Bolin is a primary character in The Legend of Korra and is a close friend and earth bender to the avatar, Korra. Bolin grew up in Republic City under the protection of his older brother, Mako. Bolin's parentless life never impedes his pursuit of happiness, as he serves the joker role similar to Sokka in Avatar: The Last Airbender.
| Bolin is among the few Earth Benders who can successfully earth bend without being in contact with the ground. The only other notable figure accomplishing this was Bumi in Avatar: The Last Airbender.
Partly due to Pro-bending, Bolin is skilled in aim and a more modern styled bending technique featuring disc-like projectiles styled like those found in the Pro-bending arena and defensive walls used to counter anything thrown at him. Bolin's laid back attitude often contradicts his focus while bending.
