Korra has strong relationships with the family of her previous life: Having learned waterbending from Katara. I wrote last week that, at its core, The Legend Of Korra is about one woman's from Korra and the events in Republic City to spotlight the Beifong family. Bolin's ecstatic reaction when he meets his hero is probably the same.
Korra tries to convince the spirits to stay out of the battle, but is distracted when Asami is nearly killed in the fighting, allowing the dragon-eel spirit to attack the Triple Threat's new leader, Tokuga. Three weeks after Tokuga was defeated, Korra confessed to Asami that she is in love with her, to which Asami said she feels the same way. Appearances in other media[ edit ] Korra is featured in The Legend of Korra video game, which takes place in between the second and third seasons of the series.
In addition, she was indirectly inspired by one of Bryan Konietzko's sisters.
Korra was also designed to be an inversion of Aangthe title character of the preceding story Avatar: Instead of the young, spiritual Aang, Korra is a more physical character who has trouble grasping the spiritual side of being the Avatar while being able to already bend three elements at the age of four.
In contrast, Aang takes a while to master each of the elements, but connects with the spirit world instantaneously. Konietzko and DiMartino couldn't agree to a name for her until they learned "Cora", the name of a hotel operator's dog. The name was kept, and only changed in spelling.Korra meets Iroh - The Legend of Korra (A New Spiritual Age)
In the end, Konietzko and DiMartino chose to openly depict Korra and Asami's relationship in the series finale because they didn't want to regret not doing so after the series ended. While still having limits on what could be shown, Nickelodeon was supportive of the relationship when approached. Before drawing the character, Konietzko and DiMartino discussed her athleticism and physicality which factored into the earliest illustrations of Korra.

It took the pair and Joaquim Dos Santos 's combined efforts to finalize her character design. She is briefly seen wearing it again during a flashback in the fourth season.
Konietzko thought it was "fun to play with" the familiar Water Tribe outfit. After her defeat of Amon, she underwent an outfit change, gaining an asymmetrical top and sleeves. Korra for the first three seasons is depicted with long hair that is usually kept in a ponytail, though she has it down on several occasions such as when attending festivities, while entering the Avatar State by the Red Lotus and during her battle with Zaheer shortly afterward.
This outfit's boots are based on an existing pair of faux suede flat winter buckle boots. Varney stated that she loved the character, describing her as being "complicated" while reasoning that this was due to her age and responsibilities and summarized her experience voicing Korra as having been "such a privilege to be a part of".
Varney understood the criticism of her character and felt it was one of the compelling aspects of the series, as Korra was someone that "you're not always looking up to" and mentioned Superman while saying that a character is more interesting to her when they are flawed.
The Last Airbender, Varney remembered her advice about the fandom where DeLisle told her to be ready for her "life to change. For instance, Avatar Roku - a firebender - took longer to learn waterbending and Aang - an airbender - took longer to learn earthbending.
The waterbender Korra, on the other hand, had little difficulty with firebending but had considerable trouble with airbending, a situation noted to be spiritual and not elemental. Her best friend and animal guide is a polar bear-dog named Naga, whose strength helps Korra out of many dangerous situations.
Although wild polar bear dogs were originally feared and hunted by Water Tribes, Korra is the first person to ever tame one. She also develops a strong friendship, and later romance,  with Asami Sato, a wealthy industrialist. Korra has strong relationships with the family of her previous life: Having learned waterbending from Katara and then airbending from Tenzin, Tenzin's children look up to her as an older sister, and Kya and Bumi regard her as a friend.
The Legend of Korra (season 2)
Korra is generally on good terms with her own parents, but has little contact with her uncle or cousins, whom she considers weird and her father considers dangerous.
Korra is unusual amongst her past lives in that she is technically royalty: Korra's character develops and matures during episodes 11 through 12 of the first season when she is confronted with detachment from her main three bending skills, leaving her only with airbending, which she had unlocked to save Mako from Amon. Later, she connects to her spiritual self through Aang. Once the connection to her Avatar predecessors is established, Aang is able to bestow energybending upon Korra as well as her main three bending skills lost earlier.
Although Korra is able to bend all four elements, while being capable of entering the Avatar State, Korra is still in the process of perfecting her airbending skills as well as having a true connection and understanding of her spiritual self to complete her training as a fully realized Avatar. Combined with the events of seasons 2 and 3 placing her in life and death situations, the former having her no longer able to contact her past lives for advice, Korra begins to suffer post traumatic stress by the events of Book Four: Balance while doubting her abilities as the Avatar to maintain balance after those she faced have each disrupted the order she was struggling to protect in massive ways.
But ultimately, once able to let go of the pain she went through and realizing the significance to her past suffering, Korra returns to her usual self while becoming a more compassionate person from her ordeals.

Abilities[ edit ] Korra has impeccable athleticism and acrobaticsshown being capable of simultaneously lifting Tenzin and his children with relative ease. She has surprising speed that go along with her agility and reflexes, which make her a skilled combatant in and of themselves. Her physical strength and stamina makes her capable of swimming across large bodies of water for days, or lift and throw significantly larger opponents. She can punch with enough force to break iron pipes or shatter large chunks of ice launched at her.
However, due to the efforts of Tonraq, Chief SokkaFire Lord Zukoand Councilman Tenzin, the attempt was thwarted and the criminals were apprehended, although Unalaq's involvement remained unknown.
After the incident, Tonraq and Tenzin decided to seclude the Avatar in the Southern Water Tribe compoundaway from the public eye as she pursued the bending arts.
However, their session got cut short by Tonraq, who noticed a snowstorm was heading their way. When the winds carried the howls of a pack of polar bear dogs across the frozen tundra, Korra desired to go play with them but was forced to return home with her parents for safety. Korra discovered a lone polar bear pup in the South Pole after searching the tundras in the middle of a storm. During the night, however, she sneaked out and braved the storm, intending to track down the pack and play with them.
Stumbling upon a sole pup, which got separated from the pack in the storm, she gained the animal's trust by offering it some fish jerky and started to hop around on all fours around her, desiring to play together. When the young Avatar realized after a while that she too had gotten herself lost in the raging storm, Korra urged the animal not to fear as she was the Avatar and proceeded to build a rudimentary igloo with her waterbending.
Sheltered from the wind, she attempted to bend a small flame for heat but subsequently lost control of it, startling herself and the polar bear pup. She quickly apologized to the animal, noting that she was not a good firebender yet due to Katara discouraging her to bend the other elements until she mastered waterbending. Musing that being the Avatar was not as fun as she thought it would be due to the abundance of rules, she found herself cheered up by the pup as it started licking her hand.
Huddled together, the two youngsters eventually fell asleep. The next morning, Korra and the pup awoke from their slumber when Tonraq found and cracked open their shelter. She promptly introduced the polar bear dog to them as Naga and asked if she could keep her, as she had lost her pack and needed a new family. Much to their mutual enthusiasm, Korra was allowed to keep her, and they all returned home where the youngsters continued to play together.

Inseparable during the following years growing up, Naga became Korra's best friend, animal guide, and main means of transport,  while Korra demonstrated a prodigious talent in the arts of waterbending, earthbending, and firebending during her training sessions at the Southern Water Tribe compound. By AG, at the age of seventeen, Korra had mastered all the elements save for airbending, which she was set to be taught by Tenzin as soon as he moved to the Southern Water Tribe.
However, after Tenzin's move to her home fell through, Korra took matters into her own hands and stowed away on a ship, traveling to Republic City. Roaming though the city in search of Air Temple Islandshe discovered that the bustling metropolis was not all that she was told to be; she learned that there was a great deal of imbalance among its citizens with triads and Equalists running around.
