Katsuo Daichi was born from a poor family in the Lower Ring, since quite some time, his father, Kenji Daichi; decided to give up on war after a huge failure during a battle and decided to follow his ancester's skills of Earthbending to create sculptures made of stone and metal.
Although highly appraised by the market, Kenji couldn´t keep up with the demand, and as the head of his family of 4 members, he couldn´t help but to teach his oldest son, the 10 years old Kenji; earthbending to help with the family´s store.
Due to his military background, Kenji had a strict but disciplined rutine that started before the sunrise and finished just after the sunset. Such rutine allowed Katsuo to actually learn earthbending in a few years to a decent level... but denied him the joy of the transition that everyone has from childhood to being a teenage boy.
Time passed, and although Katsuo grew up to be a normal adult, he still spent most of his time helping his family´s store... constantly ashamed of his father's dishonor... hearing from customers from distant lands stories about different people, different cultures, and even different stones...
Such mixed feelings eventually lead him to leave his family's business once that his brothers were old enough to take on the Daichi's Gallery, to the place where his father had failed: to the Earth Kingdom's military, where he would test his skills as much as possible in order to restore the honor that he lost.
