Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Chaos Uprising

Rated: T for Violence, Some Language, and some Romance.
GMs: -Nocturnal, Supervegeta


Notice: The events of this RP takes place approximately 600 years before the events of Avatar: The Last Airbender anime/movie. Note that at this time, the Airbenders aren’t extinct yet.

~A Platinum QuarterdeckTM Production~

Plot

Avatar Guldin, the Avatar from the Earth Kingdom, had just passed away. He had lived a long and glorious life, and the world prospered under his watch. Now, for the next 16 years, the world would live without an Avatar, as they wait for the Avatar from the Fire Nation to surface on his 16th birthday. In the beginning, the world enjoyed some sense of peace. That didn’t last long. A few months after the death of the Avatar, Earth King Solus, beloved and respected by his people, was assassinated. The Earth Kingdom instantly fell into despair. The whole region was in a mess.

It didn’t take long for rumors to circulate, and eventually, gossip spread. In one of the rumors, the Fire Nation was blamed. At first, everyone dismissed this, until someone found a small bit of evidence that the Fire Nation might have been involved. Every day that passed, more tension rose, and eventually, the Earth Kingdom had fully blamed the Fire Nation for the death of their king. Action began to be taken. People, in their fear and anger, sent an attack to the Fire Nation. The Fire Nation retaliated. Soon, intense hostilities began. Both sides believed they were in the right, one retaliating after the death of their sovereign, the other defending itself from an attack uncalled for.

To make matters worse, arguments between the Southern and Northern Water Tribes have resulted in a Civil War, the likes of which look like it could end in certain death for all of the Water Tribe. The Southern Prince Alus and the Northern Princess Nala have always been a good couple. But then, like it have never happened, they’ve broke up, and the two tribes aren’t being united anymore. Arguments, fights, and wars are destroying the whole Water Kingdom, and it will fall if it contiunes. Being defeated by their own people doesn’t really sound glorious at all, but nobody would listen in this chaos. And now, matters become worse, as the Water Tribe’s Civil War is blamed on the peaceful Air Nomads. In many parts of the world, people aren’t happy. The Earth Kingdom and Fire Nation are on the brink of war, with skirmishes happening all over, and the Water Tribe is already in one, with much distrust now falling among the Air Nomads as well.

But some don’t buy it. The assassinated was too circumstantial, and the Water Tribes suddenly going into hostilities with one another? It seemed too dubious. Even more so was this sudden accusation of it being caused by the Air Nomads. They were peaceful people. Determined to prove that regular people are capable of saving the world, like the Avatar, a boy from the Fire Nation writes a letter and replicates it, sending it to every corner of the world, asking people to help him try to end this conflict, to help save the world from utter chaos, starting from Ba Sing Se.

You

You are one of the people who received a mysterious letter asking for help to stop the conflicts. You travel to Ba Sing Se where you meet with the other people willing to help. From there, you travel across the world, trying to quell hostilities between the Earth Kingdom and Fire Nation, help find the true origins and stop the Water Tribe Civil War, help find out who framed the Air Nomads, and in the process, discover who was REALLY behind the assassination of the Earth King...

Spoiler:
Name: Zen Kai "Rogue"

Age: (14+) 18

Nation: Fire Nation

Powers/Skills: Swordsmaster: The new Four-Bending Sword Style. Using his skills of the four nations, Zen has invented a type of swordmastery that involves the four elements, to an extent. Not their abilities, but the technique. Here's how it works.

The fighting style of Waterbending is mostly flowing and graceful, acting in concert with the environment. Waterbenders deal with the flow of energy; they let their defense become their offense, turning their opponents' own forces against them. In this way, Zen uses his sword skills as well, flowing and pulling movements. Firebending is notable for its intensive attacking style and general lack of adequate defense moves, which is how Zen uses this sword skill, an all out attacking motion. The key to Earthbending is neutral jing, which involves waiting and listening for the right moment to strike and when that moment comes, acting decisively. In other words, Earthbenders generally endure their enemies' attacks until the right opportunity to counterattack reveals itself, then strike with unyielding force. The key to Airbending is flexibility, finding and following the path of least resistance. Airbending is notable for being almost entirely defensive, and Zen uses it as such.

Together, Zen can use each different bending style as a type of stance and different sword style; The offensive and intense Fire Sword Style, the Elegant and defensively offensive Water Sword Style, the enduring and patient Earthbending Style, and the flexibly and defensive Air Sword Style.

Appearance:


Personality: Zen Kai is an enthusiast. He is always asking questions, and butting in when he isn't supposed to. When people say it's none of his business, he MAKES it his business. That's just the way he is, nosy, but always searching for answers. As smart as they come, Zen is quick to think on his feet, and quick to make decisions. He is kind, and believes in the sanctity of life, never killing anyone, if he could avoid it. He would often speak his mind, and tell the truth, even if it leads him to tough and tight situations. That's just the way he is. he disbelieves in deceit, preferring the straightforward approach in speaking. He has open views about everyone, and loves other cultures.

Zen is friendly, and gets along with almost anyone, but also dislikes and hates people who are merciless. Zen hates war, seeing thousands fight and die is beyond unpleasant for him.

History: Zen Kai was born in the Fire Nation. From a young age, he was interested in the histories of the other nations and the different cultures they represent. When he was 5, upon requesting his parents, he was sent to study with the Southern Air Nomads. There he stayed for 3 years, both making many friends and gaining quite a bit of opinions about the world through their eyes. Although he didn't know air bending, he used air bending principles and applied them to his daily regiment of exercise, which he would in later life apply to his study of the sword.

After spending another two years at home in the Fire Nation, Zen, at age 10, asked to be sent overseas to study again. His progressive parents, more than happy to see his soninterested in the other nations, agreed to send him to Northern Water Tribe.The experience was much different than the one among the Air Nomads, but Zen loved every second of it. The hospitality was wonderful, and Zen began to pick up study of the sword, of which the Water Tribe was fairly good at.

After spending 2 years with the Northern Water Tribe, Zen came home once more. He combined what he learned in the two other places he visited, and began forming opinions and strengths about the world, and about himself. He also added to his sword style a Fire Nation approach, to go along with the Water Tribe style, combining a unique, new style. Zen spend 4 years among the Fire Nation once more, studying both in school and learning the ways of the sword.

Zen set out once more to the Earth Kingdom, to learn more about their vast history. He had actually visited multiple cities while there, first spending a year in Omashu, before moving to the capital of Ba Sing Se.It was from there that he saw the first hints of neglect, of war, and of plotting, scheming, and tyranny. The Earth King, Solus, was just assassinated, and the entire nation was in an uproar. Zen observed as the entire nation slowly turned on the others, including his own Fire Nation. Being for him to remain in the open as a citizen of the Fire Nation, he adopted Earth Kingdom clothes and went into hiding in Ba Sing Se. He first wrote a letter to his parents, explaining that he was fine, and that he was planning to try and do something about this.

It was a dark time, and making matters worse was the Water Tribe going into a Civil War, and the Air Nomads being blamed for the entire thing. But Zen had been to all of these places. He knew it was unlike them. There was something else at work here, and Zen was determined to find out what. He wrote over 100 identical letters, and sent them all across the nations. He would be lucky if he even got one response to meet him back in Ba Sin Se. Some he sent to the places he stayed, hoping to get some of his friends he had met over the many years to come with him and help him find out what happened. Others he sent to towns by the dozen, hoping there might be a single soul who share his ideals about stopping war, and figuring out what really is going on.

While he stayed in Ba Sing Se, he decided the citizens from the inside, making his way around, doing whatever he possibly could to prevent war from continuing, including cutting supply lines, ambushing new recruits, and plenty more good stuff.

Nature: Lonely
Name: Ceara

Age: 16

Nation: Fire

Powers/Skills: Fire bender

Appearance: Ceara is average in height and very petite with her curly hair being an unusual dark red in color. She has the traditional gold eyes of the fire nation and her skin is tan. She dresses in a black tube top with a black skirt, flat shoes and a red vest. Always with her is a standard fire nation messenger hawk named Blaze.

Personality: Ceara's personality is very unpredictable just like fire. At times she can be kind and sweet, other times shy, and other times she can be very up front and angered easily. She can be very rash at times and unlike other firebenders she cared deeply about the wellfare of others never turning down someone who needs her help. Ceara is extremly loyal to her allies and will follow any order without fail even at the risk of her own life. This young firebender wants nothing more than to figure out what caused all the problems in the world to start

History: Ceara was born to two Nobles in the Fire Nation. Because of this from an early age she had training in firebending and martial arts. Ceara also showed great acrobatics which can play to an advantage in a fight but in skirmishes all her life it has also shown to be a weakness. Because of her Noble status she was only ever allowed to hang out with the other palace children a thing she hated because to her they were all too stuck up for her tastes.

When she turned 16 she recieved a letter from a mystery person and read it showing it to her parents who refused to let her go and locked her in her room. She managed to escape and made the long journey from the fire nation to Ba Sin Se by being a castaway on various ships.

RP Sample: Ceara sighed face covered in dirt and sweat as she entered her room after a long day of training. I can't believe I lost to Master Kuzon again she thought dipping a rag in a bowl of water and cleaning of her face. Turning the firebender smiled seeing her messenger hawk sitting on his perch on her desk. "Hey there Blaze" she said happily petting the hawk and giving him a treat before she spotted a letter at her desk. "What's this" she muttered sitting down in the wooden chair and opening the letter. A few minutes later when she finished reading it for the fifth time she stood excitedly and ran down to her parents. "Mother Father read this" she said handing the letter over to her father.

He stared blankly at the letter a few minutes long enough to make Ceara nervous "Your not going" he said riping the letter in half.

"What! Why not!" She protested picking up the ripped up letter.

"Because I said so" He said eyes narrowed as he took her arm and led her to her room "Stay here for the night" he said shutting the door and locking her in from the outside.

Ceara huffed plopping down on her bed and Blaze flew over to her nipping her ear as if to get her attention. "What is it?" she asked the bird smiling when he flew to her open window. Getting what he was trying to tell her Ceara quickly gathered a bag with her thing and quickly and quietly climbing out her window and onto the roof. "Lets go Blaze" she said running off into the night.

Join Date: Aug 2011
Location: The Clock Tower
Age: 18
Gender: Male
Nature: Quiet
Name: Wolf

Age: 19

Nation: Water Tribe (Southern)

Powers/Skills: Waterbender

Appearance: Wolf is tall, about 6'3", and weighs in at 157 lbs. Despite the freezing cold temperatures at the South Pole, he wears light wolf skin clothing to maximise his speen and agility while hunting. His sleek black hair is long, but few people ever actually see it as Wolf constantly wears a hood that covers his eyes. His outfit is dyed a light blue with white tints, a fashionable color scheme in the Southern Water Tribe.

Personality: Wolf is a hunter by trade, but he doesn't only hunt for food. He is an experienced assassain/bounty hunter, and he does his job well. However, he could care less for the money; the sheer thrill of the hunt is enough for him. He tends to be somewhat quiet, and never breaks his icy calm. He enjoys using his waterbending to freeze his prey in their tracks. He also delights in setting his enemies against each other using creative lies, and his gift of deception. He has no mercy for any of his enemies or prey, and will do whatever he has to (or whatever seems more fun) to finish a job.

History: Wolf was never given a birth name. He was born near the Southern Water Tribes city, on a ship owned by some Earth Kingdom merchant, Wolf's true father. Wolf was abandoned because the budget could not pay for food for the child, so he was left on the icy Southern shores. He was found by some hunters a half hour later, and they took the infant child in. He was named Wolf, because the hunters had just killed their 100th wolf. Wolf was trained to be a hunter, and at age 14, he set off on his 1st real fishing voyage.

However, a freak wave knocked the fishing boat off course, and many of the men were lost. Wolf managed to survive, but had no way to get home. He an the one other hunter who had managed to hold on to the vessel found their way to Kyoshi Island after 2 days of being lost. Wolf and the other hunter, Ryuko, were nursed back to health on the island. Wolf lived there for 9 months, then left the island to find work in Ba Sing Se. After 5 months, Wolf finally reached the Earth Kingdom Capital, where he found work as an assassain/bounty hunter.

RP Sample: (from Lost Memories [PG 16], as Kuro Usiku)
Quote:
Kuro walked along the road, not really paying any attention to the others in Rod's new group. Kuro knew more people had been joining. Mike, the large one, had followed Rod directly after Kuro. Soon, the awkward Link and the girl Alanna followed down the path as well. Kuro didn't quite know their reasons for following, but frankly he didn't care. Even though the original group was dividing, he could feel that more senseless bickering was ahead of them. Kuro pondered how long the new groups would remain seperate, or if these two groups would divide amongst themselves even more. He thought that if more standstills occured, Kuro would abandon the group. At least, temporarily. He felt that in the end, all groups would come together, recreating the original group.
Kuro felt his way back to reality, like a blind man feeling his way through a dark maze. He could hear voices, and some words seemed clearer than others. "It's funny," a faceless voice said. As reality came nearer, Kuro found words like "fighting", and "dismember". At "dismember", Kuro retreated a little bit, then found his way out of the metaphorical labrynth. He realized that "dismember" came from Rod. Threatening words had been spoken, which was apparently Rod's special way of taking control of the group.
"Don't worry," Kuro said, surprised by hearing his own accent. "I don't think any of us want to get in the way of getting things done. However," Kuro added, lowering his voice slightly, "Come near any of us with that 'friend' of yours, and my 'friend' will become your worst enemy." Kuro looked ahead, watching for the town. His feet were starting to hurt.

Here's my SU sheet tell me if there's anything wrong with it please.

Name: Garith Yang (Sometimes likes to be called by his last name)
Age: 15
Nation: Fire
Powers/Skills: Fire bender, also knows a bit on swordsmanship


Appearance: Garith is about 5'9'' has dark red eyes and usually has a smile on his face. His air stops at the the end of his neck, he has short bangs in the front and two strands of hair on both sides of his face that come down a little past his cheeks. His dark red eyes and face seem to express happiness and adventure just like he does.

He's a rather muscular boy with a built body but appears just to be a skinny kid. Garith wears a black and red tunic with black pants and boots. He also usually has a sword with him in its hilt strapped to his belt.


Personality: Garith is a happy kid, very friendly to people always willing to help others. He likes to make jokes and play around always finding some way to have some fun. Sometimes this does get him trouble but it's usually all in good fun and doesn't mean any harm.

Despite being a great Fire bender Garith is against fighting to cause people harm or using one's powers for selfish reasons. He is know to decline a duel request from challengers and is known for trying to find a better more happy way of solving disagreements. Garith doesn't mind fighting for fun or training but really doesn't like to hurt people.

Garith is also an animal lover despite him not being a vegetarian he likes to say if he didn't eat em' some other animal would have. He doesn't eat meat too much though and usually gets along with all animals rather nicely. Garith despises war and anyone who supports it. He can get a tad shy at times and isn't a real lady killer either despite girls usually flocking to him because he has good looks.

Yang is a all around nice guy who's friendly to others and loves to joke around and have fun. He can get very serious at times however.


History:

Garith was born in a family where he was the only bender. Well outside his family like cousins and uncles and thing like that he wasn't but in his immediate family there are no benders. His uncles would all joke on his father because none of his children could bend anything so once Garith was born his father made sure Garith would become a great bender better than his brothers.

Garith would endure intense training sessions involving both fire bending and swords play. Garith always like swords so he asked his father to add that to his training. He didn't mind the training he found it rather fun and wanted to make his father proud. During his free time he would either read about other forms of bending and their cultures or play around with the family dragon. Growing up Garith really didn't see many people owning a dragon well at least not in the small town he lived in. Garith when he was young and was playing in a forest found a dragon egg alone. He figured that the egg must have been separated from its parents so he took it home. It hatched into a red dragon Garith calls Vyer. The two spend a lot of time together and are almost inseparable.

Vyer would sometimes help with Garith's training. Garith would fly on Vyer to other kingdoms to learn more about his bending siblings and the way of their arts. Not being able to do them himself he would implement them into his own moves. This of course would throw off anyone of his sparing partners as most of them were fire benders and didn't know how to react to a fire bending move that resembled earth bending. People would tell him that he was born for greatness and had a great potential anyone could tell Garith would be a great master. Garith took this as an invitation to get even better so much better he could take on anyone.

RP Sample:

Yang sat alone in a large room lit with only a few candles scattered across the room. He sat legs crossed and in a meditative state focusing on something. A fireball then flew at Garith as he sat eyes closed peacefully. His eyes then quickly opened and the young fire bender swiftly and nimbly did a back handspring out of the way of the fireball coming at him. He then shot a fire ball at the area where the other came from hitting a man.

Then a wave of flames came at Garith and he reacted by hyper swiping over it. When he landed he shot two fire balls out of his fist as he thrust them through the air. He then front flipped, as he was flipping through the air a fire stream followed behind his heel. As he landed he stopped the ground letting out a huge wave of flames that came out like spikes. Another man down, one more to go. This was a form of his teachers training sessions which included finding your enemy in complete darkness.

The next man jumped from the darkness with his sword coming down at Yang. The black haired fire bender blocked the attack and quickly drop kicked the attacker.

"We're done here,' Garith said as he pointed the tip of his blade at the man's face.

"Good job," The man said as Garith helped him up.

"Garith a letter came for you!" Garith's younger sister Ming exclaimed as she came running in the room. Everyone in the room then walked out into bright of day. Yang slowly read the letter and the showed it to his father as he entered his house which was a little bit father than the training dojo. Garith's father was reluctant at first to let his son go off on his own to help some random fire nation kid end the conflict going on in the world but figured Garith would go anyone so he gave his son some supplies and sent him off on Vyer heading toward Ba Sing Se.

@HunterZero Hmm...the dragon seems a bit excessive... but you know what? I think it could be a good new "Appa" in the RP, so I'm willing to accept him, as long as you limit him for transportation. Wouldn't want to OP. Accepted.

Haha, maybe, but for now, I guess we'll use him as our transportation. BTW, I forgot to mention, I changed the boy who sent the letters from the Water Tribe to the Fire Nation (my SU), so you can change that part in your SU, if you want.

Lots of Fire Nation folks. Guess I'll be one in a million.

Name

Iskaa Xaong, also known as Tiger Lily of the South, Tiger Lily, or just Lily.


Age

16


Nation

Fire Nation


Powers/Skills

Firebender; Also skilled in "Fire Fist" style martial arts that utilizes dual bladed boomerang-blades usable for both melee and ranged combat that can be enhanced by firebending. However Iskaa is still working on perfecting it.


Appearance
Her nickname describes her appearance well. She's pretty attractive for her age with a youthful, friendly face, and no shortage of womanly features that are complemented well by her lightweight hide and metal armor colored in oranges, golds and reds that make her nationality obvious. Her athletic build shows through as well. One could tell this woman gets out a lot and can hold her own in a fight. She does happen to have a nasty scar just above her chest going part of the way down her right breast, though because she usually conceals her breasts, only the top part of it can be seen. She doesn't seem to care that people notice it.

Iskaa's hair is a bright auburn, almost taking an orange hue. In short, she's a ginger, but she's not ashamed of the fact. In fact, it complements her well and contributes to her earning the nickname Tiger Lily. The tiger lilies in her hair add to her nickname as well, where she tucks two behind each ear and two more tied to orange ribbons that hold up her two pony tails in the back. Her eyes are a stark contrast to her hair and her warm, tanned skin that almost gives her a tangerine hue. A vivid, crystal blue like the reflection of light off of the ocean are the appearance of her curious, child-like eyes. Being athletic, she is of the perfect weight and of average height, standing at about 5' 6".

Some would say Iskaa's garb is a little bit revealing, especially with her legs and arms, but it lets her move freely and she's got plenty of metal plates built in to cover vital spots. One could get a glimpse of her cleavage given how big her breasts are, though it quickly hides under her clothes. Still, her breasts are silhouetted well by her tight, form-fitting clothes that likely make up for the loss.


Personality

Iskaa is quite the energetic character in an environment she's comfortable in. She can be quite loud and goofy around good friends and she has a bit of a mischievous side too. When it's crunch time, she will rise to the challenge and face it head on. Her brave nature complements her overly dramatic streak, often one to describe something a little too strongly. Her goofy behavior rubs off on others in different ways, but more often it tends to make her look too cute, so others tend to not take her seriously because of it.

Most wouldn't expect it at first glance, but Iskaa is a very critical person, though she doesn't always express it. She pushes herself hard to excel, and can be very blunt about others as well, though she is less likely to express it as her honesty has gotten her in trouble in the past. Even with her food she's picky about, and although she loves to eat, she loves to eat top quality food only. Her overachieving nature often hides her intelligent side, which is scarcely seen except in a serious discussion or in a heated conflict.

The least you'd expect out of Iskaa is for her to be shy, but she's incredibly shy around new people, especially bigger people and people who seem too interested in her too soon. She's also easy to blush, so she's known to do a variety of things under social anxiety such as running away and hiding, or curling up into a ball and hiding her face. She doesn't have much social pizazz as it stands and makes up for it by being obnoxious, which unfortunately backfires a lot.
The girl is also quite modest, which you normally wouldn't expect with her behavior. She doesn't like to brag much and will downplay any praise you give her. This is not to be confused with her confidence, as she's fairly skilled at keeping them both in check.


History

Iskaa was born on an island in the southern portion of the Fire Nation's archipelago. Her village was both a major fishing village, a mining town that sought after the ore from the volcano that made the island, and major Fire Nation naval base that her father was the commander of. Often her father was on duty patrolling the Fire Nation's southern seas, so Iskaa grew up mostly with her mother. Though born as commoners, her father's accomplishments in the Fire Nation's military have given her family a good name, and as such it carried on to Iskaa as well.

Despite her father's good name, Iskaa didn't grow up with many friends. It became common that she'd run home crying from the island academy after a bad day of teasing. Soon after, her mother introduced her to the tiger lily meadows further up the volcano's steppes that cheered her up greatly. It wasn't long before Iskaa made the tiger lily meadows her hang out, where she played and even slept in harmony, even picking some of the flowers herself and inserting them in to her hair. As she grew up with her favorite flowers, she soon began taking classes in martial arts where she learned that she was a firebender.

Her father, a notorious user of the fire fist style of mixed martial arts and firebending would be be passed down to her daughter, Iskaa. Though her clumsy nature made her learn it slowly, she soon picked up speed and began to become quite proficient in the fire fist style. A year after she had begun her training, her father took her in to the mountains to a small valley where meteors were known to land, where they picked out the space ore that can be found there and they returned to the naval base where with her father's tutelage, Iskaa made her own boomerang-blades so that she can be a true practitioner of the art.

Unfortunately, at the age of 14, a massive fleet of pirates laid siege to the island's port town and did some serious damage. Despite being home to one of the Fire Nation's finest naval fleets, they were caught with their pants down with most of their ships out on patrol, including Iskaa's father. Though the seamen stationed at the base fought the valiant fight, the town was razed and several people were robbed, abducted and killed, including Iskaa who was taken hostage, and her mother who was robbed and murdered. Furious, she managed to burn down the ship's hull as they docked by a port and slayed the pirate captain as well as a few of his cohorts, making off with some of the treasure and heading in to the port.

As a result, Iskaa had to take up mercenary and bounty hunter work to survive as she was hopelessly stuck in the Earth Kingdom with no way back to her home in the Fire Nation. Though her work payed well and she was good at doing it, she had no home, so she in effect became a nomad, traveling from town to town making money doing chores and hunting criminals, earning her the name Tiger Lily for her fierce, fiery fighting style, her orange colors and hair, and the tiger lilies tucked into her hair. It wouldn't be long before most people would refer to her as the Tiger Lily.


RP Sample

It was a calm, orange evening at a small coastal Earth Kingdom village. The waves splashed against the shore and the wooden pier rhythmically, A girl's feet danced in the oncoming ocean waves as she sat with a white cloth over her thighs with a steaming pastry on her lap. Looking out into the orange sunset out over the vast ocean, she routinely took bites out of her pastry meal. Melted particles and crumbs hug her lips where some of her meal eluded her hungry belly. Her jolly disposition seemed immune to any sort of disruption. Nobody could separate her happiness and thoughtless bliss... unless you took her pastry.

Finishing her delicious meal, she fell back onto the pier, looking up into the sky with her arms tucked and crossed behind her head for support. Her feet still danced in the cool, soothing waves as she gazed upward at the evening sky, watching it make the incredible rainbow-like transition from orange to light purple.

"Yummy!" she tells herself as she lies on the wooden surface without a care in the world, starting to nod off even.

Then, the clattering of iron-soled feet started heading towards her. Her eyes widened from hearing the noise and she tilted her head to her left towards the shore, where she saw three taller men cloaked in twilight approach her.

"What's this about...?" she mumbled to herself suspiciously. "Who'd ruin my perfectly good evening?"

Approaching the girl, the man in front spoke with a booming voice. "Miss Lily, we have a... strange request for you. From Ba Sing Se."

Her eyes widened at hearing Ba Sing Se. Instantly she leaped up, her feet launching several particles of ocean water onto herself and the guards, and in near lightning speed she grabs the parchment he's holding and gleans it with eyes gaping wide with shock.

"No... WAY!!!" she squeals with joy, her eyes sparkling with fascination and her mouth open slightly just to allow her to expel some of her excess drool resulting from dreamlike realization.

The guards are not too fond of her reaction, glaring at her slightly now that they're soaking wet and were interrupted before they could finish their news report. Of course, the girl was absorbed into her letter, completely oblivious to the guards' disdain for their drenched state.

"I'll go there RIGHT AWAY!!! Weeeee!" she screams, shoving the fully read parchment into the lead guard's arms and leaping over him with... almost feline grace, shaking a bit from her less then graceful landing as she runs toward town.

"Weeee! They finally know about me! I'm going to Ba Sing Se!" she yells out in to the evening air, heading back to town as if she was racing someone.

"You know, it's hard to believe that girl can kill anyone, much less be a sought after bounty hunter in these parts," the lead guard tells the others.

The other guards nod grudgingly, still soaking wet from her splash earlier.

It seems as if this girl's life was going to turn around for the better. Nothing could be better than working for people in Ba Sing Se, which surely means a lot of pay plus major name recognition would surely pay off. But will her perceived dreams become reality or will this sudden change take her on an unexpected and dangerous adventure in to the unknown?

Are there still spots open? =3 I'm fangirling over Avatar: The Last Airbender recently (again) and as such, this is the perfect RP for me to join currently. XD

In order to balance it out, I think I'll be an Air Bender. o.O I don't think there are any; most are fire nation. xD

RESERVE ME. I need to finish another SU DESPERATELY. xD

Name: Meifeng, can also be called "Mei" (WHICH IS REALLY WEIRD SINCE MY COUSIN'S NICKNAME IS MEI), or "Feng".

Age: 18

Gender: Female

Nation: Western Air Temple

Powers/Skills: A master Air Bender (tattoo and all); can also use a Bo Staff, throwing knives, and fans (like the Kyoshi warriors) well, but can use other weapons if needed.

Appearance: Her forehead is bare of any hair, due to the arrow tattoo on her head. However, she has long, brown hair, that is usually tied up loosely. She also has wide, gray eyes. She stands at around 5'7" and weighs at about 110 pounds. She wears the traditional air bender outfit; a tight orange shirt with huge sleeves and a long, yellow skirt. However, underneath the skirt, she wears long, yellow pants so when she fights, she doesn't..."flash" anyone when she jumps/flies. Her shoes are traditional open-toe Chinese shoes that are comfortable to move around in, quite like the rest of her clothes. Her tattoo also travels to her back, her arms, and her legs. She also wears the traditional necklace of master airbenders.

Personality: Meifeng can be quite a bit of a joker, although her jokes are never harsh, nor injuring. She is usually seen with a smile, or a grin, on her face. She is normally quite a happy person, although she is rather realistic and does not hesitate on defending herself if needed. She is also quite stubborn; never stopping when she feels that something is not enough, not good enough.

However, her personality has a complete 180 when she is either training or fighting. When she is training, a smile is rarely seen on her face. She is usually calm and serious, not spending time to joke or fool around. When she is fighting, she becomes blunt, sarcastic, and dangerous. Although she rarely brings out the lethal tactics, she does not hold back at all during a fight.

History:
Meifeng lived in the Western Air Temple for her whole life. Her earlier life was dedicated to fun and training; always playing pranks, but training hard whenever she could. She was a prodigy and was able to learn techniques just by looking at them once. Due to this, she has become the youngest master airbender at the age of twelve, ever since Avatar Aang. She has also created quite a few techniques during her life; including some fatal techniques, although airbending in general was not usually so aggressive.

She got Lian when she was five, feeding Lian an apple. Lian was the runt of the litter, which was what drew Meifeng to Lian in the first place. However, Lian is one of the biggest Sky Bisons currently.

When she was fourteen, she started teaching some of the younger airbenders, becoming a Sifu. Due to experimentation from a few of the high monks and traveling around a lot, she had a mix of different styles, bending or otherwise, although she could not bend the other elements. Although it came naturally to her, she still remained humble and always worked hard to perfect her bending.

Other:
She has a Sky Bison as a companion (slightly bigger than Appa); her name is Tian.

She is a vegetarian and dislikes nature being hurt/destroyed. She never attacks first, only attacking when others attack her first.

RP Sample:


"Sifu Meifeng!"

A small boy, around five, ran towards one of the rooms, shouting out a name. Meifeng, also known as "Mei" or "Feng", opened her eyes from her meditation. She flew up gracefully, landing softly on her feet. She nodded, smiling brightly to the boy.

"What is it that you need, Huang?" questioned Meifeng.

Huang held out a letter that was clutched in his hands tightly. "There was a letter for you, Sifu Meifeng. Shall I leave and allow you to read it alone?"

Meifeng took the letter with a bow. "That would be quite nice of you to do so. I will see you tomorrow for the airbending lessons."

Huang nodded eagerly. "Okay!" He bowed quickly to Meifeng, getting one in return, and left in a rush.

Meifeng chuckled slightly. Huang was really energetic; and quite cute as well. However, there was the problem with the letter; many did not know of her existence although she was the youngest master airbender since Avatar Aang. She opened up the letter and started to read, still standing up.

-x-

After she was finished reading the letter, she set it down on her bare desk and frowned slightly. Traveling to Ba Sing Se? Leaving her home? Although it seemed fairly important, could she really leave everyone behind? She would have to ponder this more. Deciding that it would do well to take a walk, she headed out of her room, watching some of the children running around and playing. She found that her feet had brought her to wear the Sky Bisons usually slept; to where Tian was. Sensing that Meifeng was near, Tian flew down to Meifeng, licking her with her huge tongue. Meifeng chuckled, automatically drying her outfit. She started to pet Tian's head.

"How are you doing, Tian?" questioned Meifeng.

Tian rumbled happily, signaling that she was doing well. However, Tian could sense that something was troubling her lifelong friend and made a questioning rumble.

Meifeng laughed. "You always did know me too well. I just got a letter and it is telling me to leave to Ba Sing Se. What do you think? Should I do so?"

Tian grumbled, thinking slightly, before nodding.

Meifeng let out a breath. "Then we shall leave tonight. I must go get permission from the council of high monks."

Tian nodded, licking Meifeng one more time, before flying into the sky again.

Meifeng smiled slightly and walked to where the high monks were.

-x-

"You need to head to Ba Sing Se?" questioned one of the high monks.

Meifeng nodded.

"For what reason?"

"I want to go visit Bai," Meifeng stated. Although her primary reason would be to go to Ba Sing Se because of the letter, it did not mean that she would not visit Bai; one of her best friends in the Earth Kingdom.

All of the high monks nodded. "When do you plan to go?"

"Tonight."

"We will allow you to leave," stated the head monk. "Please be careful."

Meifeng nodded, while bowing. "Thank you."

She left quickly.

-x-

She sat down on Lian's head, the few necessary things on Lian's back.

"Yip yip," she stated and they were off.

((Did I really have to do this? You know how I RP by now! I hope!))
