Analay was a bender who specialized in a unique form of bending called shadowbending.
Analay was one of the four benders that Yahshi scouted for Team Avatar. After showing off her unique shadowbending abilities and tickling AvatarAang with shadows, the gang began to discuss whether or not to recruit her. However, just as they were about to announce their decision, Analay and the three other benders left to start their own group after deciding that they did not like being judged.
Analay is a shadowbender capable of fashioning her shadow into weapons such as whips to bind people from a distance. She is also capable of creating shadow constructs that she can control using her abilities, as she created a shadow wolf with which she travels.
