Who is The Avatar (Avatar Icon)
Avatar, the Last Airbender series was the birth of a fantastic franchise. It has gathered fans all over the world since its debut and has continued to create memories for children, adults, and young adults all over the world. When Netflix announced the live-action series that was to come, fans were more than excited.
The Avatar is a reincarnation of the Light spirit Raava, fusing with a human being named Wan. He became the first Avatar. He, through resilience and determination, was able to do what no one else had done or thought about doing before in all of history. His uncommon thinking led him to become the first Avatar. Avatars are reincarnations of that first life Wan lived. They act as mediators and bridges between the spirit and the physical world.
Wan was the first Avatar, and he lived about ten thousand years before Aang and Avatar Korra. He was banished from his home and sent into the then forbidden forest. The forest was inhabited by spirits, and at that time, the balance was very shaky, and relations between humans and spirits were not at their best. He eventually learned to coexist with the spirits. He made it his life’s mission to help bring balance between them and the rest of mankind. This eventually led to him becoming the first Avatar.
He met Raava for the first time and made the mistake of freeing Vaatu from her hold.
After seeing his mistake, he helps her fight off the dark spirits; Wan decides to help Raava further by fighting Vaatu. To do this, he asks the air lion turtle for its power. No human had ever held two elements before, but Wan insists that he is unlike any other human and says he can do it.
The lion turtle decided to give him the power of the Air; however, Raava would have to hold the power for him until he mastered it.
Raava gave the element of Air to Wan by passing through his body and combining their energies. Although a dangerous undertaking, Wan survived the ordeal, and the small yet unlikely alliance set out to find the water and earth lion turtles to receive the last two elements.
Wan and Raava work together to master all four elements, and thus, the Avatar was born.
The Avatar has the power to master all four bending disciplines and become the most powerful being in the universe. The Avatar uses his or her power to keep balance in the four nations.
The Avatar icon is a representation of all four elements and all four nations. As the Avatar, the master of all the four elements, he or she must wield it with great responsibility. They must learn the disciplines of all four, balancing it within themselves in harmony. It is only the Avatar that can do this. The designs on the Avatar icon are four in number. They represent all four elements starting with Earth, Water, Fire, and Air.
Earth Kingdom (Earth)
People of the Earth Kingdom are gifted with the ability to control this element. The element Earth. As General Iroh told Zuko. The people of the Earth Kingdom are diverse and strong. They are both persistent and enduring.
The Earth kingdom is one of the four nations in the Avatar World.
The kingdom spans an entire continent as well as several subsidiary islands. It is also known as the largest and most populated sovereignty in the world and encompasses much of the eastern hemisphere. The Earth kingdom operates as a monarchy under the rule of a king or queen, although the 54th Earth King, Wu of the Hou-Ting dynasty, announced his intention in 174 AG to abdicate the throne in favor of splitting the nation into independent states with democratically elected leaders, akin to the political system used in the United Republic of Nations. This was an action that was necessary for peace as he grew to understand that the people were strong and didn’t need the monarchy to oversee their affairs.
They also adhere to a philosophy of peaceful coexistence and cooperation with the other nations of the world. Earthbenders use their abilities for defense and industry, as seen in Avatar Korra’s Legend. They also fiercely defended their cities against Fire Nation attacks during the Hundred Year War. The Earth kingdom also has a large economy based on agriculture and limited industry, though it is not as economically powerful as the Fire Nation, which benefits from advanced technology.
One of the first Earth Benders were two lovers named Oma and Shu, who learned directly from the Badgers. Oma used it to stop a war between both villages. She created a new city and named it after both of them, Omashu.
Water Tribe/Nation (Water)
The water tribe is divided into the South Pole (Southern water tribe), the North Pole, and Foggy Swamp. As Iroh told Zuko while trying to teach him a new element; The people of the water tribe are capable of adapting to many things. They have a deep sense of community and love that holds them together through anything.
Water tribe is one of the four nations and one of the people with a bending discipline. The water tribe people have the ability to control water.
Water Tribe is also a collective term for the nation of people who practice the art of waterbending.
There is also a small community of water benders that populate the swamp. The people of the Water Tribes are referred to as “Water Tribesmen.”
Fire Nation (Fire)
The Fire Nation is one of the world’s four nations and five sovereign states. It is an absolute monarchy that is led by the Fire Lord. It is home to most fire benders. These are people with the ability to create and manipulate the element fire. Geographically, the nation is located along the planet’s equator in the western hemisphere and is composed of several islands, named the Fire Islands.
As General Iroh said to Zuko when discussing the nature of the fire nation. The people of the fire nation have the desire and will and the energy, and drive to achieve what they want.
The people of the Fire Nation are referred to as “Fire Nationals.”
The Fire Nation is the second-largest nation in terms of area, following the Earth Kingdom, while its economy is the most powerful in the world.
Air Nomads (Air)
The air Nomads of the air nation are one of the four great nations, as Iroh said to Zuko on the nature of the Air Nomads. He said they detached themselves from worldly concerns and found peace and freedom. Air Nomads is a collective term for a group of people who have detached themselves from worldly concerns. They are a monastic order who practice the bending discipline of Air.
The Avatar Icon has these four bending nations present on it. It is a depiction of how the Avatar is the unity of all four nations.
