Toph Beifong, a blind earth bender, and later metal bender is the only daughter of the Beifong family. They are known as one of the richest, if not the richest family in the whole world. We will answer the question of if Toph Did Marry anyone at some point.

Several stories have gone on about what happens to our favorite characters after we last see them on the animation series. There are comic book issues that address some of these concerns but not directly with respect to who Toph married. 

As far as we know, Toph married no one. Her two children Lin and Suyin, were born out of wedlock. We do know that Lin’s father is a man named Kanto. We recall Toph saying in the Legend of Korra series that it didn’t work out between them. This issue caused animosity between Toph and Lin.

Having Lin Beifong 

Toph gave birth to Lin twenty years after the conclusion of the hundred-year war. Her daughter inherited her Earth bending abilities. She also trained her to master metal bending and even seismic sense. This is a skill that Toph perfected due to her lack of sight. 

Although, Toph feels like Lin never really fully mastered all the key elements to these skills. Toph and Lin share similar personalities, and Korra even referred to Toph as an older and crankier version of Lin. Both of them can be blunt and stubborn per the occasion, and Toph proudly referred to herself as the original Beifong. 

The family, due to his Toph must have handled them growing up, eventually breaks apart. After twenty years of no contact, Toph and Lin found common ground and reconciled.

Father Talk Was Off Limits

Despite Toph’s good intentions as a single mother, she refused to discuss Lin’s father with her, which weighed heavily on her daughter. She felt that this was a way to protect her daughter from the harm she didn’t need to face. This did the exact opposite of what she intended, instead of what Toph aimed at, protecting her child. She sucked badly at parenting, probably due to her own parents and their horrible parenting. 

Despite this, Lin continued to have respect for her mother as the Chief of Police. She did however, maintain her anger at Suyin being the cause of Toph’s premature retirement. Their relationship became strained, and by 154 AG, they had ceased communicating with each other.

When they reunited by chance in 174 AG to save a captured Suyin and her family, Toph acted casually with her daughter. This inadvertently did a good number on her nerves. Lin finally unloaded on Toph after Bolin received an answer to the question of who her father was.

She blamed Toph for never knowing or caring why she angered her so much. As Lin stated she wanted nothing more to do with her after saving their family, Toph solemnly accepted the words, stating that she would agree to it if that was what Lin desired. Bad parenting, right?

However, after they had successfully saved everyone, Lin apologized for her harsh words. Something that was very unlikely to happen was Toph admitting that she had not been the best mother. She maintained that in the respite of this, she was nonetheless proud of how she had ended up with great daughters. 

She also said that it was enough for her to know that Lin did not hate her; Lin accepted her words and shared a small hug. 

Their relationship became a lot better after this event.

Did Toph Marry? Having Suyin Beifong

In 126 AG, Toph had her second daughter, Suyin, with another man as she would later let us know. Her first relationship did not work out with Kanto. We, however, do not know the identity of Suyin’s father.

Suyin also inherited earth bending and mastery of the sub-skill of metal bending, although Toph felt that Suyin never quite mastered all the key elements of these skills as well. However, this should be expected from a bending master. Finding someone that cuts it must be next to impossible for her.

Did Toph Marry? She Wanted to Be Nothing Like Her Parents

Due to how she grew up, Toph must have subconsciously decided to do the exact opposite of what her parents did. She gave Suyin and her sister Lin all the freedom that she did not have while growing up. It was clear that this was a bad move, and it became even clearer when Suyin got arrested by Lin for being the wheelman for the Terra Triad.

Lin apprehending Suyin and brought her to the station to her mother. Toph tore up the report and sent her second daughter to live with her grandparents. She must have rethought the decision to let her have unlimited freedom at that point. Her best decision was to send her to where she would not have the freedom she had gotten so used to. 

A year later, Toph retired, while Suyin went on to build the city of Zaofu. They both reconciled from the incident, and Toph would often visit before she went off in search of enlightenment. Lin was not aware of this and blamed Suyin for her recklessness, causing Toph to retire earlier than she needed to. An angry Lin held on to this for about two decades, ostracizing herself from two of her family members.

While she was residing in the Foggy Swamp, a spiritual center for energy and life, Toph kept an eye on Zaofu. It was here that she learned that Suyin and her family were taken prisoner by Kuvira in 174 AG. Toph traveled toward the metal city in order to rescue them. Upon being reunited with her youngest daughter, Toph let herself be hugged and readily returned the embrace. After successfully escaping the prison, Toph noted how proud she was to have such great daughters as Suyin and Lin. 

Toph did not marry anyone, but she did turn out with amazing daughters that ended up being befitting of wearing the Beifong name. 

Toph Was Only Nice Sometimes

While Toph is not often openly kind, she showed a great deal of warmness and cared only toward her only granddaughter, Opal. During her visits to Zaofu, Toph would often tell her tales from her past.

 In 174 AG, when Toph went to rescue her family, Opal rushed to hug her, an action Toph did not resist, although she cut it short and moved to hold Opal’s hands instead. This is something that Toph would not do to anyone else. Appraising her granddaughter, she fondly noted how much she had grown, though questioned her judgment when learning that Juicy was her flying bison and Bolin her boyfriend.

Toph is one of the characters that had children with bending skills that were passed on to the next generation.
