Crusch is an albino lizardman with snow-white scales and spotless purity. She has round bright red eyes like rubies and slim limbs.
Crusch possesses a strong will and was willing to not give up so long as there is hope. Before Crusch met Zaryusu, she was quite shy because of her albinism and did not seem to leave her home on a regular basis. She also had a low sense of self-esteem and believed that all other lizardmen would look at her with disgust. She deeply cares for those around her and would do anything to keep them safe.
Crusch Lulu was born an albino which normally would mean that in the lizardmen community, she would be abandoned. In Lulu's case, however, her parents decided to raise her even with this genetic fault. Over the course of time, she proved herself to be a strong practitioner of magic.
When the famine in the Wetlands occurred, Red Eye managed to stave off extinction through fratricide. However, unable to bear with the guilt and shame, Crusch led a rebellion against the previous chief. Her rebellion was a success and the mantle of leadership was passed down to her making her the chieftain of the Red Eye Tribe.

Crusch Lulu meets the envoy of the Green Claw, Zaryusu Shasha, who fell in love with her at first sight. He immediately proposes to Crusch right away, causing her to become befuddled at his display of emotion. Later on, they would both seriously discuss their race's current predicament in the upcoming invasion. After some degree of urgency and subtle use of blackmail, she was thoroughly convinced by Zaryusu to have her tribe, Red Eye in joining their tribal alliance. Both Zaryusu, Rororo, and Crusch then make their way to appeal to the Dragon Tusk Tribe.
By coming there, however, they are met with hostility from the Dragon Tusk Tribe and it is particularly Zaryusu who gets their attention. As many members of the tribe were also former tribesmen of Yellow Speckle and Sharp Edge, tribes defeated by Green Claw in the resource war. Then Zenberu Gugu, leader of Dragon Tusk appeared and challenged Zaryusu to a duel before gaining his tribe's participation in the war and completing the tribal alliance. Crusch watches from the sidelines and witnesses Zaryusu's victory over Zenberu Gugu. After healing the two warriors, Crusch and Zaryusu are treated to a banquet.
All three representatives travel together and rendezvous at the Razor Tail village where the rest of the tribal leaders have gathered. There Crusch was introduced to her future brother-in-law Shasuryu Shasha. At the tribal chieftain assembly, Crusch was placed in charge of the tribes' druids to strengthen the alliance's defenses. Crusch and the other druids prepared the tribal war ritual to strengthen the alliances' morale. She played a vital role in summoning the Swamp Elemental and supporting Zenberu and Zaryusu in their battle against the undead army.
After the battle, she and Zaryusu spent a romantic night together. The next day she alongside Zaryusu witnessed the arrival of a second undead army. After Zaryusu and Shasuryu returned from a parley with the invaders, she learns of the duel that will decide the fate of the lizardmen. Before Zaryusu departs, she spends one last night with him so that she may bear his child.
Inevitably, the loss goes to the lizardmen when all the tribal leaders and strong warriors are slaughtered by Cocytus, ending with Crusch in becoming the de facto chieftain of the Lizardmen Alliance. Cocytus brings her to the Monument of Ruin, before Ainz Ooal Gown. She offers the official surrender of the lizardmen and fears that the lizardmen will be enslaved. Quite to the contrary, the Overlord assures her that he will ensure the prosperity of her race with Cocytus ruling in his stead. The female lizardman is offered a chance to have Zaryusu resurrected, in return, she would act as Ainz's eyes and ears for any plans of rebellion by dissidents. Crusch accepted Ainz's offer and is later present during Zaryusu's resurrection.

Some time after the protagonist permanently migrated to E-Rantel to coordinate with the Tripartite Alliance, Crusch as acting deputy chieftain of Red Eye joined the nascent Lizardmen Alliance. At the time she had already became close in relationship with Zaryusu Shasha and would be teased by him and her fellow chieftains. She would be introduced to Cocytus. Crushc was made aware of the alliance's current mutual relations with the Great Tomb of Nazarick and the Supreme One. She learned from Zenberu Gugu of how three agents of Nazarick in red clothes saved the Great Lake from freezing over. At the meeting with Cocytus the other chieftains of the lizardmen she and her colleagues affirmed to work hard to return the aid the Supreme One showed them numerous times asking the Floor Guardian to relay their message to his master.
Upon receiving a personal invite from Cocytus to attend the Sorcerer Kingdom's National Foundation Day Ceremony to cement the lizardmen as part of a nation, Crusch was wary of the idea given her Cocytus's masters always kept their base secret. Her concerns were brushed aside by Zaryusu as he believed that it was a way for their benefactors to express their gratitude. The lizardmen were transported from the Great Lake region to Fake Nazarick via carriage. Though Crusch's companions found the ride to be pleasant, the Red Eye chieftain noticed that the ride took numerous turns to make ascertaining the location of the kingdom difficult. Crusch and her friends were greeted by Yuri Alpha and the Pleiades and brought to meet the other guests attending the event. At the ceremony, Momonga personally addressed the lizardmen, acknowledging their alliance to the Sorcerer Kingdom. Furthermore Momonga was aware of Crusch and Zaryusu's upcoming wedding and promised to give them a wedding gift afterwards something which touched the female demi-human to let go of her suspicions. Crusch and her party would be guided to the banquet of the venue where they enjoyed the delicacies provided, made small talk with Cocytus and participated in the ballroom dance. Before returning to the Great Lake, Crusch was able to admired the newly unveiled Sorcerer King Momonga Statue.
The lizardmen were graced by a visit from an entourage from the Sorcerer Kingdom when the village was celebrating Zaryusu's union with Crusch. The visitors included not just the usual faces, but none other than Prime Minister Albedo. For a change the lizardmen were sought help from their patrons, concerning information on usable fiber plants from the Tob Forests that could be used for fabrics. Crusch was introduced to Albedo who took an interest due to her pregnancy the two eventually became friends after the druid explained the material of the tapestry of the symbol of Red Eye. Crusch provided some information on the type of grass used and method. This intrigued Albedo who believed that she could adapt it and offered to make the female lizardman a handmade rug as a gift for her upcoming child.
Crusch was present when her mate brought the protagonist, Slimeko, Aura, and Mare in their home along with the other lizardmen chieftains after training with the dark elves in preparation for a scouting mission to the isolated island. Just before the party from Sorcerer Kingdom was about to leave, Zaryusu Shasha requested permission to join the expedition to the shock of his peers. A few such as hi brother advised against it due to Crusch's expecting to give birth to a child, but Crusch ultimately allowed her mate to go knowing his desire as a traveler to see new lands. She insisted that she would be alright in his absence and hoped that he would bring back a new heroic tale for their offspring.

Ainz made a deal with Crusch Lulu where he would revive Zaryusu in exchange of her keeping a close watch on whether there are lizardmen thinking of rebelling.

Or perhaps he is already accustomed to this having proposed so often?... Although he certainly is rather dashing... Ah, what am I thinking! This is part of his plan, it must be, intending to control me, making a proposal to me and proclaiming love. P-p-proposing to someone like me..."
