The real-life historic event that provides the basis for Fimbulwinter (which happens at the end of the game) started in 535 AD. Since Zeus only discovers Pandora after Kratos kills Ares, and the feeble mortal Daedalus is still alive when Kratos arrives, Kratos was the God of War for twelve years, making him about 50. Kratos can easily find himself as among the oldest DC characters there are. In the digital comic it shows Kratos learning and training to control his anger by fighting wolves without actually fighting them, he tells Atreus about this so he wasnt a total stranger to him and also in the comic, Faye is still alive and shows her and Kratos were quite close and even in the game you can tell he cared deeply for her, I mean then entire plot of the game is Kratos and Atreus taking her ashes to the mountain because they BOTH loved her, so it's fair to say it wasn't just meet Faye, fuck, boy is born, then Kratos leaves the land only for him to return when Faye dies. God of War 2 takes place at least 12 yrs after 1. For shame, fans. Seems like Kratos was like "hey you're a good warrior and so am I. Cookies help us deliver our Services.

Ten years of service to the gods he is in his early 30's for the first Gow game.

So with the temple being 'asleep' for 150 years, the vase has been there for the same amount of time, possibly longer, So this is showing that Kratos is at the very least 150 years old. Since he still looks in his fifties in the ps4 game even though he's over 1000+ years old, I bet it'll take some thousands of years for him to look as old as Zeus. This isn't totally impossible because the World Serpent did some time travel shenanigans during Ragnarok and has shown a willingness to help Kratos. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. When we first use the realm travel room in Tyr's temple with Faye, she says that the temple has been 'asleep for 150 winters'. Well Kratos has served the gods for 10 years by the time of the first god of war and his daughter was around 10ish I think can't remember exactly, so really he'd be about 50 by the time of the original god of war (that's if the devs did their history properly and did follow historical Spartan men being allowed to marry after finishing the Agoge), How did you get that Kratos has been in the Nordic region for that long? I am on the side that thinks time shenanigans will play some part in the coming games, still not sure about Kratos being Tyr theory (some part of me kinda doesn't want him to be Tŷr, but rather Tŷr being an example to Kratos of there actually being 'good gods').
