I'm Mako, a firebender for the Fire Ferrets. The Fire Ferrets are a pro-bending team consisting of myself, my brother Bolin, and a recent addition, Korra. Damn you, Hasook. If you ever show up again, I will personally see to your demise and firebend your a** into the championships.
Bolin and I were orphaned when I was 8 years old. As a result, you could say that having lived on the streets has given me a hard-edge and drive to survive, all the while protecting my younger brother. In fact, we used to work for the Triple Threat Triad.. I ran numbers for them, but it was all a mean's to survive. We've since left that lifestyle after Toza came around and offered us a chance to make a better living.
Likewise, it wasn't until Korra came into our lives that we realized it could only get more hectic..
