~ Void

Void is the leader and oldest member of the God Hand and one of the main antagonists of the series Berserk.

Though the members of the God Hand are all nominally of equal standing, Void, being the eldest of them, acts as the de facto leader of the group. He is the one who brands the sacrifices made by tortured souls in order for them to become Apostles and achieve their dream. He is the nemesis of the Skull Knight, who he may have sacrificed himself in a long passed story similar to Guts and Griffith in the past.

Void's head features a large, exposed brain, eyes stitched shut and lips peeled back. His cloak and body seem to be distorted and he has the power to open up a sort of inter dimensional mirror portal at his own will. He also notably has six fingers on each hand.

He is the most philosophical God Hand member and is primarily concerned with analyzing and controlling the course of destiny.


  • His name could be inspired by John Boyd, a Science-Fiction author, or Destination: Void, a sci-fi novel by Frank Herbert.
  • In the first adaptation of the series, Void serves as the series narrator, introducing each episode and previewing the next.
