the once beautiful realm known as Edenia. He conquered and destroyed it,

Shang Tsung is
Shao Kahnís demon sorcerer. Handsome and though quite ominous, he is not
a screamer and rarely raises his voice. Believed to be from Earth originally,
Shang Tsung has the ability to cross the dimensional planes and travel
between Earth and Outworld. Shang Tsung also has the unholy power to steal
the souls of those he kills, which allows him to shapeshift or "morph"
into the body of the dead warriors. This soul consumption is also the fuel
that keeps him young and strong.
He is a fighter
whose only allegiance appears to be the Outworld Realm ruled by the Emperor,
Shao Kahn. Though a powerful sorcerer in his own right, he is not Shao
Kahnís equal, though if he could, Shang Tsung would take over Kahnís position.
He would turn on Kahn in a nanosecond if he were certain he could depose
or outsmart him. Shang wants Kahnís power and is ultimately scheming to

to whatever role is needed in order to get what she wants, whether it be
sexy, sub-serviant, or fierce.
