His henchmen are Chi Blockers, all masked

 
  • There are Metalbender Cops who were trained by Toph (who travels around teaching elite Earthbenders the ability, a Metalbender Swat team), they have spools on their backs that have metal chains in them, so they can Zip around teh city

And there is a parkour/freerunning aspect in the fights to with Jake Huang and Steve Terada helping out there.
  • On the music side of things, The style they are going for is if China invented Jazz in the 20′s, also Western and Ethical music
