Aang: Story of an Airbender is a background story fanon by RuleroftheBisons97. Fourteen chapters were released until it was discontinued due to technical complications. It was "rebooted" a year later due to the author's growth in writing and the fanon's praise. The prologue was released on February 21, 2014 to honor the nine year anniversary of Avatar: The Last Airbender.
Everyone knows the legend of Avatar Aang. The defeat of Ozai, the creation of Republic City, and the start of a new era all transpired within his lifetime. However, no one knows the true story of the Airbender before his awakening in the South Pole.
As a young Air Nomad, Aang finds himself thrust into a world full of dangerous friendship, unbearable heartache, and stunning betrayals at every turn as his destiny as the Avatar further enters the light.
Aang struggles to comprehend the real and terrifying nature of the outside world compared to the secure and protective nature of the Southern Air Temple, coming face to face with death, anger, and sadness on his quest to unravel the mysteries surrounding the missing Airbenders and sets off on a journey to find them. Along the way, he helps his friends Bumi, Kuzon, Akua, and Kelron cope with their own life lessons.
Despite the danger, everyone is blind to the horrifying and dangerous secrets that lay hidden in the temple walls which threaten to destroy everyone should they choose to surface. Now, with his best friend, Mia, Aang attempts to uncover the truths while facing against his friend turned rival, Aka, who wants to be the Avatar. With adventure located from the South Sea to the Northern Air Temple, join Aang and his friends as they slowly start to unwrap the mysteries awaiting them.
Friend or foe, all are oblivious to the true monster that roams the temple's walls and the horror that awaits them all.
