The history of the Shirai Ryu extends back to the Lin Kuei, in the early days of the Lin Kuei there was a Japanese Lin Kuei member named Takeda and he decided to defect from the Lin Kuei, this naturally marks him for death for his betrayal to the clan. Takeda returns to Japan and offers to teach lords and Generals their the art of ninjitsu and soon Japan has ninja clans spawning everywhere including the Shirai Ryu, which was founded by Takeda. Takeda was later killed in his elder years by a poison slipped in his tea. Before being killed by Sub-Zero, Scorpion belonged to this clan.
