Jianzhu was an Earth Kingdom sage, earthbending master, and one of the world's leading politicians during the late 4th and early 3rd century BG. At the peak of his power, he was the de facto ruler of most of the Earth Kingdom, though his power was constantly challenged by political rivals.

Having been Avatar Kuruk's close friend and later earthbending teacher, Jianzhu felt responsible for his friend's premature death due to his lack of guidance. In addition, the search for Kuruk's successor proved futile for several years, while the world increasingly descended into chaos. Fueled by guilt and a desire to restore what he regarded as balance, Jianzhu stepped in and assumed many traditional duties of the Avatar. With the aid of his old friend Kelsang, he forged a large network of allies and destroyed many rebel and bandit groups that had grown in power. Over time, his methods to maintain balance became more and more extreme to the point where he was willing to sacrifice anyone to achieve his goals. Eventually, Jianzhu identified a boy named Yun as Avatar and began to rigorously train him.

This endeavor proved futile, however, as Yun was eventually proven to be a regular earthbender, whereas a servant girl named Kyoshi was the true Avatar. In a desperate attempt to gain control of Kyoshi and train her to become the perfect Avatar, Jianzhu sacrificed his pupil Yun and murdered his friend Kelsang. When she escaped, Jianzhu mobilized all his resources to hunt her down. In the process, he murdered both a large number of leading Earth Kingdom sages as well as Kyoshi's friend Lek. Jianzhu finally met his end when he confronted and dueled Kyoshi, but was interrupted and killed by a returned Yun.

Editing Avatar Wiki

Want to help out?

The Avatar Wiki is never complete and could always still be improved upon. Unsure where and how to start? Don't hesitate to ask your fellow editor or an administrator or check out the community to-do list:
  • Category:Needs help — generally, the pages listed in this category are pages that could do with a massive rewrite to be in line with this wiki's Manual of Style.
  • Category:Under construction — this is a collection of pages that still await completion. There is still information missing, so feel free to elaborate and finish the page to make sure that all the details are accounted for.
  • Category:Articles with unsourced information — pages in this category are lacking proper citations to be in line with our verifiability policy, so please add any and all reliable, published sources to help remedy that situation.
  • Transcript pages — several episode and comic transcripts could do with additional scene description, and some comics don't even have a transcript yet.
  • Kyoshi novels — Creation of chapter pages of the novels and the updating/creation of pages for people, locations, creatures, and events that are dealt with in the novels.

Before starting to edit, make sure to give our Avatar Wiki:Manual of Style and our Avatar Wiki:S.O.S. editing guide a lookover.
