The Fire Nation’s most famous Avatar, Zuko, has been scarred by the loss of his mother Ursa. What happened to Ursa?
The animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender showed that Ursa made a deal with Fire Lord Ozai to protect Zuko.
She married him in order to fulfill a prophecy that would produce descendants with great power. But she never came back for her family.
Ursa was the mother of Zuko and Azula, the wife of Fire Lord Ozai, and a powerful Fire Nation princess. She was so protective of her children that she would do anything to prevent harm.
Ursa was banished from the Fire Nation Palace and returned home to form a strong bond with Noren. She met with a spirit called the Mother of Faces, who promised to give her a new face and erase all memories relating to her time as a Fire Nation princess.
Noren, her husband later had a child with her and they called Kiyi. But Kiyi was too young for her to know about her mother’s past.
Eventually, Ursa encountered the Mother of Faces again and had her memories restored.
She also gained a new identity and a new name: Noriko, and married Noren. She still felt the pain from her past life with Ozai.
Azula is the crown princess of the Fire Nation. Azula is also an excellent strategist and manipulator, and a skilled firebender.
Through most of the series, her closest friends Mai and Ty Lee were she confidants. They were the ones who stayed by her side and stood by her when she was betrayed.
Her brother Zuko is also important to her and she wants him to be a successful firebender. This may have been a reaction to their parents betrayal or she is just trying to protect him.
Azula is very strategic and intelligent, which can prove frustrating to her brother. She has been known to use deception and lies to get her way.
When I first read Avatar: The Search I was unsure what I should think of Zuko’s mother. While she’s not a villain like her father Azulon, nor does she have the kind of sociopathy that leaves you feeling sorry for her.
But she does have a lot to teach Zuko about life, and it’s clear from the start that she’s an integral part of the show. She doesn’t have a huge amount of dialogue, but her presence is crucial to Zuko’s growth as a character.
A curtain-like fabric, similar to a curtain, is used in Japan to divide rooms at traditional Japanese restaurants or izakaya bars. Noren is the name of this fabric and it’s a very common sight.
She is a happy Fire Nation kid, but she is suddenly thrust into the spotlight as the ideal replacement for Ozai. Her new face is meant to be a symbol of hope and stability.
Kiyi may never be able to forget her past, which will have an everlasting negative effect on her. She is now unable to see the positive side of her parents, and will forever be haunted.
In 1952, six-year-old Kya watched her mother leave the family after her father’s drinking and abuse. Her mother was always there for her.
She is still hopeful, confident and able to defend herself. It isn’t until she meets her uncle Iroh that she truly realizes her worth and how much she is loved.
She also learns that she has a lot in common with her uncle. It isn’t easy to trust your uncle with your life, but he is worth it.
