Mortal Kombat Game Guide

II. KOMBATANTS
==============



BARAKA
------

Baraka is the fiercest of the Tarkatans, vicious nomadic mutants from the 
wastes of Outworld. Like all Tarkatan males, he joined Shao Kahn's army 
once he came of age and survived the brutal Ritual of Blood. He gained 
the rank of Enforcer after single-handedly defeating a rebel faction. His 
loyalty and strength make him a favorite of the emperor; his retractable 
blades have slain many of Shao Kahn's most bitter enemies. As a kontestant 
in the Mortal Kombat tournament, he will ensure his emperor's claim to 
Earthrealm.
