So, to recap the timeline of events as perceived the world of the little ponies: Garret the Gryphon engages in study and conducts experiments, searching for the center of all magic. So, he casts a spell that will let him communicate with a being from any world that could set him on the path to find what he's looking for. But, when the spell is cast, he opens an escape route for Gralo as he flees from Nahmat. When Gralo passes through the gate, he sees Garret, and hides himself inside him. Nahmat comes through immediately afterward, and, unable to recognize Garret as anything more than a disguise adopted by Gralo, attacks.
The rest is history as you know it. Garret escapes from Nahmat, Garret seeks help from other Gryphons, Garret is turned away, Garret flees to Equestria, Garret tells his tale, unwillingly omitting the fact that before Nahmat came through, there was Gralo, who was then using Garret as his vessel until Nahmat went away.
Now, a moment of respectful silence for poor Garret.
