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, having been assured by a young couple that their daughter, Korra, was that person. This claim proved to be correct as Korra demonstrated earthbending, firebending, and waterbending in front of the members of the Order.
The leader was present at Korra's firebending test; during the examination she demonstrated 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. He emphasized 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.
