Asclepius? The God of Healing?

–Kratos

Asclepius is the Greek god of healing and medicine and a son of Apollo.

In Greek MythologyEdit

Asclepius (pronounced /æsˈkliːpiəs/; Greek Ἀσκληπιός Asklēpiós [askliːpiós]; Latin Aesculapius) is the god of medicine and healing in ancient Greek religion. Asclepius represents the healing aspect of the medical arts; his daughters are Hygieia ("Hygiene"), Iaso ("Medicine"), Aceso ("Healing"), Aglæa/Ægle ("Healthy Glow"), and Panacea ("Universal Remedy"). The rod of Asclepius, a snake-entwined staff, remains a symbol of medicine today, although sometimes the caduceus, or staff with two snakes, is mistakenly used instead. He was associated with the Roman/Etruscan god Vediovis. He was one of Apollo's sons. Asclepius was killed by Zeus' thunderbolt in mythology, with one of the reasons being the fact Asclepius was able to bring the dead back to life, something that Hades was unhappy with.

In God of War ComicsEdit

Asclepius is the god of medicine and the creator of Ambrosia, which is the cure to everything, that Kratos is, yet again, desperately searching for. The search takes Kratos to the Spire of Asclepius. Asclepius himself never appeared in the comics.

TriviaEdit

  • There is a labor with his name in the Multiplayer of God of War: Ascension. The "Health of Asclepius" is completed when the player receives a "100 Green Orb Fountain Fills".
