Kitana UMK3 Art Kitana from Mortal Kombat Kitana MKX Mortal Kombat X Official Art Wallpaper

Kitana, Princess Kitana from the Realm of Edenia is one of the most popular Mortal Kombat characters, and also one of the most female fighting game characters besides Chun Li, Mai Shiranui, and of course Jade and Mileena.

She debuted in 1993 in Mortal Kombat 2 developed by Midway Games and returned in almost all of the sequels including the crossover game Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe (2008) as well as the latest Mortal Kombat game, Mortal Kombat XI (2019). Unique is her weapon, a pair of fans made of steel, almost no other video game characters are using similar weapons.

In the games she is actually around 10000 years old and the daughter of Sindel who is used by Shao Kahn for his plans. She was raised by Shao Kahn as his daughter and trained to be an assassin for him, but when she finds out the truth about her real father and Mileena she joins Raiden and the Earthrealm warriors to fight against the Outworld Emperor. In other games, she fights against evil as well.

A relationship between Kitana and Liu Kang was hinted at a few times in the games but nothing ever developed it seems.
