Zeus! Your son has returned! I bring the destruction of Olympus!


Deimos, a demigod and brother to Kratos.

Demigods are the children of Gods and Humans. They are mortal, however they possess superhuman abilities and the fighting prowess of a god thanks to their divine blood. They are most noted for their supernatural strength and resilience in combat as well as their superior fighting skills. Demigods can become gods themselves if they are deemed worthy enough.

Greek Mythology

In Greek mythology, Demigods and Demigoddesses were mortals who were half-human and half-god. It is possible for there to be a child of two or more gods. This can happen when a god marries a human. When the other mortal marries a god, the two can come together. The two god's genes are mixed together into the child, resulting in a child of two or more gods. These beings possessed some of the powers of gods, though their immortality and invincibility is disputed when compared to actual gods. Many of the demigods in mythology were heroes, such as the legendary Hercules. Sometimes demigods were allowed to become true powerful Gods.

In the God of War Series

The demigods seen in the God of War are all powerful beings many of whom are great heroes. Sometimes, some of the demigods could be considered (or became) a rightful god themselves. The main character, Kratos, is a demigod, along with his brother, Deimos, being the sons of Zeus and Callisto. Because of that, they possessed great physical powers. Like another demigod, Hercules, Kratos eventually ended up becoming a full god himself, but in Hercules' case it only happened in mythology. Orkos, who is part god and part Fury, would be a unique half-god. Other demigods also appear in the games, such as heroes like Theseus and Perseus, and Peirithous. When Kratos ravaged Olympus in his quest for revenge, he had encountered and killed many of the known demigods. Sindri confirms that Magni and Modi are both demigods.
