No, we don't know.  We do know that Pema was a member of the Air Acolytes before she married Tenzin (well... still is, obviously, but you get my point), but other than that, we haven't been given much.

Personally, I'm a big fan of the member-from-birth theory, simply because my headcanon is that she's a Teo Lee baby, and I maintain that Teo really was the original inspiration for the entire concept of the Air Acolytes to begin with (because The Promise may have told us how the group was founded but I think the idea had been in the back of Aang's mind since he met Teo, with his airbender's spirit), and as such may have been involved in some way.

I'm very curious about Pema's past. We don't know much about it other than the fact that Pema confessed her love for Tenzin and he left Lin for Pema. Wonder how old she was at the time cause she's 16 years younger than Tenzin. So she was 25 when she had Jinora... I'd like to think that Aang attended their wedding, but I dunno. Pema would've been very young.

Aang was at his youngest son's wedding and no one can tell me otherwise.

We just need to see more of the Air Family in general. I'd absolutely love to get a look into Pema's past (although I'm not holding my breath), but I'll settle for not getting it if it means keeping my Teo Lee headcanon intact. I've never been this in love with a headcanon before. It's actually frightening how attached I am to the idea of Pema as their late-in-life surprise youngest daughter.

And Teo Lee would be Teo/Ty Lee I'm guessing? Interesting idea, what with the Ty Lee having Air Nomad speculation...

Yeah, Pema being their late-in-life daughter seems to be a well-liked speculation.  Or it does here, anyway.

It is indeed. It's an oddly addicting idea the longer you think about it. His pragmatism and free spirit combined with her bubbliness and spirituality just seems to work. They're just this unlikely pair of Almost Airbenders with a great deal in common once you get past the surface layers. And I love the idea of them being Pema's parents. It's very fitting and a lovely parallel to draw.

OMG! Do you know what should totally happen? My headcanon is that Pema can KICK BUTT. There should totally be an episode where she fights (the reason doesn't matter cause it'd be awesome) and everyone would be like O_O and Pema would be like "Daaaaaang straight!" She seems like the nurturing/mothering type, but I'd love to see a different side of her. An AWESOME side of her!

I've always suspected that Pema was actually a secret badass. I mean, the whole time we've known her she's been pregnant so we haven't gotten to see it... but it's pretty safe to assume that she was well-trained in the forms of airbending like all the Air Acolytes.  And as per The Promise pt 3, it's established that even without the actual ability to bend, these forms still work pretty well as a form of contact martial arts in and of themselves (no duh).

So we need to see Pema just all of a sudden whip out the badassery and kick butt and save everyone.  And then Tenzin can just be standing in the background stroking his beard like



"Yep. That's my wife. That there is myyyyy wife."  *smirk*

Personal headcanon:  By the time Korra and Mako crashed that rally in the finale, most of the chi-blockers were terrified of Pema.

We all know Tenzin took lessons from Uncle Wang Fire Sokka when it came to How To Properly Stroke An Impressive Beard.  Heck, his entire facial hair design was probably inspired by good ol' Uncle Sokka...

I could see Sokka being a bit of a sex symbol after becoming famous.

Maybe a little awkward when said sex symbol is your uncle but yeah.

He definitely had the makings of one in ATLA the way he had that poetry club swooning.

I love how intentional those beards and beard behavior is. A little aside to the fandom, as well as the obvious genetics and family traits.

I have to admit I gotta warm up to a BA Pema, but I sure agree she is the kind who won't take any guff from people, especially Tenzin. We saw far too many "looks" shot directly at Tenzin (which SHE passed on to Ikki...)

Needs to be more of this ship in book two. I also don't get why they had to throw Linzin in...all it did was create unnecessary drama and flames.
