Khan is a non-bender from the Earth Kingdom and is a self-proclaimed 'weapons master'. He is a main character in the series.
Khan was raised originally in the Earth Kingdom to two Earthbenders who were soldiers of the Bending Nations army. They were killed in battle when Khan was a teenager and he moved in with his grandparents for the remainder of his adolescence.
Neither one of his grandparents were Earthbenders but they were extremely spiritual. His grandfather was considered a wise-man and a true weapons expert. He trained Khan with the tiger swords, Guan dao, katana, polearm, and chains. His grandfather attempted to instill wisdom into Khan through his training but unfortunately it didn't rub off.
After his grandparents passed away Khan left the Earth Kingdom and technically defected to the Republic State. It was difficult to sneak into the Republic and after Khan got in he set up a smuggling operation to get people in and out of the state.
He also chased bounties occasionally. His skill with the sword and the fact that he grew up in the Earth Kingdom prepared him to be able to hold his own against Benders in combat.
Khan is brash, arrogant, selfish, and a sweet talker. Despite his bad qualities he has proven that when you gain his trust he can be extremely loyal and is often a comic relief.
Khan is willing to do whatever it takes to make a buck. He's alluded to having a past full of mistakes he's ashamed to even speak about.
