Okay, I am re-doing the blog post since there is a new point to write about and my last one was quite inaccurate. So I am now going to be commenting on the fact that Hiroshi Sato is one of Amon's players. As it was suggested, Sato is a part of Amon's personal "team". There is an image of them together and it can be viewed here.
Hiroshi is also rich and clever enough to provide Amon with all he needs for the Anti-bending Revolution, but it is not known if he is doing it while knowing Amon's final intentions and trying to make the world a better place for his daughter, or he just has bad memories of benders from his past. But no matter the reason, he is probably not knowing what he's getting himself into and to what extent Amon plans to deal with benders. That can be confirmed by the fact that his daughter is a pro-bending fan, though I doubt that he would be truly happy that she goes to watch the matches.
Now to pick up on the subject of Amon's machine, a theory presented here. If there is such a thing, who would be better to design it than Hiroshi? He is rich and has designed the satomobiles, what seems to be a very famous car brand. And if he is designing Amon's machine, is he making weapons for the Equalists? For example Lieutenant's electric kai sticks, or Amon's suit. Was it Hiroshi that designed them? We'll find out in the Legend of Korra.

|There have been many theories of who Amon might be. I've heard Azula, Bumi and many others. But we can eliminate many of these quite easily. I am here to give you my ideas.
The first one started with Amon being dramatically kicked out of the Fire Nation Royal family, because he lacked bending skills, just like with Piandao. But, as possibly as this theory is, Zuko's ex-voice actor, Dante Basco, is voicing the one person related to the Fire Nation Royal family, and Amon has a different voice actor - Steve Blum. That, plus all the facts like: Zuko wouldn't do that, etc., may lead us to believe that my first theory can be disproved.
And this is why I was inspired to put another theory to the test. This one I find much more logical, and it is my current theory of who Amon truly is - Hiroshi Sato. What better than a millionaire non-bender with so much influence, and a hard child hood of poorness (it was possibly then when he was ignored/tortured by benders and that is why it possibly lead to hate)? His body shape also resembles Amon's - the pumped up chest; on top of that his eyes look strangely similar to the new villain's; and to finish my collection of ideas, I will add Amon's machine. Who can be better to build something of the kind than a person who knows how to and can afford doing so?
This is why I believe Amon to be Hiroshi Sato, and currently there is nothing to disprove my theory. Please comment and share what you think. I will ask you not to write of pointless theories as "Amon is Kanna", etc. If you have any of your ideas that you wish to share, feel free to do so!
