Okay, so if an Avatar dies in the Avatar State, then the Avatar is gone forever.
So…if an avatar lost a limb during the Avatar State, say, an arm or a leg…would all the next avatars be missing an arm or a leg for the rest of avatardom?
If there was an avatar that lost a pinky in the Avatar State, would all the other avatars have one pinky? Would people be like “How did you lose that Pinky, New Avatar Bob?” and New Avatar Bob would be like “Freaking Avatar Korra lost a freaking pinky in the avatar state, so I was freaking born with no pinky. *shakes fist at sky* AVATAR KORRRAAAAAAAAA!”
Am I thinking too much into this or could this be a freaking thing?
