Chapter One: Backstory[]

The backstory is a short excerpt that describes the changes that occurred in the Avatar World following the end of the Hundred Year War. Avatar Aang and Fire Lord Zuko worked together to restore peace and balance among the four nations by forming the United Republic of Nations, a fifth nation created from the Fire Nation colonies where benders and nonbenders from all walks of life could live together harmoniously. The capital, Republic City, is a site of exponential technological advancement.

It is also revealed that Aang and Katara married and eventually had three children: Kya, Bumi, and Tenzin. Aang trained Tenzin in the art of airbending and passed down to him the teachings of the Air Nomads. The two restored the four air temples and established Air Temple Island in Republic City, where the nonbending Air Acolytes settled and lived according to Air Nomad culture.

To safeguard his next incarnation, Aang enlisted the help of the Order of the White Lotus. He died at the age of 66, and was reincarnated into the Southern Water Tribe as Korra.

Chapter Two: Chapter guide[]

The chapter guide features a brief synopsis for each episode of the first book, along with initial frame sketches and final screen captures for particular scenes. Each episode also provides a preliminary animatic, a sequence created from a series of still images edited together and displayed with initial dialogue and music.
