By Neo Bahamut Part of the Republic City Renaissance continuity.

The following is a list of characters not important enough individually to be considered main characters. At least not yet. Though some have stayed on here since their "upgrade" due to not having character pages yet.

Republic City Police Department


  • Name: Chan
  • Description: Green eyes, round face with chubby cheeks and pronounced lips/nose, and dark side burns. Presumably balding, he has silver fillings in some of his front teeth.
  • Role: Cop, sergeant
  • Ethnicity: Earth Kingdom, Metalbender
  • Notes: Reads self-help books about improving specialized Earthbending skills. Has children, revealed in Book -1 to be (at the time) a mid-teenage boy and a preteen girl.
  • Chapters: Void=13, 18, 19 (mentioned), 24. Blood & Steel=7 (offscreen), 15, 16, 20, 22.

  • Name: Helen Barbatos
  • Description: Dark-skinned woman with red eyes and hair. Hair worn long. "Hawkish" facial expression.
  • Role: Cop, specialized in violent offenders.
  • Ethnicity: Earth & Fire, Metalbender
  • Etymology: Named for Helen of Troy and the demon Barbatos.
  • Notes: Frequently in trouble with internal affairs. Reputation for being aggressive with criminals.
  • Chapters: Void=11, 19. Grief=Main cast.

  • Name: Kane

  • Role: Cop, occasionally guards Thiera & Aroma when Euryale is unavailable.
  • Ethnicity: Earth, Metalbender

  • Chapters: Void=4 (mentioned), 9, 19. Grief=Main.

  • Name: Dong
  • Description: Man in his 20's with brown eyes & auburn hair in a tight topknot.
  • Role: Cop, "paper-pusher"/low ranked Metalbending Officer
  • Ethnicity: Earth, Metalbender
  • Etymology: Chinese for "excellent," a typical name that takes on double-meaning due to his attitude, & yes the pun with the English slang term for a certain male organ is very much intentional. I like to keep things classy, here.

  • Chapters: Void=13, 24. Grief=Main.

  • Name: Kali

  • Description: Pale skin, brown eyes, and dark hair that's usually worn in a loose, frizzy ponytail.
  • Role: Cop.

  • Chapters: Void=24. Grief=Main.

  • Name: Lian
  • Description: Pale skin, lavendar eyes, and jet black hair, of an unknown style save for a curl peeking out from her helmet. Relatively thin for a metalbending officer.

  • Name: Naakée

  • Name: Vyanna
  • Description: About 5'4", light skin with blue eyes & black hair drawn into a ponytail. Has a burn scar on her face.
  • Role: 2nd in command
  • Ethnicity: Northern Water Tribe
  • Etymology: Derived from the Sanskrit word "vyana," a "vital air that causes the circulation of blood."
  • Notes: Fights with dual dao swords, concealed in the forearms of her sleeves. Burnt by a bank robber, lacked money for a face lift, & unceremoniously fired over her disfiguring. Met the Purist Leader while on the edge of Kyoshi Bridge.
  • Chapters: Void=13, 15, 17-19, 20 (mentioned), 21.
  • Trivia: Named "Vanessa" in some of my other stuff.

  • Name: Ivan
  • Description: Tall, sallow, blue eyes & dark hair in a turtleduck style.
  • Role: 3rd in command
  • Ethnicity: Unknown
  • Etymology: Apparently "Gracious gift from God," but I literally chose it on a whim.
  • Notes: Accomplished archer, formerly with the United Forces, master of the new "Firebow."
  • Chapters: Void=20 (mentioned), 21, 22, 23 (mentioned).
  • Trivia: He was supposed to have an "Asianized" name, like Vanessa-->Vyanna, but I forgot about it. Unlike her, he has no prior history in other works, he's just a guy I made up based loosely on a minor Bleach character (who was named Ivan, until Kubo apparently said it was supposed to be Ebern), whose style I felt fit the setting.

Others: J'nani, a young boy with a bowl cut, and Lee, a thus far unseen man who frequently plays the Leader's assistant.

Miscellaneous Trivia: Keen readers may notice that Amon's outfit is not exactly accurate to Book 1: Air...but may not catch that it's identical to his early appearance in promotional materials. The implication being that he updated his wardrobe to fit his new status once he formed the Equalists.

Red Monsoons
