Crackdown is a fanon by the user Alesso. It is set in modern times, specifically in the year 913 AG. It follows the current Avatar, Kaiden, as he struggles to fulfill his duty as Avatar in this now very different world.


You know when you think about it Benders have an unbelievable amount of power, for centuries they've decided wars and shaped civilizations. Although most Benders have primarily used their abilities to not only help themselves but also their fellow men, some would use this ability not to help, but rather hurt. Luckily over time technology has evolved to a point where a non-bender can stand on equal terms with a Bender and in some cases even surpass a Bender.

The past century saw a war in which a faction comprised of Benders of all 4 elements brought death and destruction in untold proportions. With the Avatar, who had previously kept the tensions between the Benders and Non Benders at a stalemate nowhere to be seen, the situation was desperate. Luckily due to the intervention of a faction known only as the "The Protectors" the Benders were defeated and the survivors exiled from the major cities.

Bending has since been seen as a weapon of destruction and steps have been taken to limit the number of individuals who can manipulate an element. The Avatar has not been heard from since the start of the war; some say the spirit has abandoned the mortal world, while others suspect Protector involvement.

In the year 913 AG the world is dominated by technology, Bending has been reduced to only small select groups of people and is now seen not as a gift but as a curse. The entire world is policed by the still illusive Protectors who see Bending as something that can and must be destroyed. When a young boy discovers he is the new Avatar, he quickly finds his life is about to take a turn for the worst...


  • Kaiden - A 16 year old boy living in a Firebender camp in northern Fire Nation, He is the current Avatar.


I - Rude Awakening - When Protectors arrive at Kaiden's camp looking for a wanted criminal the camp refuse to give the man up, incensed by this disobedience the Protectors result to force.
