Iruka Sato is a waterbender from the United Republic, son of Avatar Korra and Asami Sato, and friends with the actual Avatar, Hikar, and Kensi, as well as their waterbending instructor. Originally from the Southern Water Tribe, he was adopted by Korra and Asami along with Amala, his old sister.

Personality Edit

He's a funny guy and people like Kensi consider him one of the best guys ever.

Abilities Edit

Waterbending Edit

Having been trained by his mother, Avatar Korra, Iruka is a very skilled master waterbender. He mastered several high-level techniques, including water gimbals, pressurized water drills, and water rings. His abilities include also healing.

Healing Edit

After training under his grandmother, he became not only one of the best waterbending masters, but a remarkable healer. His abilities allow him to heal deep wounds such as broken legs or ice burns, known to have healed a lot of his students after confronting Hikar.

Spiritbending Edit

It's known he can spiritbend since he purified a Dark Spirit who threatened his waterbending/healing academy in the Northern Water Tribe. He usually has the ability to purify and, even though he knows how to, he never destroys spirits or souls with negative energy, though he could.

Relationships Edit

Romantic/Platonic Edit

  • Janji: It's known they met on Air Temple Island, and they got married two weeks after they discovered Hikar is the new Avatar.

Family Edit

  • Aria Sato: When she was little, she enjoyed, like Zeick, the games they used to play together, like they were in adventures or teaching them Pai-Sho.
  • Zeick Sato: He was to little to remember his uncle, but they always enjoyed those times together playing.
  • Deyek Sato: He's her second favourite son, given he's the youngest. But she always got saddened by the four years he went to train with his aunt.
  • Amala Sato: His cousin, they were the only family they ever had except for their mothers Korra and Asami Sato. They always cared for each other and protected each other with abilities.

Friendships Edit

  • Hikar Firestone: As apprentice, he always said he was fierce and capable, but since they knew Yurei's from the Red Lotus, everything changed. He always cared for him like a son.
  • Kensi: He is his favourite student, given his talent to both heal, spiritbend, and bloodbend. Even though he's his third waterbending instructor, he considers him as the "Best Teacher Ever".

Other Edit

  • Yurei: They never liked each other too much, and they don't now that they know Yurei is Red Lotus.
  • Zhasha: She absolutely hated him, and Iruka hated her back.

Trivia Edit

  • He's the first known waterbending male to be adopted by a lesbian couple.
  • He's another LGTBQ character in this fanon. Other characters like him are Hikar Firestone, Kensi, Janji, Danila, and Deyek Sato.
  • Although it wasn't intended, his name is the same as Naruto's character "Iruka", who was also Naruto Uzumaki's teacher and friend. This is an amazing coincidence, given the intention of calling this character Iruka was because it means "dolphin".
