—Morpheus' Battle Cry


Morpheus is the conception of a human woman, whose life was tormented, making her killing herself. Morpheus was "born" as a fetus and growing inside the darkest corner of hell, Coccitus, where Lucifer was ruling. Wandering the Netherrealm, Morpheus learned the secrets of the homeworld he was living in. Over the age, he learned the brimstone spell in order to defeat Lucifer's army and Lucifer himself. After a fierce fight with the Lord of Hell, he was finally defeated and killed. Morpheus became the Heir of the Circles of Hell. After his victory, Quan Chi, an evil sorcerer challenged Morpheus to a fight, resulting in Morpheus' defeat. He survived the attack he attended, but he was forever banished in to the realm of mortals, Earthrealm. Raiden, God of Thunder, was looking for brave warriors to join him in his fight against the forces of Outworld. Raiden founds Morpheus, who is full of hatred to Quan Chi. Morpheus accepted Raiden's offer, and joined his forces.

Mortal Kombat Tournament

After joining the Forces of Light, Morpheus was still investigating where Quan Chi could hide, but without succes. But hope rised before his eyes, when he heard that a fighting tournament will take place on Earthrealm held by Shang Tsung. If Shang Tsung was there, Quan Chi was indeed. Morpheus attended the contest, beating out every kombatant in his way, even they were in the good side or the bad side, he never killed anyone. Until he met Quan Chi face to face. Morpheus used every power he learned, but he failed to beat him. Because his failure, Quan Chi tried to take him to the Emperor Shao Kahn to collect his soul, but with rage in his veins and mind, Morpheus escaped Quan Chi's stun spell, weakening the sorcerer, but Quan Chi being full of surprises, he temporary blinded Morpheus while he escaped to his Emperor. Morpheus knows that he failed to kill him, but now he knows ways to kill the sorcerer. Morpheus witnessed the victory of Liu Kang against the Shokan Prince, Goro and the sorcerer Shang Tsung, giving him time to go to the Outworld alone investigating the whereabouts of Quan Chi's stronghold.


Morpheus' Alternate Costume


Due to his life spent in the depths of the Netherrealm, Morpheus' skin has the texture of a zombie. In his chest, an upside-down pentagram is carved in the center, aquired from learning the Pagan magic. Also an effect of his powers is the unusual spikes grown from his shoulder and half of his forearm, also on his back. His face was never revealed because he wears long yellow dirt bandages covering his face and neck but the only visible feature of his face is his right red glowing eye. On his left arm, he wears maroon red bandages and a dark red arm protector. And on his right arm, he has the same thing but in addition he wears a skull of an Orochi Hellbeast with a pentagram on it's skull. He wears black trousers with a short ripped mage "skirt", a leather belt wore in a "punk fashion" along with a Oni head and dark red colored leg protectors.

Alternate Costume

New to Morpheus' attire are the pieces of the ancient Immortal armor. His left arm is fully covered in a spiral tattooed arm protector (still having the Orochi skull), but his right arm is only covered at his forearm by a metal arm protector with Latin symbols. His right bicep is covered with a breastplate. His low part remains the same with the addition of a bronze belt holding a golden with a ruby amulet, holding the souls of those tormented, who is granting the user increased strenght. Morpheus still has his bandages but his face is half revealed being a ripped apart skull with only his teeth visible. He wears half of the mask which comes along with the armor and like previously, only his right eye is visible.


Morpheus utilizes his learned brimstone spells in combination with a spell he created which is a spike morphing.
