Lai is a fictional fan-made character in the Mortal Kombat series.


Lai originally had a dark past and lived a life of crime. He was part of an evil organization (presumably the Black Dragon). But like Kabal, he realizes that the clan didn't benefit him so he decided to relieve himself of the evil that burdens him so. He went to Nightwolf for spirit cleansing and became a force of good.

Lai then became a member of the White Lotus society along Liu Kang and Kung Lao when he heard about his ancenstors who were members of this ancient organization. He was thought to be killed when the tarkattan horde attacked the Wu Shi Academy in between the events of Mortal Kombat 1 and 2. But he somehow survived and managed to hide from his fellow monks such as Liu Kang and Kung Lao, wanting them to believe he's dead. And when Raiden sends the message to his past self, Lai realizes the Earth must be in immense danger and decides to come out of hiding to reuite with his former allies. Lai swears revenge on Baraka and vows to kill him now that he's out of hiding.
