A brilliant yet absent-minded man who always tries to do what's best for those he cares about. When a flood destroyed his village, he led his people into the mountains where they discovered the abandoned Northern Air Temple, and took up residence there. Through his genius, he adapted many of the monks' devices to suit a modern world, including advanced gliders and the elevator.

Unfortunately, the Fire Nation discovered them, and in order to spare their lives, the mechanist agreed to build weapons for the army. When Aang and his friends visit the temple, they find out about this arrangement and help to liberate the people by bombarding the Fire Nation forces when they attack. Though the Fire Nation leaves them in peace, they are able to make use of many of the mechanist's plans and upgrade various creations he was responsible for.

To balance this, the mechanist assisted in the invasion preparation by designing multiple attack vehicles used in the raid, which was absolutely critical in the operation.
