Series SettingEdit

Avatar:The Last AirbenderEdit

Avatar: The Last Airbender is set in a world—adjacent to a parallel spirit world—that is home to humans and hybrid animals. Human civilization is divided into four nations; the Water Tribes, the Earth Kingdom, the Fire Nation, and the Air Nomads. Each nation has a distinct society in which select people, known as "benders" (Waterbenders, Earthbenders, Firebenders and Airbenders), have the ability to manipulate and control the element of their nation using the martial arts. Skilled benders of each element are able to manipulate additional related material, for example, Earthbenders can manipulate metal and sand. Only the Avatar, however, has the ability to bend all four elements. When the Avatar dies, their spirit is reincarnated into the next of the four nations in the Avatar cycle; the Fire Nation, Air Nomads, Water Tribe and Earth Kingdom.

An Avatar incarnation can be male or female and is required to master each bending art in seasonal order, beginning with their native land's element (fire: summer, air: autumn, water: winter and Earth: spring), from the age of sixteen. Avatars can also enter a defense mechanism known as the Avatar State until placed under their control through mental discipline, when the Avatar gains the knowledge and abilities of all past Avatars until the phase ends. Although avatars are most powerful in the Avatar State, if they were killed the reincarnation cycle would end and the avatar would never again be reborn. The Avatar is an international arbiter maintaining relative equality among the nations, and a mediator between humans and spirits.

Avatar:The Legend of KorraEdit

The Legend of Korra is set in the fictional world of Avatar: The Last Airbender, 70 years after the events of that series. The world is separated into four nations: the northern and southern Water Tribes, the Earth Kingdom, the Fire Nation, and the Air Nomads. The distinguishing element of the series is "bending", the ability of some people to telekinetically manipulate the classical element associated with their nation (water, earth, fire, or air). Bending is carried out by spiritual and physical exercises, portrayed as similar to Chinese martial arts.

Only one person, the "Avatar", can bend all four elements. Cyclically reincarnating among the world's four nations, the Avatar maintains peace and balance in the world. The Legend of Korra focuses on Avatar Korra, a seventeen-year-old girl from the Southern Water Tribe and the successor of Avatar Aang from The Last Airbender.

The first season is mostly set in Republic City, the capital of the United Republic of Nations, a multicultural sovereign state that emerged from civil conflict in the Fire Nation colonies in the Earth Kingdom after the end of The Last Airbender founded by both Avatar Aang and Fire Lord Zuko. The 1920s-inspired metropolis is described as "if Manhattan had happened in Asia" by the series' creators,[1] and its residents are united by their passion for "pro-bending", a spectator sport in which two teams composed of an earthbender, waterbender, and firebender throw each other out of a ring using bending techniques. Rapid technological growth has displaced the spirituality of bending, and what was considered a renowned martial art in Avatar: The Last Airbender is now commonplace, with benders in Republic City using their abilities to commit crime, compete in spectator sports, and fulfill everyday jobs.[2] The second season is mostly set in the southern polar region, while the third and fourth seasons take place mostly in the Earth Kingdom and, to a lesser degree, in Republic City.
