God of War (2018)
The Soul Devourers were apparently born of the Soul Eaters delivered by Andvari to his brother Mótsognir and Surtr respectively. The one slumbering in Konùnsgard was seemingly created with dark Dwarven magic, while the ones sent to Muspelheim were most likely enhanced by the Fire Giants.
Powers and Abilities
Being modified Soul Eaters, who in turn are corrupted Ancients, the Soul Devourers are beings made entirely of rock, thus are impervious to all forms of physical damage.
Like their predecessors, the Soul Devourers are vulnerable when they attack since they expose their heart.
And while not stated, its also very likely that the Soul Devourers are called such because they too completely destroy the souls of those who they kill.
- The Soul Devourer in Konúnsgard is the sole member of its kind in Midgard, the rest are found exclusively in Muspelheim.
- While its heavily implied that the Soul Devourers are enhanced Soul Eaters, Atreus speculates that they can be created directly from Ancients.
