Havik is a cleric of Chaos. Neither good nor evil, his ambitions are to
spread discord and he will ally himself with those who can seek to further
his ends, regardless of their goals. He is known to be a frequent troublemaker
in Seido (the realm of Order), where he has formed an alliance with the
revolutionary Darrius, and is heralded as a
hero by the populace of the Chaosrealm. He opposes the Dragon King, Onaga,
who rules by order.
Seeing Onaga's return
and plans to unite the Kamidogu as a possible threat to the "never ending
turmoil of life", Havik made his way to put a halt to the schemes of the
Dragon King. Along the way, he encountered a severely wounded Kabal,
who had just been defeated by the Red Dragon Mavado. Healing Kabal's injuries,
Havik manages to convince Kabal to restore the former glory that the Black
Dragon clan once possessed in the name of anomie. He did this in order
to promote chaos in Earthrealm.
Havik, along with
Kabal and his new Black Dragon recruits, Kira
and Kobra, ventured into Outworld.
There, Havik revealed his plans: lure the heroes into a battle with Onaga,
and, once the Dragon King had been defeated, take down or distract the
victors of the battle long enough so that Havik could consume Onaga's heart.
This would grant him Onaga's ability to resurrect the dead. Havik lured
the heroes to the Dragon King as planned and thus put his schemes into
In Mortal Kombat:
Armageddon's Konquest mode, Havik is seen in the Netherealm along with
and a legion of demons all apparently working in an attempt to overthrow
Shinnok's rule at his spire.
However, Shinnok later reveals that they were just apparitions created
as a test for Taven, thus making it clear that it wasn't the real Havik.

Havik looks like
a random bad guy who appears in LEVEL 2 of some generic dungeon crawling game. (You know, the enemies that
are stupidly easy to kill and disappear after they start blinking?) C'mon man. There isn't much to talk about when it comes to Havik's visual design... and he doesn't offer much that hasn't been seen before in Mortal Kombat. (But if you're generous, you might actually give him enough credit to call him a Skeletor
wannabe.) At best, Havik looks like a mix of several MK designs, so of course, he appears to "fit in". He's got the trademark loincloth, after all.
If you ask me, Havik is yet another "bone-headed" design
from the PS2 3D era of MK games. No pun intended. In fairness, Havik's silly "shock value" special moves offer some comic relief in the games he appears in... but still, he just comes off as a gimmick character and afterthought type of design.
