Edenia Deception

Edenia (Mortal Kombat: Deception)

Edenia is a realm in the Mortal Kombat video game series.

About Edenia Edit

Edenia is a realm of nobility and paradise. As its name suggests, the world of Edenia is one closely resembling the garden of Eden. It is a very fertile world, and its inhabitants seem to age much more slowly than normal humans would. They also appear to be preoccupied intensely with magic. It is said that Edenian's long life span, strength, magical powers, and nobility are due to being descendants of gods. It is a feudal monarchy much like most other realms in the Mortal Kombat universe. For many thousands of years, it was merged with Outworld after being defeated in Mortal Kombat. However, Edenia has recently become an independent realm again. Of all realms, it appears to be closest to Earthrealm in terms of environment and population.

The earliest known ruler of Edenia was King Jerrod. His best warriors lost ten Mortal Kombat tournaments in a row to the warriors of Outworld's ruler, Shao Kahn. By the rulings of the Elder Gods, this granted Kahn the power to invade Edenia. Outworld won the subsequent war and Edenia was annexed. To legitimise himself, Kahn forced Queen Sindel into a marriage and adopted her daughter Kitana, among other members of the royal household while personally slaying Jerrod. In the wake of Shao Kahn's defeat at the hands of Liu Kang 10,000 years later, Edenia would be freed from its merger with Outworld by Kitana. With brief intermezzos of war and abduction by evil forces, Sindel has been Edenia's queen ever since.

Locations within this realm include :

Native realm species Edit

Edenians are human in appearance, though they live much longer, just like people from Seido, with whom they share the greatest resemblance. The skin tones of Edenians vary from white to black, but darker skin tones seem to be more prevalent. Apparently, the people of Edenia are descendents of the gods which accounts for their long life span, nobility, and power.

Notable residents Edit

  • Sindel, Queen of Edenia. At various times in Edenia's short history after its freedom from Outworld, her rule has been interrupted by usurpers such as Shinnok and Onaga.
  • Kitana, princess and heir apparent of Edenia. She is also the leader of the realm's armed forces, and is known for her maverick points of view regarding Edenia's safety. Like her mother, she has remained single, despite offering to share her throne with Liu Kang.
  • Rain was kidnapped by Shao Kahn as a child. Later, he resurfaces as one of Shao Kahn's soldiers, Kitana has tried to convince him to betray Shao Kahn, alas to no avail. Prior to Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, Rain discovered that he was the child of Edenian Protector God, Argus.
  • Jade is a secret servant of the Edenian Throne, as stated in MKD's Konquest. Though originally loyal to Shao Kahn, Jade has proven her loyalty to the royal family time and again. She is also Kitana's best friend.
  • Tanya comes from a family of diplomants and ambassadors and used her persuasive powers more than once to betray Edenia to the forces of darkness. She is highly intelligent and skilled in black magic.
  • Taven is the son of the Protector God of Edenia who was hidden on Earth as part of a prophecy to prevent Armageddon.
  • Daegon is the younger brother of Taven. Like Taven, he was hidden on Earth, however he was awakened prematurely and went mad. He is the founder of the Red Dragon clan.
  • Argus was the God and Guardian of Edenia, and father of Taven , Daegon, and Rain.
  • Delia was an Edenian sorceress who foresaw Armageddon. She is the mother of Taven and Daegon.
  • Jerrod, King of Edenia, Husband to Sindel and Father to Kitana. He was murdered by Shao Kahn himself during Kahn's takeover of Edenia.

Relationships with other realmsEdit

There is no doubt since Earthrealm helped free Edenia from Kahn's grasp that the people of Edenia see the Earthrealm as an ally. There is some question about the Realm of Order, though; Edenians seem to consider them an ally. However, they are fully aware of how repressive the Orderrealm can be at times. Because of Outworld's conquest of Edenia, the two are definite foes so long as Kahn remains ruler. The only real attempt seen to make peace between them occurred during the beginning of MK4, when Kitana was in the process of trying to organize peace in the realm. Kung Lao's ending in MK:Gold shows the only sign that Kitana's attempts at peace were successful.

Trivia Edit

For some years, it was unknown among fans whether Edenia was Outworld's former name, before it became corrupted by Shao Kahn, or a true world in its own right. This misunderstanding was finally cleared up in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance.
