  • Expy: Of Zuko. He was the heir to the throne of his homeland and was only doing what he thought was the best way to protect his people, but unintentionally wound up overstepping his authority. He was banished from his homeland for his arrogance. Then it turns out that his fate and honor are heavily intertwined with that of the Avatar. The only difference is that he never attempted to reinstate himself back to his homeland.

Really. For being exiled, he "is unambiguously and deliberately based on a character in another, older series." Other than being an exiled heir they're nothing similar in terms of personality, role, actions, or... anything, really.

Should we add Desna and Eska back here? Considering we seem to be keeping Varrick here for good, and they pulled Heel Face Turns, I think it's justified.

Tonraq has more in common with Thor from Marvel's cinematic universe than with Zuko.

Should we move Varrick to enemies now?

Not yet. Remember, most good guys are jerks on the inside, so lets wait until Varrick's true side is revealed.

We immediately moved Unalaq and his kids off to enemies the moment Unalaq's deception was revealed.

Varrick's true side WAS revealed. What he did was low, even for a businessman.

Even if Varrick did not start the conflict, he is still a Big Bad in his own right, he will do anything to profit from the conflict, even if it means escalating tensions whenever he pleases.

All right, it's time to move Varrick off the allies page if it hasn't be done so. The man's blatantly no ally of anybody but himself.

Why isn't the conflict a case of Order Versus Chaos? The rebels are loosely organized, and they want their freedom, but Unalaq's methods represent evil order.

Also, Varrick would be a knight Templar, because his actions did start a war and accelerate Unalaq's plans. He doesn't have the patience for diplomacy. The thing about businessmen, is that they run on diplomacy, not force. So he would be a knight Templar in protecting business, attacking Unalaq was very extreme

A Knight Templar who is totally devoted to a cause, which is not good (even though they believe it to be) and will do anything to advance/defend that cause.

Varrick supports what appears to be a good cause (even if he is Not in This for Your Revolution), which would make him at worse a Well-Intentioned Extremist, but he doesn't really fit extreme measures either- merely being a revolutionary doesn't make you extreme.

Contrast Varrick with his foil, Hiroshi Sato (or really, probably most of the book 1 villains) that's a Knight Templar

I'm stuck using a mobile device, so can someone add in Tonraq's section that Carlos Alazraqui was Darrined by James Remar? Thanks.

Should we move Unalaq, Desna and Eska? It seems that they're being set up as antagonists.

Only once it comes out. Honestly, technically we're not supposed to put stuff from previews up at all, but just try and keep the rampant theorizing off the main pages and it should be fine.

Unless it's explicitly stated that those three are antagonists, putting them there would fall under "rampant theorizing."

Does Tenzin's family have to be in the Allies page?
MrDeath

Why wouldn't they be?

Because they seem to be on a special class of allies.

Tenzin and his family are more than just allies, they are Aang's children, and thus unique in terms of Korra's allies.
MrDeath

And Lin is Toph's child, does that mean she gets a special page too? Iroh is Zuko's grandson, does he?

They're Korra's allies, I don't see why they should have a special section or something.

Agree with Mr Death except I can also see an argument for Tenzin's family being seperate because they are Korra's surrogate family.
