|“||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.||”|
God of War
The Village Oracle is an African woman of a village that Kratos slaughtered that included his wife Lysandra and child, Calliope. When Kratos and his men came to destroy the village, the oracle warned him not to enter the temple. The oracle proclaimed that from that day forward, "the mark of his terrible deed will be visible to all" as the ashes of his family merged with his skin, never to be removed, therefore creating the infamous nickname of the "Ghost of Sparta".
- The 24th Greek letter "Omega" that the Oracle carries around her neck is also the symbol that appears on the front cover of all the games in the God of War series, implying that Kratos is the "end" for the gods.
- She is voiced by Linda Hunt, the actress who also portrays Gaia.
- She was seen briefly in God Of War: Ascension, when Tisiphone disguised herself as the Village Oracle, saying: They were not there by chance, Kratos, before Kratos snapped Tisiphone's neck.
