|Order of the White Lotus|
The Order of the White Lotus is a powerful organization in the world. Having members from all over the world, they have a great variety in abilities and points of view. They used to be a secret organization, but have since become public after Sozin's Comet and their liberation of Ba Sing Se from the Fire Nation.
The Order of the White Lotus was a secret society that shared its love of art, beauty, and philosophy. They remained this way for a long time until the necessity to stand up and fight came in 100 AG and liberated Ba Sing Se from the occupying Fire Nation.

The White Lotus centered a number of their order in the city in order to tain the Avatar in the elements, finding masters across the world. Urri's brother, , taught Tala earthbending and a member of the order taught her firebending.
It was her firebending teacher that put the order in hot water. As Tala was about to start firebending, Regent of the Fire Nation,, had offered to teach her firebending. The order chose to use one of their one members, who was a classmate of Rishu but at the bottom of the class compared to Rishu who was at the top. Rishu took this as an insult and banned the Order of the White Lotus from the Fire Nation. He stated that the only way to undo this was to publicly apologize and send the Avatar to his estate to begin training. The Order refused and so were denied to ever set foot in the Fire Nation, including any of its members, even when not on duty.
