Somewhere in the northern most parts of Asia, there exists a secret clan of assassins and thieves known as the Lin Kuei. This group has existed for centuries and thrives on the evil intention of the people who pay for their services. Its warriors are chosen at birth to be raised apart from the workings of day to day civilization and are stripped of their former lives. Only the clan knows their existence. Each of them posses certain skills and abilities that set them apart from normal men. These abilities are passed on from generation to generation and honed throughout the experiences of life. Certain Lin Kuei warriors possess supernatural abilities including those that commune with nature.
They had two rivals: smaller assassin clans in the icy lands of Arctika called the Tengu clan and Snow Ninja.
Machine or man, you have a warrior's soul. As long as I am Grandmaster, the Lin Kuei will welcome you.

Being descended from a race of Outworld inhabitants known as Cryomancers, Kuai Liang has the innate ability to control ice in many forms. Throughout the span of the series, Sub-Zero's powers have continued to evolve. His deadly ability to freeze comes from the process of him absorbing the air around him and storing it before releasing it as a cold substance or simply lowering the temperature of the surrounding air to create ice constructs. He is naturally used to the cold temperatures of his turf and is able to resist other Cryomancers' freezing abilities as shown in the Mortal Kombat X comic series where Frost fails to freeze Sub-Zero's arms. His ability to freeze is strong enough to turn the body's water content, flesh and bone into brittle ice with just a single tap of his fingers. He has even surpassed his (late) brother Bi-Han's freezing ability, whose ice can reach temperatures up to -500° Fahrenheit which is way below absolute zero.
Aside from flash-freezing opponents, Sub-Zero also has the ability to instantly conjure up an ice statue of himself to act as both a scapegoat and a 'landmine' of sorts as any who touch it instantly flash freeze. He has created many different kinds of ice constructs for offense and defense. Such ice constructs include swords, daggers, hammers, axes, spears, shields, walls, spikes, statues and more. He is one of the characters that are more oriented on defense thanks to his ability to counter attacks by freezing melee attackers who come into contact with him and being able to create several defensive ice constructs that usually freeze on contact such as icy orb traps, ice clones, ice barriers and ice armor.

The man standing in front is not Sub-Zero, but many of them mistake him with Kuai Liang. He is knows as Absolute Zero and is also from Lin Kuei. His truth name is Dante. He dont have relationship with Bi-Han or Kuai Liang but still, is part of the cryomancers. Cryomancers were a race native to Edenia who had the ability to control, shape and manipulate ice. Were a race native to Edenia. For unknown reasons, they were banished from the kingdom by Queen Sindel and had to move to Outworld. During the earlier period of Shao Kahn's reign as emperor, it is believed that the majority of the population was exterminated, and as a result, it is believed that no pure Cryomancers survived into the present day. Appearance-wise, Cryomancers resemble humans, although their actual lifespan is unknown. Their most defining characteristic is that they have the ability to control the moisture in the air around their bodies and cool it into ice, as such, they have the ability to control and manipulate ice. As a result, Cryomancers can use their powers in combat and even form weapons shaped out of ice. Additionally, some Cryomancers seem to have a covering of frost or ice forming on their arms. This particular characteristic may be a result of age as well as level of cryomancy, as the most well known Cryomancer, Kuai Liang, developed this feature only recently, whereas Bi-Han, who was killed at a younger age, and Frost, a younger and less powerful Cryomancer both lacked/lack this feature, however this is purely speculation. Most likely, this is just an ability Sub-Zero uses to strengthen his blows, as he is seen without the ice-sheet in his costumes in Mortal Kombat: Deception. Although, a major factor that contributes to this empowering is the ancient artifact known as the Dragon Medallion, which possesses the power to enhance a Cryomancer's powers to their maximum potential. Some Cryomancers are shown to have very pale skin that varies to an ice-blue toned complexion, a trait shared by Kuai Liang after his interaction with the Dragon Medallion, and his apprentice, Frost. It is possible that the pure Cryomancers shared this trait.
