|Faction Name||Earth Kingdom|
This sphere draws its strength and resilience from the element it manipulates: Earth. This is reflected in the nature of the people, who are as diverse as the landscapes, but united by their fortitude, perseverance and indomitable spirit. The culture mixes many traditions and practices from various states, each as vibrant and colorful as the kingdom itself. The people of the Earth Kingdom are known for their deep-rooted honor, strong sense of duty, unwavering patriotism, and devotion to their community.
The Earth Kingdom has produced many wonderful figures, from wise rulers to humble squires, each as charming and righteous as the kingdom they call home. The kingdom's uncompromising vibrancy and unflinching spirit perfectly align with its iconic motto: Stand Strong and Stand Tall. Indeed, the Earth Kingdom is a unique emblem of the enduring strength of society and the indomitable spirit of the Earth it represents.
The Earth Kingdom is the largest and most populous nation. Vast and extremely diverse, it stretches from the west coast of the eastern continent to the eastern coast of the western continent, connecting two land masses. Since ancient times, the history of the Earth Kingdom has been shaped by the element that humans have mastered: Earth. Its history traces back to the first inhabitants who learned the gift of earthbending from the Dasmollens, the first earthbenders. The naturally blind badgers used earthbending as an extension of their senses, which later became an important tool and weapon for humans.
Over the centuries, the kingdom split into many autonomous states, each with its own rulers. However, it remained largely single except during the reign of Fire Lord Sozin. Seeking to dominate all nations, Sozin started the Hundred Years' War, which tore the world of Earth apart. However, the Earth Kingdom has shown resilience to adversity through the courage and determination of the Earth visitors. It was the time of notable heroes such as King Bumi of Omashu, Toph Beifong, the blind prodigy, and Avatar Kyoshi. Each of them left an indelible mark and shaped the Kingdom's destiny.
After the Hundred Years' War, the Earth Kingdom began its journey towards reunification and peace under the leadership of Earth King Kuei. The rebuilding of the kingdom was a manifestation of the people's long-term resilience, tenacity and strong connection to the land. The Earth Kingdom carries the spirit of its element: resistant to adversity, slow to evolve and adapt, constantly seeking stability and prosperity. It's hard to say where the Earth Kingdom's story will lead, but it will undoubtedly be as strong as the rock that humans bend so expertly.
