|Death Battle Combatant|
The Ghost of Sparta and current God of War
|Origin||God of War|
|Appearance(s)||Kratos VS Spawn|
|“|| Ares: I was trying to make you a great warrior! |
Kratos: You succeeded.
|~ Kratos to Ares moments before skewering and killing him|
Born with the name of Kratos and having risen through the ranks of the violent Spartans, this bloodthirsty warrior became a respected general in his army but had to beg the God of War, Ares, during a battle with the Barbarians to avoid the Spartans' defeat. Ares listened to Kratos and bounded a pair of curved, chained blades to his forearms to physically represent Kratos' servitude to the god of war. This, however, ended as Ares tricked Kratos into slaughtering his own wife and daughter. After having the white ashes of his deceased family bound to his skin, Kratos headed out to seek revenge against his former master.
