Occupation

Commander

Boscogn (ボスコーン Bosucōn?) is the commander of the Chuder Empire's forces and the Purple Rhino Knights; he is renowned as the most powerful Chuder soldier.

Appearance

Boscogn appears to be a veteran warrior, and is never without his armor or the company of his knights. Elaborately constructed, his set of silver armor juts outwards in spikes at the shoulders and elbows, giving him a grand and intimidating aura. Around his middle, a belt and buckle secure the armor in place. His physique is that of a sturdy, well-built man, and underneath his rhino like helm he has no hair or coarse facial features. Mostly covered, his purple coat is only visible as a collar around his neck. His weapon of choice is a bardiche. 

Personality

Boscogn follows authority; he prioritizes fulfilling the orders of his superiors above his own initiative, no matter how sound his tactics may be. While he demonstrates great skill as a warrior and tactician during the battle of Doldrey, he is out-ranked by Gennon and consequently does not command the battlefield according to his own strategy. He despises cowards such as Adon Coborlwitz who let their men fight and die for their sake. Instead, he displays bravery and valor on the battlefield, intuitively identifying the "Hundred Man Slayer" as Guts and fearlessly challenging him to battle.

Abilities and Skills

He was a powerful and well-known veteran warrior whose physical strength and skill were also recognized by Guts, who described fighting him as "worse than fighting a hundred men", although the swordsman was ultimately victorious. He was strong enough to bisect and kill multiple soldiers with a single strike of his bardiche.

Equipment

Boscogn's weapon of choice was a bardiche, which he wielded skillfully while being mounted.

History

Trivia

  • His death in the second Golden Age Arc film differs from that of the 1997 anime and the manga. In the former, Guts' sword never breaks during their duel. Consequently, Zodd never appears to aid the swordsman by throwing his own sword from atop a hill. Instead, Guts picks up a broken Band of the Hawk banner and uses it as a distraction with his off hand, decapitating Boscogn as well as his steed once the man lets his guard down.
