God of War Ragnarok characters
Below, you can find a list of all the God of War Ragnarok characters that will be in the game:
Kratos is once again the main protagonist of God of War Ragnarok. The Greek God of War, wiped out the Greek Pantheon and eventually married Faye and bore a child called Atreus. As age and wisdom sets in after God of War, Kratos in God of War Ragnarok will once again join his son on a journey across the nine realms and attempt to guide Atreus down the right path.
Atreus joins his father at his side once again. Imbued with new abilities, age, and powers, Atreus is capable of a lot more than what he could do in the 2018 game. With his Norse name of Loki uncovered, his heritage and destiny will come into focus as the Norse saga of the franchise concludes.
Mimir once again accompanies both Kratos and Atreus, being at their side to spout stories, tales, and jokes as you explore the vast expanses of the nine realms. Possessing a well of knowledge and wisdom, he was originally the ambassador of the Aesir Gods until Odin imprisoned him and he was freed by Kratos.
Angrboda is a brand new character in God of War Ragnarok and she is a young giantess, who has survived the genocide of the giants by the Aesir Gods. She is a key knowledgeable ally.
The leader of the Valkyries, Freya returns in Ragnarok. As the estranged wife of Odin, Freya plays a large role in the game after the death of her son Baldur, and as more and more gods like Thor appear. She was once an ally of Kratos and Atreus but is out seeking vengeance and possess the ability to turn into an eagle and use powerful magic.
Thor finally makes his appearance after being teased at the end of the 2018 game. Wielding Mjolnir, this brutish figure will be seeking out Kratos and Atreus after they both killed his sons Magni and Modi. And, as the son of Odin, we don’t doubt that the confrontations between Kratos and Thor will lead to the god’s wrath raining down on them across the game’s nine realms.
Tyr was a legend in the 2018 game, but it turns out he is still alive after Odin spread rumours that he had been killed upon imprisoning the god. Having travelled across the world, collecting relics and treasures from different cultures, Tyr will be a key friend for Kratos and Atreus as their journey expands.
Sindri is one of the dwarven brothers who were the stars of the show in the quieter moments of God of War. He returns after allying with his brother at the end of the first game and remains a severe germaphobe. He brought Mjolnir and the Leviathon Axe into the world.
Sindri’s brother is Brok, who is a master craftsman and responsible for creating Mjolnir and the Leviathon Axe alongside Sindri. Now that the brothers have made up they will help both Kratos and Atreus traverse the nine realms.
Durlin is another new character in God of War Ragnarok. He is a mysterious figure who lives in Svartlefheim and is a knowledgeable figure which Kratos and Atreus can help to better understand the gods and Tyr. The animal on his shoulder is also a mix of a squid and an octopus, a squidopus called Dinner.
Odin is the ruler of Asgard and the nine realms and father to Thor. Believing in Ragnarok and the downfall of Asgard, Odin is looking for a way to prevent the inevitable and find a way to keep peace in the nine realms.
