The persona of Sub-Zero is actually shared by two Chinese half-cyromancers who were kidnapped and brainwashed into serving the Lin Kuei assassin clan as children. Fierce warrior Bi-Han was framed and undeservedly punished by death for the massacre of Scorpion's ninja clan and family, and Bi-Han's much more heroic and noble little brother, Kuai Liang, continued the legacy of Sub-Zero to honor him.

Abilities and equipmentEdit

Sub-Zero is a half-cyromancer, which means he has incredibly potent cyrokinesis. This ability also lets him spawn ice weaponry like Kori Blades or Frost Hammers from thin air. He is, as a ninja and Mortal Kombat character, an amazing martial artist, acrobat, and has a superhuman prowess.
