That face... Like you're in some kinda agony or somethin'!! Like you're the only one walkin' some path of profound sufferin' that no one understands!! Don't be so proud!!! I don't buy it. You ain't special. You can... never become Griffith.
– Corkus to Guts
Corkus (コルカス Korukasu?) was a member of the original Band of the Falcon who previously led a small band of thieves. He was killed during the Eclipse as a sacrifice.

Appearance Edit

Corkus was depicted as a brown eyed man, quite tall and thin. He had smooth black hair that came down to the base of his neck. Corkus wore a plain purple shirt under his grey armor along with a pair of brown trousers. He often fought with a short sword, but was also seen with a crossbow.

Personality Edit

Corkus was depicted as antagonistic towards Guts (oftentimes without provocation) and fiercely loyal to Griffith, though even he admitted that Guts was very valuable to the Falcons, as even he started to fear when Guts broke his sword in the battle with Boscogn. His hatred towards Guts was largely one-sided, as Guts didn't have a major problem with any insults or attempts at assault that may have come from Corkus and even seemed to value Corkus as a member of the Falcons. Corkus had expressed his hatred of Guts at its fullest when the latter decided to leave the Falcons, revealing that he despised Guts due to his supposed self-centered nature, acting as if he was the only one to bear any burden or pain in life.

The one instance in which he was not directly antagonistic towards Guts was when Guts felt guilty about leaving Griffith, leading to Corkus to reassure Guts that Griffith's imprisonment was not his fault.

Corkus usually appeared very cynical and world-weary, but was hinted at being a very idealistic man underneath. Judeau had stated that Corkus once tried to win something for himself, but failed and since then had been reveling in and arguing in favor of any new found glory and privileges that he obtained under Griffith in order to stave off those feelings of loss. Confronted with Guts' decision to leave the Falcons, Corkus claimed that he aimed his arrows at Guts' back in several battles, much to the bemusement of the rest of the group.

AbilitiesEdit

Despite his arrogant and boastful nature and unlike his more talented peers, Corkus had very little outstanding skills to speak of that made him stand out, though he was not completely hopeless in combat.
