Aldo (アルド, Arudo) is a supporting character in Suikoden IV. Aldo is an empathetic archer who tries to reach out to Ted during their time together.
Aldo was a young archer who spent his life living in forests. At some point, he apparently had become separated from his colleagues and was lost on the small Hermitage Island until he was rescued by the Headquarters Ship.
Due to his isolation, he was at first uneasy around the many people on board the ship, but his quiet, good-natured personality seemed to quickly shine through. In addition, he cared about Ted, even as he tried to push others away from himself. Despite Ted's attitude, Aldo would continue to keep an open mind and pursue conversations with him.
Following the Island Liberation War, a concerned Aldo seemed to follow Ted for a time before passing away in a mysterious accident. Whether Aldo fell victim to the curse of Ted's Soul Eater or perished in a freak accident is unknown.
|Keen||You have done well by coming here. In this room, you may confess what is in your heart and accept proper judgement.|
|Aldo||Umm, okay...I guess I'll try to answer what I can. Please go ahead.|
|Keen||Would you secretly inform me about anyone onboard this ship who you think is causing problems?|
|Aldo||Ted...I think...I mean, he could be a little more friendly...with everyone. It's not like I'm saying this to badmouth him. It was just something that came to my attention...|
|Keen||Then, would you tell me what you think of the Hero?|
|Aldo||Well, he's my lifesaver for taking me in when I was lost, so...I'm really grateful for him.|
|Keen||Finally, quietly confess the things you wish to atone for, or all the things that you are thankful for.|
|Aldo||Something I want to atone for? I don't have anything, I don't think...Not right now.|
|Aldo||...!! Wh-Why?! Did I do something wrong?|
|After obtaining the Golden Seal, find Aldo on Hermitage Island (Back path) and talk to him.|
- If Ted is not recruited, his ending will change. Instead of dying, he returns to the forest.
