Natives are creatures that have always resided in the Netherrealms and are deities of sorts. Examples are Time, Than and Tallulah, but also Red and Blue. They have elongated necks and don’t always present as human. They are practically immortal, though they can be killed by bodily harm. Where they go after that, we don’t know.
More voices have started criticizing the Natives for their detached way of ruling the Humans. Because of their longevity they lose sight of the Human’s perspective, who might find other things important. This resulted, for example, in the killing of Tallulah.
