The Duke and Toph theory by MoonChild419 The Duke and Toph theory by MoonChild419
I’ve had this theory in my head for a while now about who Lin Bei Fong’s father is. It’s not Tokka, Toko, or even Taang. This is probably way out there but it’s just a theory. It’s Toph and The Duke (I can’t make shipping names). Here’s the little evidence that I have….

-Nobody would just offer their helmet (or another personal item) as a puke bucket for someone that they don’t like.

-He even comforts her while she’s using his helmet as a puke bucket.

-After the war is over they meet up (they are cute together ^_^)


Like I said this is probably way off from what’s really true, but one can guess.

That was also my thought when I saw them together. There is not much of evidence, but it's still a better theory than Toko, Tokka, or Harutoph (no offense to those who ship them)

I think it's better that the creators never confirmed who was Toph's husband - the outrage of the fans would be too big when it was just a minor character with little screen time.

I felt the same way rewatching the series. Also, how about The Blind Duke (since Toph is the Blind Bandit)?

This is what I've been saying!! It makes the most sense! Not to mention that Lin jumped onto a Mecha Tank and rode it like a wild hog monkey.

I think you may be talking about Love Potion #8? That wasn't the Duke it was a boy named Ohev. But, I agree, there's a high possibility that the Duke is Lin's father, I mean they probably didn't hug for nothing!!

This is what I myself am considerin​g a definite possibilit​y. The Duke is like a nomad, he travels with the Freedom Fighters, a group of orphaned/l​ost kids (Smellerbe​e, Pipsqueek, Longshot, etc.). This would make sense of his absence/un​known identity in the show. Also we now know that Lin dated Tenzin, so that makes the theory of Sokka/Aang being Lin's father a no--they would be cousins/ha​lf-sibling​s if that were the case. Then of course, we have the few shots of the Duke and Toph here that show cute moments together and therefore canon a possibilit​y. Obviously, there's no 100% guarentee this theory is correct; who knows what happened to the Freedom Fighters after 70 years (The Promise part 3 might offer some clues, still waiting on that till September, GRR :p), the possibilit​y of Lin being adopted is still out there (however, to me at least Lin has physical Bei Fong traits--co​mpare a picture of Lin with a picture of Toph's mother, pretty similar. Not to mention it seems Lin inhererite​d Toph's awesomenes​s)--but I think it's a decent, more likely one. Well, there's my two cents on this mystery of Lin's father.

I've always thought this pairing is cute. And they did spend a couple days/weeks together at the Western Air Temple; we didn't see much of them, but they could have spent time together.

Cute pictures. I like 'em.

Tuke and Tuko would be better than Taang and Tokka, though. I mean, if you think about it, if Taang and Tokka were the canon ships, then at one point Lin would've been dating her half-brother/cousin.....

i think you're probably right ... and i must say that (even though i am an AVID, vehement, and in some cases violently obnoxious Tokka fan until my dying day) that this is probably where the creators went and that Lin Bei Fong is the daughter of Toph and The Duke ... it would at least be better than Toph settling down with some random normal guy with whom we've never been introduced

i will, however, go on believing that Sokka is the Father until Bryke specifically say otherwise ... even then i'll probably resist and claim they were drunk, high, drugged, and violently cohersed into claiming anything other than Tokka as the greatest OTP of the entire Avatar Universe ... then even if i begin to believe that they were not so swayed and Bryke were in fact in control of all their mental faculties, i'll probably concoct some crazy scenario where Sokka died early saving Toph in some glorious manner where they confess their love for each other during his final moments of life and that Toph actually has a virgin birth due to the fact that their Steampunk Tech made medical advances to allow Toph to make a female clone with Sokka's DNA and thusly have a virgin birth with who would become the next Worlds Greatest Earthbender

*sigh*

yeah ... i know

i'm crazy

Toph would never hug someone to show regular affection. She'd punch them in the arm. I think you're right! The Tuke! Or The Doph!
