We'll touch on this in the next podcast, so it doesn't really work as a question. But I think there's a pretty simple answer: SK did try to kill the Beherit Apostle, but his "sword hesitated," and he sensed that this might not be the right time to kill him.ApostleBob said:Here's a thought for Sunday's SK discussion. Kind of a long question:
In the conviction arc, Skull Knight says he's heading to Albion seeking an apostle, namely the Beherit Apostle, presumably to kill it. As mentioned in the previous pod cast, SK rarely makes much effort to hunt down individual apostles, and rather appears at junction points. So was he seeking to prevent the incarnation? And if so, can we explain how or why he failed to kill the Beherit Apostle on several occasions. SK is typically unparalleled in combat and Beherit apostle didn't seem to be that special as far as fighting is concerned. Do you think he intentionally let the ceremony occur? Perhaps to bring Femto onto the material plane where he'd theoretically be vulnerable?
Great to hear you're perusing the old ones. We hit some big topics really early on, and then we slowed down to ensure we didn't miss stuff.asic said:Going through all the podcasts again because why the hell not, the podcast is brilliant.
If that were the case, and his skeleton somehow magically fused with the armor, then what is Guts wearing now?Regarding the Skullknight armor and I am sure this has been discussed before but anyways, if Gaiseric did wear the Berserker armor for several hundreds of years is it not possible all his flesh was consumed but his skeleton stayed intact and the armor slowly sculpted his skeleton into the armor shape? Essentially fusing armor and bone together, so in a way it would be his bones/skeleton.
That doesn't make any sense no matter how you look at it...asic said:I just mean that when they finally did remove the Berserker armor it had changed his skeleton so much that it imitated the armor, it completely changed his bone structure to fit the armor better when he ran out of flesh, that would explain why there are hinges and bolts etc.
The armor doesn't reflect the "face" of its wearer but something more abstract, hence why it's taken on the form of the Beast of Darkness for Guts.asic said:You could argue the Berserker armor had the skull shape when Guts first put it on cause that was the last face which influenced it
Well if the armor is magical and can warp the skeleton frame to fit the armor surface that could make sense. Eventually the skeleton would have indentation of the armor layout. Like how play dough fills in crevasses or a mold.Aazealh said:That doesn't make any sense no matter how you look at it...
What you're proposing would require the bones to be expanded and crafted. But all we've seen the armor do is jab spikes into bones to keep them supporting the user's frame. It'd be a huge logical leap to assume there's some secondary/tertiary function of the armor to shape bones into armor pieces, and even overlapping plates, with spikes that would have extended beyond the armor... It doesn't really make a lot of sense.asic said:Well if the armor is magical and can warp the skeleton frame to fit the armor surface that could make sense.

Yeah I was simply bored at work and no one else to talk Berserk with while listening to the podcast. I miss the chat room.Walter said:I understand you're merely entertaining an idle notion
I'll see myself out thank youAazealh said:
