Borkoff is an Apostle with an armored hide and an impressive set of jaws that was responsible for taking Guts's left arm below the elbow during the Eclipse.


Borkoff resembles a large salamander with six legs, a club-like tail, and a body covered in thick dark scales. His true body protrudes from the back of his salamander body. He carries a lance and shield.


Golden Age Arc[]

Borkoff in the Eclipse.

Borkoff first appears during the ritualistic slaughter of the Band of the Falcon during the Eclipse ceremony. Borkoff snapped his jaws around Guts' left wrist to preventing him from reaching Casca as the other apostles gathered to ravage her until stopped by the emergence of Griffith as Femto. As Griffith began to rape Casca in front of him, Guts tried to break free of Borkoff's jaws by using Gaston's sword. Since the sword could not penetrate the apostle's hide, Guts chose to amputate his arm with the broken blade.

Millennium Falcon Arc[]

Borkoff against the Daka.

Borkoff is a member in the new Band of the Falcon in the demon lancer unit under Locus orders. Borkoff and the demon lancers later assault Wyndham Palace, easily breaking Kushan's lines. The apostle forces are confronted by a large number of Daka, Pishacha and Emperor Ganishka himself. Although they are rivals of the daka demon and the war elephants, they cannot stop Ganishka when he enters his own apostle form, easily killing much of the force. This situation is part of Griffith's plan, as he and Zodd break the roof of Charlotte's tower and free her from her captivity in the city while Ganishka is busy. Despite being largely dominated, Locus orders Borkoff to cross one of the palace walls using it as a battering ram while charging the Daka. After this, Borkoff is present in the next assault on Kushan in Vritannis, and in the final battle with Shiva.

Fantasia Arc[]

Borkoff is seen fighting in Pandemonium arena against an ogre in gladiatorial combat. While the ogre at first seemed to have the advantage, the apostle eventually killed the ogre and devoured it.


  • Like many members of the Demon Lancer Unit, Borkoff has a head on his lower back.
