I don’t know. But she reminds me of me. When I see her I see me when I joined ALO; she’s lost in the dark now, just like me. But I found something that started to bring me back. Partners. Comrades. Friends. But I haven’t yet come out of the dark. So I need to believe. I need to believe that she can come back from the dark. Because if not, I won’t be able to believe that I can come back.
~ Galant talking about Aki

Galant (real name unknown) is a player of Sword Art Online and New ALfheim Online. He is the main protagonist of Sword Art Online: Past of Ashes and Sword Art Online: New Aincrad

Appearance

Galant is of average height and weight for a male of his age. He has dark blonde hair, styled to his left, with a long lock pointing diagonally across his face and the rest to the same side, with an ahoge pointing out of the top right side of his head, and with blue eyes with a strong determinated gaze. He is well built and fit.

Real Life

Before SAO, Galant wore a dark blue jacket with black trim and a red sleeveless shirt beneath it. He wears dark gray pants, and a brown belt, alongside red and white shoes. He wears black fingerless gloves and is almost always seen carrying his shinai within a dark blue sheath. While training, he wears a dark blue hakama. On festival occasions, he's seen with a male yukata of the same color (thought he doesn't like using it).

After SAO, Galant's clothes resemble the ones he used in SAO, and he continues to wear the purple ribbon once worn by Sakura in real life. He wears a red sleeveless t-shirt with a black decal, beneath a blue hooded jacket with black details. He wears dark gray pants and brown shoes. He has also multiple scars across his body, result of being tortured with the pain absorber on level 0 in ALO. On formal occasions, he wears a black suit and white t-shirt.

Sword Art Online

As a low level player, he wore black t-shirt and an orange shoulder pad attached to belts slung across his chest that carries the sheath of his sword and shield on his back. He wears elbow-length brown gloves with an amber circle, and he wears dark gray pants with a brown boots and a belt that bears the symbol of the Royal Knights at the buckle.

He later obtained a blue sleeveless coat with a black trim and the symbol of the Royal Knights on his back. This coat was later replaced with Avalon's Coat, over a similar black t-shirt, with a red symbol on his left arm. He changed his pants to ones that were darker and with amber kneepads. The rest of his clothes remained the same. After the death of Guinevere, he carried Leavatein and Carnwennan on Guinevere's belt, to the left and right respectively.  

As a gladiator, he's seen without anything covering his torso. He wears dark gray pants with his boots, alongside his forearm protectors from his armor and the purple ribbon of his wife tied to his wrist. In the arena he uses an orange manica on his right arm, with forearm and leg protectors, and the same brown boots he normally uses. The purple ribbon remains tied to his wrist.

ALfheim Online

Galant was trapped in ALO, as one of Sugou's 300 test subjects for manipulating humans thoughts and emotions. Galant has longer hair, and wears only dark blue pants tied with a cord of cloth. He was tortured with the pain absorber on level 0, and afterwards his avatar would always bear multiple scars across his body. 

New ALfheim Online

Galant is one of the few users whose real life appearence is the same as his avatar in games. His avatar is the result of his SAO and ALO avatars merging into one.

His face is the same as SAO, but his gaze becomes much more cold, strong and determined, and his clothes change a bit in contrast to his SAO avatar. He also doesn't have pointy ears as do most other players in ALO. His avatar still bears scars from being trapped by Sugou. He continues to wear Avalon's coat, but this time over a sleeveless black shirt with a red decal. He wears orange armor on his right shoulder that carries a belt that's slung over his chest, which carries the sheath of his two swords. He continues to wear the forearm protectors of Aegis, and changed his former elbow length gloves, to shorter, fingerless ones. On his right arm, he carries a tattoo of a dragon's head, which shines red when he summons Stardust Dragon. Once he acquired Maximus Caliburn, it replaced Balmung Blade on his back. He's also sometimes seen using a dark brown hooded poncho, specially in cold areas.

He wears dark gray jeans with a brown belt, on which he carries his Rudis and Laevatain (afterwards, he left behind both weapons). On his back, inside his jacket, he carries multiple kunai knives. His boots are brown with an orange circle on his ankle. On his right boot, he carries Carnwennan as a secondary weapon. On his back, he can conjure two pairs of white fairy wings. On his right wrist, he continues to wear the purple ribbon worn by his deceased wife.

Afterwards, Galant changed his hairstyle, now styled to his right. He changed the design of his coat. He also added another belt across his torso, to start carring each Maximus Caliburn in separate scabbards. Both belts are united by a metal buckle with the symbol of the Royal Knights. Galant also changed his boots and added two kunai carriers to his thighs.

Personality

Galant has a very complex personality. He displays notable shifts in his personality as time passes and lives new experiences. However, a thing that never changes throughout his journey is his undying loyalty to his friends and his undying love for his girlfriend, Guinevere. These act as the major influence in Galant's decisions all the time. Galant sees friends as the most valuable thing a person can have, believing no one should ever have to be alone. He can be extremely determined to accomplish a goal, and can even come as stubborn when he does not listen to other players asking him to stop. He has a remarkably strong will, refusing to ever give up and he keeps on pushing forward until he is no longer able to do so. With those he considers friends, he is brotherly, protective, kind and overall a serious player.

Before SAO, Galant was rather arrogant, fearless and very confident of his abilities. He demonstrated showmanship by pacing his fights with a variety of attacks, demonstrating graphically gruesome executions, always laughing and roaring. With a love for battle, he revealed an excited grin whenever confronted. Though he pursued female companionship on a constant basis, he did not mistreat women and possesses a strong moral code. Yet, beyond his cockiness and boastful personality, there is an underlying sense of honor about him that creeps to the surface, as well as a strong sense of what friendship and loyalty means.

After he developed feelings for Sakura, his personality changed drastically. Galant is usually depicted as being serious, calm, and clear minded, even in very dangerous situations. After being chosen the leader of his guild, Galant saw as his duty to protect each of his friends from harm until the end of the game. He believed that the power from the bonds with his friends would give them the strength to overcome any situation and challenge. Contrary to many other players, he does not hold resentment against Kayaba for imprisoning them in the death-game.

The death of his guildmates at the hands of Laughing Coffin and his unfair sentence to prison was an enormous turning point for Galant. The combination of physical and emotional pain, exhaustion and the loss of his loved ones made him radically change. Since then, he has a tendency to keep a serious, somewhat stoic, expression most of the time. He cleared his head to have just two goals in mind: to hunt down and kill every last member of the The League of Darkness Knights and the clearing of Aincrad, finishing what he and his friends had started in SAO. His ambition to achieve both objectives drove him to become more hardcore, reckless, violent, and capable of doing almost anything to achieve this goals. From torture to working as mercenary for The Supreme Legion, to killing players. He was ruled by hate against his former first friend Mordread, the main responsible for the death of his friends. He also holds hatred towards Player Killers and, to some extent, VRMMOs. He also lost confidence in himself, blaming himself for leading his friends to their deaths, reason why he became a solo player so that he could not endanger anyone else. However, Galant didn't lose his sense of morality and his good will. He still sees friendship as something that should be treasured and recognizes there are things he will not do to achieve his vengeance.

He recognizes that once he accomplishes both objectives he has, he will be left without any purpose in his life, and often wonders what will he do with his future.

Ever since the first time he killed a player in SAO, Galant has been struggling against his own inner darkness, which festers as he continues to feel anger, hate, malice, pain and other negative emotions. It can manifest itself within Galant, a formless being with red eyes. The Darkness fully comes out when he's angered beyond his limit, and eyes turn crimson red. On several occasions, it took control over him, turning Galant into a feral, brutal, cruel and filled with bloodlust. With time, Galant has learned to control it and hid it deep inside of him. Since then, it has become one of his greatest weapons.

Ever since young, Galant dreamed of becoming a "Hero"; someone who will strive to protect and save everyone he can regardless of what happens to him. When he was not able to save any of his friends, he was tormented by his inability to save anyone. He saw at his responsibility as leader of his guild to protect his guild mates, and as result of being the only one who lived, he suffers from tremendous "survivor's guilt". Galant formerly did not believe in fate, but after the death of his friends, his belief of it increased to the point of absolute certainty. He finally accepted his fate, and embraced his new path, swearing vengeance for what had happened to his friends. However, he refuses to accept a fate that does not match his will.

Galant displays a sense of duality between his real name and his avatar name. He thinks that who he was died along the Royal Knights. When Mordread killed all his friends and his girlfriend, he also killed his identity. Therefore, he refers to himself as Galant and left his real life name behind, sometimes referring to his former self as "A man who no longer exists".

While usually serious, prim, and somewhat gloomy, he can occasionally show a dry and sarcastic sense of humor, generally around friends or comrades.

At first, Galant believed that facing the Legions during the Great Aincrad War was a stupid idea, and often recommended the members of the Knights of the Blood to stop fighting. However, after finding out that Hao was secretly working with The League of Darkness Knights, he betrayed the Legions and joined KoB to fight against them. After spending time with others, Galant began developing a bond with many new players and strengthening the bond he already had with others. As result, he softened and opened up to new people. He even remarks that he never expected to have new friends, as sees them as a new light in his life. He wants to protect these people and these bonds no matter what.

A remarkable new relationship he builds is one with Kirito. At first, they were slightly hostile to each other, but they had a mutual respect. Afterwards, they become quite close, often sharing conversations, giving each other council and Galant accompanies him as one of his closest allies. Kirito has seen leading potential in Galant, wanting him to be more than just another sword in his army, but Galant refuses since he states that he has already failed in being one.

Background

Galant was born on August 17th of 2007. He is the son of Kiritsugu (unknown surname), a Japanese man, and Norah Evans, an American woman. Galant is ethnically mixed. 

He attended school as every typical boy of his age. Among his classmates where his girlfriend, Guinevere and best friends: Lance, Mordread, Gawn, Dagonet, Bors, Percival, Tristan and Galahad. Thanks Galahad's father, who worked in Argus, Galant was almost an Alpha Tester, but then lost his chance to Yamato. Still, they all obtained the game Sword Art Online and the NerveGear. They logged in, and soon discovered that they could not log out. When Kayaba Akihiko revelead his true intentions in creating SAO, they created a guild called the "Royal Knights". He was voted leader and has the intentions of clearing the game alongside his friends.

Spoiler Alert! [show]
After the events of SAO, his imprisoning in ALO, and his few months of rehabilitation, Galant finished school and did almost nothing but play the game, searching for Mordread and any other members of his guild, The League of Darkness Knights. He worked as a solo player, and rarely make contacts unless necessary. Galant also obtained an AmuSphere, and attached a modified Virtual Reality Sensation Mega Amplifier (VRSMA), a deceived created to kill players on both in game and real life. Galant is one of the Legendary players of Aincrad, with both his name and deeds known and respected by the players of both SAO and New ALO.

Relationships

Galant/Relationships

Abilities

Galant's fighting style, as with most players of SAO, became better as he advanced in the game. His skills are in part a result of training with Kirei Kyosho, martial arts training, and his own natural skills. Galant has certain degree of training in Kyosho Style Traditional Martial Arts, but he eventually dropped it and began self-training. In battle, he favored a sword and shield, though he's not often seen using it because he moves with less speed, and he prefers speed and agility in battle.

After just a year imprisoned, Galant became one of the top fighters of his army; not just an extremely skilled swordsman, but also very good in hand-to-hand combat, thanks to lessons from Bors, and the fact that he acquired a Martial Arts Skill. He also developed great durability, and can face several enemies at the same time, without getting tired, nor stopped by the pain they cause him. This endurance even allowed him afford the pain of being tortured several times with pain absorber in level zero.

Following his gladiatorial training, Galant greatly develops his fighting abilities and eventually becomes the true Champion of Aincrad. Galant is skilled in multiple styles of combat and in the use of a multitude of weapons, being able to fight with sword and shield, single sword, sword and dagger, and later in ALO, dual swords. He is also adept in the use any weapon at his disposal, such as spears, daggers and hammers, and has become extremely proficient in unarmed combat. Galant also has a great determination that keeps him fighting until his very last breath, even if he loses some limbs, suffers extreme pain, or is left with barely any HP. Galant also became a Dragon Signer, and gained the ability to summon Stardust Dragon upon will. Still, he prefers to use his dragon as a last resort.

His signature attack is the sword skill Stardust Slasher, which consists in a projected sword slash. With this attack, Galant does not need to be right in front of his adversaries to attack. Due to the versatility of the attack, he has managed to create different version of this same attack, like for instance, Crescent Stardust Slasher. In ALO he created Original Sword Skills Stardust Explosion and Stardust Mirage, stronger versions of Stardust Slasher. Lastly, he also created the OSS Stardust Ryusei Ken, a Martial Arts OSS.

As a result of his extensive training and constant leveling up in both games, he is viewed as one of ALO top players, capable of fighting alone and defeating and/or killing skilled enemies or several players in groups. With his skills, he even match unique skill players, such as Ishi, Aki, and to some extent, Hao.  He could hold his own against Thanos, and later managed to fight him and three other members of his party at the same time for a brief while, but he was ultimately bested by them. Galant even proved himself to be evenly matched to Kirito.

In ALO, Galant is also a very skilled in flying. He quickly adapted to his new ability of flight. He is very fast while flying, and moves with swift speed and agile movements that further increase his skills with his weapons. Still, Galant doesn't favor flying, and is more adept on the ground, but if necessary he would fly.

Wrath-Galant

"Wrath Galant"

After the death of his friends and wife, Galant recieved Darkness within his heart, which grew as time went on. Because of this, Galant is capable of entering a sort of berserker rage state, also called "Wrath Galant". To enter this form, Galant must very angry, upset, or have a strong desire to kill. If these conditions are met, his brilliant blue eyes glow, change to a shining crimson red. This form greatly augments his strength and overall ability, making him capable of facing large groups of opponents, or others that are bigger and stronger than him without hesitation. Still, this form causes Galant to slowly lose himself, and is very hard to control. He cannot enter this form by personal will and can only change by experiencing a strong emotional trauma. Towards the end of SAO, Galant seems to have learned how to use it at will by blinking his eyes. Still, if he is enraged, the wrath state is activated without blinking. Once he does, he can kill players in game and real life as well, through the use of the VRSMA.

Tactical Ability

Altogether, Galant is a force to be reckoned with in the battlefield. His keen intellect and deadly skill combine to make him a true master of war. He's a skilled strategist and tactician. These traits, coupled with his bold tactics have provided invaluable leadership to their guild, giving them an unblemished record in battle that matches even Cerdic, and over time he proved to be better than him.
