Avatar: Anti-Bender Oppression

Avatar: Anti-Bender Oppression

0 INK

We all know about Avatar Aang, how and Fire Lord Zuko brought the world together into a long era of peace. However, what happened after the war?

1,370 readers have visited Avatar: Anti-Bender Oppression since Salroka created it.

Introduction



Water. Earth. Fire. Air.
Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony.
Then, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.
Only the Avatar, master of all four elements could stop him.
But when the world needed him most, he vanished.


History speaks fondly of the merciful Avatar Aang, who was able to bring about the end to the war on the day of Sozin's Comet, sparing Fire Lord Ozai's life while still being able to stop him and save countless lives. Soon afterwards, he and the newly crowned Fire Lord Zuko, brought the four nations together into what is now today called the Republic City, in which technological advances have gone far beyond their years. A newly formed republic governs, two from each of the four different nationalities equally representing their people's point-of-view. However, with all the world's prosperity and achievement, comes enemies more intelligent and threatening then the ones before; the Equalists. People against benders and the bending arts, believing that all the world's problems have come from powerful benders, whose power could be easily used to harm others.

When the Equalists overcame the city, all known benders were immediately imprisoned and were made to go through blocking treatments everyday, which slowly took their ability to bend away. Once powerless, former benders were put into specialized asylums, where they'd stay under scrutiny for the rest of their lives. Some of those who managed to escape Equalist capture, prepare themselves for in inevitable war, while trying to keep their numbers up, as small as they might be already.


Image
Waterbending
One of the four elemental bending arts known, the ability to control water as well as its many forms. The people of the Water Tribe are the ones who exhibit this ability mostly, themselves severed into two sister tribes on the North and South pole, and the lesser known Foggy Swamp Tribe.Water is the element of change. The moon is the source of power in Waterbending, and the original Waterbenders learned from the moon by observing how the moon pushed and pulled the tides.The Water Tribes are the only people to not learn Bending from an animal. The fighting style of Waterbending is mostly flowing and graceful, acting in concert with the environment. Foggy Swamp Style Waterbending, however, is more rigid and straight - likely in concert with the often stagnant nature of swamp water. Waterbenders deal with the flow of energy; they let their defense become their offense, turning their opponents' own forces against them.

Image
Firebending
The ability to create and control fire. This talent is mastered by the people of the Fire Nation, as well as the lesser known Sun Warriors.Fire is the element of power, consisting of overpowering force tempered by the unflinching will to accomplish tasks and desires. However, the recently militaristic Fire Nation twisted this into Firebending being fueled by rage, hate, and anger. Firebending draws its power from the sun, and the first human Firebenders derived their Firebending techniques from the dragons. Firebending is notable for its intensive attacking style and general lack of adequate defense moves.

Image
Earthbending
The ability to manipulate earth and rock and all its various forms, a skill used by the people of the Earth Kingdom. Earth is the element of substance, making Earthbenders and their people diverse, strong, persistent, and enduring.The first Earthbenders, Oma and Shu, learned the art from Badgermoles. The key to Earthbending is utilizing 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.

Image
Airbending
The ability to control and manipulate currents of air, this elemental art is taught to the peaceful Air Nomads of the Eastern and Western Air Temples. Air is the element of freedom. The Air Nomads detached themselves from worldly problems and concerns, and finding peace and freedom was the key to solve their flaws in life. Airbenders continually sought for spiritual enlightenment, and, as a result, all children born into the Air Nomads were benders. The first Airbenders learned their art from the sky bison. The key to Airbending is flexibility and finding and following the path of least resistance. Airbending is notable for being almost entirely defensive, as well as the most dynamic of the four Bending Arts. Airbenders can overwhelm many opponents at once with large and powerful attacks that could prove fatal; however, due to the pacifist nature of the Air Nomads, such attacks are rarely used.

ONYA


Onya stood and winced as her side complained.

"Ow..." she muttered but left the tent none-the-less. She ignored her sister as she spoke to the old guy.
"im going for a walk" she said as she carried her bowl towards the food center.
"thank you the food was amazing" she said quietly to one of the cooks. She spotted Han and caught herself smiling....then blushing.

"what is wrong with me?" she wondered to herself with a sigh.

Gau smiled at her and headed off towards han to make him the same offer. He spotted Onya but ignored her for now and took a seat next across from Han. Smirking some at his childish act. "one thing with you Airbenders..you never grow up all the way..but im not here about that..the resistance helped you escape from prison once..well we the resistance is asking you to join us in freeing us from the Equalists so we can live in the open again..without being hunted like animals." Gau said to the airbender extending his hand to the younger man.

"What can I say, it's part of our charm?" Han quipped lightly before a serious expression crossed his face as he listened to Gau's offer. He nodded slightly.

"I guess I could join. I've been involved with several rebel groups already. What's one more?"

Mya watched as Gau offered Han a job and Han accepted. She intended to stay as well…now it was a matter of getting Onya to agree.

Onya watched the exchange as well and frowned.
“To hell with it” she muttered and ran her fingers through her hair as she watched Han discreetly.

Gau smiled and nodded. "welcome to the Resistance Han." With another respectful nod, Gau got up from the table and looked to see Onya was watching them. He nodded to her and headed off towards his own tent. it was slightly larger then the other living tents due to his size and once Gau entered the tent he sat down on the heavy wooden frame bed covered in hides and furs. Sighing some Gau ran his fingers through his hair and looked over at a near by end table. There was a small stand that held a shining necklace. Gau stared at it losing himself in thought once more.

"I've already joined the Resistance. Just a different cell," Han told Gau with a shrug before glancing around. He felt like he was being watched. He grinned when he saw the girls.

"Hey, you staying too?" he asked them cheerfully.

Onya jumped when Han spoke to her.
“I don’t know yet.” She said with a frown.
“I don’t want to risk Mya’s safety…” she murmured as she watched him. She went and sat across from him with a hesitant smile.” I never did thank you fro saving me…thank you Han-San” she said wile looking away.
“I am indebted to you” she murmured.

"Well, I can understand that. It is a dangerous world, especially for a self-taught Airbender or, at least, I assume she was self-taught. If it helps, this place is pretty secure and she'll be with other benders whenever she goes outside," he told her before blinking at her last couple of statements.

"No problem. You don't owe me anything. I just did what was right," he told her, scratching the back of his head awkwardly.

Onya’s face turned red and she looked away, taking what he said as a rejection.

“okay” she said and stood without another word and walked towards where the exit was. She needed a walk…away from people.

Ah, I see. LOL. Sorry for not joining your roleplay. I tried making a profile. I just never found the time... :(

Re: [OOC] Avatar: Anti-Bender Oppression

Re: [OOC] Avatar: Anti-Bender Oppression

Hey, sorry for not posting. Just been a little busy.

Re: [OOC] Avatar: Anti-Bender Oppression

Sorry everyone, but I'm leaving this roleplay since I haven't been able to reply in almost two weeks now. I wish the rest you all luck in this roleplay.

Re: [OOC] Avatar: Anti-Bender Oppression

Edit: Okay . . . do I need to change my last post or anything?

Re: [OOC] Avatar: Anti-Bender Oppression

Long as you are feeling ok. Rest up though so you get better :D

Re: [OOC] Avatar: Anti-Bender Oppression

Edit: Okay I managed up a post, I was trying to sleep and bam, I got hit with the urge to write despite being very tired.

Re: [OOC] Avatar: Anti-Bender Oppression

Resubmitting soon...actually i just did....

Re: [OOC] Avatar: Anti-Bender Oppression

I guessI 'll be posting tomorrow after school on Lan's show, and then see if I can get him to do something more interesting, or think of something 'Geese' can do.

Re: [OOC] Avatar: Anti-Bender Oppression

ahh thats right..i forgot entirely about the mix animals..thanks Ill edit properly for that..been a long time sense i watched avatar.

Re: [OOC] Avatar: Anti-Bender Oppression

@Corvan I think you ment Ostrich Horse. I think we all forget that this is the Avatar world. All animals are mixed save for the earth kings bear, which I believe would be dead by now.

Re: [OOC] Avatar: Anti-Bender Oppression

I like the story for this roleplay myself, but I still feel like there was a lot of life left in the other one too. . . .

Re: [OOC] Avatar: Anti-Bender Oppression

Okay...I'm going to have to drop out. I'm too confused. I honestly liked the original idea better, I don't see how you thought there wasn't enough to go with. What you're doing here doesn't make sense to me because Zuko and Aang wouldn't have allowed something like this to happen. I'm going to have to abandon my character.

Re: [OOC] Avatar: Anti-Bender Oppression

Seeing as this takes places after the formation of the Republic, I would assume that Airships are common forms of transportation now, as well as motor vehicles and such, as seen in the trailer for "The Legend of Korra". Correct?

If yes, I won't have to edit my post, if no, I'll have to edit it. xD

Re: [OOC] Avatar: Anti-Bender Oppression

I removed the Fire Nation from her profile and I have it as her family was descended from nobility, and they selfishly clung onto that idea, so she was still raised with the idea of aristocracy, but her family aren't actually nobles. Will that work?

Edit: Sorry, I went back over her profile and realized I missed a few spots, so I corrected everything I saw wrong. >.< Is it okay to refer to as where she once lived as the 'once Fire Nation?'

Re: [OOC] Avatar: Anti-Bender Oppression

@Jakuri: Just omit Fire Nation from her profile, all that exists now is the Republic City.

Re: [OOC] Avatar: Anti-Bender Oppression

I hope Xue fits the bill with the changes I made to her. . . .
