Fomhórach, Stalwart Guardian, is the name of a Faerie type enemy introduced in Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon.


An elite biped faerie that uses a large spear in their right hand, and sturdy shield their left. Skilled in reading an enemy's movement, they have won their way through many battles by blocking an incoming attack, making an opening, and answering with a swift jab of their spear. Because of their emphasis on defence, they are often called "gatekeepers" by other faeries, which is also likely related to why many of them are assigned guard duty around faerie fortresses.

Their shield is forged with a precious metal called orichalcum, and greatly surpasses the defensive abilities of shields used by common faeries. Due to this metal's scarcity, not many of these shields exist, making Fomhórach themselves quite rare. Most Fomhórach are veteran fighters who have been around since Avalon's feudal era.

Another reason for being called "gatekeepers" likely comes from their dedication to law and servitude. They show no hesitation to strike down swift justice on any resident of Avalon causing disorder, even if it were a fellow faerie.
