Eris could be the called the epitome of beauty... or so people say. But they aren't entirely off, for she is graced with a naturally slender yet firm body that are just enhanced with mile long legs. Her form is also curvaceous, but not overly so, just enough for the hills to hug her body. So one could say, her physique is more of a mature sorts- very womanly. But dont be entirely deceived, because under the fitting blazer, is a toned body, which obviously been earned by vigorous training given by faceless.
However, surprisingly, very little scars mar her skin, leaving it fair and white.
Which is another thing to note, despite Eris' origin, the earth kingdom, she takes on a more Northern water village appearance. Her long blue hair, and icy cerulean eyes just provoke the idea. But no matter, she has nothing to do with the water tribe, she was just born different, which first showed itself as a curse, but now she sees it as a blessing.


"The law of the world is survival of the fittest, so the people who die, were weak, and its only natural for the weak to be weeded out and perish."

Eris, from afar, appears as kind as she is beautiful. But beauty only goes skin deep... However despite this, many who dont know her power or origins love her, since she seems to understand their pain. They swarm her like a bunch of dogs waiting to be fed, to be taken care of. This is understandable, why? Well, while Eris is capable of keeping a perfectly normal side (Warm, kind, sane), she is also great at giving out false love. Her skills of retaining this warm smile is great, because she enjoys having people under her feet, begging, and little did the victim know that inside lays a monster that tends to come out frequently..

For her second and most truest face... a sadist who usually lacks empathy for people of whom she deems weak. This goes to say that she lives by a well known philosophy "The strong survive and the weak die". She enjoys putting her enemies through great pain, both physically and emotionally. She has no qualms about killing innocent people to get what she wants, even being extremely cruel while doing so, and rationalizes her behavior with the Darwinism idea. She is also known to treat her subordinates well, letting them do as they please, which in turn inspires their intense loyalty and devotion. However at the same time, she doesn't hold back her anger, especially toward the lower ranks of Faceless. She will easily rip away her facade of "kindness" and become, what she might call herself, a "bitch". But she also likes to call herself a warden of faceless.

Eris also has a passionate love for fighting and holds special respect for strong opponents, which she shows rarely but does so openly when it happens. Her love of battle has occasionally inspired her to take actions that would incite more hatred against her from the citizens, in the hopes of being able to put down more rebellions. Basically she’s just a violent warmonger who believes in natural selection and wants to be an agent of it. But at the same time, her love for faceless is overwhelming, but only because she believes in their ways. As a result, She would do most anything at the leader's command.
But of course, some things she'll simply do herself, like torture. No one has to ask her for that~ Now despite her usual lack of empathy, due to her acting abilities (along with the fact that she isnt entirely sane) she has the ability to feel what her victims feel. But instead of feeling bad, she uses that knowledge to stab even more pain and harm- shes quite perfect at it really.


β€œOne of her greatest talents was empathy; no sadist can aspire to perfection without that diagnostic ability."

L I K E S
  • Faceless - Of course, she loved them as a child. And this "love" is the only heart warming emotion she'll feel then and now.
  • Pain of others - Being a torture, she finds people screams and tears like a drug. Besides, she thinks its only for the best~
  • Puppets - They illustrate just what her bending does, control.
  • Pets - Not exactly animals, but the pets she brings in from the streets. The ones she play with, and trick- using their emotions and desires.
  • The Strong - Anyone could fit in this category really. But rarely does anyone but her group does so. She respects them.

D I S L I K E S
  • Children - Most annoy her, because they are the personification of innocence. But even then, she loves playing around with them as well.
  • Hope - Only when she rips it away does she like it.
  • Disobedience - She believes pets should be obedient. If not, it'll only lead to punishment... which she doesnt mind too much.
  • Being Pushed Around - Her nightmare. To be stepped on, she would kill to get rid of that feeling.

Q U I R K S
  • Playing around with people's feelings/hopes - Her method of torture. Her other method of luring people in, tricking them into loving her, and decieving them that she "loves" them. Its merely a game.
  • Acting kind, luring people in - A way of collecting pets.
  • Taking in "pets" - Around her abode are several humans, benders and/or nonbenders. With the faceless's permission, she is allowed to take in a few strays" and using them as her own pets/servants. Surprisingly, they arent under her control, no they love her. Why? Well she is a master of the mind~

S K I L L S
  • Acting - The only way to trick and play. Her smiles and kindness seems purely genuine.
  • Silver Tongue - She is quick on her feet like she is her tongue.
  • Combat and Weapon Specialist - Of course one has to be knowledgeable even without their bending. Especially her, with her limits.
  • Tactician - Being a general, she must be capable in assisting the leader's choices.
  • Strong Willed - To be a sadist and a master will bender, one must be in complete control of their own will. And for her, she has nothing to fear or doubt.
  • Psychological torturer - Just a hobby she got good at~

B I R T H P L A C E
Si Wong Desert

H I S T O R Y
Eris always jokes about her past. Says that she was traumatized as baby, abused and had a motherless home. But no, in truth, she believes her past was, in most part, completely normal- or at least better.

Now Eris was born in the Si Wong Desert (much to people's surprise) and was loved by her poor mother and father. They were humble Earth Benders by what she remembered, and was always kind enough to give a helping hand... even if those hands were full. EVEN if they were nonbenders. This kindness resulted in a nice reputation, but in the end of things, they became complete push overs. People who had plenty came and used her family for their own benefit.

It was terrible and pathetic for her to witness. To see her father smile despite the fact that dirt was being kicked all over him... Where were his pride? Her mother merely laughed when other women dismissed her skills. Where was her tongue! She thought, but dismissed it. She saw no... true harm in this, they were just a bunch of push overs, they still were alive and "content". Only Eris realized she wasnt, eventually when she got older, people assumed she was like her parents. Stupid, foolish. It angered her, she didnt want to be associated with that, she wanted to be different. She wanted to be strong, impossible to defeat, to be able to squash these fools under her feet. To be able to control them But she was only allowed to stare, imagining their painful demise, while continuing to be laughed and pushed at. She was sick of it.

But no matter how much she tried to convince her parents to change, to use their strength to show how strong they really were, they remained the same, weak. And even worse, they continued to drag her down with them. Due to this, she continued to dream about power, wondering when her wishes were going to come true. When she was going to stop being contracted to the name of "push over"... Being forced on the lower side of the food chain.

Fortunately, She eventually became free, when a bunch of high end soldiers came around, asking her parents of a few "favors." The same thing happened, her parents easily obliged, but this time, instead of dirt to the face- a few laughs here and there, those "favors" in the end, killed them. They were simply sent on a disguised mission due to the "stronger" solders laziness. This left Eris alone. Sad? Happy?

"I told them." Eris declared, tears running down her victorious filled face. She laughed and cried about it for hours. Whatever thoughts came through her head, while old dreams and desires began to resurface. It was then and there that she finally unleashed her prodigy like bending- killing the lazy fools for what they have done. They traumatized her, leading her to become insane. She wanted revenge...- sike! She was just crazy from the beginning Killing her parents? No. For freeing her.
She simply granted them what they deserved- what all weaklings deserve, death. They would eventually perish anyways.
That was her at the "fragile" age of 9. Afterwards, due to her unmatched skill at such a tender age, word spread like wild fire, and it was due to that when faceless found her. An angle in disguise, she always says.
Now, iimagine when she started to grow, eventually coming to the hands of the faceless, her mind began to wander further from innocence. The results were monstrous. She enjoys screams and tears, which blissfully remind her of her strength. Her place in the food chain.
And she would like to remind the world that she wasn't going to leave anytime soon.

In the city of Ba Sing Se, a mandatory gathering for the city has been called. An execution of several benders shall be conducted at midday. All citizens of every rank are to attend. The Supreme Faceless One will grace the city with his presence as he conducts the execution of the criminal benders.

The grand general Tobimasu Rakka shall be in attendance as well. Any uprisings will be put down and all individuals involved will be taken into custody while leaders themselves shall be executed. Any citizens not found in attendance will be arrested. The execution platform is not to be mounted by any citizen.

As written by Toshio Tasuki, Leader of the Resistance

hesfweglloThe resistance will be in attendance of the execution as required by the Supreme One, however, we shall not be there for the same reasons. Five of our own benders shall be in attendance. Each bender knows their mission already. All non benders who are members of the resistance must be prepared and ready to act upon the signal from the fire bender.

hesfweglloThe two earth benders we have are tasked with subduing the general who is to be present. The fire bender is tasked with protecting those who were to be executed after the water bender frees them. The water bender is to then help as she sees fit. The air bender is tasked with protecting the crowd from the Faceless Ones' soldiers.

hesfweglloThe goal is to free those who are to be executed, then vanish before the Supreme Faceless One and or the general cause major damage to our group of rebels. Any individual who is injured must immediately be evacuated. Any individual in the crowd who is arrested must immediately be freed before they are taken to the jail or the palace. Any individuals who go beyond walls are beyond our ability to rescue as of right now.

hesfweglloThere is to be no encountering of the Supreme Faceless One. We have been given word that the Supreme Faceless One has decided not to attend from a reliable source. Should he make an appearance, the mission is to be aborted and we shall count our losses and savor our lives.

hesfweglloTo every individual who has lost their sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, siblings to the Faceless Ones, we hope to keep these seven benders from loosing their lives like your loved ones lost theirs. May the spirits have mercy on us all.

Fire lord Dekan is welcoming Faceless generals Eris and Secca into his palace. All individuals in the palace are to be in attendance. The fire lord shall retain his seat on his throne. Son, Prince Aonani shall retain his seat to the immediate right of his father on the upper dais.

All servants and slaves are to be in attendance. Servants are to bow on their knees on either side of the walkway in rows with as many servants in each as needed. Slaves are to stand by the outer walls and keep their eyes down the entire procession and are not to stand on any raised platform. Servants and slaves are to wear their ceremonial attire.

Before servants take their places, the windows are to be opened up. Any servant or slave not in the proper attire or position are to be arrested. Servants nor slaves are to move during the ceremony whatsoever, neither are they to speak unless spoken to. Should a servant or slave draw the attention of either general for any reason, they are to be punished as the general sees fit.

Should any slave or servant see Prince Aonani on his way to the ceremony, be sure to encourage him towards the ceremony should he stop for any reason.

The avatar and her friend Seok, the blessed earth bender, have made it to the city of Ba Sing Se. The two continue to search for the blessed bender that the avatar is drawn to because of their destinies. They unknowingly are staying a street away from the rebellion's headquarters and are very close. Nor does Seok or Hyo know of the execution or the rescue mission.

Finally, today was the day. So much planning, so much scheming has finally come to fruition. Today he'll not only capture some of the rebels best benders, but he'll also be getting his daughter back. Icing on the cake. The benders to be executed today are merely the bait for the bigger fish, the rebels. He had to wait for so long. It had to be long enough for Naomi to be accepted into the rebels, and trusted enough to be allowed on high priority missions such as rescuing benders. And now all his turtle ducks were lined up a row.

Tonrar sat on his throne, his chin resting on his fist as he leaned on one of the arms of the throne, while his free hand was tapping vigorously on the other arm. He was soooo bored. He hated having to stay at one palace like this. His mind wondered, thinking about how things are going in the Fire Nation. He really must find him a puppet to put on the throne. This is work for lackies. He should be out there doing the fun stuff, like torture, and murder. But it's surprisingly difficult to find a suitable meat puppet.

Not only do you have to find some fool competent enough to be able to run things without him holding their hand, but not so ambitious as to pose a threat to him. It's a delicate balance to be sure. He really did luck out with Dekam. Not only is he as uninterested in ruling as he is, but his true interest is death, and destruction, which Tonrar can provide a lot of. The best of both worlds. He has had thoughts of appointing one of his other generals as the king, or queen, or whatever Sicca wants to be called.

He's unsure if any of them are prepared to rule though. Eris, though his trusted second-in-command, is more likely to just destroy the entire kingdom, Sicca would go insane from the boredom of the dreadful meetings, and then there's Tobimasu. Though he might be a better choice, as he's not as clinically insane as Eris, though Tonrar isn't one to talk, and he's more mature than Sicca, but still, he'd probably just go into an endless sleep from all the sitting around, and doing nothing. No, for now it'd probably be best if he stayed in charge. No matter how much he disliked it.

His deep thoughts were soon interupted by the arrival of a servent. "M-my lord, the prep-preperations are complete for the executions." The servent nervously reported. Tonrar lifted his chin off his fist, and sat up straight. "Oh goody! You'll want a front row seat for this Ace! It'll be a show to die for!" He stated with a bone chilling laugh. "O-of course sir." The servent answered, becoming increasingly nervous. Sweat was just rolling off his face like a waterfall. "Why so nervous lad? This is a happy ocasion! Like getting a new polar bear puppy, or watching said puppy rip the face off of someone!"

"Here, let's have a smile."
His tone became increasingly menacing. He held out his hands, and began twisting them around not too disimilar to a puppet master. The servent's body tensed up, and began contorting in unatural ways beyond his control, causing great pain. The servent's pained expression then went away as a large, unsettling grin much like the one Tonrar's mask swept across his face. With Tonrar laughing the entire time. He then released him from his bloodbending grip. "See doesn't it feel good to smile?! Now go find General Rakka, make sure he's prepared for today."

Seok took a big whiff of the city air, taking in all the smells of Ba Sing Se. It smelled like home. He was so surprised by how much he's missed the smells, the sights, and the sounds. It felt like home. He hasn't thought about the city, let alone returning to Ba Sing Se in years. Despite how long he's been away, he must say nothing much has changed. It all seems like the same it was five years ago. He watched as Hyo reacted to their new settings, slightly grinning at her excitment.

She was rather adorable when she acted like this. When she turned to face him, and caught a big mouthful of her hair. "Smooth." He chuckled as she spat it out. "Yeah, I guess it's kinda cool. Honestly I haven't been this far into the inner rings too much. I grew up in the slums, I'm kinda low class. Don't tell anybody." He smirked as he rubbed the back of his head. And then he noticed that she was already back on the move. "I swear she's just a hyperactive rabaroo." He muttered to himself as he followed closely behind her.

Despite the cost, he is glad that she now has a chance to see the world outside the air temples. She seems pretty happy after all. Though he did wish that they're first stop wasn't in the Faceless capital of the world. Is that so much to ask? He watched their surroundings carefully in case of trouble. Though he was doubtful that they could actually do anything if push comes to shove. They are, after all ok Earthbenders at best. They probably couldn't hold their own against the Supreme Faceless One, or any of his generals, let alone escape a city under their thumb in a hurry if something happened.

Though he realizes, as much as he's dreading it, that they'd have to face them sooner or later, but he'd rather it been when Hyo is all juiced up with her full avatar power. She finally stopped, and allowed him to catch his breath. "Why are ya asking me? Aren't you the one in charge?" He replied with a grin. He ran his fingers through his dirt covered hair, and scratched the back of his head as he looked around. "I'm a big advocate of the age old 'wing it' technique. Think you can master that boss lady?" He smirked.

He noticed that the streets were rather empty, with very few people around. Rather unusual if he did say so himself. "Hmm, the sun's up, the streets shouldn't be this quiet, or empty." He stated as he scratched his chin. "Think that might lead to something?" He asked. He noticed an older man walking past them in a rather big hurry. "Hey buddy! Where's the fire? Where is everyone?" He asked the man. "Huh?" The man turned to face them, and gave them a good once over. Seok gave him a rather big, and fake smile to maybe put him at ease.

"You kids best get going, there's a mandatory gathering today. The Faceless Ones are executing more benders. You best be along unless you want to be next." He explained, and then ran off towards the gathering. "Fantastic. I'm guessing we found our blessed bender. Got any ideas on how to do this? I'm not too keen on taking on a crap ton of Faceless Ones. Or at least until you know more elements." He stated. "Or when you learn to do that cool glowing eye thing Avatar's do. This might be a good time to exercise that neutral jing crap Earthbenders are supposed to be good at, no matter how much I hate it."

It was in the middle of day- the town was bustling with travelers, merchants and other folks who had to get business done as it was way of life, especially for the lower class. So it was just a normal day, until a rare sight began to unfold before them. A carriage decided to make its way through the streets, forcing the busy people to part, but it didn't really matter, they ending up staring curiously anyways.
And what the people could tell, the carriage appeared to be foreign so they could only imagine who was riding the luxurious piece of transportation- another leader? No, it couldn't be possible, for chaos wreaked most of the other nations, so the villagers had no idea what to feel other then fear.
And they couldn't be more correct, for two of the most fearsome generals rode the carriage, Sicca and Eris- servants of faceless. Usually, they were known to be the harbingers of some sort of omen, but today they simply had work to do, and this ruined at least one of the two's mood.

"This is going to be rather bland... and I highly doubt Dekam would like to see us, or at least me.." Eris finally said, chuckling a bit as she pictured the sadistic ash general, "What do you think Sicca?" A soft smile pulled at her lips, a real one this time, as she waited for a response. But it was then when the carriage stopped and she peered outside, only to see the grand palace. As per use, servants lined the very walk way to greet them, a sort of cliche really.
'How courteous..' Eris thought, as she slipped out of the carriage with natural grace and beauty. The servants could only agree though they trembled in fear while taking secret peeks. She was wearing her usual uniform, a sort of twist on the usual military style, which was a high colored blazer that reached her mid thigh, paired with long boots and topped with a general's hat. They were made to hug her form nicely, but the material was pliable enough for her to move with ease- It was quite hard not to stare.

"Come Sicca, we can't keep them waiting~" She said, before striding down the path towards the emperor's room, 'More like puppet emperor.' She added on, with a little smirk. Yes, after faceless has taken over the fire nation, the leader was replaced with Dekam. Of course he was only a stand in for the real master was Tonrar. It was quite genius if she had to say anything about it.

Stepping into the main room, she stopped before the throne, kneeling in a "respectable" manner (But it was only for show, she found it humorous.) "Emperor Dekam.." She greeted, before her cerulean eyes slid towards his.. son, "Prince Aonani.." The named caused her eyes to go cold, but her smile remained in tact, she never dropped her facade... as she says.. its unprofessional.

"Thank you for allowing us to come here," She said, her sultry like voice filled with "gratefulness" "We have much to discuss."

Nani stood, his nerves taunt as he waited for Avaria. He was on time that day for once and it was wonderful. Nani looked around not to see her only to have his friends who knew who Nani was looking for shrug in their not knowing where she was. Nani frowned slightly though his face lost all expression as his father entered.

Everyone bowed as he walked. "Aonani Eian, stop standing there like a lost puppy and take your seat before I do something about it," The fire lord whispered quietly so only Nani heard him. Nani ducked his head and said softly, "Sorry my lord, I was merely worried I forgot something." Nani stated. He turned to his father, bowing as everyone else was before standing upright and stepping into the hall. His father took his seat and everyone moved back from their bow at a wave of the fire lord's hand.

Nani leaned against the wall and sighed as he ran a hand through his hair. He hated when his father did that. It was only a display of his power over Nani and everyone already knew that. Nani breathed deeply, praying Avaria made it on time, lest his father find the bright idea to punish either one of them since he was acting as the one who had requested her service prior and immediately after the ceremony so she would have to stand near him.

Aonani looked into a nearby mirror as he stood outside. He noticed the purple bruise on his cheekbone as if it was one of the special powders that women wore as make up. He hated it but couldn't very well hide that one like he could the ones on his sides and stomach. Those were only ever seen by his servants who knew better than to ask and his father who was often the cause of a good deal of them.

Nani turned as he heard Avaria and smiled at her. Nani stood up straight as she approached. Had they been in a more private setting, he would have wrapped his arms around her. Instead, he gave her a slight bow before standing straight up again.

Nani didn't look from Avaria's face, sure that if he did, he would lose all sense of composure and he would not be able to regain it. "You had me worried. I thought he had changed his mind and did something," Nani whispered to Avaria softly so only she would hear. Only those who didn't know the two would believe they were standing a little too close ever since Nani took a small step to make the distance even less.

"Believe it or not, I was on time for once," Nani whispered with a gleeful smile though he didn't say why he was on time. He would be on time to keep Haruki from getting hurt. He was not going to risk having his friends hurt. Regardless of what others seemed to think of Nani, he wasn't one to let others suffer for his own actions.

"Yes, you may, and to be honest, I'm counting on it now," Nani stated softly as he looked down at her, noticing the smile as if she had outright shouted she was happy. Nani took her hand in his and gave a small squeeze before dropping it and walking back into the room. To his dismay, Eris, Sicca, and the others with them had already arrived and were about to enter the room.

Nani walked with purpose to his seat, as if meaning to do what he did. His father gave him a look that said they'd "talk" later. Nani pretended to not see it though he saw the ash rise in heat and Nani knew it was going to happen regardless.

Nani took his seat, pretending that Avaria wasn't beside him and didn't have an reason to be looked at. He managed to keep most of the stiffness from his body as he moved, aching all over from the night before. He prayed to the spirits that Avaria didn't see it though, she didn't need that. He hated it, but he knew that if he didn't, his father might do something stupid or ridiculous.

As Eris entered, Nani watched, his eyes showing how he bored the matter though he refused the urge to glance at Avaria. As the fire lord was spoken to, he stared back at the guests as if he couldn't care less about who was before him, though he did at least have the courtesy to not look bored like his son.

Nani looked to Eris as she spoke his name, hating the full name. Nani noticed the coldness and exchanged them with a cold smile of his own, playing the game of politics he had played all his life. He really only wanted to heat his hands and fight her, he could possibly take her, but Nani didn't dare. He would only be put down by whichever other general decided to take him. He'd probably end up getting taken to the Supreme just because of his luck.

The fire lord's response was as enthusiastic as a squished bugs. "It is an honor to welcome you to our palace. Thank you for joining us. We do have much to discuss, yet first, we must celebrate your arrival. Please, enjoy exploring the palace at your leisure until the grand dinner we are holding for you tonight. Should you need anything, our slaves and servants are your own. My son is also available to guide you should you so please," the fire lord stated stoically.

Nani bit back his response, only clenching his fists in an indication he was unhappy with the statement. Hopefully, neither Eris nor Sicca would want him to guide him.

"I shall see you tonight," The fire lord stated before standing. He looked to Nani. "You are to be sure our guests are not spared any luxury," The fire lord stated. Nani looked up at him and only gave a subtle nod after he saw his father's fury mount in his eyes.

The fire lord scowled at his son before leaving the room without a second glance to the new guests. Nani stood as well and motioned for everyone who had still been kneeling ever since the generals arrived. Nani approached the generals hoping and not hoping Avaria followed him at the same time. Hoping so she would be closer to him, not hoping so she would not draw any attention to herself, though Nani would not control her or her actions.

"Should you need anything, please inform me. Tonight, one of the servants who helps prepare you for the dinner shall guide you to your seats. Is there anything you need as of right now?"
Nani asked softly with a small bow. It was evident in his tone that he really had no wish to help them and that he couldn't care less what they did though his features showed nothing but the political facade that was required between royalty and the military in their new world.

Feeling his warmth, even for a fleeting moment, made her happy, thus Avaria's eyes gleamed with love, but concealed worry and guilt filled her being. 'Its my fault he might get in trouble..' She thought, as she followed diligently behind like a slave should, 'If only I was more humble..' Guilt ate at her mind, as she remembered her desire to look better- how foolish. A breathless apology escaped her lips, before she slipped into the destined room, silent. Her eyes were focused solely on the Prince's shoes as she used them to guide her to their seats, but as she did so, she saw the two "honored" guest in her peripheral. 'The generals..' She thought, carefully analyzing the situation as best as she could while she took her seat behind Nani. Now it wasn't hard to tell, in fact her body felt it- 'These people are dangerous.'
Their auras screamed power, similar to that of the fire lord... It made her body tense, her guard up. It was moments like these when she wished her katana was by her side... Avaria felt so vulnerable, but... Her clear eyes peeked at the prince's back, causing her body to relax... 'Yes.. his Aura is definitely different..' It was strong, and kind- very comforting...
Taking a quiet breath, she continued to remained situated as a statue, like she was told to.



Image

Eris resisted a snicker as the "oh so great" prince entered- his response excellent. So much so, that it made her wishes to continue the torture grow stronger but fortunatly enough, with the little sanity she had left, she decided not too- for now that is.

"It is an honor to welcome you to our palace. Thank you for joining us. We do have much to discuss, yet first, we must celebrate your arrival. Please, enjoy exploring the palace at your leisure until the grand dinner we are holding for you tonight. Should you need anything, our slaves and servants are your own. My son is also available to guide you should you so please,"

ImageShe smiled, "grateful", at his "kind" words, but she knew better- they all did. "Thank you Firelord." She bowed her head in respect, merely playing her part, "We humbly appreciate your offer." While she finished her sentence, her eyes found Nani's and for a moment, a menacing smirk pulled at her lips, before returning to its kind smile. "Now I would love to explore this lovely palace even further.." Her words lingered, an obvious intent filling her words, "Hopefully your son doesn't mind the request, but whats better then the resident himself to be our very own guide~" Her eyes closed in a smile, "We are in your care, Prince Eian"

What fun she will have~!

Nani found himself wanting to stand and just leave though he felt Avaria's closeness even if she was a small distance from him. He had really wanted to be able to just keep her from coming to the welcoming ceremony all together but in the end, it wasn't able to happen since the demon he was supposed to call a father made him.

Nani knew he was treading on dangerous ground, knew he was likely to do something really stupid or say something even stupider, but to be honest, he really didn't care. He wanted to get these generals away from his friends that were in his room, especially Avaria. She had to leave before either general took an interest in her.

Nani gave the fakest royal smile he could to Eris as she asked him to assist in the tour. He knew that she was only trying to mess with his head or something. There were plenty of other residences to carry them throughout the palace and plenty who knew the palace better than Nani did since he was constantly trying to get out and away from it.

After Nani's formal offer and his standing before Eris and his bow and all, Nani stood, finding he wanted to change out of his formal attire more than getting away from Eris. It was so uncomfortable. "Shall we move to the gardens?" Nani asked, finding it was the nicest place that he would relax in without showing Eris his favorite place.

Nani turned to Avaria, giving her a nod and a little look, hoping she would take it as a dismissal since he couldn't outwardly say it. Princes normally had an entourage and he hated having one, yet if he could have her say she was busy... She could go. He could let her go. He pleaded with his eyes before turning from her, not looking back as he led the way, trying to avoid conversation and praying that Avaria took his silent prayer to heart.

Nani led the group down two hallways before emerging into the beautiful gardens Nani had grown up in. "We have small turtle ducks here that visit on occasion at their leisure. Is there anywhere else you would like to visit?" Nani asked as he leaned against a large boulder and tugged at his too tight collar. He stopped messing with it when he saw the bandages he wore beneath. They covered the symbol that had appeared on his chest back when he first fire bended. It was small and slightly red though he knew Avaria's to be slightly blue for whatever reason. Possibly their element?

Nani dropped his hand, trying to act nonchalant as he studied Eris with obvious disinterest though on the inside he was beating with energy. She wasn't going to hurt him, at least he was pretty sure she wasn't going to hurt him. Dekam wouldn't be upset if she did hurt him though... Nani sighed as he looked up at her and pretended to smile like he cared though the fakeness was very obviously seen through, as if he had a new attitude about the thing after some thought though it was clear he didn't.

Nani was now leaning on the boulder with his arms crossed as he waited for a response. She could do so many things that he couldn't. Deadly and dangerous too. Will bending was so horrible.

Tonrar was rather impressed by his daughter's attack. He was quite amused when the ice started to creep up his body, and encase him. He gave no reaction other than a slight giggle. When Naomi left the dias to regroup with the blessed airbender he broke free of his entrapment with little effort. He doubled over, and began laughing uncontrolably. He shot up with his arms held out wide, and laughed even louder. He watched as his gravity bending general stopped Naomi in her tracks, trying to get her to surrender peacefully. Adorable, absolutely adorable. He watched the chaos unfold, growing even more giddy.

Seok was barely holding it together, geting wounds left, and right from his eshaustion. He saw the general stop Naomi in her tracks, and he grew angry. He began pulling up rock slabs from the ground, launching various soldiers high in the air. He jumped forward a bit, and stabbed his hand into the ground, causing a line of twisted rock columns to propel forward, and divide Naomi from the general. Seok stood up, and sighed, sweat began to roll off his forehead. "You sure know how to welcome a guy back in town Naomi." He huffed at her.

Seok's blessed mark could clearly be seen at this point. He swiped his arms towards the general, sending one of the columns straight at his chest. "I hope you had a plan on getting out of here! Me, and my.....friend need to leave." He said pointing towards Hyo. "We need to get her out of here. I'll explain later, but she can't stay, none of us can." He ordered at her. Tonrar stepped off the stage, and strolled over towards them. Seok saw this, and sighed. "I...I can whip us up some cover, if you can lead us out of here. I don't have the energy for a third round."

"Leaving so soon? And without a kiss goodbye? I'm hurt." Tonrar smirked as he skipped through the battlefield without a care in the world. Seok glared daggers at the Supreme Faceless One. "Right, because everything that's happen here in the last twenty minutes have shown that we care if you're hurt or not." He smirked with a slight laugh. Seok stood ready in his fighting position. Though he was running on empty, he'd still go at him with all he had left, no matter how little that was. "Please boy. Like you could beat me even on your best day. Besides I don't want to kill you, that'd be too boring."

Seok rolled his eyes, and stomped on the ground, bringing up another slab of rock. He fired it at him, but this time his attack was rather weak, and sluggish. It showed his exhaustion. It was easily dodged by Tonrar. Seok almost fell over from making the motions of his attack. "Wow, I really felt that one." Tonrar smirked, followed by his renewed laughter. "I'm open to ideas. Seriously, I'm up for anything." Seok huffed. "You could just stop fighting, and enjoy your eventual never ending torture." Tonrar suggested. "No one's talking to you!"

Qannik stood in the palace next to Eris as they were taken to the throne room, and before the Fire Lord. Pfft, Fire Lord, he was merely a puppet. Qannik gave the Fire Lord a slight bow when Eris did, but it was more for formality rather then actual respect. "Yeah, sure, we're ohhhh so grateful." He said rather disinterested in everything. He rolled his eyes as Eris spoke. "You are such a kiss ass. I hope you know that." He whispered in her ear. "Sure, let's take a tour. It's not like some of us have something better to do." He stated, followed by a quick glance at Eris, obviously directing his comment towards her.

He noticed the looks Nani was giving one of his servents, and looked at them with a slightly raised eyebrow. As the Prince began their tour, Qannik flashed a wolfish grin to the servent Nani was making strange looks at, and followed it with a wink. He followed behind the Prince as he led them to the garden. He looked around rather disinterested in everything the Prince was saying, and showing them. He couldn't careless about all this.

When the Prince asked if they'd like to go anywhere else his wolfish grin returned on his face in full force. "What about that cute water tribe servent from the throne room? What's she up to? I do like a little tail from the poles." He said with a rather proud grin on his face. "I'm assuming she's water tribe, I have an eye for my own." He then folded his arms, and continued to grin. "But I'm guessing the brown-noser here as somewhere else she'd rather see so she can fakely complament it to try, and make herself look better."

Naomi could not do anything more upon getting hit except fall to the ground. She groaned softly as she lay there for a moment before hearing the most terrifying thing ever. A scream. From the girl who was with Seok. Naomi watched from where she was as the general Tobimasu, apparently alright, pulled his sword from the girl's stomach.

Naomi froze as she watched the girl's body fall and knew immediately things had gone from bad to worse. She watched as the girl's blood spread out before something unexpected did happen. A slightly blue aura like thing flew from the girl's body, circling overhead the crowd before diving towards Naomi. She wasn't sure what it was and wanted to roll away, but refrained from doing so for fear of getting trampled or hit again.

Naomi did cover her face with her arms as the aura flew straight into her giving Naomi a warm feeling flowing through her. Strength washed through Naomi and she felt something she had never felt before. A whisper in her ear told her what to do and she obeyed, unsure what else to do. Her body rose and she knew it was because of air bending. Her own air bending.

Naomi looked down at her father, but it wasn't just her eyes she felt. It felt as if hundreds of eyes were looking with her. Naomi raised her hands and she bended. A wave of wind blew every soldier by her father away, scattering them onto the nearby rooftops and the alleys. She turned to where Haru was surrounded and in a moment, every soldier around Haru was gone, scattered again.

Naomi then turned to Seok, bending the general from his hands and sending the gravity bending general into her father. Naomi reached with her air bending, grabbing those who had fought with her that day and speeding them all off away from her father and the gravity bending general. When they were a few hundred feet from the inner wall, she gently set down those with her before falling to the ground, passed out from exhaustion. As she went unconscious though, she heard a whisper in her ear, saying I give my abilities to you so that you might do what I could not.

A few minutes pass before the fire bender from the resistance emerged from a home and gestured frantically to Haru. "Come on, get off the street," the bender gestures frantically. He sees the body and stills his frantic gesturing before gaining a steely resolve and looking to Seok, knowing he was the one with Hyo. "I can carry her if you'd rather," He states softly. He waits for a response, doing as asked or told, then goes inside to lead the group underground to safety.

Nani lost his temper. He knew he did as soon as he snapped. He would have hit Qannik had it not been for Uruki who grabbed Nani at the last second. Uruki was stronger for whatever reason and pushed Nani back. Nani didn't look at him as he pushed back until he heard Uruki's words, "Prince Nani if you don't stop they'll only hurt her."

Nani heard that and his movements froze. He looked to Uruki who let him go slowly. "Thank you, you are free to go," Nani stated, his calm returning. He made sure to give Uruki a pointed look so his friend would know to get out of there quickly before he drew attention to himself.

Uruki left with a bow to the generals leaving Nani there looking down. He knew he had given them what they wanted. He had done exactly that. At least he hadn't screamed bloody murder. Avaria would be disappointed in him probably. He only drew more attention to her from his reaction.

He looked up, crossing his arms again before giving the generals a blank look. "I'm done," Is all he says as he looks at the two giving a clear indication he was not wanting to do the tour anymore. He looked past the generals to the path that led away from the gardens. He had stupidly put himself in a corner that's only other exit led to the servants quarters and as much as Nani wouldn't mind going there, he refused to show the two generals where it was should they decide they're bored or something.

"Step aside," He orders simply, giving no sway in his voice and keeping an air of confidence and authority.

"You are such a kiss ass. I hope you know that." Her eyes followed his, as he walked past and she merely smiled as she did seconds before. His words meant nothing to her, why? Well she did kill people for fun, so how does it make sense if she got offended with childish remarks such as his. With a light giggle, she quickly followed the two, while glancing at the water bender who decided to stay behind. 'hm~?'
That girl might be of some use later. And it seems Qannik had the same idea. "What about that cute water tribe servent from the throne room? What's she up to? I do like a little tail from the poles." 'Way to push his buttons.' Eris thought musingly, keeping her eyes onto the Prince's reaction. It was obvious of his feelings, and she would love to see his range of control- perhaps he'll snap~? But much to her disappointment, his servant was there to check his temper and he immeditaly seemed to calm down. "How boring." she slurred in a low whisper, watching him walking away, with a laugh inducing "pride."
"Step aside?" She repeated, her smile becoming more and more chesire like, "But..." Her fingers twitched, and within seconds, the water bender stepped into the room, her eyes filled with frustration and anger. "your little water bender just decided to join the party, it would be a shame for you to leave." Avaria stepped toward them, while doing so, her reluctancy was evident as her steps were rigid and slow- she was fighting hard. "Perhaps we will have our fun with her? Its boring by ourselves..~" Eris's lips licked her lips, while her eyes searched for something that reflected anger, frustration, and even better, helplessness...
But it was seconds later when she swiped her hand, releasing the bender from her grasp, 'I can't get him too riled up.. not yet at least.' They had so much more in stock, so for now, she'll let him have his moment of peace...~
"heh~ just kidding."




Avaria watched the group leave, curious if she should follow, but decided not to since she didnt want to be a burden to Nani... She already was a few moments ago, and she didnt want to make the same mistake.
So slowly standing up from her seat in the front, she made her way towards the servant quarters, only to freeze.
'huh..' Her eyes widended. 'I... cant..?' Her muscles were taut, as if she was made out of wood until suddenly, she began to quickly walk towards the groups direction- the garden.
It only took a few seconds for Avaria to figure out what was happening, and the blue haired general did not leave her mind. Her lips tightened, 'Hope Nani is alright.'
She didnt want him to blow a fuse. Not because of her. It was when she arrived that she relaxed, Nani seemed... calm enough, or at least, enough not to snap upon the generals.. And speaking of generals..
"your little water bender just decided to join the party, it would be a shame for you to leave." She unconsciously glared, while rigidly walking towards their sides..
She could barely keep her control up, and she was lucky that she wasnt loosing it.
This women... truly wasn't all bark.. "heh~ just kidding." Feeling her body return to her, Avaria quickly found herself at Nani's side, both tense and comforted by his mere presence.
"Nani..."

Nani kept his eyes fixed on a certain point in the distance. He couldn’t look at them. He had to get his uniform off and wander around the town or something. Anything to get out of the tension filled palace. He wanted to run between the two but if he did, they’d have a reason to fight him and he was not able to fight either general without using bending and that was out of the question entirely.

He heard her complain of how boring the situation just became and breathed deeply to keep from looking at her. Nani caught the twitch of her fingers barely and knew something’s wrong. He looked to her eyes just as Avaria walked in. His stomach dropped. Uruki had been right.

”Let her go,” Nani breathed as he looked to Avaria with apology and nervousness. Eris was known for her sadistic nature. She would enjoy hurting Avaria probably. Was probably savoring Nani’s fear for her.

Eris called Avaria a water bender and Nani felt the air leave his lungs. Did she really know? How could she tell? If she could, did she know of Nani too? He looked to her, his face one of concern, silently asking her if something had happened.

Avaria was struggling but Eris’s control was incredible. Nani moved towards Avaria, not sure what he could do but feeling like if he was next to her, she’d be alright somehow. Nani wanted to shout, wanted to lose his temper again at Eris’s words, but he focused on Avaria’s eyes and managed to keep it within, his concern for her more than his anger at Eris. ”Please let her go,” He whispers as he looks at Avaria.

Eric released Avaria a moment or so later and Nani heard her just kidding. That means she doesn’t know Avaria truly is a bender. She was only teasing him to rile him up. He hated her more so than ever before now. Avaria came closer when she was released and Nani took her hand before giving Eris and Qannik a look of hate and leaving with Avaria.

He pulled her along, not letting her go as they walked quickly away from those that wanted to hurt him and her. ”I’m sorry. It’s all my fault. If I hadn’t tried to keep you as far from my father as possible they wouldn’t have taken such an interest in you,” Nani apologizes as he walks through the servants quarters to the back door. Many nodded or greeted him and he waved back but wasn’t saying much in his guilt and frustration. He rips off his armor top, tossing it on Uruki’s bed as he passes it. He hated to burden his friend but the thing was stifling.

Nani pauses, looking at Avaria. ”Listen, tonight… I think I need to go to the tournament to see if I can get anything. We need to get you a place to stay somewhere in the city until they leave,”
Nani suggests very quietly, taking her other hand in his as he hopes she will allow him to do it. He wasn’t sure she would do it, but by asking at least he would feel better. He told her of the tournament that night in case she wanted to go with him though she knew he didn’t like when she came since he couldn’t keep an eye on her.

”I’m sorry… You know they rile me up and I act like this when generals are here,” Nani explains softly, guilty by his actions. He hated acting so jumpy. He took a breath and tried to relax but it was clear he was still struggling to regain all of his control. He looked to Avaria for help or advice, needing her anchor more than ever.
