Chaya was born in the Western Air Temple and raised with his big sister Yara. Growing up Yara was one of the favorite children of the monks, while Chaya was raised in her shadow. She showed the ability to airbend around age of four, but he was almost six. She was a quiet kid and never caused trouble, but Chaya did. They where both outsiders with kids her age, Yara for being the perfect monk and Chaya for failing to keep up with his sister.
As Chaya grew older he became aggressive and deceptive in response to his new environment and because of this the monks took his airbending training slower then the other children, furthering the gap between him and his sister and thus increasing these feelings of failure. Chaya pushed away his sister's offer for help wanting to surpass her on his own.
Around age 16, soon after his sister passed another airbending test a kid was bullying him by pushing him into the wall with some airbending every time he got up. This made Chaya snap and the young airbender delivered and sir swipe to the bully's neck, killing him. The monks where furious and fearful of Chaya and thus banished him from the nomads, to his great shock his sister decided to go with him to a new home. Republic City to which they traveled by boat and applied for citizenship.
Chaya is a very emotionally isolated and unbalanced young man. He loves to make other suffer as he did and is a very deceptive person. He wants to make this city be under the control of those strong enough to take it and has mixed feelings about his sister Yara. On one hand he is envious and angry at her for being a better bender than him and on the other he is grateful for giving him company.
Powers & Abilities
Chaya tries to use his agility to his advantage in order to dodge attacks instead of facing them head on like the monks taught him, preferring to use his enhanced agility than using his air sheild. However his approach to how to attack his foe is diametrically opposed to the monks' pacifist teachings. He almost exclusively uses air slashes to try to sever opponent limbs and heads, preferring to use his mobility to get close to his opponent to try to minimize the chances of them dodging such an attack. He will also use airblast to try to disarm armed opponents.
