Biography for Shyu

Affiliation: Fire
Voiced by: Michael Yama

Backstory: Though Shyu did not know Avatar Roku personally, his great grandfather did. He comes from a long line of Fire Sages, and his ancestors remained loyal to the Avatar rather than the Fire Lord.

Powers: Master firebender; Fire Sage with limited spiritual abilities.

Personality: Wise and kind, Shyu risks everything to help Aang contact Roku. Fiercely loyal and completely selfless, he knows that he is the only Fire Sage who has not been corrupted and still acknowledges the need for balance in the world. This conflict of allegiances ultimately gets him in a lot of trouble with his nation's military, though it would appear he does not regret his choice to help the Avatar.
