From this night forward, the mark of your terrible deed will be visible to all. The ashes of your wife and child will remain fasten to your skin. Never to be removed.

–The Oracle

God of WarEdit

The Village Oracle is an African woman of a village that worshipped the Goddess Athena, though Kratos slaughtered the village on the orders of his then master Ares, who hated Athena for being favored by their father Zeus.

When Kratos had come face to face with her, the oracle warned him not to enter the temple as dark things would await the young Spartan. However, Kratos merely moved her aside and went on to kill all those inside the temple, including his beloved wife Lysandra and his daughter Calliope, who had been placed at the temple by Ares, the God of War. The oracle then laughed spitefully at the grieving Kratos, who was cradling the bodies of his slaughtered family.

After Kratos had exited the building and cursed Ares for his actions, the oracle had proclaimed that "From this night forward, the mark of your terrible deed will be visible to all. The ashes of your wife, and child will remain fastened to your skin. Never to be removed." With that curse the ashes of his deceased family would permanently cover his skin. This explained the origin of Kratos' infamous nickname "The Ghost of Sparta", and thus set forth the events that came later on in the series.
