Gai has spent the majority of his life in Ba Sing Se, living in a modest apartment in the middle level. He moved there when his parents split up as a child. He visited his mother often until she passed away. He went to school at the university and graduated in accounting. Moving from job to job while he continues to study to become a graduate of economics.
Personality and Appearance
Gai is very timid and self-conscious, hating situations where he has to stand in front of many people and do something. Absolutely terrified of conflict, he is passive by nature and a firm believer that all problems can be talked out rationally. Not by him though, it's too much pressure. He is quite handsome, but his nervous demeanor around women often results in him walking away from them very embarrassed. He chooses to wear sensible clothes that do not stand out in any way.
Relationship with family
Gai's relationship with his family is very complex, more so than Bao's, not understanding either of his parents. While he loves his mother, he never understood her calm stance on his father. She never spoke ill of him and often brourght him up light heatedly in conversations.
Gai hates spending time with his father as it more often than not results in him being humiliated in one form or another. He sees his father as a jobless lay about and is shocked as to how Anansi kept himself so well kept and even paid for his mothers treatment. He had no idea his father is a spirit and didn't believe Bao until he showed Gai his own spirit abilities by taking him to the other side of the planet.
He and Bao have a strained relationship. Gai gives Bao no special treatment for being the Avatar, also being the only person in the world who calls Bao on his nonsense often resulting in the two having a heated argument. Gai actually forgot that he had a brother due to the lack of contact the two had (a fact he is both glad and sorry for).
Gai is a non bender, he has no fighting skills or capabilities beyond flailing his arms wildly. However, he does have a lot of real life experience and knowledge that his brother doesn't, though that rarely helps him. Gai is an amazing singer but hates singing in front of people.
