The Legend of Korra was initially conceived as a twelve-episode miniseries.

He was an ambitious politician, considered fair-minded and likable by the general public; however, behind closed doors, he was a manipulative man who held a long-standing rivalry with Councilman Tenzin. He was willing to go to extreme lengths to win the conflict against the Equalistseven if it meant fanning the flames of aggression and risking the lives of innocent people. Tarrlok worked to conceal his identity as son of the infamous fugitive crime boss, Yakonebut the actions of Avatar Korra  and his own unique ability to bloodbend without a full moon  exposed his ancestry to the public.
After the Equalists seized control of Republic CityTarrlok revealed to Korra and Mako that he was the younger brother of Amonthe leader of said group, and that together they shared a tragic past.
Tarrlok was born in the Northern Tribe in AG to Yakone, a fugitive from Republic City, and his wifebecoming the younger brother to Noatak by three years. Together, the family lived peacefully within the Northern Water Tribe. However, as he grew older, Tarrlok and his brother discovered they were waterbendersand Yakone commenced their brutal training. Much to his father's frustration, Tarrlok was not a prodigy like his brother, and thus was frequently the subject of Yakone's outbursts of rage.
At the age of seven, Tarrlok, along with Noatak, left on a supposed hunting trip with their father, far away from their home, during which Yakone revealed his true identity as the notorious former crime boss of Republic City and a once powerful bloodbender.
From that moment on, Yakone included lessons in the art of bloodbending during every full moon, intending to mold his sons into bloodbenders of the highest caliber to exact his revenge on the Avatar. A young Tarrlok bloodbending wolves. After four years of harsh training, consisting mainly of bloodbending animals under the full moon, Tarrlok and his brother learned how to use the illegal technique without the need of a full moon.
They were forced to practice constantly, much to Tarrlok's discontent, who did not have the cold heart required to manipulate helpless animals against their will. Intent on pushing his sons to extremes, Yakone eventually ordered the brothers to bloodbend each other.
Noatak obeyed without hesitation, subduing Tarrlok into a painful state of submission. However, when ordered to do the same to his brother, Tarrlok refused, stating that being bloodbent felt awful.
He voiced his lack of desire to cause anyone to have to endure the same and denounced his bloodbending abilities in front of his father. Enraged, Yakone lashed out at his youngest son, naming him a weakling, though before he could physically attack him, Noatak interfered and subdued him. He tried to persuade Tarrlok to run away with him and start a new life, together away from Yakone and his plans for them, but the younger brother refused, unwilling to abandon their mother.
Noatak called him a coward and executed his impromptu plan and fled into the blizzard; Tarrlok calling after him to no avail.Learn more about Amazon Prime. Close Menu.

The names in the Avatar series are mostly names with a meaning in an Asian language, including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Mongolian, and Tibetan, but also Sanskrit and Hindi. Obviously I don't speak all of these languages, so creating names with real meanings would be a difficult task, and mistakes would slip in far too easily.
So instead I created names without meaning, but names which still fit the Avatar universe, at least most of them, as some randomized combinations won't. Not all names have meanings anyway, and those who do are often very specifically chosen, usually based on the character's personality. For example Princess Yue means moon. Bumi means Earth. Guru Pathik means traveler, and Korra comes from the name Cora, which means maiden.
Another reason why I stuck with fake names is because the meaning of a name has no influence on the story itself.
It's only a little added flavor. As mentioned, not all names have meanings, and many names in the show are actually surnames from various Asian languages, which means many names aren't gender specific. Of course some names are gender specific in terms of how they sound. Katara, Asami, and Kyoshi aren't names which would fit guys well based on the show. So I did separate the names, basing each type on male and female names from the shows. But many names will work as unisex names nonetheless.
While there are 4 types of benders, each of which with their own cultures and, in some cases, their own names, there isn't one specific language used for each culture.
But I did base the first 3 names on air nomads, the second 3 names on water tribes, the next 3 on earth kingdom names and the last 3 on fire nation names. Unfortunately not a whole lot of names were available for water tribe and air nomad names, so I expanded upon those that were available.

As part of the Air Nation, he became a more honorable person, living to serve others by bringing peace and balance wherever possible.
Sometime after AG, he also entered in a romantic relationship with Jinora. Kai grew up as an orphan. When he was finally adopted by a nice family in AG, he took advantage of their kindness by stealing their life savings and spent six months on the run from Earth Kingdom authorities.
Kai was accepted into the new Air Nation despite his mischievous nature. Following Harmonic Convergence, Kai soon discovered he possessed airbending. Soon after, he encountered Team Avatarwho was searching for airbenders to rebuild the Air Nation.
He told them a false story on how his parents were killed by outlaws who were pursuing them, earning their sympathy and quickly being accepted in their company.
Just as he boarded their airship, ready to depart, a sheriff and his deputies arrived, whom he falsely claimed to be outlaws. After Avatar Korra bested them, the sheriff revealed Kai's true identity as a thief.
The boy attempted to run off with his loot, but was caught by Mako.
The sheriff quickly took custody of the young lad, intending to send him to prison. However, in exchange for returning the life savings to Kai's family, Korra convinced the sheriff to allow Kai to turn over a new leaf with Team Avatar.
Though the compromise was accepted, Mako warned Kai that he would be watching him, stating he knew the kind of person Kai was, due to having a similar past. Promising to change, the young boy turned to board the ship, where he gladly accepted Jinora's offer to teach him more about airbending, just before she blushed.
Kai used his airbending to aid his pick-pocketing of rich citizens. While en route to Ba Sing Se, Kai attended an airbending lesson under Jinora's tutelage, during which he swiftly took down Bumi with one air swipe. He stole the retired commander's wallet during the skirmish, engaging in a game of chase after Bumi found out.
Upon arriving in Ba Sing Se, Kai's kleptomania got the better of him and he slipped away to use his airbending to pickpocket the wealthy. He ran away from them, though as he boarded the monorailhe was grabbed by the collar by Mako.
However, he used his airbending to free himself and managed to exit the cart just in time before it left for the Lower Ringleaving the brothers on it without their wallets.
That night, he used his loot to settle down in a luxury resort, where he was addressed as "Master Fong".The premiere episode aired on Nickelodeon on April 14, However, the first two episodes were released online on March 24—25,  and were available in high-definition for free on iTunes.
The series ran for fifty-two episodes, completing its run on December 19, The series picks up seventy years after the end of the Avatar: The Last Airbender story arc with brand new characters and settings. Meanwhile, Toph Beifong had traveled extensively to teach metalbending to other earthbenders.
At the present time, seventy years after the end of the Hundred Year War, Korra, a rebellious, seventeen-year-old girl, is set to complete her airbending training and fulfill her role as the Avatar.
At the beginning of the series, Korra travels to Republic City and starts her airbending training with Tenzin. He has two daughters, Jinoraa "bookworm", and Ikkia "motor-mouth", while Meelohis first son, was his only son until the tenth episode, " Turning the Tides ", when Pema gave birth to another boy named Rohan.
Republic City was the main setting for Book One: Air. However, Republic City is not what Korra imagined it to be. Anti-benders called " Equalists ", who oppose the arts of bendingutilize techniques such as chi blocking to further their goals of revolution, led by Amon. Six months after the events of the Anti-bending Revolution, Korra, having learned to bend all four elements and achieved status as a Fully Realized Avatar, must once again become the student when she delves into the realm of spirits under her paternal uncle's teachings and tutelage.
Now learning the depths of her spiritual connections, Korra soon discovers that light cannot exist without the dark, and in a never ending cycle of creation and destruction, only she has the ability to maintain balance in the world. With a shift in the world's energy due to Harmonic Convergencethe ability to airbend has resurfaced in some nonbenders, prompting Korra and her allies to scour the Earth Kingdom in search for these new benders to offer training and guidance.
However, while the Air Nation is slowly being rebuilt, Zaheer and his fellow Red Lotus accomplices escape their respective prisons and set out to bring all the nations down and succumb the world into anarchy.
Their belief that disorder is the natural order poses a lethal threat to Korra and she must fight to save not only the balance of the nations in the world, but also herself and the Avatar Cycle. When she was supposed to relinquish control to the newly crowned Earth King Wushe denounced his authority and appointed herself the ruler of the Earth Empire. Meanwhile, Korra managed to heal physically, though she is still facing an emotional block caused by residual traces of mercury.
With troubles coming to the Earth Kingdom, Team Avatar divided, and the Avatar's whereabouts unknown, the search for balance begins anew. Korra breaks the tradition of having a male role lead in an action series. Although the creators of the show had planned an ending to the showthe success of Avatar: The Last Airbender caused Nickelodeon to ask for more episodes.
They decided upon a female Avatar due to the large audience of females from the original show and the adoration of the headstrong female characters by the female fan base, and felt it was time to have a big action franchise with a female in the lead instead of the traditional male role.Amonborn as Noatakwas the charismatic and mysterious leader of an anti-bender revolutionary group known as the Equalists. Their ultimate goal was to introduce equality for all by permanently ridding the world of benders.
Claiming to be an innocent nonbender to whom the spirits granted the ability to remove a person's bending permanently, a power previously demonstrated only by the AvatarAmon gained the confidence and support of many people with the same ideals. However, when the complete conquest of Republic City by the Equalists became imminent, Amon's true identity was exposed to the public by Avatar Korra.
In actuality, he was a prodigious Northern Water Tribe bloodbenderson of the escaped crime boss, Yakone. Alongside his younger brother, the former councilmanTarrlokAmon was unknowingly shaped by Yakone to be a tool for his revenge against the Avatar. With his identity exposed and his followers deserting him, Amon fled the city with Tarrlok, but the latter ignited the fuel tank of their speedboatkilling them both.
Noatak and Tarrlok were happier during their younger years. Noatak was born in the Northern Water Tribe to Yakone and his wifeas the older brother of Tarrlok by three years. Growing up, he was a good-natured child who always looked out for his younger brother and wanted everyone to be treated fairly and equally.
When Noatak and Tarrlok both discovered they were waterbendersYakone trained them ruthlessly to develop their skills. When Noatak was ten, Yakone took his sons on a supposed hunting trip far from their home, where he revealed his true identity as a Republic City criminal and explained to them the power of bloodbending. Claiming that their family had the strongest line of bloodbenders in history and with the intent of making his sons bloodbenders of the highest caliber to exact his revenge against Aang for stripping him of his bending, Yakone trained them secretly during every full moon to use their bloodbending on animals, such as yaks and wolves.
Reveling in his newfound power, Noatak also mastered Yakone's unique psychic bloodbending technique by the time he was fourteen. As a bloodbending prodigy, he carried the burden of all his father's expectations and over the years, he became cold and detached. Tired of his father's treatment, a young Noatak bloodbent Yakone. Eventually, Yakone ordered his sons to bloodbend each other, which Noatak did with great ease, ignoring his brother's screams of pain until Yakone ordered him to stop.
When Tarrlok refused to bloodbend Noatak, Yakone became angry, calling him weak, and prepared to attack him as punishment. However, Noatak defended his brother by bloodbending his own father, stating that Yakone, having been stripped of his waterbending by the Avatar, was actually the weak one and that they were his children rather than his "tools of vengeance". He subsequently offered his brother to join him to start a new life away from Yakone, but Tarrlok declined, arguing that he was worried about their mother, thus causing Noatak to agree with their father's opinion of Tarrlok being weak.
After flinging Yakone in the snow, Noatak ran off into the blizzard, prompting Yakone and Tarrlok to search for him in the following days; they eventually assumed that he had perished in the storm. At some point in his life, Noatak discovered that he could use his bloodbending skills to strip a bender of their ability.
He assumed the alias of "Amon" and became the leader of the Equalists, an organization striving to rid the world of bending.
To garner sympathy and hide that he was a bender himself, Amon claimed that he was born on a small farm to a poor family of nonbenders that was being extorted by a firebender. When his father had supposedly confronted the bender, he and the rest of his family were murdered and Amon's face was left scarred from the attack, forcing him to hide behind a mask ever since. He also claimed that he had been granted the power to remove bending by the spirits because they believed the Avatar had failed the world and wanted him to usher in an era of equality.
After Avatar Korra announced her official relocation to Republic City during a press conference at City HallAmon told his second-in-command that the Avatar's arrival would force them to accelerate their plans.
Later, at an Equalist assembly called " The Revelation ", Amon revealed his plan to eradicate the world of benders, as they "had only brought suffering" and "were the cause of every war in every era". Amon rallied the sympathy of his followers with a false backstory, in which his family, all nonbenders, was extorted by a firebender and his face was left horribly scarred.
He also claimed to have been chosen by the spirits to usher in a new era of balance to the world by permanently removing people's bending in order to make equality a reality. Amon removed Lightning Bolt Zolt 's firebending.
