Forte (フォルト) is the main protagonist in The Legend of Heroes III: Song of the Ocean. He is a fourteen year-old musician who comes from a rural village by the coasts.



A village boy from Racos Palma living inside of a wrecked ship that his father has changed into a house. Forte lives together with his parents and his grandfather McBain, and enjoys fishing, playing instruments, and playing with his childhood friend Una. After his parents ask him to, Forte decides to follow his grandfather on a journey to visit all the towns, villages and cities on the continent.


Forte fights using a sword and can equip heavy armor and shields for defense. He specializes in attacking up close with his sword, however he is not as effective with attack spells as McBain and Una are, so he will deal the most physical damage out of all the characters. As a way to make up for his less effective magical talents, he has the highest critical hit rate of the party. Forte's skills focus on increasing his physical stats and allows him to act as a tank with his high defense and HP should he need to take attention away from other more fragile characters like Una.
