the old female oracle and old guy digging

14 replies 393 views Edited Feb 9, 2010

who were they in GOW? Someone told me the old guy digging was Zeus, but I don't have any clue. 

and the oracle witnessed Kratos killed his wife and daughter has a strange facial, could she be Athena?

For all we know, an old hag and some deity (likely Zeus).

Great question, I always wondered the same thing.....I always thought after playing GOW1 that the old man was zeus, but now I dont know. He talks about "when all seems lost, I will be there to help", so after playing GOW2 i thought maybe it was Gaia in the form of an old man? It could have been Athena maybe? I dont think zeus would be that kind to kratos. As far as the old bag, I always thought it was just one of athena's oracles or somethin. It's true we are not likely to find out though, a cool mystery nonetheless

I always thought of the digger... as just some crazy guy, what he looks like... diggin' hole, figuring "hey, he might die at some point of this crazy crap... maybe I'll help him out!" and the old oracle as just... an oracle of the village ares tricked him into destoying. Blah.

Isn't that the same hole you come out of when you escape from Hades? Wonder if there's a connection there?

I'd say either Zeus or Athena. could be Zeus b/c he didn't want gods fighting gods so he enlisted the help of Kratos to defeat Ares that would explain why he'd help him out of Hades. could be Athena b/c she wants Kratos alive to defeat Ares to save the city of athens, isn't athens Athena's city? I thought maybe Kratos and the same goes for other people on other forums but it can't be Kratos b/c where is the tattoo, unless he got it removed b/c it reminded him of when he was the the spartan army and what he did to his wife and kid. maybe it's just another god.

It was confirmed by the bald headed guy in charge of GOW3, that the grave digger is Zeus. He says so in the documentary that came with the GOW3 Ultimate Edition. Just watched it last night.

I'm only halfway through those.  I'll have to watch to hear that for myself.  It's about time it was stated outright.
