"Captured by Shang Tsung, Sonya's special forces unit was taken hostage - their only hope was the tournament. Shang Tsung promised to release the entire team... only if she could win the contest. Her victory not only released her unit - but also put an end to the Black Dragon and Shang Tsung's powerful grip on the tournament."
