I had lost the chains I had originally put on his wrists but the helmet was still around.
How this came to be was me being so excited that I finally got a Kratos, but when I got it , it was missing something then I saw my BAF Ares Helmet from the Marvel Legends Hasbro line of toys.
Well anyway I developed a back story for him , Sorta like a What-If kind of thing.
The God Of War met his death at the hands of Odin, thrown into Hades the Underworld.
Kratos was neither a mortal or god, He was now what some call the "Ghost Of Sparta"
While in Hades he found a young spartan about to be "killed" Kratos then made a quick dash for the spartan war helmet.
Kratos later escaped, but to his surprise he was a ghost.Stuck with one Blade Of Athena and one Blade Of Chaos, Kratos is armed and ready to fight any dark and strange beings.
