The Netherealm Hound

There was going to be a dog character in MK Mythologies: Sub-Zero.  But, having played through the whole game I can say he is not in there.  Could he be hidden, and somehow I missed him?  Was he going to be in there but then had to be scrapped due to time limits?

Perhaps Shinnok was going to turn into him at the end of the game, but they instead turned him into that horrible beast at the last minute.  Or is he a fake?  Did John Tobias draw him, not having any intention of putting him into the game?  Is it possible that plans for the hound character had to be put aside when another software company threatened legal action?

Who knows.

One things for certain:  There is a hound character in Greek mythology named Cerberus (Kerberos in Roman mythology).  He is the Guardian of the Underworld (equivalent of the Netherealm).  Cerberus has three heads and the tail of a dragon.  He permits all spirits to enter but none to leave.  I didn't know much about Cerberus, but I have a friend from Greece named Sapfarah who has divulged some information on him!  Read on...

The Roman Kerberos is slightly different... "Guarding the gates of Hades is the bronze-voiced hound, who eats raw flesh and has fifty heads and on his back the heads of all sorts of snakes."  You can find a picture of him here.
