American English


Ferrandor Republic


The Legend of Korra


It has been twelve years since the Equalist Revolution and eleven years since the spirit portals opened. In this time, there have been emerging independent city-states, emerging industries in aircraft, new lines of nonbending weapons including firearms, the explosion of the stock market, and the rise of the Central Bank practice in the four major nations. This uncanny amount of wealth in Republic City, people became gullible and naive. Novels like The Great Gonzu highlighted this silly attitude of the people. This lavish lifestyle soon ended with the collapse of the stock-market and hyperinflation. Wealthy citizens became street bums overnight. The Metalbending Police soon were overwhelmed by the crime and the charity soup kitchens were flooded with hungry patients. Republic City was in a depression, but it wasn't limited to the United Republic. Ba Sing Se homeless citizens flocked to the countryside, and the Fire Nation's great factories and tenements faced foreclosure from the banks in the capital. The Water Tribes faced austerity and saw a resurgence in agricultural activity. Smaller settlements like Whale Tail Island and Kyoshi Island were not as badly affected by the depression. However, desperate times drive people to the brink and back. The Equalists have returned, but this time want more than to put benders in their place, they also want to redistribute what little wealth remains in the world. The world is three years into the depression and Avatar Korra is powerless to fight this menace. Now there will be new heroes needed to rise to the occasion to restore sanity to a world gone mad.

Spoiler-Free Notes

  • There will be an almost complete absence of relationships in this story.
  • The events described in the individual chapters correlate to real life events in Human History.
    • For example: The resurgence of the Equalists is similar to that of Communist Party of America in the 1930s.
  • The introduction of firearms is to add a more realistic feel to this chapter in the Avatar World.
  • The writing of this fannon pre-dates book 3 of The Legend of Korra. Therefore the return of the Air Nomad race was not included in this series accept for a few individuals.
