[100], Ever since he was six years of age,[23] Guts has wielded oversized swords, culminating in his incredible strength and master swordsmanship. Making his way to Primrose Hall, where Griffith is set to be in attendance, Guts rendezvouses first with Casca, and together, they overhear Griffith giving his interpretation of a true friend to Princess Charlotte: They [the Falcons] are... excellent troops. Instead, he mounts a Kushan horse with Casca in tow and sets out for Godot's abode, as Zodd whisks Griffith away.[72]. Deep within the depths of Qliphoth, Guts and company are able to find and locate Farnese and Casca as they are swarmed by trolls, as well free numerous Enoch women and children being held against their will. Heavily injured from his previous encounter, he is able to muster only enough strength to ward off most of the attacking knights, before being overwhelmed by their vice commander, Azan. Eventually, he is restrained by one of the demons biting down on his left arm, as a bared Casca is summoned by a reborn Griffith – rechristened Femto – who proceeds to rape her. In the process of healing Guts, Chitch expended all of her remaining petals and ceased to be; grateful for her aid, Guts decided to take Chitch's remains to a valley of other blooms like her after his escape. Soon after, the mist cloud of an apostle appears before the partygoers, introducing itself as Emperor Ganishka of Kushan, and making a formal declaration of war against the Holy See Alliance. He leaves behind a regressed Casca for two years to embark on his warpath against demonkind. After that, Guts decided to venture the free world until he was recruited by a band of mercenaries, The Band Of Hawks, where he was comfortable and was able to relax with them. Even after severing his arm and managing to free himself, the struggler is immediately pinned to the ground and forced to witness his lover's violation, all while the restraining demon slowly gouges his right eye.

The armor's primary function is to allow Guts to override the physiological mechanisms that prevent the human body from using enough force to damage itself. [29] Following the Eclipse, his strength and reflexes improve drastically even still, honed to their peak in his constant struggle against otherworldly creatures as one branded. In the midst of their escape, the two Falcons are surrounded by a swarm of Adon's troops. Curious of Farnese's true desire, and not wanting to lose Casca's primary caretaker, Guts endeavors to attend a wartime ball to meet with her. [83], After nearly a month, having slowly recovered from injuries sustained in his previous battles, Guts and his companions set up residence in a seaside cabin on their way to Vritannis.
