OOC Plans: He'll begin his airbending training, and also shave his head, and thus change his appearance. Later on he will begin opening his chakras, which will culminate in the opening of his 7th chakra, after which he will attain True Flight.


He stands tall at 6'2, with a robust muscular build that didn't go away even during his forced vegeterian times at the Southern Air Temple. Sporting a bald shiny head, sunglasses and a dark brown vest, he now also wears beige pants, leather shoes and a gray-blue coat. His eyes move around often as he inspects a new enviroment.


Due to living in opposite enviroments, Akhilesh has a relatively complex personality. He is an inherently good person, believing not necessarily in the sacredness of all life as the Air Nomads do, but that all life deserves respect. Although mostly respecting the authority, he is willing to break it if it isultimately for the better. He attempts holds up to an 'honesty is the best policy' philosophy. He is very empathetic, yet able to control his own emotions most of the time. However, he has a weakness, which is the fact that his personality as a whole often succumbs to the pressure of outside factors, mostly people he thinks high of.


Born in the Mining village to Chaman, an earthbender coal trader and Sengemo, a non-bender Air Nomad. His father had high hopes for him becoming a master earthbender, a feat he himself was unable to achieve due to his own father's lack of support and egocentrism, which also forced him to earn his wealth without any help from his family. So Chaman decided to train his son in the ways of earthbending as soon as possible.

After years of rigorous training, young Akhilesh adapted to the eartbending style, but there was little actual bending power involved until he was one day able to blast off a rock. It took a while until his father noticed that he was actually airbending and not earthbending, which was rather disappointing for him. However, he soon set a new goal to make sure his soon reaches his full bending potential, no matter the bending art. This led to Akhilesh being sent to the Southern Air Temple to train.

Being 8 when he started the air-bender training, Akhilesh was initially unable to adapt to the new enviroment and way of life. He was able to only control the air blast for the first year of his training. However, after another 6 months, he was finally able to begin using other powers. This marked the begining of his true training period.

Through his training, Akhilesh was able to master the initial air-bending powers, and the negative jing, as well as perfect his neutral jing. However, as he had been told often, he was unable to fully reach his airbending potential due to his earth-bender style of fighting and thinking. So once he was 18, he went back to Mining village to train by himself, and attempting to find a different approach to airbending.

After many months of meditation and training, his 19th birthday came. Akhilesh told his parents that he has decided to join the Citizenship Project and move to Republic City. Although his parents initially were strongly against it, gradually they accepted his decision and helped him prepare for his journey.


Air Nomad
Initial Powers
  • Air Blast

The user sends a burst of air out in the shape of a ball in front of them which can be used offensively or defensively.

  • Air Shield

The user creates a funnel of air in front of them that redirects attacks around them.

  • Air Swipe

The user sends a sharp jet of air out in the shape of a crescent which can be used to cut things.

  • Enhanced Agility (Passive)

The user is naturally more agile than a normal human.

  • Gliding (Passive)

The user can glide across the air for a short period of time; this can be sustained for a medium amount of time by using a glider.

Basic Powers

(Note: Once a power is chosen, it cannot be changed.)

  • Air Strike

The user can attach a burst of wind to any physical attack with their arms or legs for added force. (Achieved after 1 week)

Wind Fighter

Initial Powers
  • Air Wake

The user can build up massive momentum while running which can then be focused into a powerful concussive blast. The user becomes disoriented for a short time after using this power.

  • Enhanced Speed (Passive)

The user is able to redirect air flow around them, removing air resistance and generating a wind current behind them, thus greatly increasing their running speed. (50-60 mph). The user cannot use the power to enhance the speed of their flight/gliding or jumping and they're vulnerable to fatigue and high-speed collision while running at these new speeds.

  • Air Blades (Exclusive to Wind Fighter)

The user can focus the air to a fine blade which can be used as a melee or projectile weapon for a short time. While wielding these blades, the user cannot use any other airbending techniques from their hands.

  • Air Slam (Exclusive to Wind Fighter)

The user can produce a gust of air to launch enemies upwards, followed by a downwards air current to slam them into the ground with increased force. The user becomes disoriented for a short time after using this power and they cannot use it from long distances.

Advanced Powers

(Note: Once a power is chosen, it cannot be changed. Also, Master level powers can only be achieved after 7 months and require 2 open power slots.)

  • Cloudbending (Passive)

The user is able to manipulate water vapor in order to move or create clouds which can be used to obscure sight.  (Achieved after 2 months)

  • Soundbending (Passive; requires 2 open slots)

The user is able to create and control sound waves by manipulating the air. With this power, they are able to create, distort or even remove sound within a large area around them. They are also able to send sonic bursts which can disorient or even cause pain to others; however, over use of these sonic bursts will cause the same effects on the user. NOTE: This power is illegal to use. (Achieved after 7 months)


  • Tessen (War fans)
Akhilesh bought these war fans in Honshi Street Market. Although he is not adept with using them as actual weapons, they are primarily served as an extension of his bending, especial the air swipe.
