Zaheer render by legendaryrey-d7wyzuo
Like all great children's tales, it contains truth within the myth. Laghima once wrote, 'instinct is a lie, told by a fearful body, hoping to be wrong.' It means when you base your expectations only on what you see, you blind yourself to the possibilities of a new reality.
~ Zaheer
It's the dawning of a new age. The end of the White Lotus, and soon... the end of the Avatar.
~ Zaheer


Zaheer is the leader of the Red Lotus, and an anarchist who seeks a new world without the White Lotus, the four nations, or the Avatar. He was also one of many individuals who became an airbender after the Harmonic Convergence in Book 2.
