Chen Grew up in a small lawless town on the outskirts of the Earth Republic where he lived in an old abandoned temple along side Six other boys and there Adopted Father a man simply known as Yūn who taught them from a very young age how to fight and defend them self in this lawless town after his parents abandoned him due to them feeling they wouldn't be able to take care of him as they were barely getting by them selves. For the first eighg Years of his life growing up was very hard on Chen as he lost most of his Adoptive family to sickness or in Yūn's case murder leaving him and his four year old younger brother to fend for them selves and while their adoptive Father left them enough Money and a place to call their own so at the age of Nine Chen turned to life of Crime while nothing major like Murder or Arisen he Joined a group of older boys and Stole/robbed from stores and People and on small occasions sold what the older boys called "Medicine" that tore apart other Family's.
It wasn't until one of his "Medicine" runs went bad and he was caught by some older boys who cornered him demanding he hand over all his belonging, where he first showed signs of earthbending as when he was cornered and beaten he desperately wished he had some way of defending him self and in his angry state bent the earth around his body before pushing it outwards knocking all his attackers out. After that incident Chen would go on to use his bending to help with his "Business" until he accidentally robbed a firebender who didn't take it likely and tracked down and attacked both Chen and his brother setting their home on fire which resulted in the death of Chen's brother and Chen gaining his cold and disheartened personality.
Following the attack Chen spent the next few months recuperating and getting used to having only one arm. After recovering He spent the next few years traveling the world learning all he could before eventually coming to Republic city due to the wonderful things he heard about it and because of a request of a friend.

Chen s very calm, tranquil and intelligent individual who is noted for being a creative thinker and an always calm person even in the most dangerous of circumstances. He appears to hold a very nonchalant and apathetic attitude, but is always on the look-out for anything that may threaten or hurt the people he cares for.
He is known for his quiet and subdued nature. Summed up in one word, it would be "stoic." and rarely, if EVER, shows his emotions, though he still has them. He prefers to sit quietly and contemplate on anything of interest, as opposed to some of his close associates who are more outgoing. When socializing, he has a calm, almost monotone-like voice when talking. He is a truly dedicated individual, willing to go to extremes to reach his desired goals, whether it be diving off a steep cliff or spending hours in a sauna. If he believes the end result is worth the hard work, he goes for it without any complaining. Because of his years of learning how to master his bending, He has developed a willingness to fight whenever necessary even if he doesn't always appear so.
Despite the nonchalant and apathetic attitude atmosphere that surrounds him, Chen genuinely cares and loves his friends, believing strongly in the power of loyalty. He has ended up treating the younger members of his group in a manner similar to that of a fatherly or Brotherly fashion which results in many of them referring to him as big brother Additionally, Chen believes in doing his best, giving it his all in anything he does and naturally expects others to follow his lead, of course.

With his unique sharp red ringed eyes, thin eyebrows and his attitude one can easily mistake him for one from nobility.

His attire consists of a Long sleeved black undershirt underneath a emerald green and yellow high collard sleeves jacket on his arms are a pare of black opera gloves which are covered by golden arm guards that cover most of his arm. His lower body consists of a pair of black pants held in place by a emerald green colored sash which is worn in a similar fashion to a waist cloth.
