Garo: The Animation is set in the fictitious Valiante Kingdom (??????? Variante-koku), which resembles Spain during the Spanish Inquisition. After the king, under the influence of his advisor Mendoza, launches a witch hunt that endangers both Makai Knights and Makai Priests, a Makai Priestess named Anna is burned at the stake while giving birth to León Luis, who is spirited of by his Makai Knight father to be trained to inherit the title of Golden Knight Garo. Years later, after Valiante is now plagued with Horrors as Mendoza, revealed to be an excommunicated Makai Priest, uses them to assert his authority after usurping the throne, the king's son Prince Alfonso seeks out the assistance of Garo to reclaim the throne. The fully grown León returns to the land of his birth at this time to avenge his mother, both he and Alfonso meeting while learning they are in fact maternal cousins whose grandfather was the previous Garo. Though León was relived for the Garo title after Mendoza's assumed death for his conduct, Alfonso now contends with the surviving Horrors in his kingdom.
