Jake is paraplegic marine on a deadly alien world set in the future.
Jake replaces his twin brother in the Avatar program and travels to another planet
There’s no true refusal from Jake, he simply begrudgingly accepts his lot in life. The refusal is flipped onto his Mentor Grace, who thinks it’s a terrible idea using a marine instead of scientist but is forced into accepting the situation because the military and the corporation are funding her operation
Grace becomes his mentor and gives him his Avatar, opening whole new world for him.
Whilst on a scientific expedition into the forest, Jake becomes separated from the group when he has to escape from the Thanator
Jake is being hunted by animals, cornered and near death before he is rescued by Neytiri
Jake must learn the ways of the Na’vi. How to hunt, how to ride, how to capture his own Banshee
Even though the actual Goddess on this planet is the Ewya, Neytiri is the Goddess who motivates Jake to become a hero “If you are one of us, help us.”
Quaritch offers Jake a chance to get his real legs back, however in order to get he must betray his new people.
Grace is wounded during the escape and she cannot be saved
Jake understands the Na’vi people and their connection to the world around them. He prays to Eywa to help them in their upcoming battle.
Jake captures the Toruk Makto. This elevates him to a God like status.
Jake becomes the leader of the Na’vi and rallies them to fight against the human invasion. Here he has completely integrated into his new people
Jake leads the Na’vi in a battle against the humans.
The battle appears lost but Eywa sends in her own army of the planet’s creatures and they tear through the soldiers.
Jake and Neytiri fight the final battle against Quaritch
Jake is about to be killed by Quaritch when Neytiri shoots him with her arrows
Neytiri sees Jake for the first time in his human form and breaking the barrier between the Na’vi and the human world for them.
They send the Humans back to their own world.
Jake’s eyes open from inside his Avatar.
There are two final battles in this story, the first is humans versus Na’vi on a massive scale but then a second battle more personal battle between Protagonist and the Antagonist. This gives a more satisfying ending rather than Quaritch just dying randomly in some explosion in the sky.
