In the Empire of Thorn, there's a saying that the empress can't birth a child. Because of this, many Kings and Emperor doesn't pursue her. She is nickname Baby killer in private in regard to the fact that all of her attempt at birthing a child led to one result, death.
In fact, this name is breath to living primary by her cousin, who hold extreme hate to the current empress for drugging her and play a role of match making with her and a civilian.
Even worse is that no one believe her when she told this story because the ploy is just too perfect. So perfect that even she admire it and hated it.
The empress definitely been planning this for month because the civilian really does a good job at attracting her attention, using her weakness of praises and flowery items. Even though she accepted it all for granted and doesn't really care for the man, the public doesn't think likewise.
People are so attentive to subtle hint that this little act could act as the best evidence to support that witch malicious scheme. Even thinking about that night bring the cousin down, because she really did enjoy it...
Suddenly the yell of a man rang out, " Its a miracle! The empress birth a child!"
Hearing this, the cousin yell out, "What! That is not possible!"
This is because the cousin, Wench Fish has personally poison the empress long before. Disabling her from having a child to succeed so that hers by right will have a chance. It seem all of that long-term planning has at this moment failed.
Tears fell streaming down Wench eyes. The only solace she got is from this... Now what has it come to?
At a certain room clear of luxurious item but medical equipment. A women is being operated on, she doesn't shout from pain or moan but in her eyes a complicated light is shown when looking at her child.
She knew why all these years she could not have a successor. It is with this that she plan to take revenge against her cousin Wench fish. She even have more torturous scheme going if this operation failed. However, she lost all reason to when her son birth is a success.
"I guess that Wench of a cousin can be scot free this time, but if she dare to harm my son, then Hmph... she better be prepare!", The empress said.
Holding a small cute infant that was given to her, she cradle him to her arm and rub him with her face with a bright smile. This bespectacled baffles the man and the nurse.
It had to be said that the empress never smiled. It is understandable because she had to keep her strong front in dealing with her subordinates and to deter other kingdom from thinking that the empire has fallen. Not that it has, but just so that no harm befall her people.
Holding out a finger, she smiled when the infant use his five tiny finger to hold it. Bewitch by the little life before her, she kept on staring until a cough from the middle age man interrupted her after a while.
"What?", she drop all pretense at this point because a heir is finally born.
"Umm.. empress what name will you bestow before the heir?" Ask the middle age man politely, he also seem somewhat shock with the pretense being drop.
The empress eye turn sharp and then melancholy before she manage to say, " Defense smith."
Hearing this, the middle age man is speechless, "Can the empress please reconsider the name? It seem like the drug is still in effect. It would do the empress fine if you waited until the effect is gone before naming the heir."
The empress put this into consideration, " Then I'll name him Def.. Defter smith? Deaf smith? Argh... let just go with Defense smith, Carl. I trust this will be the best name."
"But-", the middle-age name Carl utter before being interrupted.
"No buts! The decision is final. You know well my Ideology of combat. Defense can better protect everything around you than offense. It also put into him my desire to keep him safe, and the ability for him to pursue the path that best protected his love ones and everything he values.", the empress said sternly.
" I understand Empress Veil Smith. You do take your naming sense from him after all.", Carl smile, his eye glaze looking back at the past.
"...", Veil just continued to silently observe Defense smith or Def from above.
Even though all of this is going on, Def couldn't understand a single thing that was said. He found the language to be foreign and unfamiliar, to be expected of a new world. A head ache inducing problem he now has to face.
Thank you god, he thought.
Every thought weirdly drain energy from him. This cause Def to be extremely sleepy. He still has the art of void to explore but for now, he will just sleep.
—— 3 Days past ——-
Def can now understand everything people around him is saying and found out that he is a royalty! This is not because he have a photographic memory or anything. The reason is that two day prior after waking up, he start exploring the art of void.
To be honest, it look like a status screen but instead of number depicting his information, it instead show an empty bar.
He presses on it and a keyboard pop up into existence. This greatly excited Def who is profoundly familiar with the keyboard since he bound everything related to LoL into every keys. Like for example spacebar for showing his mastery, it's easier to use and taunt extremely well.
He type in League of Legend and it show one result. It read,
[Please choose your path before proceeding.]
At first he doesn't understand what it meant but then he just type in swordsman and a new result pop up,
[Please choose an Attack path before proceeding.]
This give Def a bit more understanding, so he type in Attack path into the bar. It then show a prompt that read,
[The best Offense is in your grasp]
[The way to find your Attack skill is through your existing knowledge. The skill has to be proven to work visually before it can be learnt.]
"Umm.. This path is interesting, but I am not really interested in being a glass cannon especially in this world where you have only one life... let's look at the other path.", Def thought in his head.
He then type in Support Path into the bar, the result read,
[Support path integrate with both defense and offense. Since it could help implement both.]
"From this result, it show that there are only two path, since a support path should usually be able to support all path and not only for Defense and Offense path.", Def thought. "If Offense Path is not it for me, then let's go Defense then."
He then type in Defense Path into the bar, which show a prompt that read,
[Harm is but a joke. Damage is a rare and a precious memory. Blood is meant to stay with the owner.]
[To get a skill please use your existing knowledge and a visual input that it work.]
"I am wondering what they meant by existing knowledge? Can I perhaps get a Nasus ultimate as a skill? Since I play in it and visually the skill does work. Thinking about it make me excited. This is probably why the search engine transfer with me to this world. I am grateful because I now have an access to most the knowledge in earth.", Def thought before typing in Nasus into the search bar.
It then show a result with Nasus as a picture and his introduction,
[Nasus is an imposing, jackal-headed Ascended being from ancient Shurima, a heroic figure regarded as a demigod by the people of the desert. Fiercely intelligent, he was a guardian of knowledge and peerless strategist whose wisdom guided the ancient empire of Shurima to greatness for many centuries. After the fall of the empire, he went into self-imposed exile, becoming little more than a legend. Now that the ancient city of Shurima has risen once more, he has returned, determined to ensure it never falls again.]
It also show five of his abilities: Soul Eater, Siphoning Strike, Wither, Spirit Fire, Fury of the Sands.
Def become a little greedy and tried to learn Siphoning Strike but the notification that come after it said that he can't since it is consider a move from the Attack Path.
"That sucks.", he thoughts.
He doesn't become discouraged though because he knew that Nasus ultimate could definitely be consider a move for a Defense Path. Because it doesn't require an action to attack but just grow stronger and more powerful.
He couldn't get Spirit Fire either or Soul Eater but he could get Wither which is consider a Support skill.
The two skill he got is Wither and Fury of the Sands.

"So that what happen 2 days prior, and now I am finding a suitable volunteer to test my Wither on since using it openly is not a good idea. I can imagine people suddenly freaking out when someone next to them visibly aged.", thought Def, rubbing his small hand together. A pure evil glint in his eyes.
