N2 - Let f be a holomorphic germ on ℂ2 that fixes the origin and is tangent to the identity. Assume that f has a non-degenerate characteristic direction [v]. Hakim gave conditions that guarantee the existence of attracting domains along [v], however, when f has only one characteristic direction, these conditions are not satisfied. We prove that when [v] is unique, the existence results still hold. In particular, there is a domain Ω whose points converge to the origin along [v] and, on Ω, f is conjugate to a translation. Furthermore, if f is a global automorphism, the corresponding domain of attraction is a Fatou-Bieberbach domain.
