Even so, he struggles against fate itself to defeat the God hand and stop their vile evil from spreading. He wields a giant sword called the Dragonslayer "It was too big to be called a sword. Massive, thick, heavy, and far too rough. Indeed, it was a heap of raw iron."

Casca was a mercenary for the Band of the Hawk. She alongside Guts fought many battles and even participated in a 100 year old war. She is strong and a very capable fighter, being able to fight off multiple people at once, as well as a very respected leader when she led the Hawks for a year in their leader's absence. Unfortunately, the events that occured during the Eclipse changed her forever.

Skull Knight is an old warrior who wages battle against the Godhand. He is over 1000 years old and is incredibly realistic in his world views, acting very nihilistic at times too, and believes in causality and how everyone must follow their own fate.

He wields the Sword of Actuation, a weapon coated in molten behelits that can cut open time and space.
