LOKAU/KWAU Warriors Appointed To The Avatar
A. The Great Spirit of Destiny guided The Avatar Spirit
Around 19,829 BSC, The Year of the Rooster, the spirit of Light and Peace, Raava, had many prearranged combats with the spirit of Dark and Chaos, Vaatu.
Being sealed together as one, the physical world and the spirit world suffered from the conflicts between the spirits who were the complement of each other.
The First Harmonic Convergence occurred.
Afterwards, from the fear of the two spirits, the humans huddled together on the mighty backs of the lion turtles.
Spirits remaining in the physical world formed spirit wilds for habitation and fellowship.
They like Raava and Vaatu became hostile towards humans.1
The Second Harmonic Convergence happened approximately 10,000 years after the first. Raava and Vaatu became separated, a human merged with Raava to become The Avatar, and Vaatu became imprisoned in the Tree of Life. Avatar Wan sealed the North and South spirit portals closing the connection between the physical world and the spirit world. 1
Now, The Great Spirit of Destiny became involved with The Avatar and the merge of Wan and Raava, The Avatar Spirit.
She waited for time to pass approximately a millennium and to the eleventh life cycle for The Avatar.
Dressed as a common merchant, she approached the fully realized Avatar.
She had no deceit in her eyes and no guile.
A simple transaction was to be made.
The Avatar would said yes, or no.
The Spirit of Destiny always gave free-will to her subjects.
[Bowed] Greetings, Avatar Sorartok.
I have heard you feel you are broken.
Maybe because your home, the Water tribe in the North has split and separated.
Do not feel worried.
For one day their wounds will be healed.
Avatar Sorartok: Thank you, M’lady?
I am a humble merchant.
Selling rare coins made by the finest coin smiths. Would you like to see what is offered?
Avatar Sorartok: I’m the Avatar. Which does not pay very well. I have little money to pay…
Well, I have two sets to offer.
The creator told me they must be offered to The Avatar first. No charge to the Avatar.
Here are the sets. The Guardian Titanium Coins.
The Protector Titanium Coins.
Both sets are to be offered together as one set…
[Opened the pouches, showed coins]
A Blue Dragon of Light and a Red Dragon of Dark for each set.
They give the power of regeneration.
Out live your friends.
[Offered both pouches]
Avatar Sorartok: So, you become… immortal?
You do die… sometimes painfully…
However, you come back to life.
[Offered both pouches] [Made an Avatar Pouty face]
Avatar Sorartok: [Sighed] Stop that… you look like me… No charge? [She shook head ‘yes’]
Okay... Yes, I’ll take them. [She hands pouches to the Avatar]
Destiny: [All giddy and happy, BIG SMILE, bowed] Thank you, Avatar for your kindness.
[Looked at pouches] Guess, I had no choice…
Destiny: [Raised her head, looked intently into the eyes of the Avatar, her eyes glowed white as the snow on the mountains near the South Pole, Gently blowing in the breeze, Destiny's hair became silky white – the color of the Silver Birch in the wild forests of the Earth Kingdom.] Remember, Avatar. You always have a choice. Always!!
The glow of the merchant’s eyes faded.
And the Avatar stood – alone.
B. The Guardian of the Avatar. The Protector of the Avatar.2
Zero hour. O ASC, The Year of the Dragon. Because Avatar Aang abandoned his responsibility to the Spirit and Physical worlds, the Avatar Spirit or Avatar State (when activated) froze him into a block of ice – punishment for his transgression. The original Avatar renegade, Avatar Aang, was eventually set free and the Avatar cycle continued. But the Spirit world and the Physical world suffered greatly for this delay in time. The Air Nomads society destroyed and both worlds severely out of balance, the Avatar Spirit knew that more than one Avatar cycle would be needed to bring balance and order to the worlds – if only for a short time. Chaos still ruled the worlds. So one human with the knowledge and experience from the past would be needed to assist the Avatar in bringing balance to the world.
The Avatar Spirit remembered the transaction between the merchant woman and summoned the pouches with the coins.
One by one, every avatar from Wan to the current avatar was asked this simple question, “For the good of the physical world and the spirit world, will you become the Guardian of the Avatar?”
All answered, “No.”
For they knew the price of the transaction.
1. Loss of intimate connection with the Avatar Spirit.
2. Loss of all powers of the Avatar including ‘native’ bending (Kyoshi was earth).
Problem… None of those restrictions were in the original instructions. Simple. Easy. Instructions.21.
One human (Alive or deceased).
One Avatar (Current or deceased). Two essences (spirits). One body.
2. One a non-bender. One a bender. Human or Avatar. Two shall become One.
3. Verbal or written agreement between human and Avatar to pledge to become Warrior.
4. Read written instructions and agree to the terms.
Guardian / Protector serves from one Harmonic Convergence to another.
5. Place appropriate coin in correct position and recite chant simultaneously.3
6. Upon physical death of both essences, Avatar must begin the merge process by offering her essence to resurrect the human.
7. If merge completed, a period of bonding begins between the human and the Avatar. Not to exceed one hundred years.
Then the human / Avatar merge will separate into two physical bodies. One shall become Two.
The Avatar Spirit had changed the terms of the Guardian and Protector Coins.
After Avatar Aang’s rebellion, the Avatar Spirit became paranoid about future renegades.
Hoping that any renegade would seek to leave the Avatar Spirit, the terms and conditions were changed.
The Guardian of the Avatar paid for those changes… Until Destiny took charge and freed The Guardian from those bogus terms.
The Guardian of the Avatar is now whole…
The Protector of the Avatar (if created) will also be whole…
The Old Avatar Spirit… Is dead. The New Avatar Spirit is merge of Korra and Raava.2
