I think that's a very elegant, succinct summary of Neytiri's role in the story. And it touches on one of the things I like the most about Jake and Neytiri -- their relationship is dynamic and multi-dimensional. There's a sense of balance and equality that is very appealing, and it is crafted in a way that feels natural. They both act as savior to the other, they learn from each other, and they are simultaneously each other's greatest strength and greatest vulnerability.
