    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!

    Special Thanks:

    1)To Midway.
    2)To Gamefaqs.
    3)To all my friends for the encouragement.
