P.S. By the way, I ripped the page while masturbating to Slan in case you were wondering. ;D

This is actually an intresting question 'cause, my impresion of Guts (manga) is probably what along of people thought. "What an asshole". (but I liked him anyway)
But then I started to wonder "Well.. what makes him an asshole?". So of course I learned why happend, and I was like "ooohhh..." and I liked him even more.

the end.
Oh, and I liked Puck immediatly. I just couldn't tell what gender he was. ^^;

yeah, Guts was meant to sound like an asshole at first, I believe.  However, I don't know if Puck IS suppose to have  a Gender....no offense, but if 'he' did, there would be all sorts of different things happening whenever those female characters sees him...like trying to make tiny little trousers and forcing 'him' to wear them, or slap him around for indecency in public or something. ;D

It's never said in the manga.
Miura said that at some convention, a while ago.
Of course, he may have changed his mind since then, but...

Elves have no gender?!  How the hell do they procreate?!  Oh sure people will tell me a jack-ass for asking the question, but nobody has the answer.  The same thing with murmaids....ugh  ???

The only theory (I remember) on the origin of the elves is from the much maligned Gaiseric theory from the Japanese Boards.
Quote

The Elves are the materialization of feelings, just as the God of the Abyss is. They're just the "opposite" of the Idea of Evil. They were created by men and symbolize their hopes and positive thoughts.

I like it, personally.  But does anyone else think they have a better idea?

Pretty basic idea. Its based on the whole 'origin' of religion. A religion or the GOD of a religion is given power through prayer, faith, and belief. So in the Berserk world, negative emotions outweight positive emotions (which if you ask me, is true in ANY universe, but...) This could have been why the elves 'left'. As for the origins? Ill agree (for now) with the whole 'elves came from humans positive hopes and dreams' idea. It makes sense and stays true to the basic flow of 'religious powers'.

I have another idea about the whole "Elves are manifestationd of the positive feelings" bit...

If Elves are the "other side" of the Idea... Why are they "here", in the real world? Shouldn't they be spiritual entities?

So, when did the Elves appear?
What if they appeared... 1000 years before Griffith was "reborn" as a being of flesh?
After all, the Skull Knight said that the "incarnation phenomenon" occurs once in a thousand years, and allows an entity that should be in the divine territories to obtain flesh... That doesn't mean that "entity" is necessarily a God Hand...

Speaking of elves, is it ever explained why Guts has pointed ears? Or is it just the way he was drawn?

Because Gutsí father is really Griffithís horse!! :o

Nah, they donít have any special meaning. A number of other characterís share the trait; Gambino, Donovin, Griffith and the Count (even when he was human) just for example.

Whoa whoa whoa. SO FAR, they don't appear to have any special meaning. It could most certainly be revealed as otherwise later.
