Kira made her debut
in Mortal Kombat: Deception as the first of Kabal's
recruits for the new Black Dragon. Her background depicts her as having
the ability to take great risks. As well, she possess a rationality and
level-headedness that surpasses her fellow hot-blooded recruit, Kobra.
In-game, she utilized special moves and fighting styles imported directly
from Kano and Sonya's appearances in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance; as
a result, she was labeled as being an unoriginal character by the MK fanbase,
like in Jarek's case.
In the mountains of
Afghanistan, Kira had disguised herself as a man, and sold weapons to terrorist
organizations. During one such transaction in a cave, her gender was revealed,
and she had no choice but to fight her way out. Emerging victorious, she
encountered Kabal, who had been waiting outside to behold the victor. He
had decided to reconstitute the Black Dragon, and observing how Kira conducted
herself in executing her misdeeds in a cold and calculated fashion, he
was reminded of the Red Dragon, the organization from which the Black Dragon
split. Since the Black Dragon did not have this presence, Kabal offered
to make Kira his first recruit. Accepting, Kira devoted herself to her
new organization. She then went with Kabal to New York City to recruit Kobra.
