Garuda (ガルダ) is a playable character in Anarchy Reigns. Technically speaking, Garuda is a dead man. After being killed in action, his severed head was smuggled by fellow mercenary Durga to a cybernetics hospital. There, Garuda's memories were hastily copied onto a memory chip. For better or worse, the dead man was resurrected, his consciousness transferred into a mass-produced Gargoyle robot. Garuda's combat abilities are essentially identical to other AI-controlled Gargoyles, save for a pair of drill equipped cybernetic arms customized for close-quarters combat.
