I'm still trying to figure out how Scorpion and Subzero being brothers in this timeline work. The Subzero brothers are Chinese and part of the Lin Kuei. Scorpion is Japanese, and a part of the knockoff Shirai Ryu clan.
I can see in this timeline one of the clans being founded before or during the game's story, but I don't see how they can be brothers if they are still of different nationalities.
Still, between Bi-Han and Hanzo of all people being brothers and Mileena and Kitana having a good relationship with each other, this timeline sure seems to be wanting to shake up the dynamics between the kombatants.
