Baraka was sent to quell the uprising renegade race in Outworld's lower regions.
After his victorious battle, the nomadic warrior returns to fight on the side of
villainy. Under the guidance of Shao Kahn, Baraka will once again pose a formidable
threat to his Earthen counterparts.
When Baraka's failure to apprehend several Earth warriors nearly results in Shao
Kahn's demise, the nomad finds himself fearing for his own life. He falls out of
favor with his emperor, and realizes that it's only a matter of time before Kahn
enacts revenge. Baraka remains loyal until the opposition from the Earth Realm has
been defeated. With Kahn in a weakened state from his battle with Rayden, Baraka strikes. The despondent emperor is no match for Baraka's attack. Then, fearing
reprisal from those loyal to Kahn, Baraka escapes back into nomadic ruins from
which he came.
