Asami Sato is the daughter of Hiroshi Sato and a main character in Avatar: The Legend of Korra. Though her father is in league with the Equalists, she recognized that his actions were wrong and chose to stand against him. She was in a love triangle with Mako and Korra, and was forced to watch as her boyfriend ran off after another woman. Following her father's imprisonment, Asami took over Future Industries. She remains good friends with Korra despite them both loving the same man and is generally very polite and sweet despite both her wealthy background and being the daughter of an Equalist.
She can't bend, but she knows how to fight using hand to hand combat, and also using an electrified glove taken from her father. She is also an excellent driver, capable of piloting anything from a moped to a Satomobile to a biplane.
- Hiroshi Sato (Father): Joined the Equalists and fought against Team Avatar, later reconciled in Season 4.
- Varrick: Betrayed her and tricked her into selling controlling interest of Future Industries, though they later reconciled during the fourth book of The Legend of Korra.
Asami is a non-bender, meaning she cannot control any elements. Asami is however an experienced fighter. She is shown to be proficient in hand to hand combat, however she often uses devices and machines to augment her abilities. Asami is an experienced pilot of Sato Industries technology. As Sato Industries is the leader in technological development, this has led to Asami being able to adapt to nearly any form of use of technology, from cars ,to tanks, to construction suits. Asami commandeered a shocker glove from the Equalists rebels and continued to use it as her default weapon. The Shocker glove delivers a powerful jolt to anyone it touches and often stuns and knocks out anyone Asami uses it on.
Asami was raised to be a shrewd business woman by her father and as such she takes concerns involving Sato Industries very seriously. After her father was shown to be a radical Equalist supporter and was arrested, Asami sees her father's business as one of the few parts of his work that can be put to good use. Asami treats Sato industries as the main part of her family legacy that can actually be redeemed. Asami started out as girlfriend to Mako but by the last part of the show it is confirmed that she and Korra become girlfriends, thus Asami is officially bi-sexual. Asami was supportive of Mako as his girlfriend but was shown to be rather temperamental, taking anything Mako did with heavy weight but often trying to live with any such issues. Asami and Mako's relationship took most of its hits from Mako being unclear if he had truer feelings of love for Korra or Asami and Asami became very sensitive to changes in Mako's attitude when Korra was around. Asami tried to find out where she stood but Mako, not wanting to let Asami down, often tried to shake off his feelings for Korra to be loyal to Asami, Asami did pick-up on the issue though and the two finally broke-up for good due to it. The series ends with Asami and Korra implied and later confirmed to have formed a relationship but it is unclear how the two would get along.
