During the last years of the Hundred Year War, Ozai ruled the Fire Nation as Fire Lord. He ruled from 95 to 100 AD. This Fire Lord Azulon’s son was the father of Prince Zuko and Princess Azula, as well as Izumi’s paternal grandpa and his younger brother Iroh’s uncle.
Ozai, a firebending master, was widely regarded as the most powerful firebender in the world prior to the conclusion of the war.
His father Iroh perished and his mother Ursa was exiled as a result of Ozai stealing his brother Ozai’s birthright to kingship
It was under Ozai’s reign that a great deal of industry was built up, as well as important advances in technology.
Ozai, like his father and grandfather before him, aspired to control the globe as a tyrant. Sozin’s Comet would be used to destroy the Earth Kingdom, abandoning the title of Fire Lord and assuming the title of Phoenix King, ruler of all the globe. His goals were thwarted by Avatar Aang, who used energybending to permanently erase his firebending powers.
For his part in the conflict and the subsequent coronation of Zuko I, Ozai received a life term in jail for a number of war crimes.
Some of Ozai’s most devoted followers formed the “New Ozai Society,” and his son, who sought Ozai’s counsel on occasion, helped him preserve some political clout in the globe. Thus, the former Fire Lord had a role in the movement’s demise in a roundabout way.
According to his elder brother, Iroh, Ozai had a tough temperament from the time he “could crawl” on his own. A painting of Ozai as a baby was created when he was playing on the sand at the seashore. His stubbornness, impatience, and ambition got stronger as he matured. As a result, Ozai and Iroh’s relationship was constantly tight, and the two frequently fought over the tiniest of issues, like as a game of Pai Sho. Whatever the case, many people wrote off Ozai’s aggressive behaviour as the product of a child’s emotions.
Azulon’s preference for Iroh affected his conduct and beliefs on family.
Even if his ruthlessness and drive aided him in school, Ozai’s relationship with his elder brother was only temporary. He separated himself from Ozai again when he recognised that Ozai’s disposition originated from a deep-seated lack of empathy and harsh ambition. Ozai, like his father and grandfather before him, endeavoured to locate and capture the Avatar, but like they all did, he was unsuccessful.
Ozai, unlike his grandfather, father, and brother, was never a general, and as a result, he has no memories of notable military victories other than his time as leader of the Fire Nation.
The Fire Sages prophesied that adding Avatar Roku’s lineage to the royal family would result in a more powerful bloodline, thus Ozai and his father pursued this course of action. The Avatar’s granddaughter, Ursa, was found in Hira’a by the two of them. Ozai proposed to Ursa after a brief introduction by his father. She accepted.
However, as they prepared to return to the capital city, a commoner blocked their path, asking that Ursa be released. Ursa begged with Ozai to allow her to talk to the guy in an attempt to persuade him to return home, and Ozai agreed to do so after a short battle. The prince agreed to the princess’s request after being referred to as “My Love” by her. It wasn’t long until the gang resumed their trek back to the main city.
Marriage And The Beginnings of A Family-
The prince married Ursa at the age of thirty, and at their subsequent dinner, Ozai informed his bride of her new responsibilities. To her dismay, he explained that she must cut all links with her former life, including relatives and friends, in order to devote herself entirely to her new responsibilities and the royal family. Ozai embraced Ursa and kissed her passionately, declaring that she was now his.
They have two children together after their marriage: Zuko and Azula.
His parents were unsure if Zuko was a firebender at birth because of his absence of “that light in] eyes.” Ozai intended to toss his young son out of the palace because of the embarrassment he would feel as a prince of the Fire Nation if he were a nonbender. Ursa and the Fire Sages, on the other hand, begged with Ozai to give Zuko a chance.
