¬ Kaide Mordecai, born into a large elemental settlement is now the only one of his own. All of his kin were wiped from their planet due to a series of ingenious, calculated assassinations. Hierarchy was first eliminated, causing the populace to become crazed and scared. This resulted in the quick and cold turmoil of the Elemental planet.

"I was only seven when I killed my father. No, you didn't read that wrong. I killed him.
I can't remember the day, or the date, it just seemed so long ago. My father was in the Elemental Militia, an earth and fire bender in charge of soldier placement and tactics - I think that was right.. Well, that was what my mother told me. Anyway, I was only little, insolent and curious. There was an attack on their military base late one night, and my Father left to help correct the situation. I wanted to help, to be just like my Father, and followed him to the military base. If I knew what would happen I wouldn't of followed him. Maybe this would all be different. Damn me and my curiosity.

Enemy invaders were trying to breach the barriers and get into the City. They always tried to attack our city because that's where all the nobles were placed - the elemental masters. I watched from afar as out benders fought against the invaders. They had weird futuristic technology that we weren't familiar with at the time. It was easy to see that they had an advantage and were probably going to win. I ran in, for some reason thinking that I might be able to help. There, amidst the anarchy, I saw my father being held still at gunpoint by the enemy. I'll never forget that scene, the way my father looked, pale, white and sweat pooling down his face. The invader holding a gun to his forehead at arms length, clad in black robes; still life in battle.

I got scared, and angry, very angry. I lost it that day and I discovered the power I never ever knew I had. That was the first man I killed, that soldier, and I never got to see his face, never got to even know his name, before I ended his life. I was 7, and I didn't think twice about it... I wanted it all to stop. I didn't know how I was doing it, I had power stronger than anyone I had ever seen. It was so overwhelming, a burning sensation in my whole body and it hurt to a point of silent screams. That's when I realized that this power that I had, this godly power was killing me. My Father stopped me that day, from killing everyone, from killing myself.

I wish I knew that I had that power.
How I could of controlled it.
Maybe he would still be alive.

The years after that were the worst of my life. They managed to defeat the enemy invaders and send them retreating. But I was taken into labs and tested on. The nobles called me 'The Prophet' - Which in their tomes was an Elemental which had the power of the gods themselves. At first, I thought it was pretty cool - despite the untimely death of my Father - being called 'The Prophet' was pretty fun at the time.

In order to control my power, they had to encircle my upper right arm in a series of Markings. Some of these markings included; burns into the skin, ink tattooing and deliberate cutting of the skin to scar. Those were the worst years of my life. I was 10 when they started the marking process, and it took 5 long years to compete it. One day they would carve another symbol into my skin, and spend the whole week reading from tomes in order to enchant said markings. It was a long and grueling process, and I spent most of my spare time screaming and strapped to a table - but in the end of it, my power was channeled through the markings on my arm and I was no longer in danger of death from my power and was able to control it.
I spent 2 years training, every day would be the same routine. Wake up, train, eat, study, train, eat, sleep and repeat. The Nobles said it was for our settlement's advantage - to prepare us for any more enemy invasions.
But we had no idea what was to come.

In the dead of night, that's when they struck. The black-robed invaders somehow obstructed The Noble's headquarters and assassinated them in the dead of night. I don't know how they did it, maybe it was their advanced technology. I just wish we were smart and quick enough to counter at the time. The whole populace was in anarchy, everyone depended on me to save them. That 17-year-old 'prophet'. I tried fighting with the rest of the militia at first, but I was too inexperienced with my power, too insolent which caused me to act rash. A lot of lives were lost that day, and sometimes I wish that I had gone with them, too.

I escaped only barely, the memory of my burning planet imprinted in my brain and sure to stay with me forever. I have nightmares of that day, still. But there is nothing I can do about it. I don't set out to get my revenge on the invaders, I don't even bother to see and find if there are any of us left. Because I know there isn't.

What a fucking prophet I was."
