Location:Republic City
Tenzin is the youngest of three siblings, the children of Avatar Aang, the last Airbender, and Katara of the Southern Water Tribe. The oldest child is the only daughter - Kya - who was also the only Waterbender of the siblings and thusly took after their mother a great deal. The middle child is named Bumi, who never demonstrated any bending abilities at all. Then there was Tenzin - a quiet child that Bumi always tried to help ‘loosen up a bit’, but in the end was always much more at home practicing airbending with his father.

The responsibility Tenzin feels towards his Airbending abilities is massive. He wears the same Air Nomad tattoos that his father earned when he was learning bending as a child, and he was the first in over one hundred years to earn them. When he came of age, he began taking over the day-to-day management and guidance of the Air Acolytes at the newly-constructed Air Temple Island while his father focused more and more on the government of the also newly-founded Republic City. It was an arrangement that worked well for the both of them, even as Bumi went off to join the United Forces and Kya went to study.

Some fathers and sons play catch; Aang and Tenzin raced air scooters. And Tenzin, above all things, very much loved his father.

Currently Tenzin serves both as councilman (duly elected, he will point out incessantly, even though people probably voted for him only because he is his father’s son) and leader at Air Temple Island where he lives with his very pregnant wife Pema and their three children - Jinora, Ikki, and Meelo. The new Avatar, a Southern Water Tribe member named Korra, is due for her Airbending training very soon, but unrest in Republic City might prevent Tenzin from being able to move to the South Pole to train her.


Tenzin is from name of 'The Legend of Korra', and is the property of name of Nickelodeon, and the authors. They appear here solely for the purpose of role-playing in [community profile] milliways_bar, from which no profit whatsoever is being made.
