Lu Beifong was a prominent politician and earthbending master in the late 4th and early 3rd centuries BG. He was the head of the prestigious Beifong family.

History

Lu Beifong was the earthbending master of Jianzhu, who in turn taught earthbending to Avatar Kuruk.

Lu was married to Lady Wumei. She was an intelligent, vivacious women, beloved across the Earth Kingdom. Lu became more obstinate after her death, and more prone to influence from his chaimberlain, Hui.[1]

After Avatar Kuruk's death, Lu was one of many earthbending masters who tried and failed to identify the Avatar using the rituals of directional geomancy. Without Lu's permission, Jianzhu and Kelsang then tried to administer the Air Nomads' method of identifying an Avatar.[2] Even when that failed, Lu was in contact with Jianzhu and Kelsang as they raised a false Avatar, Yun, but he agreed to take a hands-off approach.

After Yun and his allies defeated Tagaka's Fifth Nation pirates, Hui persuaded Lu to host a celebration for the Avatar in Gaoling, just after Yun's death and the disappearance of the true Avatar, Kyoshi. Lu greeted Jianzhu and Hei-Ran at the party, though did not inquire as to the Avatar's presence. He was informed by Hui that Yun and Kelsang had left for a nomadic journey of self-discovery. Lu was severely annoyed, addressing Jianzhu with biting remarks.[3]

Lu Beifong was not present at the mass poisoning of the conclave of sages where Jianzhu would have been removed as the Avatar's guardian.[4]
