Born in the countryside of Portia, Arlo has always had a sense of justice about him. From an early age, he earned a reputation as an excellent fighter and protector of the weak. When he joined the local Civil Corps, he quickly climbed to become the leader. Arlo's goal is to one day join the Flying Pigs, a world famous guild of adventurers based in Lucien.


Personal SummaryEdit

Arlo is a loyal citizen of Portia and one of its proud defenders. At some point in his adult life, Arlo joined the Portia branch of the Civil Corps. Clearly being a cut above the rest, his skills were recognized and despite only being a young adult, he rose to don the mantle of leadership.

As the leader of the Civil Corps, Arlo is a force to be reckoned with. He is arguably the strongest fighter in Portia. Despite his skill, he refuses to rest on his laurels, training not just with his team, but independently as well.

Arlo isn't just physically strong either. He has a profound sense of right and wrong, and will never take shortcuts when protecting his fellow citizens. Arlo also understands that leadership is about responsibility and not about 'Being in charge', noting that the job and training are the same.

Perhaps the greatest ambition of the Civil Corps' noble leader is to one day join the 'The Flying Pigs'; an elite group of fighters based in Lucien, sworn to protect the free cities.

Arlo's horse is named Spacer in the PC version.

Physical AppearanceEdit

Arlo is very tall with red hair, bushy eyebrows, and an anchor-styled beard with no mustache. He exhibits an unimpressed look and generally does not smile. He wears a blue bandanna with "The Flying Pigs" written on it around his neck. His outfit consists of a white and yellow jacket with gray details, lightly distressed gray jeans, black finger-less gloves, and various tanned leather straps and holsters. His boots are the reverse of this with brown being the dominant color with grey straps as detail. He also has a pair of yellow-lensed goggles clipped to his hip that he never seems to wear. These, along with the bandanna, display his passion for The Flying Pigs and his determination to one day serve in their ranks.

Related CharactersEdit

Arlo doesn't have any family in Portia, but Sam and Remington, his fellow soldiers at the Civil Corps, are his Friends. Ack, whom he helped rescue when his space station crashed into the Collapsed Wasteland, is his Buddy.


When befriending Arlo, his relationship network with other NPCs will also be affected, resulting in the player receiving favor points from those NPCs as well.


Arlo's typical schedule consists of practicing sparring in the Civil Corps building and walking around town or near the Abandoned Ruins. All times are in 24-hour format. Certain events may alter his schedule. At the end of the day, he returns home, which is Civil Corps. His home is open all day.

Arlo is one of the potential bachelors that the player can romance.

Upon reaching Friend status at four full hearts, the player can confess their love to him with a Heart Knot. If the confession is successful, his relationship status changes to Boyfriend. After Arlo has become the player's boyfriend, upon reaching Lover status at eight full hearts, the player can then propose to him with a Wedding Ring. If the proposal is successful, his relationship status changes to Husband. Once certain other conditions have been met, Arlo and the player can then try for children.

Additionally, upon meeting certain relationship levels, certain perks are rewarded.

Social talk ChatEdit

Social talk
Dialogue →

Chat is a basic social interaction available at any relationship level. Chatting with Arlo once a day can increase his relationship by 1 point, or 2 points with the Smooth Talk skill; subsequent chatting, on the same day, only results in the same conversation without any relationship gain.

Arlo's dialogue may change every day and every season. Arlo may also comment about certain events or missions. Higher relationship levels, including romantic involvement, also change Arlo's dialogue.

Social gift GiftEdit

Desire head icon DesiresEdit

The following items are desires, or wishes, which are randomly assigned to one or two characters per week. The player is required to be at least at Associate level with Arlo for him to be assigned a desire. More desires have a chance to appear as the player's friendship with Arlo progresses; the new desires are added to the existing ones but do not replace them. Some characters may desire an item that they do not normally like.

In the event that Arlo has a desire, gifting the wanted item will provide the higher tier points; otherwise, on non-desired events, the item gives the base point value. The birthday or festival day relationship bonus applies when gifting a desired item.

Social Invitation InvitationEdit

Occasionally, first thing in the morning, the player may leave their house to find Arlo outside, hoping to invite the player out for a date or play date.

Social play PlayEdit

Once the player has become buddies with Arlo, they can schedule a play date together.

Social date DateEdit

After the player has successfully confessed how they feel to Arlo, the player can schedule a romantic date with Arlo.

Social Dine DineEdit

If the player chooses to dine at The Round Table with Arlo during a play date or date, it is recommended to order dishes Arlo will like. If asked before ordering, Arlo will sometimes tell the player exactly which dishes to order; other times, Arlo will just give little hints. In the event that Arlo does not specify the exact foods desired, the player should order between three and six dishes, depending on what hint Arlo gives. It is recommended to order each of those dishes from different courses, ex. ordering one Appetizer, Meat, Vegetable, Dessert, and Drink course each, rather than five Desserts.

Social Relic Trade Relic TradeEdit

Arlo occasionally uses the Relic Pieces Exchange board at the Museum to trade for relic pieces. Arlo likes to look at particular completed relics, so after the player has donated such relics to the Museum or displayed them in their yard, Arlo may come visit the Museum or the player's yard to view these relics. Such visits will earn the player relationship points each time, with the amount dependent upon the relic.
