Mortal Kombat II
After Sindel kills herself in defiance of Kahn, the Emperor seeks to ensure that Kitana will not defy him as well. Thus Mileena is born, spawned of Shang Tsung's black magic, intended to take the Princess's place. This was not to be, however, as the Tarkatan essence used in her creation results in a grotesque countenance. Not content to let his experiment go to waste, Mileena is trained as a personal guard and insinuated into his daughter's company as her sister.
For a short time, Kitana and Mileena worked together as assassins in Shao Kahn's service; though ostensibly her companion, Mileena's true task is to report any suspicious activity to her Emperor. During the events of the second tournament, she finds that Kitana is indeed in league with Earthrealm's warriors. Too enraged to notify Kahn, Mileena attacks her sister personally. Kitana subsequently prevails against her, killing Mileena and sending her soul to the Netherrealm.

Mortal Kombat: Deception
It is not until the return of the Dragon King Onaga that Mileena is finally freed. Found by her one-time ally Baraka, he convinces her to serve the Dragon King, where she is able to exact vengeance on her sister by posing as the leader of the Princess's armies; Mileena relished her temporary victory. Though aligned with Onaga, Mileena begins to entertain the idea of using the Edenian army to her own ends. Taking advantage of the weakened status of her former master, she storms Shao Kahn's fortress, declaring herself the ruler of Outworld. For a time she had the most powerful forces in either Outworld and Edenia.
Mortal Kombat: Armageddon
Her reign is short-lived, however. Having restored his former strength during the time of Armageddon, Shao Kahn now assaults his own fortress with the aid of Goro and Shang Tsung. Trying to shield herself from the Emperor's wrath, Mileena barricades herself in the throne room, and has her sorcerers cast a defensive barrier on the door. Even being magically bolstered, it is no match for Shao Kahn's brute strength, and soon Mileena is face to face with the Emperor. Still believing her to be Kitana, the remaining defenders rush to her aid, only to find themselves stabbed from behind by their "princess". Choosing fealty over death, Mileena reveals her identity to Kahn, and swears her allegiance.
Upon her capitulation, Mileena is tasked with the capture of Shujinko, whom Kahn believes will be useful in swaying Onaga to his side. Shujinko accepts an invitation from Mileena, presumably under the guise of Kitana; upon his arrival at Kahn's fortress, he is faced with the risen Emperor and his allies. Mileena captures him personally, fulfilling her duty to Kahn. But having been ruler for a time, she now chafes at the thought of servitude. Unfortunately, she realizes that while Shao Kahn lives, she has no hope of retaking the throne of Outworld. For this reason she travels to Edenia, hoping to reclaim her position there.
Like the other characters good and evil alike, in Armageddon Mileena Perishes in the final battle.
