Hsu Hao is an evil,
deceptive Mongolian grappler who posed as a member of Red Dragon's intelligence
services to infiltrate the Special Forces. His sole purpose was to destroy
them after he had aided them in destroying the Black Dragon crime clan,
long-time rivals of Hsu Hao's Red Dragon. Instead of a heart, Hsu Hao has
a pulsating cybernetic implant that also enhances his strength. He follows
orders from his superior, Mavado,
with unquestioning obedience.
For the events on
Earthrealm leading up to Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, Hsu Hao was of
prime importance. His superior, Mavado, gave him orders to act as a Chinese
Secret Militant for the Special Forces and aid them in completely destroying
the Black Dragon clan. Hsu Hao carried out his instructions without question
and aided the U.S. Special Forces for years until the entire Black Dragon
clan were seemingly eradicated, after the death of Jarek.
Hsu Hao was called back to the Red Dragon headquarters at Charred Mountain
but later received orders from Mavado to stay within the Special Forces
HQ. He was then instructed to destroy their underground base and with it,
their only means of inter-realm travel. He armed a miniature nuclear weapon
and just escaped through the portal before it blew up.
As a result of his
betrayal, his former superior at the Special Forces, Jax, who just barely
escaped with his life, had a score to settle with him. After Mavado captured
and imprisoned Kano, Mavado sent
Hsu Hao to kill Shang Tsung under orders from Quan Chi. On his way to Tsung's
palace he was cornered and seemingly killed when his artificial heart was
ripped out by Jax.
