Ta-daaa! My character of a story in the Avatar-Universe I'm writing together with a good friend of mine
Yun Tao is a young firebender who fled the Fire Nation because he's an outlawed criminal.
He ends up in Ba Sing Se where he meets the calm and serious Tian Yuen from the Zhang-Li familiy which runs a quite popular herb shop.
They give him a leg-up and after a while he even gets a job as a waiter in a bar called "Wheel of fortune".
To earn additional money, Yun Tao decides to participate in the not quite legal Underground-fights that take place in a big underground-arena.
Every fighter has to wear a mask that represents an animal - Yun Taos mask represents a monkey wherefore he is called the "Fire monkey"
First he does well in these fights, but then suffers a bitter reverse when it comes to the last fight against an anonymous earthbender called the "Mole-hedgehog".
In this fight his mask shatters, so his opponent is able to see his face.
Not knowing that this "anonymous" person is no less a figure than his newly acquired friend Tian Yuen he continues fighting in the arena.
Tian Yuen finds it amusing that Yun Tao does not know who he's fighting and offers him private lessons. Yun Tao is a pretty naive guy and suspects nothing, so he agrees.
It's most likely gonna be a lovestory (.. Acutally I'm sure that it's gonna be a lovestory but it's more exciting when I don't say that xD) and I'm really looking forward to that!
Hope you like it, fave and comment if you want!
