|Chronological and political information|
Katara was born to the chief of the Southern Water Tribe, Hakoda, and his wife, Kya, and was the last child the couple had. She became the younger sister of Sokka, who was born a year earlier, in 84 AG.
Early in life it was revealed that Katara was an Waterbender, but because of the presence of the Fire Nation unit, the Southern Raiders, her powers were hidden. When the Southern Raiders attacked the village, Kya sacrificed herself for Katara, saying that she was the last Waterbender of the Southern Water Tribe. The leader of the Southern Raiders, Yon Rha, killed her.
After her father set sail and left the two siblings to go fight in the war, Katara became the motherly figure, which later greatly molded her personality.
At the age of fourteen, she and Sokka discovered Avatar Aang, who was frozen in an iceberg for one hundred years. She and her brother then accompanied Aang to and to help him master the remaining three elements. Katara was an important figure in ending the Hundred Year War and bringing peace to the World once again.
After the war Sokka, Aang and Katara settled down in Ba Sing Se, in General Iroh's tea shop. After a week of rest and relaxation, they got an urgent letter from Fire Lord Zuko and rushed to him. There they learned that a revolt took place in the Fire Nation and that a civil war had begun during Fire Lord Zuko and the Red Revolt, an organisation of Fire Nation generals, that wanted to form a dictatorship.
While they were with Zuko an urgent message arrived, that said that Fire Nation ships were being destroyed in Shin Yun harbour. The Gaang volunteered to go to the harbour to investigate. After they caught the person responsible, Aang found out that he was Hokai, and old friend from the Southern Air Temple.
Katara was also an important figure in the battle of Was Na Si, a week long siege of the Red Revolt controlled city. She helped heal wounded Fire Nation soldiers, but also fought side by side with the others, as they battled their way to victory.
When Aang found out that King Bumi died, Katara was an important figure, helping Aang overcome his crisis by telling him a story about her loss. She later accompanied the rest of the Gaang as they went to Ba Sing Se, to liberate the city from the Dai Li. She was an important figure during the attack on the Dai Li controlled Royal Palace, and helped King Kuei.
After the battle at Ba Sing Se she accompanied Aang, Hokai and Toph, as they went searching for the lost Air Nomad tablet. When they found it, Katara was shocked to find out, that Sokka was an Airbender all along.
Later she accompanied the rest of the Gaang to the Eastern Air Temple, where Sokka started his Airbending training. She was also present when the Gaang saved Jinju, her great-grandfather, from Koh, the face stealer.
