KI Tournament competitors

If Killer Instinct was made into a live action TV, movie or web series, what kind of new characters do you picture being competitors for the KI tournament?

For the tournament arc.

Something within the history of the game, and according to the reality of KI.
New humans, members of the renegades or remaining government spies, new Ultratech creations (a unit C for Aria and one more machine), with Fulgore and Kilgore continuing their missions.
Human character carrying a guardian of light would also be interesting, and lastly, wendigos or other members of the Coven.

Well we need new humans.

In a KI TV series, since MK Conquest, we need to see all kinds of fighting styles and powers into the mix.
