Sha-Mo


Nationality: Earth Kingdom

Abilities: Sandbending

Job History: Leader of Sandbender Tribe, trader

Relationships: Father of Ghashiun

Episode Appearances: "The Desert"

Voice Actor: Bill Bolender

Growing up in the Si Wong Desert, Sha-Mo knew his way of life to be the only way, thus was quick to anger whenever outsiders accused Sandbenders of being untrustworthy, thieving people. When he witnessed Aang and his friends being attacked by buzzard-wasps, his tribe fought the giant insects off and offered the children help to pass safely through the desert.



Ghashiun


Nationality: Earth Kingdom

Abilities: Sandbending

Job History: Trader

Relationships: Son of Sha-Mo

Episode Appearances: The Library"
"The Desert"
"Appa's Lost Days"

Voice Actor: Paul McKinney

The teenage son of his tribe's leader, Ghashiun feels entitled to act however he'd like, which gives him the confidence to steal from outsiders that wander into the desert. While Aang and his friends were visiting Wan Shi Tong's library, Ghashiun ordered his men to take Appa. Toph tried fighting them off, but the sand made it difficult for her to sense where they were, as well as being a more difficult substance to bend. He later sold Appa to passing merchants.


His misdeeds would find the light when his father orders they help save Aang and his friends from buzzard-wasps, and Toph recognizes his voice. After admitting what he'd done, he greatly disappoints his father by living up to the stereotype associated with his people.



Sandbenders


Nationality: Earth Kingdom

Abilities: Sandbending

Job History: Traders

Episode Appearances: The Library"
"The Desert"
"Appa's Lost Days"

The harsh environment of the desert forces these people to wear cloaks and bandages many hours of the day to protect them from the beaming sun, as well as goggles to protect their eyes from the sand that twists in the wind. They are made up of several different tribes and traverse the terrain on catamaran-like wooden structures called sailers.
