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 and talk 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' killing 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.
