Okay, so let me tell you about this guy.
Originally, Toph’s original character design was a more brutish-muscley guy named Sud. They had thought this from the beginning, but instead they decided to make him a little blind girl because they are awesome like that.
However, they didn’t want to throw away the character so instead of Sud being Aang’s Earthbending Teacher, they made him Roku’s Earthbending Teacher.
Also, it is believed that they liked the character so much that they gave some of his characteristics to Bolin.
So, in a way… That guy in the beginning is Sud, Toph, and Bolin.
That guy is three generations of an Earthbending friend to the Avatar.
