Though nonbenders also possess the bending gene, they lack the ability to channel their chi into affecting the elements around them, due to the gene's dormancy. Apart from the restriction of bending that this causes, the dormancy of the bending gene in nonbenders also prevents them from experiencing a true connection to their element; nonbenders will otherwise remain unaffected by a full moon or Sozin's Comet.
