Count of Monte Cristo
“The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.”
Gender: ♂ Male.
Nickname The demon slayer
Guts has black hair fitted with constant, short pointy spikes already built from short hair itself. At the base of his hairline, he allows a few strands (to take on the role as bangs) to hang just above his forehead. He wears bandages over his right hand (a style he has used since the beginning, most likely to assist in handling a sword) and wears a sleeveless white undershirt beneath it, allowing him to move his arms freely. On his pants there is also a set of armor featured in the groin area most likely for protective purposes.
Guts has a very tactical personality, when he is not enraged he will study his opponent thoroughly if given the opportunity. He has become a brilliant fighter because of this and ontop of his normal survival instincts, this advantage of his brain allows him to survive some of the most difficult battles. He is prone to using decoys and tricks to defeat his larger enemies, ontop of evasive maneuvers and hiding while looking for a weak spot. Guts can act like a wild animal with only the will to kill and survive...he will use anything that he can forge as a weapon and is not afraid to practically cover himself in blood to kill all of his enemies. Sometimes Guts can become very serious, thus showing his resolve and determination to kill anything in his way to achieve victory. Guts has somewhat of a bloodlust, getting an intense beastial satisfaction off of killing other people...almost to the degree that he could be considered somewhat psychotic. He will occasionally grin in such a manner that makes him appear to be a demon and loves the feeling of killing scum. He's always open for a challenge and does not mind litterly crushing somebody's body and internal organs. That being said, Guts has no morals on how he kills people and will easily slaughter anyone without giving it a second thought. When it comes to how he acts with other people, his personality is really picky. If it is someone he is friendly with, he'll act just like one of the guys (or at least attempt to) and be rowdy, reckless and sometimes a bit goofy. When it comes to people he has a close kinship to, he will smile and talk with them on an even level...very interested in sharing his own thoughts but keeping his secrets as well. Guts is, first and foremost, an incredibly resilient man. Despite the hardships he's been meant to suffer from his cursed birth, he has grown and changed considerably, gaining in both strength of body and mind. The brash stubbornness of his youth has melted into a somewhat "worldly" view on things and the people around him; he's come to realize over time what matters most to him and what he is willing to sacrifice to protect it - everything. He gives of himself relentlessly for the sake of those precious few whove managed to fight their ways into his heart despite the long voyage it took to get there; Guts is both incredibly loyal and incredibly selfless, though this was not always the case. It took unfathomable loss for him to finally understand what his priorities truly were.

History: In an incredible unusual and grotesque way of coming into this world, Guts was released from his mother's womb sometime after she was hung from the Hanging Tree in the land of iorn. Surviving the fall without any physical damage done to his body , Guts lay apparently dead until a local mercenary party led by Gambino arrived at the scene to discover the child. Gambino's lover Shisu quickly scoops up the newborn infant into her arms and cradles him to life, surprising everyone around. Of course, several of the party members make observations of a possible curse that would fall upon them for taking this forsaken child, which becomes a reality with Shisu's death at the hand of a terrible disease and ultimately Gambino's own undoing.
Because of the event of how Guts was born, this event foreshadows his entire life bloodstained and with many disturbing things to come his way. It could be that he was also born from such an unusual "death" that his desire to kill others in combat can be traced here.This would later come back to bite him has one day Gambino his father figure of sorts lost his legs in a battle and the things following it by with depression and anxiety Gambino was a shadow of his former self. One distant night when Guts was 13
years old and sleeping in his tent peacefully the moon was high and white and everything seemed alright until a huge sword came crashing down on his pillow. Guts barley made it out of alive and has he turned around to see who it was it was none other then Gambino himself.
With the memories of his wife coming back to him he started to curse at Guts and blame him for the death of his beloved wife because of the way he was born unto this world and a curse. Shocked by this and confused Guts froze in disbelief that the man who took care of him sense he could remember would try to kill him. Gambino swinged his sword one final time has Guts did what he only knew how to do and drew out his sword and slashed Gambino head off in a blinding rage.
Following the events afterwards Guts was dethrone and hunted down by samurais and ninjas alike, roaming around from battle field to battle field doing what he does best and kill kill kill.
