In the beginning, Kratos was a brute warrior, a leader, and a father. In battle he nearly lost his life until he prayed upon the God of War, Ares. It was then the Blades of Chaos were strapped and molded into his very flesh. Kratos had become the very weapon of Ares himself and listened and obeyed his every word. He was ruthless and lost any humanity he once had. During a raid, Kratos was warned by the village oracle, but ignorant and prideful, he ignored her very warnings. He raided the temple and slaughtered every being inside… Including his family that Ares had purposely transported there… Cursed and his skin covered in the ashes of his family, he had obtained the name, Ghost of Sparta… His quest for vengeance had begun.
