|"We must stand against this threat! They took Korra and they are coming for us next. How can you just sit around and watch as everything you know falls apart?"|
|— Lei to Hogosha.|
Lei is half of the current incarnation of the Avatar and half of the second Avatar in Avatar Korra's cycle. Lei was born in Zaofu with his sister, Aiya, but was kidnapped by the Society of Faces and forced to train in their sanctuary in the Si Wong Desert. Although Lei was the clear favorite of Zhu Milou, he hated how his sister was treated by the Society and one night, after Milou tried to harm Aiya, Lei decided that it was time the two left the sanctuary. Now the twins live with the new Team Avatar in Republic City.
Not too long after Lei's birth, he was kidnapped by the Society of Faces and forced to train with Tarrimae and Aye'Li. While Lei was training, Zhu Milou would often tell him about the evils of the world and what had become of his parents.
On the night of the twins' birthdays, Zhu Milou tried to poison Aiya. This was the last straw for Lei and he immediately rescued his sister and the two escaped in the night. Now they live in the safety of Republic City, far away from any member of the Society of Faces.
Lei is a kind young man, but he does often have moments where he can become angry and harm people, but it is only because Zhu Milou Hu taught him to act in such a way.
Although Lei and Aiya share the four elements, the two that Lei usually uses are Fire and Earth, which he believes to be the most powerful of the four.
Lightning Generation & Redirection
Lei is well known for his lightning skills and often likes to show them off. He was taught by Zhu Milou how to conduct the lightning and control this incredible ability.
- Lei's name means "thunder" in Chinese. It is a name that perfectly describes his fighting technique.
- Lei and Aiya are the first case where the Avatar Spirit has been split between two different people.
