—Royce to Raiden on declining his offer
For as long as Royce could remember the burning rage what seeded within him Shao Kanh had nearly destroyed Edenia his beloved home.Years before this had happend he was the childhood friends of the Edenian Princess Kitana and her closest friend Jade they would often spend as much time as they could together in which Royce had treated them as sisters however this was difficult as he harbored feelings for Jade, however he soon grew out of as he didnt want to complicate the friendship this however became even more complicated as the years grew and the fact Shao Kahn had overthrown Onaga the infamous Dragon King and the rumours of Kahn preparing to invade Edenia, which soon turned out to be more factual than a rumour. After surviving the first attack Kahn had brought on Edenia he was rescued by Raiden who offered a place to be a defender of Earth and gain revenge however Royce wanted none of it, it was not his fight. After discovering Raidens forces had defeated Shao Kahn he went to Earthrealm in order to become something in his life for a short while he was a mercenary, for the Black Dragon clan however after he was forced to kill an innocent mother and her month old child Royce realized his mistake. For several hundred years Royce became a lonesome wonderer doing nothing but stop criminals praying on the innocent, working with several groups and suffered many betrayals including the Lin Kuei when controlled by the Grandmaster, Royce was promised his friend Smoke having his humanity restored if Royce collected an ancient rellic of great importance, for several painful weeks Royce returned and showed the amulet in which the Grandmaster snatched it and ordered Smoke to execute Royce, he narrowly escaped thanks to the assistance of the traitor Sub-Zero, thankful Royce gave Sub Zero an item of great importance to the Lin Kuei an ancient blade crafted by the founder of the Lin Kuei clan in which Zero had happily accepted, they soon parted ways however Zero had a feeling they would fight as allies once again, Royce again continued to travel and soon began to help with the rebuilding of Earth from the first attack, this is until Royce had heard of Shao Kahns return to conquer Earth feeling like he should become apart of something Royce contacted Raiden who eagerly accepted Royce as a defender of Earth, this is where he met Jade for the first time in many years. Royce instantly fell in love with her as did her however he refused to even hint any of it because he may not survive Shao Kahns forces, but even after becoming a hero for holding of several of Baraka's forces and assisting in Shao Kahn's defeat he still did not want to tell Jade this was until the form of the Deadly Alliance.
Personality and abilities
Royce has a sharp and slow trusting personality this is partly due to the fact he has had many betrayals in his life however he holds someones trust close and is willing to die for his friends as long as they survive. Somewhat a lone wolf Royce prefers to fight alone or in small groups however despite his leadership skills he refuses to lead as he never wants anyones death to be pinned upon him despite this his arrogance and cockyness can get the better of him however this can even enrage the most powerful of warriors including Shao Kahn in which he had enraged the warlord enough to make many mistakes in combat. Royce's abilities include the powers of fire and ice while not as powerful as Sub Zero or Scorpion, Royce can still use them to great extent however his powerful talent is his ability to manipulate his arm into a blade style weapon.

"Next time we fight I doubt it'll be less bloodshed"
"Bad day for a facial dont ya think?!"
A unique attribute to Royce is his arm blade while its unknown on how and when he was able to do this it appears to have happened sometime when he was hired by the Lin Kuei to collect the relic, on his travels to the relic he was attacked by an ancient beast a Blood Dragon which had attacked him without thought while Royce was able to repel the beast he was unable to kill it and he was critically injured in the process, as he awoke he had a strange feeling that something had happened in his lack on awareness and when he finally came to all he noticed was a scar on his arm
- The arm blade was inspired by Jack Krauser from Resident Evil 4
- I intended the ending to be longer however I couldnt think of a way to finish it
- The personality was somewhat inspired by myself
- I had a bit of a fan boy moment with Jade yes so what weve all done it....havent we?
