In the Greek saga of God of War, Kratos (find out if Kratos is truly immortal in God of War) collides with the Gods to take revenge for their injustices and cruelties. These divine creatures, however, are not the only beings that populate Hellenic mythology and, consequently, the games branded Santa Monica Studio: let’s find out who the Titans are.
Taking into consideration what we are told in God of War (with the due differences compared to the real myths), we know that the Titans were generated on the Isle of Creation: Gaiaincarnation of the Earth itself, is the mother of all Titans. Themisinstead, she is the one who gives the world itself a conception of justice and law, and a purpose for the other Titans.
Between these, Cronos is the ruler of creation and father of numerous children: the Gods. A prophecy, in fact, told of how the great Titan would one day be defeated by her own offspring, which is why he began to devour her. RheaCronos’s wife, however, wanted to save their sixth and last child, hiding him on a distant island; it was about Zeus who, later, with the help of Gaia, would save the brothers by rebelling against Cronos.
With the end of the Great War the Titans were defeated and bound to different tasks: Cronos would have supported the Temple of Pandora, while Atlas would have borne the weight of the world on his shoulders. Only long after, intertwining with the revenge mission of Kratos (in this regard, why does Kratos in God of War hate the Gods?), the Titans would have tried another war. However, with Gaia’s death in the finale of God of War IIIeliminated by the God of War himself, the hopes of regaining control of the world over the Gods were finally extinguished.
