With the power of Blaze within him, Baraka would never again serve
another. Summoning Shao Kahn and Onaga before him atop the pyramid, he
gave them a choice: Submit to Lord Baraka or die. They responded by
attacking the Tarkatan. In a flash, Baraka's blades grew to twice their
normal length and pierced his former masters through their hearts.
Flinging their bodies down the side of the pyramid, Baraka turned his
attention to a more important matter: Who would be his queen? He gave
Mileena a choice. She chose wisely.
