In Konquest mode, the Tengu Clan attacks Taven, mistaking him for one of the two outsiders: Noob Saibot and Smoke who had earlier attacked his men near the obelisk. Wu Lae, the leader of the Tengu, asserts that he thought Taven was a member of the Lin Kuei, a rival clan of which the Tengu share an uneasy truce with. He continues by saying that they reside in a temple close by, and warns of their in-hospitality.
