How Baraka joined the Tourney
Baraka was introduced as a mean, unforgiving, and unpredictable warrior in service of The Emperor Of Outworld, (Shao Kahn) in Mortal Kombat II. He belongs to a race of nomadic mutants, later revealed in Mortal Kombat: Deception to be called Tarkata, a crossbreed between vile Netherrealm demons and denizens of Outworld, apparently populating the vast wastelands of Outworld. Like most members of his race, Baraka possesses long blades extending from his forearms. Although he has had numerous incursions with the Earthrealm warriors, he does not appear to have any particular rivalry or hatred towards Earth or its inhabitants. As a loyal warrior, he fights for those whom he calls "master".
After Shao Kahn's death, Baraka loyally served Mileena. He heard of constant by the organization MIST to assassinate Mileena. After thwarting about fifty attempts, Baraka sensed of a female assassin who was been sent to kill Mileena. When first meeting her, she answered her name, Christie.
