Avatar: A New Beginning Thirty-two years after the time of Avatar Aang's demise, the new Avatar is lost. Upon the previous Avatar's request, he has asked that no one should try and seek out the new Avatar for the Avatar's safety. The world is in a state of peace well-earned and long-awaited, and the monks of the Air Temples await Aang's successor. Recently, there were rumors that the new Avatar had finally revealed themselves, but these merely proved themselves to be as they are - rumors. The Air Nomads have survived in a twist of fate that no one had thought they could have managed, and the element of Air lives on not only in Aang and Katara's children, but the new generation as well. Now discontent is rising and rumors are stirring once again. The world is holding its breath for another storm that might come upon them, and the lives of certain people are in for a change. The world slowly tips on its already slightly tilted axis. Cast, cyan Uomi (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Uomi (open) Uomi (close) Name: Uomi (Hanako-chan) Gender: Female Age: 17 Appearance: Long black hair reaching past her waist tied mid-back, with straight bangs cut across the forehead and her sidebangs adorned with the hair loopies, but not left hanging to her shoulders, it's tied back with the rest of her hair from under her ears. Uomi has light brown skin, and wears a strip of white cloth covering her eyes. She has a jagged scar across her throat and reaching the edge of her jaw in which the skin is lighter, but her shirt, which is blue, high collared and long-sleeved, hides it. She also wears fit black pants cut off just below her knee, with bandages covering her calves and leather boots. Hidden beneath the bandage over her eyes is a straight scar across her eyes, and her blue eyes have a milky film across them due to blindness. Has a slender figure and stands at 5'5". Nation: Water Element: Water History: Uomi was the daughter of one of those few people who disliked the way things were coming together and didn't support the Avatar or peace at all even in this age. When she was seven there was an incident, or more precisely attack, that left her blind and almost bleeding to death due to the slashes on her throat, though who or what could have done it was unknown. Since she was so desperate to see again and despised her own blindness, her father saw this as an opportunity to make her try bloodbending, because Uomi was talented at waterbending and healing already. At first he gave her hints to try and 'see' using the water in the air, or mist, as something like a 'radar' or heat sensor, moving the water particles in the air to help her sense ahead, and then feeling the water in the plants and greenery. He slowly eased her into using the actual water in the blood of living things to sense people, and this led to Uomi playing with small animals as her 'dolls' or 'puppets' for practice, and though she dislikes the idea of it - she still uses it, though promising never to use it for malicious intent. She has great control over her waterbending because of her blindness and need to use it to sense others, as well as skill with bloodbending that she instinctually uses sometimes to avoid being hit - by forcing someone's arm to move wrong and the attack to miss, etc. She also learned the chi pathways throughout the body through touching and studying others, and can adeptly have a sense of 'sight' of one's network and use chi blocking. Personality: Uomi has a quiet and reserved personality, but generally warms up to others given enough time. Her hobby when she was a child and still had sight was reading and practicing her healing, but given that she's now blind she can't really read, but loves a good story. She's very talkative to people she knows and likes, and since she can't read generally asks them to tell her stories or read for her. She also has an interest in herbs and medicine, and aspires to create a system that can help blind people read through touch (like Braille in real life). Weapon(s): Chi blocking Other: Her voice is very, very soft and frail due to her throat injury. She has some difficulty speaking and it would damage her voice if she is forced to talk loudly. Anri (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Anri (open) Anri (close) Name: Anri (Hanako-chan) Gender: Female Age: 16 Appearance: Straight black hair cut straight across the forehead with side bangs reaching past her chin. However, the rest of her hair is oddly done - it's cut just past the chin at most parts, however her hair at the back of her head isn't cut as short, it reaches to her waist, giving the illusion that her hair is tied back. Pale skin, dark green eyes. Wears a green qipao with slits up the sides, but wears light yellow shorts underneath, and leather sandals. Her other accessory is the pale yellow sashes on her wrists. She's almost always smiling, but seemingly indifferent to the surroundings around her. Lean, seemingly thin and stands at 5'5". Nation: Earth Element: None History: The adopted daughter of someone prominent in the Earth Kingdom, though apparently she was thrown to the dogs because of an offense against her adopted father. Not much else is known about her background other than she knows more than she lets on, or has more skills than her simple chains. Personality: A casual slacker. She's more happy when she's asleep even though she likes staring at the clouds just as well, or playing pai sho to train her logic. Notices when odd or supposedly frightening things are happening, but just laughs and brushes it off, treating it as a game even if she's fighting - or so it seems. People either get the impression she's just playing around or indulging them, if they're smart enough to notice, but more often than not she tends to come off as 'blissfully ignorant', with a head-in-the-clouds kind of cheer or dull surprise. You don't want to see her when she's angry, though. The only hint that she's not the dullard she seems to be is her skill at pai sho. Weapon: Tends to gravitate to chain weapons. Usually has her Meteor Hammer (two spiked weights linked together by a long chain and usually hung at her waist) with her, though she's ended up using kusarigama (scythe on a chain) and nunchucks. Basically she's deadly with those types of weapons despite looking like she's about to fall asleep or smiling obliviously. Other: - It seems like she has no sense of direction. Regularly gets lost a lot around the Earth Kingdom that she just goes with the flow, taking whatever odd job she ends up getting in villages. Once she intended to go to Omashu but ended up close to the Northern Air Temple with no idea how she did it. Also a tea enthusiast. - An incredibly skilled liar. A conman or woman at their finest. Temujin Gohson (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Temujin Gohson (open) Temujin Gohson (close) Name: Temujin Gohson (Lithël Aelfwine) Gender: Male Age: 32 Appearance: About 7' 1'', muscled and bulky giant. Has long brown/red hair strapped always with a leather cord. Is physically strong, much more stronger than a normal man, although he's not clumsy. Has dark green eyes, and a little nose, his face ended up in a full beard that he cares greatly. Nation: Earth Element: Earth History: Son of Goh Shiruson, a proud and stubborn guard for the Omashu's lord and Kinana, a young and loving mother. He liked to walk around the mountains and camping since he was really young. In one of his camping trips he found a badger-mole and feed it, gaining her friend, Toph. Toph accompanied him all his childhood, learning a great deal of his earth bending from her. When he was 10, his mother got pregnant and had a little daughter, Sango. Her mother was weak at her birth so she died. For some time he felt it was Sango's fault, but as she grew up, he realized she was now the most important person in her life (something that, mostly, is still true). When he turned adult, his father taught him the means of fighting and Temujin started working with him as a guard. After some years a band of robbers attacked and almost killed his father. When that happened, Temujin lost control and killed a group of robbers, though many of them had surrendered. That made him become a fugitive and, after many deliverations, he was set free, but got exiled. After being exiled, temujin travelled around the world for over a year, but returned as a slave, only to be released after by Miroku, a friend of his from the Northern Water tribe. After returning, he started working as a blacksmith until he could open his own bussines. Personality: Takes great care of the ones he loves (namely: his family and friends). Most of the time, he acts as a gentleman, but once you get to know him he's happy and light headed. Usually walks out in little trips to visit friends or to "get inspiration and raw material" to the nearby river but never misses an oportunity to be outdoors. Weapon: A Hammer he calls Sakura and anything made of metal or earth. Other: - Considers himself and artist of the metal, and his masterwork confirms it (a Carborundrum -carbon almost turned into diamond- sword) - Married to a water tribe girl 8 years younger. - Lives with friends in the back of his smithy, although his wife hasn't been home for a while. Character list will be updated.
