[change | change source]

Kitana appeared for the first time in the Mortal Kombat II (1993) game, where she is shown as a royal from Edenia, a fictional realm (kingdom). In the game, she uses a pair of fans made of steel, also named tessenjutsu. Kitana uses these fans to make special attacks.

She was thought to be the daughter of Shao Kahn, the emperor of the Outworld. However, Kitana later learns her true father was murdered by Kahn when he conquered Edenia. Later on, she becomes an important hero as she joins warriors of the Earthrealm to make sure her realm is freed. Kitana is the love interest of hero Liu Kang.
