Appearance

Personality

Adon has great pride In fighting and war, calling a battlefield sacred to men. He is arrogant and thinks very highly of his own skills. He is, however, quite cowardly when in the face of danger and prefers having his soldiers risk their lives for his sake.

He is sexist, stating that a woman on the battlefield 'desecrates it' and thinks the only reason why Casca is there is because she slept with Griffith. He also said that Casca would become his "captive", but more like a whore.

However after his fight with Guts he becomes more of a comic relief, and much more dishonorable, pretending to be dead and begging for mercy and attacking from behind. He also shows his cowardice and treachery on his final moments when he begs her for mercy, after she lets her guard down he shoots her with a small crossbow. This however isn't enough and he is defeated.

Abilities

Adon's resilience and extended speeches are legendary. He also possesses a wide array of ancient techniques supposedly passed down through generations of the Coborlwitz family, which helped him surviving several battles with the Band of the Hawk:

  • Rock-cutting Whirlwind: 140 years old technique.
  • The Movement Block (pretend to be dead): 700 years old technique.
  • Furious Attack Thunderclap Burst (coated with tranquilizer): 1000 years old crossbow technique.

His weapon of choice appears to be a ranseur or crossbow, with which he uses underhanded techniques like the ones above.

History

Trivia

  • Adon's death in the Manga differs only slightly from his death in the anime series. In the Manga Casca jumps overhead and slashes him horizontally across the face splitting his lips from cheek to cheek (possibly cutting into his skull as well). It's not a complete decapitation as his corpse can be shown with head still intact, though large wounds on each side of his mouth. In the anime Casca does the same movement but cuts above his nose (yet beneath the eyes) where a long red line from ear to ear bleeds before he screams and falls backwards. His head is not shown after this, it is likely the cut pierced through his skull completely and the upper portion was decapitated. In the movie Casca stabs him through the mouth with his own sword after her's breaks.
  • In the Berserk Film Trilogy he is seen not wearing his shark armour.
