character from The Legend of Korra

Mako (Chinese: 馬高; pinyin: Mǎ Gāo) is a major character in Nickelodeon's animated television series 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.

He is voiced by David Faustino. Because he is a firebender, Mako is able to create and manipulate the classical element of fire. Mako also has the ability to both create and redirect lightning.

The character was named in honor of the late Mako Iwamatsu who voiced Iroh,[1] a major supporting character, in the first two seasons of Avatar: The Last Airbender.
