Ham Ghao was one of the most disliked men of the Sun Warriors. He was a gossip, and was viewed as the most annoying person in the tribe because he always seemed to know about everyone else's business. Several times, other Sun Warriors had secret meetings with the chief to discuss their dislike for Ham Ghao.
Ham Ghao joined the other Sun Warriors in bowing to Ran and Shaw, eagerly awaiting the masters' murder of Aang and Zuko, for which the chief chastised him. Upon witnessing the masters' acceptance of the two, Ham Ghao cast an angered look off to the side.
Ham Ghao was a severely disliked man, mainly due to his gossiping nature as he would always find out everyone's business somehow and spread the word. Ham Ghao also had no faith or trust in visitors to the Sun Warriors' ancient city. This was proven when he stated that he would have taken delight in seeing Aang and Zuko being destroyed by Ran and Shaw.
