Aang: I don't understand. Why didn't you free yourself? Why did you surrender when Omashu was invaded? What's the matter with you, Bumi?
King Bumi: Listen to me, Aang. There are options in fighting, called jing. It's a choice of how you direct your energy ...
Aang: I know! There's positive jing when you're attacking, and negative jing when you're retreating!
King Bumi: ... and neutral jing when you do nothing!
Aang: There are three jings?
King Bumi: Well, technically, there are eighty five. But, let's just focus on the third. Neutral jing is the key to earthbending. It involves listening and waiting for the right moment to strike.
Aang: (with dawning understanding) That's why you surrendered, isn't it?
King Bumi: Yes, and it's why I can't leave now.
Aang: I guess I need to find someone else to teach me earthbending.
King Bumi: Your teacher will be someone who has mastered neutral jing. You need to find someone who waits and listens before striking.
(Momo jumps onto Aang's shoulder and chitters)
Aang: Hey, Momo!
King Bumi: Momo's mastered a few jings himself!

Relationship (Aang)- Bumi was a childhood friend of Aang's, and still recognizes him, 100 years later.
Relationship (Flopsie)- The Rabbit/Gorilla thing is particularly beloved to Bumi.
Power Loss (Bending)- All Bending requires the use of bodily-movements and forms. If a Bender's body is restrained in any manner, their Bending will be badly-hampered. Full entrapment will neutralize all Bending. Except for King Bumi, who can Bend WITH HIS FREAKING FACE.
Total: Abilities: 72 / Skills: 50--25 / Advantages: 19 / Powers: 61 / Defenses: 17 (194)
-It says something about a series when someone as completely balls-to-the-wall awesome as King Bumi is only ONE of the most awesome characters. He appears to be a touched-in-the-head senile old king at first, but turns out to be a canny strategist and wild fighter, revealing a super-muscular body and an ability to easily pummel Aang in one-on-one combat. When attacked by the Fire Nation, he reveals another strategic side by submitting without a fight, allowing his people to escape unharmed rather than be killed in a giant siege, and when captured and tied, he shows that he's the only Bender alive who can Bend without using hand or other major movements- he just has to move his FACE! By series' end, he joins up with the other "mentor" characters in the Order of the White Lotus, and helps defeat the Fire Nation ground forces.
-King Bumi stats up as a well-balanced character, able to use the vast amount of Earthbending tricks as well as anybody in the series (only Toph has more versatility, by virtue of "Metalbending"), and at a higher level of power- he's one of the few +10/+10 builds in a universe of very accurate fighters, which means he has a bit of a statistical advantage. He's strong, tough, wise, has a big bunch of Skills, and he fights like a perfectly-balanced PL 10 should, without altering his caps or trade-offs.
