Headmaster of an upper-class school on one of the Fire Nation's outer islands,
the man known only by his title is extremely strict, enforcing strict discipline
among his students. Prior he to his current position, this man was a drill
sergeant in the Fire Nation army and imposes much of the harsh methods
he learned there within the walls of his academy. One of which is sending
any habitually disorderly students to what he refers to as "reform
school": coal mines. After Aang "beats-up" Hide, the Headmaster
comes out to the courtyard to confront him. When he sees his star pupil
laying on the ground he assumes Aang to be responsible and assigns a parent-teacher
conference. He however is tricked into believing that a disguised Sokka
and Katara are Aang's parents. Later in the episode, Hide leads the Headmaster
to the cave where Aang is throwing a dance party for his students. Inside
the cave, he and his guards attempt to capture Aang, but proves to be impossible
as the crowd of children all wear headbands to cameflouge Aang, allowing
him and his friends to escape.
The Headmaster appears in "The Headband."
A jockish student at the Fire Nation school Aang infiltrates in "The Headband." Hide
is the aggressive and jealousy-prone boyfriend of On Ji.
Upon seeing "Kuzon" and On Ji together after
the dismissal, Hide makes sure Aang knows that she is his
girlfriend by starting a brief confrontation, looking down
at what he identifies as some lesser boy from the colonies.
Following his performance in music class, Aang offers to
show an amused On Ji some moves during recess, which promptly
incurs the wrath of Hide. He attempts to pick a fight with
Aang, but he skillfully and playfully evades every attempted
blow, eventually getting Hide to overbalance himself and
fall over. This gets Aang into trouble with the Headmaster
for "beating up" his star pupil, resulting in
a parent-teacher conference. Later, Hide informs The Headmaster
of a dance party Aang is throwing. They attempt to locate
and capture Aang, but he manages to escape in the process.

Ms. Kwan is an elderly schoolteacher at an upper-class academy on one of Fire
Nation outer islands. Having grown up on the outer islands, which equate
to the upper-class suburbs of the Nation, Ms. Kwan is hard-nosed, no-nonsense
individual who fiercely believes in hard work, scrict discipline, and proper
etiquette. Ms. Kwan has been an instructor at the institution for over
forty years, and some of her star students have go on to become generals,
war machinery inventors, and even one member of the Rough Rhinos, Vashir.
After Aang is brought to the school, he is place in Ms.
Kwan class, where she assumes he is a new student from
the colonies in the Earth Kingdom. Calling him a slob,
she immediately instructs him upon proper posture and Fire
Nation etiquette. The following day, after having her class
recite the Fire Nation Oath, she assumes Aang was making
a mockery of the national oath and announces a pop quiz.
The first question asked for the year in which Fire Lord
Sozin defeated the Air Nomads' army. Perplexed, Aang points
out that the Air Nomads had no formal military, and were
defeated by ambush. Ms. Kwan, as well as the entire class,
is stunned by this statement, as such a fact had apparently
been erased from national history books.
Ms. Kwan appears in "The Headband."
A music teacher at the upper-class Fire Nation school Aang enrolls into in "The
Headband." He is a short, plump man who with a passion for music. When
Aang attends the teacher's music class, he is given the Tsungi Horn to play,
which results in a discordant outburst of sounds. The music teacher scolds
Aang for dancing while misplaying the horn, sarcastically questioning if the "hullabaloo" going
on in his feet is a nervous disorder. A confused Aang says dancing is a way
of expressing one's self. The teacher retorts that dancing is not conductive
to a proper learning environment, that young people must instead have rigid
order. Although he does make somewhat of an attempt to be understanding by
giving Aang permission to march quietly in place when the urge hits him again.

On Ji is a young schoolgirl at an academy on one of the Fire Nation's outlying
islands. Like all of her fellow students in the upper-class school, On
Ji grew up away from war and poverty. Even with her priviledged upbringing,
she proves to be quite kind when Aang (calling himself Kuzon) comes to
the school claiming to be a new student from the Colonies, demonstrating
to him on how to properly bow to their teacher. Once the schoolday ends,
Aang meets On Ji, who notices Momo and warns Aang to keep him hidden. Her
jealous boyfriend, Hide, seeing "Kuzon" and On Ji together makes
it clear to Aang that he'll have no one, especially some "colony trash",
messing around with his girlfriend. In band class, Aang tries to play the
Tsungi Horn but gets chided by the teacher for dancing. On Ji on the otherhand
is amused by the dance, and Aang offers to show her it during recess. This
promptly infuriates Hide, who unsuccessfully attempts to pick a fight with
Aang. On Ji is later invited to Aang's dance party where after being picked
out of the bunch, she shyly accepts Aang's offer to dance together. When
the school's Headmaster arrives to detain Aang, she is one of many who
puts on a headband to help Aang and his friends escape in the crowd.
