After the death of Aang, Korra is born among the Southern Water Tribe, her bending abilities over Water, Earth and Fire manifesting by age 4.
Korra was born in the Southern Water Tribe, and the Order of the White Lotus confirmed that she was the Avatar at a young age. After completing her firebending training, she moved to Republic City to train under Tenzin, Aang, and Katara’s son.
In 153 AG, the next Avatar in the cycle, Korra, was born in the Southern Water Tribe. A large compound was built for her to train under the Order of the White Lotus in waterbending, earthbending, and firebending. In 170 AG, Avatar Korra left the compound and the Southern Water Tribe to help the world.
An important distinction to make is that the Water Tribes in Avatar aren’t Inuit. Comparing the show to say, Moana: in Moana, the people are clearly a Polynesian nation. It’s a fictionalized Polynesian nation, but they are definitely Polynesian.
The way it worked is that the Water Tribes were led by a Royal Family situated in the North. Anyway – Korra is not a princess, but she is of royal blood.
Katara is a waterbending master, born in the Southern Water Tribe to Chief Hakoda and his wife Kya. In need of a waterbending master, the siblings and Aang left the South Pole on a journey toward the Northern Water Tribe.
Hama happened to be the last Waterbender standing in the Southern Water Tribe, until Katara was born. However, Katara’s mother wasn’t a Waterbender. As Hama explains to Katara in “The Puppetmaster,” she was able to escape her imprisonment because she developed the sub-bending style known as bloodbending.
So when Yue left this world, her father would have had to pass the chieftanship to one of his nephews or something, one of Yue’s cousins. This man would have been Tonraq’s father, Korra’s grandfather, which makes Yue and Korra first cousins twice removed. Korra is a distant cousin OF THE MOON.
Arnook was the chief of the Northern Water Tribe during the final stages of the Hundred Year War. He was born and raised in the North Pole, where he trained as a warrior.
Tonraq is a waterbending master born in the Northern Water Tribe and the first child of Barruk and Hirri. His father Barruk is a high ranking military general and close friend of the Northern Water Tribe Chief Nurro, therefor Tonraq grew up with a prestigious lifestyle (which only fuelled his arrogance).
Korra is not Black — Water Tribe members are based in part on Intuit cultures —but Black women can see so much of their struggle in how she moves through the world.
Sandbenders might be mongolic, Original Firebenders Aztec, Fire Nation more Tang Dynasty, Air nomads Shaolin monks or perhaps tibetan, and the Water Tribes Inuit/Siberian. The United Republic would be a diverse East Asian country.
Sokka is one of the few members in Team Avatar to seemingly have no children, so it’s unclear if he ever was (or stayed) romantic with anyone. As far as fans know, he was last seen with Suki, the pairing had yet to break up.
Early life. Tonraq was born in the Northern Water Tribe to the chief of the Water Tribes, hailing from a long line of chiefs. He later became the older brother of Unalaq.
