Girardot was one
of the best tacticians and soldiers in the Grandall Empire. He was mostly
known for his cold-minded and dirty tactics. To Girardot, victory was the
only justice and he was not hesitant on using low tactics to achieve it.
He also thought it honored those fallen in battle.
Even when he was accused
of selling his soul, he stood firm with his will strong enough to overcome
his fate. But when he became the instructor of the Parousia Academy, self-doubt
started to develop in him. One by one his pupils marched to war, and not
a single one returned alive. When the young girl he considered a daughter
died as well, he recognized the crime he committed. He instructed them
how to die, and he was fostering death. Still, he faced reality and stood
firm. He vowed to protect the land and its people with his very soul until
In a short time he
joined with two of his former students, Abelia and a young talented cadet,
which is the player. He acted as a guide and followed his student's decisions,
amazed by his/her personality and actions. At the same time, he entered
in various discussions with Emperor Strife due to his strange and almost
suicidal orders and his hesitance to send back-up units.
A year after Dalkia's
fall, Girardot recognized the emperor's dictatorship and the oppression
of the empire, and rebelled against him and founded a rebel army of rebelled
knights and peasants. But Strife sent his own student against him. After two victories,
the Cadet faces Girardot in Chronicle 15 in his stronghold, and after his
defeat, Girardot tries to make the player understand what he's/she's falsely
fighting for, and what he/she should truly fight for: the people. But before
he can end his speech, Strife suddenly appears and stabs him with Soul
Edge, killing him instantly.
