"Yes, the life of a mind bender is tough work. It can be quite painful work, too, but with training and practice comes tolerance. You shall be a great Mind Bender, and you and I will work together to unite the five nations back into one. It will just take time." - the Father
Mind Benders Chapter 1: The Forgotten Element

It is 535 BG, and the world has five nations: Air Nomads, Water Tribes, Earth Kingdoms, Fire Nation, and Mind Walkers. The people of the other nations are content with living separated, but the Mind Walkers want to bring the five nations and elements back to their purest form: Energy-Bending.

A young boy is born to the Mind Walkers, and is raised by his father to live in balance and harmony. His father tragically dies, and the boy is left alone in the world. But he is not truly alone, as the Mind Benders have a connection to the Spirit World, and can see the spirits of the ones they love.

The first Avatar is also born, which angers most of the Mind Walkers. The Mind Walkers think this will just further separate the five elements and nations. When the two men, Avatar and Mind Walker, unite, it will cause an event so tragic, the world will be forever changed.
