating tricks she learned from Wyatt Pothos) and weaponized soundwave spells (playing the entire BATS soundtrack on an otamatone). After receiving a Steel Chair in Season β23, Short has perfected the "Makes Your Bones Hurt" spell.
Short feels at home wherever she lives as she is strengthened by her connection to the natural world and the ecosystem, including the people within it, and she loves to befriend all of those people. They will befriend Chorby Short. She likes to keep in contact with her friends from her previous homes, such as Curry Aliciakeyes back in Yellowstone.
