Hope is for the weak.

If all those on Olympus would deny me my vengeance, then all of Olympus will die.
— Kratos

We will be the gods we choose to be, not those who have been. Who I was is not who you will be. We must be better.
— Kratos to Atreus


Kratos, prior to his gruesome present, was a powerful Spartan warrior. After his city threatened to collapse under an extended siege, Kratos begged the god Ares to assist them; in return, Kratos became Ares' champion and had his blades grafted into his wrists to show his servitude. However, Ares betrayed Kratos and tricked him into killing his family. Afterwards, Kratos made it his mission to kill Ares at whatever cost. He succeeded, though Kratos would afterwards come into conflict with many of the other Olympians, whom he killed as well. Unintentionally causing the end of Greece.

After surviving the end of Greece by unknown means, Kratos would travel to Scandinavia and have a son with his second wife. Now, he is doing the best he can to be a good father to his young son Atreus, teaching him all he knows to survive in the world of the Norse gods.

Weaknesses: Kratos has immense anger management problems, making him prone to reckless and needlessly violent behavior, and impeding normal judgment. He is also quasi-suicidal, having thrown himself off of a mountain at one point to end his life. | Often holds back his Rage and Power (in one case letting foes wail on him) and rarely gives into his anger, his Spartan Rage ability is only temporary giving him a limited window of opportunity to use it, seems to only use his fists when in Spartan Rage, his healing factor requires a force of will to trigger (exhibited in his fight with Baldur)
