    ~~HISTORY~~
    
    Taven is the son of Argus and Delia of Edenia. He along with
    his brother Daegon were put into a stasis of sort and were
    being watched over by a dragon for each of them. The dragon
    Orin is the protector of Taven. In the newest era of Mortal
    Kombat, Armagedden, starts with a contest between Taven and 
    his brother set by their father to save the realms from
    Armagedden. Their task was to find and defeat the fire elemental
    Blaze. The winner would succeed their father's place and become
    a full god and the protector of Edenia. They would also decide
    the fate of the other warriors of the realms.
    
    When Taven is awakened by his dragon he finds out that his brother
    woke up prematureable many millenia ago and that he had become
    corrupted. He learnes from Caro, Daegon's Dragon Protector, that
    Daegon killed their parents and formed what is now known as the Red
    Dragon clan in order to find Blaze and kill Taven. Eventually Taven
    and Daegon meet in battle near an edge of the cliff where Armagedden
    is said to begin. Taven emerges as the victor, killing his brother
    in the process. The Pyramid of Argus then rises nearby, Taven then
    fights his way to the topwhere he has to fight Blaze. He finds out
    that his victory will have one of two endings, all of the kombatants
    loss their abilities or they all die. Taven then defeats Blaze in Mortal 
    Kombat. in the end however, something happens. None of the two possible
    endings happen. His victory over blaze, increases the powers of the nearby 
    Kombadants. As a result Taven makes it his duty as a new good to delay
    Armageddon until a solution can be found.
