Germán Luís
Portrayed By:

Germán Luis is León's father and a Makai Knight who holds the title of Zoro the Shadow Cutting Knight (絶影騎士・ゾロ Zetsuei Kishi Zoro). Germán had once called himself "Roberto" (ロベルト Roberuto).

Personality & CharacterEdit

Germán is a womanizer that displays an easy-going, somewhat cocky, suave personality. However, he is also something of a deadbeat, once begging his son to lend him money to pay for a prostitute who turned out to be the Horror they were tracking down. He regularly sleeps around with prostitutes and attempts to seduce women, defending the behavior by claiming he needs another son to one day inherit the Zoro title and armor as León already inherited the Garo armor from his mother. Despite his annoying antics and playboy mannerisms, he is actually very perceptive and bold, and will turn serious and properly get work done when the situation demands it. While he finds his son's bitter disposition irritating, often suffering physical abuse from the boy when his behavior as perceived as adding further insult to Anna's memory, he nonetheless tolerates it all out of love for León.

Skills & AbilitiesEdit

Tools & WeaponsEdit

  • Zoro Daggers

In battle, Germán wields two daggers that transform into curved short swords with hand guards in his armored form. These blades are attached to Zoro's arms with chains wound around reels on his wrists that can be extended or retracted. The swords can also either be combined into a large spade-like blade, or detached from the chains and combined at the hilts into a boomerang-like form.


Before León was born, Germán and his wife Anna were imprisoned and tried for witchcraft in a campaign to hunt down Makai practitioners in the Valiante Kingdom. Germán escaped from his cell too late to save Anna, only arriving in time to save their son as he was protected by Anna's magic. Germán raised the boy outside the kingdom, hunting Horrors and avoiding Valiante's military. Germán is later severely injured during the battle against Mendoza, but he is taken in by innkeeper Ximena Coronado, who tends to his wounds and offers him a bed. Germán is soon forced to leave Ximena when the Watchdog Garm orders him to start working with a previously thought dead Mendoza. It was only after Mendoza revealed his true intentions that he helped his son to stop him. Germán is eventually slain by a horde of Horrors and his soul is added to the crystal used to revive Anima. The only thing León is able to recover from his father is a single dagger. After the final battle with Mendoza, it is revealed that Ximena is pregnant with Germán's child Roberto, who León trains to one day inherit the Zoro title. Germán is brought back to life from Makai by Garm during the events of Garo: Divine Flame, existing in a Horror-like state that causes Horror-detecting tools to react to him and gives him limited time in the mortal realm before becoming a full-fledged Horror. Germán returns to Makai one more after Sir Venus is defeated.
