Avatar: The Last Airbender

The Life and Times of a Wanderer, also known as Deshi Hong's Diaries, is a three-part story detailing the life of Deshi Qiu Hong, a young firebender who was raised in Ba Sing Se. From the Desert Death March to the frontlines of the 100-Year War, Deshi's story parallels that of Team Avatar as he makes his way through the war-torn ruins of his nation in search of freedom and honor.


PART ONE - The Victim

Prologue & A Virtuous Boy

The Lieutenant

Stopping even for a day gives Shu and Deshi, as well as an entire village, more than they bargained for. Meet Lieutenant Zhao - the most merciless man in the Firelord's army.

A Strange Tower

Lost in the desert, Zhao's men have no choice but to seek shelter in an un-cleared building, leaving the refugees to wait in the sands.
