Korra learns about the epic and mythic origins of the first Avatar.

While being healed by the Fire Sages, Korra explores her past lives and meets Wan, the first Avatar, who lived 10,000 years ago. Living in a time where humans lived on the shells of lion turtles to protect themselves from the spirits, Wan and his friends live in poverty and hunger. One day, Wan steals the power of firebending, but is banished for it after stealing food from the local tyrant to feed his friends. After learning to survive in the treacherous jungles, Wan befriends the spirits living there. Two years later, when Wan begins traveling the mainland, he encounters two powerful spirits battling each other. After being tricked by one of the spirits, Wan separates the two. While one spirit escapes, the other spirit, Raava, explains that she is the spirit of light and peace and that the spirit Wan had freed is Vaatu, the spirit of darkness and chaos. By freeing Vaatu, Wan has unwittingly let destruction and chaos into the world.
