|"The city is far too dangerous. Avatar Aang tasked us with keeping you safe while you mastered the four elements."|
|— The White Lotus leader to Korra.|
The White Lotus leader, along with two other members of the Order, visited the South Pole four years after the death of Avatar Aang in search of his reincarnation. They entered the home of Tonraq and Senna, who assured the members that their daughter, Korra, was the person they sought. The White Lotus leader was initially skeptical, having previously investigated multiple claims in both Water Tribes, but he was proven false when Korra promptly demonstrated her earthbending, firebending, and waterbending abilities in front of the members of the Order.
The leader was present at Korra's firebending test, and witnessed the young Avatar demonstrate her prowess in the art before the renowned organization and Katara, her waterbending master. Although he expressed concerns over her lack of restraint in firebending and ignorance of the spiritual side of being the Avatar, he deemed Korra a firebending master and told her that she was ready to commence her airbending training under Tenzin's tutelage.
When the airbending master announced that he could not relocate to the Southern Water Tribe, the White Lotus leader, Tenzin, and Korra discussed the delay of Korra's training and their best course of action. When Korra suggested that she could return to Republic City with Tenzin, the White Lotus leader promptly objected, emphasizing that it was the Order's task to protect Korra while she mastered the four elements, and that Republic City was too dangerous for the young Avatar.
