Neo Bahamut


The Legend of Korra


A series that looks at the lives of some of Republic City's inhabitants without focusing on the Avatar. Amount of stories depend on how many plotlines I feel I have time to complete and have something interesting to say. Said stories will not necessarily all be set in the same time period--for instance, some may be before the series while others are during, between seasons, or even after. Listed in release order, numbers denote chronological order, & also relationship to Legend of Korra's timeline. Currently includes:

Book 0: Void (虚), which starts 7 years before the Legend of Korra series and follows a nonbending healer, Aroma, who suffers from feelings of inadequacy. A chance encounter puts her at odds with the Purist Leader, also a nonbender, and exposes her to the dangers of Republic City's underground.

Book -1: Blood & Steel (血与钢), which starts 6 years prior to Book 0, but mostly takes place during the latter 3 years. Follows Euryale, who becomes a detective and tritagonist in Book 0, and Senthose, a Southern Water Tribe warrior who falls in with the Red Monsoons.

One vignette, Out of Ashes, which contains background information related to Book -1. It can be read at any time, but since it contains spoilers, it is recommended to be read after either Chapter 11 or 14 of the aforementioned Book.

Book 0.5: Grief (悲伤), which starts a few weeks after the end of Book 0. Follows Thiera, previously the deuteragonist, as she and her friends try to cope with loss and arrest the remaining Purists. But they may soon discover that the monsters they know are always better than those they never even expected.

Special thanks to Avatar Chi and a friend off-site for providing me with the Chinese characters and some other resources, as well as Tono555 for the character and chapter tables.


I release character pages whenever I feel that the lag between chapters is dragging particularly long. I avoid spoilers to a point, but it is not advised to read them if you are not caught up. Formatting is subject to change and the infobox colors don't necessarily match the characters' ethnicity. I couldn't keep up the lack of last names, so I apologize if anyone particularly liked that about Avatar.

The tables below may contain mild spoilers for the previous book(s), if applicable.

The status of the upcoming installments, as well as the subscriber list.


Prequel updates: As of 11/19/17, we're getting into the arc I've been wanting to do since I decided to write this, & so far I'm very happy with how the chapters have been turning ut. The holidays are making it difficult to find time to edit, but other than that, I'm making pretty good progress, & I think I'll even get it done in the planned amount of chapters.

Sequel updates: As of 9/18/17, the chapter "Hospitality" went up, and as I write this, "Preparations" is ready to follow. Unfortunately, that's pretty close to the limit of what's even been started so far.

General updates: I don't know why you'd read this on mobile, but if you are, I'm aware that it's not displaying properly & I have no idea how to fix it. I am also considering including personal illustrations into the story, & would be grateful if you would contribute your opinion either in the comments or on this thread, where you can see my progress on the art front.

In addition to all of that noise, I decided to try making the dates on the character pages a bit more specific, to hopefully make tracking continuity easier. I'm convinced that every edit I make to those damn things is only messing up the timeline even more.


As of Chapter 17, if you add yourself here, I'll send you a message each time I add a new page. Simply start a new line of text and use the format # {{wall|<username>}}. Of course you can remove yourself at any time, and I'm also willing to add/remove you if you encounter me and tell me to.
