This object is a bust of Scorpion from Mortal Kombat. The inspiration for this piece was taken from the new Mortal Kombat game: Mortal Kombat X which will be released on consoles soon. Scorpion is one of the oldest characters in Mortal Kombat being one of the first seven playable characters in the first game and featuring in all of the later games and making an appearence in the films. Scorpion has a rich back story, "Scorpion" is the code name of Hanzo Hasashi, formerly one of the finest warriors of the Shirai Ryu, a Japanese ninja clan. After he was killed by Sub-Zero, a member of a rival clan of Chinese assassins known as the Lin Kuei, Scorpion became a hellspawned revenant residing in Hell (later the Netherealm) and seeking vengeance against those responsible for the destruction of his clan and the death of his family. Although essentially neutral in allegiance, Scorpion will join forces with anyone who can assist his plans of revenge. He was once manipulated by Quan Chi, whom he promised his life in exchange for his impressive combat abilities in order to defeat Sub-Zero.
