What I find interesting is that supposedly the Air Nomads had some sort of pureness of spirit that made it so every single child born was an air bender. But, Aang had a child who was a non bender. Maybe it was the water bender half that effected it? who knows.

In some way, Korra is an avatar descendant but that doesn't mean she is blood related to him. Children of korra can be air benders.

Only the Avatar's native element is passed down to their children.

If air bending would die out, would the next airbender avatar be able to resurrect it?
Not like aang, but really all gone. nobody trapped in big blocks of ice

Nope. the avatar can learn any bending but is born into a certain type of bending. I.E. korra born as a water bender and aang as an air bender. its these initial bending states that are passed along genetically so it seems (thats why aang and katara only gave birth to an air bender, water bender, and non bender and not some random fire bender from no where.) with literally no more air benders the avatar chain would either be broken or skip to the next element

How are you certain that it would just skip and not try and balance the it. Maybe the powers are given to a to be born random child to continue the cycle.

Guys, the whole point of Ozai's reason for mass murder was "if every airbender is killed, the next time the cycle lands on air the avatar cycle would be finished"

Avatars can't ressurect bending styles

Actually, because you develop Bending powers based upon your connection with nature and the spirits (which is why EVERY member of the Air-Nomad tribe was a bender, as they were most in tune with them), it stands to reason that you could theoretically develop bending powers on your own despite having none in your ancestry, simply due to your connection.

I'm just quoting what I heard from the wiki, but just as well there is a natural explanation.

As any avid fan would explain to you, that actually CAN happen, it's just that the personality of the bender also has a massive effect on their proficiency. Perhaps it's just due to the culture that not many benders of different types are found in different kingdoms

What if the reason Tenzin left Lin was because she was infertile and he felt that the responsibility to continue the air bending line was too important. He would have been the only air bender in the world at the time.

Here's a thought, Aang and Amon could take bending, Korra could return bending to others. Do you think eventually there might come a point where bending might be bestowed on a non-bender?

i don't think so because Aang did it through the avatar state, Amon did some super blood bending stuff and Korra needed the avatar state just to restore what was technically still there, just blocked. but then again, it is a good concept and i wouldn't put anything past the writers, it just doesn't seem likely to me.

I wonder if Korra can give bending to non-benders. Sonce bending is partly spiritual, it could be possible that all the air nomad acolytes would become airbenders.

I thought all Avatars were reincarnations of Aang?

Ozai didn't initiate the murder of the Airbenders and they were all wiped out long before he came to power. although i do see your point, but since Aang has had an airbender child, who has had three airbender children, who could have three more each...well you get the idea, by the time earth avatar and fire avatar are gone, there will be plenty of airbenders left, all from Aang.

Tenzin would be wise to shag more than one woman, so the Airbenders repopulate quicker, just saying

I always wondered why Aang and Katara stopped with Tenzin. You'd think they'd want to make as many airbenders as possible, therefore have a **** ton of kids

sort of scumbagery on their side; seeing that Tenzin is an airbender Aang left the responsibility of recreating a whole nation in his (hopefully) fertile loins.

I think it's just another thing that wasn't given enough thought

ah it doesn't matter too much, they already have three, four if you count the baby, and if each of them goes off and has more than by the time the cycle comes round it will be sorted.

My bet is that after a certain period the air acolytes will gain the ability to airbend just as the air nomads before them. The air nomads learnt airbending from the bison, it was not an inborn gift. Then soon after every air nomad can bend simply because their culture was so spiritually focused that they gained mastery over their element. If the air acolytes live as the air nomads did, sooner or later air bending is going to have to have a resurgence

Actually, and correct me if I'm wrong, I read something a while back about the avatar universe, first of all it is entirely possible for a person born without the ability to bend to gain the ability to bend. Second, bending abilities are not decided solely on the genes passed down to a person through their parents, chance also plays a role, it is entirely possible for a water bending couple to give birth to an air bender or even for non-benders to have an air bending baby.

technically speaking, they're all going to be descendents of Tenzin too.

The others could have simply held onto recessive traits that will become dominant in their children. They do not have to be solely from Tenzin.
