The Air Nomad Avatar born before Aang, whose iron will during her lifetime created a peace that lasted long after her death. When Aang was nearly murdered in the Avatar State, it was Yangchen that explained to him the value of humanity and why the Avatar is continually reincarnated among them. She taught him that he would need to rely on his friends because his spiritual connection would be cut off once he returned to the Earth.

Aang summoned her spirit to him just before his final confrontation with Fire Lord Ozai, seeking advice. Though he didn't wish to kill a man, Yangchen believed that any teachings the monks passed on must be cast aside for the good of the people. Doing what's best and doing what's right are not always on the same path.
