Elysium fields 2

The Elysium Fields.

Greek MythologyEdit

The Elysian Fields is a location of the Greek Underworld where the good and pure live. It is the ultimate Utopia, where those pure of soul can live in harmony with each other.

As with several other religions, it bares common similarities to other ideas of Heaven.

In God of War: Chains of OlympusEdit

When Kratos came to the Underworld in search of his daughter, Calliope, the goddess Persephone said he was to relinquish his power to the Forsaken Tree to enter Elysian Fields, as those with weapons could not possibly be pure. Kratos obeyed, and was promptly reunited with his daughter and was willing to abandon the gods to their fate. However, when Persephone revealed her plans to destroy the Pillar of the World, Kratos was forced to leave his daughter behind knowing she would die again.

To stop the corrupt goddess, he needed to regain his powers, Kratos reluctantly pushed his daughter away. He began killing the Elysium souls holding his powers, thus regaining them, becoming the Ghost of Sparta once more. His decision simultaneously caused his daughter grief and forever banned him from entering Elysium to be with her again.


  • In mythology, Elysian Fields is not restricted only to pure souls but to those who died of heroic and noble death as well. This is similar to Valhalla in Norse myths.
  • The famous place in Paris, France, called Champs-Élysées is French for Elysian Fields, Champs meaning fields, and Elysees to mean "Elysian"
