Official Biography of Takeda Takahashi in Mortal Kombat X:

Takahashi Takeda is the son of the hero Kenshi and a young Thai-American woman named Suchin, whom Kenshi met during his travels. When Suchin passed away, Kenshi was shocked to learn he had an eight-year-old son with her. He took Takeda to Hanzo Hasashi, the former Scorpion, to be instructed in the martial arts. Takeda had no contact with his father for many years, until the day he was to leave Hanzo’s tutelage. Kenshi revealed that he had left Takeda with Hanzo to protect him from his mother’s murderers. Despite this revelation, and subsequent reconciliation with Kenshi, Takeda has abandonment issues yet to overcome–which makes working with his father in Johnny Cage’s Special Forces team a challenge at times.”

Takeda’s ending in Mortal Kombat X:

“With Shinnok defeated, Takeda and his father set out to find his mother’s killer, a member of the Red Dragon clan. Special Forces tech enable Takeda to locate the clan’s base and disguise himself and Kenshi as they infiltrated their way into their ranks. Deep within the mountain stronghold, Takeda discovered an actual dragon, a prisoner of the clan. The creature used its magic to divine the murderer’s name, then transport Takeda and Kenshi to a faraway cave. There they discovered a man encased in a stalagmite. The dragon had said that this man would also have reason to confront Suchin’s killer. Takeda began to free him…”
