Garrote as it appears in Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers

Garrote or Galott (ガロット, Garotte)? is a demon appearing in the series.


The garrote is based on the garrote vil, a means of execution for capital punishment used for centuries in Spain until 1978 with the abolition of the death penalty. It was also widely employed in 17th and 18th century India as an assassination device, particularly by the Thuggee cult. A garrote can be made out of many different materials, including ropes, cable ties, fishing lines, nylon, and even guitar strings, telephone cord and piano wire. The Indian version of the garrote frequently incorporates a knot at the center intended to aid in crushing the larynx while applying pressure to the victim's back, usually by means of a foot or knee.



Devil Summoner: Soul HackersEdit

"An execution device that has become an evil spirit. Victims would be tied to a stake and a rope or iron collar was placed around their neck. The rope or collar was then tightened with a wheel. The tension of the rope would constrict the victims' necks to the point of asphyxiation. Using the iron collar, it would break their neck."
