Ummi was a Southern Water Tribe woman who fell in love with Avatar Kuruk and intended to marry him. However, before the wedding ceremony could commence, Koh the Face Stealer dragged her into the Spirit World where he stole her face.

History

During the New Moon Celebration, Ummi met Avatar Kuruk. The two immediately fell in love and began a relationship. Kuruk soon proposed to Ummi with a betrothal necklace. The two were to be married at the Spirit Oasis in the Northern Water Tribe. However, as she crossed the bridge, she was pulled by an unseen force into the water. Kuruk jumped in after her, but could not rescue her in time. Koh, a spirit, had lured and trapped her forever to punish Kuruk for his arrogance.[1][2]

Centuries later, when Avatar Aang entered the Spirit World, he confronted Koh and saw Ummi's face.[3] Several months after that, Aang encountered Kuruk while in a coma and told him that Koh still had Ummi's face. Kuruk subsequently vowed that he would keep hunting Koh until he and Ummi were reunited once again.[1] He found the spirit and had every intention of destroying him, but could not when he realized that destroying Koh also meant destroying the love of his life.[2]

Trivia

  • Her name is probably based on umi (海), the Japanese word for "ocean".
  • Kuruk often referred to Ummi as his wife, despite the fact that she was stolen by Koh before she married Kuruk.
  • Ummi was also one of the few people of the Water Tribe to not have blue eyes. Instead, she had brown eyes.
