Thanks for this latest installment, y'all! I enjoyed it!  :ubik:

I thought it was neat that you brought up the special font that's used for the Beherit apostle. I like it a lot because it helps flesh out the character for me in a couple ways. It suggests how his voice would sound. It makes me think his voice would be soft, strange, and reedy. Also, the font makes me think of what he says about his own life: "I'm nobody, never having been anyone, known by none, buried in oblivion am I." The way the font is very thin and small is like how he sees himself. I don't even know if these were the intentions for making the font that way or not, but it's why I like it.

Anyway, Mozgus' bird disciple will now forever be known as "Birdo" to me. Love it! :ganishka:

Enjoyed the podcast as is always the case.  Thanks for making it happen!  The best part is where you guys discovered the new question to add to the Berserk quiz  :ganishka:

I was just kidding about adding a question to the quiz.  There was a struggle to remember some names : Pepe, Fouquet and Lucie.  I definitely couldn't remember, but it cracked me up a bit to hear you guys get stumped for a second.

Actually I'm pretty sure that question's already in the quiz.

Knights holding bridges are nothing new but Azan should be based on Benkei (his short stature is the biggest deviation from the "source"):
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benkei
You constantly see variations on the theme in Japanese media. Yangus from Dragon Quest VIII is a famous example. Azan will die standing upright. You heard it here first :carcus: .

No, it's more likely he's based on the Chevalier de Bayard, whose deeds played a major part in establishing the archetype of chivalry.

For reference, below is a famous depiction of his battle on the bridge of the Garigliano, which he is said to have defended alone against hundreds of enemy soldiers.
