Gard is the leader of Terra Geist, and is the successor of the fallen leader, Viper. Gard is an ambitious man, wanting to restore Terra Geist to power. He is ultimately left MIA, after confronting both the forces of Blue Unicorn and Rottiger.
After the Time-Space transmission incidents, Gard returns. He takes interest in the ZOS, and the impact it has on people and their surroundings. Throughout much of the game, he seeks to capture Juno Hera, his plan was to use unstable ZOS to control her and revive the Death Saurer.
His plot is eventually undermined when the combined protagonists rally their respective forces against him. Of particular note is Zeru Jupit, who possesses the only stable ZOS reaction (together with Pulse and the Blitz Tiger). This not only defeated Gard's Death Meteor, but also alleviated the negative ZOS reactions that had been triggered around the planet.
Like most other antagonists, Gard is a highly calculating, ambitious man. Gard is also manipulative, and sees humans as tools. He embraces the highly destructive nature of ZOS, using on both his own troops and captured members of other forces.
Ability as a Zoid pilot
Gard is most often seen piloting powerful Zoids, such as the Death Saurer. As such his actual abilities are difficult to gauge accurately. He is seen overloading these already fearsome Zoids, taking their combat prowess to new heights. One such example is the Death Meteor, combine with Juno and ZOS as a living control system, it is by far the most powerful single opponent in Zoids Legacy.
