Killed in the shockwave of Blaze's violent death, Hsu Hao's corrupt soul
descended into the Netherrealm. As his soul began to regain a physical
body, Hsu Hao became his true self: a demon of emptiness and desolation.
Leading an Oni horde, he defeated Shinnok and his minions. He now sits
upon the throne of the Netherrealm.
