Character Description: Toph Bei Fong

Toph is a 12 year old blind Earthbending master. She is also known as the one and only child of the rich Bei Fong family whose symbol is a flying boar. Her parents are very protective of her, mainly because she is blind. But despite the handicap she is a very talented Earthbender. She kept it a secret from her family as well as her Earthbending teacher, Master Yu. She enters in a tournament called Earth Rumble, under the name of The Blind Bandit.

At this time, Aang and his friends discover Toph at the tournament when she wins, keeping her title of champion. Aang was looking for an Earthbending teacher, and while watching her performance he believes she is the one. Then, while the host is calling for volunteers to go against the new champion, Aang challenges Toph and easily beats her with his Airbending skills.

Toph then leaves the arena not giving Aang a chance to speak with her. Later on, Aang finds Toph at the Bei Fong estate and tells her about his adventure and his hopes of finding an Earthbending teacher. But before she can make a decision, both she and Aang are kidnapped by the tournament wrestlers.

The kidnappers demand a ransom from Katara, Sokka, Master Yu, and Toph's father. But they only release Toph, and announce that they will be taking Aang to the Fire Nation. Katara then begs Toph to help them save Aang. Her farther disagrees and claims that his daughter is small and helpless, and not able to help them. At this point, Toph then proves that she is no where near helpless as she steps forward and defeats the entire tournament stable by herself.

Master Yu is speechless when he sees Toph's amazing Earth skills, while her father, Lao, stays silent. Later that night, Toph tries to reason with her parents and demands that she should be able to live like any other normal kid. And also, hopes they will not change their outlook on her. Toph's dad then says he does not change his love for her as a father, but has instead allowed her too much freedom. He then demands that the guards watch her all day long.

Then, just as Aang and the rest of the gang are about to depart, Toph appears and says that her father has allowed her to join the avatar on his journey. But, as we know, she is really running away from home, but Aang and his friends don't realize this and welcome Toph on their journey.

Toph's father, while realizing his daughter's absence, claims that the avatar and his friends have kidnapped his daughter. He states that he will give a large award to Master Yu and the tournament announcer Xin Fu to bring her back by any means necessary.

Toph can also Earthbend metal; she was the first to do so.

Character Description: Toph Bei Fong

Toph was a blind girl that was born to rich parents. She was constantly restricted from doing anything at all, and she entered the fighting arena as "The Blind Bandit." Toph is one of the best Earth-benders, despite the fact that she is blind.

She met the Avatar, and after some cold-hearted arguments, she joined the Avatar on his journey and taught him Earth-Bending.

The Avatar first encountered Toph in a vision, who saw that Toph was his future Earth-bending teacher. However, Toph's parents, with the impression that the Avatar kidnapped their daughter, sent two men to try and capture her and the avatar.
