While chided by Tonraq for her rashness, Korra, upon reaching safety, revealed the truth and offered her help to oppose Unalaq.
However, Tonraq refused her assistance, instead tasking her with getting the United Forces on the South's side.
Despite Korra's attempts to prove both of her parents' innocence, Tonraq was found guilty of treason and sentenced to death.
Enraged, Korra threatened to take Judge Hotah's life if he would not change his mind, and due to Unalaq's intervention, the sentence was reduced to life imprisonment.
Her hostility to her father spilled over to her mother when she tried mediating between them.
When Korra learned from her mother that Tonraq was approached to be part of a kidnapping attempt of Unalaq, she immediately assumed that her father had accepted the offer.
Korra bade her parents farewell before she embarked on her voyage to the city.
However, after confronting Hotah once more, she learned that Unalaq had orchestrated both her father's banishment and his imprisonment.Despite her anger with him, she did offer the rebels a chance to escape without consequences in an attempt to save her father.She was shocked to learn that her father was not part of the group and was deemed a traitor by the other rebels.Korra stated she would get him back but was later captured and brought to the same tent Tonraq was in after attempting to infiltrate the spirit portal.Tonraq expressed his sadness, telling Korra that he was sorry that he had failed her, but the latter did not relinquish hope, stating that they still had a chance.
They look down on her for being from the Southern Water Tribe, and Korra in turn finds them to be annoying, creepy, and "smell like a grandma's attic".
