Eugeo was a kindhearted and considerate person who thought about the needs of others as well as his own. This was shown when he offered to share his food with Kirito, when they first met during Kirito's second dive, as he thought that Kirito must have not had anything to eat the whole day. This was also shown in the way how he was always considerate towards his valet, wanting to help her with her duties and trying to reduce her workload. He also tried his best to maintain a good relationship with his valet by having bonding sessions with her and even telling Kirito off for trying to talk his way out of the session.
Eugeo was initially a very compliant person who could not even think about breaking the rules. This was the result of both his Seal of the Right Eye, as well as his own personality. This aspect changed later on after witnessing how Raios and Humbert abused their authority as nobles to deceive and abuse his and Kirito's valets to get through to him. During the event, Eugeo managed to break his seal, which was a feat that no other Artificial Fluctlight, including those who were more prone to looking for loopholes in laws, had accomplished. Eugeo finally understood that laws were not absolute and that some things must be done, even if prohibited by law.
Eugeo was initially a person who lacked resolve as well. Even after his childhood friend was taken away, he did not have the resolve to go after her and save her, using the excuse of having a Sacred Task to never think seriously about leaving the village and spent six years cutting an unfellable tree instead. Only after meeting Kirito did Eugeo begin to take action, though only because he had his friend to guide him. Although after breaking his seal, Eugeo did start to show signs of strengthening his resolve, as he no longer doubted as much when asked whether he was ready to continue towards the cathedral.
Eugeo was described as a slender-looking boy with soft-looking flax color (light/ash brown) slightly wavy hair, green eyes and a cream color skin. Before getting accepted into the Sword Mastery Academy, he wore the same unbleached rough cotton or flax short-sleeved light blue tunic with irregular texture, hand-sewn threads on the cuffs and a V-shape cut on the chest, tied with a light brown cord, and trousers as Kirito.
When Eugeo joined the Academy, he wore a standard grey uniform. After becoming an Elite Swordsman-in-Training and being given the privilege to customize the color of his uniform, Eugeo chose to wear a blue uniform.
Upon escaping from the prison in the cathedral, Eugeo, along with Kirito, stumbled upon a room filled with weapons and armor, along with a set of clean clothing. Using the opportunity, Eugeo changed his torn and damaged Academy uniform into a blue outfit made from the highest quality materials.
After Eugeo was converted into an Integrity Knight, he temporarily wore an elegant bluish white armor with a cape.
Eugeo was a wood cutter of Rulid Village and Kirito's childhood best friend in the beginning of the Alicization arc, during Kirito's first dive when his memories of the real world were suppressed. He, along with Kirito, were given the «Sacred Task» of cutting down the «Gigas Cedar». After their friend Alice was taken away by Integrity Knight Deusolbert Synthesis Seven, Kirito seemed to have disappeared from the memories of the people of Rulid, including Eugeo, who was later shown to somehow still have faint memories of a person who tried to save Alice from the Integrity Knight, but did not remember who the person was. Upon Kirito's return to Underworld, in which he had no memory of his first dive, Eugeo was the first person Kirito (with Kazuto's memories) encountered upon awakening.
In the prologue, Eugeo has been Kirito's friend since childhood, and has recently received the Sacred Task of cutting the Gigas Cedar tree with Kirito. While having meal with Alice and Kirito, they decide to travel to a cave in the Mountain Range at the Edge, though Eugeo is reluctant to do so at first due to possibly breaking the rules, to acquire some ice, which they could use to make their meals last longer in the heat of the summer (the heat greatly decreases the Life of the food, making them go bad if not consumed quickly).
They find ice in the cave, along with the bones of a dragon, which was said to have been the guardian of the Human Empire from the forces of darkness, and the Blue Rose Sword, which Bercouli once tried to steal from the dragon. Because the sword is too heavy to lift and because they do not want to commit grave robbery (even though it is not against the Taboo Index), they decide to only take the ice that they came for and leave. Unfortunately, after filling their basket with ice, they realize that they cannot remember which cave they used to enter the cave (both Eugeo and Kirito point to different tunnels when Alice asks them which way did they come from).
They choose the cave on the nearest side to try first and, soon enough, they see the exit and Eugeo rushes towards it. However, it turns out that the cave lead them to the Dark Territory, instead of Rulid Village. At that moment, they see the battle between a Black Knight and an Integrity Knight, during which the Black Knight is pierced by an arrow from the Integrity Knight's bow and crash lands near the children. When Alice attempts to help the dying knight, Eugeo remains without reaction, until he sees Alice falling, he, along with Kirito, reflexively tries to grab Alice's clothes, but, unfortunately, only slices the air with his fingers and Alice touches the ground of the Dark Territory. Eugeo tries to comfort Alice by saying that she had only touched the ground and that she shouldn't be punished for it, but quickly turns to Kirito for support.
The next day, while cutting the Gigas Cedar with Kirito, they notice an Integrity Knight flying towards the village. After Kirito takes the axe off of Eugeo and starts running towards the village, Eugeo starts chasing after him. When they reach the village, they try to hide Alice from the Knight, when announces that he has come to take away Alice to take her away for interrogation and execution, but the Knight is able to easily locate Alice. Although Kirito encourages Eugeo to help him save Alice from the Integrity Knight, but Eugeo's doubts and the pain in his right eye prevent him from doing anything and they are soon dragged away by the villagers.
6 years later (in Underworld time), he is the first person Kirito encounters when he returns to Underworld and helps him find where to stay in the village. The next day, he shows Kirito the Blue Rose Sword he brought from the cave in the Mountain Range, but they are unable to use it efficiently (due to their Object Authority being too low to wield the sword properly and use Sword Skills with it). He helps Kirito look for Selka when she heads for the cave where Alice touched the ground of the Dark Territory and fights the Goblins in the cave, but is gravely injured. Kirito and Selka save his life by Selka using a Sacred Art to transfer Life from Kirito to him and, after two days, he returns to his task of cutting the Gigas Cedar. He finds it easier to wield the Dragon Bone Axe, so Kirito attempts to use his Sword skills with the Blue Rose Sword again, this time, successfully. Eugeo watches this in amazement and asks Kirito to teach him the Aincrad style. With Kirito's assistance he manages to master the use of the Horizontal Sword Skill and cut the Gigas Cedar in the process in just five days. On the festival organized to celebrate his feat, he reveals that he wants to be a swordsman and leave the village, but is challenged by Jink, the town guard, to a duel to decide who will leave the village. With Kirito's advice and his own experience, he easily defeats Jink using Slant, a Sword skill he learned on his own, and with Kirito they depart to Zakkaria.
Since leaving the village, Eugeo and Kirito have been working as stable-boys in the «Wolde Farm» on the west outskirts of Zakkaria for about 5 months, training and waiting for the tournament. On the 28th Day of the 8th Month, the day of the tournament, Kirito and him are about to enter the West gate of the town a when a horse goes wild and charges them but fortunately they are able to calm it down and discover the cause of its distress to be a «Large Marsh Horsefly». Kirito gives his suspicions on why one is so far from the nearest swamp and warns him to be wary of future incidents.
As the pair stop to get some food, Eugeo gets a bit nervous from seeing more people than he is used to in Rulid Village but Kirito tries to get him to loosen up. After signing up for the tournament, both of them enter the tournament restroom and after scouting quickly they are relieved that none of the participants are female. While they prepare Kirito comes up to him and warns him of one of the participants named Egome Zakkalight, whose personality is similar to Jink's.
Both Eugeo and Kirito were able to be in different blocks during the tournament and were somehow able to pass the preliminaries, win the tournament in their respective blocks, and both become guards. By next spring, each of them receive letters of recommendations to attend the Sword Mastery Academy. After they enter, he becomes the valet of the 3rd best swordsman in the academy, Gorgolosso Baltoh.
One and a half year has passed since the tournament. After practice, he talks with Kirito during dinner and later helps him with the plants he is growing, where he asks about what will Kirito do after recovering his memory. After Kirito asks for his sword, he reminds him that the next day, March 6, something important was going to happen.
The next day was a rest day, so they went to the city and visited Sadore's shop in the 7th district of North Centoria, Sadore gives Kirito the sword he crafted from the branch of the Gigas Cedar. After Kirito takes the sword, they return to the academy.
Eugeo later overheard some commotion and discovered that Kirito was going to face Uolo Levanteinn, the head Elite Swordsman-in-Training of the Academy, in a duel. After the duel, Eugeo, along with Gorgolosso, was invited to Sortiliena's room to celebrate Kirito's duel.
A few months later, Eugeo ranked as an Elite-Swordsman-in-Training in the Academy, and was about to dismiss Tieze, his valet, when he sees Kirito's valet, Ronye, waiting for her mentor to dismiss her, and offers her to request a change of her mentor, as he sees that Kirito isn't a good example. She declines and, at that moment, Kirito enters from the window with a bag of honey pies for them and dismisses their valets by telling them to share the pies with their roommates.
After Tieze and Ronye were dismissed, Eugeo reminded Kirito about an advanced Sacred Arts exam that they were going to have the next day and that Kirito had not studied for it yet. While Kirito studied, Eugeo decided to practice in the arena that was exclusive for elite swordsmen.
When Eugeo arrived at the arena, he found Raios and Humbert practicing. After a while of practice, they started mocking Eugeo about his lack of style and mockingly invited him to duel them, but to the nobles' surprise, Eugeo agreed to duel with Humbert, while Raios was left as the referee of the duel. Eugeo managed to make Humbert stumble by connecting two skills and repelling his attack. At this point, Raios stopped the duel before Eugeo was able to land the final strike.
Days later, Eugeo had a picnic with Kirito, Ronye and Tieze where the latter two told their mentors about the difficulties that their friend, Frenica Szeski, was having as Humbert's valet, since he was venting his anger of his duel with Eugeo being a draw on her. Eugeo immediately went with Kirito to talk with Raios and Humbert about the issue, but the two nobles played dumb and provoked Eugeo to mention how improper it was for Humbert to ask his valet to undress to her underwear. This was what the two nobles were waiting for, as Eugeo himself had undressed in front of his mentor many times for his mentor to inspect Eugeo's muscle development. After Raios and Humbert made fun of this, Kirito and Eugeo left with a supposed improvement achieved, as Humbert and Raios left them alone for awhile.
Two days later, the 22nd of the 5th month, was a stormy day and the time for Eugeo and Kirito's weekly sword maintenance in their rooms. As the four-thirty bell rang, they realized that Ronye and Tieze were late for their usual 4 o'clock room cleaning. Eugeo waited in the room while Kirito went out to look for them. But, moments later, Frenica knocked at the door and, to Eugeo's surprise, told him that Ronye and Tieze had gone to Raios and Humbert's room to complain about their actions, because they did not stop harassing her. Having a bad feeling, Eugeo rushed to the room of the nobles, but forgot to leave his sword. With no time to spare, he carried it along.
At Raios and Humbert's room, Eugeo found the two nobles drunk. They took him to one of their rooms where they had Ronye and Tieze bound to the bed, since the two wanted to make him watch as they raped the girls as "punishment" for offending them. Eugeo fought with his conscience and his inability to go against the Taboo Index, while the pain in his right eye increased as he watched the elites' actions. With Tieze's last scream before they were raped, Eugeo finally built up the willpower to go against the rules and attacked the nobles, unintentionally cutting Humbert's arm in the process, while his own right eye was blown away. After this attack, Raios decided to execute him for the crimes of interrupting the punishment and harming Humbert. Eugeo was unable to resist due to his state of shock, although at the last moment, he was saved by Kirito, who blocked the attack. Kirito then dueled with Raios and severed both of his arms, eventually leading to his death.
Eugeo and Kirito were thus branded murderers, and prepped for extraction by an Integrity Knight. However, to Eugeo's shock, the knight that arrived the next morning to retrieve them was none other than his childhood friend Alice, now known as Alice Synthesis Thirty. Eugeo approached her, but was swiftly attacked by Alice and warned not to do so again. Eugeo was disheartened to learn that Alice had lost all memories of her time together with him. Before Alice took Eugeo and Kirito away, Ronye and Tieze arrived just in time to bring them their swords, the Blue Rose Sword and Kirito's black sword, which Alice confiscated.
The two were brought to the Central Cathedral and locked in the dungeon, though they managed to break out thanks to Kirito's quick wit. They escaped to the courtyard, but were confronted by Eldrie Synthesis Thirty-One, with whom they had a heated battle. During the battle, Eugeo recalled that the knight was formerly known as Eldrie Woolsburg, the champion of the latest Four Empires Unity Tournament. As this information caused Eldrie to act strange, Kirito encouraged Eugeo to continue. Moments after Eugeo mentioned Eldrie's mother, they were attacked by another knight. Eugeo and Kirito dashed to avoid the arrows of the knight, until they eventually reached what appeared to be a dead end. But to their surprise, they were called by a girl from a door that they had not noticed before and the two ran into the passageway leading to the Great Library Room

While Kirito had a conversation with Cardinal and learnt about the Underworld and Administrator Quinella, Eugeo researched the tomes in the Great Library to learn more about his world's history. Now armed with their weapons' Armament Full Control Art incantations, Eugeo and Kirito left the Great Library and infiltrated the Central Cathedral, determined to reach the top and slay Administrator Quinella. Along the way, they defeated the Integrity Knights Deusolbert Synthesis Seven, Linel Synthesis Twenty-Eight, Fizel Synthesis Twenty-Nine and Fanatio Synthesis Two. On the 80th floor, they confronted Alice, but quickly realized that they were no match for her. In a desperate attempt, Eugeo unleashed his Armament Full Control Art to restrain Alice while Kirito unleashed his to whittle down her strength, but both Alice's and Kirito's weapons resonated to generate an incredible surge of energy that blew a huge hole in the Cathedral's supposedly invincible walls. Eugeo watched in horror as both Kirito and Alice were sucked out into the open. Before he could reach them, the wall self-repaired, leaving Eugeo alone in the Cloudtop Garden.
After being separated from Kirito and Alice, Eugeo climbed up the long staircase leading to the 90th floor. There, he found a large white door and entered through it, only to find that the room was a bathhouse. Spotting Bercouli and knowing that he was an enemy, Eugeo engaged him in duel after a chat. He attempted to counter Bercouli with the Sword Skill «Sonic Leap», but as he rushed forward, Bercouli activated the special ability of the Time Piercing Sword, resulted in Eugeo being seriously wounded. After he managed to stop the bleeding, Eugeo began to activate the Armament Full Control of the Blue Rose Sword. Bercouli noticed this, yet leisurely initiated a chat in order to allow Eugeo to finish chanting the special ability. The battle ensued once more with Eugeo stabbing the Blue Rose Sword into the marble floor, freezing the surroundings with ice and roses as a distraction for Bercouli, and then Eugeo rushed towards him.
Eugeo and Bercouli's blades then clashed, which resulted in what appeared to be Eugeo's blade being shattered. However, that was actually an icicle decoy, while the Blue Rose Sword was thrown into the bath before he charged. Eugeo then proceeded to use the Aincrad Skill «Meteor Break» to tackle Bercouli into the water. At that point, Eugeo retrieved his sword and proceeded to stab the bottom of the pool to continue freezing the area around him. Eugeo then activated the second stage of the Blue Rose Sword's Armament Full Control art that trapped both him and Bercouli in thick layers of ice that continuously drained their «Life». When both of them had barely any Life left, Chief Elder Chudelkin appeared and froze Bercouli, all the while mentioning that he had found a very useful pawn whilst looking at Eugeo. Eugeo then lost consciousness, calling out for Kirito and Alice.
Some time later, Eugeo found himself in a room, where he heard his mother's voice. When he asked for the whereabouts of his father and siblings, his mother's voice replied, saying that Eugeo had killed them. At that point, Eugeo noticed that his hands were bloody, and screamed, ending the nightmare. Realizing it was just a dream, he awoke to find Quinella asleep. Despite a voice telling him to get away, Eugeo stood completely still, as Quinella awoke. She began manipulating Eugeo's memories, convincing him that he had never been truly loved, and promising him that he would be loved. Eugeo submitted to Quinella's manipulation, allowing Quinella to access his Fluctlight to convert him into an Integrity Knight.
By the time he met with Kirito and Alice in the 99th floor of the Cathedral, Eugeo had been converted into an Integrity Knight. He no longer held any recollection regarding his two closest friends and merely regarded them as intruders and threats that must be dealt with. He expressed his thanks towards Kirito for bringing the Blue Rose Sword, but as Kirito attempted to hand it over, Eugeo merely made use of an incantation art to snatch it. He then prepared to duel with Kirito as he entered the stance for «Sonic Leap».
While battling with Kirito, Eugeo was able to regain his sense of self. He retreated to the top floor and tried to trick his way into assassinating Quinella, but failed. Having broken free from Eugeo's ice, Kirito and Alice reunited with him in Quinella's chambers, where the three of them along with Cardinal confronted Administrator Quinella and Chief Elder Chudelkin. While Alice handled Chudelkin's offensive, Eugeo distracted Chudelkin by firing ice arrows at Quinella, giving Kirito the opening to attack Chudelkin.
After Kirito struck down Chudelkin, Quinella summoned a powerful monster, called a sword golem, which instantly incapacitated Kirito and Alice. Eugeo then heard a voice telling him to stab his dagger into the elevating disk and noticed a small spider on Kirito's right shoulder. After Eugeo stabbed the dagger into the elevating disk, Cardinal used the dagger to create a passageway linking to the Great Library Room that she used to enter the chamber. Although Cardinal healed Kirito and Alice, Cardinal's arrival was part of Quinella's plan to trap her in the room. Finding out that the golem was actually made by transforming three hundred people into swords, thus she would not be able to kill the golem, Cardinal offered her life in exchange for the freedom of the three youths.
As Cardinal's life was being depleted from the Quinella's attack, Eugeo felt his lack of power and inability to protect the people he cared about. He realized that after they escape, Quinella would turn near half of the human population into sword golems. At that moment, Eugeo felt that it was his mission and duty to stop the Administrator and used all his power to find a way to stop her and save their world. In that instant, he realized that the best way to fight the sword golem was to fuse with his sword.
Eugeo immediately went to the dying Cardinal and convinced her to transform him into a being capable of fighting the sword golem. Cardinal expended the last of her energy to fuse him, the Blue Rose Sword and Alice's extracted memories, in the form of a crystal hidden in the decoration of the chamber's canopy, into a giant sentient sword. In this form, Eugeo easily destroyed the golem, but despite Kirito's warning not to act rashly, Eugeo turned towards Quinella and attempted to kill her. He failed, and the giant sentient sword was split in two, but not before managing to destroy Quinella's weapon and severing her entire right arm. As the sword morphed back into Eugeo, Kirito was horrified at the sight of his friend lying on the floor, his body bisected at the waist. Eugeo poured his dying soul into his broken sword, transforming it into the Red Rose Sword, which Kirito used, along with his black sword, to finally finish off Quinella. Eugeo and a heartbroken Kirito shared one last conversation, and as Kirito finally recalls his memories of Eugeo and Alice during his first dive into Underworld, Eugeo succumbed to his wounds and passed away in Kirito's arms.
As Eugeo's Fluctlight was prepped for deletion from the Underworld's database, he met the personified Alice Schuberg of the extracted memories that were held in Quinella's chambers, determined to follow Eugeo into the afterlife. The two of them express their blessing to Kirito and Alice Synthesis Thirty, and held hands as they passed on.
