Gennon (ゲノン, Genon) is a minor antagonist in Berserk and a non-playable character in BERSERK and the Band of the Hawk.

Originally a regional aristocrat, Gennon rose to fame in Chuder through his vast wealth. Gennon is also a pedophile with many beautiful boy pages. In the early days of building the Band of the Hawk, Griffith agrees to sleep with him in exchange for warfunds and supplies.

Years later, he is a commander general who is put in charge of Chuder's defense at Doldrey. Gennon has no interest in taking part of the war until he learns that Griffith is near his doorstep. Believing that "his hawk" is returning to him, Gennon personally takes to the field during the climatic siege; his top priority is to procure Griffith for himself again. When Boscogn dies and Doldrey falls, all of the Chuder soldiers abandon Gennon. In the aftermath of their panicked retreat, Griffith privately confronts the lone general. While Gennon fondles his legs and contemplates Griffith's feelings for him, the mercenary remains unfeeling to anything the man has to say. He kills the general by stabbing him through the eye.


Gennon is like many of the nobility within the setting: cruel, self-important, and manipulative. He objectifies other people like it's his birthright, and uses his wealth or title to get what he wants. Gennon has no experience fighting a real war and doesn't know how to command with respect. While he obsesses over Griffith over all other pages, Gennon has no concern for his personal safety. If Griffith were to suffer a broken arm during his capture, he'll consider it an acceptable loss.


  • While armed with a sword, Gennon is one of the few NPCs to not fight the player directly.
