This is going to be a popular subject of debate, so I thought it deserved its' own thread. I have a few of theories. All of which are probably wrong. It seems to me that Amon must have some kind of prior connection to one of the main characters on the show. If it's just some guy we've never heard of then what is the point? Here are some possibilities: 1) Amon is Ozai. Ozai gained the power to take away people's bending when Aang took away his. Maybe it also granted him some kind of immortality. It's not the best theory and it is a longshot. 2) Amon is actually the child of one of the characters from A:TLA. He is perhaps Tenzin's older brother who is a non-bender, and is motivated by sibling rivalry. It's also possible he has some kind of connection to Ty Lee, the only other person to have ever demonstrated any chi blocking abilities. But who trained Ty Lee? Perhaps we will find out. 3) Amon is actually not related to any of the main characters. (It's possible.) 4) Amon is exactly who he says he is. (Unlikely.) 5) Amon has some kind of connection to Koh the Facestealer. Maybe the dude wears a mask 'cause he got no face. (Odds: no idea.) What do you think?
