Sokka is a character from the Avatar: The Last Airbender fandom.


Sokka was a Water Tribe warrior, born in the Southern Water Tribe. Despite not being a bender, he became the strategist of Team Avatar, constantly trying to prove himself to be a great warrior much like his father. He showed his improving leadership skills during his travels with the group. He was also described as "good at reading maps". Sokka was also the “matter of fact” guy of the group as he did not believe in spirit magic, having openly mocked it. Though that did not deter him from having fun from time to time; Sokka’s humor became a staple on their travels.

Sokka and Suki had a rough start. The Kyoshi Warriors ambushed Team Avatar and Sokka was upset that he lost to a girl. He tried to fight Suki but was defeated again. She later trained Sokka for a while until he had to leave. Sokka apologized to Suki before leaving and she kissed him. The two were later reunited at Full Moon Bay and both helped a family cross the Serpent's Pass. Sokka was initially protective of Suki yet could not bring himself to kiss her because of his past with Yue. However, they later kissed and became a couple.

Sokka was smitten by Yue as soon as he met her. He flirted with her and the two decided to hang out. Yue kissed Sokka but then revealed that she was engaged to a man named Hahn. The two decided to still hang out as friends but Yue eventually admitted that she could not just like Sokka as a friend. Later, Chief Arnook appointed Sokka to be Yue's bodyguard. He was very dutiful when it came to protecting her and tried to stop her from sacrificing her life as a mortal in order to replace the dead moon spirit.


During the comic, Sokka and Kaya met when Team Avatar stopped by a town. Sokka made a side comment that led to Kaya believing that he was the Avatar, with Sokka playing along. The ruse continued as she introduced him to her family and showed him off to the locals. When the Rough Rhinos entered the town in search of the Avatar, they mistakenly captured Sokka, prompting, Aang, Katara, and Toph, posing as Sokka's "sidekicks" to defend the town while Sokka pretended to bend.
