Kurtis Stryker is a former New York Police Department officer, who alongside his partner, the former Black Dragon, Kabal fought against criminals, terrorists and drug-lords. His routine changed the day Shao Kahn invaded Earthrealm with the help of Kazuya Mishima. Being one of the only ones capable of defeating the invaders, Raiden saw in Stryker a warrior, and choose him, alongside Stryker, to defend his realm as a member of the Defenders of the Realm. After they won, Stryker disbanded both from the NYPD and from the Defenders, becoming a vigilante who would show no mercy to the corrupt.
