Kratos is the main character in God of War.
Following his revenge on the gods of Olympus, Kratos eventually settled in the Norse realm of Midgard. There he met and married a woman named Faye, and the two had a son together. While Faye wished to name their son Loki, Kratos convinced her to name him Atreus, in honor of a Spartan warrior he once fought with.
At the end of Fimbulwinter, Kratos and Atreus will be visited by Thor.
In the years following his revenge on Olympus, Kratos has tempered his violent and aggressive demeanor, becoming a stoic and standoffish, but ultimately wiser man.
- Superhuman Strength: Kratos possesses strength far exceeding that of a normal man. He is capable of feats such as snapping a troll's neck, flipping Tyr's Temple, and smashing through solid rock with his bare bands.
- Superhuman Durability:
- Spartan Rage:
- Enhanced Longevity: While never directly stated, Kratos has a lifespan far exceeding mortal men. Evidence of this can be found in Tyr's Temple: a Greek vase bearing an artistic representation of the Ghost of Sparta can be found inside. Since the temple has been stated to have been underwater for almost 150 years, it can be implied that Kratos is at least 150 years old.
Origins in Mythology
In Greek mythology, Kratos (alternatively spelled Cratos) is the god of strength, notable for helping chain the Titan Prometheus.
In the giant's engravings, Kratos is referred to as "Fárbauti". In Norse myth, Fárbauti is the Jötunn husband of Laufey and the father of Loki.
