Bestiary EntryEdit

Garan possessed with the awesome power of Yama, King of Demons. This radical transformation of Garan's can only exist inside the boundary.



Yama is actually sanskrit for Yamaraja, which were various bosses in the first Shadow Hearts game.

Yama or Yamaraja was a demigod of death, and according to legend was the first man to die, while others say he was always a god of death. His name can be interpreted to define twin and some stories he is placed with a sister named Yami.
