This article is about the gang of earthbenders in Republic City. For other gangs, see Bending triads (disambiguation).

The Terra Triad is an organized crime unit consisting solely of earthbenders that has been active in Republic City since at least 138 AG.[1]


Sometime around 138 AG, Suyin Beifong became associated with members of the Terra Triad, much to Lin Beifong's disapproval. Suyin and two boys were examining pieces of jewelry in the living room of the Beifongs in Republic City. As Officer Lin returned home, the three swiftly hid the valuables, claiming they fell off a truck when Lin inquired after their origins. Despite her sister's warnings about associating with triads, Suyin became involved in a robbery in 142 AG by driving the getaway Satomobile, which was promptly pursued by Lin after she received a warning from the police headquarters about the crime in progress. The three members involved were apprehended soon after, although Suyin's arrest report was immediately discarded by Chief Toph Beifong, who worried about the repercussions of having a daughter in jail. Under her mother's orders, Suyin left the triad as well as the city to live with her grandparents.[1]

Notable members
