Book 2: Earth
Smith-San is an old setter and closest friend to Smellerbee and Toph. He first appears with the two girls when GB stumbles in front of the wagon they were ridding in. The setter was the first to confront GB and the rest of the gang and seemed to know what happened to Katara when she showed up. Smith guided the group away as Toph got to work. He offers them a lift later on to Ba Sing Se and the group accepted his offer.
Smith for most of the time was quiet through the trip until they reach a renaissance in a nearby village along the way. Smith suggested they stop and rest so they can have some fun time. Most of the group happily agreed with him and they all went in. The fair was calming to Smith and made him feel young again. But as he was walking around, he suddenly spies Zuko in the crowd. He tries to warn Ty Lee but she was too busy having fun to notice him. Smith took fate in his own paws and confronted them both. Alam actually coward back when he saw him. Smith had a decent conversation with them until he saw Ty Lee had left. And he went off to get back to his post by the entrance. He shows up later when he stops Jerome from attacking Weed. He then explains that if anyone's a monster, it might as well be Jerome and not Kaibutsu. He then tells the giant to leave since he was now free and Kaibutsu does so.
Book 3: Fire
Smith doesn't do very much at first, just as a dog of a few words until Katara reveals her air-bending secret to everyone. He steps in and tells Korra to stop yelling at Katara and goes into a big speech about that it's okay that there is another person that learned more than one element. He even saids he thought that she was an air bender since back at the hot springs. He surprises everyone, including Katara, saying that she might be another Avatar entirely. When denied by GB, he saids a history lesson that states that every 200 years at least, 2-3 Avatars can be born through destiny, choice, or from a family line. He basically saved Katara from getting into deadly trouble.
He shows up later as Aang, Smellerbee, Ty Lee and Mai were fighting on the elevator car. He quickly rushes over and gives the group time to escape. When he discovers the cars hinges collapsing, he throws Mai on the wires and tells her to tell Aang to stay out of trouble. The car then falls with Smith, killing him by the burning water and metal.
