Sindel was a queen but her reign of happiness was shattered when Shao Kahn took over her land. Horrified that she might lose it all, Sindel betrays and kills her husband, Jerrod and instead swears fealty to Shao Kahn and offers to be his queen. Shao Kahn accepts and in a rare show of mercy, decides to spare Sindel’s daughter, Kitana’s, life.

But, her  happiness was destroyed when her husband is murdered by an unknown party and everything turns to chaos.
