By 99 AG, the Southern Water Tribe was on the brink of extinction, with its culture shattered, its main city largely abandoned, and its unique waterbending style effectively erased.
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.
Katara is a waterbending master, born in the Southern Water Tribe to Chief Hakoda and his wife Kya. She became Aang’s waterbending instructor after their departure from the Northern Water Tribe, replacing Master Pakku, who had instructed them during their time there.
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.
The raids appeared to be a victory for the Fire Nation with the death of Kya, who was thought to be the last waterbender. However, Kya had lied about her identity in order to safeguard her daughter Katara, the last true waterbender of the Southern Water Tribe.
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.
The original creator confirmed that and confirmed the direct locations. The Fire Nation is Japanese, the Earth Kingdom is chinese, the air nomads are tibetan, and the water tribes are inuit.
As frustrating as it is, the general consensus is that Sokka died of old age and natural causes between age 70 and 85. We first even learn about Sokka’s fate in the series sequel, The Legend of Korra (which you can watch on Amazon Prime, YouTube, and Google Play), when Katara says that he’s passed away.
Chief of the Northern and Southern Water Tribes, Tonraq’s younger brother, and Korra’s uncle, Unalaq is a solemn man carrying a lot of responsibility.
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.
He married Pema – a non-bender – and had four children with her from which all were air-benders – Jinora, Ikki, Meelo, Rohan. This guy is puzzling case. You would think that he married Sukki, right?
One of the most persistent mysteries that has bedeviled the Avatar fandom since the release of The Legend of Korra centers around the parentage of Toph’s children. In the years between The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, Toph never married — but she did have two daughters from two different fathers.
The biological age difference between Aang and Katara is two years; Aang was biologically 12 years old when he met Katara, who was 14 at the time.
