Campaign of the Month: November 2011
Avatar: Conquest of the Imperial Order
Intelligent, Brutal, Narrow Minded, Unyielding
Jagang is a stout man of average height with massive arms and chest. His head is shaved bald, increasing his already imposing appearance. Jagang’s neck IS thick and often described as resembling that of a bull’s. Although many view Jagang as a crude barbarian, he has a very shrewd and sharp intellect. He is adept and knowledgeable in military tactics and maneuvers as well as an exceptionally powerful firebender. He is also very adept in poisoning common people’s minds into serving him. Jagang does not care about his men as long as they are loyal and served him to their dying breath.
As the protégé of the founder and spiritual leader of the Fellowship of the Imperial Order, Brother Narev, Jagang is a firm believer that mankind was evil and that people should bend to the will of others in need, no matter the cost to themselves. For example, if a man had an urge for a woman, in Jagang’s view, it is the womans duty to allow him to exercise those urges. The obvious question of the man logically considering the woman’s needs never crossed the emperor’s mind.
As a young boy Jagang was nothing more than a street thug living in alleys of Altur’Rang, the capital of what will later be known as the fire nation. One day he saw a wealthy looking man and decided to kill him and take his money. The man turned to him and simply smiled, knowing he could kill the boy with little trouble, for he was a powerful firebender. Instead, he flicked the boy a coin and was on his way. Jagang had several encounters with the same man, before one day, he finally asked why the man hadn’t killed him.
Brother Narev, as the man was called, told Jagang of the philosophies of the Fellowship of Order and took him as his protege, possibly seeing the hidden talent of a dream walker within Jagang, teaching him everything he knew, eventually placing him as the Emperor of the entire Imperial Order, while Narev himself became the spiritual leader of the Order.
As Jagang’s mastery of his own firebending talents grew, he used his talents to bring all the sovereign tribes under his banner, all except the Dragons of the White Lotus at the very southern most end of the continent.
