Garista has been performing experiments to create new blastia and blastia cores to control the aer. His experiments involved stealing cores from mages, including Rita Mordio, for reference. He planted his latest blastia in ruins near the town of Ceazontania, where the Niren Brigade was recently stationed. Eventually, the brigade goes to the ruins and destroys the blastia at the cost of Captain Niren Fedrok's life. After Niren's funeral, Garista is confronted by Yuri Lowell and Flynn Scifo, who brought back the core from the ruins as proof. As they go to arrest him, Garista mentions other experiments with some measure of success that included casualties as well. Enraged, Yuri and Flynn fight Garista, using Niren's blastia to deliver the killing blow.
