As most characters, Garrus is severely affected by the situation on Palaven, the Turian homeworld. Even the most powerful military force of Citadel space cannot repel the Reaper's push, and to devastating results. Millions burn in the first two days, including a giant fiery blaze where Garrus' birthplace once stood.
To secure a necessary alliance, the Turian Councillor divulges information of Palaven's Primarch being stuck on that planet's moon, Menae, where he's needed at a Turian summit to discuss the situation.

The story continues as a Turian-Krogan alliance is implemented to create a unilateral front against Reaper attacks.
