The Legend Of Korra Character You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Earth. Fire. Air. Water. The beginning of an episode of "The Legend of Korra," or a brief summary of the zodiac signs? Why not both? Despite being shorter in episode count than "Avatar: The Last Airbender," the sequel series has a much larger ensemble of characters, ranging from young kids to older versions of the original show's main characters. So many benders and non-benders are introduced through "Korra's" four seasons that it can honestly be a bit difficult to keep track of them all — or at least, it would be if they weren't each so distinct and compelling. And, of course, flawed.

"The Legend of Korra" is a show where everyone screws up from time to time, even the good guys. It's a show about growth, healing, and balance, and in its exploration of those themes, "Korra" creates some of the most relatable animated characters in recent TV history, per Study Breaks. But which character is your perfect match? Here's what "Legend of Korra" character you're most similar to based on your zodiac sign.

Aries: Korra

Was there any doubt that Korra would be a fire sign?

A quick consideration of her personality conjures words like headstrong, passionate, fearless, and competitive. Those qualities can go to extremes at times in the form of a quick temper and a refusal to listen to others' perspectives. For the most part, though, Korra is a paragon — someone who wants to be the strongest, but who will sacrifice everything to protect those who need protecting and fulfill her responsibilities as the Avatar.

"Main character energy" is a phrase that can be used to describe the Aries sign (March 21 to April 19), and that analogy absolutely holds true in "The Legend of Korra," via Allure. All of Korra's strongest traits, from her fiery passion to her occasional stubbornness, are embodied in the first fire sign of the zodiac. Korra may be a waterbender by birth, but she's rarely the go-with-the-flow type. If she were, she wouldn't be the Avatar fans have come to love — a person whose emotions and ego can get the better of her at times, but who's fiercely loyal and always tries to do the right thing.

By the end of the series, Korra has grown in a multitude of ways. She finally recognizes when and how to resolve situations with diplomacy rather than violence, and she has a far greater capacity for empathy and compassion. Still, her core Aries traits remain — loyalty, intensity, and a fierce belief in herself.

Taurus: Tenzin

It might seem odd at first to see an airbending master like Aang's son categorized as an earth sign, but Taurus is a better fit than you might think for Tenzin. Ruling from April 20 to May 20 and represented by the bull, Taurus is defined by both its love of serenity and relaxation and its often stubborn attitude towards change and alternative ideas, via Allure.

Despite his better instincts, Tenzin is frequently ruled by his own self-righteousness. He believes there's a right way to do things, and he bristles at suggestions to the contrary. However, those moments rarely impair his calm aura for long. Tenzin is a man who loves meditation, contemplation, and the natural world. He's almost always put together and is exceedingly comfortable in his own skin. And of course, he's always available to give a bit of wisdom or life advice, most of which is worth taking to heart.

Tenzin is responsible. He's understanding. And at times, he's a bit difficult to deal with. In other words, and despite his status as an airbender, he's a perfect representative for the first earth sign of the zodiac.

Gemini: Bolin

It would have been easy to put Eska and Desna here, given that the sign of Gemini (May 21 to June 20) is symbolized by two twins, but the personality match would be all wrong. Bolin, on the other hand, is an excellent choice.

He may not be an airbender, but the air sign still fits him like a glove. Bolin is a charmer. He's a guy who makes everyone else in the room feel comfortable, often by making himself the butt of his own jokes. He has a natural curiosity and has drifted between various professions and passions, from professional athletics and film acting to humanitarian work. Bolin is hilarious, talkative, and easily likable, but he can also be held back at times by his own inhibitions and doubts.

More often than not, Geminis are people who are able to embrace their inner child fully — not at the expense of responsibility or growth, but as an asset and as a release. Watching "The Legend of Korra," it's almost impossible not to love Bolin. He's the kind of character who just seems fun to hang out with, but when push comes to shove, he's also one of the most competent and loyal fighters in the whole "Avatar" universe.

Cancer: Mako

Following Bolin on the zodiac calendar is none other than his own brother, Mako — former captain of the Fire Ferrets, detective of the Republic City Police, and personal bodyguard to Prince Wu of the Earth Kingdom. All of those titles speak to Mako's incredible skill and power as a firebender, as well as his tactical intelligence and dedication. But there's another side to Mako too, one that could be described as reserved, moody, or outright angsty.

To be fair to Mako, he's been through a lot. His parents both died when he was young, leaving him alone to take care of both himself and his younger brother. To do that, he had to fight hard and protect himself from anyone who could harm him, leading to some lingering defense mechanisms later on in life.

Of course, tendencies for introversion and self-preservation aren't inherently wrong or bad. They happen to be cardinal characteristics of the Cancer sign, which covers those born between June 21 and July 22. A water sign, Cancers are as careful with their emotions as they are driven in their worldly pursuits, via Allure. They're dedicated to their goals and loyal to their friends, but they can be held back at times by insecurity and cynicism. And that's Mako in a nutshell.

Leo: Varrick

Iknik Blackstone Varrick (yes, that's his real full name) is a curious person to say the absolute least. He's an enterprising entrepreneur with an eccentric personality and an extraordinarily high view of himself. He's also been a dangerous and manipulative criminal who's resorted to sabotage, kidnapping, and fearmongering to ensure his own success. Above all, Varrick is a creature of comfort who needs every callus purged from his body and every cup of tea served with honey.

Taking both his best and worst qualities together, Varrick is a Leo through and through. Reigning from July 23 to August 22, the second fire sign of the zodiac calendar is represented by the lion and characterized by everything that entails: large egos, boisterous personalities, vanity, volume, and a love of luxurious things. At his best, Varrick is a genius, unconventional thinker who can unite people by the power of his conviction alone. At his worst, he's a ruthless leader who will do nearly anything to keep himself and his own interests on top.

Fortunately, Varrick's kinder tendencies start to take over in the latter half of "Korra." He ends the series as a loyal and quirky member of the crew, someone who works to atone for his past mistakes by using his many skills for the good of the world.

He's still unmovable in his skincare routine, though.

Virgo: Asami

Asami Sato is so talented at so many things that it feels impossible at times. She's a successful businesswoman, an expert engineer and mechanic, an ace driver and pilot, a martial artist who can hold her own against elite benders, and a capable leader when push comes to shove. She balances so many plates at once, and yet it's rare to see one of them ever drop. Brilliant, accomplished, and incredibly hardworking, Asami represents all the best parts of the sign of Virgo.

Those born between August 23 and September 22 fall under the zodiac's second earth sign, which embodies the spirit of hard work, via Allure. If Virgos have a common pitfall, it's an occasional tendency to make harsh judgments about people, even of themselves. Asami certainly falls into that trap herself a couple of times over the course of "The Legend of Korra," but she always gets up and goes right back to work, helping her friends and pushing herself to new limits.

Libra: Jinora

Finally, a bender whose element matches their sign.

If you were to paint a portrait of the airbender philosophy, it would be a picture of Jinora. She's measured, considerate, calm, poised, and highly compassionate for the world at large. Though she can certainly hold her own in a fight, her true strengths are more spiritual — problem-solving through diplomacy, empathy, and holistic awareness. More than anything, Jinora values harmony, both in her own life and in all that surrounds her.

These traits are all highly emblematic of the air sign Libra, which rules from September 23 to October 22, via Allure. Represented by the scales, Libras have a true heart for justice, balance, and fairness in all areas of life. Those values drive the actions of the new Air Nation in "The Legend of Korra," and Jinora is one of the main people leading the charge. Her spiritual balance is her center, and it leads her on many missions of humanitarianism. Jinora leads, but she leads quietly and by example. She is firmly in her own power, and the world is better for it.

Scorpio: Kuvira

Let's not beat around the bush: Kuvira did some horrid and reprehensible things in "The Legend of Korra." Prison camps, tyrannical takeovers, betrayal, conquest — all these and more are part and parcel of her run as the villain of Season 4. The ensuing "Korra" comics show Kuvira attempting repentance for her misdeeds in the months following the end of the series per CBR, but her crimes still haunt her, as they should.

But taken apart from her actions, the qualities that make Kuvira who she is aren't inherently bad. She's intense, motivated, cool under pressure, and always two steps ahead of the competition. She's loyal to her own ideals above all else, which creates a powerful sense of conviction for anything she does. Will she betray her allies and do unscrupulous things to that end? Absolutely, but her cunning, intellect, and unbreakable will are impressive, to say the least.

Kuvira is an excellent example of a Scorpio who follows the sign's worst instincts. Ruling from October 23 to November 21, Scorpio has a reputation for scheming, but the water sign's natural discernment and drive don't have to be used in harmful ways. They can certainly be wielded as powerful weapons by people like Kuvira, but it's also easy to envision her using her natural talents for good. At least she's on the road to redemption after her loss to Korra.

Sagittarius: Bumi

Wanderlust? Bumi's got it, and don't worry, he'll tell you every story in great detail.

Aang and Katara's oldest child is the platonic uncle character by the time he first appears in "The Legend of Korra," bringing belly laughs, tall tales from his military days, a booming voice, and a deep love for his friends and family. Bumi may not always be easy to get along with because his personality is so big, but he's undoubtedly someone you want in your corner. Though he becomes an airbender late in life thanks to the spiritual reawakening triggered by Harmonic Convergence, Bumi still fits comfortably into the fire sign Sagittarius, which reigns from November 22 until December 21.

Those who wear Sagittarius as their sun sign are known for their love of travel, humor, and lack of filter, among other things. While less headstrong than the other fire signs, Sagittarius is no less passionate in its many pursuits. Even in his later years, Bumi carries himself with the energy of a rambunctious teenager, occasionally to the annoyance of his siblings, Kya and Tenzin. Aang's nomadic prankster spirit certainly lives on in Bumi, who's been the source of some of "Korra's" most hilarious and memorable moments.

Capricorn: Lin Beifong

Lin Beifong is a tough nut to crack. She's Toph's daughter through and through, from her uncompromising intensity to her willingness to say absolutely anything, regardless of who it insults. She's dedicated to her duties as a protector of the peace, but she also falls victim to some inner demons — pessimism, frustration, stubbornness, and an unwillingness to let others in. Lin can find the bad in any situation, but she's also one of the best friends you can have, and she will stop at nothing to fulfill her responsibilities.

Those familiar with astrology may have already paired all those traits with the earth sign Capricorn, which rules from December 22 to January 19. It's appropriate for an earthbender of Lin's caliber to be matched with an earth sign, and she's an excellent fit in terms of personality as well. Responsibility and devotion to a specific guiding credo are common traits of Capricorns, and those are certainly the forces that drive Lin Beifong.

Whether she's running the show in Republic City or traveling the world to help protect the Avatar, Lin is always focused first and foremost on the mission. At her core, she has a lot of love to give for her family and friends, but it can be difficult for her to show that because of her hard exterior. At the end of the day, though, you'd much rather be on Lin's side than any other, because she will beat you. She already knows how.

Aquarius: Suyin Beifong

Another pair of "Korra" siblings slotted together on the zodiac calendar? Could it be?

It absolutely is, as Lin's younger sister Suyin Beifong fits quite well under the air sign Aquarius (January 20 to February 18). A rebel since birth, Suyin has done everything from piracy to dance instruction, all while raising five children and acting as head of state for the most technologically advanced city in the "Avatar" world. Independence and free-thinking are the things she values most, and they're the ideals she constructs Zaofu around — a place where art, technology, excellence, and diversity of thought are all celebrated.

Of course, Su isn't without her less admirable qualities. Her anger can get the best of her when she feels slighted or betrayed, and it can take some serious doing to convince her out of her strong convictions. These are unmistakable Beifong traits, however, and they show time and time again that Su is just as much Toph's daughter as her sister. Sure, she has a bit of a rebellious streak, even as an adult, but it's all in the interest of her big-picture mindset. Does she get caught up in herself a bit too much? Surely, but if she didn't she wouldn't be an Aquarius.

Pisces: Kya

All three of Aang and Katara's children make the list here as Kya takes the Pisces slot (February 19 to March 20). A middle child and a deeply eccentric and spiritual person, Kya matches her waterbending with the last water sign of the zodiac, which is characterized by the same quirky gentleness and childlike attitude that she carries throughout the show.

It wouldn't be wrong to call Pisces a "free spirit" sign, especially in the case of Kya, who traveled all over the world in her early life seeking spiritual growth and simply enjoying life. She can be a bit prickly when quarreling with her siblings, but in most situations, Kya has a tenderness and empathic quality that clearly comes from both of her parents. She's the perfect shoulder to cry on, the perfect moral support, but also a person who spends a lot of time getting to know herself. Occasionally, her airy nature manifests in ways that may seem immature, but that's just part of the Kya package.

She's a Pisces through and through, embodying all that the final zodiac sign has to offer.
