Udo is an average built boy with shaggy black hair and dark eyes which he wears oval shaped goggles over in place of glasses. Like his fellow warrior cadets, he wears the standard Marleyan soldier uniform consisting of a light jacket and pants, supply packs on the hip, suspender straps, a hard hat with a stripe around it, and tall combat boots. As an Eldian his uniform is different from that of the Marleyans in that the shirt collar has a small badge with the Eldian star instead of a small clip and the hat has a white stripe with the Eldian star on it instead of a pure black stripe. As is law in Marley, Udo also wears the Eldian armband as all his family and ancestors residing there do as well.
Udo is not the most secure soldier nor does he posses a very level head. Like his other warrior cadets he is trained to aid the wounded and cares enough to come to Falco's aid; but, his shaky nature sometimes causes him to neglect those he's treating. While he is not an excelling soldier, he posses some margin of skill to have survived for four years in the Marley Mid-East War.
During the Marleyan war with the Mid-East Allied Forces, Udo is present among 800+ other Eldians fighting on behalf of Marley. However, he and some of his friends such as Zofia, Gabi, and Falco are valued as warrior cadets with the potential to inherit the Armored Titan power. When Falco is brought back to the hiding trench by his brother Colt, Udo and the other warrior cadets rush to his aid and begin treating his injuries and bandaging his wounds. During this time, Udo begins to panic in fear of their military failing and wraps Falco's bandages too tightly causing Gabi to scold him. Falco wonders aloud why they are on the front lines as cadets and Gabi claims it is so they can be evaluated for their qualifications for the Armored Titan power. Udo and Zofia then boast about their superior grades above Gabi, who in turn expresses her resolve to kill the people of Paradis. As Udo and Zofia continue to treat him, Falco asks Gabi about the item she is fiddling with and she grins as she shows it to all of them.
When Gabi offers to take out the enemies anti-Titan artillery solo, Udo watches her execute her plan of attack and once she is successful in derailing the train, she begins to flee only to be shot at by one final surviving gunmen. This pushes Falco over the edge and he jumps out of the trench to try to save her as Udo and the other warriors watch in fear. However, an ally named Galliard transforms into a Titan and shields Gabi from gunfire while she and Falco collide as they both dive for the ditch. Udo and the others then watch as Galliard races off and kills the last gunmen.
When Falco returns to the trench with a wounded Mid-East soldier, Udo helps tend to the soldier's wounds. The soldier mutters something in a different language and Udo helps translating what he said.
After the battle, Udo is seen with the rest of the warrior cadets in Fort Slava's harbor, watching as surviving Mid-East soldiers are sent back to their home countries. Udo grows angry, believing that the soldiers' war stories will only serve to demonize Eldians to the rest of the world, and begins lashing out at inanimate objects around him until Reiner arrives. He is later seen at a party being held in Gabi's honor during the journey back to Marley.
Upon arriving at Liberio, Udo is reunited with his family. When the warriors and warrior cadets are summoned to their headquarters soon after returning, Udo complains at how little time they had to rest after the Fort Slava battle.
- Falco Grice - Falco and Udo are comrades as warrior cadets and candidates for the Armored Titan power. As such, they have grown closer in the four years they spent at war with the Mid-East Allied Forces and care for one another. When Falco returned from battle wounded and delirious, Udo treated his wounds to the best of his ability, despite wrapping his bandage too tight in the midst of a personal panic.
- Gabi - Gabi and Udo work closely together on the battlefield and show a liking towards one another. Gabi is kind to him as she is to all the other recruits, but they appeared to get in a small spat when Gabi yelled at him for panicking and wrapping Falco's bandage too tightly. However this does show that the two are close enough to exchange opinions without being angry.
- Zofia - As cadets, they work well together in the midst of war, but show very little interaction with one another. Zofia seems to find humor in Udo's blatant panic and sees him in a friendly yet foolish light, but the two are not unkind to one another.
