Proud ParentThey threw me down roughly on my knees, my energy drained and my body aching from the electricity that had coursed through my body not too long ago.

MotherToph never saw herself as a mother. She never saw herself a kind, caring, or gentle. She was Toph. She was strong, rough, reckless, and daring. The complete opposite of a mother.
