Mama always said, life's like an armed robbery. Never know who you're going to kill. Run, Kabal, run!
~ Kabal

Let's see what you're made of...
~ Kabal


Kabal was a loyal Operative of the Black Dragon clan, which abandoned his life of crime and put his fighting skills to more positive use. In original timeline he witnessed Shao Kahn stealing souls from Earthrealm and was later heavily scarred by his extermination squads. In the current one, he became a police officer and Kurtis Stryker's partner, during the Outworld invasion he is severely burned by Kintaro, which left him to wear a life support system.

Fleet-footed Black Dragon enforcer. Kabal's sprinting speed is only outpaced by his greed. He was a rookie cop until Kano tempted him to sell out his police department for cash money and a spot in the Black Dragon. Kabal has run down anyone who's crossed Kano ever since.
