High Sister Halmeoni is a minor character in the fanon Avatar: The Legacy of Rong Yan, and also makes an appearance in Avatar: The Legendary Ku Tei, she the head of the Eastern Council of Elders, and a master in soundbending.


Born in the Eastern Air Temple in 757 BG, Halmeoni was born to an unknown mother and raised by unknown guardian nun. Like all Air Nomad children she was gifted an apple to gift to a sky bison doing so started her friendship with one. She was also taught how to steer one.

At the age of six, Halmeoni, had started her airbending training and excelled through the ranks and levels of airbending. She was a gifted airbender, and often used her bending abilities to impress her peers.

At the age of 19, she received her Air Nomad tattoos, afterwards she began to study to become a spiritual mentor.

Prince Charming

At the age of 20, a middle aged Earth Kingdom general had visited the Eastern Air Temple, for a few days. He needed to speak with the Eastern Council of Elders there for reasons of war, and needed to be sure that Water Tribes, were sure not to attack the Air Nomads.

Reason for it, was because, the Air Nomads from the Northern Air Temple, came to aid of Earth Kingdom soldiers who were camping outside Air Nomad territory. The Earth Kingdom battalion was found and were being attacked by a group of Water Tribe soldiers. The Air Nomads, knew of the war but could not allow destruction to their territory and allied with the Earth Kingdom to fend off the Water Tribe.

During his stay, before heading off to the Southern Air Temple the general met Halmeoni. The general was not married at the time, yet he swept the woman off her feet. They both had fallen in love during the short time he was there.

The general wanted Halmeoni, to come with him to the Southern Air Temple, as much as she wanted to she knew that the spiritual mentor studies refrained her from leaving. She stayed and saw her love leave.

She later realized that the general was none other than Avatar Ku Tei, she had fallen in love with an Avatar. After that she had never seen Avatar Ku Tei.

Head Sister

The head sister of the Council of Elders, within the Eastern Air Temple, had passed away of old age. Halmeoni, was 33 at the time and had already completed her spiritual mentor studies, and was a full-fledged spiritual mentor. At the same time she was voted to be the head sister of the council of elders.

Time and time, had passed as she awaited her love to return but he never did. Of course the Avatar had married. Though she never celebrated the Festival of Four Winds, she never bore children.

She grew old, and gave up on her love. News had later reached the Eastern Air Temple, of her long lost love's recent death. She was petrified from the news, and sobbed for days. She grew into depression because of it.

Sixteen years later, she had heard the news of the new Avatar. A boy who was born in the Fire Nation.

Meeting Him Again

During the Council of Elders meeting, Rong Yan was summoned and he met all the elders from the other three temples. He met Halmeoni, and she mentioned that she had met him before. When her co-elder Vakta, had opened her mouth and added that Halmeoni was very fond of Rong Yan's past.

The two elders left the room to argue outside.



Like all Air Nomads, Halmeoni, was born an airbender. She began to train in the 36 levels of airbending at the age of six. At the age of 19, she mastered airbending and received her tattoos. She is a gifted airbender, during her youth she excelled through the ranks of airbending training giving her the chance of getting her tattoos at the young age of 19.


When Aloi, had been brought back by Air Nomad to the Eastern Air Temple, the Council of Elders, along with Halmeoni were upset and worried that the little girl had left to the great city of Ba Sing Se.

Later they had summoned her because they heard strange loud noises, of course Aloi was gifted her tattoos for this great discovery. She was a unique bender of sorts, she was a soundbender. She taught Halmeoni and the other high sisters how to soundbend.

Since Halmeoni, was a gifted airbender like Aloi, she mastered soundbending pretty quickly. Though the other high sisters took time. It is known only to the Eastern Air Temple sisters that the Council of Elders can soundbend. No one outside the Eastern Air Temple, knows that they possess this ability.

Yet there's other Air Nomads in the world, who might've been banished from the temples, who have mastered this ability.
