Image

Personality:
{Stern, Nurturing, Confident, Loyal}

Ianzok is a very stern and disciplined individual, as he believes it is the right image to portray as the Fire Lord. This also extends to his handling of his son, which has not led to satisfactory results. He expects his orders to be obeyed without second thought, and when he hands out punishments, it will not be revoked without good reason.

He is also a rather nurturing individual, as he has been leading his nation to it's Golden Age. Also, when they were younger, Ianzok was the one who would play with Aonani and his cousin, although they were too young to recall those happy moments.

Ianzok is fairly confident with his prowess. It isn't arrogance, merely confidence that fuels him. He tries to be modest but everyone knows how confident he is. After all, up till this day, Ianzok has never lost any Agni Kais to date, and has actually stopped participating in Agni Kais.

Loyalty is a trait that Ianzok treasures and hopes that his son has. Ianzok is loyal to his nation and his friends, and would never forget a face if he could help it. A prime example is that of Ianzok and the Earth King's relationship, Ianzok will always have his back but expects the same in return.

Ianzok has no met the new Avatar, but believes no matter what, the Avatar can, will and must bring balance back to the world. It is, after all, the role of the Avatar.
   
Hobbies:
Paisho
Ianzok is a lover of Paisho, a board game that is symbolic to the Order of the White Lotus. He plays it to relieve stress, usually along with a cup of hot tea. Ianzok often talks about how difficult it is to get a hold of the Paisho board nowadays and how not many of the young people play it anymore.

Fighting
Ianzok is a fan of watching fights, and also participating in them as long as he doesn't have to use his bending. Ianzok is rather hotblooded, a trait unknown by others because of the calm image he exudes. When he was younger, he was alot like Aonani in ways his son wouldn't even begin to imagine.

Camping
Ianzok loves camping and often goes out alone to spend some time out there, hunting and meditating. He also began taking Aonani along with him as a way to bond with his son.
      
Habits:
Airhead
Ianzok can be a bit of an airhead at times. He can have his head so high up in the clouds that he may not even notice when he's broken something by accident. His only way to make up for it is to hand the owner some Fire Nation gold pieces, which often makes for comical effect.

Hair
Similar to his son, Ianzok often runs his hand through his slicked back hair despite having no tangles in it. He does it when he's thinking, amused, embarrassed, agitated, etc.

Youth
Despite his age, Ianzok still has moments where he refuses to admit he is old and ends up doing childish things. This trait is often seen when he interacted with the Earth King and children, where he will make extremely goofy faces for such a stern man.

  • Lightning Bending and Lightning Redirection(The only know individual to have redirected a lightning strike)
  • White Sun Ianzok(Ianzok's firebending mastery has reached the ultimate peak. When Ianzok flares up, his chi flows throughout his entire body, causing him to heat up the air around him and produce very dense steam as well as very hot thermals. The visual image of the dense steam around him makes it seem like a white hot aura. Ianzok's flames turn whitish. The steam layer around him also renders him impervious to other firebender attacks, making him the perfect Agni Kai combatant.
    This is presumed to be a very powerful variation of the Combustion technique. ***Search Combustion Man and P'Li for more information.)

History:
Ianzok, the only Fire Lord other than Fire Lord Zuko to have ascended the throne at a young age, Zuko at 16, Ianzok at 18. Ianzok was a prodigy firebender even at a young age, quickly surpassing the masters that was assigned to him. He met and fell in love with a waterbender from Republic City named Kenone, much to his parent's chagrin. He also became best friends with an Earthbender, who is now the Earth King. The two fight with great sync, often utilizing Lavabending together, as Ianzok would heat the earth while the Earth King would bend it. This required great sync between the two friends, easily beating solo Lavabenders.

Ianzok began to be known as the 'White Sun' by his opponents presumably when he was 20, though it has been more than 2 decades since they've last seen 'White Sun' Ianzok, as his prowess was soon forgotten and the younger, arrogant Firebenders sees him as merely an old man who is just the Fire Lord. They believe that Ianzok's refusal to participate in Agni Kais whenever he was challenged was proof enough, although it is actually because Ianzok could potentially kill someone or break their spirit for being too powerful to handle that he declines these challenges so often.

Ianzok was an affectionate father, but never really got around to talking with his son, Aonani. He was always caught up with work, trying his best to lead the Fire Nation to greatness, economically and infrastructure. Under his rule, the Fire Nation was at it's Golden Age, but Ianzok's sacrifice for his country meant he lost time to accompany his son, whom he believes Aonani thinks that Ianzok doesn't favour him. Despite this, he was stern and often disliked his son's attitude regarding punctuality as well as Aonani's tendency to let others have second chances, seeing them as weak traits unfit for the heir of the throne.

Ianzok is considered an unofficial member of the White Lotus. Ianzok was offered a place in the Order of the White Lotus, which he respectfully declined in order to fully focus his time and attention on his Nation. Knowing he had no time to train his own son, he allowed an old friend who was also a member of the White Lotus, a Firebending master to train his son, hoping that Aonani would flourish to be as good of a fighter as he was. Unknown to Aonani, Ianzok had given the master specific locations that Ianzok himself had gone to during his training pilgrimage to bring Aonani to assist in the training as well as give his son the view of the land.

When Aonani was thirteen, he lost his mother, and Ianzok, his wife. The lost was devastating to both father and son, although Ianzok always held a strong image to be the unmoving rock of the family. Often times he would cry in the Lord's chambers, holding onto a picture of Kenone. This event would cause Ianzok to realize the fleeting lives of his loved ones, eventually deciding to make up for lost time with his son. When his son's master became sick, Ianzok's immediate order was for him to leave, fearing that the sickness would spread to Aonani. This lost was difficult for Aonani to handle and he disappeared from the palace, leaving Ianzok devastated and broken-hearted.

Ianzok eventually became bedridden throughout the months and was eventually losing the strength to carry on, until his son arrived. Seeing Aonani again was enough for Ianzok to make his recover, gaining vigor and strength just with the presence of his son alone. Ianzok began to eat better and regained his vitality back eventually.

Aonani's accusation that his nephew had been trying to poison him to death, threw Ianzok into confusion at first. Investigating further, he found the truth and in one fell swipe, he banished his nephew from the palace, to live in a small fire nation colony far away. Ianzok also began to loosen the restrictions on Aonani as long as his son promised to assist with the politics, hoping to raise his son to be a successful leader. The two also began to share time together for camping trips where they would hunt together, or attempt to out do each other's kills.

When Aonani was 15, Ianzok believed it was time to release the leash upon his son and let him live his life, although one time, Aonani was gone for far too long that he was declared missing. When Aonani returned, Ianzok revoked his son's freedom for a month before he returned it to him after Aonani proved he was capable.

Now Aonani is almost 18 and the companion of the Avatar, Ianzok has decided to take one step forward in his father-son relationship, thinking of becoming his son's master and teaching him everything Ianzok has ever learned about firebending.

Narration
Book One: Hidden



Legend tells of a time long ago, when Benders were in a majority and technology fell short of prehistoric. Some of these legends start with the simple musings of a person who would soon become one of those legendary heroes. Perhaps these are stories you have heard? One simply word is a key to these tales. This word is simply the "Avatar".

So, you have heard the stories? Good. This will make everything much more simple for all of us. The legend I am going to begin is about journeys of a young Avatar, still ignorant to the ways of the world. However, this story is much different. How? It is very simple, actually. This story is different from the others because it takes place in a world where the Avatar has been nothing more than the whispering of folklore and where bending is a scarce as flying lemurs.

I guess it would be best to start this legend off like the others, wouldn't it? Then, I shall.

Long ago, the Avatar was a symbol of hope and prosperity. That all changed when Avatar Hotaru passed away. The cycle was expected to begin again as it always had, but when no Avatar was born for several decades, the Order of the White Lotus decided that the time of the Avatar had come and passed. The world fell into disarray for many years until all four Nations banded together. They brought peace and prosperity to the dying world.

That was centuries ago. The world has long since become comfortable with the idea of no Avatar as the "bridge between the spirit world and the human world" was severed and drifted into myth. Benders eventually became scarce as well, the art of element control slowly fading into the distance. It was no one's fault and there was nothing anyone could do to stop it. However, the ancient Order of the White Lotus made a prophecy that the Avatar would be reborn into a new life when a time of war came to the world.

Sixteen years ago, that prophecy became a reality when a small baby named Asha Jin was born. She was taken to the White Lotus not long after being found bending water, earth, and air around her nursery. The members of the Order were overjoyed, but also very distressed. If the Avatar was alive and well, then that could only mean a terrible evil was brewing below the surface of the seemingly perfect world. After more than a decade and a half, that evil still has yet to manifest, until now...

Ianzok was seated in the throne room, which must've been a rather regal and traditional-looking place several decades ago, but under Ianzok's rule, it was modernized slightly. Instead of a large sea of flames behind the throne, it was replaced by several fireplaces that were symmetrically placed throughout the room. There was no need for light in this place, where the flames burnt 24/7. A large desk separated the Fire Lord's seat from where his visitors would seat themselves on comfy leather sofas.

"I was the Sun and you were the Moon..." Ianzok murmured to himself, looking down at a family photo, stroking at the glass where his late wife stood in the picture. "It's our son's birthday today... I don't know if this is the right choice for a present... but I've decided to train him myself."

The fire around him began to pulse.

"Hah... I know. Even I'm getting nervous. I wish you were here, Kenone. You would know what was best for Aonani." Ianzok closed his eyes, the fireplaces around him beginning to flare up like crazy, flames flickering with what fire would consider passionate determination.

There was a knock on the door. "Enter."

The palace butler, a bespectacled man older than Ianzok himself, stepped in. He was named Peng You, and was the best companion anyone could ever ask for. Loyal, steadfast, rather witty and sometimes downright protective to the point he wore you down. Ianzok would know, for he was cared for by Peng You when he was in Republic City. He wasn't a bender, but the old man sure had his own tricks up his incredibly crisp, clean sleeves. Peng You pushed up his round-rimmed glasses and handed Ianzok a piece of paper with a rather familiar handwriting on it, a disapproving frown on his face.

"Nani...?"

"It would appear to be so, Fire Lord. The young Prince seems to have run off again for his... daily activities." Peng You pouted, adjusting his gloves.

Ianzok snorted, rubbing his stubble. Whether his son knew it or not, Ianzok kept tabs of his son's various escapades and was rather proud of it. The child had yet to lose a fight, much like how Ianzok was when he was Aonani's age. Peng You's cough brought Ianzok back to his senses.

"I would hate to interrupt you, I know how much you see your younger self inside the Prince, but it seems that there are events taking place outside of the Fire Nation that may actually require your attention."

A situation outside of his jurisdiction that required his attention? This must be a rather dire problem. Something that would require the Leaders of the Four Nations and the Order of the White Lotus. "Is it...?"

"I'm afraid so, Fire Lord. This is regarding the Avatar, we received a short Morse that they will be arriving in the Fire Nation."

The fire around them seemed to hold a steady dance as Ianzok seemed to be contemplating the problem with his hands intertwined in front of his mouth. He then looked up at Peng You, who returned with his usual disinterested look, although Ianzok could tell even Peng You was worried.

"I trust you can hold the fort, You?"

"Most certainly, Fire Lord." Peng You dipped his head. "Shall I prepare the komodo rhino?"

"Yes, make sure Kasai is ready."

"What of the Prince? Shall he be told to remain in the palace?"

Ianzok got up from his seat, throwing his cape around his shoulders. He thought for a bit, then he shook his head. Peng You stared at him curiously.

"You don't mean..."

"I think it's time, don't you think, You?" Ianzok replied, a smile on his face. Peng You continued to look worried but nodded before he walked out the door.

"Oh goodie..."

"I heard that."

"Fire Lord, surely you will not be dressed as such?" Peng You sounded rather miffed as he observed the outfit that Ianzok was in as the Fire Lord descended down the stepped towards the Komodo Rhino that Peng You had saddled and even groomed.

"Surely I am, Peng." Ianzok said with a raised eyebrow, grabbing a fistful of the tattered cloak he had on and swinging it in front of him for full effect. Dressed in nothing more than that tattered cloak, comfy pants and boots, his bare-chest exposed for the world to see. "You expect me to dress as a King and let them know of my presence?"

"Of course not, Fire Lord... but to dress as lowly as a commoner..." Peng You shook his head but nonetheless bowed.

Ianzok boomed with laughter while he rubbed the Komodo Rhino's neck. "Lowly commoner, he says, Kasai. WAHAHAHA!"

Peng You sighed.

"Come on, girl. We need to get to town. You still remember the way yes?" Ianzok leaped onto Kasai's back with great ease as the Komodo Rhino grunted and trampled its hooves on the ground. "Atta girl! Now let's go, hiak!"

"Take care, Fire Lord. I'll keep the room hot for you." Peng You spoke as the Komodo Rhino sped past him, causing Peng You's white hair to be whipped all over and his suit in dust, which he merely dusted away with an unsurprised expression his face as if to say he expected this everyday.

"Thank you, YOU!" Ianzok replied, his voice carrying along in the wind as Kasai rumbled through the path. Ianzok pulled the cloak's hood over his head and held it against the wind's pull as the foliage and rocks blurred around him. "You were always the fastest out of them all, eh, girl?"

What he got in reply was a 'Brrrhm'.

They thundered into the main town, causing yelps of surprise from the people on the streets. As the hooded Ianzok reeled the reins in, Kasai slowed down into a trot and decided to observe the scenery around, sniffing about wherever food was involved. Once Kasai even nommed on a piece of meat and Ianzok paid for it. Of course, people weren't used to seeing a hooded man on a Komodo Rhino on the streets, so they stared, but continued on with their lives as if nothing happened. This was the state of the Fire Nation now, the most peaceful era it had ever experienced. Ianzok smiled beneath the hood, happy for his people.

Now then... where was that child?

"Hmm... Aonani, Aonani, wherever may that child be?" Ianzok murmured to himself, rubbing his trimmed beard before he chuckled to himself. "Ah... that rhymed. I need to remember to write that down somewhere."

Aonani

Nani smiled at the vendor in front of him. "Just a few please," Nani says, passing the entire bag of coins to the vendor. The man was surprised and when he tried to offer Nani more than he wanted, was shocked. "Keep it,"Nani says as he sees the man start counting out change.

Nani took up the flowers, and began walking, savoring the coolness he now felt as he wasn't heated from the competition. He walked with his head up, waving at people he knew and those he didn't, even passing off a little flower to a little girl who had fallen in the road and started crying.

Nani shook his head at her brother who looked rather ashamed for having pushed her. Nani continued walking towards the castle when he heard a slight commotion. Looking onto the main road, he saw a very familiar Komodo Rhino and figure riding on it. Nani paused. If people saw his father's face, they'd probably know who it was. If Nani was recognized by his father, he too would be recognized.

Nani looked around as he tried to find a place to go and took off in the opposite direction. He heard someone call out behind him, trying to get his atteniton. "Nani! Hey Nani," The familiar voice rang out down the street and Nani sighed inwardly as he stopped and turned. He hoped that his father hadn't heard Nani's friend.

"Hey Kato, heading home?" Nani asks as his friend comes up, slapping Nani where his scar was though Nani didn't feel it any different than he would have on the other shoulder.

Kato shrugged as he looked at Nani's flowers. "That day again? You should really let me meet your family man, for all we know you could be living on the street when you could be staying at my place," Kato says. Kato was slightly taller than Nani but with blonde hair and brown eyes. He had curly hair and was a year older than Nani.

Nani, who was trying to get the two along faster, pulled his friend rapidly, trying to hide behind him at the very least. "What? Do I look that homeless? I'm clean aren't I?" Nani jokes as the two walk. Kato doesn't see it though and looks at him for a moment, freaked. "I'm not homeless Kato, quite the contrary actually," Nani says rolling his eyes as he pulls his friend into an alley.

He knew the town better than most people and knew that this ended with a dead end to a locked door. The building was an old storage place though nobody used it to his knowledge. "Kato, I'll come out and see you and your mom tomorrow, okay? I just have to get some... thing taken care of here," Nani says as he pushes his friend back into the crowd and heads for the dead end. At least if his father encountered him back there, nobody else would know.

Nani took a seat, fiddling with the flowers as he remembered an old game he used to play with this little girl. He couldn't remember anything about her except that her hair was black. He began to remove each peddle individually, whispering under his breath. He hadn't ever met someone that was special to him yet other than his friends, and they were just that, friends.
