Anyone got any information about this?

Am I the only
one who' s
wondering who
the **** Aang' s
parents were?
And why they were
never once mentioned,
and why Aang didn' t
seem remotely
sad about their
deaths, and
ever
asked
about
them?

aang was an air-nomad... boys went to his temple and girls went to another one...the only ppl at the temples were old monks and kids being taught airbending, the adults and middle aged airbenders would be vagabonds. the monks raised the children, i am assuming that aang never met his parents

I'm pretty sure the Air Nomad's weren't really a family based society, I think after they were born, they were just taken care of by the people as a whole...

I'm pretty sure the monks lived in different temples based on their gender. (north and west were male and south and east were female, or something like that) The guys went to the female temples to breed, so they never got married, and kids never knew their parents. I think I saw that on the wikia.

hmm, sounds plausible, thanks!

No problem, my dude.

But who says, Aang's parents were benders?

They could have been poor non-benders who just gave him away after they learned about his abilities.
There are a lot of benders born to non-bender parents.

Actually i just checked up on the air nomad wiki and it says "Unlike the other nations, the people of the Air Nomads were, without any seen exception, all benders due to the high level of spirituality of their people."
#19 to #17 - skycatcher (06/10/2012) [-]
Oh, okay :D

Well, you can't possibly know that from the show. I don't think they mention that :D

All the female airbenders raised bison at one of the temples (It think it was the upside down one).
Once a year male nomads would visit the temple to get it on and raise more airbender babies.
Most, if not all baby nomads are airbenders (you might say "but Aang's son Bumi isn't a bender", well, neither was Katara's father or grandmother. Aang's line had airbenders going back generations)
#69 to #26 - skycatcher (06/10/2012) [-]
I find this rather disturbing.. Meeting only to breed babies.. I liked the Air Nomads before, but now they seem... weird.
User avatar #15 to #13 - Faz (06/10/2012) [-]
Katara was born to 2 non benders wasnt she? Since it was said that her mum lied about being the last water bender in the southern tribe to protect katara and i think toph is also born to 2 non benders since you never see them bending or are told they bend.
#18 to #15 - skycatcher (06/10/2012) [-]
I think Katara's mom was a bender. She just said she was the LAST bender, so they wouldn't take Katara with them.
If she were no bender, she would not have to say anything like that at all :D

But yeah, I believe Toph's parents are non-benders..
User avatar #20 to #18 - Faz (06/10/2012) [-]
The southern raider captain said that his sources said there was one remaining water bender in the south pole and when katara confronted the captain with zuko she said she lied to you, she was protecting the last water bender....me"
User avatar #9 to #1 - BridgeTroll (06/10/2012) [-]
north and south were male, east and west were female. how could south be female if thats were aang is from?
User avatar #252 to #9 - PootieTang (06/11/2012) [-]
I didn't remember which one he was from. I apologize for making a comment that rustled you jimmies.

That is correct, but Monk Giatso raised him, so I guess you could call him a step-dad or something? And he was depressed as 			****		 when he realized he had been murdered.

Air nomads never knew their parents, it helped them reach a spiritual detachment from the world
#142 to #113 - John Cena (06/10/2012) [-]
Is that why Tenzin never says "my dad" or "my father" and instead says "avatar aang" whenever they talk about Aang :O? Did Aang try to teach him the ways of the monks by telling him not to call him dad or omething;o?

he could have been separated from his parents at birth in the monastery... he wouldnt of had any emotions for his birth parents and instead for the monks who raised him

just a thought

Which would explain why he was so angry over Gyatso's death

they were going to show them in an episode but decided not to because they had more important episodes to make.

Here's the Mom right here. They very briefly mention her in season 3, episode 6.

second episode, Zoku says aang would not know anything about fathers since being raised by monks
User avatar #45 - helenwheels (06/10/2012) [-]
The air nomads nomad around for a while after childhood before being extremely old.

Aang was raised by people who had finished their travels and achieved spiritual enlightenment.

his parents where off seeing the world.

Monk Gyatso was his surrogate Father-figure, he was pretty upset about his death.

Because he probably didn't know them himself. He was given to the monks to be raised as one of them as a young child, he probably doesn't even remember them. Also, you have to keep in mind that it was known that the Avatar was going to be born into the Air Nomads, so it was likely that many young children born after Roku's death were put into the care of the monks so that they could watch for the signs. Based on their culture, a child not knowing or not being raised by their natural parents doesn't seem to be that uncommon.
User avatar #93 to #89 - nicknackkittycat (06/10/2012) [-]
not only this but because his master, which you see dead in one of the early episodes, was more like a father to him than anyone else, so really this takes over for the idea of him having "traditional" parents, his father figure died so really we can say he did care for his "nontraditional" parent
#44 - haziri (06/10/2012) [-]
The nomads probably had a "we're all family" kind of thing. And Aang has definitely shown his feelings about their deaths.
User avatar #239 - rhc (06/11/2012) [-]
if i remember, all babies who can air bend are taken to be raised by the monks. so if he were a regular, he would have stayed with his parents.
User avatar #242 to #239 - corundum (06/11/2012) [-]
All the Air Nomad babies can airbend. I guess the parents don't care for them personally because they're travelers.
User avatar #227 - iwdafl (06/11/2012) [-]
Aang was an air nomad, His parent's did not raise him. He was most likely taken from his parents right after being born.....If anything the only parental figure he ever knew was monk Giatso ( not sure how it's spelled ). you can tell because monk giatso goes to talk to Aang and says "I won't let them take you from me Aang". OH THE FEEELS!
User avatar #106 - awesomenessdefined (06/10/2012) [-]
Air Nomads are raised by monks, hell the only exceptions are Tenzin's kids.
#111 to #106 - irishlawyer (06/10/2012) [-]
and Tenzin...

oh, right. My bad

When an air nomad is born they are sent to a different temple within a few days, he never knew his parents
User avatar #14 - undeaddog (06/10/2012) [-]
He is a monk, monks leave their parents when they go to the temple and thus he had not met them for a few years and thus he was not very sadend about it
User avatar #155 to #14 - RisenLichen ONLINE (06/10/2012) [-]
he was born in the temples, not outside them. The males would go to the females temples and vice versa, they would have children and thats it.

The air nomads were monks; generally with the highly religious people brought up by monks they were most likely given to the monks as babies
