Heart Aino (愛乃 はぁと, Aino Hāto) is a playable character and the main protagonist of the Arcana Heart series. A sweet and pure young girl who worships love and is known as the "Extraordinarily Rare Maiden". Her family owns a bakery and she spends a lot of time making sweets in hopes of one day getting an original item on the menu. She is best friends with Saki Tsuzura.
Her Arcana is Partinias, the Arcana of Love.
Animals have been attracted to Heart for as long as she has been born, much to her mothers dismay whenever she would bring them home. While the ability to see Arcana is not uncommon, the encouragement from her mother allows her to interact with them even to this day.
This gift and her purity has earned her the title of "Extraordinarily Rare Maiden".
Heart is a fair-skinned girl with big, friendly orange eyes. Her short pink hair is slighly messy, with a section curled out on each side of her head and her thick bangs spread out, barely tucked beneath her ear-length forelocks. She has a large cowlick shaped like a partial heart that at times will change shape to reflect her mood.
Normally she wears the Misono Academy Uniform as her casual outfit. It is composed of a white collared shirt with dark brown and white folded sleeve cuffs and a single line of orange around the hem. This is paired with an orange pleat miniskirt, a crimson tie, white stockings, and a pair of blue and white shoes. She wears a crimson wristband to match the long, flowing ribbon tied around her right wrist.
An energetic sweetie who entirely believes in the power of love. She is as chipper as she is selfless and innocent, and with a romanticized mindset she is said to love everyone and everything and has a contagious smile. She only seeks to make others happy and is always ready to lend a hand and easily supporting those she cares about, such as Saki; even if she doesn't entirely reciprocate.
As passionate as she is, Heart can become stubborn whenever frustrated or working towards a goal. She is also known for being clumsy and rushes head-first into things without thinking. Her kindness and desire to help others also can come off as her being nosy or rude, but she remains unaware of this. However, it has been suggested that Heart is smarter than she lets on.
After being sought out by the Ministry of Elemental Affairs, Heart sets out to investigate the strange goings-on above the Tokyo Skies.

One love punch, coming right up!

- Heart appears as a DLC guest character in Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel along with Homura from the Senran Kagura series.
- By coloring or appearance, some palette swaps make her resemble:
- Mikoto Misaka and Accelerator from the A Certain Magical... franchise
- Yukiko Amagi from Persona 4
- Sanae Nagatsuki from Shinrakulka Musume
- Minori Kushieda from ToraDora
