How Kai joined the Tourney

Kai fought alongside Oogway as close friends, but after he learned how to steal the chi of others, Oogway banished him to the Spirit Realm. Five hundred years later, he returned to the mortal realm as a Spirit Warrior and sought to steal the chi from every kung fu master and destroy Oogway's legacy. With the help of his jombies, he nearly accomplished his goal, but he was eventually defeated and destroyed by Po.

Months after, Kai is returned to life by Shinnok. Kai then sets out make him self stronger with the stolen chi of those from Pars and Lusitania, starting with Elam.
