  • Take down the Arbalists and Marksmen at the top of the area first. They will be showering the area with arrows throughout the entire fight.
  • Watch out for Galinn's wide and long-reaching attacks with his Great Sword.
  • Galinn will occasionally parry with his axe. Anticipate this throughout the entire fight.


An Island of Eels - Ending B.png
Players will be given a choice to either spare or kill Galinn. This will always result in Soma killing Galinn.

Soma will still pledge allegiance to your clan but the events that transpired leaves her with a heavy heart, unsure if she can trust anyone ever again.

This is considered as the Bad ending of the Song of Soma story arc.
