In Avatar's The Legend of Korra, Jinora was a master airbender from Air Temple Island. Jinora was one of a few that could see and communicate with the spirits. She successfully fought the Equalists who attacked Air Temple Island, but more came, forcing Jinora and her family to flee. They were captured, but eventually freed, and later able to return home. Because of her spiritual abilities, Jinora guided Avatar Korra into the spirit world. She was captured, and trapped in the Fog of Lost Souls, until rescued by her father.
Jinora is an invented name, possibly derived from Jinorasa, a male Sanskrit name that means "Essence of Victory". In 2014, 9 girls were given the name.
