    My understanding was that the demon child isn’t Griffith’s child but Guts’s. It was corrupted by what happened in the Eclipse. That’s why it was haunting Guts so much and warning him when Casca was in danger. The Skull King even told Guts that the child would naturally seek out it’s parents.

    • Peter

      Yeah, I’m not sure if I was super clear. My understanding is the child was Guts and Casca’s but tainted by Griffith and used as a means to form a new body in their world. But the child was also separated body and spirit so while the physical material was used to make Griffith, the spirit became the Moon Child.
