The ancient automaton Geras makes his return in the latest Mortal Kombat 1 character reveal trailer. A creation of the previous Keeper of Time, he convenes with the overseer of a new reality in dramatic new scenes. Take a look:

Geras wields the sands of time to pummel and pound his opponents into submission in new gameplay, but its his relationship with Fire God Liu Kang that makes his return especially interesting. The new timeline has made them allies over eons, but Geras warns that bending destiny towards peace may have already compromised it!

Geras made his debut in Mortal Kombat 11, where his limitless abilities to undo injury left him sinking indefinitely into the Sea of Blood, after fighting Raiden and his forces on behalf of his creator - The Keeper of Time, Kronika.

Geras appears to be a friend to Liu Kang in this new timeline of the Fire God's creation, but as outlined in character bios, his manipulations have overlooked an enemy he could never have anticipated. Does Geras bring warning of this new threat -- or is the eternal android a part of it?
