"Since my birth, I was considered an orphan by Edenia. Nevertheless, all the royal family treated me as a lord. I did never know the reasons for that, until the day a hooded woman grabbed my arm and told me I'm a king.
At first, I laughed. Then my smile vanished when she told I'm Argus' son. All edenian tales spoke of how Argus had a bastard son, but I could never imagine that was me.
In fact, my father, the god of Edenia, had an affair with a mortal: the princess of Accuaria, a submerse realm, forgotten by those who lived on the surface. I was born as the only heir of Accuaria royal family, since Argus' wife, Delia, asked for edeninan ninjas to kill my mother.
The hooded woman introduced herself as Chronos. She said that, as a half-god and king of Accuaria, I could rule over Edenia, now that Sindel, Kahn and Kitana [link]
were all dead.
But she wanted me for something bigger than that. So, Chronos asked me to wait for the right moment to reveal the truth. For now, I should pretend to still be the orphan warrior. And that was when Quan Chi came to ask for my help."
