From this night, the mark of your horrible deed will be visible to all. The ashes of your wife and child will be stuck to your skin. Never to be removed

–The Oracle

God of War

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 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 had 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." Therefore explaining the origin of kratos' infamous nickname of "The Ghost of Sparta" and thus setting forth the events to come later on in the series.
