King Bumis Heir


Avatar: The Legendary Ku Tei


Set six hundred fifty years before Aang's awakening. The Earth Kingdom's Avatar Ku Tei's time has passed. There was an era of both war and peace during Ku Tei's time. The cycle continues on, and the Avatar Spirit reincarnates into a child within the Fire Nation.

The new Avatar Avatar Rong Yan, the Fire Nation Avatar prior Avatar Roku learns of his status at the age of sixteen, and starts his Avatar journey to master the other three elements in order Air, Water, and Earth.

Somewhere within the Earth Kingdom a former general of the Earth Kingdom military who betrayed his nation had escaped prison within the walls of Ba Sing Se, the media of the city believes that the general while spending his years in prison mastered a sub type of earthbending rumored to be rare and extremely unique called metalbending.

Rong Yan later learns that an escaped prisoner from Ba Sing Se has a personal vendetta on him and that he wants to eliminate him. The young Avatar has no idea why this man wants him dead, but later word gets out to the Avatar, about what his past life had done to the general.

The former general learns that the Avatar is looking for him as well, going in two completely different ways, at times they will encounter each other and sometimes not, but at their final confrontation will the Avatar have mustered all the power needed to defeat General Senlin, or will he perish and not fulfill what Avatar Ku Tei could not do?
