Title: Secret Project Episode I: Characters
Post by: Walter on August 29, 2003, 07:41:48 PM
The first section of the "secret project" I've been working on for about a month or so now, is a revamped Characters section to replace the old FAQ's version.  All characters entries were re-scanned, re-Colored and re-written.  In the background you'll notice volume covers.  The sequence of characters follows the flow of the manga. Cool, eh?

I can't take all the credit though.  Griffith and Uriel helped out with several of the avatars and design choices.  Each of our styles differ, but not in extremes.  You can tell if you look close enough but they all look amazing so who really cares?

Feel free to comment or steal any of these new pictures for use as your avatar.

The Character Section (http://skullknight.net/characters)

Edit:
PS:A handful of the pictures are clickable to see larger versions.  These took 100x more time to color so please... at least glance at them =)

SW33T!!!!

I love the snake baron pic the most, the eyes on him were well done.

question though.
Why did you put "The Casca" for Casca's name? Shouldnt it just be Casca?

We are in only episode 1?
Sounds so sexy. :D
I especially like Puck's new pic, one of my favorites.

Good job, Walter.

That's the best and most in depth Berserk character page i've ever seen.
You might want to have clickable pics that also show the different forms of the characters (i.e. apostle human and beast form, Guts in his different armours, and Puck in his SD form)

Uriel is working on the Apostle forms one... I think.  But I am not showing all the armors of Guts.

Thank you... I guess. But please, if you're going to point out a typo or problem, do me the favor of actually pointing it out instead of making me slueth my way into the correction.

It took me a second, but what Smith is trying to say is that it's supposed to be Volume 25, not 26.

That... IS what you were trying to say, right Smith? If so, duely noted.

Your work is incrediblely well done.

I've noticed something though. In Luca profile, it is written her life changed when she met Erica(Casca). Isn't it Ellen ?

Also, but it is minor point, I would have liked to see the priest Guts uses against the Count, the archer Julius payed for Griffith's assassination as well as the shitheads who had to keep an eye over Foss' daughter (and her ? : / ), the man who's beaten by Silatt in the championship, the ugly guy beaten to death by Wild when commandship of that army is required, the Old medium in vol12 who prophethiced about Rickert and all, the first apostle Guts encounters after the Eclipse when he's at Godo's house, the demonic tree and the thieves later turned to forest guardians, the little boy used by Guts to kill some bees in the hangar, the mother of Serpico, the father of Farnese and Serpico, golems and master giant golem^^, the chief troll, the dark spirit summoned by Schierke in the cave, the apostles whose rushed by Guts, the one fought by Schiekre, Isidro and Serpico, those SupaGuts kills...

The list is long and you have obviously the right to tell me to go fuck, but I think it's always good when there are plenty characters for an encyclopédia(mostly for Millenium Falcon Arc which is quite small)

I think you're misunderstanding the point of the Encyclopedia.  It's just meant as a reference for major events, locations, characters and ideas. It is NOT intended as a Berserk Beastiary.

Guil
Windinu's there to explain the history behind the Inoku village prayers and as an example of a summoned spirit. Why should I include every summon spirit?

Short answer, she plays more of a role, and has more of a name. "God of poop root"  was the shadow creature's name. Or something similarly vague.  Windinu is an actual character name, which is one of the main rules behind a character entry.

Well I'm glad you got Schnoz in there.  I really though Miura was going to remove that chapter from the mangaka because that character, in a similiar sense to Idea in chapter 83, really gives away a lot of pivotal information.  :P

 Well, Guts starts dragging Puck around in volume 1, which takes place between the eclipse and Lost Children ( a 2 year gap).

Given everything thats happened since Lost Children, I'd say it makes up for however long it took to get to the Snake Baron's from Godo's.

My memory is a little fuzzy, and I don't have the manga in front of me, but was the kana for her name "eren" or "ere-n"?  If it's the latter, then I believe Luca called her "Elaine"... if not, ignore that, and let me know...

If nobody answers, I'll check this out over the weekend on my own.

I noticed in the "Golden Age" section of characters, Gambino, Shisu, and Casca have a "&nbsp" next to their name, when displayed in mozilla, due to there not being a space between them, and the non-breaking space in the code.

Also is Guts' foster mother Siss, or Shisu?  since you have one spelling in Characters, and the other in the timeline, I was just curious.

Firstly I'd like to say hello to the community. This is my first post here.

Secondly, the "Characters" section of your encyclopedia is by far my favourite... but still, there are some mistakes - it says here that Irvine "has no visible eyes". He has eyes, albeit pupilless ones, and they sure are visible. It's just that they are usually obscured by his hat. That is all :serpico:
