American cosplayer Kristen Hughey goes green and tackles one of the most sexy characters to ever adorn a fighting game franchise – bringing to life none other than the deadly temptress with a staff, Jade!
Starting out life as an unplayable secret character in Mortal Kombat II, Jade has since moved on to become a popular character in her own right.
In Mortal Kombat, the 2011 reboot of the series, Jade is a member of the Edenian noble family that served Shao Kahn once he conquered their realm. Given to Shao Kahn when she was still just a child, she has undergone years of rigorous training and service as an assassin for Shao Kahn, earning a reputation as an agile and stealthy warrior, and eventually awarded the position of a bodyguard to Princess Kitana.
Which is probably a good thing seeing as she is also noted to be one of most powerful characters in the series gameplay-wise.
