The Elusive Airbenders of Ba Sing Se

You won’t believe what happened to me today! I had the honor of meeting the Avatar in person. Yes, THE Avatar! But let me tell you, it wasn’t a pleasant encounter. It seems the Earth Kingdom has some deep-rooted issues, and I got caught in the middle of it.

An Unsettling Past

The Earth Kingdom’s current ruler, Queen Hou-Ting, had no interest in helping the Avatar. And, to be fair, she had some valid reasons. The previous Avatar and Fire Lord Zuko had taken advantage of her father’s weakness, claiming Earth Kingdom lands for their own.

Kingdom in Disarray

Under Queen Hou-Ting’s reign, the Earth Kingdom was falling into ruin. Barbarians were terrorizing villages, and citizens were refusing to pay taxes. It was clear that something needed to be done.

A Royal Request

The Avatar and her companions sought the help of Queen Hou-Ting to locate new airbenders in Ba Sing Se. But before she would even consider their request, the Queen had a favor to ask. Her tax money, constantly being stolen by barbarians, needed to be recovered.

A Dangerous Mission

The Avatar and her team ventured south to retrieve the stolen tax money. It was a risky endeavor, but they were determined to fulfill their mission. Along the way, they encountered a group of fierce bandits, but the Avatar’s spirit and determination prevailed.

The Queen’s Deception

Returning to Ba Sing Se, the Avatar expected the Queen to honor her end of the bargain. But alas, the Queen claimed that there were no airbenders in the city, despite reports suggesting otherwise. It became clear that the Queen had used the Avatar to do her dirty work and had no intention of helping them.

The Battle Continues

Refusing to accept defeat, the Avatar made it known that they wouldn’t leave until they found the airbenders. This infuriated the Queen, leading to the Avatar being forcefully removed from the Queen’s presence. But the Avatar was determined to find the truth and locate the elusive airbenders within Ba Sing Se.


Isn’t it frustrating when those in power manipulate situations to suit their own agendas? It’s essential to remember that even the mightiest rulers can have their faults. The Avatar’s journey continues, as they face challenges head-on and search for the truth.
