How Skull Knight joined the Tourney

Skull Knight is an enigma cloaked in mystery who may or may not be a fallen king. What is known for certain is that he is a mighty entity who has the power to distort dimensions and that he opposes the God Hand. It is with his power that he saves Guts, Rickert, and Casca from their first encounters with the Apostles, or the demonic entities of the setting.

He appears at random intervals of the narrative, often to support Guts or to offer words of grim foreboding.

After receiving a premonition of a looming conflict, Skull Knight rides to the second Tourney and confronts a canine-girl named Wanda.
