EMBER RISING ARE AHEAD; CAUTION IS ADVISED.
|“||I was building a world where rabbits could survive. I was making order. I was making a way. All we had to do was bow our heads and bend our knees. That was the price of peace, the price of survival. But you! You and your agitators rose up and raised your heads. And so Morbin will come. He will take our raised heads and pile a stack of skulls so high it will blot out the sun. You don't understand, little doe, what you've done. But all these deaths are on your head.||”|
Prior to the events of The Green Ember, Garten was the ambassador of King Jupiter and helped create the peace of the Great Wood. He betrayed King Jupiter and caused the king's death.
At the end of the book when Smalls is held at Redeye Garlackson's mercy, Garten appears and is seen drawing The Green Ember out of Smalls' bag. After Picket kills Redeye Garlackson, Garten crawls away in a hasty retreat.
In the High BleaksEdit
Attack on Cloud MountainEdit
Garten works with Bleston to capture Emma to give her over to Morbin. Garten reveals that if he blows his whistle a bird will come to take him away and the wolf reserves will not attack. If the whistle is not blown then entire force will be released and Cloud Mountain will be utterly destroyed.
After Picket arrives and defeats Garten's forces, Garten makes a deal with Emma, and he is allowed to blow his whistle and leave from the seventh standing stone.
Garten is a grey rabbit who is said to look similar to his brothers, Wilfred and Whittle.
