A timeline of events in the Garo Series.

Ancient History

The 1600s

  • With the rise of Christianity, the country of Spain's government mounted a witch hunt against all Makai Knights and Priests believing them to be agents of the Devil. The witch hunts led to the deaths of hundreds of Makai agents and the country of Spain became full of Horror activity, with their numbers infiltrating key aspects of the country's government. These Horrors were under the control of the evil Makai Priest Mendosa, who was conspiring to eradicate the Makai Order and all its bloodlines. He did so by manipulating King Fernando into believing they were making him ill through their dark magic, when in reality Mendosa was slowly poisoning him. Another tactic he used was sending fake Orders Documents to agents to trap them, resulting in all real contact with the Makai Senate from Valiante being completely cut off.
    • During one of these executions, the Makai Priestess Anna Luis was burned at the stake. During the process she was in labor and gave birth to her son, Leon. Her husband, German Luis, the Makai Knight Zoro, rescued their son from the flames and fled the country. Regrettably, German had to leave his wife behind to die as the King's soldiers were closing in on him.
  • 17 Years Later, German and his son return to Spain. Leon now holds the title and armor of Garo.

Before The One Who Shines in the Darkness
  • During a battle with a very powerful Horror, an unnamed bearer of the Garo Armor used up a great portion of its power to destroy the Horror's body and seal it away. This resulted in the armor being weakened and losing its radiant golden shine, turning jet black on parts of the armor. The Armor was then retired and taken to the Tower of Heroes until Makai Priests could find a way to restore its golden color.
