Yakone was an individual who threatened Republic City forty-two years before Avatar Korra's arrival.


When Yakone threatened Republic City in 128 ASC, Avatar Aang successfully dealt with him head-on. Forty-two years later, Councilman Tarrlock brought him up in an argument with Tenzin in order to persuade the United Repubic City to allow his task force to attack Amon head-on, just like Avatar Aang had done all those years ago against Yakone. Yakone is also a very powerful bloodbender, seeing as how he can bloodbend dozens of people at a time and without the full moon.
