Gargarensis is the main antagonist in the Fall of The Trident campaign of Age of Mythology. He is a cyclops and the descendant of the Greek God Poseidon. Gargarensis orchestrates an elaborate plan to release Kronos and become immortal. Gargarensis is aided by a Minotaur, Kamos, and Kemsyt, an Egyptian raider.
Like the Cyclops unit, Gargarensis has a powerful throwing ability. He is classified as a hero unit and is effective in combat against myth units. If Gargarensis is killed, he collapses and must be revived.
Gargarensis sends Kamos to provoke Atlantis by stealing a trident from a monument to Poseidon (the city's patron). Kamos steals the object but is pursued by Arkantos, Admiral of Atlantis. Arkantos retrieves the sacred object and goes to fight at Troy. Anticipating this, Gargarensis leads some bandits to Ioklos, a Greek port. After Troy has fallen, Arkantos and his ally, Ajax, a Greek prince, head to Ioklos to repair their ships. The duo learn what has happened and defeat the bandits.
Gargarensis imprisons Chiron, a centaur hero, and leads prisoners up a pass into cliffs. Ajax and Arkantos save Chiron and follow the bandit trail.
Here, Gargarensis is found opening a passage to Erebus. He tells Arkantos what he is doing and calls down lightning to kill Arkantos' soldiers. Gargarensis enters the underworld realm and attemps to unlock Tartarus and set Kronos free. He is defeated and flees, closing the passage into Erebus and blocking access to Greece. Gargarensis meets Kamos and they sail to Egypt.
Meanwhile, Kemsyt attempts to stop Amanra, a Nubian leader, from defeating himself and his Set worshippers. The three protaginists find a way into Egypt and aid Amanra. The heroes find a piece of
Osiris and then reuntie try to pieces of the god, bringing him back from the dead. Chiron meets Niordsir, a jarl sent to defeat Gargarensis by the valkyrie Reginleif. United by their common purpose, they retrieve Osiris' head from a tree. Amanra steals a piece from Kamos and Arkantos and Ajax trap Kamos and kill him, securing the fourth and final piece. Kemsyt attempts to prevent the resurrection of Osiris but the heroes reunite the pieces and summon Osiris. Kemsyt then flees Egypt with Gargarensis. The heroes realise that Gargarensis is heading to the Norselands.On the way, Arkantos and Ajax free Odysseus from Circe and bid him farewell. The villains meet with the trickster god, Loki (disguised as Skult) and enlist his help. The heroes find Reginleif and the dwarven brothers Brokk and Eitri. The dwarves forge Thor's hammer, Mjollnir, closing the third gate, however Chiron sacrifices himself so the others can flee Niffleheim. The heroes retreat into a town and fortify it, The villains besiege the heroes and are about to finish off Arkantos and his allies when Odysseus arrives with a huge army. Using Loki's magic, Kemsyt is disguised as Gargarensis and killed by Ajax.
Gargarensis heads for the fourth gate in Atlantis. He calls upon his father Poseidon to help him break Kronos out from underneath the Wonder in the heart of the city. Arkantos and the others evacuate Atlantis. Arkantos gains the Blessing of Zeus and strikes the statue down. It starts to crack and its trident falls impaling Gargarensis, who dies and vanishes into the ocean along with Atlantis.
