A b o u t- About Me -
Hello! I'm Katara. I am 14 years of age, and the last waterbender of the Southern Water Tribe, my homeland. I am usually described as "powerful, gentle, graceful, optimistic, hopeful, courageous, well-mannered and sweet." Some people say I'm motherly, but... how could I be?! I don't act that way. *Crosses arms* I just care about everyone's well-being!
Hmph. But then again, maybe it's not a bad thing if I do act motherly... once in a while. I mean, ever since my mother died... *sigh* I'm sorry. I don't really want to talk much about it. But it's true, the Fire Nation took my mother away from me when they raided our village many years ago. I still have her necklace and I almost never take it off. This necklace is all I have left of her...
*Pauses and then clears throat* Anyway. I look after my friends and what I consider to be my family: Aang, Sokka and Toph as we travel the world through this dreadful war brought by the Fire Nation on all the other nations.
My story is an interesting one. My brother, Sokka and I were out trying to find food for our village one day. While we were out fishing, a glowing light appeared from under the water and suddenly popped out, revealing a giant iceberg! And then... we saw this boy stuck in it along with a giant horned-six-legged creature behind him. He looked so peaceful. But then, his eyes opened, and they were glowing... along with the arrow tattoo marks on his hands and arms and head. I did everything I could to break the boy out of the iceberg. When he emerged from it, the glowing on his tattoos faded, and he collapsed. When his eyes opened, he stared at me for the longest time. Then he asked me to go penguin sledding with him! Huh. He was just a normal, regular boy... but little did my brother and I know that we had just made the biggest discovery, probably, in history. Because later we found out he was the Avatar, the only person in the entire world who could manipulate all four elements (air, water, earth, fire) and bring balance and peace to our warring world, and he had been gone for 100 years. I knew that if I kept up hope, even when hope seemed completely lost in everyone, that he would come back... and he did.
After we discovered Aang (the Avatar), we agreed to travel the world with him to find teachers that could help him master the other elements, for he only knew air at the time. We traveled to the Northern Water Tribe and found him a master waterbender named Pakku who taught him waterbending. Then we moved on to the earth kingdom and soon met a young blind girl at an earthbending tournament. But don't let her blindness fool you. The girl can earthbend and knock out a whole army of benders and warriors. She later became Aang's earthbending teacher and joined the team. And last but not least, there was Prince Zuko, who in time had become a master firebender. Zuko is the son of the firelord who wants to dominate the world. He banished his son from the Fire Nation after Zuko spoke against a general at a war meeting when he wasn't supposed to. He was sent to capture the Avatar--only then could he return home with his honor. He had constantly been chasing us, but later he realized his true destiny and decided to join the team and teach Aang firebending. But I didn't trust him. He had wanted to hurt Aang so many times! But he earned my trust a few days before Sozin's Comet arrived. When all of Aang's training was complete, we all faced our destinies and took the firelord down from the throne. Now peace reigns over the four nations after a 100 years--and I couldn't have been more proud of anyone but my friends... and most of all, Aang.
*Blushes* My romantic life, you say? Well... I have a love interest. And it is Aang. After the war ended, we finally got together as a couple and have been together ever since. I feel like the most lucky girl in the world. Who would have known when I discovered Aang in the iceberg that we would be a couple? Or rather, I would be the girlfriend of the Avatar? Destiny sure is a funny thing, I always say to myself. *sighs happily*
Whew! That was a lot to say. My apologies. But thank you for listening. And don't hesitate to shoot me a comment or PM. I don't bite. ^_^
