Name: Lu Ten Beifong
Nationality: Earth Nation
Bending arts/sub bending style [if applicable]: Earthbender (Metalbender, Lavabender, Sandbender)
Personality traits: Lu Ten seems to have inherited a mixture of personalities between his grandmother(Lin), grand aunt(Suyin), and great grandmother(Toph). During training or combat situations, he mostly maintains a very serious demeanor, trying his hardest to overcome the situation. At times though he'll slip out a joke or do something silly in the middle of a fight. Outside of training though, it's very easy to see Toph in him, and he's just a joker who likes to have fun. And his dedication to family and friends is unwavering. He'd die to save any one of his friends if it was necessary.
History: While many thought it wouldn't happen because she was too dedicated to her job and too tough, Lin Beifong finally found a husband who accepted and loved her for who she was; a man named Fong who'd come from Zaofu to join the Republic City police force after seeing Lin in action during the attack by Zaheer and the Inner Circler of the Red Lotus. He quickly worked his way up and caught her attention. They began to spend time together and it wasn't long before they fell for one another.
After a few years, Lin got pregnant. She and Fong remained in Republic City and started a family, and Lin opened her own branch of the Beifong School of Earthbending after retiring from the Police Force. She and Fong raised their kids in a loving, yet somewhat strict environment. And their youngest, Shang, set out on his own when he was 18 to see the world. It's clear he got that from somebody in their family. He finally settled down years later, and he had a son he named Lu Ten in honor of Iroh's friendship with Toph.
Lu Ten was born with a rare form of Albinism that caused him to have white hair and red eyes, but his family didn't love him any less. Lu Ten from a young age heard countless stories of Great-Grandma Toph, Grandma Lin, and Auntie Suyin; even stories about Opal and the others. This caused him to want to make his family proud, so he trained and trained and trained since childhood to make them proud of him. It turns out he was a prodigy, and soon became known far and wide for his mastery over seemingly all forms of Earthbending as he grew. He participated in tournaments across the globe, and even took his Pro-Bending team, the Beifong Bruisers to two championships.
(I'll edit his story once I work out how he and the Avatar are going to meet, or if they already know each other)
