Atreus is the main character in Sony’s God of War, the game is the brainchild of famed video game developer, Cory Bartlog. The character of Atreus is based in part on Greek Mythology, but also Bartlog’s own real-life experiences with his son. It is interesting to note that aspects of the game, like Atreus translating Old Norse to his father Kratos, were actually inspired by similar experiences Bartlog had with his son.
The storyline of the game follows Atreus, who after the death of his mother, encounters Kratos, his demi-god father. He works hard to prove himself to Kratos because of a sense of rejection he feels as they were separated for extended periods during his childhood. This actually worked in Atreus’ favor as he ultimately becomes a better warrior while trying to overcome his insecurity.
