The precise nature of the Gauna and their motivations for assaulting mankind are unknown. A Gauna is made up of a virtually indestructible core shielded by a dense coating of flexible tissue known as the “placenta” at any particular time. The Gauna’s body deteriorates after the ena is spilled and the core is eliminated. The kabizashi’s tip is composed of a unique and poorly known substance that has the rare capacity to eliminate a Gauna’s core. After a method to artificially mass-produce the Kabizashi is established, the Gardes are also outfitted with rifles whose ammo has the same substance as the Kabizashi. The majority of the remaining human population is examined and conscripted as Garde pilots at an early age if they are competent in doing so.
