"Tenzin is the son of Aang and Katara in the upcoming series Avatar: Legend of Korra. He is knowledgable in Airbending, and the new Avatar Korra is searching to find him and learn from him. Not much is known about Tenzin so far, as Legend of Korra will not come out until 2011." - Avatar Wiki

Sounds pretty sweeeet. I wonder if the'yre going to combine Aang and Katara's face, rather then just randomly make a new guy. Awwww... he' could have , like,, copper skinned, but with Aang's grey eyes, ang naturally spontanious, just like Aang - that would be so cute. <3

Putting my male ego aside, I'm happy to hear the name of one of Katara&Aang's canon children. He could have felt a loner as a child, because he was possibly the one Airbender in his family (well it sounds like that since Korra's searching for him).

Since we know next to nothing about him, there's not much I can talk about. I have to comment on how fitting I think his name is, though. It's a stroke of brilliance. Tenzin Gyatso is the current Dalai Lama. So, that's pretty sweet. I wonder how old they'll make him. Thirties? Forties? Fifties? Older? They could find a way to make him younger but I don't know how that'll pan out.

I wonder how interracial babies work in the Avatar world. Can Tenzin water & air bend?

As far as his looks are concerned, I imagine him as being darker than Aang, but lighter than Katara. His eyes are either hazel like his father's or blue like his mother's and I'm really hoping it'll be blue. He might choose to honor his 1/2 Air Nomad ancestry and shave his head (maybe even have the arrow tattoos?) or grow hair.

Also which of his cultural identities will he choose to identify with more? The Air Nomad side, or the Water Tribe side?

I've been wondering this very same thing since the press release came out! Cheesy

I hope he's in his 30s or 40s, though I wouldn't mind if he turns out to be older. I don't think he'll be younger than 30-something though, unless Aang and Katara had him very late in life -- which I guess is still possible, but I'm leaning more towards Tenzin being older than younger.

^Hmm, I think besides fan theories, Mike and Bryan mentioned any child born from two different benders has the chance to bend one of the two, or may be born a non-bender.

I don't think he's an airbender. (The title of Avatar: The Last Airbender says otherwise.)

Back in the first Korra thread before the board was made someone mentioned the idea of Aang's family being taught the ways of airbending while not being able to bend, so that they could pass the art to the next generation of Avatar. I like that idea if he can't bend.

Mike and Bryan once said in an interview that Aang and Katara's children could be airbenders or waterbenders or nonbenders. The only person that can bend more than one element is the Avatar, so it's highly unlikely that we'll find any multibenders.

But since they say he'll be Korra's airbending teacher it's safe to assume he can air bend (I really hope he can do both though. It'd be nice to see a dual-bender lol). However we don't know if he's considered a master, and Korra just wants to be taught by him because she has no other choice.

I find it funny how everyone was saying they wouldn't watch Korra if it had a Kataang descendant, and now they seem to have completely forgotten that. x)

It may well be possible that Tenzin is Korra's only option for learning airbending, if Aang and Katara's other children didn't come out airbenders (or if he has no siblings).

But if he does have other airbending siblings, it would be interesting to see how it's him that ends up being the airbending sifu. Maybe he's the oldest? Maybe he's the only master? Maybe Korra just liked him better than the rest?

Be awesome if Tenzin's a bit of a flake. He is his father's son after all. Someone that would rather do something like Bonsai gardening than teach Korra.

I also wonder if Tenzin's an only child. He could have a younger sibling that he might suggest Korra learn from than him, but Korra might not want to learn from someone close to her age like the last Avatar did.

That would take all the attention off Tenzin though. Why would the creators publicly confirm him if they intended on having more of Kataang's children? Why not confirm them as well?

Although if he did have siblings, it'd be interesting if one of them was the central villain.

Maybe they don't want to distract from him being the sifu. Or maybe any siblings he may have aren't important to the plot of Korra. Or maybe they're part of an important plot point they don't want to give away. Or maybe they haven't decided yet if Tenzin will have siblings.

The possibilities are endless! Cheesy

I really hope Tenzin isn't some super-serious mentor type like Jeong Jeong. I really think he should inherit at least a little bit of goofiness from his father. Since Korra is supposed to be hotheaded and rebellious, it would be nice to cast Tenzin as a bit of a foil to her by making him laid back and fun-loving.

Because Korra winds up learning from Tenzin anyway. Or his younger sibling winds up in trouble somehow. I'd imagine a direct descendant of Aang would be a target in some way to the anti-benders.

They've only confirmed two characters anyway, and I doubt Tenzin's the villain. (Though he could be and that would be friggin' awesome.) Other characters of equal, or even greater importance, as Tenzin are going to appear as we go forward. Saying that Aang and Katara had more than one child isn't too out of the question.

I'm prety sure Tenzin has to airbend. I mean, he is  Aang's son, and he teaches Korra airbending - the last element she has to learn.
also, i pictured him kinda young, like late twenties, i dunno. but i guess its make more sense if he's older. eh, either way Smiley

Why would they care about a previous Avatar's descendant though? It's not like he's at all special.

I don't think personality traits are passed down genetically. I think it has to do with how he was raised. I think motherly/nurturing Katara & fun loving/free spirited Aang did a good job raising him though. Unless something happened in his childhood that messed him up.

I'm just throwing theories around as I go, buddy. But let's see....

Well. Doubt the world population of Airbenders is above the fingers on one hand, even assuming Aang has more than just a son.

If there are anti bender revolts, I'd think the bender there's the fewest # of would be especially targeted. I mean, even among other benders, a single airbender wouldn't have anyone to have his back. After all, they say life is like high school (on TV) but bigger. Different means you stand out like a sore thumb, which is an odd phrase, imo.

This is what I believe, from what we know Tenzin will be the only Airbender in this series. From how Aang was literally the last Airbender in ATLA, there shouldn't be no one else that can Airbend. Later in life he has a kid that happens to be an Airbender to pass on knowledge from Aang and so forth, lets hope the Airbenders don't get totally wiped out. That would suck alot!
