A Ronso warrior who lusts for revenge against the Guado. He plans to leave Gagazet and lead the other Ronso Youth into battle.Scan
During Chapters 1 and 2, the player answers the questions of Ronso on Mt. Gagazet. If the "right" answers are given, Garik will be weaker than normal and only have a single Ronso Youth. If the player gave them the "wrong" answers, Garik will be stronger and have two Ronso Youths aiding him.
When Garik is in his strongest form, he will use Mighty Guard, and the Ronso Youth will drain the party's MP. The player should Dispel Mighty Guard's effects, and hit him with the party's strongest attacks. A good strategy is to concentrate on one enemy at a time, usually starting with the Ronso Youth. After both cronies are taken care of, the party can pummel Garik. A high-level Berserker is helpful.
If Garik is weaker, he won't use Mighty Guard and the Youths won't drain the party's MP. Garik's Defense is also weaker in this form.
Garik appears in the Youth League Tournament in Shinra's Fiend Arena, alongside two Ronso Youths. He is much stronger than he was during the Chapter 3 Mission, though the Ronso Youths are not.
