Yaoping Town was a town located in the Earth Kingdom.[1]

History[]

Yangchen airbending

Yangchen regularly practiced her airbending in a meadow near Yaoping.

Avatar Yangchen liked to use the Avatar State to practice her airbending in a meadow near Yaoping.[2] She also made a deal with a local spirit, the Heartwalker of Yaoping Mountain. The spirit would leave the physical world and, in return, the humans would respect their environment.[3]

However, the humans reneged on this promise. The Heartwalker turned dark by the life of Avatar Kuruk, and planned to enter the physical world through the cracks between the realms created by Father Glowworm.[1]

Avatar Kuruk arrived in Yaoping with Kelsang, Jianzhu, and Hei-Ran, where he entered the Spirit World for the first time. While there, he realized the malevolent intentions of the Heartwalker. Returning to the physical world, he took Kelsang's glider and flew to the mountain, where he battled the dark spirit.

Kuruk's friends found him later, crawling through the streets of Yaoping frothing at the mouth. He was taken to the town's inn, but the local doctor determined there was nothing wrong with his body. Sinking into a depression as a result of his battle with the spirit, Kuruk begin to heavily drink alcohol and slept with the inn's maid. Although Kelsang did not judge and Jianzhu did not care, Hei-Ran lost a lot of respect for Kuruk due to the events in Yaoping.[1]

Trivia[]

  • The entrance to the salt mines in a neighboring mountain to Yaoping is the only place where someone can see the town from above.[1]
