Kyoshi Warriors
Nationality Earth Kingdom

Played by Jessica Andres (Suki)

Kyoshi Warriors are the protectors of the Earth Kingdom. They wear green kimonos and are skilled warriors that use war fans to defend themselves against their enemies. The lead Kyoshi Warrior is Suki.

Their scenes were cut from The Last Airbender but still appear in behind-the-scenes clips[1] and the merchandising including the movie novelization and Happy Meal character cards: Suki and her Kyoshi Warriors came down the trees and saved Sokka and Katara from the Fire Nation soldiers, the roles originally played by Jet and his Freedom Fighters in the Jet episode. These deleted scenes were not included in the BR/DVD for the first movie, as M. Night Shyamalan had indicated in an interview[2], "I probably won't show the Kyoshi Warriors because I want to save them for the second movie, because I'm going to have to introduce them all over again." However, a few of them (not Suki) made a brief appearance towards the end of the deleted scene Talk to the Dead.
