Rikkar is ambitious and proud, desiring to attain a level of mastery over water-bending on par with the Avatar as his goal in life. He maintains a detached and serious persona, choosing to display a stoic resolve to assist in his sole pursuit of knowledge and the mastery of his bending. This does not mean he is without emotion, which he carefully guards and does possess a desire to help others, which led to him becoming a water-bender teacher. He is quick to anger and slow to laugh, though he is capable of forgiveness after a time. The hurt and harm of innocent beings can move him to sadness (though he'd never admit it).Background ||
Rikkar was born and raised entirely in Republic City within a middle-class family, to a water-bending father and a fire-bending mother. His parents enjoyed a storybook romance, being from two opposing spectrums that eventually overcame the barriers and obstacles inherent to their cultures. Growing up, his parents never ceased to display their tenderness with each other despite the stigma attached to their union, which resulted in Rikkar adhering away from such displays of affection as he wished to avoid the criticism of others. Because of this, he remained a solitary and quiet child growing up, attending a decent schooling within the city.
Taking after his father, a Water-Bender from the Northern Tribe who arrived in the City for work in the factories, Rikkar developed a skill for water-bending at an early age. He often employed this as a child, honing his skills not by his father or a teacher, but through various fights and bouts with fellow students in school. This led to an early suspension due to his various transgressions and repeated offenses, not to mention repeated forays into the underworld to participate in the illegal tournaments. As a response, from the age of fourteen to twenty, his father sent Rikkar to live with his relatives at the North Pole, where he was instructed quite firmly and harshly by the Water Bender masters there. Their disciplinary approach was severe and challenging, which created an environment Rikkar could thrive in despite his loss of social interactions and interpersonal skills. He excelled at his training, earning the respect of the Northern Water Tribe masters despite his less conservative demeanor towards water-bending, choosing to use it as both a weapon and a tool for healing.
With the acknowledgements of the Masters of the Northern Water Tribe under his belt, Rikkar returned to Republic City after nearly a decade away, now influenced by traditional values of his father's people, he tries to maintain a steady balance with the more modernized lifestyle in the city and his desire of martial competition, winning his first tournament in his first year back. With his father's growing afflictions and weakness with age, Rikkar however took it upon himself to abandon his martial pursuits in an attempt to maintain the family wealth. He did not desire to work in a factory such as his parents did, disdaining the cramp worked spaces and conditions. Instead, he choose to apply at the local Bending School, where he might share his vast knowledge with others, propagating his repute, while at the same time hoping to find an upcoming and worthy student that might one day rival his own skills, to which he can test his full powers and capabilities against. Rikkar now teaches Advanced Water-Bending at the school, being employed there for two years.
Dragged to Pro-Bending matches by his fangirl of a sister, Rikkar has come to admire the prowess of some of the competitors, though he refuses to participate in any way himself as he see's himself above it as a teacher. He has however a dark past of wandering into the Underworld side of Republic City, where once a competitor in the underground tournaments, now he bets on illegal fighting between benders and is even reputed to still participate himself...Appearance ||

After the manner of his fatherís people, Rikkar has taken to wear the Water Tribe attire, with a blue tunic lined with fur atop blue breeches tucked into fur-lined boots. He wears a belt around his waist, which carries a quick bundle of water in case itís needed for a fight. He is quite tall, with hair reaching down to his knees. Pet ||

Fire-Bender. Occupation ||
Younger sister to Rikkar.Skills ||
Harpist, can use fire-bending to create harmless, coloured smoke.Personality ||
Unlike her older brother, Kati is generally easy going, though she can have a serious streak. She tends to possess more of her parentís affections than Rikkar, almost constantly smiling and cheerful. However, she is quite spoiled, never having had to work for anything beyond house chores and being given plenty of praise and love by her parents, in lieu of their first born being a problematic child. She can rarely be offended and loves to banter, though she lacks in competition. Insulting or swearing at her can easily reduce her to tears and fright, though in defence of others she can quickly find her backbone. She is quite clumsy, being a daydreamer, always living in her head and rarely paying attention to whatís in front of her. She idolizes Pro-Benders, wishing to possess their confidence and skill.Background ||
Kati was born in Republic City to a middle class family, her father being a Northern Tribe water-bender while her mother is a fire-bending immigrant from the Fire Islands. She takes after her mother, having developed fire-bending abilities from a young age. She has had some uncontrollable outbursts with her abilities, having had one near incident in her youth where in a nightmarish dream she nearly set fire to the family house. Despite it being an accident, with no blame placed upon her, Kati has long shied away from utilizing her powers, much in contrast to her brother who seeks to employ it whenever he can. For a time after this incident, she was solitary and self-exilic, confining herself indoors though she did not become guarded and emotionally aloof like her brother.
During her teenage years, she blossomed into a beautiful young woman, though still hesitant to employ her fire-bending skills or develop her sexuality. Instead she took an interest in culture and music, abandoning her fire-bending for a time to learn how to play the harp and attend music school during her formative years. This allowed her to become quite apt with her fingers, which she adores and protects as if it were gold, wearing gloves to keep them clean and free from harm or injury.
Her parents, despite her older brotherís determination to develop his powers and the trouble it brought, still encouraged her to learn bending under a proper teacher. However, her clumsiness quickly found her a pariah to most private tutors and masters, having suffered enough scorched walls, singed curtains, and near-misses with the building being burned down. She tended to lean towards less actual fire bending and more of the secondary uses of it, such as creating smoke or other playful gestures since she is too afraid to utilize a full flame. Despairing at last, her parents decided to enroll Kati in a public Bending school, hoping one of the many expert teachers would help train the clumsy girl into a disciplined user, not for combat, but for practical use. Her parents have no wish for her to become a fighter, but understand her powers and hope for her to have some measure of control over her fire-bending.
Kati on the other hand only dreams of music and finding romance in the fashion her parents did. She is disdained by her brother for this, often leading to him bullying her at times.Appearance ||
See picture. Like her parents and brother, Kati is a woman of modest height, though a full head shorter than her brother Rikkar. She keeps her copper hair (a mix of her mother and fatherís) short and shoulder length and has a brighter shade of sandy, olive complexion for skin. Her eyes are wide and of a bright amber hue, which stems from her motherís side. She has an athletic build, though more of a dancerís physique then the bulky frame her brother has developed with his martial prowess.Pet ||
