Kratos is the hero of Sony's popular "God of War" series, so named because Kratos becomes the (Greek) God of War in the first game after killing Ares in an act of revenge for tricking Kratos into murdering his wife and daughter before any of the games took place. His fight with Ares in the first game isn't the only feud Kratos gets into, as his father Zeus tricks him into abandoning his godly powers at the beginning of God of War II. Kratos's life sure is messed up!
Ares, who became the Greek god of war, had a miserable childhood. The only son of the mighty Zeus, ruler of the Olympians, and his wife Hera, Ares was disliked by his father from the moment he was born and was barely tolerated from then on.
