"Is the Devil you know, better than the one you don't?"
The Rise of the Dark Empire Series was a fanfiction series that took place near the end of the "Avatar: The Last Airbender" series, despite starting in "The Last Airbender", it actually starts full swing a year after Ozai's defeat at the celebration of Zuko's reign as Fire Lord. A new Nation is found to the West and South-West as the Elemental Knights begin to activate.
The Background History of the Series follows the Original Canon time-line however its speaks of the Ancient Age, an Age Ten Million Years ago that caused the Avatar to become a soldier like any other, as two great nations fought a war around the world in an attempt to gain control of the world.
|"A long time ago, during what's known as the Ancient Age, two great forces struggled for control of the world. They were called Zathenia and Athenia. Their fortunes waxed and waned, but neither could ever gain the upper hand. In a bid to finish the war once and for all, Zathenia created the Elemental Knights. And just like that the tides changed; before long Athenia stood on the brink of defeat. But the Athenia forces made one, last desperate counter-attack. At the price of many lives, they used "sealing magic" to entrap the Zathenia Knights and banish the Zathenian God Emperor. Without their super weapons, the Zathenians were over whelmed by the Athenia Spellcasters. Now it was their turned to be pushed to the edge of defeat. However before the Athenia could finish off their foes, they turned against themselves and their empire collapsed into civil war. Eventually both civilizations, Zathenia and Athenia alike, faded away. For all their sacrifices, neither side ever gained ultimate victory, in the end their bloody struggle was all in vain. However, the oracles prophesied a final battle would be fought ten millennia later..."|
