How General How joined the Tourney

How was a top general, the leader of the Council of Five, and a longtime veteran of the Hundred Year War. Essentially being the supreme officer of the Earth Kingdom military and the primary military adviser of the Earth King, How's primary duty was to guard the Outer Wall of Ba Sing Se. However, he was also involved with the Earth Kingdom's war effort outside the wall, providing resources, troops, and intelligence to the generals located in other bases throughout the Earth Kingdom. A man of honor and courage, General How was proud to serve his kingdom in their war against the Fire Nation. Like the rest of the Council of Five, How was completely loyal to the Earth King.

After the recapture of Ba Sing Se, General How was reinstated as leader of the Earth Kingdom army. When Prince Eric and Ariel were visiting Ba Sing Se, he was assigned to babysit their daughter Melody but soon discovers she will have a potential like no other.
