|“||No, my poor, foolish son. It is the gods you must fear.||”|
While making his way through a cave, Kratos came across the healer, who told him he would not succeed in his quest to save Calliope. Angered by his statement, Kratos grabbed the healer by the throat, who held Kratos back by giving him the Flames of Apollo. He warned Kratos the Flames would only aid him, not protect him, but his warnings were disregarded by Kratos. He quietly told Kratos that it was in fact the Gods he should fear.
- The healer's behavior with Kratos seems to indicate he is Zeus in disguise, as he referred to him as "my foolish son".
