Sokka was a Water Tribe warrior of the Southern Water Tribe and the son of Chief Hakoda and Kya.
One family of Southern descent in particular became infamous as leaders of the Fifth Nation, an ethnically mixed people of corsairs that roamed the seas for generations. The Southern Water Tribe eventually disowned the entire family tree of Tagaka, head of Fifth Nation at the time.
The Northern and Southern Water Tribes located at the world’s poles are based on Inuit Tribes, while the Foggy Swamp Tribe, located in the Earth Kingdom, is based on the people of the Mississippi River Delta.
It was stated that at some point in time, a portion of people left and started a new life in the South Pole (probably because of the weird societal rules the NP had). That’s why it’s so much smaller and that’s why the Moon and Ocean spirits were at the North Pole instead.
So, Sokka died sometime between 158 and 170 AG, and the cause of death is believed to be natural, as he would’ve been between 74-86 years old. The lack of concrete information on Sokka’s death is the direct result of his limited role in The Legend of Korra.
MAI. Mai is Zuko’s most consistent romantic interest. One of Azula’s only friends, she accompanies Azula on her hunt for Zuko and Iroh. She eventually helps bring down the Earth Kingdom and, when Zuko is given the credit for Aang’s defeat, is able to fully enter a relationship with the restored prince.
The water tribe originally descended from a lion turtle that was in a tropical area. That is why they are dark. They must have lived close and used the portal to travel prior to the first harmonic convergence we see. They did not realize that avatar Juan was going to close the portal.
Hope I made you proud. Bumi is Avatar Aang and Katara’s first child and eldest son, as well as the only one to be born a nonbender among the couple’s three children; he later developed airbending abilities after the Harmonic Convergence of 171 AG.
Being frozen in an iceberg for 100 years while in the Avatar State drained much of Aang’s life energy. Ultimately, it resulted in Aang dying at the relatively young biological age of 66 since he was in the ice for 100 years, in 153 AG.
Each new Avatar’s primary bending style goes in the order fire-air-water-earth before beginning anew. This means the next Avatar will be an earthbender. The reason for this seemingly random ordering can be traced back to the very first Avatar, Wan.
Korra is not biologically related to Tenzin. Korra’s father is Tonraq, who was part of the ruling family of the Northern Water Tribe. Tenzin is the son of Avatar Aang and Katara. Aang was an Air Nomad, so he has no relation to Korra, and Katara does not seem to have any familial relationship to Senna.

For instance, Katara and Sokka have darker skin than Aang. Typically, members of the water tribes had darker skin. Some of the citizens of the Earth Kingdom also were of a darker complexion. If you’re looking for dark skinned characters you will have to settle for the Eskimos living in the North and South Pole.
Katara, born and raised in the Southern Water Tribe by her grandmother, Kanna, alongside her older brother Sokka, and is the daughter of Chief Hakoda and Kya. During her childhood, Katara was the last native of the South Pole still living there who was capable of waterbending.
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. Rather than ask for help, Korra isolates herself for three years.
