Sister Iio was an Air Nomad nun, as well as the Mother Superior of the Eastern Air Temple during Aang's childhood. She was unaffected and cheerful, and her opinions were respected by those in her care.[2]

History

In 6 BG, Iio guided a group of young Air Nomad children, including Aang, through the tradition of choosing a flying bison. Leading them to an open area, she gave each of the children an apple to lure a bison calf and advised them to choose carefully when picking out their bison, stating that "a sky bison [was] a companion for life."[1]
