Berserker's True Name is Beowulf (ベオウルフ, Beourufu?), the protagonist of "Beowulf", said to be the oldest epic poem of English literature. The setting of the epic poem amounts to south of modern Sweden to the vicinity of Denmark.
This tale is composed by two parts; part one is the story about Beowulf proceeding to exterminate the giant Grendel together with fifteen of his subordinates, while part two portrays an aged Beowulf unfolding a mortal combat with a dragon, fifty years after. It has been said that the dragon who fought the aged Beowulf would amass treasures and spit out fire. It could be said that its existence is like an archetype of the dragons that appear in fantasy stories.
That being said, since the Beowulf in this work has been summoned in his golden age, he is a battle-maniac by nature. Seems that, if he were to meet Achilles or Heracles, he would end up entering a mode of "there is no choice but to talk with our fists!" Lacks most of the merits and demerits from Mad Enhancement, and even mutual understanding by means of conversation is possible. He possesses reason, and it is also possible to have a high grade conversation with him.
The etymology of Berserker; one of the Servant Classes, is the berserk from Norse mythology, and it has been told that Beowulf's name also has its origins in this berserk. However, he accomplished the feat of dragon slayer while retaining his reason even after having aged and does not display even a fragment of madness.
While highly associated with the word Berserker, he never lost his sanity in life. Likewise, his Mad Enhancement merely makes him more rough, but with completely no enhancement in stats or weakening in reasoning. It is just to the degree of some ferocity being left, and there is no effect whatsoever to the Parameters.
