It might be the pinky. What I did to draw the hand was take a picture of my own hand, but I guess the perspective was off and didn't match with Amon's pose. Foreshortening is what I really need to work on most. When I was working on this, like you, I was also kind of worried about the hand. Gotta fix this later somehow.

Amon reminds me a lot of Regent of the Mask from Ninja Gaiden 3: [link]

I'm just gonna throw my hat into the 'Who is Amon?' game before the show decides to say who itself.

First, I don't think Amon is 'energybending'. The only person we've seen do that is the Avatar, and the technique Amon is using doesn't produce the telltale glow. Instead, I believe he is using a different technique more akin to hypnosis. It is important to note that when he takes a person's bending away, he presses the center of their forehead, the location of the body's 6th chakra, the Light chakra. Remember, this chakra deals with insight and is blocked by illusion. More specifically, the ones we tell ourselves. Meaning, hypnosis could fall within the category of 'an illusion we tell ourselves'. What Amon is doing is implanting the suggestion that the person can no longer bend. They now subconsciously believe they cannot, and therefore lose the ability. They still can use it, but the mental block is preventing it from manifesting. Like when Zuko was torn up over his internal conflict and lost his firebending.

Secondly, who Amon is. Technically speaking, it could be anyone, and is likely a new character that Aang dealt with. But a more interesting theory I thought up is that Amon is Sokka and Suki's child. Amon is a master of chi blocking (which the Kyoshi Warriors, and therefore Suki, learned from Ty Lee), is wickedly smart (as much as he was a goofball, Sokka had a brilliant mind), has an excellent grasp of technology (Again, Sokka's influence), no doubt has wealthy connections and a wide range of resources (it's likely Sokka invested in the inventions he and the Mechanist co-created), and most importantly, seems to not only hate the Avatar but benders in general, preferring the power of technology to that of natural bending ability (an opinion which Sokka exhibited numerous times, even tho they were usually in jest). This does not mean that Sokka and Suki hated benders, but if you look around Republic City, we have yet to see one monument to either of them, even tho they were highly important historical figures. Instead, who gets all the credit? The benders of the group. If your father and mother busted their asses in a revolution, to the point that the revolution would have failed without them, and then history brushes them aside because they don't have magical powers, would you be a tad pissed, even if they weren't? You bet you would.

So, there we go. My theory. Amon is the son of Sokka and Suki and he is not energybending, he is using self-shackling hypnosis. Any thoughts?

No for the first question, and of course for the second!

That was a really good prediction, by the way.

This guy rustles my jimmies! I keep wondering how he really got the ability to take bending powers away. He said spirits, but could it have been a lion turtle? Guess we'll have to wait. Awesome pose and style, btw.

Are those really his eyes or are they part of the mask? I've never seen him blink, so I think they're part of the mask. But this morning, I was watching the old episodes and had an epiphany. What if he wears a mask because he made a deal with Koh, the Face-Stealer, in exchange for the knowledge of how to remove someone's bending? And the whole Firebender story is bull, just a ploy to get sympathy from the crowd? Koh is one of the oldest spirits. If anyone would know where to find that knowledge, it'd be him. >:3

Yea those are really his eyes. He closed his eyes in episode 3 when he explained that his face was taken from a firebender. You have to look closely but you'll see it.

aaah. that might shoot my theory down then. tho, the more I've been thinking about it, the more I feel that he's not really 'energybending' the people. There's no glowing skin that occurs like when aang nerfed Ozai. I think he's doing something else. Hypnosis maybe?

I agree. What confused me was when he said that he wasn't a bender & for him to all of a sudden have a bending power that only the avatar can possess. That's why I don't think he's energy-bending.

Aonon Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2012
Yeah. There's definitely something else at work here. Maybe he was just knocking out their bending temporarily so he could kill them after the rally? That would create the illusion of his permanent take-away power and get the crowd on his side. :\

The name is only one letter away from "anon(ymous)" and his actions (born from a certain sense of justice) are of questionable morality and he's wearing a white mask.

Am I seeing things?
