ABOUT KANO /////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Outfits: Standard: He wears a black jacket and brown pants with knee pads in metal, he also wears black gloves. Alternate: He has his MK1 outfit.Dressed in all white with that glowing sash around his chest and no gloves this time. Alternate 2P: He has his MK3 outfit which in my opinion looks much better on him since it is black and he is in the Black Dragon after all. Kano is my favourite Mortal Kombat fighter. He always manages to survive and is an extremely cunning general in Shao Kahn´s army. Status - Mercenary Alignment - Evil Weight - 200 lbs. Height - 5´10" Styles - Xing Yi Weapon - Butterfly Knives Story: (MK1) A Mercenary, Thug, Extortionist Thief - Kano lives a life of crime and injustice. He is a devoted member of the Black Dragon, a dangerous group of cut-throat Madmen feared and respected throughout all of crime's Inner Circles. Ending: (MK1) With the defeat of Goro and Shang Tsung, Kano will bring his own brand of treachery to the Tournament. His Black Dragon organization forms a monopoly over the contest that brings shame and torment to those involved. Their reign will end in anarchy and death. It will result in the final dismantling of the Tournament and the Battle of the Sans. Story: (MK3) Kano is thought to have been killed in the first tournament. Instead he´s found alive in the Outworld where he once again escapes capture by Sonya. Before the actual Outworld invasion, Kano convinces Shao Kahn to spare his soul. Kahn needs someone to teach his warriors how to use Earth´s weapons. Kano is the man to do it. Ending: (MK3) When Shao Kahn lets Kano live, he fails to realize the resourcefulness of the scheming human. Kano lures Kahn´s army away on a false mission: then nukes them using a stolen weapon. He fights the remaining warriors and finally defeats Kahn himself. Kano´s true intention is to take over the souls which Kahn once possessed. But Kano is unable to control the spirits as they escape and attack him. Rumored to have suffered a violent death Kano was ignorant of the fact that he saved the world he tried to conquer. Story: (MKDA) Kano had been defeated in a battle with the Special Forces agent Sonya Blade during Shao Kahn´s invasion of Earthrealm. Shao Kahn incarcerated Kano for his failure, but later hastily promoted him to General when he prevented the Emperor´s assassination at the hands of the Shokan warrior known as Sheeva. With the merging of Earthrealm and Outworld not yet complete, Shao Kahn ordered Kano to portal back to the last remnants of Outworld to gather more troops for the final push against the Earthrealm opposition. Kano had remained in Outworld and served as General of Shao Kahn´s military after the retreat from Earthrealm. For years he enjoyed the power of commanding the greatest army in Outworld. But Shao Kahn´s power was fading and there was a chance that Kitana´s forces might spell the Emperor´s undoing. When the sorcerers Shang Tsung and Quan Chi confronted Shao Kahn in a surprise attack, Kano decided not to interfere and remained hidden in the shadows to ally with the winning side. Once Shao Kahn was defeated, Kano offered his allegiance to the Deadly Alliance. Ending: (MKDA) Kano and Sonya had fought before. Although Kano was humiliated by his defeat at her hands so many years ago, this time the outcome would be different... Kano had stolen Quan Chi´s amulet at the request of Shang Tsung. With the amulet in his possession, Kano came to realization that he was now in total control of the revived undefeatable army. Rather than hand the amulet and the army over to Shang Tsung, Kano kept them for himself, and used the army to ambush Sonya, ending their long rivalry once and for all. Ending: (MKA) For months the Red Dragon had kept Kano hidden in their mountain stronghold, an unwilling test subject for a new process designed to transform humans into dragons. Kano escaped, however, before they could finish. Infused with godlike essence from Blaze; the process was rejuvenated. Kano was transformed into a black dragon-human hybrid. /////////////////////////////////////////////////////// 4.
