“No... I'm just not used to talking with women...”
Garo (ガロ Garo) is from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. He is a member of the Sea Lion Pirates, loyal to Holmes. He was sent by to aid Runan in his quest in Wellt. In the distant past, he saved a young Julia's life, and the scars on his head are a memento of that incident. He is not used to talking with women, as stated in the above quote.
Automatically from the start of Map 1.
Garo is very powerful when you get him, and for the first few battles is almost invaluable. However, as the game goes on, Garo's usefulness wanes and eventually vanishes. As he grows, Garo will end up with good Strength and Speed with average gains in Skill, making that stat a touch below average, and alright everything else, except movement, which is stuck at an abysmal 4 unless given a stat booster. Despite pirate being equivalent to a Tier 1 class, Garo does not promote. Garo has six above average skills, two of which he starts with. As the game progresses, Garo's role as a heavy-hitter will be replaced by other axe-users and the like. While powerful at base, he just can't compete due to his low movement, and low stat caps/lack of a promotion.
