~ Noob Saibot

Bi-Han, later known as Noob Saibot, is a wraith and minor villain from the Mortal Kombat series. He first came to being in Mortal Kombat as Sub-Zero, then as Noob Saibot in Mortal Kombat II.


In life, Bi-Han was a cold-blooded and violent assassin in the Lin Kuei known as Sub-Zero. He was invited to attend the Mortal Kombat tournament hosted by Shang Tsung. Though he and his fellow Lin Kuei, the soon-to-be cyborgs Cyrax and Sektor, accepted the offer as their order was approached with a contract for the sorcerer's head. Bi-Han was killed by Scorpion, who believed Bi-Han murdered his family and clan during the Shirai Ryu massacre. Death was not the end for Bi-Han, however, as the evil in his heart from his deeds as an assassin brought him to the 5th Plane of the Netherrealm to face a terrible fate unknown even to the thunder god Raiden, where he was resurrected by the demon sorceror Quan Chi. Purged of his humanity, Bi-Han was reborn as the wraith known as Noob Saibot, where he would serve as one of Quan Chi's enforcers and assassins for the rest of eternity.
