Wherever Gramorr goes, he is followed by Banes, an evil black Panther… As for his master, Banes is a force to be reckoned with.
Gramorr and Banes are the supreme evil in LoliRock’s universe.
Banes is a creature that exudes dominance. He likes to follow Gramorr almost all the time. He is also intelligent that he can follow orders or rise to the occasion. He seems very observant of his surroundings. He can also act impatient when things don't go as they planned. Though he never speaks like a human, Gramorr talks to him most of the time like he is a trusted adviser or a genuine partner.
Banes looks like a black panther that is very largely built. His fur appears to be shadows with flames like edges.

Lastly, Banes is shown to be highly resistant to Crystal Magic as he can withstand powerful Convergence Spells such as Crystal Quinta.
Disguises and Transformations
He was first seen in the said episode when the Rocks heard a sound coming from the park. When they ran towards the lake where the sound was located, there was a kitten drowning and Iris tried to save it with Crystal Cranea. The three girls then aim to adopt the kitten, but Aunt Ellen doesn't trust them since she was hosting enough teenage girls and there was no room for a stray cat. Iris then told Ellen that the cat may be hurt, and Ellen later accepted it.
While Bogan was staying at home, Amaru quickly became jealous of the kitty due to all the attention it gets and decides to try to throw it off a lake with a trashcan. He then gets stopped by the Twins (Mephisto and Praxina), one of the two who hypnotized him with Amatere Notizia, erasing his entire memories and have the mentality to that of a dog.
While the girls were cuddling Bogan, he suddenly tried to steal one of the girls' powers and unexpectedly transformed to his true form: Banes. The drama ends with Banes himself being defeated by the powerful Crystal Quinta, forcing him to return back to Ephedia and reunite with Gramorr.
- Banes is the exact opposite and bears many similarities to Amaru, as both of them are being pets to their respective owners and both of them are intelligent animals. However, Amaru is on the path of good while Banes on the path of evil.
- "Bogan", means "adorable" in Ephedian.
- In real life, "bogan" is a derogatory slang word used by both Australians and New Zealanders to describe a person whose speech, clothing, attitude, and behavior exemplify values and behavior considered unrefined or unsophisticated.
- He is the only character so far to show resistance for the Crystal Quinta spell.
- In the finale of Season 2, as the princesses defeat Gramorr, Banes looks at Gramorr with disappointment, implying that Gramorr was actually Banes's minion, and Banes grew tired of Gramorr's failures.
- Later after the fight, deep beneath the temple, he found the half of Grammor's destroyed mask and gave it to Praxina, possibly planning to use her as his new minion.
