Garan (伽藍 Garan?) was the leader of a gang of thieves that had been terrorizing the mountain region of Gohda territory, stealing from, and in some cases killing, the peasants.


Deciding that this had gone on long enough, Lord Gohda asked Shiunsai to send a ninja to eliminate Garan, and Shiunsai gave the task to Rikimaru, who had just become a full-fledged ninja.

Garan had retreated to his mountain hideout, where he was torturing a peasant woman for amusement. Just as Garan tried to kill his victim his strike was intercepted by Rikimaru, who assassinated him for his transgressions.


Garan was a human and possessed no magical powers. He was a moderately skilled fighter, but no match for a ninja. He was an adept knife thrower.

Backround Information and NotesEdit

  • Garan is notable as his death is the first of Rikimaru's assignments in service to Lord Gohda.
