Appearance: short-ish, jet black hair with a slightly blue-ish sheen and a few natural white streaks; heterochromia, left eye is ice blue and right eye is ruby red; tall for his age with a fit build; lightly tanned skin
Personality: He tends to appear cold and serious initially and, for the most part, he is. He is typically quiet and tends to keep to himself. He is patient, though he does have a somewhat short fuse and loud people annoy him. He also thinks reckless people are aggravating. He can stay calm in most circumstances. While he does tend to seem cold a lot, most of the time it's just him being honest. He also tends to be colder to other males than females.
Bending: Water/Ice and blood (only during a full moon)
Backstory: He was born to a waterbending couple in the Northern Water Tribe during a full moon and discovered bloodbending at a surprisingly young age (7). He soon accepted bloodbending as a part of himself, like his waterbending, and began secretly practicing it every full moon. However, when he noticed bad changes in his mental state, like paranoia and the like, he stopped using his bloodbending and decided he would only ever use it if he REALLY needed to. He began focusing more on his waterbending and, eventually, icebending after that, his mental state gradually going back to normal.
Weapon: Having three different types of bending as well as healing, it's not likely that he would need any other weapons, but he keeps a few hidden knives on his person just in case.
Other: Both of his parents are still alive and he has five younger siblings, Mizuko (brother; 15 years old), Lorraine (sister; 14 years old), Layla and Nalla (twin sisters; 11 years old), and Vitona (brother; 9 years old); No one knows about him being a bloodbender, not even his family; He wears an eyepatch over his red eye, 'cause a lot of people have said that it's unnerving.
Name: Ryu (means 'Dragon Spirit')
Appearance: He is a bit tall for his age and a bit underweight. He has short-ish, messy, dark brown hair with odd fiery orange tips and golden-amber eyes. He has sun-tanned skin and a scar across the left side of his neck.
Personality: He's mostly laid back and doesn't really worry about much. He has a strong intuition about who he can trust and who he can't, as a result of being a homeless orphan for most of his life. He tends to find humor in making shop owners mad, by letting them see him steal stuff from their shop/stand, causing them to chase him. He may seem pretty care-free most of the time, but he does have a fierce temper and he's very protective of his friends. He doesn't really like all the attention he gets from being the Avatar, though.
Bending: Primarily fire/lightning, but he can also use the other elements, though he still needs to work on them. He may even become the first Avatar to Shadowbend. ^^
Back Story: When he was only a couple months old he got terribly ill with a disease that had already killed every one of the many infants it infected. His parents were desperate to find a doctor who could cure him, but they couldn't. With no other option, they took him to the home of the ancient dragons, Ran and Shaw, to be healed. The dragons deemed his parents worthy and so they healed him, turning the tips of his hair fiery orange in the process. His father died when he was two and his mother died when he was three, so he was put in an orphanage. He ran away from the orphanage when he was 6 and has lived on the streets ever since.
Weapon: his sword that he stole from a great swordsman
Other: When he firebends while he's angry, his fire will have some black and dark red in it, but if he firebends any other time his fire has several other, brighter colors in it (like Ran and Shaw's fire); When he was healed, Ran and Shaw entrusted an egg to Ryu's parents for him, but it didn't hatch until he was barely 6 years old, just a couple months before he ran away from the orphanage; He named the little dragon Flame and Flame has scales with all different shades of red mixed together.
Appearance: average height for her age; mid-back length, strawberry blonde hair that she sometimes puts up in a ponytail or pigtails; blue-silver eyes; light blue arrow tattoos on arms, legs, and an arrow visible on his forehead; light tan skin
Personality: She has a very happy-go-lucky attitude. She's almost always optimistic, but can be an airhead (pun intended XD) at times. She is friendly and doesn't really like violence, but she'll fight if she has to. She is a very loyal friend and would do anything for those she cares about.
Backstory: Her mother was an airbender, but her father didn't having any bending, so she was presumed to not be a bender when she didn't show any signs of it at the usual times airbenders showed signs. But, it turned out, she was just a late bloomer. But, when she did start airbending, she quickly excelled in it and got her tattoos before any of the other kids in her generation. She was mostly ignored by the other kids, though, because she did excel past them so quickly. She's had a rather lonely childhood...
Weapon: She has her staff/hang-glider thing... and a couple boomerangs that are smaller than Sokka's boomerang. She prefers airbending, though. XD
Other: She actually has a pet Iguana Parrot that her uncle gave her (her uncle is her father's brother and is an earthbender in the Earth Kingdom) when she got her tattoos (basically when she was 10). She named it Myrr. :)
