Cinder : KI

Killer Instinct

  • 6' 2"
  • 195 lbs
  • 31 years old

A convict, experimented on by UltraTech. A failed chemical weapon test mutated his body turning him into a living flame. Promised freedom if he defeats Glacius, he enters the fray.

The following biographical information is quoted from Rare's old website

Ben Ferris, a small-time criminal with counts of assault, breaking and entering and arson on his record, is the latest convict to be bought out of jail for Ultratech's twisted uses. His fate is to be used as a human guinea-pig in the company's chemical weapon developments, an unexpected side-effect leaving him consumed by fire but somehow, much to his own horror, still alive. He is kept confined in a top-security block until Ultratech decide to enter him into the tournament under the codename Cinder to defeat Glacius fairly and in full public view, his freedom providing the ultimate incentive.

Cinder’s Ending

Leaving as the champion of the tournament, a hostile police reception awaits him outside the gates of UltraTech. As no stranger to confinement from his former life of crime, Cinder has no intention of being imprisoned again. Using his newly acquired power, he easily evades the capture attempt, leaving his potential captors in his wake. Picking a location suitable for his current condition he ponders his next move.
