What Kind of Bender Would You Be in Avatar: the Last Airbender?
by Kennita Leon

The art of Bending was first seen in the Nickelodeon animated series, "Avatar: The Last Airbender" in February 2005 and later "The Legend of Korra" in 2012. It is the ability to manipulate one of the four classic elements, air, water, fire, and earth. Each of the elements is associated with a group of people who can perform the act.; The water benders come from the Water Tribe, the earthbenders from the Earth Kingdom, the aibenders from the Air Nomads, and the firebenders from the fire nation. 

Although each nation is linked to one of the bending arts, not everyone born into a nation can bend an element. In each of bending arts, there is a specialized sub-skill that only a select few benders can master. For example, there are waterbenders who have the ability to heal others and spirit bend. The earth bending sub-skills are lavabending and metalbending. Some firebenders are able to generate and redirect lightning, and some airbenders possess the ability of flight and those who can use spiritual projection.

What kind of bender are you? Will you become a master bender and be able to learn one of the sub-skills? There is only one way to find out, and that is by taking this quiz!
