Daahraan, played by Hank Stone, is a minor character in the television series Mortal Kombat: Conquest episode "The Essence". Daahraan is a native citizen of Edenia and is said to be the keeper of the Essence of Edenia, a mystical power that holds the key to revitalize and restore his lost homeworld. He was an old friend of Princess Kitana and a teacher of the Great Kung Lao.


The Edenian warrior Daahraan and his people were once living in a time of prosperity and peace, until Shao Kahn the Konqueror led a surprise attack upon their world and had them all enslaved.

Daahraan went into hiding and yet, he was also keeping a very important secret, one that will regain Edenia's beauty and freedom.

Years later in Outworld, Princess Kitana found and made contact with Daahraan. He told her that the essence has been hidden away in Earthrealm where it is safe.

However, before Daahraan could join with Kitana again, he was attacked and murdered by Vorpax, who along with Shang Tsung, tried to steal the essence for Shao Kahn in exchange for their freedom from the Cobalt Mines of Shokan.

Kitana convinced the Great Kung Lao to go with her to meet Daahraan. When they got to the warrior, they found him dying, having been brutally attacked. As Kung Lao tries to help him, he uttered his dying words —that Kitana was Shao Kahn's stepdaughter. After a battle and the ensuing pursuit, Kung Lao finally understood that neither Kitana nor her friend Qali were responsible for Daahraan's death.

In the end, Princess Kitana and her new ally recovered the Essence of Edenia, and Daahraan's sacrifice was not in vain.
