|“||Amazing. What faith they have in each other. What an incredible bond they share. Even Kai, the ultimate lone wolf, is looking out for Tyson in his own way. Compared to them, our team...isn't a real team at all. We call ourselves friends, but what have I ever done to help Brooklyn? I've failed him, and us.||”|
Garland Siebald (ガーランド Garland) is a character in the Original Series, consisting of Beyblade: G-Revolution. He is a member of the BEGA League and the leader of Justice Five. His Bit-Beast and Beyblade is Apollon.
Garland is a slightly muscular young man with long silver hair tied in a ponytail and purple eyes. He has what appears to be a bindi on his forehead. He wears a sleeveless green top and black pants. A double brown belt separates the two. He wears these with long orange fingerless gloves with a black underside and black shoes.
Personality & Characteristics
He is proud of his Siebald family name and fights for it. Although Garland is proud of his family name, he can get carried away with their family principles, especially in his battle with Tyson.
He is arrogant at times due to his confidence and underestimates bladers such as Tyson.
Despite his arrogance, Garland does have a high regard for honor, even going so far as to respect Tyson for a good battle and stopping Crusher and Ming-Ming from fulfilling Boris's wish to battle Tyson before he faces Brooklyn.
In his room, Garland has tons of swords different in size hung on the walls, as well as training equipment and a crest which is not his family's.
His type of blading style is much like the style used in regular and kick boxing. He lets his opponent get worn out and he comes in for the kill. As seen in most of his battles, he usually finishes a regular battle with a round house kick.
His launcher is a metal tonfa, which is a short staff used in martial arts. Garland moves it back so as to give his launch more strength, then he moves it forward and makes his weapon do a 180 degrees rotation, in order to propel his blade forward and into the stadium.
He was so strong and aggressive during his Beyblade match against Tala of the Blitzkrieg Boys that he put him into the hospital. His means of winning was to not only hit his opponent's Beyblade, but to launch a physical martial arts attack on the blader themselves. Garland follows his family's principles of winning during his Beyblade match against Tyson, but he realizes with Tyson's help that he was acting according to his family's principles, and not his own. He eventually decides to battle for himself and his team instead of his family. Though he ends up losing, Garland is glad to have had a great battle against Tyson.
During Tyson's match against Brooklyn, he discovers the faith and bond the members of the G Revolutions share with one another, even Kai. He also realized that although BEGA works together, they aren't a true team like the G Revolutions. This all changes when he sees Crusher, Mystel and Ming-Ming actually supporting Brooklyn after Tyson showed him the true spirit of Beyblading. Garland then comes to the revelation that they are a team, and he's an amazing leader.
He also allowed Brooklyn to stay in his garden, and probably also at his house, after the last battle of the Justice 5.
Garland's Beyblade is Apollon. It is a yellow blade with a large attack ring called the Corona Saber, a ten wide weight disk with a final clutch base.
It is a blade made for burst attacks with Garland's initial motions, combined with Garland's knowledge of martial arts, making Garland & Apollon a very deadly duo.

- But I lost. No, you're right, Tyson. It was a great battle.
- Wait a minute. Now I get it. You knew he could end up this way all along, didn't you, Hiro?
- In English Dub of episode 36 of Beyblade G revolution scenes with Garland sent flying was cut; Some blood dripping from his mouth was also digitally removed. This led to the misunderstanding in the western viewers that Garland actually defeated Tala, but in the original Japanese dub it is clear that the match was a draw. When Garland used Radiant Thunder although he knocked out Tala but the collision caused Apollon to go stadium out and it is clear from time quote 15:38, trajectory of Apollon, the way it landed in hand of Garland and finally the expressions of Garland at this time. Hence, this match was a tie even though Garland physically dominated the match.
