Sub Zero - Character Story 

In Mortal Kombat 11 Sub Zero is the Grandmaster of the Lin Kuei Clan. Kuai Liang beat death to redeem is clan for the evil committed by Sektor and Cyber Lin Kuei. He rebuilt the Lin Kuei and brokered peace with their Shirai Ryu rivals. Now, he hopes to finally close the book on sins of Lin Kuei past.

Before Mortal Kombat 11 - There are in fact two incarnations of Sub Zero, and they are siblings; older brother Bi-Han and younger brother Kuai Liang. Both are blue garbed warriors who at different times have used the codename "Sub-Zero", and both have served the Lin Kuei. Both are descended from Cryomancers, an Outworld race possessing the ability to generate and control the powers of ice. However, they were born in Earthrealm and only the younger Sub-Zero would discover his heritage. Kuai Liang bears a scar on his right eye which he received between the events of MK3; in the new timeline (as revealed in the Mortal Kombat X combat series), the scar was made by Kano. However, as seen in deception, the scar has faded away. This may have been caused by the Dragon Medallion's power. 

In their biography, both Sub Zero brothers were sons of a Cryomancer father an human mother. It is known that the father of both brothers was a secret operation live for the Lin Kuei in the United States. He married an American woman and together they had two sons. Against the will of their mother, the father took the sons with im to move back to China, and as such both brothers were trained as Lin Kuei asassins. This was later retconned as both brothers being kidnapped by the Lin Kuei when they were still children (this was revealed in Sub Zero's trailer in Mortal Kombat 2011).

Noob Saibot appeared as Sub Zero in the first Mortal Kombat, while Kuai Liang went by the codename "Tundra". After Noob Saibot was murdered by Scorpion during the tournament, Kuai Liang swore revenge on him. He mastered the art of ice and cold, and took his brother's former code name: Sub Zero. Driven by anger, Kuai Liang entered the Mortal Kombat Tournament with one goal: To destroy his brother's killer, and anyone else that gets in the way. 

Kuai Liang replaced Bi-Han as Sub Zero for the rest of the games - Bi-Han later was resurrected by Quan Chi and became the Netherrealm wraith Noob Saibot. The younger Sub Zero clearly shares many traits with his older brother, and was perhapds too similar to his brother upon his introduction. Like the elder, the younger Sub Zero gives the impression of being a stern, distant and cold an who goes about his business silently, without attracting unwanted attention. However, as time progressed, Sub Zero evolved from what fans labeled a "carbon copy" of his brother into a man of great integrity and self-discipline. The disparities between the brothers, who were once neutral and almost indistinct from each other, have now grown so large that one could speak of the evil twin sydrome.

While the younger Sub Zero was depicted as a young Lin Kuei warrior who was living in the shadow of his older brother, he has since changed and grown into a warrior who has progressed towards the more humane sides of moral issues. This change in characteristics has not only strengthened him as a man, but has also set him apart from his former Lin Kuei counterparts. This included leaving his clan in disgust and breaking the scared codes of honor, joining the rebellion against Shao Kahn and assisting Raiden and Lui Kang along with Earthrealm's other chose warrior). More recently, he defeated the cyborg  assassin known as sektor after the events of Mortal Kombat Gold to gain the leadership of the Lin Kuei and become the Grandmaster, where he has grown even stronger and more powerful. He is a dependable ally of Earthrealm who is willing to assist when needed, especially when Raiden gives the call. He is, without question, one of the greatest and most powerful warriors that Earthrealm has to offer. He, like much of the MK cast, follows a character archetype. In his case, he is the enigmatic hero that shows up to aid the main hero(es) when needed.
