Character Name: Acai
Bender Type: Firebender
Age: just turned 13
Acai is a girl who, even though she is kind hearted, has very severe anger issuses. She is easily annoyed and will not back down from a fight. She argues a lot and almost always wins. She is fierce but kind to people she knows. She is a bit sarcastic and has an attitude. She is also quite intelligent.
Acai was born on a cold windy day in a small hut in the Fire Nation. She had an adopted older brother called Li. He looked like an average 5 year old Water Tribe boy, with average length black hair, average blue eyes, average height and average weight. On the inside however ,he was far from average. He was extremely smart and understood things quicker than most adults. He played lots of different instruments. Even though they were very different, the two were inseperable.
A few months after her fifth birthday, Acai's little sister Kaya was born. At that point, Acai almost gave up hope of being a bender, not only because both of her parents were non-benders, but also because all of her friends and older friends had started bending. To make it seem less embarassing she asked her best friend, who already knew how to bend, to help her and make it seem like she was bending. What she didn't know was that it wasn't her friend, but she was doing it herself, overpowering what her friend did.
From the point Acai turned 5 and a half, Li kept telling her to leave home. Of course she never listened and stayed at home.
On her sixth birthday, the house caught fire. Once she smelled the smoke, she ran over to her brother who then gave her the sword she still has now for protection if they wouldn't see eachother again. They said their goodbyes as he jumped out of the window and sprinted off. She didn't see him again for 3 years. She raced over to her sister who she picked up. When she wanted to leave the room, the door was blocked with fire.
She heard her parents screams of agony and started crying in fear of death, but she thought if would be better for her to run through the fire to the door than die without trying to live. As she ran, the fire parted to make a safe path. She found the nearest orphanage and they stayed there for 3 years.
After a while a woman from the Earth Republic called Yi came to the orphanage hoping to adopt a child to keep her son company. When she first met Acai, she knew she wanted to adopt her. When Yi asked, Acai said she wouldn't go unless Kaya came too. The two were adopted and lived in the Earth Republic. When they saw their new brother, Acai recognized him immediatly and embraced him, but then slapped him for leaving them.
They found out that Kaya was a Firebender and she joined their homeschooling sessions. In their sessions they would do normal school lessons and bending practices to which they would invite multiple friends to. After their "school" finished, they would do different activites like archery, martial arts and fencing. Although they did these, they never became masters, they just did it for fun.
After a year of the sessions they went to a school nearby. On the first day in the new school, the boys would come up to her and tease her. She continued walking until one of the boys tripped her. She fell flat on her face and felt rage building up in her. She tried to surpress her rage but it only slowed down. The boy then said:"Cry, little baby girl, whatcha gonna do about it?" She couldn't control herself anymore. She saw red, felt tears running down her face and shot fire at the smirking boy who stumbled back and landed on the floor bawling. She cowered in fear of what she had done and was sent to the principals office. The principal then sent her home and found someone who could help with her anger issues. After a while, they lessened and lessened but never ceased to exist.
On her 13th birthday, for a present she was told by her mother she could go to Republic City to live with her brother who had moved there just over a year before. Not only because of that, it was also because she wanted to experience something new.
The reason the house burned down was because the parents were outlaws who murdered Li's parents when he was one. Since they couldn't kill the boy because he was too adorable, they brought him to an orphanage and adopted him 3 years later. When Li was 8, he found out he could bend and joined the Delta Squad, a group of children containing 2 nonbenders and one bender of each element that would attempt to protect the village. They would meet up every evening. When Li turned 11, the parents finally revealed what had happened to his parents, thinking that he would forgive them because they had raised him for 7 years. Of course he didn't and plotted to kill them with his friends in the Delta Squad. Since he loved his sisters he told them to leave but they didn't listen. On Acai's birthday, as he knew she was a firebender as her friend had told him, his plan took action. His firebender friend set fire to the house. He knew his sisters would survive, but he was scared they would find out and hate him, so he ran. He met up with the rest of the Delta Squad and they left so that nobody would know.
