- "Ronso youth fearless. Go to battle with Guado!"
- —Garik Ronso
Garik is a young Ronso who survived the massacre of his race at the hands of Seymour Guado shortly before the defeat of Sin and the start of the Eternal Calm. Because of Seymour's actions, Garik seeks revenge on all the Guado and leads a rebellion, against the wishes of the new Ronso Elder, Kimahri.
Garik climbs Mt. Gagazet hoping to get guidance from the mountain. Yuna follows and tries to convince him that slaughtering the Guado will not change anything, and she will fight him if need be. Garik agrees that if Yuna can defeat him then he will rethink his plans.
The way the earlier conversations go will alter the fight that the Gullwings have with Garik at the Gagazet Prominence. Should the player decide not to interfere with the Ronso troubles, Yuna will learn in Chapter 5 that Garik has led the Ronso Youth to destroy the Guado hiding in the Macalania Woods. If the Gullwings manage to sway Garik, he goes to seek Kimahri's aid and the two will fight. Kimahri is victorious and explains to Garik that he must not seek Kimahri for answers, that every Ronso must find their own path in life.
