A new saga begins

United Republic kept the balance between the four nations for over a hundred years. This fifth nation provided a place for those of all four nations to live together in harmony.

Eleven years ago, Republic City burned.

More than two-thirds of the city's population perished in the inferno that was said to be caused by the young Avatar. With the Council dead in the blaze, the Order of the White Lotus took command of the city and sentenced the Avatar to life in prison. They told everyone that peace was restored.

But we know better.

My father has a plan for the world, and it seems he will stop at nothing to get to the Avatar...
