Garu is a female Werewolf who, like many other people, was originally drawn into the world of Arbatel by the magic of the Grimoire, where she, together with her friends Aluca and Vikk, became more or less voluntarily acuaintances of Ms Smith. She gives her debut in Chapter 78.

Later, after Arbatel released the consciousness of the absorbed people in Chapter 80, the three girls later encountered the Interspecies Exchange Coordinator again by coincidence in the onsen town in Chapter 84. After the three girls successfully stopped the Orc leader together, Smith suggested them to work with her, like the MON-Team. However, after witnessing a MON operation in Chapter 85, the three girls reject Ms Smith's offer and instead take jobs as bodyguards at the Black Lily Advanced Materials Laboratory because of the better pay, much to Smith's dismay.


Garu is a tall woman with fair skin and long, somewhat disheveled light hair. As a Werewolf, she has pointed wolf-like ears and her muscular arms and legs are covered in fur. She also has large breasts, sharp teeth and a long bushy wolf tail.

During Garu's stay in the Grimoire, her clothing consisted of the usual school uniform, consisting of a Seifuku with a plaid skirt. In Chapter 84, Garu wore a short white shirt and a short-sleeved black leather jacket. She also wears jeans, that have a few holes in the legs, as well as a black belt and black boots. In addition, she also wear a dog collar around her neck and bracers on her wrists.


Garu is a friendly, but also very temperamental person, to the point were Aluca jokingly refers to her as "little miss upset-all-the-time". Just like Vikk and Aluca, Garu also seems a bit insecure since all three decided to try to find jobs to show their boyfriends their abilities as adult working woman since they couldn't exactly go around all lovely-dovely with younger boyfriends who are high school students. The fact that she likes being with a younger boyfriend could also mean that Garu is a shotacon. Compared to Aluca and Vikk, Garu doesn't seem to be as talkative and usually limits herself to short answers.

Garu is very aware of her strength and, like Aluca and Vikk, she is ready to use force to stand in the way of criminals such as the Orc leader. In general, Garu seems to be a woman in action, although she can sometimes be rash, such as when in Chapter 85 she immediatelly prepared to confront the Minotaur dealer who was standing as guardian in front of the warehouse without thinking of a real plan beforehand. But in this regard, Garu is always willing to listen to others and exercise caution in situations that could prove too dangerous when Aluca warned her that there were a totall of six minotaurial Liminal trafficker dealer and that they all had guns.

Although Garu is willing to stand in the way of bad guys, she is still sceptical about whether she is cut out for a job that involves confronting armed criminals. Because of this, after wittnessing the work at the MON, Garu felt a lot of respect for what Ms Smith does, but in the end she rejected Smith's offer to work with her at the MON after Mr President offered her a job as a bodyguard at Black Lily Research Facility with better pay, less obvious danger and the opportunity for free time with her boyfriend. Garu also found the idea that she could do insane work for such low pay to be kidding.

Skills & Traits[]

Physical Traits[]

  • Werewolf Physiology:
    • Sense of Smell: As a Werewolf, Garu has an good sense of smell. As seen in Chapter 85, Garu can use her sense of smell to not only determine the gender of a person but also wether it is a Liminal, saying that a Alraune smells like sweet flowers.
    • Superhuman Strength: As a Werewolf, Garu is physically much stronger than a average human. This, in combination with her quick reflexes, allows her to beat up even massive opponents like the Orc leader with ease. In addition, Garu also claims in Chapter 85 that even a male Minotaur would not be a match for her.
    • Beast Form: Werebeasts are capable of transforming (voluntary or otherwise) into an animal form based on their species.
    • Full Moon: As with most liminal species, the full moon stimulates a werewolve's primal instincts and may render even individuals who are otherwise emotionally coherent during their transformations to become savage and difficult to restrain. It is advised to actively avoid encounters with werewolves during this time as the likely-hood of injury due to the wereeolve's unrestrained mind is severe.
    • Estrus Cycle: While presumably sexually receptive all year long, Werebeasts also go through recurring periods of increased sexual receptivity and fertility several times a year (known as an "estrus cycle"), much like their bestial counterparts.


Garu, alongside with her friends Aluca and Vikk came to Japan for a relaxing time doing some Interspecies Cultural Exchange. She was one of the numerous people whose consciousness was absorbed into the magical world of the Grimoire High School by Arbatel, although the exact circumstances of how this happened are unknown. Like everyone else, Garu was brainwashed by the enchanted school uniform and really believed that she was a student of Grimoire High School.


Make the acquaintance with Ms Smith[]


Aluca's, Garu's and Vikk's first (strange) acquaintance with Ms Smith in Arbatel's world.

During their time at Grimoire High School, Vikk, Aluca and Garu made, more or less voluntarily, the acquaintance of Kuroko Smith, whose consciousness was also been absorbed by Arbatel. Hypnotized by the magic of the Grimoire, Ms Smith established a rumour spy network which allowed her to collect information about all romantic relationships between the students. As a hobby, Smith then often told Vikk, Aluca and Garu of those relationships. The three listen to Smith out of politeness, although they found Smith to be pretty hyper and annoying and often wonders why Smith telling them about those things. Despite this exchange of informations, the four remained only acquaintances at this point, as Smith did not introduce herself to the three and also didn't ask them for their names.

Eventually all three of the girls found boyfriends at the school. However, after Arbatel released the consciousness of all absorbed people in Chapter 80, a new problem arose in this regard: in the Grimoire world, all absorbed people were "students", but in the real world Aluca, Vikk and Garu were full fledged adults, while all their boyfriends were actually real high high school students. Since the three couldn't exactly go around all lovey-dovey with younger boyfriends, they then tried to find jobs to show off their abilities as adult working women. However, this proved to be very difficult, as there are still too few jobs in Japan that are suitable for Liminal skills, so the three were unsuccessful.

Reunion with Ms Smith in Chapter 84[]


The three girls are initially shocked to see Ms Smith again.

Some time later, Aluca, Garu and Vikk visit the Hotel Okaya in the onsen town after hearing that there are job positions for Liminals there. However, when they arrived the hotel, the receptionist at the front desk tells them that they no longer accept job applications for part time positions since yesterday after getting to many, much to the dismay of the three girls. Desperate that they might have come for nothing, the three asks the receptionist if she don't has any other open spots, when they are suddenly approached by Ms Smith. As the coincidence would have it, Smith also booked an overnight stay at the hotel after her boss gave her a few days off, although Vikk, Aluca and Garu are briefly unpleasantly surprised and shocked to suddenly met her again.


Aluca, Garu and Vikk introduce themselves to Ms Smith.

Shortly aterwards, Ms Smith and the three girls enjoy an relaxing bath together in the hotel's onsen. Smith asks the girls if they haven't looked for jobs before, to which the tree say yes, but they adds that it feels like a waste that they came to the onsen and leaving without doing anything, since there are no job positions left. Smith wants to asking them something else before she realizes that she never intruduces herself to the three girls during her time at the Grimoire High School. The four then introduces themselves to each other in a short welcome round.

Smith notes that she hasn't seen the three of them since those school days and asks them what they did after all that. Garu dodges the question being grumpy, to which Smith asks her what's wrong and if she's upset after not finding a job. Aluca then agrees to explain it to Smith. It happens that all three of them found boyfriends at the school, with Aluca amusingly describing it as a miracle that not only the "nice girl Vikk" but also she herself and "little miss upset-all-the-time (to Garu's outrage) have found boyfriends.


Aluca tells Smith about the problems of the three girls with their younger boyfriends.

The problem, however, was that in the Grimoire world everyone was a "student", but in the real world Aluca, Garu and Vikk are full fledged adults while their boyfriends were actually real high school students. The three girls had to come to Japan for a relaxing time by doing some Interspecies cultural exchange, but now they couldn't exactly go around all lovey-dovey with younger boyfriends. With a deep sign, Aluca says that they decided to find jobs to show off their abilities as adult working women, but that they unforntunately haven't been able to find jobs at all.


Ms Smith's reaction to Garu's question.

Aluca says depressedly that it is hard enough to find work as a Liminal but that she, Garu and Vikk don't really have any special skills or qualifications either. Vikk adds to this explanation that's why they're all a little on edge like this. Smith shows understanding for the situation of the girls but when Garu asks her in return what kind of work she does, Ms Smith is taken aback by the question and stammers a few incoherent and nonsensical words, much to the confussion of the three girls.

Incident with the Orc leader[]


The three girls leave the Onsen with Ms Smith.

In the evening, Ms Smith and the three girls leave the onsen and go to the reception, where the three tells Smith that they will not stay in the hotel overnight. Aluca says to Smith that it seems that she has calmed down a lot compared to how she was in that high school and Garu adds that Smith was pretty hyper and annoying there back then. Vikk asks Smith if she found a boyfriend at the school, but Smith, embarrassed, asks the three to change the subject because she wants to forgot her experiences in Arbatel's world.

However, an unpleasant surprise awaits the four at the front desk of the reception in the form of an old acquaintance of Ms Smith, the Orc leader. The Orc asks the receptionist if he can work her in the onsen at the "mixed bath lifeguard", although his malicious grin makes it clear that he once again has perverted intentions. Instinctively, Ms Smith reaches for her gun, only to curse and remember that she doesn't have a gun, as she is off duty. The attempt of the two Orc employees of the Hotel Okaya also fails and he brutally beats them off.


Garu beats up the Orc leader.

However, Vikk, Aluca and Garu then work together as a team to stop the Orc leader. Vikk uses her control over electricity through her mind to turn off the lights in the hotel hallway, leading the Orc leader suddenly surrounded by darkness and he is unable to see. Aluca then uses her claws to injure the nose of the Orc in a surprising attack, impairing his sense of smell and making him completely unable to orientate himself in the dark. Garu gives the Orc then a good beating with her strength and quick reflexes. Vikk then turns the lights in the hotel back on as the Orc, defeated, collapsed unconscious at Garu's feet.


The three girls are confused when Ms Smith offers them to work with her.

The three girls congratulate each other on their performance, albeit in all modesty. Ms Smith look at the three for a moment, amazed and impressed by how perfectly they worked together as a team and mastered the situation without any problems. She asks Aluca, Vikk and Garu if they, since they looked for a job, might be interested in working with her, much to the confusion of the three women.

An unplanned "field trip"[]


Ms Smith picks up Garu, Aluca and Vikk in her car.

Early in the morning, Ms Smith drives into the parking lot in a somewhat old-fashioned black VW-Beetle, where Garu, Aluca and Vikk are already waiting for her. After looking at the car, Aluca says that it's a real motoring enthusiast car, although Smith explains to her that it's actually a hand-her-down car from her dad. Somewhat unsure, Vikk asks Smith if they will go to the MON headquarters, which Smith confirms, although Garu reminds her that they have not yet agreed to her offer to work with her at the MON. As the three girls get into the car, Ms Smith tells Garu that 's no problem since this visit is just like a little field trip and that they can make their decision afterwards.


The girls are shocked by Smith's crazy fast driving style.

However, Smith suddenly receives a phone call from Zombina who tells her that they need her help immediately and urgently. The next moment, Ms Smith races accross the street in the VW-Beetle at high speed. Completely shocked by his totally fast and careless driving (and the lack of seatbelts), Garu, Aluca and Vikk tell Ms Smith to drive more carefully, although Smith apologize to them and that they should just hand on for a bit. But the girls are not really reassured by this.

After Zombina explained on the phone how the MON successfully arrested all members of a Liminal traffiking syndicate, they also found out that today a trafficking deal should take place. And on top of that, it's an in-person deal, which means that the dealer take the victim directly to the swap location. But since the MON has now arrested all members of the syndicate, there is no one left who will show up for the deal, so the MON will have no idea what will happen to the victim or where the dealers will take her afterwards.

Since no one from the MON will make it to the swap location in time, they nedd Smith's help. Smith aggress, although she points out that she don't think she will be much of a help, since during the fact that she's ofd-duty, she is unarmed and has no gun. Fumbling for words, Zombina says that Smith could just by them some time or try to tail the dealer even without a weapon. When Zombina ends up the phone call, Smith calmly says that it's not like she doesn't have any weapons.


The three by Smith called "weapons".

Garu, Aluca and Vikk look at Ms Smith in shock for a moment before they realize that Ms Smith is referring to them by the "weapons" and are horrified by the idea of being involved in a situation with criminals and tell Ms Smith that they want out. However, Smith replies that this is just another "little bit of experience" and continues with the three girls to the place Zombina told her. Once there, Garu, Aluca and Vikk are all dizzy from the turbolent car ride, but Smith realizes that it will be difficult to find the dealer's hiding place because there are tons of warehouses and factories around there and Zombina only gives her data about the general location, not about the actual location.

The warehouse and the Minotaur trafficking dealers[]

After they calm down a bit, Aluca and Vikk ask Ms Smith how they should find the dealer's hideout, but suddenly Garu turns to Smith and asks if the trafficking victim is a plant-like Liminal like a Alraune or a Dryad. Ms Smith checks her phone for the pictures Zombina sent her of the victim, which states that the victim is a Alraune. Surprised, Smith asks Garu how she knew that, whereupon the Werewolf woman explains that she can smell flowers with her fine sense of smell and that a sweet smell is outta place somewhere like this. Smith asks Garu if she can lead them to the scent, whereupon the Werewolf determinedly goes to the place where she smell the Alraune smell.


The group spies out the dealer's hiding place behind the wall.

Garu leads the group to a large warehouse in front of which a huge Liminal man stands guard and the Werewolf woman assures them that the Alraune is in the warehouse. The group hides behind a low wall, wondering if the Liminal man, who is a Minotaur, is might be the seller. Ms Smith congratulates Garu, who reacts somewhat irritable to the confidential address "chan", but also wonders what they should do now. She considers whether she should beat the shit out of the man, claiming that even as a Minotaur he is no match for her. Before Garu can do anything, however, Aluca shouts a warning to her.

Aluca's good hearing

Aluca warns Garu of the danger.

The Vampire woman focuses her hearing on the noises coming from the warehouse and decuces that there are at least 5 other Minotaurs in there and that they are all armed with guns, to Garu's shock. Smith is surprised that Aluca could gather all that, although the Vampire woman dismisses this as nothing special since she can also hear ultrasonic waves with her ears. Unsure, Vikk points out that they can't do anything if the Minotaur have guns. Ms Smith thinks for a moment and then asks Vikk how much she can do with her electrical control power, much to Vikk's surprise.

At Ms Smith's idea, Vikk uses her electrical power control to hook Smith's phone and the loadspeaker in the warehouse so that Smith can talk to the Minotaurs on her cell phone and demands that they are all under arrest for illegal trafficking. At first the Minotaurs laugh at this obvious bluff, but one by one the television, the central overhead light and then the smartphone of the Minotaur leader suddenly explode. Ms Smith tells the Minotaurs that the MON has snipers that are cabale of hitting targets more than 2 km away and that no of them can go to escape. Intimidated by this, the Minotaur dealers surrender and are finally arrested by the MON. In reality, however, it was all a bluff by Smith: the electrical equipments were not destroyed by a sniper, but by Vikk using her electrical power control to overload them.

After the operation[]


Smith praises the girls for the successful operation.

After the Minotaur dealers are arrested, Aluca, Garu and Vikk are reluctantly impressed by how Ms Smith resolved the situation. However, Smith replies that she would never have been able to do this without the help of the three girls, highlighting Garu's sense of smell with which she track down the location of the dealers. Garu hesitantly asks if there is something like the today's operation, which Smith confirms, even tough their work is normally plain old office work like preparing documents or helping with local problems. However, Garu still hesitantly wonders whether she, Aluca and Vikk are cut out for this job.


The girls considers Ms Smith's offer...

Smith then gently explains to thee three girls that the job at MON is of course not easy because there are many emergencies and danger involved, but that's exactly why it's worth doing it. She adds that they help people in need and that's why she think it'an amazing job. She kindly tells Aluca, Garu and Vikk that if they think it's worth considering, she would welcome the three of them to work with her at MON. Garu, Aluca and Vikk then remain silent as they think about Ms Smith's words.

The decision of the girls[]


... but in the end they reject it and become bodyguards for the Black Lily Laboratory, much to Smith's dismay.

The next morning, however, Ms Smith is in for an unpleasant surprise when it turns out to her shock that Garu, Aluca and Vikk have instead taken jobs as bodyguards at the Black Lily Research Facility. Aluca apologetically explains to Smith that after talking to her, the three received a call from Mr President, who somehow found out that they were looking for a job. Ms Smith curses Mr President and accusingly tells the three girls that they can't just throw away her offer like that.


The three girls apologetically explain to Smith their reasons for declining her offer.

However, the three girls apologetically tell her that the Black Lily Laboratory pay them much better and that they have the feeling that if they work at MON they would no longer have any free time to hang out with their boyfriends. In desperation, Smith realizes that she hasn't good arguments with which she could convince the three girls. Garu, Aluca and Vikk assure Smith that they really respect the work she does at MON and that they loved to continue to learn from her example, although this is of no real consolation to Smith given her huge disappointment.


A gesture that says more than a thousand words.

As a depressed Smith is about to leave, she suddenly notices movements from one of the upper floors of the Black Lily Laboratory and when she looks up she sees Mr President standing at the window of his office and looking down at her. He waves goodbye to her mockingly, whereupon Ms Smith is frozen in shock as she realizes at this gesture that he partly just offered Garu, Aluca and Vikk the offer to work for him in order to get one over on her.

Zoological Classification[]

Main article: Werewolf

Werewolf (ワーウルフ , Wāurufu), also known as "Wolfmen" or "Wolf People", are a pseudohuman species of beings who are spoken in myth of possessing the ability to shapeshift between the form of a human and the form of a wolf.
While the image of the 'lone wolf' is popular, they actually prefer communal living in the form of packs. While most monster species are affected by the Full Moon, werewolves can prove even more trouble due to their pack social structure and their great physical strength.


  • In Chapter 85, Garu was irritated when Ms Smith addressed her as "Garu-chan". This is due to the fact that "chan" is a rather confidential salutation that someone only use to people who are very close to him, such as family members or very close friends, which was strange for Garu since she and Ms Smith don't actually know each other that well. This also reflects Ms Smith's relationship to Garu, Aluca and Vikk in general, as she was too matey towards them, which only resulted in her dismay and disappointment being even greater when the three girls rejected her offer to work with her.
