Katara is a 14-year-old girl with a big heart who's determined to save the world - or at least never stop trying. Katara wants to live up to her potential and become a Waterbender in order to save her tribe, but she's still learning to control her powers. Focused and determined, Katara practices the art of waterbending every day in order to be prepared the moment she meets a master Waterbender. Katara wears her mother's necklace, which gives her strength and courage when she needs it the most. Mature beyond her years, Katara is the glue that holds the group together. And she does her best to keep Aang out of harm's way...which makes waterbending look like a piece of cake.
