What an excellent start! Cyrax’s first quote surprised me and made me think of a more serious-angry character then the “kind of friendly and nice but still serious robot” Cyrax I know from the games (well, his MKG ending and MKDA bits made him feel a lot friendlier, and I guess it makes sense because it is a nice contrast when compared with Sektor).

I enjoyed this bio, too bad it was so short. I lol’ed at the “I was shocked to receive this data” and another fun part of the likes he mentioned. So Kahn is dead as well, maybe I read about that in Sonya’s bio but Im not so sure anymore.

“I understand now that a machine cannot truly comprehend the pleasure one can feel when a devious plot to stop one's enemies is enacted perfectly.” I also liked this part, very fitting for Cyrax.

I actually expected much more from him because of the hype I was given with Sonya’s bio and the Vampire references. I guess Nitara’s view of the situation will provide more info...or in Cyrax’s words, more data.

Good job once again!

lmao, you gave the first comment, glad you liked it! Cyrax's is short because I didn't want to give out all the information about him finding Nitara right away. I originally wanted to make these bios similar to the ones in MKDA (where you got the whole story from more than one bio from more than one character). Looking at this one as it is now though, I can't say that I would have changed it because it gets the point across; Cyrax has his plans and only Sonya, Jax, and Kenshi know what he is preparing to do.
I didn't want Cyrax to appear so friendly or warm because unlike Smoke, Cyrax volunteered to become a cyborg, and with his sense of duty, I felt that he needed to be a tougher individual and more machine-like compared to a human. I made Cyrax the median between the extremes of Smoke (longing for his humanity) and Sektor (rejecting his humanity).

I'll let you find that one out for yourself. wink
Cyrax's biography is very short, but his ending is probably the most important one of all the Earthrealm characters and the most defining of his character, so that balances it out. It's my favourite ending, and with that being said, I'm sure it'll be the best one, and the most surprising.

Cool! If his ending is the most important, Im guessing its going to have a lot of surprises and fan facts.

Too bad not too many people read fan fics here. These are all worth the time.

How is your Reiko story working so far? Any improvements since last time we talked?

Unfortunately, no fun facts; the endings will be as serious and dramatic as they need to be. Unlike the biographies, every ending will be written from the character's perspective in the present tense, so I won't be able to have the characters think up puns or anything, as for the most part, they'll be fighting for their lives. Of course, if I can do it and it's suitable, I'll bring out my sick sense of humour involving death and violence.
Spoilers: (Highlight to reveal)
I'm still deciding if I should make Cyrax's ending canon or not for my fan fictions, considering his has such a dramatic impact on the MK plot, but that probably won't matter too much depending on if I decide to make my own version of MK7.

As for the next coming bio, I've figured out a way to make it interesting for me and for everyone else reading it! I figured out what it was missing and am in the process of adding that stuff, so I no longer consider it my worst bio! tongue All I need is the time to write out most of it and finish it off...
