    ~~HISTORY~~
    
    Scorpion is one of the more popular characters of Mortal Kombat.
    He he is a yellow garbed, hell-spawned Ninja spectre who looks
    to seek revenge for the death of his clan and family. Scorpion
    is easily recognized by his yellow and black clad ninja uniform.
    Unmasked, his head is a skull or sometimes a flaming skull. He
    is famous for his spear attack, which he uses to draw his enemy
    toward him while he shouting, "Get over here!" or "Come here!".
    
    While he was alive he was a member of the clan known as the
    Shirai Ryu, he was an assassin named Hanzo Hasashi. He was
    hired by Quan Chi to find a map while Quan Chi had also hired
    Sub-Zero's, the older. They both made it to the end of their
    quest and Sub-Zero defeated Scorpion in and killed him. Scorpion's
    soul then fell into the Netherrealm. After this Scorpion became
    obssessed with revenge and became a Ninja Spectre.
    
    After some time later they meet and battled again in the
    Netherrealm while Sub-Zero was on a mission to get Shinnok's
    amulet. Sub-Zero defeated Scorpion again. It wasn't until Shang
    Tsung held the Mortal Kombat tournament that Scorpion one. At
    the end of this tourament the two fought to the death and Scorpion
    killed Sub-Zero, who later becomes Noob Saibot. Scorpion then burst
    into flames and returned to the Netherrealm.
    
    A year later Scorpion heard word that Sub-Zero planned to compete
    in the next Mortal Kombat tournament, he became enraged with the
    fact that Sub-Zero was somehow still alive. Scorpion followed
    Sub-Zero to the second Mortal Kombat which was held in Outworld
    by Shao Khan. At this tournament they never meet in battle. Scorpion
    saw one of Sub-Zero's matches where he won and spared his opponent.
    Scorpion wondered why Sub-Zero was now merciful and later found out
    it was his younger brother. Scorpion vowed not to harm this new
    Sub-Zero as it wasn't the man that killed him. Scorpion was then
    summoned back to his eternal damnation of the Netherrealm. 
    
    Sometime later Scorpion was tricked by Quan Chi to bieleve
    that Sub-Zero was involved with the murders of his family
    and his clan. Scorpion was offered life in exchage for assistance
    in the war against the Elder Gods. Scorpion accepted for he could
    face Sub-Zero in kombat. When they finally met they fought in battle.
    Scorpion, again, emerged victorious as he did with the older Sub-Zero
    but as Scorpion stood triumphantly over Sub-Zero the defeated Ninja
    warrior claimed innocence. Quan Chi appeared and told that he arranged
    for the killing of Scorpion's clan. Before Scorpion could say anything
    Quan Chi attempted to send him back to the Netehrrealm but Scorpion
    grabbed Quan Chi, bring them both into the Netherrealm.
    
    During this time in the Netherrealm Scorpion tortured Quan Chi.
    Sometime later Quan Chi struck a deal with two Oni Demons, Moloch
    and Drahmin to help fight off Scorpion. They did and Quan Chi escaped
    the Netherrealm through a portal but Scorpion followed him through. They
    were, however, send to different areas. After searching for Quan Chi for
    sometime he was ambushed by the two Oni Demons from before and thrown
    into a powerful Soulnado which they bieleved would kill Scorpion.
    
    Scorpion, however, managed to escape and ended up in an area known as
    the Void. While in the Void he met the Elder Gods, which he never beileved
    in. This event changed him forever. He also then witnessed Raiden's sacrifice
    and Onaga's survival. Scorpion agreed to become and Champion of the Elder
    Gods in exchange for them to ressurect his clan...
