500 years ago, the shapeshifter Shang Tsung was banished from the Outworld to the Mother
Realm (Earth) for his crimes. There, with the aid of his pupil Goro, a hideous half-human dragon,
he was able to atone for his crimes by unbalancing the furies of the realm, allowing his master
Shao Kahn and his minions to enter the dominion and rule for ever.|
He was defeated.
He returned to the Outworld a failure, facing execution at the hands of Shao Kahn, supreme ruler
of the Outworld, the Astral Planes of Shokan and the surrounding kingdoms. With the apparent
death of Goro, his fate seemed sealed. But Tsung told Kahn of his plan for revenge, a plot so
evil and twisted even Kahn was persuaded to grant him one final opportunity to redeem himself. He
cleverly lured his adversaries to the bizarre Outworld where they would face a new challenge--a
tournament hosted by Shao Kahn himself.
