Mo Ce Sea
|Location on map|
The sea serves as a location for major naval incidents and is most notably the home of Crescent Island, Roku's island, and the seaport village, an important Earth Kingdom port. The Mo Ce Sea has seen countless naval battles during the Hundred Year War and played host to the incredible Fire Navy blockade, keeping all outsiders from Fire Nation waters. It also connects to Republic City through an inlet known as Yue Bay.
Aang and his friends journeyed across the Mo Ce Sea in order to reach the Fire Temple before sunset on the winter solstice to see Avatar Roku. As they neared the Fire Nation border, they encountered a Fire Navy blockade under control by then-Commander Zhao, who ordered his forces to attack the Avatar by catapulting fireballs at the incoming flying bison. Prince Zuko, also in hot pursuit of Aang, chose to cross the Mo Ce Sea into Fire Nation waters despite having been banished from the Fire Nation. Aang, Katara, and Sokka managed to evade the blockade and reach the temple in time for Aang to talk to Roku.
Seventy years later, in the immediate aftermath of the collapse of Amon's Anti-bending Revolution, he and his brother, former Councilman Tarrlok, traveled across the sea to escape from Republic City and start a new life. Here, Tarrlok blew up their speedboat, killing them both instantly.
