Katara is a female Waterbender. She was born and raised in the Southern Water Tribe by her grandmother, Kanna, alongside her older brother Sokka. Katara was the last Waterbender in her tribe and led a normal teenage life for a Southern Water Tribe girl until she and her brother discovered the young Air Nomad Avatar, Aang encased for a 100 years within a sphere of ice. In need of a Waterbending teacher, the siblings and Aang left the South Pole for the Northern Water Tribe. Katara and Sokka eventually became close friends of Aang, and after their journey to the North Pole, continued to travel with him across the world as he mastered the remaining elements, Earth and Fire. The siblings' assistance helped Aang halt the Fire Nation's ambitions of world domination, ending the century-long war, and finally restoring balance to the world.
The capture of Katara's mother, Kya, by the Fire Nation when she was very young, and the later departure of her father, Hakoda, to fight in the War, left her traumatised and alone. Though she was cared for by her grandmother, Kanna, she invariably found herself filling the mother role left behind by Kya, even to her own brother. As was the custom of the Water Tribe for women to see to domestic duties, Katara soon took on many of the responsibilities expected of someone much her senior and quickly became ardently independent and strong willed. Morally and emotionally driven, she developed a great sense of justice and compassion for others, becoming fiercely protective of others in need, when stirred.
Initially, Katara's Waterbending abilities were very limited. However, after her acquisition of a Waterbending scroll, and formal training at the North Pole, her determination and hard work saw her surpass Aang, and completely master the element. She became Aang's Waterbending instructor after their departure from the Northern Water Tribe, replacing Master Pakku, who had instructed them during their time there. Her mastery of water made her a formidable asset to the group. After the War ended, Katara and Aang began a close romantic relationship, and the two eventually married, going on to raise a family, including an Airbender son, Tenzin.
