Playable Story Characters
- Voiced by: Kouki Uchiyama (Japanese), Jared Zeus (English)
- Chronic Hero Syndrome: Aldo is always willing to help anyone he meets with whatever they need help with, no matter how unimportant it may seem. Isuka lampshades it by calling Aldo a "busybody" to rib him a bit.
- Foreshadowing: The bell collar and the cat on his character illustration. It's a hint about the fact that he's not Professor Chronos' son, but his cat.
- For Want of a Nail: If Sorik the Baruoki cat didn't wander into a spacetime tear, he wouldn't have been adopted by the Chronos family as Kyros and turned into Aldo by the Geo Prisma. Without this turn of events, the whole plot would've been very different since Phantom's plan wouldn't have been kickstarted and Feinne would still be Guildna's prisoner..
- Heroes Prefer Swords: He uses a sword, as is common for the main character in an RPG.
- "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: In Ogre Wars Part 2, Ogre Rancorem takes over Aldo's body. You have to beat the tar out of him to free him.
- Magnetic Hero: He's able to attract a lot of allies to join him in his quest, especially once you count the player characters gotten through dreams. This includes people who would be on bad terms (Deirdre before The Reveal and Anabel), bitter rivals (Krervo and Nonold) or mortal enemies (Miyu and Shion)
- Nice Guy: Always willing to help out those in need. He's known as his hometown's golden boy for a reason.
- Oblivious to Love: Fan pairings aside, Aldo is none the wiser to the girls who fall for him throughout the game such as Azami and Shanie.
- Only the Chosen May Wield: He's the only one that can draw Ogre Rancorem, the weapon that provides the ability to use Another Force.
- Primary-Color Champion: Wears a blue tunic and red cape.
- Straight Man: Usually serves as this to the more eccentric party members' antics, such as Suzette.
- Super Move Portrait Attack: As Aldo is the only character with the Protagonist personality type, he gets his own finisher if nobody else in the party is capable of a Combination Attack at the end of a fully charged Another Force.
- Time to Unlock More True Potential: The Ogre Wars Part I arc has Aldo obtain the powers of the Dragon God, gaining a 5-star Ability Board in the process.
- Tomato in the Mirror:
- Aldo learns from the phantom that he's related to Professor Chronos of the future. Further investigation reveals that the Chronos's son is actually named Eden, not Aldo.
- Aldo later learns that he misunderstood the phantom, and he's not actually Eden. He was actually the professor's cat, transformed into a replica of Eden. And then he learns he was actually Sorik, the cat one of the children in Baruoki lost at the beginning of the game, who walked into a spacetime tear and ended up with the Chronos family.
- Unexplained Recovery: After reverting back into a cat and merging with Eden, who then fades away, Aldo manages to return home and regain his human form.

- All-Loving Hero: Feinne believes in showing kindness to everyone, and will befriend beastfolk (a traditional enemy of humans) without batting an eye. Reading journals in the Beast King's castle reveal that she pleaded for mercy for a beast man that hit her.
- Damsel in Distress: The Beast King kidnapping her sets Aldo's quest in motion.
- Feminine Women Can Cook: The very first food item you get in her homemade sandwiches and she'll give you more if you don't have food in your inventory after rescuing her and she's much more feminine than Amy, Riica or Helena.

- Fusion Dance: She fuses with the Beast King's sister Altena, creating the monstrous Beast Angel Geo Anguirus.
- Late Character Syndrome: Feinne suffers the most from this trope because she only joins the roster after Chapter 25 and the tome to upgrade her is obtained from a Very Hard Another Dungeon. In comparison, the rest of the story cast have upgrade tomes that can be found in Hard Another Dungeons or Side Episodes, meaning they're likely already competent before the endgame. A player who has made it this far would likely already have a better healer (like Riica) and Feinne's kit doesn't offer enough to compensate for her shortcomings. Future updates promise 5-star upgrades for storyline characters, but Feinne is the only one who hasn't had that perk yet.
- Moses in the Bulrushes: Feinne was found abandoned in the woods as a baby. Professor Chronos was planning on rewriting time, so he sent her back in time to prevent her from being erased with the rest of the future.

- Late Character Syndrome: As the final party member to join before Chapter 25, the player is likely to not even field her as they lack the resources to upgrade her right off the bat.
