* NonStandardCharacterDesign: As noted above, Gharsena has no reflections of light in her eyes, no doubt to emphasize just how bad she is.

Added DiffLines:

[[http://www.garanos.com/ Garanos]] is a fantasy webcomic by Alex Heberling. It follows LadyOfWar Garanos as she [[WalkingTheEarth walks the earth]] in search of her fiancée, who was kidnapped by mercenaries. Or at least, that's what she ''thinks'', as it becomes clear that she may be far more important than she knows...

''Garanos'' ended April 14th, 2010, after 18 chapters.

!!Contains examples of:
* ActionGirl
* AerithAndBob: There are fantastic names like Garanos and Senberan among more mundane names like Lucas. Possibly justified in that the last two are from an entirely different country and the author admits to making up the Caywien names.
* ArtEvolution: Started out in a straight-up {{Animesque}} style, then took a noticeable shift away from anime style between the first and second volumes.
* AuthorAppeal: Several characters have shown up in [[OperaGloves elbow-length gloves]] so far.
* BigBad: Gharsena
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:Zellner and the crew]]
* BlackEyes: Gharsena again. So far she seems to be the only character to have no light in their eyes.
* BodyHorror: Garanos' spikes/spider legs, which she can retract.
** [[spoiler: Unfortunately, Gharsena's are bigger...]]
* ChekhovsGun: Garanos' gold brooch.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: When The Harbinger is in control Garanos' eyes are green, while normally they're a grey/purple color.
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler:Gharsena versus Geilen, who gets tossed aside like a ragdoll]]
* DemonicPossession: Garanos has to fight this off during an early story arc. Unfortunately the remnants of it come back as a SuperpoweredEvilSide later on.
* TheDogBitesBack: [[spoiler:Geilen to Gharsena]], attempted and failed.
* DoggedNiceGuy: Styx
* DropWhatYouAreDoing: [[http://www.garanos.com/pages/page-38/ Here]], though it's easy to miss the first time.
* FemmeFatalons: Gharsena. Lots of villain tropes covered by this one.
* FightingFromTheInside
* GodWasMyCoPilot: [[spoiler:Maryoku]] was actually the host body of The Red Moth, the being that originally sealed away The Harbinger, through a FusionDance.
* [[spoiler:HoneyTrap]]: [[spoiler:Geilen implies that she got information out of Senberan this way]]
* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: Geilen, as well as being [[SonOfAWhore the daughter of one]]. She enjoys her job, and doesn't angst about it. She's also a KnifeNut. [[spoiler:Possibly subverted given that she's TheMole, but we don't know what she was like before Gharsena got to her]]
* {{Immortality}}: Type II. [[spoiler:The Red Moth allowed Maryoku to never age after she took it into her body]]
* ItIsDehumanizing: Gharsena tells her cronies to "bring it ([[spoiler:Ethreden]]) out" though at that point it really shouldn't surprise anyone to hear her refer to another person like that.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: [[spoiler:Ethreden most or less speaks these exact words to Garanos before he dies]]
* KissingDiscretionShot
* LadyOfWar: Garanos, who also averts the BreastPlate trope by wearing sensible combat gear
* LibationForTheDead: [[spoiler:On Ethreden's grave.]]
* [[spoiler:TheMole]]: [[spoiler:Geilen]]
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: As noted above, Gharsena has no reflections of light in her eyes, no doubt to emphasize just how bad she is.
* OfCorsetsSexy: Gharsena's costume. Notably, [[http://www.garanos.com/pages/page-276/ it's the first thing we see of her]] nearly 125 pages before she makes an actual on-panel appearance.
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:Gharsena, who has her own, [[http://www.garanos.com/pages/page-435/ bigger set of spider legs]]]]
* PeekABangs: Geilen gets these after [[spoiler:revealing her mole status]]
* PeopleOfHairColor: From what we've seen so far, the people Caywien tend to have dark hair, while the locals of Kaigan have lighter hair. Given that the people of Caywien appear to be at least partially based on the Welsh, who tend to have dark hair, it's possible that the others are supposed to be from mainland Europe. The author has said that Garanos' skin is slightly darker than the "Caucasian" characters in the story as well.
* PerfectlyArrangedMarriage: She was initially unhappy with her fiancée Ethreden, but eventually they started falling for each other for real.
* PietaPlagiarism: Near the end of the first volume [[http://www.garanos.com/pages/page-165/ here]].
* PowerTattoo: People from Caywien have one of these, which is connected to their magical affinity. Garanos' turns out to be related to a creature called "The Harbinger", and her connection to this is the driving force of the plot.
* RebelliousPrincess: [[spoiler:Garanos turns out to be the heir to Caywien]]
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler:[[TheMole Geilen]], who's been working reluctantly for [[BigBad Gharsena]] because Gharsena promised to cure her disease, learns that Gharsena infected her in the first place. She proceeds to attack Gharsena, who [[CurbStompBattle tosses her aside]] and accelerates the disease to the point of death.]]
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:Ethreden has been alive the whole time and in Gharsena's hands. Additionally, Geilen is TheMole.]]
* SecondLove: [[spoiler:Styx, for Garanos]]
* SicklyGreenGlow: The Harbinger
* StatuesqueStunner: Along with EvilIsSexy, Gharsena is shown to stand head and shoulders over almost everyone else in the cast.
* STDImmunity: ''Oh so'' averted by Geilen, who contracted an STD from a client that's slowly killing her, so she's looking for a cure. [[spoiler:It later turns out that Gharsena not only has the cure, but is the one who created the disease in the first place, though it's still spread sexually.]]
** And she hides it, making her a TyphoidMary.
* StockholmSyndrome: [[spoiler:It's implied that Ethreden may have developed this for Geilen, and the fact that the has the same disease as she does suggests that they may have had a relationship]]
* StoicSpectacles: Zellner, the captain of the ship the group travels on.
* TheVirus: [[spoiler:Geilen's disease was actually created by Gharsena, who uses it to control people after they die]]
* WhatTheHellTownspeople: Garanos gets this from the people of Kaigan, who distrust her from the start because she's an outsider.
* WhenSheSmiles: Garanos gets a few of these.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:Geilen.]]
