A Water Priest sprinted into the throne room of the royal palace in the Northern Water Tribe and said, "Tui and La have revealed to us the next Water Tribe Avatar."
"That's wonderful," said Chief Kreon, "Who is he?"
"She? Is she a northerner or a southerner?"
"Neither, sir. The next Avatar is a girl from the Foggy Swamp Tribe."
"A swamp girl as our new Avatar. I refuse to believe it. Either it's a joke or you're wrong."
"Don't question the spirits. We're not wrong. You have to believe us, or else. Ever since Avatar Alo died six months ago you ordered us to find out who the next Avatar is. Now that we have, you're angry. Why? Because you wanted a male from the north? You judge her before you get to know her, before she knows who she is. The avatar is a baby now. No one knows except us."
"I don't need to know her. She is a swamp girl, not fit to be the Avatar, now or in the future."
"You know just as much as I do that there will be a problem we can't face without her help. You know—"
"Enough! We're discussing this problem too early. Leave and don't bother me with this for the next 15 years."
