"Nadat Avatar Roku overleed was de verbindende factor tussen de vier naties verdwenen. Al snel liepen de spanningen op. Vooral water en vuur, van oudsher elkaars tegenpolen, konden steeds minder van elkaar hebben. Het begon klein: Anti-water propaganda in de vuurnatie, een ban op bezoeken van vuurmeesters op de noordpool..."

Event


Helaas is de korte periode van rust snel tot een eind gekomen. Tijdens een 'vredes' vergadering tussen de leiders van de vier naties heeft de vuurnatie de stad Gaoling in beslag genomen. Hoe zouden het aarderijk en diens inwoners hier op reageren? De meningen over de situatie zijn verdeeld, maar over een ding is men zo goed als zeker. Betekend dit het begin van een oorlog?

Posten in Gaoling is op dit moment op eigen risico. Ook zijn er kansen op random events in topics die zich daar afspelen. Ook dient iedere bewoner binnen te zijn voor zonsondergang!

Bericht van Ling Ye Zheng op ma apr 16, 2018 4:19 pm


UNRAVEL
THE WORLD
Ling Ye
UNRAVEL
THE WORLD
Ling Ye

Basic Statistics
Full Name: Ling Ye Zheng
Reason or meaning of name: Ling in Chinese means spirit/soul, together his name translates into 'He of the spirit'. Ling Ye's parents gave him this name hoping he would be able to come to a greater understanding of life and death and everything that is between.
Nickname: Ling, LingLing, the scribe, the writer
How did they get it?: Ling is just an abbrevation of his full name, LingLing is a nickname the elder council/his mom gave him. Both nicknames the scribe and the writer' refer back to his job as a scribe for the elder council. People who call him either one of those are people who need something of him or generally aren't very well aquainted with Ling Ye.
Age: 28
Visual Age: Everything ranging from 20-28
Date of Birth: 2nd of November
Zodiac: Scorpio
Zodiac information: The Scorpio is loyal, passionate, observant and dynamic. The Scorpio is also easily jealous, obsessive, suspicious, manipulative and unyielding. The Scorpio is independent, and like to be in control. Scorpios are very deep, intense people, there is always more then meets the eye. They present a cool, detached and unemotional air to the world yet lying underneath is tremendous power, extreme strength, intense passion and a strong will and persistent drive.

Dating and making love with Scorpios.
The Scorpio man is unlike any other astrology sign. The Scorpio man presents a strong masculine, sexual force. The Scorpio man is easy to seduce and take home for the night, it is much harder to form a real relationship with him. Toying with a Scorpio male is an unwise move. He will be jealous and possessive. Scorpio men make excellent protectors and you will always feel safe, attracted under his radiating, passionate and energetic power. The Scorpio can be direct and forceful and seem to be an expert at what they do. They continue to seduce you even as the act continues. A thrilling experience not for the faint of heart!
Species: Airbender
Gender: Male
Blood type: A-
Sexual Orientation:  Omnisexual
Home town: Northern Air temple

Personality: Ling Ye is basically your perfect stereotypical air nomad; he is kind, calm and understanding. Yep, all the ingredients are there for him to succeed in airbender life.

but,

There is always more than meets the eye. Ling ye is not as free of worldly desires as many may think. Somewhere deep inside there is a growing hunger that is slowly nibbling away at his soul. A hunger for greater power and recognition from the elder council, his friends and family. He wants to be known for something, he doesn't want to just fade away in time. Or in other words, he doesn't want to be just dumb cattle waiting to be pushed around by other benders, he's convinced that his role is a more special one, a role especially made for only himself.

Because of this festering desire Ling Ye may come off a little strong at times or act more selfish than the average air nomad. Ling Ye makes sure he behaves himself around peers though, he doesn't want anybody knowing that, inside, he's struggling with resisting the temptation to wreck havoc to the traditional air nomad ways.

Why does he want power, I hear you asking? Because he wants to be somebody, a person of worth, and,  he believes that he can do so much better. He can right the wrongs, if they would just listen to him. His occupation as a scribe gives him an edge. Soon the elders will deem him as trustworthy, which is when he can gain even more useful information about the air nomads and the current political state. Information to tear down those walls, and let non-airbenders into  the air temple. They could easily help and/or shelter so many people around the world. So why do they keep hidden away from the rest of the world? Scared?

Well Ling Ye sure is not. If a war breaks out should they just watch and let all the other people suffer? The people who have nowhere to hide like they do? If they want allies they should start by giving a shit about others.

Current Residence: He resides at the northern air temple, but really wants to journey across the world. See the northern watertribe and walk through the capital city of the fire nation.
Occupation: He is a scribe for the elder council. This means that he is present during their meetings and writes down what has been said. He doesn't say a word himself, it's like he isn't there, he is quiet, observes and writes.
For how long?: Ling Ye has been a scribe for over four years now. You could say he has, by now, earned the trust of many people through his well written reports where not a single detail has been omitted.
Do they like his/her job?:  Somewhat, at least more than anything else that he's capable of doing right now. Besides, he likes how he's able to pick up on the news and plans. Even though he can't influence people from where he is, he can certainly earn their trust and gain kowledge of their political views.
Salary: 0,- Ling Ye doesn't get paid a dime for his work as true air nomads shouldn't care for such worldly desires.

Powers: 8/10

Family
Any significant ancestors?: The only thing that's for sure is that Ling Ye isn't a pure airbender. His father was a pure firebender for one, so Ling Ye is part of a whole line of firebenders. This is why some people might still be wary of him. Not a lot of people know about this however, but the people that do might bully him for whatever reason.

Parents (describe relationship): Ling Ye is very fond of his mother and father. They have always been a happy family. Due to circumstances his family moved to the southern air temple where they were in need of his father's expertise regarding wind buffaloes or air bisons if you prefer. He hasn't seen them for quite a while but still keeps in touch through letters.

Have they ever had any pets?: Yes, an air bison called Peter.  Peter was an airbison calf that his father had given to Ling Ye. It was the weakest one out of the litter and, sadly, it didn't live for very long. It was supposed to fly after two or three weeks but after two months it still couldn't. After half a year the animal got sick and didn't survive. Ling Ye was ruined by it, and blamed himself for it. He hasn't mustered up the courage yet to get another, scared that it will once again, not work out.

Possession this character values most: His books! Pls refrain from touching any of the books in Ling Ye's attic/library. or rather, just don't step in altogether. There are books there that Ling Ye values over your, no, even his own life. Some of them are simply extremely rare or exspensive and others just have personal value. Besides books he likes to collect seashells and other trinkets of nature with zero to no value.
Why is it so important to them?: Do you really need to ask this question? I mean... books is knowledge. knowledge is power. Power is control. Enough said.

History
Ling ye was born as the first and only child of a happy couple. His mother, Gemma, an airbender such as himself and his father, Torak, a pure'bred' firebender. Even though they were many prejudices against the marriage of his parents,they were happy together.

Ling Ye was raised in the suburbs of the northern air temple, a good walking distance to the center of the temple. As you might have guessed Ling Ye's family was pretty poor at the time. It was only when his father, Torak, started his new job as a flying bison trainer that the family moved up a social and an economic class.
Even though Ling Ye was liked by most of his peers, he clearly preferred being left alone as he usually didn't participate in any of their 'silly' games and their so-called 'adventures'. Ling Ye was more focused, focused on his future, on what he wanted to become. Ling ye started airbending at the age of four, a little clumsily at first, but he showed great progress over his pre-teen years. While all the other kids were playing, Ling ye took it up on himself to practise every single day for hours and hours on end. Not only did Ling Ye feel like he had to master the art as soon as possible, but he also loved the feeling of calm and freedom it gave him. Even when Ling ye had disturbing thoughts, he could always put his mind at ease and calm down after a few airbending movements. He came to see airbending as the good friend he never had, but had truthfully always needed.

By the time he was fifteen years old, most airbending techniques were like second nature to him and he had long surpassed some of his peers. 'If only they had spent their time better.' he always thought. Ling ye kept pushing on, kept on pushing himself to the limit each day until he puked or simply blacked out of sheer exhaustion. Even when the older air nomads complimented him on his form, he was never happy, it was never enough. He could do even better.

Around the same age, the other students seemed to find it necessary to bully him for his unpure lineage. They called him names and told him multiple times that he would never be as good as a pure airbender. Words that only pushed him harder, if only to prove himself to others.

It wasn't until Ling Ye turned 18 that he started acting out towards his peers, his parents and even the older air nomads. He wanted more, he wanted to become even better and he felt like some of them were holding him back on purpose. He could take the pressure, he could train even harder and harder, but all they talked about was letting go. He didn't want to let go, he wanted control. Coincidentally Ling Ye's parents moved to the southern air temple around the same time. His father got an offer for a job as air bison trainer over there and he decided to take it as he felt his 'talents' were needed elsewhere. They decided to leave Ling Ye in the capable hands of the elder nomads which is when Ling Ye probably enstranged from others even more.

Even though he led a pretty solemn and boring life full of training, eating, sleeping and training again Ling Ye grew up to be a pretty balanced guy. At the age of 24 he started his job as a scribe for the elder council. There was an opening and he needed money for his living expenses which is why he decided to apply. He was chosen out of a few others for his excellent penmanship. At first he found his job extremely boring and something that only wasted the time that he could otherwise spend training or reading. But later, he found out that he was able to learn a lot from these elder councils as they talked freely about stuff that was going on in the world.

One day, during training, Ling ye made a friend for the first time in many years. Her name was Kyell and she was the most precious and pure thing he had ever seen. If there was something a as a personification of hope, it would be her. After he met her, she decided to join in on some of his trainings where she would even occasionally correct or teach him. Ling ye didn't mind, as long as he was improving, it was all good. It was together with Kyell at the age of 26 that he discovered a kind of special thing; hypersensitivtiy. He could detect threats slightly earlier than others could and so if Kyell tried to attack him he could almost forsee this and evade at a timely manner. Of course it didn't always work, and it still doesn't. It's more of a 'come and go-thing' than anything else right now. He tries to deepen his understanding of it but has had some trouble of finding a proper master who can teach him. And besides, he's preoccupied with other, more important, stuff. Some dark thoughts have clouded Ling Ye's mind recently, thoughts that shouldn't be. That he doesn't want to have, but has. He can do better than anyone. And he'll prove it to them somehow.
