The oldest of the Valuan Admirals, Gregorio (グレゴリオGuregorio in Japanese) has served in the Armada all his adult life.
Main Article: Auriga
Gregorio's ship, the Auriga, has a heavily reinforced bow with spikes, allowing Gregorio to ram enemy vessels when he has an opening.
According to Enrique, who treats and regards him as an uncle figure, Gregorio has been an Admiral since the reign of Enrique's father, whom the game never names or discusses in detail. Enrique was taught all he knew of the art of combat by Gregorio, and the old man certainly went well out of his way to cultivate the image that the prince had of him. Gregorio's weapons of choice were a lance encrusted with yellow moonstones and a spiked shield.
As an Admiral, Gregorio has a strong sense of honor and dignity, something the other Admirals painfully lack. His loyalty to the Empire is to the tenth power, even though he disapproves of the way his immediate superior, Lord Galcian, handles and commands the Armada. Gregorio's tactics center primarily on maintaining a tight defense until the opponent makes a mistake and lends him an opening. It is this tenacity and doggedness for defense that made Gregorio the Armada's best defensive tactician and earned him the nickname "Ironwall" by his peers.
When Enrique escapes from Valua with Vyse and crew aboard the Delphinus, Empress Teodora, Enrique's mother, orders Gregorio to hunt them down and bring Enrique home to "recover", since the Empress believes the Enrique had been "brainwashed by the Air Pirates." Gregorio cannot bear to fight against the young boy whom he helped raise and come to see as his own son, but ever the loyal Admiral accepts his orders and traces the Delphinus to Esperanza. In the ensuing battle, Gregorio loses, and begs Enrique to return. Enrique refuses, saying that Valua is "headed down a dark path," and that he will not return until the Valuan Armada realizes the errors of its ways. With tears in their eyes, both master and apprentice part.
Later in the game, when Galcian announces his plans to become the most powerful man on Arcadia, Gregorio realizes that Enrique was right and decides to act. When Galcian corners Vyse, Aika, Fina, and Enrique as they try to escape Dangral Island, Gregorio confronts Galcian, saying that he "will not stand by while [Galcian] destroys the world!" Throwing the four into the exit, Gregorio tells Enrique that the fate of Valua rests in his hands, then turns to face Galcian, vowing to die "defending my people against a tyrant!" In his duel with Galcian Gregorio does indeed die, but in making the ultimate sacrifice he succedes in stalling Galcian long enough to save Enrique's life. Gregorio's death traumatizes Enrique, to the point where he decides to return to Valua to save his people. After his death, his body is returned to Valua intact for burial, in a rare show of respect from Galcian himself.
