The day that you joined the League the story about your bio was rather lackluster to be honest. However recently it has been changed, I am curious as to why the league would release a false background of you and then change it afterwards. Or could it be that the League is hiding or falsifying certain information?
Another question I have is your thoughts of the actual city state of Demacia. Demacia has been known for its righteous views going so far as to call itself "a paragon of virtue among all the other human settlements." However I am also a demacian citizen and I some times feel that Demacias ideal are blinding them. I have seen people who have stolen a piece of fruit be punished as if they killed a man. I must ask do you feel that Demacia is truly what we claim it to be?
I wondered about that, too. It was changed when several fans asked me why I'm so loyal to the man who killed my father. You can imagine my surprise at the question. So a fan directed me to the biography that the League wrote about me, and... it infuriates me just thinking about it. To accuse Prince Jarvan of murdering my father... I immediately headed to the Institute of War, and calmly and coolly
corrected them. I'm not sure why they printed a false story, though. The Summoner I spoke to wasn't the one who wrote the story, and she didn't know the logic behind the actions of the one who did. I suspect it was just a matter of the story being screwed up as one Summoner told it to the next and to the next.
Your second question... is a heavy one, Summoner.
I'll start by saying, Demacia is a place of kindness and tolerance. Many people would have me dead for what I am, but the amount of kindness that Prince Jarvan and Demacia have afforded me is more than I could have ever dreamed of. One minute, I was a hunted girl, homeless, covered in my father's blood and hoping the man with the lance approaching me was going to end my misery. A mere two weeks later, I was made an elite soldier of the Demacian military, respected by the entire citystate, known personally by prestigious families and the heads of government. I have a home, I have been given several armors that proudly display what I am, I've been trusted with representing Demacia on the world stage, and there are even rumors of me eventually becoming Queen. I will not tolerate people speaking ill of Demacia. It is a wonderful place, truly what every other citystate should aspire to be.
Now... the Demacian way is that there are no small crimes, and if that's the system, I respect it. But, the courts do take into account all circumstances revolving around the crime. The man who stole the fruit, what was his social status? How rich was he? Why did he do it? These are things the courts consider, and I have total faith in their ability to be just and fair. I will admit that there have been punishments that I thought were excessive, but anytime I think about that, I just look around Demacia. I look at its standing, its power, its kindness, and I have to think that, whatever it takes to make such a great citystate is worth it.
...don't read too far into that, Noxian parasites. When I say "whatever it takes is worth it", it's a figure of speech. It doesn't include murder, torture, or anything of the sort. Though I doubt you have much issue with either of those.
