Basic Information

Ozai is the younger brother to Iroh, son to Fire Lord Azulon, husband of Ursa and father to Zuko and Azula.

In his younger years he searched for the Avatar, like his father and his grandfather before him. But, like them, he was unsuccessful in his search.

When Iroh abandons his campaign to conquer the Earth Kingdom city of Ba Sing Se, Ozai asks his father to revoke his older brother’s birthright and name him heir to the throne. Although we are show Azulon refusing his sons request, Ozai is still named Fire Lord after his father mysteriously dies later evening. Ursa disappears the same night, for reasons yet to be revealed.

Years later, Zuko sits in on a meeting of commanders in the Fire Lord’s War Room and objects to a strategy which hinges on sacrificing a large number of new troops. By doing so he dishonors his father and is forced to face him in agni kai. Zuko refuses to fight and as a result, Ozai publicly scars his son and banishes him from the Fire Nation.

Currently, he is directing the war against the Earth Kingdom and is planning to use the power of Sozin’s Comet to finally conquer the world.
