.001 The Legend
When a child is born, they are not only checked to see if they are healthy, but on one of those tiny hands there will be a name written plainly to all who can see it.
That name, stitched across the hand of every individual, is the name of that certain someone's soul mate. That's all, just one name. Sure, it's helpful; you have a name, but just imagine if your soul mate's name happens to be 'Lee'. You can see where it can get confusing. People travel all over to find the face that matches the name. Sometimes they don't need to travel far, the person they are looking for is just down the street or across the town.
Some have a much harder time.
There are legends of heroes and kings launching missions to find their one true love. One such story, an Earth Kingdom king ordered his soldiers to find anyone with the name Lin. His soldiers brought back hundreds of people and still the king could not find his Lin. He then set off to find his soul mate by traveling not just the Earth Kingdom, but the other nations as well. He found Lin in the Fire Nation; she was a potter's daughter who had moved with her father when he decided to travel to the Fire Nation just days before the king launched his 'Lin Mission'. You can imagine that they lived happily ever after.
Such tales inspire those all around them, to find their fateful love and to bring happiness to themselves. A love story such as this happens everyday if the participants are willing to go searching.
