Chyna Parks is the main protagonist of the hit Disney Channel show "A.N.T. Farm". She is a bright, bubbly teenager who is an exceptional musical prodigy and was formerly in Webster High School's A.N.T. Program. She plays 40+ different instruments, preferring to play the guitar, violin, and piano. She is also an amazing singer, even placing 2nd place in the 2011 America's Got Talent competition. Along with her friends Olive Doyle and Fletcher Quimby, Chyna navigates the trials of being in high school at a young age. Currently, she attends Z-Tech Prodigy School in Palo Alto, California.
Appearance & Style
Chyna Parks is an African-American teenage girl of average height with full lips and warm-brown skin. In Season 1, her hair is straight, black, and shoulder-length in a bob. In Season 2, her hair becomes much longer and bone-straight with colorful highlights (some episodes she has brown, red, or purple highlights, or none at all). In Season 3, her hair becomes curly and she has black ringlets with auburn-colored tips. Her fashion sense consists of colorful cardigans, shoulder-padded jackets, solid tees, graphic tees, platform shoes, wedges, boots, blue jeans, black pants, colorful pants, colorful tights, black tights, and khaki pants. She rarely wears dresses. Her main fashion colors are red, blue, pink, and purple, however she wears all colors as long as they match. Chyna's accessories consist of neutral-colored necklaces and earrings, and colorful rings and bracelets. Her style is based around girly things, her love of music, and rockstars.
PersonalityChyna is typically upbeat and optimistic when her friends have a problem. She can usually be seen cheering up her friends, family, and classmates with her reassurance and resolutions. Chyna adores helping others and being a charitable person in general. This desire to constantly aid others has cultivated in an uncanny ability to formulate outlandish plans to fix problems. For example, in "fraudulANT", Chyna successfully breaks into a high-security art museum with her friends and retrieves Fletcher's painting that was stolen by Zanko, who took credit for the artwork. Another example of the great lengths she goes to help those she cares for is in "modeling assignmANT". In that episode, she pretends to be a high-fashion magazine editor, arranges a fake hot-air balloon picnic, lies about Cameron's physique, and manages to get a famous model to transfer to Webster High School so the two can date. Chyna consistently goes above and beyond the standards to aid people.
Chyna is also a very positive, cheerful girly-girl. This girliness can be noticed by her locker decorations, mannerisms, and fashion style. Her cheeriness occasionally causes excitable episodes when meeting celebrities. One such moment of excitement is when Sequoia Jones says she will be following Chyna around for role research, to which Chyna jubilantly jumps up and down at. One more episode is shown when she meets the famous girl group Trifecta (who she manically greets) and the famous singer Madame Goo Goo (who she gawks over). Chyna's positivity can be shown when she tries to make the best of dire situations, like when she was trapped in Z-Tech by Zoltan Grundy's holographic clone during Christmas Eve.
Chyna is very confident, outgoing, and self-assured. She loves trying new things like trying out for the cheerleading squad in "participANTs", quickly agreeing to go on tour with the girl group Trifecta, and playing on the volleyball team in "early retiremANT". She takes any chance she can get to present her musical talents, sometimes to the point of being seen as a show-off by some, like Lexi Reed. She helps get others, like Olive Doyle, emerge from their introverted shell and mature with her zest for doing new things. She can sometimes get insecure when she is insulted, but she quickly shakes off any feelings of unworthiness and shoots back a sharp retort. These exchanges typically happen with her main rival, Lexi. She also becomes insecure and shaken-up when Principal Skidmore is around, whom she despises and fears.
Even though Chyna is sweet and friendly, she can be very snarky, sassy, and snappy when she is annoyed or pushed too far. This is shown in "the replacemANT" when she gets into a confrontation with Olive as the new history teacher after the latter gives her detention for "talking back" (Chyna stated that she was four months older than Olive). Her sarcasm is usually reserved for people who are dimwitted and goofy, like Cameron, Darryl, and Fletcher. Her sarcasm and retorts prove that Chyna is witty, too.
Chyna is a very intelligent girl for her age. Along with being a musical prodigy who is masterful at composing songs and playing instruments, she can write large, important speeches (like in "idANTity crisis"), is a straight-A student, remember giant dance routines and songs like "Go" ("chANTs of a lifetime"), and create grandiose schemes to help herself and others. However, she does struggle in math and does not perform well in academics while under pressure ("intelligANT"). But, she is a pretty good history student, minus the occasional missing permission slip ("the replacemANT").
In TransplANTed, Chyna walks in and feels wowed by her new school. When she walks into the A.N.T Farm she meets Gibson; the weird teacher at the A.N.T Farm. After, she meets Olive Doyle, a girl with an identical memory, Angus Chestnut, a computer genius and Fletcher Quimby, an artistic genius who develops a crush on her immediately. In her music class, she meets Lexi Reed, a popular girl who grows to dislike Chyna, and Paisley Houndstooth, Lexi's best friend, who isn't bright. She also meets Mr. Zimbaldi, the music teacher. There, he allows her to play the violin in front of the class, thus, making everyone acknowledge who she is.
Later on, she and her friends go to Lexi's party, trying to prove she's not a little kid. The three attempt to look more mature by changing their style. Before this, Chyna tells her dad that she's studying with Olive and Fletcher since he wouldn't let her leave. In her room, she and they sneak out using her bedroom window, leaving wax sculptures in her room as decoys. At the party, she tells her friends to not act like little kids. When she tries to fit in with the big kids, her brother Cameron embarrasses her by spilling some of her secrets. After, the ANTs accidentally ruin the stereo, making everyone angry at them. So Chyna sings Dynamite for them replacing the now broken stereo. Finishing her song, her dad comes to the party, takes her home and grounds her. Later at the end of the episode, she sets up all of her music equipment and goes to lunch with Olive and Fletcher.
In ParticipANTs Chyna and Olive have to join activities. When the two of them

In The PhANTom Locker, Olive moves into Chyna's locker, thinking a ghost is haunting her locker.

Olive learns that Chyna only did this so she could move back to her previous locker, causing her to get mad. In the end, they make up.
In SciANTs Fair, Chyna spent no time studying, knowing for a fact that she'll fail her test. When she gets an A, she believes that the teacher is giving ANTs extra credit, making her feel guilty about not failing. So, she does a horrible project, thinking of receiving an A, but ends up failing, learning that everyone got As because the teacher was too lazy to mark the tests.
