The swordsman Takahashi Kenshi spent his early adulthood searching the world for worthy opponents. When the sorcerer Shang Tsung duped him into retrieving the enchanted sword Sento from the Well of Souls, the result left Kenshi sightless. Humbled but with a new sense of purpose, Kenshi vowed to rid the realms of despicable creatures like Shang. He served Earthrealm admirably in its conflict with Netherrealm. In his post-war travels he met and fell in love with a young Thai-American woman. Eventually Kenshi's wanderlust returned and he departed. Years later he learned the woman had been murdered--leaving their eight-year-old son in Kenshi's care. The boy's mother's murder led Kenshi to entrust his son to Hanzo Hasashi, the former Scorpion, to raise as a warrior. Kenshi promised Hanzo he would return one day to reclaim Takeda. Together father and son would hunt down the boy's mother's murderer. Meanwhile Kenshi continues his itinerant ways, occasionally helping out his friend General Blade as a consultant to the Special Forces.
Having defeated Shinnok, Kenshi joined Takeda on his quest to avenge his mother Suchin's murder.
Their travels took them to a cave where he and Takeda freed a man, Taven, encased in a stalagmite.
Kenshi told Taven that his brother, Daegon, was the founder of the Red Dragon assassin clan.
Daegon had not only murdered Suchin, but his and Taven's parents as well.
Together, Kenshi, Takeda and Taven laid siege to the Red Dragon base.
Daegon fell victim to Kenshi's rage.
Suchin's murder had been avenged.
