After seeing her in action, however, he admits that she is the greatest earthbender he has ever seen. Toph's father hires him and Xin Fu to bring her home after she runs away.

Personality: Master Yu is a rather pompous and greedy man. He may be a genuinely skilled earthbender, but he enjoys money much more than seeing his students excel in their art. For the right price, he is even willing to team up with a thug like Xin Fu.
