Carino is first seen in Horne Castle when Brandt presents himself to King Horne to become a man. Carino and her father ask Brandt to save Aire from the Witch's Mansion. After defeating Louhi, Carino and the citizens Horne are changed into stone. After the party defeats Satan in the past, Carino is returned to normal. She is seen at the end of the game with the rest of the royal family.
It is possible her name comes from the Spanish word "carino", a term of endearment literally meaning "love".
