When she was little she was saved by Griffith and from then on she had feelings for him, but with the progression of the story she begins to have feelings for Guts. That puts her in a position where she doesn’t know what to do and is the main reason for her mistakes in battle. After Griffith’s capture she takes command of the Band and rescues him with the help of Guts.
