Oberon (/ˈoʊbərɒn/) is a king of the faeries in medieval and Renaissance literature. He is best known as a character in William Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's Dream, in which he is Consort to Titania, Queen of the Faeries.
God of War (2018)
Long before the events of the God of War (2018), Oberon was the King of the Fae from a faraway land. Mimir served under the Fae King for many years as an errand boy and unofficial jester causing mischief among the humans. Though this was considered to be a crime worthy of severe punishment by most of the other Fae, Oberon allowed this behavior because he found Mimir's actions to be entertaining.
Though initially amused by the chaos that Mimir and his kin would cause, Oberon eventually grew bored with their antics, and Mimir, fearing that he might finally decide to punish them for their crimes chose to leave his homeland behind eventually winding up in the Nine Realms.
Literally nothing is known about Oberon's personality past the fact that he apparently greatly enjoyed Mimir's chaotic nature and found humor in the humans who were unfortunate enough to be the targets of his pranks.
He did seem to have a more serious side to him as Mimir feared punishment for his actions after it became clear that Oberon had grown tired of his jokes.
Powers and Abilities
Oberon's full abilities are unknown, but given that he is the King of the Fae, it can be assumed that he is extremely powerful.
- Though he never appears in the game outside of a mention, Oberon could be considered a very important character to the overall story and the series, as he was the primary reason for why Mimir chose to leave his homeland and travel to the Nine Realms. Without this, Mimir would likely never have met and been imprisoned by Odin and would never have met Kratos and Atreus to be able to aid them in their quest to reach Jötunheim.
