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.

Reptile is a hideous human-like reptilian creature, who is renowned for his stealth and incredible fighting ability.  He is said to be the last surviving member of his race, the Saurians, and he is obsessed with freeing his homeworld from Shao Kahn's grasp.  To do this he loyally serves the emperor in hopes his request will be fulfilled.  Shao Kahn uses Reptile's abilities to spy on and eliminate enemies of the empire.  Reptile appears first, in the opening fight of the tournament which he loses against Johnny Cage.  He appears, once again, at Shang Tsung's side when they were confronted by Smoke in Outworld.  Reptiles last appearance, was when he scaled a building during the invasion of Earthrealm, spit acid at Kabal, and lost a fight against Striker.

Ermac is introduced during the first Mortal Kombat tournament as Shao Kahn's newest creation.  He is an entity composed of  the souls of many warriors of Outworld.  Due to this Ermac refers to himself as "we".  This concentration of souls within Ermac gives him the power of telekinesis and the ability to travel between the realms.  In his first bout, he loses his fight against Liu Kang and isn't seen again until Sub-Zero, Sonya, and Jax come into the soul chamber.  Jax attacks Ermac, but is caught in his telekinetic grasp and is helpless as Ermac tears his arms from his body.  Ermac remains Shao Kahn's puppet, doing his every bidding without question.

Sindel was once queen of Eternia until Shao Kahn and the forces of Outworld invaded.  She was taken by Shao Kahn as his new wife and forced to watch as her people were enslaved and her husband, King Jerrod was killed.  Her daughter, Kitana, was also adopted by Kahn as his daughter.  Overtime, this grew to be to much and Sindel took her life, leaving behind a magical ward that prevented Shao Kahn from entering Earthrealm.  To rid Shao Kahn of this barrier, the necromancer Quan Chi resurrected Sindel and brainwashed  her into being obedient to Kahn.  Revitalized with the energy given to her by Shao Kahn, Sindel comes to Earthrealm and kills many of Raiden's forces, but she meets her demise at the hands of Nightwolf's suicide attack.

Liu Kang

Liu Kang is one of Earthrealm's greatest warriors.  He was orphaned as a child and raised by the Order of Light's Shaolin Temple, where his impressive talent was witnessed by the God of Thunder, Raiden.  He traveled to the Mortal Kombat Tournament to deafeat the sorcerer Shang Tsung and the forces of Outworld to preserve the saftey of Earthrealm.  Liu Kang defeated Goro and Shang Tsung to become the new Champion of Mortal Kombat.  Following the invasion of the Shaolin temple, Liu Kang and his allies then traveled to Outworld to compete in Outworld's Mortal Kombat Tournament where he defeated the emperor of Outworld, Shao Kahn.  Some time after, he and Raiden returned from a visit to the elder gods to find many of their allies dead at the hands of Sindel.  Liu Kang loses faith in Raiden, believing him to have gone mad, and doesn't believe him when he says to let Shao Kahn merge the realms.  In an attempt to stop Liu, Raiden electrocutes him and fatally wounds him.  It is unknown whether Liu Kang is still alive or if the attack killed him.
