Korra (Female, Avatar)
Korra is a Waterbender with a fiery personality. She’s an athletic, confident, headstrong girl who fully accepts and relishes her role as “The Chosen One.” Korra has mastered water, earth and firebending, but has yet to conquer airbending. She believes that being a powerful bender is all that it takes to be a great Avatar. However, Korra has much to learn when it comes to the spiritual side of life. Her lack of spiritual development is one of the reasons Korra has been unable to overcome her airbending block.
Mako (Male, Firebender)
Tall, lean, and handsome, Mako is one of the top players in the Pro-bending Arena and captain of the up-and-coming team, the Fire Ferrets. He is a powerful, focused and technical fighter. Mako was forced to take on adult responsibilities at a young age and often used his firebending to protect himself and his brother, Bolin, while living on the streets of Republic City. One day, Toza, a former Pro-bender, discovered Mako fighting on the streets and invited the two brothers to live in a room in the attic of the arena and work odd jobs to pay rent, which allows them to focus on Pro-bending.
Bolin (Male, Earthbender)
Bolin is expressive, high-spirited, and enthusiastic. Physically, he is stocky and muscular. He has a great sense of humor and is really comfortable in his own skin. Unlike his brother Mako, he’s an easy-going optimist who never seems to be in a bad mood. Bolin plays in the Pro-bending Arena alongside his brother and enjoys all the attention from his girl fans, although he is still a novice in the world of dating. For all their differences, the brothers share an intense bond and are fiercely loyal to each other.
Tenzin (Male, Airbender)
Tenzin is the youngest of Aang and Katara’s three children, and the only Airbender among them. He serves on the United Republic Council as the representative for the Air Nation, and takes his role in the leadership of Republic City very seriously. Tenzin is a traditionalist who works hard to protect and transmit Air Nomad teachings and culture. He embodies the peaceful, calm, spiritual nature of the Air Nomads. As Korra’s airbending teacher and mentor in her spiritual development, Tenzin has difficulty getting through to her because they are complete opposites: whereas she is unorthodox, impatient, and forceful, he is traditional, patient, and gentle.
Amon (Male, non-bender)
Little is known about Amon, the mysterious leader of the anti-bending revolution. He wears a mask to conceal his face. He is a nimble, stealthy fighter who shows no fear even against the highest-level bender. Amon’s ultimate goal is to create equality by ridding the world of bending.
The Lieutenant (Male, non-bender)
Amon’s second-in-command, The Lieutenant, is an intense, disciplined fighter who augments his amazing skills with two electrified kali sticks. No Metalbender cop can withstand his attack.
Chief Lin Beifong (Female, Earthbender/Metalbender)
Chief Lin Beifong is the tough, uncompromising daughter of Toph and the head of Republic City’s Metalbender police force. She sees Korra’s arrival as a threat – both to her authority and to the rule of law she’s worked so hard to enforce. She believes the only way to maintain peace and stability in the city is through the use of military might.
Hiroshi Sato (Male, non-bender)
A barrel-chested businessman with a big personality, Hiroshi Sato’s family lineage extends back to the first Fire Nation colonists. He was born to a poor family from the Dragon Flats district. A kid with big dreams, Hiroshi worked from a very young age to help support his family. When he was 18, he convinced a wealthy banker to invest in the idea of automobiles for the common man. Before long, he was churning out Satomobiles in his first Future Industries factory. By the time he was 25, the ingenious industrialist had made his first million yuans.
Asami Sato (Female, non-bender)
As the daughter of Hiroshi Sato, Asami has lived a life of luxury but don’t let her fancy clothes and polite manners fool you — Asami has a tough side too. She’s an expert driver and isn’t afraid to mix it up on the racetrack. Asami has also had the best self-defense training money can buy. She’s a big fan of Pro-bending and goes to every match.
Katara (Female, Waterbender)
Many years have passed since her adventures in the original series, but the wise and maternal Katara understands the demands put upon the Avatar and does her best to support Korra at all times. Not only is she Korra’s waterbending teacher, but her son Tenzin, is Korra’s airbending teacher.
