Thousands of years ago in a battle with the fallen elder god known as Shinnok,
I was responsible for the death of an entire civilization.
To rid all realms of Shinnok's menace,
I waged a war that plunged the earth into centuries of darkness
and banished Shinnok to a place called the Netherrealm.
Now after Shao Kahn's defeat at the hands of the earth warriors,
Shinnok has managed to escape his confines of the Netherrealm.
The war is now being fought once again,
only this time,
it can be won by mortals.
