Aye aye, sir!

Garo (Japanese: ガロ Garo) is a minor playable character appearing in TearRing Saga: Yutona Heroes War Chronicles. He is a pirate working on Holmes's ship. He used to work for Holmes's father, Vals.[1]

TearRing Saga: Yutona Heroes War Chronicles


Garo is one of the first playable characters available, and is also the only playable Pirate. He was sent to assist Runan by Holmes,[2] Runan's friend.

Garo has no real plot significance, though Julia approaches and asks him about the scar on his head. She recalls a man like him saving her from plunderers on Yr some fifteen years ago.[3] During that battle the man that saved her was struck in his head, and the wound would have left a scar like Garo's if he had survived the blow. Julia never knew if the man that saved her had survived, and she was curious to know if Garo was the one who saved her. Julia, who had fainted from a blow to the head during the fight, heard that the man worked for Vals, Holmes's father.[1] Garo confirms that he worked for Vals, but claims he wasn't on the mission to protect Yr, though he sounds unsure. It is left ambiguous if Garo was the man or not, though Julia appears to be sure that he is.

In one possible ending scene, Julia invites Garo to live with her on Yr.[4]

This character analysis section may not be accurate to every player's experience.

Garo is a competent damage-dealer at the start of the game, though, unfortunately, he falls behind once better axe-users become available. Garo is particularly at a disadvantage compared to other axe-users due to not being able to promote, and is thus never gets to benefit from promotion bonuses. Garo will also never increase his low movement stat without stat-boosters. Garo has a nice skill pool, however he learns the majority of his skills incredibly late.

Personality and character

Garo is a quiet man, and does as Holmes and Runan say without complaint. His tone changes significantly around women, who appear to make him very nervous. Around Julia, in particular, he stutters and often trails off, failing to finish his statements.[5]

Garo prefers drinks like liquor, instead of wine. He is somewhat disappointed when a celebration he is participating in has only wine.[6]

  1. 1.0 1.1 "Julia:I heard later that Admiral Vals's men had come to save us from the pirates... But I never found out what happened to the man who'd saved me. You worked for the Admiral, right? Do you know...?
    Garo: Sorry, I don't... I-I wasn't on that mission...
    " — Julia and Garo, TearRing Saga: Yutona Heroes War Chronicles
  2. "I'm more worried about you, Runan. Your knights are all greenhorns, 'cept for that old fossil Eugen... I know! I'll lend you one of my men. Garo! Get over here!" — Holmes, TearRing Saga: Yutona Heroes War Chronicles
  3. "About fifteen years ago, when most of the men were off doing mercenary work abroad, the island was attacked by pirates." — Julia to Garo, TearRing Saga: Yutona Heroes War Chronicles
  4. "Julia: Hey, Garo... Let's go to Yr together!
    Garo: Me...?
    Julia: Of course! Ever since I was little, I've had a dream... That I would find the man who rescued me and that we'd live together in Yr... Garo... Will you make my dream come true?
    Garo: I, uh... I-I mean...
    Holmes: Now look what you've done, Julia! You've turned him mute! I guess I'll have to say it for him... "Julia, I..."
    Garo: D-Don't you dare...!
    Holmes: Whoa, whoa, whoa! Relax, Garo! Don't swing your axe around like that! You could've taken my arm off!
    Shigen: Garo, huh? I guess I can approve of this...
    " — Julia asking Garo to live with her in and ending scene, TearRing Saga: Yutona Heroes War Chronicles
  5. "Garo: ......
    Julia: Not much for talking, are you? Or did I just surprise you?
    Garo: No... I just ain't used to talking with ladies...
    Julia: Oh...? Well, I think that's better than being a skirt-chaser. I'm Julia, by the way. Nice to meet you.
    Garo: Y-Yeah...
    " — Julia to Garo, TearRing Saga: Yutona Heroes War Chronicles
  6. "Holmes:' Hey there, Garo. Having fun?
    Garo: Not particularly, Captain. This wine's too high-class for my taste. Haven't you got any of that good stuff that makes you spit fire?
    Holmes: I don't know about liquor, but I do know a girl who spits fire whenever she talks...
