Estos avatars están creados genéticamente de DNA humano mezclado con DNA de los nativos de Pandora, los Na ́vi. Ya en su forma avatar, Jake puede caminar otra vez. Ha recibido la misión de infiltrarse entre los Na ́vi, los cuales se han convertido en el mayor obstáculo para la extracción del mineral. Pero una bella Na ́vi, Naytiri, salva la vida de Jake, y todo cambia. Jake es admitido en su clan y aprende a ser uno de ellos, lo cual le hace someterse a muchas pruebas y aventuras.
