In a recent post regarding "The Legend of Korra" making an appearance at New York Comic Con, a fan asked why no women leaders appear in the series and why Katara is not the head of the Water Tribe.
For whatever reason, Bryan Konietzko has chosen to answer this question, perhaps giving spoilers to hint at what's to come.
"There are women world leaders in the Avatar world during Korra's present: Zuko's daughter is the Fire Lord, and there is an Earth Queen ruling the Earth Kingdom," writes Konietzko on his Tumblr.
"As for Katara, there is no separate chief in the Southern Water Tribe: both tribes are officially ruled by a royal descendant (currently Unalaq), residing in the Northern Tribe. Prior to the Hundred Year War, I think there was more of a link between families in both tribes feeding into this ruling family, but the tribes have drifted apart and the chief residing in the North isn't much more than a figurehead to the South."
Given where "The Legend of Korra" season 2 is headed, it is clear the friction between the Northern and Southern Water Tribes will be a central conflict of the Book.
The next two episodes of "The Legend of Korra" are called "Civil Wars Part 1" and "Civil Wars Part 2." No doubt, the conflict within the Water Tribe will come to a head.
And as far as Katara not playing a bigger role, Konietzko has this to say.
"For the Southern Tribe, we always imagined there is a sort of 'Council of Elders,' consisting of women and men, who jointly govern the South. I can imagine Katara takes part in that council, and I can also imagine she isn't interested in being the chief of both tribes anyway."
Will we see more of the Earth and Fire nations as "The Legend of Korra" continues? Hopefully, these spoilers hint at potential storylines for Book 3 and Book 4.
