Born in the Northern Water Tribe, Nanuk was an only child. His mother had died a year afterward from drowning. His father had been so depressed by her death, he chose to move away from the Northern Water Tribe to Republic City. At first, times were hard. Yet beginning of the Citizenship Project brought a need for industry and leadership to the city. Nanuk's father was fortunate enough to earn an executive position for Sulin Industries.
Being as important as he was, Nanuk's father had little time to spend with his son. As such, he was mostly left in the care of a nanny. As he turned four, Nanuk began home-schooling. He didn't have an opportunity to play with the other children. Peasants, the nanny called them. Peasants! Nanuk was a special child. Studies were more important than friendship. As such, Nanuk stayed inside and studied most of the time.
For most of his early life, it seemed like Nanuk would be a nonbender, like most of his family. That is, until he subconsciously bended a bucket of soap and water up at the nanny, when he was nine. He really got punished for that! That is when Nanuk's father really started to take notice. Prideful of his son's new-found talent, he quickly scrambled to find Nanuk a waterbending instructor.
Nanuk went through various waterbending instructors: some of the city's finest. They all quit in fits of rage, claiming that Nanuk was unteachable. Perhaps he was? After all, the best he could barely lift a droplet of water before dropping it right back down. It wasn't until Nanuk met Huu, a gentle master, that Nanuk began to show improvement, albeit slowly. Then came the teenage years...
Being a teenager, Nanuk began to show a more rebellious side. Feeling smothered by his father's endless attempts to make him a master waterbender and pushing him to join the family business, Nanuk ran away.
An shy lad, Nanuk often has trouble interacting with other people. This natural awkwardness stems from his lack of friendship during childhood as well as his parents's general apathy. Despite this lack of confidence, Nanuk is a very friendly and optimistic fellow.
Nanuk is also a rather intelligent fellow, much more than he gives himself credit for. He seems to possess a great talent in numbers and facts. Along with this, he is a rather curious lad, always trying to find an answer to unanswered questions.
His timidity, however, has made him a bit of a coward. His poor bending ability definitely hinders any and all courage. Despite this, Nanuk has a fierce loyalty to friends and allies.
