Princess Kitana is the daughter of Sindel, and stepdaughter of Shao Kahn, Emperor of Outworld. She was one his most trusted assassins, and she accompanied Shang Tsung to Earthrealm for the first tournament. She attempted to assassinate Liu Kang before his final match. When he defeated her she asked him to take her life, but he refused. During the tournament in Outworld Kitana fails to kill her opponent. Shao Kahn, infuriated, killed the man himself. Kitana, after meeting with Raiden and his allies, goes to find answers in Shang Tsung's Flesh Pits. There she finds Tsung's newest creation Mileena; a clone of Kitana infused with Tarkatan blood. After confronting her new "sister" Kitana confronts Shao Kahn, and he tells her the truth of her father and the conquering of his realm. Later, after Liu Kang defeats Shao Kahn and Kitana joined the forces of good, Quan Chi restores the emperor to full health. He then ordered Sindel, infused with the power of Shang Tsung, to kill Earthrealm's warriors. When Sindel confronts them she kills most of the warriors before Kitana's eyes, and then proceeds to attack Kitana. After Nightwolf sacrifices himself to kill Sindel, Kitana dies.
