He most like want to take over the entire world and put it to eternal darkness, all those livings in his castle right now are sure ment to be sacrifised for an ritual of some sort, there is no other purpose for Griffith to have them at all.
Plus the women he always wanted is Casca.
I always thought that Griffith was asexual, and didn't really care for women.

Are we even sure he wishes to put the world in eternal darkness or whatever is that ? I dunno, but during the ceremony, the Idea of Evil told him " Do whatever you want "
Now Griffith realized his dream, good for him, are we sure he won't clash against the other God Hand ? That's not something that would surprise me to be honest at some point
I always took it the Idea of Evil....was acknowledging Griffith as a god.
The IoE I thought was telling Griffith he could in fact create his own destiny.
Maybe I read it wrong,but I thought the whole statement that the IoE was a part of Griffith...deep within his heart(not conscious like regular humans)and Griffith's desires were it's own....
In hind sight...if the IoE manipulated conscious of humans and blood relations...then in fact humans created Griffith.
Once learning that humans created also his suffering,i think his mental state is really beyond fixing.
I agree...he wants to create darkness,maybe making Falconia the only city/kingdom that light truly shines upon....herding the sacrifices and also getting the pleasure of being "savior".
I say this because,hate/fear/loneliness/despair all feed the IoE...only making Femto stronger...
I believe this is why he was so insistent that Guts watch the rape of Casca...because it would make guts sacrifice stronger.
His,dream....well,what else could he need or want...he is the king of gods already.

This is all provided that there is no God in the world of Berserk. If there is a positive God, unlike the 5 demons and the idea of evil, something like the idea of good, tho I am not sure if Miura really is a fan of dualism. If Guts somehow with magic, or with the help of magical creatures like those in the Elf kingdom can somehow get to the idea of good, or well the good god maybe he can have some power to rival Griffiths god abilities? So far Skull Knight seems like the person to mostly resemble a messenger of a positive god.
I was thinking the same. Maybe there is a god, or more like a goddess. A mother Goddess would be an interesting concept, something that Miura kinda implemented in Gigantomakhia. We know that the IoE is born from the bad feelings of humans, and that the world existed long before that, so if it turns out that the magical creatures are connected to a good god, then there is still hope for humanity. And that's why I think the merging of layers happened, to destroy all the magic in the world. A world without magic would be completely under the God hand's control.
Apostles seem like bad magic creatures, while elves good, I wonder how far the cut goes, like the sea god was a bad creature, some of those creature we saw are probably both of evil and good character, the dragons and so forth, but it would appear Griffith has a hand on some of the good side as well.
I don't think there is a good God in Berserk. Otherwise he would have done something long ago. Isn't it the reason why Guts is atheist? Farnese was a creepy fanatic when she was Christian and the other guy with his book as well(forgot his name). Faith is useless in Berserk world, the only thing that Griffith seemed to fear was Schierke's master and her mysterious powers.
PS: I am not criticizing the Christian religion, just giving my opinion based on what I read in Berserk-verse.
What about Pagan gods? Surely these must have existed before Gaiseric started his inquisition against the Pagans. We don't know yet how the world in Berserk was 1000 years ago, and even before, but if such gods existed, then they must have lost their power because people don't believe in them anymore. We saw that people who followed blindly the holy sees religion can't see elves for example. If these gods were there, then they could be in dormant state, or have been destroyed by the God Hand.I'm just saying it would be interesting to have another religion that the holy sees,
and it's most likely the case since the holy sees religion seems to have appeared around Gaiseric's time.
And yes Josef K, I think there is good and bad magic. The Hydra that we saw devouring unicorns could be bad, but then again there are creatures in Qlipoth that weren't bad. I think it's all relative, and in the end the only real bad ones are the God Hand, who are demons by definition, even though they were depicted as angels before.

to me there is a good being...just like the IoE...has to be....
the IoE told griffith he had a choice....he chose to become femto
he could easily become the savior of mankind....
here griffith ask if the IoE made him go thru everything he did....
but,the IoE responds...."it was established you would be here in the distant past"
who decided "it"....not IoE nor humans who influence IoE...must have been "god"
