Raiden's Bio





Raiden: God of Thunder, Protector of Earthrealm. Ageless and wise beyond
measure, he is the defender who rallies Earthrealm’s mortals to fight against
the forces of evil. When his brother, Shao Kahn, Emperor of Outworld, finally
invaded Earthrealm, only Raiden and his Forces of Light stood between slavery
and freedom. As Earthrealm merged with Outworld, Raiden held the line and
fought back against the emperor, defeating him and freeing Earthrealm. It
seemed that peace was finally achieved, but the battle for Earthrealm had
only just begun.

Raiden's Ending

As the inter-dimensional conflict ended, Raiden returned to Earthrealm, only
to discover that exposure to his homeworld’s sun weakened him greatly. The
sorcerer Quan Chi offered Raiden a jade-colored stone that would replenish
his power – in return for his sworn allegiance. Where Quan Chi acquired this
stone is a mystery. Raiden must now decide between servitude to an evil
sorcerer… or mortality.
