The Air Totems, also known as the Wind Totems, are a pair of mystical totems that were created alongside the five Totems of Zambesi against Mallus. Centuries later, the totem became a family heirloom in the Tarazi family that allows its users air manipulation.
One of the Six[edit source]
At some point, the six Totems of Zambesi were created in hopes of defeating the Time Demon known as Mallus, including the Air Totem. The totems were able to banish him into a dungeon, where he spent centuries finding a way to escape.
Family Heirloom[edit source]
Throughout the later years, the Air Totem fell into the hands of the Tarazi family, where they passed the artifact down the generation.
At some point, the Tarazi family was suppressed by the government and was forced to give up the Air Totem. During the process, Behrad Tarazi was killed in an escape attempt, with the family soon changing their names to "Tomaz" to evade capture.
In 2042, Zari Tomaz acquired the Air Totem from A.R.G.U.S. custody and escaped from the Legends of Tomorrow, who were attempting to reunite the six totems against Mallus. Tomaz soon joined the team, and utilized the totem against Mallus alongside the rest of the totem bearers.
While fighting Mallus, Tomaz, alongside the rest of the Legends, created a giant Beebo and rid the timeline of Mallus's influence.
This timeline with Tomaz wielding the totem was later erased when the Legends convinced the world of accepting mystical creatures. As a result, Tomaz never wielded the totem and her family was never suppressed.
While fighting Mallus, Tarazi, alongside the rest of the Legends, created a giant Beebo and rid the timeline of Mallus's influence.
Behrad's theft remained a secret until he invited Nate Heywood to a family dinner in 2044, with Behrad's sister, Zari Tarazi, realizing they have both been operating in the past.
When Behrad was killed in action against Atropos, Zari began to use the totem on her own and communicated with her original timeline self. She continued to wield the totem for safekeeping until the Legends could acquire the Loom of Fate abs bring Behrad back to life.
Eventually, Behrad was brought back when the Fates ruled Earth. Both the original timeline and current timeline Zaris were also brought to coexistence afterwards, with Zari Tarazi being the bearer of the totem. Unfortunately, the existence of the original timeline Zari and current timeline Behrad led to the latter's slow death. Zari then chose to give up on a life on Earth, and decided to remain in the World Between Worlds.
Behrad and Zari's sharing of the Air Totem soon became a seed for conflict between them, with Zari 1.0 deciding to split the totem in two, allowing both to be totem bearers at the same time.
When Nate Heywood decided to retire from vigilantism and live in the World Between Worlds, Zari 2.0 gave her totem to him.
- Aerokinesis: Air Totem bearers are able to create air vortexes and a strong gust of wind.
- Air Blasts: Air Totem bearers are capable of firing strong gusts of air in order to attack their opponents or defend themselves.
