There are a lot of characters who don’t really have a rival, so I thought I’d come up with a few ideas.
* [Kung Lao and Frost] Both fighters are motivated by envy, while Kung Lao seeks to prove himself to the people he envies, Frost seeks to destroy them. I think they’d work well as foils to each other.
* [Nightwolf and Rain] Both fighters want to protect their people, the Matoka and Edenia respectively. One, selfless and humble, motivated by compassion and empathy. The other, arrogant and entitled, motivated by ego and selfishness.
* [Erron Black and Geras] Both fighters have been alive for a long time. One fights for himself, the other fights to serve. Erron has no greater cause to fight for, but he’s free. Geras fights for something bigger, but he exists to serve others.
If anyone else has any ideas, I’d love to hear ’em!
