Once a member of the super secret White Lotus Society, Liu Kang left the organization in order to represent Shaolin temples in the Tournament. Kang is strong in his beliefs and despises Shang Tsung.
After defeating mighty Goro and putting an end to Shang Tsung's rule over the Tournament, Kang is able to return the contest to its rightful hosts - the Shaolin temples. Kang's heroics will always be remembered. He will continue the traditions of the Shaolin temples and restore the true pride and respect of this once great tournament.
