About Conán

Before being titled as the Elder Gods' Champion, Conán was a indigenous Earthrealm warrior of the Celtic Clan, rivals of the Lin Kuei, Red Dragon, Black Dragon, and Shirai Ryu alike. 

After a rival clan attacked his village, Conán exiled himself. In search of answers, he wondered Earthrealm until he was visited by the Thunder God, Raiden and was invited to participate in a tournament created by the Elder Gods to assist in stabilizing the realms. Since then, he's felt that he's owed Raiden his life.
