Long ago, Garitta lost his wife to a drowning incident. Because of her death, Garitta went into a state of extreme lamentations, which caused him to lose over half of his memories regarding his wife.
Garitta was now an old man with a deeply wrinkled face and a white mustache. His backbone was extremely straight and his eyes had a glint. As a parting gift, he instructed Eugeo to chop down a branch from the «Gigas Cedar» that could be made into a sword if brought to his friend Sadore. Eugeo thanked him before the young former woodcutter and Kirito left for Centoria to save Alice.
