My name is Tenzin. I am a father of four and married to my darling wife Pema. It is my desire to preserve the air nomad culture that I inherited from my father, Avatar Aang with whom I trained extensively. He has taught me everything he knew but has long since passed and reincarnated into the next avatar, Avatar Korra. She is very different from the avatar I knew as a child, but I have always had faith in her as her airbending teacher, spiritual advisor, councilor, and friend. She has taken great strides to fulfill her duty as the avatar and has pulled off some remarkable acts in the name of peace and balance, but there’s more ahead of her, and I know she will do even greater things along life’s journey.
Lin Beifong is my hero.
M!A Status: Tenzin's a lady until the mun goes to bed
Independent Tenzin RP/ask blog. Willing to roleplay with anyone. Tenzin is 51 but will roleplay any age. I do not do smut but will get a little romantic with Pema and possibly Lin, depending the circumstance.
"I don’t see why not. I’ve heard of an account where a father loved his daughter so much that after he died he chose to be reincarnated as her son so he could continue to experience life with her."
"I don’t think the cycle is in jeopardy."
"The acolytes will always be an integral part of the Air Nomad culture. They played a great role in preserving our culture. I was taught early on by my father to never deny the wisdom our culture has to offer to those who genuinely seek it because denying that opportunity of spiritual growth to them not only inhibits our own spiritual growth but it also inhibits the world’s growth towards peace and balance. He went on to tell me these people should be treated like family. ‘Any number of them could have taken care of you in a past life,’ he said, ‘so you should treat them the same as you would your own mother who raised you.’
It is my intention that the Air Acolytes remain a welcomed, permanent extension of the culture. All Air Nomads of the past and their descendants of the future owe our thanks to the acolytes.”
"The first rule of leadership is that everything is your fault. It doesn’t matter if you personally did it or not; if you could have prevented something and didn’t, you’re responsible for the consequences."
He sighed wearily. “You may be right, General Iroh, but…I have a hard time blaming my father for the wrong doing of those men. He couldn’t have known what would happen.”
"Ozai’s the one to blame for the violence. My father was only defending himself. The only exception was when he lost control of the avatar spirit. Even then, that wasn’t him. Avatar Aang found a solution that forced Ozai into submission and put an end to his terrorism without killing anybody. And again, you blame Avatar Aang for Yakone’s doing. He did what was right and fair at the time. Yakone was the one who could not accept his punishment. When the time came, Avatar Korra took care of it."
You keep blaming the avatar for things that weren’t his doing. The way things unfold do not depend solely on the avatar. It depends on everyone’s actions and intentions. We like to put the blame on one person, but the reality is that no one person is to blame. If the avatar is to take any blame, it’s only a small fraction compared to the likes of Ozai and Yakone who’s goal was to spread turmoil and suffering.”
"If Bumi or Avatar Korra or anyone out to protect the innocent tortured or killed or did anything of the like, I would have to accept it, but that doesn’t mean I have to believe it was right for them to do so. Perhaps I am expecting too much from my brother, but I have my standards. It doesn’t mean I’d stop loving him or shun him away. I’d just be…disappointed. But who hasn’t been?"
"How dare you blame him for something that was not in his control! Sozin killed them, not my father! If there’s anything to learn from my father’s life is that there are peaceful solutions to everything.”
"I understand it is complicated, but I’m not going to say it’s right to torture people to get what you want because I firmly believe it is not. Even if it does mean saving lives, there are other ways to do so. You just have to look harder.”
"I have a hard time believing that. If he has any respect for what our father believed in and stood for, he wouldn’t let such a thing happen.”
