Avatar Korra was born and raised in the Southern Water Tribe, and is the immediate successor of Avatar Aang. She is a gifted and powerful bender. After she had already fully mastered waterbending, earthbending, and firebending,[2] Korra moved to Republic City to learn airbending under the tutelage of Tenzin and help her aversion to the spiritual side of bending. With the assistance of Aang's spirit, Korra gained the ability of energybending and to go into the Avatar State.[3]

History Edit

Early life Edit

Young Korra waterbending

Four-year-old Korra proving herself as the Avatar.

Korra was born to Tonraq and Senna in the Southern Water Tribe, immediately following the death of Avatar Aang. At the age of four, she discovered that she was the Avatar, a fact she proudly announced to the Order of the White Lotus when they came on her family's request. After performing waterbending, earthbending, and firebending before them, her identity as the Avatar was established, and her training to become a fully realized Avatar began in earnest under the Order's watchful eye. Over the next thirteen years, Korra demonstrated a prodigious talent which allowed her to quickly master waterbending and earthbending, and by 170 ASC, her firebending training was almost complete. During her youth, she met and tamed a polar bear dog, whom she named Naga and who served as her animal companion.[4]
