Bender type: Earthbender
Shan is tall, standing at 6'3, and he often can be seen in his uniform. He has an angular face and dark hair, cropped close to his skull save a long plait at the nape of his neck. He has dark eyes that sparkle with a mischief that conveys his young age, though there are already stress lines forming on his face from his workload.
Shan is a bit reckless, but he takes his job very seriously when he decides to turn up to it. When he decides to turn up to the office he a strong leader, level-headed and firm in his commands. He is a quick thinker and has a mind for strategy. Since his time in the Police Academy he has developed a system of judging people no on their economic background, but their personal merits.
Shan comes from a long and distinguished line of metalbenders in Republic City. His mother and father were both earthbenders, so when he was born he was expected to also be an earthbender, and he did not disappoint.
By the age of five Shan had mastered most techniques, and his parents sent him to be trained by his grandfather, a metalbending master. He was arrogant and proud as a child, always putting himself first. He leeched off his family’s wealth to indulge himself in riches and glamour and scorned those who could not afford his lifestyle. Needless to say, his family was disgusted. Not long after his eighteenth birthday, Shan finished his training with his grandfather, and his parents unexpectedly sent him to the Police Academy where they hoped he would learn some respect.
For three hard years Shan trained with the Academy. At first he despised it; there were benders of all classes there, but over time he grew to see people not by their economic, but by their personal merits. With the change of attitude his life in the academy improved greatly. He excelled at the mental challenges his superiors gave him, and he was physically magnificent.
Once Shan graduated from the academy he became a fully-fledged member of the Police Force and served the city well. His quick-thinking and street smarts lent themselves kindly to him, and his superiors often noticed his skills. Slowly at first, Shan climbed the ranks of the force, and before he knew it he was appointed the Police Chief following the former’s resignation. There was uproar from the community, damning the force for letting a man so young handle the city’s security, but Shan quickly rose to the job and wanted to serve the city well. Sadly he was unable to fix the RCPD's poor condition and the city continued to fall to ruin.
