The Tales of Ba Sing Se by ShamanEileen The Tales of Ba Sing Se by ShamanEileen
So uh... this is an idea that popped up in my mind when I took a test about what kind of bender I'd be xD So I turned out to be an airbender and I decided to design an alter ego. Lately, that alter ego changed and turned into a more independend chara, so I couldn't help myself designing a few more peopleand... this is the result.


I was looking for a title for these guys' stories, and while I was watching Avatar's episode named "The Tales of Ba Sing Se", I knew I'd take the same name. Since it's an ep that mainly doesn't have any importance related to the plot (like a filler ep), and narrates little, individual stories of many characters in that city... I thought it'd be the perfect title for these characters' stuff.

The story takes place in Ba Sing Se, during the First/Second Book of ATLA, I guess.

The characters are the following (from left to right):
:bulletred:Jae-Hwa, a non-bender warrior from the Earth Kingdom who has a strong temper and, as you can see, has gone through a lot of blades incidents before she reached a better technique. Even though she's probably the bravest of the team when it comes to fight... she freaks out when she has to deal with kids and babies. Ref sheet:

:bulletgreen:Keoni, Jae-Hwa's brother, an earthbender and hell of a narcissist. He loves himself more than anyone and describes himself as fabulous. And, actually, his earthbending skills are awesome, which makes him even more hateful. He wouldn't be able to do anything else by himself though. Loves to be surrounded by girls, even if he considers none of them to be worthy of his own beauty. Reference sheet:

:bulletblue:Najuq, a refugee kid from the Water Tribe who barely speaks and has lost his family (the reasons, though, are unknown). Reference sheet:

:bulletorange:Sangmu is an airbender. When I found this [link] I thought that, actually, Aang being the last Airbender was a very relative; all the monks of the Air Temples had been exterminated, but I bet there were at least a few other airbenders out of it. So yeah, she obviously has no tattoos because she's never been in any Air Temple, and she hasn't even known any monk, basically because they all died 100 years ago xD Her bending skills are a bit crazy, since she's never had any master to be taught, and mainly doesn't use them, because it would bring her troubles. She was probably a bastard child whose mother raised in the Earth Kingdom until she lost her in one of their escapes. War is war. Reference Sheet:

:bulletyellow:Benjiro is a non-bender warrior who's always lived in the countryside, but war has brought him to Ba Sing Se, as the rest of them. He could look like a very goofy person, and also unattractive... but, for some reason, he gets the girls he wants: his talking skills, his strenght and his big (but clever) heart find a way easily (this pisses Keoni off). Ref sheet:


Aaaaaaaand that's it. I'm thinking of a Fire Nation character, but well, we'll see. These are just silly ideas anyway xD

EDIT: Finally a firebender!

They look really likeable and full of life :) I like how there are two non-benders since they often seem to be underestimated.

Why thank you! :heart: Non-benders need more love, they're always so underestimated, indeed, when they can be really cool too!
