Garon is an antagonistic figure in both routes of Fire Emblem Fates. However, the Garon present throughout the events of Fates is not the original. The original Garon was replaced by Anankos with a water Familiar, planted in Nohr to bring the country into conflict with Hoshido, spreading chaos and destruction.

Personality and character
During the story proper, Garon is a brutal and paranoid man, with a lust for power and control. He is blunt and does not tolerate insubordination. He is quick to order his children to step in and get the job done. Due to the severe extent of his possession by Anankos, Garon has little personality beyond his desire to burn the continent to the ground and his sadism, particularly towards Corrin. He shows a consistent and extreme lack of subtlety in his aims, even when his boasting causes his children to sabotage his plans.
In life, Garon was not as brutal of a man as he is now. Garon is described as having been a philanderer who had many lovers. He was never able to leave a woman he had relations with, and quickly amassed a large harem of concubines. In contrast to the concubines, who often jockeyed for power and outright murdered each other and their children, Garon was a loving father who enjoyed spending time playing and sparring with his children. The deaths of all of his biological children save four is attributed to be the cause of his radical shift in personality, although how much of this was genuine grief and how much was Anankos' influence on him is unclear.

- Behind the Voice Actors,
- "Elise: Xander once told me that Father used to be really different, but he didn't say more. So I was hoping you could tell me what kind of person Father was back then.
Leo: Hmm. Well, before Queen Arete passed away, I'd say he was a gentle father.
Elise: Gentle?! No way! I can't even imagine him like that.
Leo: I know. If I were you, I wouldn't believe it either. But I used to be fond of Father. He even gave me piggyback rides whenever I asked!
Elise: What?! I'm so jealous! He never treated me like that! What else?!
Leo: He was a courageous person. He'd even ride out to battle on the front lines. Obviously, I never saw him do so myself, but that's what I've been told. But I did see him spar. He was so strong... I couldn't help but believe the stories." — Elise and Leo in a support conversation, Fire Emblem Fates
