* EvilWeapon: His CoolSword is [[MadeOfEvil made of Behelits]] and since Behelits are evil entities owned by Apostles to summon the Godhand, that might make it's properties pretty sinister.

A priest travelling in a wagon with his daughter Collete, Adolph sees Guts walking through the rain and offers him a ride.

A -> ''"I don't have much respect for that profession--killing other people for a living. Live by the sword, die by the sword."''

An old
priest travelling in a wagon with his daughter Collete, Adolph sees Guts walking through the rain and offers him a ride.

%%* ArbitrarySkepticism:
ride, disregarding Guts' statements that he's pursued by evil spirits. On the road he mentions that a nephew of his left home as soon as he could to enlist as a mercenary, and died five years ago on some battlefield. When the spirits come at night, both Adolph and Colette fall victim to evil powers that they didn't believe existed.

----
* ActualPacifist: As a priest, and someone who's lost a family member to war, he considers violence to be ignoble.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: When Guts tells Adolph that he's being chased by a legion of evil spirits, he laughs and says that Guts is safe with him because he's a priest and has God on his side. The appearance of a frightening incubus that night shocks him and he asks if Guts was being serious before, to which Guts says, "You're sayin' you believe in God, but not in evil spirits?"
* GoodShepherd: Deconstructed. He's a good priest who practices charity toward strangers and lives a holy life, but his faith cannot protect him from the evil spirits that follow Guts.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: If he hadn't insisted on taking in a weary traveler who was walking through the rain with evil spirits at his back, he an his daughter would still be alive.

-> ''"I beg of you, black swordsman, Deliver us from this demon!"''

Once the Count's doctor, Vargas saw how the Count's personality changed after acquiring the Behelit and was one of [[HeKnowsTooMuch the first to see his true, demonic form]]. Refusing to be a part of the Count's experiments, he tried to escape with his wife and two sons. They were captured and subjected to the Count's tortures. Vargas had parts of his body cut off and eaten including both legs below the knee, his nose, and the eye and flesh on the right side of his face. He was forced to watch the Count grotesquely devour his wife and sons. By taking a drug to fake his death, he escaped from the castle and managed to steal the Count's Behelit, though he was unable to discover its secrets. Hiding in constant fear, but motivated by seething hatred, he lives for the day when he will take his revenge.

Seven years later he encounters Guts and Puck and begs them to slay the Count, telling them everything he knows about the Count and the castle layout. Guts treats him with disgust and contempt from the start, seeing more of himself in Vargas than he cares to admit. For his part Vargas is willing to take Guts' abuse without complaints as long as he intends to kill the Count, and is unable to do anything when Guts rudely confiscates the Behelit for safe-keeping. Puck in contrast treats Vargas with pity and compassion, and Vargas in turn shows Puck his kind side. He is eventually captured and publicly beheaded by the Count in an attempt to lure Guts out of hiding, and shows up again [[spoiler:as a damned spirit to drag the Count into the Underworld]].

Adolph's kindhearted teenage daughter, who tries to make Guts comfortable once he's aboard
the Count's doctor, Vargas saw how the Count's personality changed after acquiring the Behelit wagon. She thinks Puck is adorable, and was seems to have a bit of a crush on Guts.

Added DiffLines:


* AdaptationDyeJob: Appears to have fair hair in the manga, which changes to brown in the '97 anime, and gets re-established as blonde in the 2016 anime.
* TheCutie: A youthful, innocent, and gentle character who arouses others' protective instincts.
* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: As soon as she's dead, a ghost possesses her corpse and uses her as a puppet to attack Guts.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Gets introduced and then killed off in the space of just one episode.
* KillTheCutie: She was such a nice girl, there was no way she'd make it through the episode alive.
* NiceGirl: Nothing but pure nice in her personality, as we see when she offers Guts some wine to warm him up, and puts a blanket over him as he drifts off to sleep.
* PrecociousCrush: Shows some signs of feeling attracted to Guts, such as her blushing and nervousness after she offers him a blanket.
* SlasherSmile: As soon as Guts sees her appear in the back of the wagon with a sword in one hand, her father's severed head in the other, and an evil smile on her face, he knows Colette isn't really Colette anymore.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In the 1997 anime she doesn't get killed on-screen, since she's introduced in the tavern and the part with the skeletons doesn't happen. Then in the 2016 version, it's back to getting killed for her.

* RefusedByTheCall: Guts does desperately need companions, and for her part Jill does bring out some good in him. However, he rejects her plea to take her with him away from her home life when she decides that he is a far better person to be around than the likes of the villagers and her father. It's for good reason that he does: Jill may have faced down Rosine, but she is still a child and following Guts would mean being subjected to the hell that follows him every waking moment.



* TheUglyGuysHotDaughter: It's surprising that a guy as unattractive as Mr. Zepek could have a daughter as cute as Jill. Maybe she gets her appearance from her better-looking mother.
