Takumi is a master firebender, famed for his achievement of being able to bend blue fire; an achievment only reached by one before him, Princess Azula of the Fire Nation. His skill with firebending earned him the epithet Ryuu of the Azure Flame. He trained in the Order of the White Lotus, where he took on the role of tracking, hunting and capturing dangerous benders. After several years he took a leave of abscence after the leader of his chapter told him not to get involved in a local conflict, because their work must remain focused on benders not just any old chaos.
Shortly after leaving the order Takumi caught onto a trail of suspicious disappearances, all marked with the symbol of the Red Orchid. Using the skills he learned in sevice to the White Lotus he begins his search for the cuprits.
Takumi is a dark haired young man in his early twenties; who due to being an active bender and hunter of benders is extremely physically fit. The majority of the time Takumi dresses in form fitting flexible clothing; 3/4 sleeeve shirts, close cut trousers and calf length boots. Around his neck he wears a White Lotus tile strung on a piece of short string.
Having lived his entire life in the pursuit of mastery of firebending and hunting evil benders, Takumi is extremely focused and has few skills outside of bending, hunting and combat.
Takumi is a passionate man, who controls his feelings protraying a cool headed man who is at peace with himself. He cares deeply about helping those less fortunate than himself and regularly jumps in to rescue people without being asked.
Takumi has a fiercely independent streak and seek not to rely on others wherever possible. Sometimes to the point of seeming arrogant or uncaring.
He does not care for fame feeling that it is a useless idea and pays little attention to the pursuits of others unless they are truly exceptional.
As demonstrated by his departure from The Order of the White Lotus Takumi does not much care for rules, especially when he feels that they hinder his ability to make independent judgements or take independent action.
He likes to work and think in an organized logical fashion as he feels that his methodolgy is the most efficient and allows him to use his skills to the fullest extent.
Terra is a master earthbender and metal bender.
Takumi worked for the Order of the White Lotus
Firebending, one of the four elemental bending arts, is the pyrokinetic ability to control fire. It is unique among the bending arts, as it is the only one in which the performer can spontaneously generate the element.
Certain powerful firebenders are able to generate and manipulate lightning by separating the yin and yang energies. Lightning, also known as "the cold-blooded fire", is considered the most powerful firebending technique, and its use was available only to a select few firebending prodigies and masters. However, seventy years later, the art has evolved to a well-known skill and is known by enough people to make lightning generation a decently-paid job at a power plant in Republic City.
Takumi's most guarded skill is his Combustion bending. A skill he learned from the observation of P'Li and study of the ancient scrolls possessed by the White Lotus. Unlike P'Li and the Combustion man who preceeded her Takumi releases his blast from the Sound Chakra in the Throat instead of the Light Chakra in the Forehead. This power of breathing the beam of concentrated to cause the explosions gave him the title of Ryuu of the Azure Flame, commonly misunderstood to just be his own surname. He does not use this technique very often, saving it for only the most dire life threatening circumstances. This being because those who came before him became reliant on the technique and predictable in combat.
Chi Blocking is an ancient technique that has been practiced in secret for centuries. Blocking someone's chi renders the victim's muscles useless and temporarily disables a bender's abilities. In his profession as a hunter for the White Lotus, Takumi travelled regularly with Chi Blockers. He quickly discovered that somethimes not using bending was more effective and less damaging than goes head to head in a battle of bending, so he learned the skill from his companions adding the skill to his bending making him an even more difficult opponent to face.
Despite to Takumi's direct attack power he has become a great tactician in order to survive in difficult combat arenas. His greatest skill being the rapid assessment of an opponent's stengths and weaknesses in order to form an effective strategy.
During his time with the White Lotus Takumi proved himself to be an excellent tracker and hunter of men. Capable of out thinking his prey and knowing where they would go before they did.
