The Edenian Resistance, (also known as the Edenian Resistance Movement, Edenian Freedom Fighters, but originally known as the Edenian Knights) is an ancient and current military government within the majestic realm of Edenia led by its current general and decorated member, Jade, a highly dedicated patriot of Edenia and childhood friend of Princess Kitana. The main objective of the Edenian Resistance is to ensure the safety, freedom, justice and security of Edenia.
Their typical duties are enforcing law and order, protecting the royal family of Edenia that is Queen Sindel and her daughter Princess Kitana, and defending its citizens from local and foreign harm. Daily, they continue to guard the feudal monarchy that governs Edenia, preserving order, peace, and democracy within their civilization, and are highly reliable to protect the people from harm. They are known for kombating many otherworldly invasions, which includes tyrants such as Shao Kahn, Shinnok and Onaga. The Edenian Knights are also known for their diplomatic missions and securing peace treaties and relationships between the realms, including the already perfect and secure civilization of Seido and the native races of Outworld, including the Centaurians and the Shokans.
Kitana's non-canonical Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe ending reveals that the defeat of Shao Kahn left Outworld without a ruler. As such, Princess Kitana and her fellow Edenian Resistance fighters seek refuge in Earthrealm where they are given Shang Tsung's Island which they rename "Argus Island" in honor of their deity, Argus. There, they live free from the sight of mortals and turn the island into a bastion of beauty and light as well as a place of refuge. It appears they consist mostly of females.
