Anju is a smart, independent girl who won't mind telling you what's on her mind. She can quickly get angry at the smallest of things. She means well, for the most part, but hurt her and she'll hurt you right back. When it comes to fighting, she relies on Mahkah and her powers.
Anju was born in the lower ring of Ba Sing Se. Her father had left her mother before birth and after Anju was born, she was given to an orphanage. Anju grew up at the orphanage until she could start to earth-bend when she was five. She got into a fight with a kid and accidentally hit him over the head with a rock. After that she grew up on the streets. Stealing what she could, helping those that would have her, and taking small odd jobs a little girl could do.
When she turned 13, she decided to see the world. She snuck out of Ba Sing Se with the help of traveling merchant and traveled for a year.
She found herself at the Eastern Air temple. She then stayed there for a year, practicing her bending and learning all she could from the Nomads. Even though she was an earth-bender, they welcomed her because she had nowhere else to go.
While she at the Western Air Temple, she learned that all life was sacred. She also learned that size doesn't matter when bending. You can be small or large. The mind the bends, not the body.
Through all of this she made a friend. It was a wolf pup and named Mahkah. She found him on the way to the Air Temple one day from the woods surrounding the Temple. When she got to the Temple, the Air Nomads gave her the ancient word for Earth. During her time at the Temple, she learned that all life is sacred, and that one shouldn't take another life.
While at the Temple, Anju developed anger issues, lashing out at anyone who made her mad. She often got into fights with other initiates, Mahkah often helping her when the fights started. For this she was kicked out of the Temple. The nomads were kind enough to tell her about The Republic City.
Her and Mahkah traveled to The Republic City, and gained entrance. During the first few months they were their, the witnessed many things Anju didn't like. She saw how weak the police force was, they could do nothing to stop the constant gang wars.
During one particularly brutal fight between a police force and a few gang members, she got caught in the middle. She got hurt trying to get away, and the only person who tried to help her, was one of the gang members. After saying thank you and escaping from the scene, she went back to her place.
After the fight, she actually took a look around her, and where she lived. She saw how bad the people who lived there had it. She decided to seek out the gang member who had helped her. She managed to track him down after a few months of looking, and found out that he belonged to Faceless.
