Smoke, a member of the Lin Kuei clan, was a life-long friend of the second Sub-Zero. When his friend journeyed to the Outworld to join Shao Kahn's tournament, Smoke followed but did not participate. When he and Sub-Zero returned to the Lin Kuei headquarters, they discovered that the clan had decided to entech several of it's assassins to combat the Outworld menace. Two had volunteered for the process, but the clan asked Smoke and Sub-Zero to undergo the process as well. They both refused, and found themselves fleeing from their own clan. Sub-Zero managed to escape, but Smoke was captured and turned into a cyborg. He was reborn in a new metal body, and unlike his counterparts Cyrax and Sektor managed to retain his soul through the process. He was given orders to find Sub-Zero and bring him back to undergo entechment. When he found his old friend, his soul was able to overcome his programming and he joined Sub-Zero in the fight against the Outworld invaders. With their victory, the world was saved, but Smoke was forever trapped inside his mechanical body.
