The Black Shadow

The Black Shadow is the opposite of the Avatar and a manifestation of true evil. The Last Black Shadow was a man called Lian Xing who saw his family murdered and his lust for revenge caused him to be chosen for the spirit. Unlike the Avatar Spirit the Black Shadow only merges with an individual who's emotional turmoil is aimed at a certain source and is so intense they risk everything for it.


The Fall of The Keepers

When Avatar Roku destroyed the Fire Nation Avatar Temple on Crescent Island he did something he didn't count on as that temple also held a Purotekuta that held 'The Black Shadow' Spirit within. The reason it was there in the first place was that the people Lian Xing wanted to kill were Fire Nation assassins. They were sent by the Fire Sages to eliminate one of their former members and what was supposed to be a simple job turned into a massive fiasco when ended with the former member dead and his wife killed 'accidentally'.

When Lian Xing turned up at the temple he put up a valiant fight even killing 5 sages but his training was not enough and was eventually killed, as the Black Shadow attempted to flee it was caught by the Purotekuta[1] as one was placed under each Avatar temple originally designed to store the Avatar Spirit in the event of any complications in the cycle for example if no baby was born in a week after the Avatar's death in the next nation. With the Black Shadow now protected the sages believed the root of all evil was locked away. However the spirit is free awaiting the right time to strike...

A few years later it managed to infiltrate the soul of A Young Boy. Due to the boy's loneliness he was an ideal subject for the spirit. After many years of inhabiting him, and slightly draining his life force, he managed to increase the boy's physical and mental capabilities. The boy began his trail of destruction all in the pursuit of Aang's death.
