Tanya was the daughter of Edenia's ambassador to new realms. Although her father was devoted to peace, Tanya held within her the capacity for evil. She had been raised during the time when Shao Kahn had ruled Edenia, and was still tainted by his evil. She became aware of the falled Elder god Shinnok, who was attempting to gain control of the entire Outworld. Disguising his forces as a band of refugees, she tricked Queen Sindel into allowing Shinnok through the portal to Edenia. The once free realm of Edenia came under the rule of Shinnok, and Tanya pledged her loyalty to the evil master. She tricked Liu Kang into coming to the Outworld by pretending to be a friend of Princess Kitana's. However, Tanya was defeated and believed killed when a trap she set for Liu Kang backfired.
