Ermac was created with dark magicks by the former emperor of Outworld, Shao Kahn. He is a collection of souls, those of the thousands of warriors vanquished in Shao Kahn's conquest of Edenia. After Shao Kahn's death, Ermac remained loyal to subsequent Outworld emperors: first Shao Kahn's chosen successor, Mileena, then the usurper, Kotal Kahn. He is now a key component in the emperor's efforts to quell Mileena's rebellion.
Alone once more, Ermac searched the labyrinthine corridors of Shao Kahn's old fortress--searching for the source of a faint voice calling to him.
Suddenly a wisp of dust brushed his chest, wrenching free one of his many souls.
The dust took the form of a man, who began to consume soul after soul.
As the weakened Ermac stared helplessly, he recognized the mysterious figure:
the sorcerer Shang Tsung. Returned from death.
