Suki was the eldest member and leader of the all-female Kyoshi Warriors of the Earth Kingdom's Kyoshi Island. A sect established by the Avatar incarnation of the same name. She is an exceptionally skilled fighter and Sokka's current girlfriend. She and the Kyoshi Warriors encountered and fought Azula in Book Two to which they were defeated and imprisoned but Suki was liberated by Sokka and Zuko in Book Three, and remained with the protagonists thereafter and joined Toph and Sokka to disable the Fire Nation's air force. The other Kyoshi Warriors were released after the war and allowed Ty Lee to join them.

Suki and her fellow Kyoshi Warriors captured Aang and his friends for intruding on Kyoshi Island, assuming they were Fire Nation spies. Suki interrogated the group, threatening to throw Sokka to the unagi after he made a sexist comment about being kidnapped by a "bunch of girls". Once they learned that Aang was the Avatar, however, she and the village quickly accepted them as guests. Initially offended by Sokka's somewhat chauvinistic attitude, she paid him back by repeatedly humiliating him in combat training. She later even forced him to dress in full female warrior garb when he asked to train with her, but she was eventually attracted to him once he admitted his mistake. The two bonded over sparring matches and, before parting, she kissed Sokka on the cheek, telling him that even though she was a warrior, she was also a girl. She and the other warriors of Kyoshi, inspired by Sokka particularly, later departed the island to fight in the Hundred Year War against the Fire Nation.
