Kratos was once a brutal Spartan commander turned bloodthirsty slave of the Greek God of War, Ares. However, after being tricked into massacring his family, Kratos rebelled against his master and slayed him, before taking his place as the God of War. His thoughtlessly violent actions antagonized the other gods, and they turned on him and striped him of his godhood. Kratos is now hell-bent on revenge, and vows to murder every Olympian there is.

Abilities and equipmentEdit

Kratos is a physically peaked hulk that can double jump (and triple jump via the Wings of Icarus), push around massive objects with little trouble, and scale walls. His primary weapons are a pair of mythical chained short-swords that can catch on fire, double as grappling hooks, and go by many names, including the Blades of Chaos, Athena, and Exile.
