Early Life

Book 2: Conflict

Introduction and Confronting the Past

Dao is first introduced when Singi, Jamyang, and Jiefeng stumble upon him, his son Guilin, and his troops out training in the middle of the day. Upon Singi introducing herself as the Avatar, Guilin, excited, begs Dao to be her earthbending instructor, which, after a moment's hesitation, Dao accepts, on the condition that she train most of the time alongside his troops, with only occasional instances of one-on-one-training.

The next morning, the group visit the same field of large earth coins that Singi, Jamyang, and Jiefeng visited the day prior, east of the future plains village. There, Dao instructs his men to take a moment of silence and remember that they are training so that should they ever need to engage in combat, they are doing so in order to uphold the memories of other earthbenders who perished in battle. During this time, Singi once again wanders to the skeleton she saw slumped against one of the earth coins and, upon seeing it, receives a vision of an elderly Wan in combat. Gasping, Singi doubles over, Guilin rushes to her side, asking if she is alright. While composing herself, Dao and Jamyang make their way over to the duo and kneel beside her. Dao states to his son that it isn't easy seeing the remains of someone who died in battle, and asks Singi if she can walk. Singi simply nods, and the group leaves the scene to go train.

The next morning, Dao aids in the search for Jamyang after having disappeared sometime overnight or at the break of dawn. He, along with Singi, Guilin, and Jiefeng, find a stoic Jamyang at Wan's skeleton. Jamyang requests for Wan to have a proper burial, and the group do so, Jamyang saddened but also at peace now that Wan has had a proper closure.

  • Dao's settlement is located in an open valley in the southern proto-Earth Kingdom, just south of the Si Wong Desert and west of where Tu Zin will eventually be.
  • Dao's wife and Guilin's mother, Ta Ying (塔影), is deceased in The Rise of Avatar Singi, having died from illness when Guilin was four years old. Dao refers to her a few times during the series, and notes that he still dearly misses her.
  • Were Dao an actual animated character, he would likely be voiced by Kaiji Tang, whose more notable roles include Owain/Odin in Fire Emblem Awakening & Fates, Sima Zhao in Dynasty Warriors 7 & 8, Wingul in Tales of Xilia, and Violet in Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
    • Tang's exact voice role which inspired his selection as Dao's voice actor was that of Looker from the Pokémon Generations net animation series.
