God of War Proves Kratos Really Is a Sadistic Murderer

As he travels from Greece to Egypt to find peace of mind, God of War: Fallen God #2 proves Kratos really is a sadistic murderer and a selfish monster.

WARNING: The following contains spoilers for God of War: Fallen God #2 from Chris Roberson, Tony Parker, Dan Jackson and Jimmy Betancourt, on sale now.

God of War: Fallen God continues the story from God of War III’s post-credits, showcasing what Kratos did before he made his home in the Norse realm. Kratos has left the Greek region, but as he seeks haven in Egypt, he encounters a shaman who keeps tormenting him about his destiny.

Kratos just wants control of his own life back and the agency to roam free at last. It doesn’t help that his fiery blades are following him wherever he goes, either. As much as we feel sorry for him, Issue #2 proves that he really is a sadistic murderer.

Kratos has killed many times before, either in revenge or in desperate times of survival. As he traverses the Nile, however, we see a different side of him. He’s haunted by the past, and specifically Athena, who reminds him of his curse and why he is shackled to the Blades of Chaos.

Kratos finds himself back at the village he thought he left behind. There, the Egyptian natives keep asking him to help with a giant crocodile. The problem is, Kratos wants no part in their war. He simply wants to be left alone, telling the people who see him as a messiah that their gods are monsters.

The shaman insists that Kratos is the answer to their prayers, but Kratos shoves the innocents off, making it clear they can suffer and die for all he cares. He even threatens to murder them himself, just to deny the beast a meal, which once more shows how badly he’s broken. This is a vengeful side of Kratos, but the shaman still believes in him, appealing to reason and his sense of humanity.

Kratos has lost loved ones before, and he does contemplate helping out as an act of mercy, but he ultimately decides that no one should dictate his path but him. He renounces the people and the shaman, urging them to find salvation elsewhere.

In his mind, no one — not god nor man — can compel him to do their bidding, but this leaves Kratos alone to face the monster. Oddly enough, while he seems to have failed the mental test, scorning mankind and threatening them with death, this killer instinct might be what helps Kratos save himself in the upcoming fight. Still, such selfishness is unbecoming of such a hero of legend who knows the injustice that the world breeds, and who really should be a champion for people in need.
