Who is Koh? Surely any true Avatar Fan remembers the notorious face-stealer who resides in The Spirit World. But if for some odd reason you don’t remember him, let me fill you in before I continue:
Koh is a centipede-like spirit who is well know for having a collection of faces in his arsenal. He has the ability to steal the face of any individual who shows emotion while in his presence.
Koh did not necessarily have a major role in The Last Airbender, but the justice he did the show in the short role he did have made me think: will he make his way back into Book 2 of The Legend of Korra? He certainly deserves it.
The main reason that I question this is solely due to the fact that Book 2 is titled Spirit. Korra will enter The Spirit World throughout the Book while also trying to learn the spiritual aspect of being the Avatar. I’d be very surprised if Korra doesn’t come in contact with Koh throughout her journeys.
There really is no proof or evidence that justifies Koh making an appearance in Book 2 of The Legend of Korra, but there is a likelihood. Koh is one of the oldest spirits in The Spirit World; he is also one of the most popular. While Korra advances through The Spirit World in Book 2 she will come in contact with many spirits, and she may converse with them. To think that Korra wouldn’t come in contact with the oldest, most dangerous spirit in The Spirit World is nearly baffling.
The Spirit World is synonymous with Koh because he is the most notorious spirit within the world. Even though we have no evidence or proof to back it up, it seems likely that Koh will at least make some sort of appearance during the course of Book 2.
Update: A user by the alias of Ult11 has reminded me that there actually is evidence that could prove Koh’s return to the show. Before Aang leaves Koh’s Cave in The Last Airbender, Koh quotes,”We’ll meet again.” Aang and Koh never met face-to-face again in the series, but it can be inferred that Koh meant that he’d meet another Avatar again. Besides, Koh had already met many of Aang’s past lives, why shouldn’t he meet his future lives?
Maybe he’ll help Korra defeat The Dark Spirit? Just a thought.
So what do you think: will Koh be in Book 2?
