Who is The Krypt guy?

Out of all the posts I'm reading from everyone involving the krypt I have yet to come across anyone talking about the krypt guy himself. Who is he? Does he tie into the lore/universe of MK? If so how? Will he be a new playable character at some point? Is there a familiar face behind that mask? Or is he just a throwaway? Countless question surround this island explorer. Theories? Ideas?

I like the look of him, I'd be ok with him being a new fighter/character/DLC whatever.

That said, I'm still hoping we'll get Blanche one day :P

Words do not win wars. That is a tragedy.

I think one of the Netherrealm guys said he was a descendant of Shujinko's pal Apep

Should have just let people play as Shujinko. You know back when MK was starting to branch out during the Midway days before gaming became what it is now nad the MK Team became NRS and basically WB's fighting game cash cow. It would have been cool to see Shujinko be the sort of spin off game protagonist. Like any adventure game would mainly star him and flesh out the Konquest story a bit more because honestly it comes across more as a jumbled abridged tail of his story. It would be nice to see it told without all the silly training mode concessions and fan services.

On topic, as it stands right now he's just a generic player avatar.

May sound unrealistic but I hope he turns out to be Rain and he'll be playable once you unlock everything in the Krypt.

Krypt > Graveyard "Rain can be found in the graveyard." Kombat Kode message from UMK3?

Noob actually has a "Time will lead us to Saibot." reference in one of his intros. Might be a mirror match.

But yeah, they said the Krypt Kharakter was related to Apep.

Wonder if Apep ever recovered from that bad kimchee he ate.

My son and I have a theory that is. If you notice you have the ability to use other ninjas weapons or powers. Therefore the only character it should turn out to be is......chameleon.

When I saw him in the trailer I thought he was Erron Black.

Whoever he is, I wonder if he'll become Shang Tsung's new body?

"Hey, great job exploring my Krypt! I'll be posessing you now :)"

I also like his appearance very much and I would not mind if it was a new fighter or character.

I have created a whole story line for the next title in my MK MMORPG idea it Involves Apep. The URL is in my Signature check it out it might intrigue your interest The 1st chapter will sum up basically everything.
