Storms of the Future Cycle

The Rise of Lirin is an upcoming fanon. The adventure saga of the Avatar following Journey of Tala. Lirin will have to deal with tragic losses that break him and face an ancient force that has awakened for revenge. Rise of Lirin is the second part of the overall Storms of the Future Cycle.

Plot Edit

The world is at peace after the Fifth Nation War as Tala spent her life keeping the earth in balance. The Avatar has been reborn into the Fire Nation, with Prince Lirin of the Royal Family.

But things seem too good for those around the carefree Avatar who needs to only master earthbending before becoming a fully realized Avatar. Lirin will have to change his very character to become responsible when the world collapses into chaos.

Even while Lirin is facing a situation he is no way ready for, an old force comes to get its revenge on the Avatar. Can Lirin rise to the challenge?

The Rise of Lirin is set in a more modern era as technology has expanded greatly throughout the reaches of the world. Old power versus new power will clash here for what may be the last time. The timeline is at 398 AG at the start.

Characters Edit

  • Lirin: The Avatar born into the Fire Nation is a carefree, go-with-flow kind of man. Having finally mastered waterbending, he only has one element to learn before he is a fully realized Avatar. Lirin is easygoing and figures that the world is at peace and things are fine. Lirin is a ladies' man.
  • Zorin: Firelord Zorin is the serious and mindful father of Lirin. A determined and powerful man, Zorin will do anything to protect his homeland. Zorin has plans for his children.
  • Ursa:  The no-nonsense sister of Lirin and Crown-Princess of the Fire Nation. Lirin's older sister is Grand Marshal of the Army and a powerful woman, willing to sacrifice everything.
  • Luei: The Earth King has a very different view of what should have happened years ago under Avatar Tala's watch. He is determined to make things right.
  • Qon: Crown-Prince of the Earth Kingdom, a fierce and great man of his nation. He is the loyal lieutenant any father could ask for.
  • The Faceless: An ancient enemy that has been seeking a chance to kill the Avatars once and for all, he sees the status of Lirin as the right to justify his actions.
  • Koram: A dangerous enemy who has joined the Faceless in his quest for killing the Avatar.
  • Shi: A general and advisor to the Fire Lord. His title is the Dragon of Death. His less fabulous nickname is the "Pale Lord of Death" among the men.

Locations Edit

  • Dol Mordath: The ancient and haunted land of the north will be the battlefield of the Avatar and an ancient enemy.

Events Edit

Organizations Edit

  • The Faceless (organization): The followers of the Faceless. These fanatical people seek the overthrow of the Avatar and his position in the world. They are willing to use radical methods to reach their goal, including removing the current regimes and governments of the world to do it.

Notes Edit

  • Lirin is a mix of Kuruk and Aang as he started in the first season; however, like those two, he will grow up when serious matters hit him flat in the face.
  • Lirin's womanizing will be prevalent in the beginning of the story but will decline as the war intensifies.
  • This story is a tragedy and will not have a happy ending. Lirin will change drastically from all Avatars in his decisions towards the end.
  • Lirin will have a similar situation to Avatar Korra in some respects.
  • Rise of Lirin will be followed by Myths of the Empire, a short series of one-shots, detailing the events before continuing to Reclamation of Arein.
  • Lirin's eyes will be used to much effect.
  • The author will be very sad when this story is finished.
  • Some of the events here largely mirror the Dune saga.
