Here's a set of doodles of almost all of the Horrors from the GARO anime series, Honō no Kokuin (Garo: The Carved Seal of Flames), the only Horror that is not on here is Blood-Moon, because I just ran out of room on the page. But the others are here, so let me introduce you to them.
Hanamushi (ハナムシ): A Horror that possesses the body of a harlot (娼婦) that feeds on her host's clients before being slain by Germán.
Metaclim (メタクリム): A Horror that possesses the dead body of Guillermo (ギレルモ), a Makai Knight who was executed in a witch hunt. Metaclim serves Mendoza by posing as the captain of a squad the advisor sends out of Valiante to assassinate Germán and León.
Ezol (エゾル) A Horror that possesses the body of Father Nicholas (神父ニコラス).
Onbla (オンブラ) A Horror that possesses the body of Marcelo (マルセロ), an apprentice Makai Knight who was an apprentice to the Makai Priest Gael.
Banbora (バンボーラ) A wooden Horror that uses bladed arms as weapons and projects images to lower its opponents' guard. Possessing a woodcutter's doll that belongs to an outcast boy named Alois, Banbora takes advantage of the boy's grudge against the people of his village for murdering his father when he attempted to expose their village's dark secret of performing human sacrifices for good fortune. But Banbora's feedings convince the villagers that Alois's mother, an outsider named Auriela, is a witch and needs to be sacrificed. Once the Makai Knights learn of its existence, Banbora attempts to devour the mob sent to prepare Auriela for sacrifice before being slain by León.
Jemitre (ジェミトレ) A Horror that possesses the body of Count Romero (ロメロ伯).
Almar (アルマー Arumā, 6)A Horror that possesses the body of Jordi (ジョルディ), Santa Bard's resident blacksmith.
Despera (デスペラ) A Horror that possesses the body of Pepe (ペペ).
Moneta (モネータ) A Horror that possesses the body of Donato (ドナート), a thief who helped Irene steal Germán's clothing and money. After possessing Donato's body, Moneta kills the other two thieves before going after Irene and running into Germán as he manages to slay the Horror.
Anfel (アンフェル) A massive and powerful Horror, known as the Chimera of Orvien (オルビエンのキメラ).
Aboradura (アボラデュラ): An armored skeletal Horror that possesses the body of Lord Rolando (ロランド卿).
Convexo (コンベクスォ): A Horror that possesses the body of Count Albar Juste (アルバール・ジャステ伯).
Medicruz (メディクルス): A Horror that possesses the body of Michael (ミケル) who idolized a wandering masked physician named Fabian. Possessed by the Horror, Michael assumed his idol's identity while presenting himself in Santa Bard as a miracle physician. In Horror form, Michael has the ability to heal and augment himself using a variety of surgical tools in the drawers on his chest. While Michael nearly killed Germán, his insatiable need to heal and mend led to his downfall when the Makai Knight cuts Michael down while he was tending to his severe wounds.
Grand Magus (グランドマグス): A massive and incredibly dangerous serpentine Horror that burrows underground. Grand Magus destroys Lara's family's farmstead and slaughters the entire family before being cut down by Alfonso.
Mandura (マンドゥーラ): A plant Demon Echo Horror (魔響ホラー) and one of the Apostle Horrors (使徒ホラー) that constantly wails and moans while uses its vines to ensnare and whip victims. Mandura is cut down with the combined efforts of Alfonso as Gaia and León, who had become Garo once more.
Arabel (アラベル): A raven-like Horror that can transform into a high-speed aircraft-like form armed with guns and missiles. Years prior, Arabel possesses the body of Luciano Guzmán (ルシアーノ・グスマン), Emma Guzmán's husband and a Makai Alchemist by playing on the man's desire to learn how to save Horror-possessed individuals rather than slay them. From there, Arabel runs rampant for years while killing countless Makai Knights and innocent humans. Emma eventually tracks Arabel down and slays him on her own at her insistence, finally putting her husband to rest.
Resume (レジューム): A twin-headed Horror that was sealed in an egg-shaped Madō Tool by Mendoza for his use.
Gemellus (ゲメルス): A Horror that can clones of itself.
Anima (アニマ): Anima is an ancient giant Horror of great power that was sealed beneath the Valiante Kingdom by the Makai Order ages ago. Mendoza intends to revive Anima and obtain immortality and has been working towards this goal for years by conquering the Valiante Kingdom and slaughtering Makai practitioners. The Horrors that Mendoza already released on Valiante would serve as a food source for Anima, as the being would open a gate that would release countless Horrors from the Makai. The Watchdog Garm intends to allow Mendoza to carry out his plan, sending the remaining Makai Knights and Alchemists to Santa Bard via the Watchdog Center to thin out the Horrors' numbers despite the inevitable total destruction of Santa Bard and countless human deaths that would result from such a plan.
Octavia (オクタビア): Octavia is a woman serving Mendoza who knows the truth behind his witch hunt against the Makai Knights and Alchemists. She pledged her loyalty to Mendoza after losing faith in God for failing to save her parents and sister from a wolf pack and witnessing firsthand the power the "devil" wields, claiming that Mendoza's power is more substantial and thus worthy of worship and servitude. She becomes his servant under the condition that she is never to touch him. Even after Mendoza's assumed death, Octavia continues to serve at the palace as no one is aware of her involvement with her master's plans. When placed in a situation were her association with Mendoza would be exposed, cursing being left with no alternative, Octavia is forced to sacrifice her right leg to the summoned Horror Resume to avoid being discovered by Alfonso, Emma, and León. Later, fueled by her hatred of Makai Knights, Octavia uses the power of Mendoza's staff to become a Horror-like armored being called Demon Beast Armored Octavia (魔獣装甲オクタビア), willingly sacrificing her humanity for her master. The Demon Beast Armor encasing Octavia's body is fueled by her hatred and slowly eats away at her life force, eventually leading to her death at Emma's hands.
I've also done a pair of unnamed Horrors that Alfonso & Germán fought against in episode 13 of the show, one of which was a spider-like Horror with a naked female upper body and the second was a chariot-like Horror with a monstrous-head and a naked female body implied by a lance.
