Book 2 Spirits 1 hour premiere confirmed + New character Bios


A second source is saying that Korra will have a 2 episode back to back premiere on September 13th of Rebel Spirit and The Southern Lights. The Futon Critic are saying this along with also confirming that the episode titles for K201-K204 are indeed correct. Though they are saying the K205 title is to be announced, which NickandMore reported is called Peacekeepers.


The second piece of news is that have at last updated their character bios to include new Book 2 characters.

We have bios for: Tonraq, Unalaq, Desna and Eska, Varrick, Bumi and Kya

They reveal a few new things about the characters that were not mentioned in previous bios.


After leaving home in the Northern Water Tribe to settle further south, Korra’s father had a lot of adjusting to do. That was before he realized his daughter was the Avatar. As a warrior and leader, Tonraq is greatly revered and respected in his small southern tribe. Despite being a powerful waterbender, however, he lacks a strong and crucial connection to the spiritual side of life.


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. As a traditionalist, he’s taken on the task of restoring the lost connection between the Southern Water Tribe and the Spirit World, but can only do so with the help of his Avatar niece.

Desna and Eska

These two waterbending 16-year-olds rarely show any emotion besides boredom, due to the fact that they dislike most people, places, and things. Blood may not be thicker than water for this family, and as members of the Northern Water Tribe, Eska and Desna mostly see Korra as a southern rube, Avatar or not.


Self-proclaimed and self-made “Biz-bender” from the Southern Water Tribe, Varrick is pretty proud of himself. He spends most of his time traveling the world on his enormous yacht and living a fabulous lifestyle, at the expense of his poor assistant, Zhu Li. Always ready to cut a deal or make a new investment, he’s constantly looking for ways expand his global shipping business.


What he lacks in bending skills, Bumi makes up for in leadership. Tenzin’s older brother is renowned for his talent for strategy and courageousness, but his immaturity might make you think otherwise. He may be a respected commander of the United Forces now, but that doesn’t mean he won’t give his little airbending brother a noogie every now and then.


Like a true waterbender, Kya is good at retaining a clear and cool head in times of distress. Around her brothers Tenzin and Bumi, however, she can become as unpredictable as a raging river. The second child of Aang and Katara, Kya was named after her grandmother, and always felt as stronger connection with her mother than her Avatar father.

First things first, some of this info may not be correct. Some of it contradicts information we have got before. We know that the intro to K201 establishes that Bumi is retired, yet his bio mentions him being a commander. I am convinced we knew from before that Kya was the oldest of the Kataang kids not Bumi.

That said these are nice Bios, further plot suggested in Unalaq needing to use Korra as the Avatar. The big thing that jumped out to me was Kya having a stronger connection to Katara than Aang. Are they just saying that she and Katara got on really well and her relationship with Aang was fine or is it hinting at a slight issue in their relationship.

    Correction, Kya is the first born child to Katara and Aang, not the second born. Bumi was the second born and then Tenzin.

    Yup hence why I said as much at the bottom of the post.
    Not the first time has got something wrong.

    I think they are setting up book two with the Bumi commander thing assuming we don’t know K205 spoilers. I like the Kataang children either way, Kya, Bumi, Tenzin or Bumi, Kya, Tenzin. As long as Tenzin is the youngest I am happy.

    Bill Rinaldi confirmed Bumi is the eldest sibling on tumblr, so I guess Nick are correct for once 😀
    I assume Bumi’s retirement is a spoiler thing they are keeping back until Rebel Spirit airs.

    this is interesting. and for a minute i was panicking when i read that kya was the second born because i always thought she was the oldest. but it is strange that bumi is the oldest. *mindblown*

    Verrick with his “biz-bender”. How awesome is that ?? It’s just still the same field with my username “economybender”. Thanks for someone who makes that verrick profile. I must be more curious to this “verrick” character

    Thanks for the information! I’m excited about the bios, whether they’re true or not, they give us something to look for. It’s really interesting to hear that Bumi is an actual good leader.
