Mortal Kombat: Deception

--------------------------------
A Word Before You Read the Bios:
--------------------------------
This F.A.Q. is only for Character Bios. So if anybody have anything to add,
please do so. Otherwise... sit back and enjoy life.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Li Mei
-----

===
Bio
===
I had entered the tournament held by the Deadly Alliance in hopes of winning
the freedom of my enslaved town - I was a naive fool. Shang Tsung and Quan Chi
had no intention of rewarding a victor. Instead they prepared to transplant my
soul into the last remaining corpse of Onaga's ancient army. Had it not  been
for the surprise intervention of master Bo Rai Cho, I would have become a
servant of evil.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
Master Bo Rai Cho brought me back to health, and for this I am forever in his
debt. The brief moment my soul occupied the warrior corpse changed me in way I
may never fully understand. Master Bo Rai Cho has trained me well during the
time I have spent with him, and I feel a sense of duty to Outworld like never
before. But I cannot deny that I feel strangely drawn to a new power taking a
hold in this realm...

=======================================================

-----
Name: Sindel
-----

===
Bio
===
Once again Edenia had been invaded by an Outworld threat. The Dragon King
flooded this realm with Tarkatan warriors and held me captive in my own prison.
My only daughter, Kitana, had somehow become his slave and guarded me night and
day. I remained captive, for I could not bring myself to assault her, even to
regain my freedom. Thank the Elder Gods Jade did not share my apprehension.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
Jade and I escaped to Outworld to discover what we could about Onaga. He had
been searching Edenia for... I know not what. I fear, however, that the
knowledge left behind by Shao Kahn so many years ago may be his objective. That
information should have been destroyed -- but if it still exists, it could
spell disaster for the realms. I cannot save my daughter Kitana until I learn
more about her captor.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Noob & Smoke
-----

===
Bio
===
Under Shao Kahn's rule, I hunted enemies of his throne. As a member of the
Brotherhood of Shadow, I did Quan Chi's bidding. All the while serving Shinnok,
Lord of the Netherrealm, as well. Now all my masters are gone; I am at long
last free to pursue my own destiny. Outworld is where I will begin my ascension
to power. Now is the time to forge a legion of assassins loyal only to Noob
Saibot.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
I found my first ally in the abandoned fortress of Shao Kahn. Deep in the
labyrinth of torture chambers and prison cells, the cyborg ninja Smoke lay
inoperative. A war trophy of the late Emperor, Smoke had lain there since the
invasion of Earthrealm. It did not take long for me to reactivate his
nanotechnology, which reshaped and repaired his artificial body.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Liu Kang
-----

===
Bio
===
The sorcerer Shang Tsung had killed me and consumed my soul. I remained
trapped within his being, tormented by his evil, along with many other victims
of his vampiric soul drain. Through Shang Tsung's eyes, we witnessed the battle
with Raiden, who sacrificed himself to stop Onaga. Raiden's blast destroyed
Shang Tsung and our souls were free to ascend into the heavens. I remained in
Outworld, however, to aid my friends in the fight against the Dragon King.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
Why someone would desecrate my grave and reanimate my body, I cannot say.
Somehow my corpse retains my knowledge of martial arts, and has killed many
innocents. Though I am not the perpetrator of these slayings, I cannot help but
feel responsible for the brutality committed by my corporal form. The battle
between mind and body has begun.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Raiden
-----

===
Bio
===
I was well aware of Onaga, the former ruler of Outworld. Shao Kahn had been
his advisor until he poisoned the Dragon King and stole Outworld for himself.
But Onaga had somehow returned, more powerful than before. His powers seemed
augmented by a force previously exhibited only by the Elder Gods. Even the
might of the Deadly Alliance combined with my own could not defeat him. I did
the only thing I could: I released my godlike essence in an attempt to destroy
them all.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
By the time my energies reformed in Earthrealm, I was aware of all that had
transpired. I became disgusted with the doings of mortals. It was Shujinko's
vanity and desire for glory that had led to the return of the Dragon King. I
will no longer allow the will of men to determine the fate of this realm. They
will fight for it, or I will destroy them. All will fear the new God of Thunder.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Sub-Zero
-----

===
Bio
===
My fellow Lin Kuei Frost, had betrayed me and stolen my Dragon Medallion.
Unable to control the medallion's power, she was consumed by her own freezing
ability. I searched Outworld for a suitable place to bury her remains when I
happened upon ancient ruins, carved into a mountainside.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
I learned that the ruins were a holy structure belonging to a lost race of
people who had attained mastery over cold. After throrough study of this
culture,I now believe both Frost and myself to be their descendents. I laid
Frost's body in a sarcophagus and left the catacombs donning the armor of my
newly discovered heritage.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Scorpion
-----

===
Bio
===
In my haste to confront my nemesis, Quan Chi, I was ambushed by two oni and
cast into a powerful soulnado. I would surely have been torn apart by the souls
trapped there had I not managed to escape into the Void. It was there that I
first set eyes on the fabled Elder Gods. I would be forever changed by this
encounter.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
While in the Void, I witnessed, along with the Elder Gods, the death of
Raiden and the re-emergence of the Dragon King. Suddenly aware of my presence,
the Elder Gods transformed me into their servent and gave me a new purpose: to
prevent the Dragon King from merging the realms.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Ashrah
-----

===
Bio
===
I am a demon, a denizen of the Netherrealm. For ages, my sisters and I have
blindly served Quan Chi as members of the Brotherhood of the Shadow. But I
questioned a command given by the sorcerer. To set an example, he sent my own
sister to slay me. During my escape, I discovered a weapon -- a sword -- that
seemed to be of heavenly origin. With each demonic assassin that has fallen to
this blade, I have felt a strange exhilaration. It is as if the taint of evil
is leaving me.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
Now I understand the strange sensation I feel when I exterminate a demon of
the Netherrealm with this sword. The sword is purifying me as I cleanse the
world of evil. With each fiend I eradicate, my presence here becomes more
unstable... soon I will be expelled from this realm. If I were to slay a
powerful demon such as Noob Saibot, I would finally become an ascending demon,
free from the Netherrealm forever.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Tanya
-----

===
Bio
===
I had been called an enforcer of the Deadly Alliance. I preferred the term
"ambassador." It was my duty to impose the will of Quan Chi and Shang Tsung
upon the denizens of Outworld. But the sorcerers' rule was short-lived and I
found myself leaderless, longing to return to my birthplace in Edenia. When
Baraka caught up with me, he gave me a choice: Serve his new lord of Outworld -
or die. I have lived for thousands of years because I make the right decisions.
I pledged my service to the Dragon King.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
Onaga was aware of Shao Kahn's invasion of Edenia so many years ago.
Apparently the Dragon King had been watching Shao Kahn from beyond death.
Whatever the late emperor had been attempting, Onaga was determined to complete
it. He was looking for lost information, ancient spells that would fuse the
Elder Gods' six Kamidogu into one and therefore make it possible for him to
wield their combined might. I brought him to Edenia, where I believed that
information still existed.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Nightwolf
-----

===
Bio
===
As the Shaman of my tribe, my connection with the super natural has been
interrupted by visions of a dark presence. To confront this foe, I have assumed
the role of Sin-Eater to absorb the sins of my tribesmen. I must embrace this
corruption, though I will eventually become a threat to those I care for. It is
a necessary evil if I am to save the realms.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
The Sin-Eater ritual has corrupted my soul and will therefore allow me to
enter the Netherrealm. There I will implement my plan to defeat Onaga. The sins
I have absorbed have poisoned my temperment however and I have forced myself
into exile until my task is complete in the depths of Hell.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Jade
-----

===
Bio
===
I had arrived too late. Kitana and her allies from Earthrealm had been slain
in an epic battle against the Deadly Alliance. At the least, they had killed
many Tarkata before they died. As I knelt beside her, a menacing, dragon-like
creature strode across the bridge to the palace. I leapt out of sight and
watched as he resurrected the dead and ordered them to regroup near the Living
Forest. I followed them in secret.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
The Dragon King's entourage crossed into Edenia and imprisoned Queen Sindel.
He used Princess Kitana to guard her, knowing the Queen would not attack her
own daughter. I fought Kitana and eventually managed to lock her in a cell of
her own. Kitana screamed furiously, alerting the enemy. Before Queen Sindel and
I escaped through a portal to Outworld, I caught a last glimpse of the Dragon
King... and at his side... Tanya!

=======================================================

-----
Name: Ermac
-----

===
Bio
===
We are Ermac. We are the fusion of the souls of dead warriors, created by
Shao Kahn to obey him without question. We served as his enforcer for many
years, until the Earthrealm warrior Kenshi released us from our bondage and
awakened our perception of the worlds that surround us. We are now free to
choose our own destiny.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
We encountered a fellow warrior spirit, who, like Kenshi, understood our
suffering. Eager to atone for the atrocities we had committed in Shao Kahn's
name, we agreed to help this warrior, Liu Kang, to liberate his allies from the
control of the Dragon King. Shao Kahn may be dead, but it seems his essence
lives on in this new menace. It is as if they are both manipulated by the very
fabric of the realms.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Baraka
-----

===
Bio
===
I am of the Tarkata, a savage race of nomadic warriors bred from denizens of
Outworld and demons of the Netherrealm. My kind have served many masters: Shao
Kahn, Shang Tsung, Quan Chi... All have fallen. All have been weak. But our new
master is strong! Invincible! We will slay all who oppose him! We will follow
him to bloody victory!

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
ONAGA! He has ordered us to ravage Outworld in order to distract the foolish
allies and give him time to complete his plans. Mileena poses as Princess
Kitana to confuse and misdirect the enemies of the Dragon King. She lies to
them and tells them to attack our raiding parties. But our Lord will be nowhere
near us. We draw their armies away from him. When my master's will is done,
they will all be consumed!

=======================================================

-----
Name: Hotaru
-----

===
Bio
===
There is an order to the universe -- laws that all of nature must obey. For
centuries I have imposed order on those who would wreak havoc. Outworld has
long been a source of disruption, but an old ruler has made a triumphant
return. During Onaga's rule, his military forced peace throughout his domain. I
will see that his return brings order to this war-torn realm once more. I will
fight against the insurgents to clear a path for the Dragon King's coming.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
Years ago, I fought against the vile Tarkatan warriors. I vowed to protect
outworld city of Lei Chen from the attacks of Shao Kahn. Time have changed. Now
I find myself aiding Baraka and his troops. I pledged the loyalty of the city
to Onaga and begun my mission to stop the uprising against him. Baraka's
militia have brought word of an earthrealm warrior named Sub-Zero who has slain
many Tarkatan. I will hunt him down. I will bring him before the justice of the
Dragon King.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Havik
-----

===
Bio
===
Chaos. The universe thrives on it. Forces pitted against each other in
never-ending turmoil. My kind worships entropy. We wander the realms sowing
disorder. My latest sojourn had brought me to Lei Chen, an Outworld city
imprisoned by the one known as Hotaru. For many years he had kept chaos at bay
beyond the outer walls. I would undo the order he had fought so hard to
maintain.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
It was I who led the "heroes" to the location of the Dragon King. The chaos
that would ensue from their attack would be a blessing to this realm. Onaga
must never gain the upper hand in this struggle. The realms shall never cease
their struggle! Chaos will reign forever!

=======================================================

-----
Name: Kenshi
-----

===
Bio
===
I lay near death after my fight with the Red Dragon Mavado. But the ninja
Sub-Zero found me and aided my recovery. As my wounds healed, the souls of my
ancestors told me of their return to my sword. Their captor, Shang Tsung, was
most certainly dead—though I did not know how or by whom. Having no more reason
to remain in Outworld, I made a temporary alliance with Sub-Zero, and we began
our search for a way back to Earthrealm.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
Still weary, I traveled with Sub-Zero to the portal that had brought him to
Outworld, I noticed that his armor was charred and worn from battle. He told me
of a powerful warrior named Hotaru, a loyalist to a new ruler of this realm,
who had attacked him for slaying a troop of Tarkatan militia. Sub-Zero thought
he had defeated the warrior, but I am not so sure. I have sensed a presence
following us for the past few days...

=======================================================

-----
Name: Kabal
-----

===
Bio
===
I had left the Black Dragon and all that it stood for… but to some I would
forever remain associated with that despicable organization. Eventually the Red
Dragon clan found me, and I was defeated by Mavado. He left me for dead and
took my Hookswords as his trophies. As the life trickled from my body, a
stranger rescued me: a cleric of Chaos who called himself Havik. He convinced
me to return my clan to its former glory. Never again will I deny my devotion
to the Black Dragon.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
Inspired by Havik, I set out to find and kill Mavado of the Red Dragon. His
organization is secretive, but not invisible. It feels good to have Hookswords
in my hands once again. I have since recruited young, skillful warriors to fill
the ranks of the new Black Dragon clan. I will now lead my fellow Dragons to
Outworld, where Havik has a task for us. It will be an excellent opportunity to
test the abilities of my young comrades -- and weed out the weak ones.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Kobra
-----

===
Bio
===
I had always wondered if my martial arts training would work in an actual
fight. I trained in school for years. I was the best in my class. But we were
never allowed to hurt each other—REALLY hurt each other. How did I know this
attack would break an arm? That this one would rupture an organ? I prowled the
back alleys of New York in search of an opportunity to put my skills to the
test. I needed to know what kombat really was.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
I couldn't stop. The thrill of kombat consumed me. I had killed! First it was
drug dealers and gangbangers it allowed me to justify the violence. But the
bloodlust grew. I killed for money, looting convenience stores and gas
stations. When the law finally caught up with me, I couldn't remember how many
had died. Sitting cuffed in the police car, I heard some of the officers
shouting and firing their guns. When some chick and a masked guy with bloody
Hookswords stepped into the light, I knew I was in the company of friends.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Dairou
-----

===
Bio
===
I was once a member of the Seidan Guard.  I believed in the power of Order
and lived by the strict codes of my superiors. I had saved many lives during my
years of service. But when I killed an assailant in a fit of rage. I was
arrested and sentenced to a life of incarceration. For all the good I had done,
the event that had come to define me was that one moment of chaos. I eventually
escaped during a riot incited by the Resistance.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
I emerged from prison a changed man. No longer would I follow orders of the
Seidan. Neither could I bring myself to give in to Chaos. Instead, I opted to
serve myself. I became a mercenary, a warrior for hire, and have become revered
in Orderealm's secret underground. My neutrality has been put to the test,
however, as my current contract is to find and kill my former guardsman, Hotaru.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Kira
-----

===
Bio
===
I was the first of Kabal's recruits. I had stolen away to the mountains of
Afghanistan, selling weapons to terrorists—disguised as a man. When they
discovered my gender, I had to fight my way out of the cave. I suppose Kabal
assumed that any woman who could do business with cutthroat extremist
organizations and live to talk about it must be worth of the new Black Dragon
clan. When I alone emerged from the cave, Kabal stood before me with an offer
to join him.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
The complacency of the original Black Dragon allowed for their destruction.
Kabal claims that a new Black Dragon clan will rise from the ashes—more
ruthless, more calculating than before. We will not exist as a mere band of
pirates. We will cause the downfall of civilization itself and live in a world
of blessed anarchy.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Mileena
-----

===
Bio
===
I am a creation of sorcery, the hybrid of a Tarkatan warrior and the princess
of Edenia. My purpose was to eventually replace my... sister... Kitana, from
whom I was cloned. Kitana regained her memories, however, and uncovered the
plot to supplant her. After Shinnok's invasion, she cast me into her prison,
where I remained until Baraka freed me.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
My hatred for Kitana consumes my every thought. But Baraka tells me that his
new lord, the Dragon King, has possession of Kitana's body and uses it as his
personal bodyguard. My only chance for revenge against her will be to serve
Onaga and pose as the princess, leading her precious alliance of Edenia and
Outworld to their doom.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Darrius
-----

===
Bio
===
I am Darrius. There are many in the realm of order who would call me a
terrorist. But to the true patriots of Seidan, I am a hero. I fight against the
rule of an oppressive regime. I am the leader of the resistance movement. Our
numbers are ever-growing. One day I will lead the charge against the
establishment. Until then, I wait... and plan... and scheme.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
One of the best recruitment tools I have discovered is the law itself. If my
ranks are in need of a powerful warrior like a Seidan guardsman, for instance,
I will hire an outsider to kill the man's family in the hope that his rage will
lead to a violent altercation with the assassin. Once he is imprisoned for the
attack, I free the Seidan guardsman and easily recruit him to our cause.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Bo Rai Cho
-----

===
Bio
===
I have dealt with Tarkatan warriors before. Baraka and his mutant thugs were
easy to evade as I entered Shang Tsung's palace to rescue Li Mei. I had arrived
not a moment too soon. I snatched her away from the Deadly Alliance and swiftly
carried her to safety. An alarm was sounded, and hordes of Tarkatan warriors
pursued us across the main bridge.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
On the other side of the palace bridge, I was met by Earthrealm's thunder
god, Raiden, and his band of heroes marching to battle the Deadly Alliance. I
bid them a glorious victory, but my primary concern was Li Mei's safety. I have
since learned of the disaster that took place at the palace. The Dragon King
had indeed returned, as legends foretold. Without our Earthrealm allies, I fear
for Outworld's future.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Shujinko
-----

===
Bio
===
I was a fool. I had allowed myself to be deceived into believing that I
worked for a greater good. I was in fact an unknowing tool of a greater evil.
My ego allowed Onaga, the Dragon King, to manipulate me into bringing together
the lost Kamidogu. They are the very weapons by which the Elder Gods smashed
the One Being, forming the many realms we call existence. But their misuse can
also bring the realms crashing together again... reawakening the One Being...
unmasking all reality.

=============
Alternate Bio
=============
The realms are the shattered consciousness of the One Being, who has been
working subconsciously through the Dragon King. Should Onaga succeed in
conquering reality by fusing the Kamidogu, he will unwittingly begin a cascade
of events that will merge all the realms together. The One Being will become
whole once more, and all other beings will cease to exist. I must find and
unite the warriors of all the realms if I am to save us. I will use the Dragon
King's gift against him.

=======================================================

Last Word:
----------
I was "a bit" surprised by the game, it is better than D.A. Although its
combo system is easier than D.A's (the timing), it has better improvements. 
The gameplay and fun value make it better, but the question remains... Will 
Mortal Kombat 2 days ever come again?!

There you have it. If anything is wrong, tell me. Respect the hard work,
please. Thank you for your time!
