Zeus is the King of the Gods and the creator of the Blade of Olympus as well as the god of sky and thunder. Zeus is the youngest son of Cronos, his two older siblings being Poseidon and Hades. Due to his erotic escapades, Zeus himself is the father of numerous characters, including Ares, Athena, Hercules and Kratos (the main character of the series). After Pandora's Box is opened, Zeus is consumed by paranoia and acts as an antagonistic force for much of the series. Zeus is voiced by Paul Eiding in the first God of War game and by Corey Burton in all subsequent appearances.
