In a war-torn world of elemental magic, a young boy reawakens to undertake a dangerous mystic quest to fulfill his destiny as the Avatar. Aang was a male Air Nomad born in 12 BSC and the Avatarduring the century-long conflict known as the Hundred Year War. His immediate predecessor was Avatar Roku, and his immediate successor is Avatar Korra. During his lifetime, Aang, like all Avatars, was the only person capable of using all four bending disciplines: airbending, waterbending, earthbending and firebending. He was also one of a select few Avatars, and one of the first in many cycles to learn the ancient art of energybending. Aang was the first Avatar seen using the technique, and Avatar Korra was the second known Avatar to utilize energy-bending.
