Fire Lord Sozin has discreetly colonized a substantial amount of western and northwestern Earth Kingdom territory. Avatar Roku has recently found out about Sozin’s plans to colonize and annex parts of the Earth Kingdom and has confronted his friend, saying that his actions could lead to a terrible conflict. Although Sozin put his plans aside for 25 years, a natural disaster struck the island where Avatar Roku resided, and in his efforts to contain the cataclysmic blast, Roku has perished. A new, young and untrained Avatar will emerge from the Air Nomads, giving Sozin an opportunity to execute his earlier plans of world domination. With a belligerent fire nation on the rise, there is little hope left of maintaining the long lasting peace that has endured between the nations.
