Shinnok was not much involved in the events of WHvVWE Universe, as his rivalry with Elder Gods went way back before the creation of that universe. It was known that he overthrew the previous ruler of Netherrealm, Satan, alongside Quan Chi. Shinnok himself was later punished for assisting Shao Kahn with the invasion of Heaven and was sealed inside his own amulet. However, a young son of an Elder God named The Gatekeeper used to worship him, and sacrificed his own mother to boost the power of Shinnok so that he would break free from the amulet. Elder Gods ended up punishing The Gatekeeper for his dedication to their mortal enemy, and he was sent from Outworld to Earthrealm.
