Jinora is the first child and elder daughter of Tenzin and Pema, and granddaughter of Katara and Avatar Aang. She lives on Air Temple Island with the rest of her family. She has two younger siblings, Ikki and Meelo, and another sibling on the way. Besides being taught airbending by her father, Jinora has an interest in books, and is a rather quiet girl in general.
Jinora is a quiet and studious girl, much different from her younger, more rambunctious siblings. Out of Tenzin's three children, she is the calmest and most mature. She enjoys reading historical fiction, and also loves reading her father's journals which chronicle his adventures with Aang. She is just starting to find boys interesting, which troubles her father greatly. She also seems to enjoy playing Pai Sho with her sister, Ikki, although she does plug her ears at her sister's squealing.
Even though Jinora is still an airbender in training, she has displayed some airbending skill. This was evident when Korra earth bent Jinora and Ikki into the air and she used airbending to glide down. Also, she is able to use a glider and has mastered the air scooter, a move invented by her grandfather, Aang.
