Siam was a highly regarded member of the Fire Faction of the Shrikes. A skilled firebender and loyal warrior, she was personally selected by General Apepi to be Seraphine's mentor and firebending teacher.
Early life Edit
When the slave girl Umm, Siam's mother, found out that she was pregnant from her master, a Fire Nation nobleman named Asim, she was released by him in order to leave the city of Thebes, as they knew what kind of scandal the child of a noble and a servant would bring. With the help of a cabbage merchant, Umm managed to return to her home village of Qena, where she gave birth to a baby girl which she named Siam.
Even though she and Umm were viewed as outcasts in the more conservative Water Tribe village, due to Siam being a firebender born out of wedlock, Siam had a happy childhood; it was just her and her mother against the world, and she liked it.

Knowing the dangers of the road, Siam knew what she would find if she would go back to look for her, so she steeled her heart at that moment and ventured onwards to Thebes to find her father in hopes that he could help.
Siam arrived at the city the next day before noon, and started her search for Asim. She managed to track him down a few hours later, and wanted to introduce herself to him, but refrained as she saw two little children, a boy and a girl, run up to him. Asim lovingly picked them up and walked over to a woman who was clearly his wife, and gave her a kiss. Siam, seeing her father for the first time, just observed him from a distance. She got her change to meet him after all, when the ball his children were playing with rolled away and stop in front of her feet.
She saw that he was a good man, and she did not want to hurt him and his new family by imposing, so when the sun started to set, she
