She is no longer dating Garrick.
Explanation of Senshi Powers: History
Imagine a few centuries into the future, in a world much like this one, but still different. A bright young man uses his talent with machines to go into the weapon R&D profession. The crazy technomagician, who was several centuries old, whom he met months later, was named Furu. The two hit upon a theoretical idea: artificial sailor senshi. Not freaks and monsters like the kind Galaxia produced, but the act of actually transforming a starseed into something similar to a Sailor Crystal, if not exactly like it. The two worked out the method for it and tested it—not on humans, but in a variety of venues. It was never supposed to actually be used when it was clear that the young man was unable to see anything but a future where artificial sailor senshi ruled the battlefield. His mentor bailed, taking all the plans and experiment results with him, or so he thought.
In Future Furu 2.0's words:
The point is, my student has been working on creating artificial sailor senshi using infants. The two that showed up earlier were the first two models. When I found out about it, I wrecked the facility he was using and took the third infant. They're strings of words and concepts without meaning pulled from the psyche of the person they're attached to. Anyway, I had to hide the third baby. The other models can feel her presence to an extent, so I gave her to a good family here in the past. When I found out the bableeprd was actually experimenting with time travel to go get his perfect creation, I arranged things for Cardea to move here and become Furu's senshi. I knew if she got involved with him, she'd get involved with all of you. It was the safest option.
