Version 1.10 | May 31, 2007 | 82 kb

Thanks to a couple of contributions from some readers I was able to update the
section of Euryale's dialogue that I couldn't pick up on when I played through
the game. Many thanks to the two new contributors who are now listed in the
"Acknowledgements" section. More updates on the way if necessary.


Version 1.00 | April 18, 2007 | 82 kb

The entire game script is completed. All of the sections of the FAQ have been
completed. I believe that I am still missing some small side dialogue from the
game, particularly those of which are not presented in cut-scenes. I plan to go
back and record these as soon as I can. I also understand that I have certain
parts of dialogue recorded incorrectly. There were a few sections in the game
where I just couldn't understand what a particular character was saying. Any
help that you can provide is always appreciated.

This guide is divided up into sections, sub-sections, and so on. Each of the
primary sections focuses around one general concept. As you read  more into
each section, you will notice that there will be many other different kinds
of categories, but everything will continue to focus on the same subject.

For your benefit, I have provided a fast and efficient method that you can be
used to access each of the specific sections and categories in the guide. The
procedure is quite simple. First, highlight the search code for the particular
section you wish you locate. Next, right click on the highlighted text and
select the "Copy" option. Now, click on the "Edit" tab at the top of your
internet broswer and select "Find" option. After a small window appears, right
click in the small text box and select the "Paste" option. Finally, select the
"Find Next" option in the window and that should automatically take you to
your desired location.

Another, faster and even more efficient option is to highlight the code, press
Ctrl+C, then Ctrl+F, followed by Ctrl+V, and press the "Enter" key. Both are,
more or less the exact same method.

Hey again, everyone! If you don't remember me, I was the same person who wrote
the script for the first God of War game. So, naturally when the sequel was
released I asked myself, "Why not?" And that's how I came to the conclusion
that I would write the game script for God of War II. I don't actually mean THE
game script, but it will be the only one on GameFAQs, so I might as well give
it some uniqueness. Right? Right.

This document has many purposes. Its primary purpose is obviously that of
allowing those who are interested in examining the dialogue of the game to do
so in text form rather than in audio form. You can also refer to it when you
have any questions concerning a particular part of the story. You can also use
it to better your knowledge about the context of the game. I also learned that
the script can be very helpful to those who may not be familiar enough with the
English language just yet to understand it at the pace with which it is
presented to us in the game. There are probably some other purposes for this
script, but I believe I have mentioned the primary few.

I hope that all of enjoy reading this script as much as I enjoyed writing it.
I would have to admit that it took me rather longer to write the script than I
had first anticipated, considering most of the time I was stressing too much
over my descriptions of what was happening while the dialogue was taking place.
All in all, I would have to say that I am quite satisfied with the script as a
whole. I'll hopefully get to see you all agian when God of War III is released.
Until next time.

God of War saw Kratos, a mortal warrior, set upon an epic quest to dethrone a
God. But his journey did not end there. In God of War II, Kratos sits atop his
Olympus throne, as the new God of War - far more ruthless than Ares ever was.
To end his continued torment, Kratos must journey to the far reaches of the
earth and defeat untold horrors and alter that which no mortal, or god has ever
changed, his fate. God of War II sets an epic stage for a desvastating
mythological war to end all wars.

===============================================================================
 
Narrator        : By defeating Ares, Kratos, the once mortal warrior became the
                  new God of War. However, Kratos soon found himself alone on
                  Olympus, shunned by his fellow gods.


[Kratos stands from his throne and walks forward. He approaches a large
circular structure in the ground that presents him with a view of a savage
battle that is taking place between his Spartan army and Rhodes soldiers.]


Narrator        : But Kratos had no need for the love of petty gods. He had
                  found a new family in the warriors of Sparta. Bringing solace
                  from his past with carnage and battle.

Young Spartan   : My lord, Kratos! Another city is ready to fall! Soon all
                  shall know the glory of Sparta!


[Kratos walks away from the structure to find Athena standing in his path.]


Athena          : Enough Kratos! With every city you destroy, the wrath of
                  Olympus grows. Soon I will no longer be able to protect you.


[Kratos brushes her off.]


Kratos          : I need no protection!


[Athena continues to try to reason with Kratos.]


Athena          : Do not forget that it was I who made you a god, Ghost of
                  Sparta. Do not turn your back on me.

Kratos          : I owe you nothing!


[Kratos turns and walks away from her.]


Athena          : Then you leave me no choice...


[Kratos is seen approaching the ledge of Mount Olympus and leaping downward to
join his fellow comrades in battle on the Earth below.]


Narrator        : Kratos had turned the pain of his memories into hatred,
                  hatred for the gods, who had refused to free him from the
                  nightmares of his past duties. And so he went to Rhodes to
                  deliver the final blow to the besieged city.

                                                                       [02RHOD]
===============================================================================

[Kratos reigns down from the skies like an asteroid, striking the ancient city
of Rhodes. He emerges in his god form, bearing a size that could match that of
the Titans. He begins to destory what is left of the city and its army. Just
then, a peculiar looking eagle uses some type of magic on Kratos.]


Kratos          : Athena!! You conspire against me!?


[The same eagle approaches the Colossus statue in the distance and uses similar
magic to fill the hollow structure with life. With the magic that was used on
Kratos taking full effect, he is reduced to human size.]


Kratos          : Athena! You will suffer for this!!


[Kratos is attacked by masses of Rhodes soldiers, but easily and viciously
slaughters them all without mercy. Three soldiers taking shelter behind a metal
gate cannot believe what they've just seen.]


Rhodes Soldier  : By the Gods, he's killed them all! He still has some of the
                  powers of a god! Ruuuunn!

===============================================================================

[As Kratos traverses through the city of Rhodes, Zeus speaks to him from the
heavens above after he exits the palace.]


Zeus            : Kratos...

Kratos          : I do not need your help, Zeus! I can take down this beast!

Zeus            : I offer you more than help, Kratos. I offer you power.


[A glowing blue sword reigns down from the sky, striking the ground a distance
away with a great force.]


Zeus            : I offer you the Blade of Olympus. It was this blade that
                  ended the Great War and defeated the Titans. Drain your godly
                  powers into the sword, Kratos. Only then will you reach your
                  full potential.

Kratos          : Why do you aid me now?

Zeus            : What I do now I do for the good of all Olympus.


[Kratos makes his way to the Blade of Olympus and proceeds to transfer all of
his power into the weapon.]


Zeus            : With your godly power drained into the blade it will have the
                  strength to destroy all who defy the Gods.


[Now wielding the Blade of Olympus, Kratos uses its great power to enter the
interior of the Colossus and destroys the giant structure from the inside out.
Kratos leaps from the mouth of the giant and lands on the platform below.]


Kratos          : Do you see, Gods of Olympus!? Do you need more proof than
                  this!?


[The falling Colossus makes one final attempt at attacking by bringing his
giant sized hand down on the unsuspecting Kratos. The Blade of Olympus is
knocked from his hand, striking the ground a short distance away from him.]


Narrator        : Placing all of his godly power into the weapon had rendered
                  Kratos mortal, vulnerable to the arms of death. Bloodied and
                  beaten, he knew that to have any hope of survival he must
                  retrieve the Blade of Olympus.


[Kratos coughs out a mountful of blood. His god armor falls to pieces as he
attempts to regain his footing.]


Narrator        : Humiliated before his Spartan army, Kratos dragged himself up
                  from the dirt.


[Kratos slowly makes his way toward the Blade of Olympus, so weak that he can't
even so much as swing his blades. Before he reaches the sword, the same eagle
that used its magic to degenerate him from his godly size appears before him
and reveals its true form. It is none other than the ruler of the Gods, Zeus.]


Kratos          : You!?

Zeus            : Yes, I am forced to attend to this matter myself. Athena
                  refused to undue her mistake. Imagine caring for a creature
                  such as yourself.

Kratos          : Why? Why would you betray me?

Zeus            : It is you who would betray me! Am I to stand idly by while
                  Olympus is threatened!?


[Zeus retrieves the Blade of Olympus from the ground.]


Zeus            : Your hands are already stained by the blood of a god! I will
                  not let Ares' fate be my own.

Kratos          : The Gods are petty and pathetic and your rule is weak.

Zeus            : I grow tired of this insolence! I am the king of Olympus!


[Zeus places the Blade of Olympus at Kratos' neck.]


Zeus            : And it is my way that is the way of the Gods. You must vow to
                  forever serve me.


[Kratos pushes the sword away.]


Kratos          : I serve no one!

Zeus            : Then you leave me no choice!


[Kratos is forced into combat with Zeus. It is clear that defeat is inevitable
for the Spartan as he is assaulted with a barrage of attacks while being unable
to defend himself.]


Zeus            : Submit!

Kratos          : I would rather die!


[Zeus grabs Kratos and throws him to the ground. He then attempts stab Kratos
with the Blade of Olympus. After a futile attempt in resisting by Kratos, Zeus
plunges the sword into Kratos' abdomen.]


Zeus            : It did not have to be this way my son. This path is of your
                  choosing.

Kratos          : A choice from the Gods is as useless as the Gods themselves.

Zeus            : Even now as you draw your last breath, you continue to defy
                  me!?


[Zeus plunges the blade further into Kratos' body.]


Zeus            : Everything you have ever known, Kratos, will now suffer
                  because of your sacrilege. You will never be the ruler of
                  Olympus. The cycle ends here.


[Zeus removes the Blade of Olympus from Kratos and uses its power to send a
powerful wave of energy across the city of Rhodes, annihilating both of the
battling armies.]


Kratos          : You will pay for this... You... Be certain of that.


[Zeus walks away from the defeated and dying Kratos.]


Narrator        : As the life drained out of Kratos the arms of Hades reached
                  out to claim their prize.


[Dark black hands reach out of the ground and pull Kratos below into Hades.]


Narrator        : But there was more resting on Kratos' shoulders than he could
                  know.


[Kratos' body is shown, slowly being pulled into the depths of Hades.]


Narrator        : Kratos was destined to bring about change so severe that it
                  would shake the very pillars of Mount Olympus. His death was
                  something that I could not allow.


[Images of his past suddenly flash through Kratos' mind. He remembers the
battle in which he pledged his loyalty to Ares.]


Kratos          : Ares!! Destroy my enemies and my life is yours!


[Kratos remembers images of Ares, his daughter, and the many women that he
slept with, but they each are speaking with voice he is unfamiliar with.]


Gaia            : Fight Spartan!

Gaia            : You are not meant to die here.

Gaia            : This is not the end.


[Kratos awakens in pure blackness, with a gentle white light illuminating him.]


Kratos          : Who... are you?


[A giant elderly woman covered with earth appears before Kratos.]


Gaia            : I am the Titan, Gaia, ever present Mother of Earth. I have
                  watched you become a powerful warrior and I have been with
                  you through all the events of your life, but I can no longer
                  simply watch.


[Gaia moves backwards, revealing four additional Titans in the background.]


Gaia            : We will help you defeat Zeus. Death is an escape, Kratos.
                  You are a warrior of Sparta, not a coward. Only a coward
                  accepts death.

Kratos          : I am no coward.

Gaia            : Then you must fight. I will show you the way to the Sisters
                  of Fate. Only with their power will you defeat Zeus.


[Kratos awakens in the pits of Hades with new life flowing through him. The
wound inflicted on him by Zeus is fully healed. Kratos then proceeds to rip
his way through the arms of Hades and scales his way back up to the surface.]

[As Kratos resurfaces in the burning city of Rhodes he looks around to see the
bodies of fallen soldiers. Among the dead, a single Spartan soldier seems to
still be moving. Kratos helps the soldier to hs feet.]


Young Spartan   : My lord! I knew you could not be killed. I never lost faith.

Kratos          : Return to Sparta and prepare for battle.

Young Spartan   : But... our brothers are dead.

Kratos          : You can still hold a sword. Spartans do not surrender! Do as
                  your God commands.


[A horse with wings of fire appears from the skies and lands on the platform
where Kratos and the young Spartan are located. This steed is named Pegasus.]


Young Spartan   : And what of you, my lord?

Kratos          : I am going after Zeus! It seems I still have allies on

Kratos          : Turn back to Olympus, beast! I must face Zeus!


[Pegasus continues onward, ignoring the command given to him by Kratos.]


Kratos          : You defy the God of War!?


[Gaia's voice echoes from above.]


Gaia            : You are no longer a god, Kratos. Zeus, Olympus, and the blade
                  which holds all your power will forever more be out of reach.
                  Your only hope is to find the Sisters of Fate and travel back
                  through time to the moment Zeus betrayed you, for only then
                  will he truly be vulnerable. Kratos, to succeed, you will
                  need more help than I can give. My Titan brother slumbers
                  deep inside his mountain prison. Go. It is time for him to

===============================================================================

[Kratos and Pegasus fly through the skies, battling Gryphons on their way when
a particular Gryphon rider knocks them off their course and into a large cave
that seems to be the home of a Titan.]


Typhon          : Who dares to enter this place?


[As Typhon's voice echoes through the cave his breath sends a cold chill past
Kratos as the Titan's form comes into view. Pegasus makes the mistake of flying
too close to Typhon's hand and becomes trapt under its vast weight. Kratos
attempts to free Pegasus from Typhon's grasp, but to no avail.]


Gaia            : You do not have enough power to lift the fingers of the great
                  Titan. You must free the Pegasus, Kratos. It is your only
                  passage to the Sisters of Fate.

===============================================================================

[Kratos makes his way through the cave tunnels and arrives outside on the snowy
mountain cliffs. He approaches a large bird that is feasting on a man.]


Prometheus      : God of War! You... live!

Kratos          : I no longer walk with the Gods. Who has placed you in this
                  torment?

Prometheus      : Zeus! My only crime was helping mankind. When I took the
                  Fires of Olympus to the mortals, Zeus considered it a
                  betrayal. As punishment, he made me mortal and condemned me
                  to be savagely consumed everyday by this cursed bird. Then
                  with the fall of night I am healed. How long have I been
                  here? How long have I suffered this curse? I truly do not
                  know...


[Prometheus takes his last breath and then falls silent. His abdomen, where the
bird had been consuming his internal organs suddenly takes on a very rapid
regeneration process and Prometheus takes his first new breath of life.]


Prometheus      : Please, Ghost of Sparta! Release me from my torment!


[Kratos attempts to break Prometheus' chains, but it only causes him to hang
over the Fires of Olympus by his neck. Kratos is unable to reach the remaining
chain that holds Prometheus.]


Prometheus      : I must burn in the Fires of Olympus! It is the only way! Kill
                  me, Kratos! Kill me!

Typhon          : Get out of my sight!

Typhon          : I will not help you!

hangs from with Typhon's Bane. Prometheus falls into the flames below and is
relieved of his eternal torture. Gaia acknowledges Kratos for this.]


Gaia            : You have freed Prometheus from the torment of the Gods. His
                  flesh has tainted the Fires of Olympus and embodied it with
                  power of the Titans.


[Kratos is engulfed with the ashes of Promethesus, granting him a power
power known as the Rage of the Titans.]


Gaia            : These ashes will give you great strength, Kratos. Take them
                  within you and use this strength to defeat your enemies.

the horizon.]


Gaia            : Kratos, behold the Island of Creation, home to the Sisters of
                  Fate. Here, the path to your true destiny begins. The island
                  is fraught with danger. It was created to prevent all from
                  reaching the three Sisters of Fate. The power of the Sisters
                  will allow you to return to that moment when Zeus betrayed
                  and killed you, Kratos. Thus changing your fate and the fate

[After defeating the same Gryphon rider that attacked him before he entered
Typhon's cavern, Kratos is able to reach the Island of Creation. He proceeds
further toward his objective and arrives at a point overlooking the island.]


Gaia            : You must find a way across to the island, Kratos. For there
                  lies your path to the Sisters of Fate.

Kratos          : Why do you aid me, Gaia?

Gaia            : Zeus must be stopped, Kratos. His story of revenge has been
                  told before.


[A woman cuddling a baby appears at the top of a cliff side.]


Gaia            : You know of the mighty Titan, Cronos. So fearful was Cronos
                  of the Oracle's prediction that his own children would rise
                  against him that he decided to imprison all in his belly.
                  Rhea stood by and watched as her children were devoured one
                  by one. But when the time came for the last of her children
                  to be eaten, she was unable to bare another such loss and
                  devised a trick to save the baby Zeus.


[An eagle appears from the skies. Rhea holds the baby up and allows the eagle
to retrieve him and fly away.]


Gaia            : Rhea commanded the eagle to secretice on her way. He was
                  taken to an island far beyond the watchful eyes of Cronos.


[Rhea picks up a rock uses it as a replacement for the baby. After rapping the
it up in the same brown cloth that Zeus was rapped in, she places the decoy on
the pedestal in front of her as Cronos approached the cliff. Cronos lowers his
head to examine the offering, seemingly suspicious of it. Without giving it a
second thought, Cronos grabs the pedestal, tearing out much of the cliff side
along with it, and drops the inanimate object down his mouth. The eagle with
baby Zeus is shown arriving at the island and releasing the baby into a cave.]


Gaia            : It was I who cared for him. It was I who kept him safe.


[After many years having past, Zeus immerges from the same cave he wandered in
when he was an infant. He has now fully matured into adulthood.]


Gaia            : I nurtured his desire to free his brothers and sisters from
                  Cronos. But my foolish act of compassion would haunt the
                  Titans forever. For in sparing Zeus, we allowed him to return
                  to us with vengance in his heart. He betrayed all of the
                  Titans for the sins of just one. The sins of his father,
                  Cronos.

Gaia            : The Steeds of Time. A gift from the great Titan, Cronos. His
                  unsuccessful attempt to gain the favor of the Sisters of Fate

Theseus         : The Ghost of Sparta. Then what they say is true.

Kratos          : Theseus...

Theseus         : Of all the fools who try, you would be the last I would
                  expect to seek an audience with the Sisters of Fate.

Kratos          : And you are the last one I would expect to become a servant
                  of the Fates.

Theseus         : I serve and protect the Sisters of Fate for the glory of
                  Zeus!

Kratos          : The time of Zeus is coming to an end.

Theseus         : Hmm... You seek the Sisters to kill Zeus?


[Theseus begins to laugh hysterically.]


Theseus         : You no longer possess the powers of a god, Kratos. I doubt
                  you're capable of killing me, let alone the king of Olympus!

Kratos          : Let me pass and I will let you live, old man.

Theseus         : I do not think that is your choice to make.


[Theseus arms himself with his spear, prepared to battle with Kratos.]


Theseus         : Come forward. Let us finally see who is the greatest warrior
                  in all of Greece.


[After a fierce batle, Kratos kills Theseus and obtains the Horse Keeper's Key.
Using the key, Kratos unlocks a door which grants him an audience with the
spirit of the great Titan, Cronos.]


Cronos          : Our destiny has brought us together, warrior. Before my fall
                  in the Great War with the Gods, I hid away the last remnants
                  of my magic. For the good of the Titans, I, Cronos bestoy
                  what is left upon you. Use it well.


[Kratos takes hold of his new magic and uses it to aid him in slaying all those
who stand in the way of his quest to return to the island. After Kratos is able
to destroy the saddles that bind the Steeds of Time and miraculously pull the
island closer to him, he hears Gaia's voice reminding him of his objective.]

that belonged to the Sisters of Fate.]

                  will allow you to move swiftly through time while all around
                  you slows.


[Kratos uses the Amulet of The Fates to gain an audience with a statue of one
of the three Sisters. The decision maker of the pack, Lahkesis.]


Lahkesis Statue : Hear me, fallen god. None defy what the Fates decree. That is
                  how it must be. Only death awaits you at the end of your
                  journey.

Kratos          : My death is what began this journey.

Lahkesis Statue : The Fates have not deemed fit to wait for you. Your soul will
                  never find peace for what you have become.

Kratos          : I am what the Gods have made me!


[Using his chain blades, Kratos furiously destroys part of the statue's face in
a single blow, eventually knocking its entire head off the upper body. The head
of the statue continues to mock Kratos, even as he is fighting enemies below in
the courtyard.]


Lahkesis Statue : We will never allow you to change your fate, Kratos. You will
                  die here, Kratos! You cannot change your destiny, mortal. We
                  will never allow you to reach our sacred temple, Kratos.

[Suddenly a horseman attacks Kratos from behind. He is able to evade and latch
onto the rear of the horse, as he is dragged throughout the bog and into an
arena surrounded by deadly waters. The horseman speaks, revealing an all too
familiar voice that Kratos has yet to forget.]


Barbarian King  : By the Gods, it is true! I have fought my way through the
                  guardians of Hades, and drove my way out of the fires of
                  torment and changed my fate. And for my efforts the Sisters
                  shine their light upon me, delivering the very object of my
                  vengance: Kratos.


[The Barbarian King laughs with a tone vengance in his voice.]


Barbarian King  : The servant of Ares. Do you remember that day, Spartan!?

Kratos          : I will never forget that day!

Barbarian King  : This time, Ghost of Sparta, I will have your head!


[The Barbarian King laughs feverishly, seemingly enthusiastic about the battle
that is to come with the Spartan captain that he once knew. As the battle had
progressed, the barbarian had summoned souls from the Underworld, one of them
being the unlucky boat captain that Kratos had encountered twice already.]


Boat Captain    : No! Not you again!


[Kratos defeats the Barbarian King once and for all, using the warrior's own
massive hammer. He then proceeds on to Euryale's Temple.]

===============================================================================

[As he makes his way around the outside of the temple, Kratos spots a soldier
that tries to escape a nearby cave. A pair of minotaurs are seen dragging him
back into the pit as he begs Kratos for his assistance.]


Soldier         : You! Warrior! Help me! Help mmeeeee!


[Kratos continues onward and finds another soldier that has suffered severe
battle wounds. Kratos lifts him by his collar to see if he still lives.]


Jason's Guard   : God of War... Jason. That beast took him. All our men are
                  dead. Jason has the Fleece. You must save him! The Fleece is
                  the key to Medusa's Temple!


[Kratos realizes the only way to reach Jason is to stop a giant wheel of spikes
blocking his way. Since there is no other proper tool lying around, Kratos uses
the wounded soldier to jam the wheel.]


Jason's Guard   : Help me... No! What are you doing!? I need your help!


[The wheel tears the guard to shreds, but stops its rotation in the process,
allowing Kratos to destroy it and proceed onward. Jason is already dead by the
time Kratos reaches the other side. He kills the Cerberus creature that
devoured the warrior and retrieves the Golden Fleece from its throat.]


Gaia            : This Golden Fleece has the power to deflect approaching
                  weapons and thrust them back to those who deliver them.

===============================================================================

[Using the Golden Fleece, Kratos enters Euryale's Temple. The voice of Euryale
can be heard accusing Kratos as he descends deeper within the temple.]


Euryale         : Kratos... Murderer of children! I know this! I am aware of
                  the misery you have brought upon my brood!


[Kratos encounters another soldier that is apparently seeking an audience with
the Sisters as well. He removes the crank from the second elevator that Kratos
ascend on. Kratos is easily able to use different methods to proceed onward.]


Elevator Guy    : You'll never reach the Sisters, Ghost of Sparta! It is my
                  fate!


[Kratos manages to delve further into Euryale's temple, only to here the voice
of the snake monster continue to taunt him.]


Euryale         : Ruthlessly cutting down my line. Your hands wear their blood.
                  Praise to the Sisters; for on this day Kratos, you will meet
                  your end!


[Kratos later encounters Euryale. After a fierce battle with the creature
Kratos manages to kill her by method of decapitation, similar to how he
murdered her sister Medusa.]

===============================================================================

[As Kratos enters the courtyard and makes his way through the Hall of Atropos,
he continuously hears a voice echoing down from the upper regions of the
courtyard, seemingly calling for help.]


????            : Is someone down there? I can hear you! Please help me! I'm
                  trapt! Up here! Yes, yes! Up here, quickly!

===============================================================================

[Kratos enters highest chamber in the Hall of Atropos and discovers the person
who was calling for aid. It is one of the mythic heroes of Greece, Perseus. As
the door closes behind Kratos, Perseus desperately makes a dash for freedom,
but is unable to make it before the wall crashes down.]


Perseus         : No! That door was my only escape! I have faced test after
                  test in search of the Sisters. And now you have dashed it all
                  away! You certainly do not live up to your reputation, Ghost
                  of Sparta! But... perhaps this is a test? Are you watching me
                  now, Sisters!? Give me a sign! Am I, the great Perseus to
                  kill this fallen God to receive an audience with you? Will
                  that allow me to bring my love back from the grasp of Hades
                  himself!? If not, at least I can bathe in the glory of being
                  the one who brought down the mighty Kratos, the slayer of
                  gods. Although I hardly think a harpie's fool such as
                  yourself deserves such praise.


[Perseus places a helmet over his head that allows him to seemingly disappear,
turning his entire body invisible. As Kratos battles with Perseus, the unseen
warrior mocks him when he is unable to discover his presense.]


Perseus         : I'm right here!

Perseus         : Over here!

Perseus         : No, not there! Over here!

Perseus         : I'm over here!


[Kratos becomes sick of this game of hide and seek, causing him to destroy
Perseus' helmet and weapon, leaving him with only a shield and a slinging type
weapon. Kratos eventually kills Perseus, and uses his shield to proceed with
his quest.]

===============================================================================

[As Kratos approaches the chasm that separates him from the Palace of The Fates
he encounters a vile looking man that appears to be on the edge of insanity.]

Icarus          : Go back! Go back, warrior! There is no passage here. You will
                  never make it across! You think you can but you cannot!


[Kratos stares annoyingly and attempts to step past the man but is stopped
short when the man continues his impulsive babbling.]


Icarus          : Do you hear me!? It is my wings that will make it across! It
                  is my test! Do you not know who I am? Have you not heard of
                  Icarus? It is my fate to make it across! This is my test! The
                  Sisters will grant me an audience. Not you! You will die
                  white warrior, you will die!


[Kratos grabs Icarus and pulls him toward his face.]


Kratos          : I will reach the Sisters of Fate and I will use your wings
                  to do so.

Icarus          : The Sisters will not allow you, a fallen god to bathe in
                  their light!


[Icarus works his way onto Kratos' back in a panic and drags him down into the
great chasm. Kratos and Icarus are throwing punches back and forth as they are
continuously falling into the abyss. Kratos eventually gains the upper hand.]


Icarus          : Wait! Perhaps the Sisters have sent you to help me! I
                  realize now!


[Kratos is through listening to Icarus as he rips both his wings off and lets
him drop into the abyss.]

===============================================================================

[As Kratos makes a landing on what appears to be the face of a very large
creature, he hears Gaia's voice echoing from all around him.]


Gaia            : The Sisters' temple is far above, Kratos. You must get back
                  to the surface.


[Kratos eventually transcends the gaint creature and reaches his destination
where he can resurface into the upper world. As he destroys one of the links
that bind its chains, a voice echoes out.]


Atlas           : Who breaks my chains of torment?


[The creature grabs Kratos and squeezes his body between two of his fingers.
Kratos does his best to retaliate by attempting to push his fingers apart.]


Atlas           : You are strong but you are far too small, even for an
                  Olympian, to be a god. Hmm... Kratos.


[The Titan begins to crush Kratos using his two fingers.]


Atlas           : You dare show your face to me? After what you have done? I
                  will make you suffer, Kratos.


[Atlas continues to try and crush Kratos using only his fingers.]


Kratos          : Atlas! You must trust me! Much has past since we last met!


[Kratos pushes Atlas' fingers apart but only to have them pushing against him
yet again shortly afterwards.]


Atlas           : Why would I ever trust a servant of Zeus?


[Kratos pushes the fingers of the mighty Titan apart once again.]


Kratos          : Because I seek to destroy Zeus!


[Kratos is released from Atlas' grasp as the Titan laughs humorously.]


Atlas           : Kratos, still the arrogant and foolish warrior. You have not
                  changed. Hmm... and how do you plan to defeat the king of the
                  gods?

Kratos          : By taking the Blade of Olympus back and driving it into Zeus'
                  heart! It holds the power I once wielded as the God of War!


[A flashback of the Great War between the Titans and the Olympians is shown.]


Atlas           : The Blade of Olympus? I have not heard that name in many
                  years. Since... since the end of the Great War!


[Zeus is shown using his lighting and gathering it together in a whirlwind of
of pure energy.]


Atlas           : Blood-lust and power raged within Zeus. His desire to rule
                  over mortals was intolerable to us.


[A battle between Cronos, Atlas, and Hades is shown.]


Atlas           : The war between the Titans and the Olympians forged the
                  landscape of the mortal world. It was a war that we knew the
                  Titans must win. If we lost, it would an end to the golden
                  age of the Titan rule. Peace and prosperity for mankind would
                  be no more.


[The combined power of Poseidon and Hades proves to be too much for Atlas, as
his spirit is ripped from his body and is no longer able to fight.]


Atlas           : The battle continued despite my capture. Then Zeus created a
                  powerful weapon to end the Great War. A weapon forged from
                  the heavens and the earth. The Blade of Olympus.


[Zeus is shown using the power of the Blades of Olympus to defeat the entire
army of the Titans in one swift wave of energy.]


Zeus            : I banish you to the darkest pits of Tartarus!


[The scene switches back to Atlas and Kratos.]


Atlas           : I awoke in the torment of the underworld! Banished to the
                  darkest pits of Hades! I would have destroyed Zeus if you had
                  not put me here, slave of the gods!

Kratos          : I no longer do the bidding of the gods, Atlas! I have
                  stomached their betrayal for the last time! Show me the way
                  to the Sisters and I will kill Zeus once and for all!


[Kratos is given the final remains of Atlas' magic, proving that he knows how
to use it by defeating several undead enemies.]


Atlas           : What Gaia says is true, Ghost of Sparta. You are a powerful
                  warrior and a worthy ally of the Titans.

Kratos          : Then tell me how to find the temple of the Sisters of Fate!

Atlas           : None, not even the Titan know how to reach the Sisters'
                  temple. But it is said he who finds it will wield great
                  power. I have given you the last of my magic, Spartan. And I
                  will help you across great chasm. But that is all I can
                  offer.


[Atlas uses his hand to take Kratos back up to the upper world.]


Atlas           : May fate grant you passage, Kratos. For many rely on your
                  success.

he needs to transcribe a passage of text for him. He is not willing to leave.]


Translator 1    : Leave me be! I do not want to die!


[Kratos and the translator are assaulted on their way back to the book.]


Translator 1    : I cannot read the words while they attack!

Translator 1    : I... I have forgotten the words.


[The translator seems to have forgotten the text of the book, so Kratos
persuades him to remember.]


Kratos          : Read it!

Translator 1    : Hear me, Sisters who control the threads!

Kratos          : Keep going!


[Kratos slams the translator's head into the book.]


Translator      : Another searches for what only the Sisters may give.

Kratos          : Read it!

Translator      : As proof that he is worthy... No, please, no! I cannot do it!


[Kratos slams the man's head in the book again.]


Kratos          : Read!

Translator      : Accept this sacrifice of my blood!


[Kratos kills the translator and the blood sacrifice is accepted, opening part
of the passage to the temple.]


Lahkesis        : Well done, warrior. With this sacrifice you have proven your
                  resolve to seek out the Sisters of Fate. However, this is but
                  a small step in your quest to gain an audience with us.

[Kratos comes upon a garden with statues of many familiar gods. A statue of
Athena begins speaking to Kratos, apparently trying to warn him.]

Athena          : Kratos, you know not what you do. There are things far more
                  important than your revenge. Zeus did what he must to
                  protect Olympus. Gaia speaks nothing but half-truths and
                  falsehoods. The Titans are not to be trusted. In you, Zeus
                  feared the destruction of all he stands for.

Translator 2    : Ghost of Sparta? It was foretold that you would come. I will
                  not let you reach the Sisters!

[The translator suddenly leaps over the ledge to his doom. Using a mirror in
the same room that allows one to go back in time, Kratos returns to the exact
moment before the translator jumps and uses the Amulet of the Fates to slow
down time, allowing him to grab the translator before he jumps. Kratos then
proceeds to force him to read from the book of ancient text.]


Kratos          : Read the words!

Translator 2    : Hear me, noble Sisters who forge our destinies. Another seeks
                  an audience to change their fate...


[Using the same method of persuasion that he used on the first translator,
Kratos slams the man's head into the book.]


Translator 2    : As proof that he is worthy... No, Kratos! This will be the
                  end of us all! You must stop!


[Kratos bashes the man's head into the book yet again


Kratos          : This is your purpose! Die with honor.

Translator 2    : I give my blood to illuminate the way.


[Kratos sacrifices the second translator to fully open the way to the temple.]


Lahkesis        : Kratos. Like the fiery Phoenix who is resurrected from his
                  ashes, you too search for a second chance at life. Find these
                  ashes and free the Phoenix. Only then will you find a path to

????            : I have come too far to fail!


[Kratos and the unknown warrior engage in battle. Kratos easily claims victory
but the shadowy figure is able to put up a brave retaliation. After throwing
both of their bodies into daylight, Kratos is able to recognize the warrior.]


Kratos          : You!?


[The young Spartan warrior that survived the chaos at Rhodes was his opponent.]


Young Spartan   : My lord?

Kratos          : I told you to return to Sparta! Why do you leave Sparta
                  unprotected!?


[Kratos grabs at the soldier's collar, demanding answers.]


Young Spartan   : Sparta... is no more.

Kratos          : What treachery is this!?

Young Spartan   : Zeus... He came under the cloak of darkness into Sparta.


[The city of Sparta is shown during a time of nightfall. It is eerily quiet.
The young Spartan and two archers are shown looking out from the top of a watch
tower. Suddenly, a lightning bolt is hurled down from the sky without warning,
destroying watch tower and sending the three soldiers flying to the ground.


Young Spartan   : The people cried out for you. They begged for their God to
                  save them. But you did not come.

Young Spartan   : I was left with no choice. I had to seek out the Sisters to
                  change the fate of our beloved Sparta, for I am all that is
                  left. Now you are all that is left. I have faith that our
                  brothers of Sparta will live on through the true God of War.


[The young Spartan soldier takes his last breath and falls silent. Kratos
becomes enraged, screaming at the skies.]


Kratos          : ZEUUUUUSS!! Is this how you face me!? Coward! I am through
                  doing the bidding of the Gods! Come down here and face me
                  now, Zeus!


[A kraken appears from the depths behind Kratos. Without fear, Kratos casually
walks towards the beast, still shouting out to Zeus.]


Kratos          : I grow tired of the lies of the Gods! Come down here and face
                  me now, Zeus!


[The kraken grabs Kratos and clenches him tightly in one of its massive
tentacles. Kratos then experiences an illusion where he is standing on a hill
that overlooks the burning city of Sparta. His deceased wife approaches him.]


Kratos          : I am so sorry, my love... Can you ever forgive me?


[The voice of Gaia speaks from the woman.]


Gaia            : All is not lost, Kratos. You must go on. There is much at
                  stake here.

Kratos          : I cannot defeat the Gods.

Gaia            : Victory favors you, Kratos. But you must grab hold of your
                  destiny and command it. There is a war on the horizon and we
                  need you to lead us into battle.

Kratos          : To what end?

Gaia            : The death of Zeus. If you relent, Zeus will torment you
                  still. He will not rest knowing you live. And when you die,
                  his brother Hades will see that your soul is tortured for all
                  eternity. You will have no rest until you destroy him.


[Gaia places the power emitting from the flames of the destroyed Sparta into
Kratos, intensifying his rage.]


Gaia            : Take within you this power that burned your beloved Sparta.
                  Let it fuel your rage and hasten your steps towards destiny.
                  The time to act is upon us, Kratos. This battle is just the
                  beginning of a great war that is to come.


[Using this new found rage and power, Kratos defeats the kraken and uses the
Phoenix to enter the temple of the Fates.]

Lahkesis        : We've been expecting you.

Kratos          : Out of my way!

Lahkesis        : Your resolve is admirable, even if it is misguided. None can
                  change their destiny, Kratos. We Sisters determine the fate
                  of all. It was I who deemed that the Titans lose the Great
                  War and I who have allowed you to come this far. It is not
                  your destiny to kill Zeus.

Kratos          : You no longer control my destiny.

Lahkesis        : I see Gaia has filled you with her lies.


[Kratos grabs Lahkesis by the neck, forcing his rage upon her.]


Kratos          : I have warned you! Let me pass!

Lahkesis        : You have always amused us, Kratos. But know this mortal.
                  There is no power greater than the Sisters of Fate. If you

Lahkesis        : You do not defy fate, Kratos!


[Lahkesis thrusts her spear into the ground, emitting a black darkness.]


Lahkesis        : For we have woven the events of your life.

threads and terminates ones life, Atropos.]


Atropos         : And now, that life is at an end!


[Atropos grabs Kratos and flies with him through one of the magical mirrors
surrounding the throne room. They appear to have teleported to the Aegean Sea,
but Kratos is able to see himself fighting the former God of War, Ares.] 


Atropos         : We control your destiny, foolish mortal! With our weaving we
                  can end your life! Or allow you to remain. Search your
                  memory, Kratos. The sword which you stand on delivered your
                  victory against Ares. Without it, you will be the one who
                  dies this day. Not Ares! We can change your past and set your
                  future! This is the power of the Fates!


[Atropos initiates the battle by destroying different parts of blade using her
magic. Kratos eventually defeats her and is able to trap her within her own
twisted mirrored world. Lahkesis waits for Kratos on the other side.]


Lahkesis        : I'm through playing games with you, Kratos. This power was
                  never meant for a mortal like you!


[After killing two of the Sisters, both Lahkesis and Atropos, Kratos proceeds
further into the temple, into the inner sanctum.]


===============================================================================

	-------  2.28 - The Inner Sanctum  -------
                                                                       [02SANC]
===============================================================================

[Kratos hears the third Sister's voice echoing through the inner sanctum.]


Clotho          : It is through my threads that all life is born. You must not
                  tamper with destiny, Kratos. You will destroy everything.


[After a ferocious battle with the temple guardians, Kratos is able to open the
doors of the loom chamber. Gaia's voice can be heard still aiding Kratos in his
unforgotten quest.]


Gaia            : Clotho weaves the thread of life for every mortal, god, and
                  Titan. Find your thread and you will be able to control the
                  mirrors of the Fates, the source of their power and use them
                  as a gateway to return to the time when Zeus betrayed you.


===============================================================================

	-------  2.29 - The Loom Chamber  -------
                                                                       [02LOOM]
===============================================================================

[As Kratos scales his way to the top of the chamber, he is able to hear to
voice of Clotho taunting him.]


Clotho          : You will never control your thread, Kratos. You were not
                  meant to travel through the mirrors of destiny. You are
                  medeling with powers that you do not understand.

Clotho          : This power was never meant for mortal hands.


[When Kratos finally ascends to the top of the chamber, Clotho gives him one
last warning before engaging him in battle. Kratos brutally kills Clotho and
continues on his quest.]


Clotho          : You will never control your thread, Kratos!


[Kratos proceeds to an above balcony where a large mirror resides on the wall.
Gaia instructs him on how to use the mirror.]


Gaia            : The power of the Fates resides within these great mirrors.
                  Find your thread and you will be able to control the mirrors
                  and use them as a gateway to return to the time when Zeus
                  betrayed you.


[After finding his thread, Kratos returns to the exact moment in time when Zeus
is plunging the Blade of Olympus in his body.]


===============================================================================

	-------  2.30 - Return to Rhodes  -------
                                                                       [02RERH]
===============================================================================

Zeus            : Even now as you draw your last breath you continue to defy
                  me!? No matter.


[Kratos appears from an energy portal and throws Zeus away from his body.]


Zeus            : What? How can this be? The Sisters of Fate have aided you.
                  Unexpected...


[Kratos retrieves the Blade of Olympus.]


Kratos          : The Sisters are dead.

Zeus            : Hmph. I underestimated you. A mistake I do not intend to
                  repeat.


[Zeus lifts his hand into the air engulfs his hands with lightning. The two
men charge at each other, flying into the skies on impact. Kratos eventually
is thrown onto a mountain summit.]


Zeus            : Now I will show you the true power of a god!


[Zeus takes on his full godly form and attacks Kratos.]


===============================================================================

	-------  2.31 - The Summit of Sacrifice  -------
                                                                       [02SUMT]
===============================================================================

[The mortal and the god engage in ruthless combat. At one point, Zeus steals
the Blade of Olympus from Kratos.]


Kratos          : I have come to kill you, Zeus!


[Kratos retrieves the Blade of Olympus again.]


Kraots          : I will not let you destroy Sparta!


[Kratos uses a stone pillars and slams it into Zeus. As the battle continues,
Zeus mocks Kratos of his power.]


Zeus            : Your powers are no match for me!


[Kratos becomes enraged and crushes Zeus with a stone block.]


Kraots          : I told you I would make you pay for what you did!


[Zeus eventually becomes angry and reappears in his enlarged godly form.]


Zeus            : I am through playing with you Kratos!


[Zeus attacks Kratos with a burst of great lightning.]


Kratos          : I lay down my arms Zeus!


[Kratos places the Blade of Olympus before Zeus and stands on his knees. Zeus
reduces to a size of a human again and approaches Kratos questioningly.]


Kratos          : Release me from this torment of mine...


[Zeus picks up the Blade of Olympus and readies himself to execute Kratos.]


Zeus            : I will release you from your life, my son, but your torment
                  is just beginning!


[As Zeus says what he believes will be his final words to Kratos, the Spartan
slowly raises his head in surprise. As Zeus swings down, Kratos retaliates
using the Golden Fleece to block his attack. Kratos pins Zeus against some
stone rumble and begins stabbing him continuously with the Blade of Olympus.]


Athena          : You cannot do this Kratos!


[Athena climbs up from the ledge of the summit and attacks Kratos.]


Kratos          : You dare stand against me, Athena!?


Athena          : I do not wish to fight you Kratos but I will defend Olympus!


Zeus            : Know this, my son. You have started a war you cannot possibly
                  win. The Fates have already deemed me victorious!


[Kratos pushes Athena out of the way and makes a run for Zeus.]


Athena          : No Kratos! Stop!


[As Kratos makes a stab at Zeus, Athena places herself in the way of the
attack, having her body pierced by the Blade.]


Kratos          : Athena! No! Why do you sacrifice yourself?


[Kratos removes the blade from Athena's body.]


Athena          : To save Olympus.

Kratos          : I do not seek to destroy Olympus. Only Zeus.

Athena          : Zeus is Olympus!

Kratos          : He brought this to himself.

Athena          : Because of fear Kratos. A fear felt by his father, Cronos. A
                  fear that naught the Great War. A fear that drove Zeus to
                  kill you. His own son.

Kratos          : His son!?

Athena          : Just as Zeus was compelled to destroy his father, Cronos. You
                  are compelled to do the same. No son should destroy his own
                  father.

Kratos          : No! I have no father.

Athena          : God after god will deny you, Kratos. They will protect Zeus.
                  Zeus must live so that Olympus will prevail.

Kratos          : If all on Olympus will deny me my vengance, then all on
                  Olympus will die. I have lived in the shadow of the gods for
                  long enough. The time of the gods has come to an end!


[With Athena saying her last words, her body explodes into a wave of green
energy. Kraots is left with Gaia's voice encouraging him to continue onward.]


Gaia            : Remember, Kratos. You have the power to control time itself.


[Kratos reappears in the loom chamber where he uses his thread yet again to
return to another time.]


===============================================================================

	-------  2.32 - The Great War  -------
                                                                       [02GWAR]
===============================================================================

[Kratos appears in the midst of the fighting in the Great War. He sees a very
familiar Titan before him.]


Kratos          : Gaia!!


[Gaia lowers herself to examine the Spartan warrior.]


Gaia            : We have been expecting you, Ghost of Sparta. The Gods are far
                  too powerful for us to defeat now.

Kratos          : All Olympus tremble at my name! Zeus is weak. Ares and Athena
                  are dead and I wield the Blade! We can win the Great War but
                  not in this time! Together we will destroy the petty gods and
                  we will see Olympus crumble before us! Come with me Gaia.
                  Return to my time! Victory awaits!


[The power of Zeus and the Blade of Olympus can be seen exploding off in the
distance. However, Kratos is able to teleport himself and all of the Titans
before the power of the Blade wipes them all out.]


===============================================================================

	-------  2.33 - Return to Mount Olympus  -------
                                                                       [02REOL]
===============================================================================

[A meeting between the Gods of Olympus is shown. Zeus has an audience with four
of most legendary gods, including Hermes, Helios, Hades, and Poseidon.]


Zeus            : We have faced far worse than this one fallen mortal. But we
                  are the Gods. We whom the mortals worship. We who rule over
                  this land. We will not be swept aside by this petulant fool!
                  Gods, put aside the petty grievances that have splintered us
                  for so long. We will unite. We will stand together. And I
                  will wipe out this plague! Olympus will prevail!


[The council is interrupted by a sudden rumbling that is shaking the very
foundations of Mount Olympus. The Gods scramble to ledge overlooking the mortal
world below. Gaia can be seen scaling the mountain. As we move in closer, we
are able to see Kratos on her back, pointing the Blade of Olympus toward Zeus.]


Kratos          : Zeus! Your son has returned! I bring the destruction of
                  Olympus!


[As we are shown the lower regions of the mountain, it is apparent that the
entire surviving Titan army from Great War is making their way toward the
palace of the Gods to begin another war. A burning city is shown below.]




                               The End Begins...

   CJayC : For creating GameFAQs. Without him, this website wouldn't exist.
           Therefore, I most likely would never have written this guide. Keep
           up the great work man.

   Instruction Manual : For the names of all the characters in God of War II
                        and their respective voice actors.

               understand in Euryale's temple.
