Bio

Kung Lao trained with the Shaolin Monks to become one of Earthrealm’s most skilled defenders. But his immaturity and impetuousness prevented him from being taken as seriously as his friend Liu Kang. Despite Lao’s shortcomings, he was able to defeat both Shang Tsung and Quan Chi in Mortal Kombat. But his life was cut short when Shao Kahn brutally murdered him. In death, Kung Lao’s soul was collected by Quan Chi, who used it to create an evil “revenant” version of Kung Lao. He now serves Quan Chi and the Netherrealm.
