Book Five: Memory
Jinora's involvement after the attack on Republic City had given her more respect among the people, since she was one of the few who stood up to Kuvira in the first place. Since her mastery of airbending, she'd even began to act as a mentor to the newer benders, showing off her skills and intelligence to the people around her. However, those occasions weren't a common thing, and she usually had plenty of free time to herself and her family.
During this free time, she, Meelo, Ikki and Kai decided to play "Capture the Flag" in the Spirit World with Korra. They did get pretty close to capturing it, but were caught at the last second and lost. Jinora gave her congrats to Korra, as Korra was becoming better at the game each time they tried. However, Jinora didn't exactly enjoy it when a rock spirit showed up, scolding them and telling them to basically shut up. Lucky for her, that problem was quickly resolved by another spirit, but Korra needed to go, thus cutting their game short. She and the rest stayed for another hour before her mother came in looking for them.
