When Sokka was nine his mother was killed during a Fire Nation Raid on their tribe, he felt helpless for not being able to help protect his mother. He grew up and learned the skills to be a warrior, but before his training was finished his Father, with all the other men, to fight in the war, Leaving Sokka as the only Warrior left to defend the Tribe. His father leaving had a bigger effect on Sokka than the Death of his mother as he was told to Protect his sister, Katara and the whole tribe, this combined with his father not being there to bring him Ice dodging, to complete his journey to becoming a man. Not having any other Warrior to teach him, Sokka couldn’t hone his skills and wasn’t that good a warrior. He began to train the kids of the tribe to become warriors to very limited success. Because of his fathers leaving words he became very protective of Katara, and was always very dismissive of her practicing her Waterbending referring to it as “Magic”, he grew to hate the Fire Nation for what they did to his family and longed to help to defeat them.
While out Fishing, Sokka gets soaked by Katara practicing her Waterbending, he is angry at Katara for doing this “magic”. They get caught in a current and end up stranded on a piece of ice, Sokka Blames Katara and her Waterbending for their situation, furious at Sokka being so inconsiderate she begins to shout at him telling him how she does everything while he plays Solider. She inadvertently Waterbends, cracking open the ice and revealing a Huge sphere of Ice with a glowing boy inside. Katara rushes to crack open the ice, Air vents out as the boy, still glowing, steps out of the ice. Sokka raises his spear to Protect Katara as she rushes to catch the boy. Sokka watches on suspicious of the boy as Katara helps him. The boy reveals his name is Aang and that he is an Airbender, he introduces them to his Flying Bison, Appa, Sokka non believing as ever thinks this is a joke and is displeased at there being another bender. They return to their Tribe and introduce everybody to Aang, Sokka is furious when Aang begins to play with his “soldiers” and wreck his snow battlements. Sokka notices a flare go off from the crashed Fire Nation ship, and “¬†believes that Aang set it off on purpose, when Katara and Aang return he immediately banishes Aang from the village, Katara who has become close friends with Aang attempts to defend him even deciding to leave with him.

They take Appa who proves Sokka wrong by flying and arrive at Zuko’s ship to find Aang battling Zuko, Zuko knocks Aang into the Water. Suddenly Aang rises out of the Water, Glowing and takes out Zuko and his crew. Aang, Katara and Sokka escape on Appa with a mission, to help Aang to end the War and knock a few Fire Nation heads along the way.
The group first heads to the Southern Air Temple in search of any remaining Air Nomads, Sokka realizes that Katara is trying to hide the truth of the Fire Nations extermination from Aang, he attempts to cheer up Aang by playing Air Ball with him, when Sokka sees a lone Flying Lemur he chases it looking to eat it while Aang chases it to keep it as a pet. They end up chasing it to the skeleton of Aang’s friend and mentor Monk Gyatso, Aang really upset goes into the Avatar State and Katara and Sokka manage to calm him down by telling him that he and Katara are his family now.
