Bender type: Earthbender
Brown short hair, sky blue eyes, and fair skin. He is well built without being bulky, and prefers to wear loose clothes with no sleeves as well as a white headband.
Horu is joking, carefree, and yet very insightful outside of combat. In combat he becomes serious and strategic preffering to control the environment around his opponents to defeat them. He uses a lot of feints and unorthodox tactics. He does not enjoy killing but does what he must to make a living.
Horu was born in the southern Earth Republic to Xing and Niuru. Xing was a nonbender born and raised in the Earth Republic as a farmer while Niuru was a waterbender from the Northern Water Tribe, she had always had a gift with healing but also preferred to use plant based remedies which was not viable to obtain in her homeland. As such she traveled southward into the Earth Republic where the plants she preferred where more plentful and started a life as a healer in a rural area in the southern Earth Republic. Eventually she fell in love with Xing and learned how to plantbend to help with her herbs and his crops and they eventually had a child they named Horu.
Having his mother's eyes and her more slim body type as well as his father's hair, skin tone, and muscle. Horu's mixed heritage was obvious to all who saw him, some of the elder members of his village disapproved of such things but they did not give him to much trouble over it. When Horu was 7 he had attmepted to mimic his mother's bending...only to send a rock flying into a window instead. With the village scarce in benders only one of the elders was an earthbender and he refused to train Horu on account of his mixed heritage. So instead of learning combative bending he used his mother's waterbending forms to learn how to do things such as tilling the earth with is bending.
When Horu was 11 his village was attacked by bandits, though the villagers eventually pushed them back, his mother was killed and his father was crippled in the attack. When Horu was 13 his father passed away and the elders threw him out of the village, Horu then devoted himself to revenge on the bandits that had ruined his family. Horu travelled to many towns and cities, trying to find information on the bandits, during his travels he devolped a unique hybridized form of earthbending mainly based on earth and waterbending principles, but also including a decent amount from the airbenders he encountered and some from the few firebenders he met. It turned out to be decently succesful as he won a couple of earth rumbles with it, and as the search for the bandits continued he kept honing his earthbending skills.
Eventually at age 17 Horu found them but there where to many for him to take alone, so he hired some mercenaries called the Black Falcon in order to help him wipe them out, and they where succesful. Afterwords Jin-le (the leader of the Black Falcon) was impressed with Horu's fighting skills and offered him a place in their outfit. Horu accepted and he spent a couple of years as a mercenary, eventually the Black Falcon fell apart do to lack of work but Horu kept doing independent contracts uder the alias of Black Falcon before he heard of the turmoil in Republic City, realizing he could find some good jobs there he decided to leave for the city and enroll in the citizenship program, making his way by foot.
