H E I G H T || W E I G H T
137 lbs. || Nani is barely underweight and only because he is often giving his food away, hating that his father is so cruel and terrible as to refuse people food.
6'1" || Nani is 6'1" and fits his frame for the most part.


H A I R C O L O U R
Dark, strawberry red with blonde tips.

E Y E C O L O U R
Emerald Green

S K I N T O N E
Tanned

B L E S S E D S Y M B O L
Chest || Nani's blessed symbol is on the right side of his chest two inches down and in between his collarbone and shoulder. Few people have seen his blessed symbol since he covers it up, unsure what it is but knowing his father would not approve of it.

G E N E R A L__A P P E A R A N C E
Nani is athletic and lean with tanned skin and light definition on his muscles. He is muscular because of his fighting to make money to spend on those mistreated in his kingdom. Often times he has bruises or cuts littering his body from the fights though he is often times covering them up as much as he can. People can tell how badly he is hurt by how much clothing he wears though only those that know he fights know how to look for that. Nani is tall but doesn't tower and has already filled his frame though he is still growing a little bit. Nani also has scar tissue on his left calf, wrapping all around it from an old burn his father had inflicted on him. Nani has many nicks and scars all over his body from his father and his fights. There is also a burn wrapping around his side though it is not as large as the one on his leg. Nani's hair is short, maybe two or three inches long at it's longest point.

P E R S O N A L I T Y
Calm || Adventurous || Loving || Passionate || Loyal
Nani is a caring person overall. He will protect people without hesitation though this can also cause him to be reckless. He's gotten into a number of scrapes where he was outnumbered and beaten badly after trying to help people. He hates when children are looked down on and includes everybody in entertaining events.

Nani is not really a shy person though he gets really nervous around girls and won't go talk to them if he can help it. Nani is a calm person except when he's angered in which case he is very irrational and will not listen to people unless they can appeal to one of his ways of reason. Nani is very intelligent though he doesn't show it for he doesn't care about it.

Nani is definitely one for action and is always looking for something to do to satisfy his impatient nature. Nani loves the thrill of competing and fighting even if he looses, he will be there the next day, week, or month depending on the beating he received in the ring. Nani does not back down at all and will do some pretty stupid things before he would consider backing down to anything.

Nani is loving and cares for all people. He hates seeing people upset and hates seeing people crying even more. Whenever he sees someone crying, Nani is there and he's gonna make sure whatever hurt the person is gone. He is also passionate about things. He is passionate in his actions and beliefs and has no qualms in hiding his passion. Once he sets his mind to something or finds he cares for something, he doesn't do it half heartedly, but with all of his heart and mind.

Nani is loyal to a fault and would never betray anyone for any reason. He is often considered stupid for this though in reality he only sees it as a virtue that he prefers to nurture. Nani would never betray anyone unless it was planned (such as being a spy), though he would never betray someone for any other reason. He is more inclined to be killed before talking being as stubborn and hard headed as he is.

Nani is nothing like how he looks. His chin is held high and he has no problem speaking his mind, but he was born to be a leader and people often imagine him to be like his father or as him believing he is superior. The girl Nani loves lives in poverty and horrible conditions, so he knows what it is like and tries to be the opposite of what people believe him to be. Nani is a proud fellow who won't kick a man when they're down, but knows when to surrender to keep from adding more violence to a situation.

B I R T H P L A C E
Fire Nation Palace

H I S T O R Y
Nani was born and raised in the fire nation capital for most of his life. He has always had an easy life, getting whatever he wanted whenever he wanted it. The only issue was that he was never as accepted by his family as most children are. Similar to his ancestor Zuko, who assisted the Avatar to defeat another ancestor, Nani wasn't his fathers favorite even though he was the only child. Nani's cousin lived in the palace and was far better than Nani at any and all political things. Nani could keep up, but he was a lot more willing to give people second chances instead of acting immediately.

Nani couldn't stand his father because of the fact that he never listened and seemed more inclined to raise his hand before he would raise his voice at Nani. Nani's cousin was very abusive and with the assistance of friends, cornered Nani more than once. Nani would fight back, but would not use his bending against his family not knowing he had it. Nani didn't tell his father for fear of his father would call him a liar and punish him, that and his father was likely not to care.

Nani discovered his firebending when he was eight and was out in the town by himself looking for someone his father had been planning on arresting for no reason. Nani was taken in for the night where the kind soul revealed that they were a master at fire bending. Nani began going to the man whenever he could and training often so he could be good at his bending though he was already a few years behind other benders his age. He feared his father would turn him in if he revealed that he was a bender so he hid it and his lessons from his father.When Nani turned thirteen, his mother died leaving him without a relative who cared. The master took care of him even though he too was becoming sick. Nani was devastated when his master was killed by his father upon Nani's father discovering Nani's outings. Nani was furious and refused to go near the palace for nearly half a year before he was forced to go back by a bedridden friend. Upon returning, Nani was beaten by his father and told he could not leave the palace without strict surveillance though no guards in the palace follow the rule as they know Nani is only helping the families in the towns when he goes out, some of their families being out in the towns too and knowing what it was like under the cruel fire lord's reign.

Nani discovered that his cousin had been poisoning his friend in hopes to hurt Nani in a cruel way. When Nani discovered this, he immediately attacked his cousin. The two were in the forest at the time and Nani accidentally killed his cousin in his anger and sorrow, using his bending in a way his cousin could come nowhere close to in skill or power.

Nani avoided all the Faceless Ones' activities as much as possible. He would skip lessons on purpose for shadow and ash bending. He was deemed "hopeless" and "weak" so his teacher and everyone else gave up on him. His father then decided that he would need a different heir and began searching silently and little to Nani's knowledge, began closely looking at Nani's other cousin.

Nani met the blessed waterbender when she appeared as a slave in the palace being a bender and all. Nani immediately was attracted to her because of their intertwined destinies but didn't know why. The two began seeing each other as they discovered feelings deeper than just the friendship they had around the age of sixteen. Nani began trying to keep her away from his father since his father was the one she was assigned to take care of. Nani's father asks for the blessed waterbender because he knows his son wants to keep the man away from her.

Nani is known in the castle to take beatings and punishments for servants and slaves. People don't neglect this opportunity but once as they see how it affects Nani and other staff shun the individual who caused the loving prince to be hurt. Nani hates seeing others hurt and therefore takes it upon himself to take it instead so he keeps others from feeling pain he knows he can take. He understands that their lives are not very good and prefers to keep it as hurt and sorrow free as he can.

Nani prays for the avatar to come soon and help the world so the horrors he sees begin to disappear.




"I like what I like and hate what I hate but things can always change and I am not that stubborn."

Q U I R K S
Water || Nani loves water, but hates swimming. He refuses to swim if he can help it, but loves sitting in water or putting his feet in or just getting wet then getting out. He avoids swimming as much as he can.
Ambidextrous || Nani is left handed though because that is looked down upon, he trains with his right when he is forced to train causing him to be ambidextrous.
Lack of Punctuality || Nani is very bad about being on time. He's late for nearly everything he is needed for and can't help it. He's left early but is always caught up somehow and then he's nearly a half hour late. His servants have taken to telling him that something is at an earlier time to lessen the chance of him being late, yet he still is somehow.
Fights || Nani is really bad about getting into a fight that he can't win. He's always wanting to hop in and has found reasons that aren't even there just so he can say he had an excuse. Nani will fight with everyone and anyone he thinks deserves it or is willing (but only willing when in the ring for a competition to win money).


S K I L L S
Fire Bending || Nani is a blessed fire bender and though he is not as skilled as many benders at his age are since he has to hide his abilities, he is more powerful because of the symbol on his chest. Nani practices his bending whenever he can spare time or has a chance to while being safe about it.
Hand to Hand Combat || Because Nani is always fighting, he has picked up hand to hand combat. It helps him with his father too so he can defend himself better though he has never thrown a punch at his father in fear of it resulting with his father taking anger out on servants or those who don't deserve it.
Studying || Nani is very intelligent and could be a scholar if he was in a different life. Nani actually wishes he could be a scholar but would not take the job if it was offered to him just so he could stay with the ones he loves but is having trouble protecting.

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.



Image



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.

Nani climbed into his window just as his servants entered to help him dress for the welcoming ceremony. Nani had already been up for two hours, running around the city in his best friend's street clothing from when he first arrived at the palace. The servants looked up as they saw Nani freeze in the window, then ducked their heads until Nani jumped into his room and closed the windows.

"Already?" He asked his best friend as he moved to grab Nani's formal dress. It consisted of a loose maroon pair of pants. The top was more skin tight though of the same color and unfortunately long sleeved though the fabric did allow Nani to breath. He had to wear an armor like thing on his shoulders and elbows. His shoes were pointy and had a gold stripe. He hated the entire getup as even though it was made to be cool in the fire nation's heat, it was still stifling.

Nani's friend, Uruki scoffed as he tossed Nani his pants. Nani, being not modest whatsoever, groaned as he stipped of his tunic and tossed it on the floor where his other servant, Chiriko, moved to pick it up. "Chirko, I'll get it later," Nani stated as he waved the small boy away though the boy only shrugged as he picked it up and waited for Nani to pass him the sweaty pants he had on, less caring than Nani himself was. Nani, not entirely sure how he felt about it, moved to change his pants behind the rice paper screen in the corner of his room.

Upon emerging, he caught the shirt Uruki tossed at him and slipped it on, pulling it down and tucking it into his pants, then beginning to lace the top of it. Nani was then passed his belt sash which he wrapped around his waste and let Uruki tie as he accepted the things that went on his elbows by Chiriko. He was a fellow who didn't talk. It wasn't because he was dim like most people thought, but rather, Chiriko's voice had been damaged in a fire.

Nani thanked him, then turned when Uruki tapped his shoulder. Nani accepted the piece of armor that went on his shoulders and gave Uruki a slight smile. Uruki just gave him a pointed look and Nani raised his eyebrows. "What?" Nani asked as he felt Chiriko begin to tie the laces for the armor in the back.

Uruki shook his head slightly, "Don't be stupid today Nani. These are generals. This isn't your father. They have no reason to keep you alive if you don't hold your tongue. You can only take so much. And what was that letter I got? You asked Daichi to let Karou stand near you? Are you crazy? It's only going to draw attention to her!"

Nani ducked his head. He knew what Uruki was saying was correct, he just didn't want to admit it. "What was I supposed to do? If she wasn't near me and they picked her out because she looks slightly stronger or accidentally tries to make eye contact with me? At least this way she isn't alone," Nani whispered viciously.

Uruki sighed but put a hand on his friend's shoulder. "I know you mean well, but if you aren't careful, it won't matter. Nani, you aren't your grandfather. Don't think you are," Uruki said kindly as he moved to grab the gold fire thing that went in Nani's hair.

Nani moved to sit on the chair in the corner and pull on the obnoxious shoes before turning himself and the chair to give Uruki access to his hair. Nani liked his hair. It was something that reminded him of his mother. It was why he kept it longer than a lot of boys his age did. Nani allowed Uruki to pull his hair up and away from his face before slipping the gold fire piece in his hair.

Nani stood, thanking both Chiriko and Uruki before moving to leave though both blocked his way. "What? Is there more? Did I forget something?" Nani asked as he looked down at himself yet didn't see anything he could have missed. Uruki and Chiriko both shook their heads no before looking at each other and smiling slightly.

"We've actually been instructed by people who care about you to make sure you don't get side tracked," Uruki admitted. Chiriko just nodded. Nani pouted like a child before pointing at Uruki. "You care about me?" Nani asked in an annoyingly cute tone as he moved to hug his friend. Uruki made a face as he let Nani hug him though he only patted his friend on the back.

"Yeah, yeah, more like we know you and you're always late and you can't be late to this. Your father wouldn't be happy with us," Uruki admitted with a sigh though he did smile, however, he didn't let Nani see it. As Nani let him go, Uruki's face resumed his annoyed glare. Nani smiled at him before thanking both Uruki and Chiriko as he let them lead him towards the throne room that was where the welcoming ceremony was going to be.

Nani was nervous as he entered the room. Many if not all the servants were already in place. Uruki and Chiriko both split off from Nani as they moved to take their places while Nani approached his seat which was inevitably going to lead him to have to either converse with his father or awkwardly not look at him. Nani looked for Karou instead, hoping to see her and have her boost his spirits before he had to encounter his father.

Nani discovered himself to be standing in the center of the room where some important figures were still milling about. Nani looked for Karou while hoping he seemed like he was just trying to avoid sitting down for a bit. It was known he didn't like sitting, but moving and doing things. He was slightly worried for so many reasons. So many people in that room liked him while so many others couldn't wait for the day where he was finally deemed intolerable. Nani knew if people knew about the symbol he and Karou shared and his fire bending... It was a very good chance they wouldn't hear much else about Nani again.

As written by Foreman Daichi Akira to Prince Aonani
hesfweglloPrince Aonani, this is in regards to Karou Akise. I have received your letter and regret to inform you that though I can meet most of your requests, I can not keep Akise from having to wear the formal slave attire. I have been given permission to allow her to sit near you during the ceremony though she cannot sit on the dais. She has been given permission to stand behind you on the lower dais, slightly to your right.

hesfweglloI apologize I could not do more for you your highness, but your father's assistant and the fire nation general in charge of the welcoming ceremony have kept me from giving you your other requests. Have a good day and my apologies.

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.

Nani sighed as he looked around. The other servants were polite as they pretended not to notice their presence. Most servants knew of the relationship, but pretended they didn't see it as it only brought more attention where Nani didn't want attention. He just didn't want attention from certain people such as his father since he never gave good attention whatsoever, regardless of what he had heard.

Nani watched her face as he waited for her response. He couldn't read her expression though and he looked down at where he held her hands, rubbing his thumb over her knuckles. He wanted to pull her in and go to Uruki's bed and just take a nap. It sounded amazing. They wouldn't, they couldn't, but he wanted to desperately to attempt to relax and find peace. But it wasn't the time. Or the place.

She was surprised when he told her of the tournament that night. He leaned in just so he would be closer to her but didn't get too close. He had so much to be concerned about. His last tournament had gone somewhat well. His opponent got mad and when Nani's back was turned, he got burned badly. It had hurt, but it hadn't been unbearable.

Dani looked at Avaria as she spoke, giving her a small smile. "Don't say that... I mean... You now I can only do so much Avaria. You know I would never let anyone hurt you... And," Nani stopped when Avaria smiled and he lost his train of thought and any words that might have come to mind at all. He looks down, blinking to try and regain his thought and self.

She spoke and he was nodding, not looking up as he just agreed, thankful to hear the words. He didn't even realize she was kissing him until she was there. His breath caught and he kissed back, then all of a sudden she was gone and he wanted her closer again but she wasn't there. "It's not you who I fear isn't strong, Avaria.. But come with me tonight and you can stand with Uruki maybe," Nani decided confidently though he didn't feel it entirely. If they were caught, they'd be taken prisoner and probably executed in public. Nani was not going to allow that to happen though no matter what.

Nani took a breath. He hated when he wasn't as confident as he pretended to be. He took another breath before giving Avaria a hug. One that told her all that she meant to him and what she did for him. He let her go before looking down at her. "Meet me tonight out at the outer garden's wall. I'll see you then," He stated with a smile before walking away, looking back as long as he could before he turned the corner. He leaned against the wall and ran a hand through his hair. If he wasn't careful, everything that he cared about would disappear.

Nani moved quickly. He wore a pair of pants Uruki let him borrow along with a vest under a dark cloak. His boots made little sound as he walked down the hall with the hood off but the cloak closed. If guards saw him as he was, they wouldn't think anything of it, but if they saw what he wore beneath, they might grow suspicious and his father was anything but forgiving for suspicious actions.

One guard saw him and gave a nod before moving on. Nani walked quickly before making it outside. He went without light for if he was seen bending a small flame to see, he could get caught. He moved to stand under the tree he and Avaria had met under multiple times. He pulled up his hood, leaning against the wall to blend into the shadows as he waited for her, more like anticipated her arrival.
