Pre-Mortal KombatEdit

Rain is from the ancient realm of Edenia. He hails as the child of Argus, Edenia's protector. It is currently unknown who his mother is, however Argus's shame of infidelity, caused him to exile Rain from his royal family. As a result, Rain was given to an unnamed, but key general, in the Edenian military. Rain is a demi-god, the son of a true god and an Edenian.

As a young boy, he bore witness to the invasion of his home world at the hands of Shao Kahn. During the chaos that ensued, Rain was smuggled away while his father stayed behind to perform his duties as a general in the Edenian army. Edenia's armies were crushed in the Outworld invasion, and Rain's adoptive father was subsequently killed by Kahn himself.

After that, he was rescued and raised by the Edenian Resistance following his adoptive father's death. He trained hard under their tutelage and turned into an elite, but arrogant fighter. He served the Resistance well for many years and he was denied his own command. Infuriated, he betrayed his own brethren and joined his mortal enemy, Shao Kahn, who promised Rain leadership of his own army.

His actions may have began before the events of the 1st Mortal Kombat tournament. Rain planned to retrieve the enchanted dagger of the royal Shokan family. It was stated that Shao Kahn has enlisted him to retrieve the dagger for his own purposes, but Rain actually plans on keeping it for himself. Eventually, he found and kept the dagger for himself.

Mortal Kombat 3Edit

013 Rain MK3

Rain during the Outworld Inavsion.

Several years later, Rain mysteriously returned during the invasion of Earthrealm. He aided Kahn in his plans for the conquest of Earthrealm. Trained in the art of kombat, Rain fought whole-heartedly to destroy Earth's warriors but his Princess Kitana informed him about the true death of his adoptive father; that he was killed by Kahn's own hands. Because of this, he joins the Earthrealm warriors. After being absent during an extermination squad attack, he embarks on a suicide mission to destroy Shao Kahn in order to prove his questioned loyalty. Unfortunately, this did not last.

Mortal Kombat: ArmageddonEdit

Rain versus

Rain during the Battle of Armageddon.

Years later, Rain returned once again during the Battle of Armageddon. Rain learned of his true Edenian heritage. Quan Chi informed Rain that he is actually a direct descendant to Argus, the protector god of Edenia. Rain then started to refer to himself as a prince of the realm, as seen in Armageddon's Konquest mode, but he still chooses to fight on the side of evil, although he no longer serves Shao Kahn. He wishes to kill both Taven and Daegon in order to be able to win the ultimate prize and power promised from defeating Blaze. Rain confronts Taven in Arctika, but he is beaten in battle, eventually escaping in a watery portal.

He later joined the Forces of Darkness and died in the Battle of Armageddon, as his body can be seen at the middle steps of the pyramid.
