Shuhon Island is the second largest island in the Fire Nation, east of Capital Island. When the noble clans held power in the Fire Nation, the island fell under the traditional influence of the Keohso clan.

Fire Fountain City is a prominent settlement on the island.[1]

History[]

Before the Fire Nation's foundation, Shuhon Island was dominated by at least one warlord regime. This regime was defeated by the first Fire Lord during the unification wars of the Fire Islands, but he allowed the warlord's family to continue governing the island; this family later transformed into the Keohso clan.[2]

Avatar Kuruk was known to visit Shuhon Island and meditate in the hills surrounding North Chung-Ling.[3]

In 295 BG, Avatar Kyoshi arrived in North Chung-Ling, where they met Nyahitha. The Fire Sage helped Kyoshi connect with Kuruk; however, in the town, tensions escalated between the Keohso clan and their rivals, the Saowon. Lady Huazo of the Saowon purchased properties in town, and hoped to provoke the Saowon into attacking her clan, and thus have just cause for war.[1] The following morning, a brutal fight took place in the center of North Chung-Ling after an inflammatory message appeared in the town's melonyam fields, championing Chaejin as Fire Lord.[4] Kyoshi later kidnapped Huazo as she planned to leave the island and rally other clans to their side in a succession war.[5]

North Chung-Ling was renamed to Fire Fountain City some time after the ascension of Fire Lord Ozai in 95 AG.[6]

In 100 AG, Team Avatar visited Shuhon Island. As Aang, Sokka, and Toph Beifong walked around Fire Fountain City, the earthbender began pulling a series of scams at Fire Fountain City's fairground. Toph eventually became infamous for her scams, and she had a huge bounty on her head. Katara attempted to run an even greater scam by landing Toph in jail and collecting a reward before Toph could metalbend herself free, but it failed, and both girls landed in a wooden jail before being handed over to Combustion Man. Aang and Sokka entered town to free Katara and Toph, and Combustion Man attacked. The girls managed to free themselves, and Toph's attack resulted in Combustion Man's chi being blocked, turning his attack against himself.[7]
