--------------------------------------------------------------------

NAME:YuXuan. NaLan (纳兰.昱轩)

AGE:22

NATIONALITY: Born in BaSinSe and having mission trip in Republic City

OCCUPATION: Pastor

AFFINITY: Fire, Earth

SKILLS

-- Representationalize Fire bending
Although YuXuan is a fire bender, he knows much about earth bending (according to his family). He was successful in applying an earth bending method into fire bending and becoming the first person who can accurately representationalize and maintain fire into certain shapes, like earth bending. He also made himself a fire arm which is no different from a real one as long as it is tied with a bandage after he lost his own one.

-- Treat with fire bending
Being a pastor, YuXuan not only provides spiritual help, he also practices physical treatment with fire bending. Like manipulating extremely thin fire needles to hit certain part inside the human body, or making a very quick and even burn to cauterize large-area bleeding immediately.

-- Cooking
Yu Xuan loves eating delicious food, so naturally, he is also very good at cooking. Because for him it’s just so “handy”

ADDITIONAL INFO

YuXuan. NaLan was born in an earth bending officer family, which served the earth kingdom royalty as an imperial bodyguard for century. Yu Xuan was raised up as an earth bender. He was taught everything about earth bending, even though he was never able to bend so much as a pebble. But at the age of 16, he found his fire...

YuXuan’s father was unspeakably furious when he finally found his son, who was supposed to be a pure earth bender, was actually a fire bender, he considered him as the greatest shame of the family, and his honor could be restored only by death. YuXuan escaped before his father crushed his body, but he lost his right arm in the struggle.

When YuXuan left Ba Sing Se, the city he had lived in for all his life, he was so hopelessly depressed. He considered fire bending as the root of his misfortune. While angry, he finds fire to be the only release for his rage and torment.

The last thing he burned down was pastor Kim’s house, but Kim didn’t blamed him, to the contrary, he comforted the pool soul with Gospel and faith. In God's love, YuXuan was able to restore his heart, and realized he still owned many things in his life. When he prayed, God opened another door for him: YuXuan created a brand new way to bend fire through his rich earth bending knowledge. He found he could control the shape and temperature of fire precisely and applied it into medicinal purposes, saving countless lives. He also made for himself a fully functional arm of flame.

YuXuan became a pastor himself afterwards. He’s on a missionary trip right now in republic city, a place that lost it's heart and soul after Avatar Aang died. The bender issue is pushing the city into chaos. He knows clearly that his destiny is to save people who have been hurt or twisted by the power of bending. A beautiful girl by the name of Mo Yan was one of those he saved.

Cool character and cool abilities ^^ Although I would have preferred it if he was more priest of a Buddhism-like cult or religion, because there's no Christianity or the concept of a single omnipotent God in the Avatar universe, but I think you have enough of that complain already ^^;  I LOVE your art style XD It's so elegant and detailed!

Cool! He is a Christian...I wonder why The Avatar series never tackled this religious issue like the presence of an omnipotent figure or figures? They have Raava and Vaatu as greater spirits, but never as gods...

That concept of making like 'constructs' out of fire is a pretty cool idea (especially like as a "fire arm"). Very cooooooooooool.

That's really cool. I always wondered if this was possible since people could waterbender fire as lightning and airbend air as sand.

I've been looking at a lot of these applications people have been submitting for the brand new LOK group, and I must say I really like this character! It was really clever to give him a makeshift arm out of fire. There's another one-armed character applying for the group and she's a female waterbender, and I really liked that design as well. I wish I would have known about this sooner so I could join haha.

I guess this gives a whole new meaning to firearm

But seriously, I love his design and his abilities. Fire being solid is not that far-fetched in the Avaverse, given that Jeong Jeong made fire walls and Zuko shielded himself with fire.

His backstory is a little melodramatic for my tastes, but I'll give you a pass on that. :+fav:

...... Ok so explain this to me. How does Christianity exist in Avatar? Last time I checked Avatar theology stems from non-Ambrahamic sources (Animism, Taoism, Buddhism, Vedic and Hindu philosophies I might be even some Confucian and Shinto flavor too) I haven't seen anything that resembles anything that could be considered monotheistic let alone. So how is Xuan a Christian when there is no Yeshua ben Yosef aka Jesus of Nazareth to deify?

Just thought I ask.

kelly1412 Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
good question.
But why not, they're nothing special beside the bending ability.
Most human being naturally seek God when they're in suffering, I believe as long as they are spiritual creatures, they need pastors.

You missed my point. There is no Christian god in Avatar.

Looking for faith is totally cool (I have like handful of both religious and irreligious shamans) and I have nothing against priests, clerics, sages, shamans or mystics (we have a canon guru for pete's sake), and more of those characters would be awesome.

All that I am saying is Xuan can totally be a priest of a cult that worships Badgermoles or is a priest of a temple dedicated to Mountain Spirit. Him being Christian pastor is nonsensical. Because there is no Jesus in Avatar (Ok so...Aang could be a kungfu Jesus but not that kind).

See what I am getting at?

Oh sorry, I misunderstood.
In this case my explaination would be:
Although Avatar's world has lots made-up things, the general life of that world is pretty much the same like where we live. I mean, although the creature are totolly different, their chef are fully comfident at cooking them; the virus maybe difference too but doctors in there know how to treat it. so in case of pastor, I believe they also clearly know their duty, even we can't us our logic to explain their faith.

I don't think I understand a word you just said. While things are different some things just don't exist. Christianity doesn't exist in Avatar. Therefore Christian pastors don't actually exist either.

My point is. Yes Xuan can be a priest; that is totally cool. Just not one serving the Christian god.

We can use our logic to explain their faith since it's based off of real world faiths like Hinduism or Buddhism.

I can't believe that he's called Xuan it makes me laugh because it's a very common name where I live. When I read Xuan I imagine a farmer with the cows... XD

no, he can't, but he can bend fire in a very earth bending way, he can accurately control the shape of fire.
