Raised under the guidance of the Shirai Ryu Ninja clan, Hanzo Hasashi became a great ninja assassin in order to provide for his beloved Kana and their child Jubei. In time, Hanzo's skills in battle earned him the alias of "Sasori." But Hanzo's fate was sealed when he hired by Quan Chi to steal the sacred Map of Elements, killed by Bi-Han of the Lin Kuei. But Hanzo is brought back from the depths of the Netherrealm by Quan Chi, who expressed an interest in the man being unaffected by Netherrealm's hellfire. Hanzo is then imbued with hellfire while being told that his Quan Chi proceeds to imbue Hanzo with hellfire while stating that his family have been murdered during their clan's slaughter by the Lin Kuei. Taking on name of Scorpion, participates in Mortal Kombat as retainer of Quan Chi to seek out his killer and overseer of the massacre: The Lin Kuei assassin he only knew as Sub-Zero. Scorpion remained loyal to Quan Chi until learning that it was the necromancer himself behind the events of his death and personally murdered his wife and child.
