What Happened To Rain – Mortal Kombat
As a child, Rain was smuggled away from his homeland of Edenia in the midst of the realm’s takeover by Outworld emperor Shao Kahn, while his father stayed behind to perform his duties as general of Edenia’s armies, but he was killed and his armies crushed in the invasion. Thousands of years later, during the events of MK Trilogy, Rain resurfaced during Kahn’s invasion of Earthrealm prior to the third Mortal Kombat tournament, and was attacked by Kahn’s extermination squads; not wanting to suffer at their hand, he elected to turn his back on his homeland and side with Kahn, who trained him as an assassin alongside fellow Edenians Kitana and Jade before enlisting them in the fight against the Earth warriors. However, Kahn’s would-be domination of Earthrealm is unsuccessful and Rain is absent from the series until the training mode of Mortal Kombat: Deception (2004), where he asks Shujinko to find a dagger belonging to Goro, which he in turn keeps for himself until he is knocked out by Jade.
Mortal Kombat: Armageddon (2006) marks Rain’s return as a playable character after a decade, as he is selectable along with the series’ then-entire roster. As one of only seventeen characters in the game to receive an official biography, he plays his largest role in the original series continuity by learning of his true Edenian heritage from evil Outworld sorcerer Quan Chi, who informs Rain that he is a direct descendant of Argus, the protector god of Edenia, as well as the half-sibling of the game’s protagonist Taven and his brother Daegon, both of whom were favored by their father to assume his mantle of Edenia’s protectors. Rain consequently starts to refer to himself as a prince of the realm, as seen in Armageddon’s training mode, but he still chooses to independently fight on the side of evil. He confronts Taven in the fictional location of Arctika but is defeated in battle and flees into a portal.
His storyline is altered in the 2011 Mortal Kombat reboot, which makes no mention of his father or siblings, instead describing him as having been orphaned at a young age by Kahn’s conquest of Edenia and raised under the protection of Edenian resistance fighters. As he gained a reputation as an exceptional warrior, his level of arrogance followed suit, and when he was refused leadership of the resistance, he betrayed them to their (unidentified) sworn enemy. This caught the attention of Kahn, who offered the power-hungry Rain an army of his own in exchange for his services. However, in Rain’s ending, Kahn had no intention of fulfilling his end of the bargain. Rain therefore kills him in combat and ends up saving Earthrealm in the process, for which he is thanked by Raiden, who also informs him that he is the son of Argus. Rain, consequently drunk with power to which he felt he was entitled, coupled with a sense of superiority from being the offspring of a god, takes over Kahn’s armies to rule all realms, starting, to Raiden’s horror, with Earthrealm.
Rain is not playable in Mortal Kombat X (2015), but appears in the game’s story mode. He serves as Mileena’s advisor and tries to help her reclaim the Outworld throne from the warlord Kotal Kahn in the midst of a civil war. Rain plans to take the throne for himself when the war is over but is stopped by D’Vorah. He is featured in Tanya’s noncanonical arcade ending, in which he and Tanya flee Kotal Kahn’s forces in Outworld but are captured. She turns him over to Kahn in exchange for clemency, resulting in Rain being burned at the stake.
Rain will return in Mortal Kombat 11 as part of the Kombat Pack 2 DLC.
