Count Julius

Count Julius

Count Julius, or Yurius in the 1997 dub, was brother to the King of Midland and was next in line as heir of the throne.

History

He was first seen watching the Band of the Hawks arrival to reinforce the outnumbered Midland forces against Chuder. Julius considered them common mercenaries executing an ambush.

His resentment of Griffith's rise to fame despite his common blood led to a failed assassination attempt during a royal hunt. The assassin's poison-laced crossbow bolt hit the Behelit that Griffith was wearing instead of killing him. The King concluded that the attack was meant for Princess Charlotte, who was accompanying Griffith. Griffith traced the poison back to Julius and arranged a counter-assassination by Guts which ended Julius' life, and earned the wrath of the Queen, Julius' secret lover. This counter-assassination would also claim the life of Julius' preteen son, Adonis, who was unintentionally killed by Guts after witnessing the murder of his father.

Trivia

  • In the English dub of the Berserk Golden Age films, his voice actor Jesse Corti has also done villains such as LeFou and Gongora.
