Continuing the story of Kratos, after killing most of the Greek gods on Mount Olympus, Kratos resides in Midgard with his son. Unfortunately for Kratos, Midgard is ruled by the Norse gods and they don't seem to like the idea of ​​him residing here.

 

11. Freya 

 

In mythology Freya is the goddess of beauty, beauty, love, battle and death. She took on the task of selecting heroic viking apparel souls and bringing them back to Fólkvangar.

Freya, also known as Witch of the Woods and Frigg, is a supporting character in God of War (2018). She is a Vanir goddess who helped Kratos and Atreus on their journey. However, after Kratos killed Baldur, Freya vowed revenge (even though Kratos did it to save her). Freya asked Mimir about the whereabouts of her Valkyrie wings, perhaps the goddess was looking for this treasure to confront Kratos. 

 

10. Njörd

Njörd is the god of the seas, Freya's father. He is often depicted as the leader of the Vanir gods, who are associated with nature, fertility, and wisdom in contrast to the Aesir gods (led by Odin), who are often depicted depicted as violent warriors. 

 

9. Hel

Hel is the goddess of the underworld. Hel's name is also the name of the underworld in Norse mythology, Helheim. In God of War, Kratos travels to Helheim to seek a cure for his son Atreus, but they never meet officially. 

 

8. Fenrir 

 

Fenrir is another brother of Jörmangandr, along with Hel. These three gods are considered to be the children of Loki (as suggested in a Jötnar Shrine). It is possible that Atreus is revealed to be Loki will become a big twist, but it is unclear how Santa Monica Studios builds the plot when incorporating Fenrir.

Even so, in mythology Fenrir is destined to be the one to defeat Odin in Ragnarok. Given Kratos' god-slaying record, it will be interesting to see if Fenrir can complete this mission before Kratos sets his sights on the supreme god Odin. 

 

7. Heimdall 

 

Heimdal is famous in Norse mythology for his exceptional eyesight and ability to foresee events. Heimdall was assigned to watch over invaders and warn the other gods at the dawn of Ragnarok. Myths describe that Loki and Heimdall are destined to fight each other in Ragnarok, so Heimdall may have to face Atreus.

Although Heimdall has yet to appear in the game, he was mentioned in conversation with the dwarven blacksmith, Sindri, when Sindri gave Kratos and Atreus arrows of mistletoe. Sindri claims they are "straighter than Heimdall and have the perfect weight". 

 

6. Sif 

 

Sif is a patron goddess of fertility and crops. She is Thor's wife and stepmother to Magni and Modi (whom Kratos and Atreus defeated in the previous game). Sif was once mentioned by Brok a dwarf blacksmith.

Not much else has been revealed about Sif that suggests he exists in the God of War universe. However, with her stepchildren appearing in God of War and Thor appearing, it is possible that Sif will also appear.

5. Ullr

Sif's stepson. Ullr is the god of hunting and master archer. In Norse mythology, very little is known about Ullr, except for his skills with the bow, hunting, and skiing. In the game, Atreus used to talk about Ullr with respect, so it is possible that Ullr will appear as an advisor. This god can help Atreus improve his archery. 

 

4. Tyr

This god is heavily hinted at in the previous game, especially in the artwork that appears throughout Kratos and Atreus' journey. Tyr is the Norse god of war, equivalent to Ares in Greek mythology. However, unlike Ares who fought mainly for power, Týr is said to fight for peace and justice.
