Humanoids live to kill. Without a common enemy to fight, they divide. Destroy each other. Insectoids live to survive. No conflicts divide us. We build upon each other. Kin does not kill kin.

First father, then daughter.... Will they taste the same?

D'Vorah is a female member of the a sentient colonial race called the Kytinn. In the Arnyek Islands, she had an encounter with the emperor of Outworld Shao Kahn, and had to kneel to him in order to spare her people for slavery. After the death of the emperor, she sided with his daughter Mileena, who would be later overthrown and took over by Kotal Kahn. Despite her respect for the current emperor, she was secretly operating for decades as a spy for Quan Chi and later as Shinnok's primary enforcer.

One among many Kytinn, a swarm of sentient insects who share a hive mind. D'vorah has served Shao Kahn, Kotal Kahn, and Shinnok, but her true allegiance is to the swarm. She lies, cheats, and backstabs so that when everyone else has died, the Kytinn hive will survive.
