Enraged, Korra threatened to take Judge Hotah's life if he would not change his mind, and due to Unalaq's intervention, the sentence was reduced to life imprisonment.Nevertheless, Korra was still determined to free her father, even suggesting breaking him out of prison, though Tonraq urged her not to as to prevent an outbreak of war.
However, after confronting Hotah once more, she learned that Unalaq had orchestrated both her father's banishment and his imprisonment.
Korra subsequently decided to enlist her friends in an attempted jailbreak, only to learn that Tonraq was being transferred to the North.
She was shocked to learn that her father was not part of the group and was deemed a traitor by the other rebels.
Distraught, Korra ran back to her parents, apologizing to them for the pain she caused, and Tonraq apologized in return for holding her back.
Later, when Korra returned to the Southern Water Tribe to close the spirit portals and stop Unalaq, her mother informed her the Southern rebels had been severely injured and her father had been captured by Unalaq.
Korra stated she would get him back but was later captured and brought to the same tent Tonraq was in after attempting to infiltrate the spirit portal.Korra's parents are caring and understanding of their daughter, and she seems to have a good relationship with them.They discovered she was the Avatar when Korra began bending water, earth, and fire at only four years old.After Korra lost most of her bending abilities to Amon, and Team Avatar traveled to the South Pole, Tonraq and Senna anxiously awaited alongside their daughter's friends to see if Katara was able to return Korra's bending, and they later witnessed with pride how their daughter successfully restored Lin Beifong's bending abilities.Korra's relationship with her father suffered tension when, at the Glacier Spirits Festival in 171 AG, she found out that it was he and Tenzin who made the decision to keep her locked up in the Southern Water Tribe compound.These feelings only worsened when Tonraq told her that he was banished from the Northern Water Tribe for destroying a spirit forest in an attempt to ward off an invasion by barbarians.
