Sub-Zero needed a remote base of operations for his newly reformed Lin Kuei clan. After a long search, he found this mysterious and ancient temple abandoned and frozen in the arctic wilderness and immediately claimed it as the new home of the Lin Kuei clan.
OverviewEditIn Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, after Taven learned from a group of monks and their abbot that it was built to honor the "Lady of Flame," which is his mother Delia, he enters the long forgotten temple and fights various Lin Kuei warriors. After entering a room, he finds an ice coffin and accidentally breaks it, awakening Frost, who was sealed inside the coffin. Frost quickly attacks Taven, but is defeated and she leaves the chamber.
Taven continues, but is confronted by Sub-Zero. Before the outcome of the battle could be decided, Sub-Zero takes notice of the dragon tattoo he had on his face, commenting that it was similar to the one on the unopened vault door behind him. Taven, however, tries to open the door and succeeds. He acquires the armor his mother left for him. Sub-Zero comments that the second vault door had been opened long ago, before his new Lin Kuei had even arrived.
Before Taven could make sense of this revelation and what it meant for his brother Daegon, the Lin Kuei Palace was invaded and attacked once again, only this time by an army of demonic ninjas, led by Noob Saibot and Smoke. The two fighters eventually team up as Taven and Sub-Zero defeat Noob Saibot and Smoke. After Noob's defeat, Sub-Zero tells Taven that Noob Saibot is actually his older brother, who was corrupted in the Netherrealm after his death. Sub-Zero also informs Taven about a mysterious clan known as the Red Dragon, whose location is in Charred Mountain.
