Novai



Novai paced his throne room, perspiring as the temperature rose, whenever he had felt stressed he would leak out excess heat, and right now, the room was on fire. He turned his head and glanced at the flames, they moved wherever there was something to feed it, an almost resolute desire. It was nigh 4 - 5 months since he had last shown his face to the public or to his people, the world outside was of no concern, he was drawing up plans to purify the colonies.

Ever since his departure rumors leaked to him of a new avatar, and that many new officers were appointed in the Fire Nation Army. The populous was sprawling and the economy was thriving, however, Novai wished to meet the outside world... the new people, technology, whatnot... were all waiting. The news more than it did to inspire him, made him weary and cautious, the move he was about to take was a dangerous one, but it was necessary. Novai drew up the map of the world, eyeing the Western Air Temples with apprehension, the colonies that were given to the Fire Nation after the war with the Earth Kingdom were distant, and the Earth Kingdom Navy was always watchful, being stationed on the Air Nomad island, and near the border of the colonies. In order to preserve the colonies, and to expand the empire Novai wanted to incorporate the Air Nomad islands, to make them into trading ports and military naval bases. This would give Novai a navy position to the north, and the colonies would be secure from Earth Kingdom encroachment.

For now, Novai moved slowly and carefully, his every action would be of utmost importance. He wrote two letters, one towards the Naval Fleet Commander stationed at the Boiling Rock, and the other addressed to the Internal War Minister.
The Naval Fleet was to dock their naval vessels dangerously close to the coast of the Western Air Temple, while the minister was to suspend recreational economic liberties and transfer them to the invasion effort.

Hopefully the chain of islands would be conquered in a few weeks, without the Avatar, whom his spies described as spontaneous, from noticing.

The sound of feet rushing right and left, orders being barked from here to there. From the outside looking in all chaos had broken loose and their might have been some invasion about to take place; part of that was correct. Their was an invasion about to take place, but not here in the Fire Nation. Outside lands to boost fortification seemed to be the target of the Fire Lord and the necessary preparations were being made to make that order into a reality. It had been quite some time since an offensive had taken place, and for most of the soldiers it was a bit of a surprise given the relative peace shared by the entire world for however long. But this was the life of an infantry-man, to be ever ready and willing to serve.

Tensei had been mulling about when the order came through via messenger, with an order to meet with the Fire Lord himself. The soldier had only been addressed by Novai once before when their swearing in ceremony took place, though it took place with a host of other soldiers. For a Captain this was a bit of a surprise, as the pecking order didn't normally have a man of that rank meeting with the head honcho in charge one on one. To say stranger things had happened would be a lie, and thus it would become a memory of life time even before it had taken place. With his full military garb adorned, minus the helmet of course, the soldier made his way throughout the large palace until he reached the doors outside of the main meeting room. He could feel the heat radiating from the other side of the door. From what he had heard, flames danced around the seat of the Fire Lord, but surely he had to have been sitting at the back of the room; but to feel them from outside of the room was outstanding. Perhaps planning an invasion put an inhuman amount of stress on even Novai himself. However, none had halted Tensei throughout his trek so it must have been somewhat safe to enter.

Two knocks came before the young man pushed open the large doors leading into the room. With his head bowed in reverence Tensei made his way about halfway through the large space before stopping and bending to a knee. "Here at your request, Fire Lord." The man stated, awaiting a response, but more importantly orders from the exalted one. Chances were slim that simple that a meeting would have been to just give simple orders to a lowly captain. No, Tensei felt that there was much more much to this than random happenstance.

Novai



As the last two messages were sent out, Novai was finally able to get some down time, for the past 2 - 3 months he had hoped that the outside world wouldn't notice his clandestine expeditions, but now they would all be uncovered. Maneuvering himself towards the throne, he looked back as the infantry sergeant he had asked for entered.

"Here are your request, Firelord"

"Ah, I'm glad you came, Sergeant Tensei, I've been reading the military reports from your latest expeditions, and I've got to say, I'm quite impressed."

Thoughts raced across Novai's mind, this infantry soldier was surely one of the finest, the military was becoming flabby and flimsy sitting around playing cards or just patrol duties along the borders. It was time to put Fire Nation strength to the test, but he wanted to make it seem as though the Fire Nation did not start it, and for this specific task, he needed Sergeant Tensei.

"About the recent events, all the hustle and bustle in the last 48 hours, were mobilizing again, practicing naval military tests off the coast of the Western Air Temple. For the military I need someone who has shown the kind of bravery you have, Tensei."

An awkward mixture of elation and worry filled the soldier as he processed the praise given to him by Novai. He didn't think his exploits were of higher merit than any other soldier in the military, but it seemed the Fire Lord thought otherwise. However, any number of certificates or medals could have been given to get across the same message without wasting Novai's precious time, which once again hinted towards a larger goal for this meeting.

"Thank you, sir. Just doing my part for the nation is all." The soldier replied, a small smile running across his face but with his head still bowed he would be the only one to take note of it. What he heard next was no new news, every member of the military had been racing around for the past two days preparing for some kind of event that all could speculate on, but only a few actually knew of. What Tensei was surprised to hear, however, was that the object of their offensive was the Western Air Temple. Interesting places they were, often perched atop some dangerous mountaintop only accessible to those who could bend the very air to their will. In the end though these were simple practice exercises in an effort to gauge how certain situations would play out should actual measures be taken, nothing more nothing less.

"The Western Air Temple... I am at your command, Firelord." Tensei replied, eager to receive his new orders. It had been quite some time since the soldier had left the mainland, and though expansive trips across a vast ocean weren't necessarily ideal for a firebender, the chances of running into trouble seemed slim at best.

Novai



Novai shuffled around some papers, moving them back and forth for a while, then began to sign the promotion form. A soldier who has seen bloodshed, violence, action, courage, and bravery deserves more than just a paper of promotion. This, however was the best that Novai could do. He was hesitant to place command of the army in this young man's hands but it was the only way that the operation would be successful.


"Your dedication and bravery, towards the Fire Nation's cause has earned you more than just medals and badges. You've seen a plethora more than what I have seen in my lifetime, moreover I sincerely hope that you accept this promotion to General. This special invasion will not be spearheaded by me or any other high ranking official, I want to test your abilities out in the open with this invasion."

The heat in the room seemed more intense than when Tensei had first arrived, any mositure in the air being devoured by the flames. The air became thick, breathes difficult to come by. If the soldier didn't know any better, one might have thought the room had begun to spin. Surely this must have been some kind of ruse, a stress test, something out of the ordinary. No, this was really happening; the twenty year old being promoted to General, and spearheading the invasion. Though words would not be able to describe his elation and gratitude on this occasion, the soldier would have to mutter something else before Novai thought he had died where he kneeled.

"Thank you, Fire Lord. I will not disappoint." He replied, feeling it best to keep a reply short and to the point rather than risking prattling on like a schoolgirl. Instead of just a platoon to lead, Tensei now had to preside over the entire invading force; an immeasurable difference. However, this was the chance he had already waited for, to be put in a position of power so that his style of leadership could be spread. Nothing mutinous of course, the boy wasn't stupid. Instead, a more humane approach to things would be utilized, and if that were to fail the old methods seemed to work wonders for all these years.

"Any further instructions, my Lord?" The now-General asked, various thoughts racing through his mind on just how exactly he would begin to command an entire invasion fleet. The time for that would come soon, though after anything Novai had left to say.
