Katara from “Avatar: The Last Airbender" 2005-2008
Katara is a teenage girl who discovers Aang, the Avatar frozen in ice. In the beginning, she did not know how to use her powers very well but throughout the entire series she trained harder and harder just to be able to help Aang and herself. She was strong, brave, and a fierce and often times bossy leader. However, she almost always knew what was best for the gang and helped Aang fight many battles.
She suffered much pain, losing her mother in a fire raid attack when she was just eight years old and was raised by her grandmother. However, she took on the role of mother for her and her brother at a very young age, as well as some other children in the tribe, cooking, cleaning, and generally taking care of everything she could since it was custom for women in her tribe for women to take on said domestic duties.
Despite her suffering, she became one of the strongest women in the show, entirely badass and beautiful to boot. She id definitely an amazing character.
