First appearance

Chapter Four (Viper's Venom)

Desna and Eska are the twin leaders of the Northern Water Tribe. They are also the cousins to Avatar Korra. After the Harmonic Convergence, they became the leading royalty of the North after Unalaq's death.


Desna and Eska are mainly emotionless, not showing much emotion aside from complete boredom or lack of interest. They are overly detailed when it comes to observation. They seemed almost exact copies of each, both physically and emotionally, but there are some differences they have.

  • Desna has grown the more deciding one, often coming up with the decisions before Eska. He had grown more attached to his twin sister and will go to great lengths to keeps her safe. His respect for Korra had grown slightly, but not very much.
  • Eska had kept her clingy attitude towards her things to a minimum. Although passive, she can turn extremely emotional in deep distress. Her mind was still thinking of Bolin, signifying she still has feelings for her earthbender.


Compared to most waterbenders, they mostly are keen to ice-bending, a sub bending style from waterbending. Although the North Pole doesn't allow it, it seems Eska somehow got a free passage when it came to the fighting styles of waterbending. Eska and Desna are very peaked in their bending due to the fact that they have to protect an entire tribe from danger.
