Tale of Kenji

Kenji is a teenage waterbender residing in the Northern Water Tribe. He is a waterbender with a great potential and power. He was born in United Republic and when he was still an infant he moved back to the North Pole with his aunt, Momo, where he then later learned waterbending and then healing. He has had a rough childhood with his parents being arrested when he was young. He eventually learned the way of the blade from Zuko. He then made a "space dagger". He got the idea from Sokka's "space sword". He and his brother are massively powerful and skilled waterbenders. He wanted to take his skills to the next level, so he plans to move back to the United Republic and rejoin the waterbending triads; the Red Monsoons. He moved back to the Northern Water Tribe to protect his brother from the comet that will pass this summer. He is now learning the master skills from Korra who is now in Republic City in honor of her past.


In 184 AG, his parents were arrested as waterbender triad members. He was then sent to the Northern Water Tribe to live with his aunt, also a waterbender, yet only a healer, Izumi. She taught him the basics of healing and he learned waterbending from masters. In 184 AG, before he moved, his brother, Datte, was born.

His dream is to travel to the Spirit World and lean from Iroh.
