Asami Sato (佐藤麻美 Satō Asami?) is a major character in The Legend of Korra, which aired from 2012 to 2014. The character and the series, a sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender, were created by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. She is voiced by Seychelle Gabriel. The series' final scene, indicating the beginning of a romantic relationship between Asami and the female lead character, Korra, was unprecedented in its representation of LGBT persons in western children's television.
Unlike many people in the world of The Legend of Korra, Asami is not able to "bend", or manipulate, one of theelements of water, earth, fire, or air. She is the only child of the wealthy industrialist Hiroshi Sato, who invented the "Satomobile" and whose company, Future Industries, is headquartered in Republic City. Asami is a trained engineer, skilled pilot and driver, and competent unarmed combatant.
Asami has been well-received with publications. Though many reviewers were content with her growth past being a love interest for Mako, some felt the relationship was not worth reviving. However, reception to her relationship with Korra was mostly positive.
