Born to the strict care of a Non-bender Father and a Waterbender mother and raised along side his Harsh and demanding Earthbender Grandfather on a small island located to the North, Sushi had a rough and harsh if not slightly glamorous and luxurious childhood due to his family being more than well off in life as a result he never really needed much in life. It wasn't until at the tender age of six that Sushi first showed signs of inheriting his mothers bending heritage this incident happened when he wanted one of the freshly baked cookies his mother made but was unable to reach the counter top so getting frustrated he childishly threw a tantrum which caused the water in the near by sink to whip around knocking over the dish and causing the cookies and dish to fall to the ground the noise that it made brought his father into the kitchen to find out what was going on only to be surprised by the sight of his son waterbending. Following the incident his mother started to teach him all about his waterbending abilities while his Grandfather and father thought him how to combat with both a weapon and unarmed.

By the Age of nine Shusui became a proficient Waterbender for his age being able to control his bending with almost relative ease as well as a proficient fighter however all this came with the cost of destroying his childhood and rendering him socially inadequate due to his constant isolation from other people and children his age. At the age of sixteen and having learned all he could from his family Shusui was sent out to Explore the world and to master his Bending as well as to gain experience and to bring pride to the family, however due to his harsh upbringing Sushi dismissed his family's expectations and traveled the world doing what ever he pleased.

Over the next Five Years Shusui Traveled and learned numerous as well as honing his waterbending as well as making a name for himself and gaining allies up until his arrival to Republic City at the age of Twenty one hoping to settle down and layout his legacy in the city after hearing about the great Republic City numerous times on his Travel.
