Aang and his friends first saw the fisherman's wife and her husband bickering on the dock in 100 ASC. She explained to her husband that a terrible storm was approaching, and it would be unsafe and foolish to go out fishing, which he chose not to believe. She refused to accompany him, forcing him to hire someone else for the job. Sokka volunteered to take her place after he heard the fisherman yell that he would pay his next help double and was hired on the spot. When the storm hit, she was worried about her husband because he had not returned yet. She sought Aang and Katara's help in locating her husband and Sokka. As Aang and Katara left the cave in which they were taking shelter, the woman declared that she would rather not leave the refuge in order to help her husband. Upon reuniting with her husband after a successful rescue, she thanked Avatar Aang for saving him and demanded her husband apologize for his distrustful behavior earlier upon discovering that Aang was the Avatar.
