  • As we all know, the Air Acolytes were upholding Air Nomad teaching, culture and triditions before peope were granted airbending but what I wonder is what happend to the Acolytes after the tempals were filled with new air benders, I know that at least one of them was givin airbending but what about the ones who weren't, did they still live in the temples and live the same as before? If so doe's that mean that the air nation is know composed of benders and non-benders like the other nations?

      I don't see why not. If you remember from The Rift, Aang said that the early Air Acolytes already had the hearts of Air Nomads. They just needed to be instructed in the "ways" of Air Nomads. So their only real limitation is bending, but as we have seen from the modern Air Acolytes (and the likes of Guru Pathik, by extension) one doesn't need bending to flourish as an Air Nomad and to practice spirituality on the same level as an airbender. After all, the Nomads don't believe in social divisions. And after everything that has transpired with the Air Nomads, I think the Air Acolytes "diluting" the bender gene pool will be a forgivable novelty in their culture.

    • The Acolytes could evolve into the non-bending fraction of the Air nation.

    • The Air Acolytes already are a non-bending fraction of the Air Nation. The new Air nation is now composed of both benders and non-benders like every other nation. The thing I want to know is if there are any children of Air Acolytes who have bending abilities other than airbending?
