Saru is an amicable enough kind of guy, he isn’t too mean and he isn’t too nice. Saru goes with the flow and lets stress and the like wash away under his cool demeanour. This doesn’t mean he does get overwhelmed or angered by certain situations, it just means that Saru is the kind of guy to not sweat the little things.
Saru doesn’t take any shit from anyone or anything, he just keeps going along with whatever he feels like doing at the time and most of the time that involves either wandering around wherever he feels like or helping people out as he sees them in trouble.
There are very few things that upset Saru, the first and foremost being people trying to manipulate or control him. Second is his dislike of government, this is mostly due to his upbringing in the inner district of Ba Sing Se and the level of closeness he experienced with the Earth Republic’s ineffectual government during his youth. Lastly is his irrational fear of flying lemurs, an odd fear to be sure but a fear nonetheless.
Born into the extremely wealthy Lài family in Ba Sing Se, Saru was raised to be an upstanding citizen of the Earth Republic, to believe in the democratic ideals of his home nation and to always strive for the betterment of the nation as a whole. Throughout his childhood Saru firmly believed in the ideals he was raised under and was a vehement supporter of the conservative element of the Earth Republic government.
Saru was highly educated from the moment he could utter a few jumbled words and soon he had become as knowledgeable as any man could possibly hope to be. When he was 6 he got into an argument with a fellow student and it eventually came to blows, an immature course of events if one were to consider the argument was about who could make the most paper cranes the fastest. During the fight Saru accidentally bent a small rock and hit the boy he was arguing with and knocked him face first into the ground.
With the advent of his bending Saru’s work load was added to, now not only was he to be educated as highly as possible but he was to also be trained in bending by the best instructors money could buy.
Saru was doing extremely well until he hit the age of 17, a special time for one of the Lài family as it was tradition for a youth of his family to go on a “journey” of self-discovery once they turned 17. Saru was eager to set out and left his home and all that he had known with enthusiasm and vigour, this was not to last…
Saru roamed the Earth Republic extensively during the tfour years that followed and what he saw changed him forever. Many of the smaller town and villages that dotted the territories of the Earth Republic were not looked out for and protected like he was raised to believe, instead they were left destitute and impoverished, unaided by the government they all lived under. It was during these travels that Saru felt that he had been betrayed by those he had placed his faith in and thus he decided to change his ideologies to that of a person actively opposed to government rather than merely untrusting of it.
