The Leader of the Northern Water Tribe
Kurukk is the leader of the Northern Water Tribe. He is a powerful waterbender and former student of Master Irikku, who is thought to be the most powerful waterbender in the world. Kurukk loves his people and his culture, but is not ignorant to the world around him. He understands the balance needed between the elements and will do whatever it takes to maintain balance.
The Earthen Empire worries Kurukk, so much so that he has begun rallying benders to stop the Emperor.
Kurukk is honest, loyal, and strong. His allies respect him and his enemies fear him.
