Galfa (Garfa in Japanese) is a mercenary of the French army who gets upset when Maria interferes with battles, since it means he doesn't get paid. He is assigned by Bernard and Guillaume into killing Maria if she keeps interfering. After killing Yvain, he loses his left arm by a straight cannonball during battle. He survives and fully gives his support to Bernard, receiving a metal arm and becomes the leader of the mercenary group.
Labeled a "snake" by several people throughout the course of the story. He is the type of man who would sell off a trinket, rob you back for it, and sell it for double. His morals are a complete foil to Joseph, and he openly shows his disdain for that. Pride and greed being his anchor in life, Galfa tries to adhere to his own code of ethics. A flicker of humanity showing when he let Joseph get close to his inner circle to reveal a rather vulnerable, lost man.
Galfa has shown to be quit hateful of Maria as she keeps ruining the wars which provide money for him. In the end he tries to kill Maria by pretending to rape her so she believes shes no longer a virgin. He didn't rape her however because he didn't want to stoop to such a low level it seems.
