“I can't be a bandit forever. I'm lookin' for a new line of work that'll put food on the table.”
—Garret in a support conversation with Larum in The Binding Blade.

Garret is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. He is an unwilling bandit with a heart of gold. When Lilina spoke to him, he gladly swapped sides over to the "good guys", as he hated bandit life.

He lived a normal life after the war.

Subjective: The following part of this article is based upon the editor's personal experiences and opinions, and therefore may not be applicable for all readers.

Garret is filler at best and ignorable at worst. His high HP, strength and skill will make him strike with strong accurate blows. His main issue is his low speed and weapon rank which limits his offenses. While C axes lets him use killer axes (which are one of the most accurate axes in the game), he is unable to use the Brave Axe or Armads for a while.

During Chapter 21, he can be somewhat useful. He can distract a large amount of enemy reinforcements by moving on to the peaks for a huge boost in avoid. This is helpful if the player is struggling with transporting units around the mountains and reinforcement zones in time.


Garret - Retired Outlaw (歴戦の狂戦士 Rekisen no kyō senshi, Veteran Berserker)
"Garret quit banditry and led the life of a farmer. He worked and tended his crops like an ordinary citizen and lived in peace. After the war, he never picked up his axe again."

Etymology Edit

Given how the Elibe games rely on Le Mort d'Arthur and Le Chanson de Roland for names, it is very likely that his name is a corruption of Gareth, a knight of the Round Table.


  • According to a Japanese gaming news website, Garret landed 61st place out of 80 in the character popularity poll for Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade.
