Who was the Avatar before Kyoshi?

She was the Avatar before Roku. The major threat to the world in her time was a warlord named Chin the Great and he demanded control of Kyoshi Island (at which time was part of the mainland). She split Kyoshi from the mainland and made Kyoshi Island and killed Chin to keep peace. And it's kind of interesting to know that the person who does her voice also does June the bounty hunter's voice.
