Singi (pronounced: SIN-gee) is a young female Air Nomad of the mountains along the northern (eventual) Earth Kingdom continent, the main protagonist of the trilogy, and the Avatar immediately succeeding Wan.


Singi is level-headed in most instances of tension, anxiety or conflict. However, when presented with a particularly difficult task, she can become nervous or overly-hard on herself to resolve the issue at hand. Upon learning from Jamyang how quickly Wan learned the elements, combined with the two discovering she was the Avatar, Singi is determined, albeit self-critical, to live up to his greatness, and tries hard to master the elements.

She is also naturally curious, and developed a strong desire to learn about the spirits even before she became the Avatar. Like her predecessor, she is shown to be compassionate, courageous, and optimistic, and one who primarily puts the needs and safety of others: animals, humans, and spirits, above her own.



Prior to finding out she was the Avatar, Singi lived a relatively quiet life along the southern portion of the mountains along the northern proto-Earth Kingdom. She was fond of spending time with her parents, as well as by herself, where she would often spend time along the shores of the West Lake. When not with her parents or alone, she would spend much of her time with her close friend, mentor, and airbending instructor, Monk Jamyang. While preferring to spend time alone, she would also occasionally spend time with a couple of her classmates and friends, Jinpa (pronounced: JIN-pah, 锦帕) and Rinchen (pronounced: RIN-chen, 仁钦).

Book 1: Tension

Discovery of Being the Avatar

At the age of thirteen, Singi experiences a few dreams involving a cloaked person riding atop an animal (i.e. Wan riding Mula). One evening, she and her parents touch upon the story of Wan (without mentioning his name), during which Singi has a few questions (the most pressing being why the spirits have left the physical world) and intends to meet Jamyang the next morning to clear things up, and unbeknownst to her parents, address the dreams she has been having. That morning, before meeting with Jamyang, Singi hastily draws water from a communal well when the rope snaps, causing the bucket to fall into the dark depths. Unable to retrieve the bucket with typical airbending moves, due to the darkness, and in her haste, Singi attempts a new technique, in which she ends up waterbending the bucket out, much to her bewilderment. Upon meeting Jamyang at the site that will eventually be the Northern Air Temple, she finds him in a single room sweeping up shavings from a wooden statue of Wan and Raava, a work he has been single-handedly engaged in for a decade.

Upon noting to Jamyang that she has been having dreams of the man depicted in the statue, Jamyang recalls the story of Wan's rise to become the first Avatar. Afterwards, Singi puts the pieces together from her discussion with her parents last night, and marvels that the material world is free of spirits, and that the lion turtles relinquished their roles as protectors and element-granters to humans, because of Wan. Jamyang notes that he met Wan once during his youth, and describes a bonding moment between the two one night. After telling his second story, Jamyang states that while Wan has passed away, Raava lives on in another person who will ultimately be Wan's successor to maintain peace and balance as the Avatar. At this, Singi recollects and describes the incident at the well earlier that morning to Jamyang, at which the latter requests the former to demonstrate her action. At a fountain along the temple grounds, Singi repeats the motion she used to retrieve the bucket and successfully waterbends a column of water, much to Jamyang's shock. At this, Jamyang identifies Singi as the Avatar, and the two return to the latter's residence to inform her parents and begin her quest to master the other elements.

Version One (Excluding Dao's Relatives):

Ta Ying

Version Two (Including Dao's Relatives):

Ta Ying


  • Singi became the Avatar at 9,750 BG at thirteen years of age, 100 years after Wan was born.
    • In addition, based on the dating of the Chinese zodiac, Singi was born in the Year of the Goat in 9,763 BG. She shares this zodiac animal with Gaza, who was born in 9,787 BG.
  • Singi's parents are both airbenders. Dema (pronounced: DEE-ma, 德玛) is an Arabic name meaning "the cloud that brings rain to the crops after a drought"[1], while Rabten (pronounced: RAHB-ten) is Tibetan for "steadfast" or "faithful"[2].
  • Like Aang's air scooter, Singi has created a unique airbending move. She first conjures a cloud to ride (as seen with Wan and the proto-airbenders), then bends a "shield" of air around her. The cloud does not move higher than a foot off the ground. When not in the Avatar State, this move is good for simultaneous dodging and protection (with the exception of earth, which can break the shield; fire may also be able to penetrate it, due to the air enhancing the fire), but when in the Avatar State, this move is formidable, easily able to break through earth columns/discs. This move will be known in the trilogy as the "air bullet" (though it will not be known as such to the characters, given the time period).
    • Due to inventing the air bullet, like Aang's situation with the air scooter, Singi only needed to complete 35 of the 36 tiers of airbending in order to be certified as an airbending master, and receive her tattoos.
    • Whereas Aang received his tattoos at age 12, it is revealed in "The Night Session" that Singi created the air bullet at age 11, making her one of, if not the youngest airbending master in Air Nomad history.
  • Singi and Guilin's romantic relationship (which will be established in Book 3: Resolution) is considered one of, if not the first, inter-cultural relationship in the Avatar universe.
    • Furthermore, while not featured in The Rise of Avatar Singi, the two will end up having one child, a son named Roshan (罗山), which is Hindi for "light" or "light at dawn", and Sanskrit for "shining light".
  • Like Aang, Singi finds firebending [mentally] difficult to learn. As opposed to Aang's reason of accidentally burning Katara, Singi is reluctant to learn the element because it is the one used by those against her and the other cultures of the world. Thus, she believes nothing but rage and destruction can come from wielding fire. Like Aang, however, she will learn that fire is a source of life after confronting Ran and Shaw alongside Ra Sho, in addition to multiple consultations with Ra Sho, Jamyang, Wan, and Raava.
  • Were Singi an actual animated character, she would be voiced by Sarah Bolger, best known for her roles in the films In America, Stormbreaker, and The Spiderwick Chronicles, as well as providing the voice for the female lead role of Umi Matsuzaki for the English-dub of From Up on Poppy Hill.
  • Singi's name was inspired by that of a female domestic yak of the same name residing in the Stone Zoo in Stoneham, Massachusetts, where the author interned for ten weeks during the summer of 2016. When asked for any meaning behind the name, no translation was given; however, it was noted that the origin was Himalayan, which is a region on Earth in which Buddhist groups (one of the many bases for the Air Nomads) are found.
  • Singi's appearance is generally based off of Jinora's in Book Four: Balance.
    • Her hairstyle in Book 3 is based off of that of Minako Okukawa from the highly popular sports Anime series Yuri!!! on Ice in that it is of medium length that reaches past her shoulders, where half of her hair is down, while the other half is up in a short ponytail.
  • Singi's relationship with Wan, while the typical predecessor-successor relationship seen between Avatars (namely Aang and Roku), was also inspired by that between the characters of Harry Potter and Sirius Black in the Harry Potter franchise. Wan has often served as another voice of reason and advice towards Singi when the latter has needed it (the first being Jamyang), and has been shown to console Singi when stressed about matters which Jamyang is unable to fully relate to.
    • One particular line uttered by Sirius to Harry in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix particularly inspired the comparative relationship between the characters of both franchises: "We've all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are."
