    Re: Caska's nationallity

    If the continent that Midland exists in is a fictional/similar version of Europe, then it is possible that Caska might be the Berserk version of middle-eastern descent. The village that she came from must have been close to Midland. Maybe their version of southern Spain/Northern Africa? I don't believe she is black due to her straight hair and facial features. So my best bet would be that she is of Kushan descent.

    Re: Caska's nationallity

    finally someone threw me a bone....thanx Aazholh

    well,close to Midland I agree...maybe an overlapping of Midland empire and the Kushan.to be honest,who's to say where Griffith was comin from when he happened upon her.
    we know he did have an affair with the Duldrey vicelord/duke/etc...so he may have very well been travelling through Kushan territories...

    plus,there is something about the Kushan prince that just screams to me...he is of some relation to Caska...but that is only my speculation.but,i think we can all agree that he will be joining the fellowship in the future...because we know he is no friend nor wants an alliance with Griffith/gods hand/demons

    Re: Caska's nationallity

    I actually never thought of her of being a different ethnicity than any other character in midland. I just figured it was fantasy so whatever goes. Kushan does seem plausible now that you mention it though

    not to stretch it....but pippen may also be kushan.the band of the hawk was predominately children/teens,maybe refugees/orphans from not only the midland kingdom but kushan also....

    Re: Caska's nationallity

    actually, i'm going back to my original thought. i don't think caska or pippen for that matter were anything other than regular midlanders. of course i don't have anything to support this-- i think the artist just happened to give them darker skin because he felt like it

    you sure she from midland?.........



    ---------- Post added at 06:07 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:00 PM ----------

    her brethren...and a bunch of pippen clones




    nah...seriously.her and the kushan prince look closer in ethnicity than...caska is to gats....who is relatively dark for a midlander

    most midlanders are blonds or dirty blond to brown hair....fair skin

    ---------- Post added at 06:15 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:07 PM ----------

    now that I think about it...gats and Griffith may be foreignors to both kingdoms

    gats size and jet black hair and Griffith's white hair

    Yeah, remember at Albion, she stuck out like a sore thumb. She is definitely of another ethnicity. However, I've always assumed that Pippin was just white, but a had a dark tan due to working in the sun or something to that nature.

    Well, that is why Berserk is so great - it's up to anyone's interpretation. It's only a story after all, nothing is set in stone and no one person is right about everything.

    i'm just trying to think outside the box....there is so much to explore and discuss within this almost 25yr old classic

    Re: Caska's nationality/ethnicity

    I don't think that Caska is supposed to be Kushian or a different ethniticy, i've always assumed that she is one of those manga character that are "darker", there should be a name for this thing (like there is the ganguro style for example), if you think about it in the manga there is a war ongoing with the Kushians and no one ever bothered Caska or even asked her about it, even when she was in the band of the hawk no one said anything and she went in the castle where the elites of the Midlands lived etc.

    Re: Caska's nationality/ethnicity

    she was part of a band of mecenaries...muchless the 2nd strongest until gats arrived...

    as far as the nobles...who would have opposed the members of the hawks after duldrey(kushan/chudar/etc)....not even the king

    caska is unlike any other midlander we've seen thus far...even the prostitution ring...no one even looked close to her

    i don't see why this is so far-fetched...the hawks were composed of juveniles....i'm sure a kushan or two fell thru the cracks,not counting caska

    Another Dark skin character Gerenal Bosech Wasn't kushian he was like tudor or something that is the nation north of midland I think.
    Griffith met Caska afar from midland this was when he was scouting all over for troops.
    In fact I think Guts as a young merc fought for the tudor whatever they are when they forced the band of the hawk to abandon where Guts killed that massive guy.
