Avatar: The Last Airbender

Child of Destiny is a fanfiction story depicting the future of the world ten years after the end of Sozin's War. The story revolves around Aang's search for Diyi, the first Airbending child to be born in over one hundred years, who has been kidnapped by an unknown party. It also chronicles Zuko's struggles against the Cult of Sozin, a group of Fire Nation rebels who still eagerly pursue the goal of Fire Nation supremacy and are led by Admiral Zhao, who was believed to be dead.


This story started out as a setting for an Avatar-based role-playing game MightyBrit ran for his friends. After the campaign was successful, as a quiet fan of several Avatar Fanons, he decided to write out the story for the Avatar Fanon wiki.

There will be thirty chapters in the story, consisting of three books of ten chapters. The first book - Fear - is now finished and is all available right here on Avatar Wiki. The second book - Anger - is currently halfway finished, and while it suffered had a long hiatus in the beginning of 2011, MightyBrit is currently releasing the chapters every two weeks.

Story Introduction

Ten years has passed since Avatar Aang ended Sozin's War and Prince Zuko claimed the throne of the Fire Nation. The small group of heroes who defeated Ozai and Azula have grown up and gone their separate ways. Compared to the times of war, there is peace in the world.

After ten long years of hard work, Aang has successfully revived the Air Nomads by bringing members of other cultures into his own. His belief that by restoring the spirituality of his people would return the gift of airbending to the world proved true and Diyi was born to a devout New Nomad couple. She is the first airbending infant in over a century.

Fire Lord Zuko faces the strife in his own kingdom. The Cult of Sozin is terrorizing his people and his lands and there is little he can do to stop it. The terror they cause is only increased by the rumors that the Cult is being led by the late Admiral Zhao, who has apparently discovered a way to cheat death.

And there is something else wrong with the world... like it is somehow splitting in two...
