What happened to Suki in Legend of Korra? Why is Sookie not in the Legend of Korra?

The Legend of Korra brought back a lot of beloved characters from the original Avatar: The Last Airbender series and gave them prominent roles in the future.

Katara is present from the beginning, while Zuko and Toph become more prominent in subsequent books. Toph, in particular, becomes a regular character in the series’ final season.

Of course, Aang is no longer alive because he had to die for another Avatar to be created. Even so, he continues to appear as an Avatar spirit within Korra.

However, there are a few notable omissions in Avatar: The Last Airbender. Along with Azula, the most noticeable absences are Sokka and Suki.

Gordon Cormier plays Aang, the young Avatar who must learn to master the four elements (water, earth, fire, and air) to restore balance to the world, which is under threat from the Fire Nation.

Throughout his journey, Aang forms alliances with Water tribe siblings Katara and Sokka, as well as other formidable figures.

Albert Kim, the series’ showrunner, executive producer, and writer, stated that one of the most difficult decisions was deciding what to remove from the animated series.

“That was probably one of the most difficult decisions, deciding what we could or needed to cut to fit it into an eight-episode format,” Kim told Inverse. “It’s a matter of looking at the overall arc of the first season of the original, seeing where certain themes emerged.”

Who will play Suki in Avatar live-action?

After the live-action adaptation of The Last Airbender was released, fans rushed to choose their favorite characters (and create TikTok edits of them).

What were Sokka and Suki up to?

One such actor that fans can’t get enough of is the actress behind Suki, the fan-wielding Kyoshi warrior from episode 2.

What happened to Suki in Legend of Korra?

Suki, tragically, goes unmentioned in the series. The comics, on the other hand, provide some useful information about what she was doing after The Last Airbender ended.

She returned to her roots and reunited with the Kyoshi Warriors. The squad went on to become Zuko’s bodyguards in the wake of the New Ozai Society rising, a terrorist group that sought to dethrone Zuko and return his father to the throne.

As they spent time together, the friendship between Zuko and Suki grew, and Suki came to truly forgive him for his attack on her village.

The best-case scenario is that Sokka and Suki marry and have long, happy lives together.
There is no clear reason why these two beloved characters didn’t have a more prominent role in the Legend of Korra, or any role in the case of Suki.

The Legend of Korra was a little strange in regards to references to the original series. In some cases, it appeared to embrace being a sequel and lean into the source material.

The lack of mention of characters like Azula, Sokka, and Suki makes The Legend of Korra feel incomplete and disconnected from The Last Airbender.

The best hope at this point is that the upcoming movie sheds some light on the adult lives of Sokka and Suki.
