About Amon

Amon, born as Noatak, was the charismatic and mysterious leader of a revolutionary group of chi blockers known as the Equalists, whose ultimate goal was to create equality for all by ridding the world of benders.[1] A nimble and stealthy fighter, Amon was fearless in facing his opponents, regardless of their bending skills and abilities.

Claiming he was a non-bender and possessed the ability to remove a person's bending permanently, a power only the Avatar had ever demonstrated, Amon gained the confidence and support of many people with the same ideals. While the complete conquest of Republic City by the Equalists was at hand, Amon was outed by Avatar Korra as a fraud. In actuality, he was a prodigious Northern Water Tribe bloodbender whose father was the escaped crime boss Yakone. Alongside his younger brother, the former Councilman Tarrlok, Amon was shaped by Yakone to be a tool for his revenge against the Avatar.
