Zuko reluctantly adapts to his new life until he learns of Aang's presence in Ba Sing Se and attempts to steal Aang's pet bison Appa. Iroh later traveled to the Fire Nation via airship to reinstitute "National Tea Appreciation Day", though he confessed to the crew that Zuko did not know he created the holiday. With everyone going their own ways and Toph the only one still at the Fire Nation place (as she didn't want to return home) becomes closer friends with Zuko during this time as she decides how to pass on the skill of metal bending. Sometime later, while searching for a new teapot to add to his collection, Iroh ended up at Xai Bau's Grove, where he found Korra, telling the Avatar that it was common in the Spirit World to find something or someone one did not know they were looking for. Easygoing, open-minded, wise, comforting, generous, advising, kind, and humorous, Iroh treated his self-imposed exile during Zuko's search for the Avatar as though it were an extended vacation. Although Iroh warned him not to trifle with the spirits, Zhao intended to go to the Spirit Oasis and kill Tui. Iroh just wants Zuko to understand that he doesn't need to destroy himself to be worthy of love. Other than Aang, Iroh is one of the only living characters in Avatar: The Last Airbender to be in touch with the spirit… He had also advised Aang[6] and Toph[12] to great effect. Despite this, Zuko and Aang both disliked the drink, causing Iroh to sadly remark that he was "a man ahead of [his] time".[45]. Initially confused as to what he meant, Iroh reiterated to her that it would be best for her not to be around in the next few hours. He was a retired Fire Nation General, a former Crown Prince of the nation, a Grand Lotus of the Order of the White Lotus, a firebending master, and a wise mentor to his nephew Zuko. Zuko and Iroh at the grand opening of the Jasmine Dragon. The move would allow Zuko to redirect lighting, using the Chi that flowed through his body to pass the lighting from his arm, into his stomach, and out through his other arm. He managed to prove himself worthy, and they revealed to him the true secrets of firebending, without recourse to hatred and aggression. Iroh developed lightning redirection by studying waterbending. [19][20] In addition, the Sun Warriors showed him new breathing techniques, which allowed one to breath fire with exceptional mastery. 9 days ago. Iroh gained the title "The Dragon of the West" for two reasons: one, due to his ability to use the "Breath of Fire" technique effortlessly, and two, from him having supposedly slain the last two dragons. Iroh agreed, and, despite Zhao calling him a traitor, warned Zhao not to harm the spirit, threatening ten-fold retribution. Zhao offered false comfort to Iroh for Zuko's "death", and the two of them toasted victory. Iroh tried to tell her that she was not alone, but a distraught Korra erupted in a tantrum, saying she wanted to go home and did not like the Spirit World, causing the skies to darken and the spirits to grow restless. Especially the Prince, with his stupid hair and stupid jerkbending. Korra tried to apply what she had just learned to find Jinora, but Iroh stated that finding the young airbender would not be that easy. [17] Iroh eventually had one son, Lu Ten, with whom he was very close and loved very much. Zuko said he knew, promised to return to Iroh after he captured the Avatar, and left.[13]. Considering they have one eye and two braincells that Zuko doesn't know how to use and Toph has never tired to use between them, their friendship causes mishaps as well as growth and support as they visit each other on various occasions usually resulting in Toph making a lot of enemies as she tries to drag the Fire Lord away from his duties. [10] Despite never finding his son, Iroh's travels greatly enhanced his understanding of the world and of himself. When Fire Lord Azulon ordered Iroh to adopt Zuko, it seemed like the magic wand that would fix everything that was wrong in Zuko's life. Ursa then embraced him, saying he had nothing to be sorry for and that his presence in the family always gave her hope. Iroh would later regret that he had not done enough during this time to better understand and guide his brother. Iroh convinced Zuko to give up his alias as the Blue Spirit[35] and cared for Zuko when he became ill as a result of his actions under Lake Laogai, which were in complete conflict with Zuko's image of himself. One month before Avatar Aang awakens from his icy slumber, Sokka of the Southern Water Tribe makes a rather poor decision that winds him on the steel cold ship of a banished Crown Prince and his ragtag crew of soldiers, sailors, and stowaways. Fire NationFire Nation military (formerly)Fire Nation Royal FamilyJasmine DragonOrder of the White LotusSpirit World Eventually, a day came when a strange beacon lit the skies off the coast of the South Pole. Zuko is genuinely happy for the first time in a long time. In season two, Team Avatar, Zuko, and Iroh all get into a battle against Azula. [21], The deaths of Lu Ten and Azulon and losing his claim on the throne of Fire Lord filled Iroh with a deep sense of sadness and failure, though his journey across the world by the side of his nephew Zuko healed and transformed him into a kind and wiser man, changing his perspective of the world completely from when he was the Crown Prince and a general. Through the ordeal, Iroh reassured Zuko that when he came out of his illness, he would be the "beautiful prince" he was always meant to be, and remained confident that Zuko will be the one person to redeem the wrongdoings of the Fire Nation. 4. Something of an epicurean in his old age, he did not devote his full energies to the pursuit of the Avatar, clashing with the dedication of his nephew. Something of an epicurean in his old age, he did not devote his full energies to the pursuit of the Avatar, clashing with the dedication of his nephew. Zhao agreed, although he stated that he was working on a solution to take care of "the moon problem". Like his Great Uncle Iroh, Iroh also holds the rank of general. Iroh witnessed how Zuko refused to duel his father, though averted his gaze when Ozai proceeded to burn Zuko's face, scarring him. Iroh sat on his silk recliner bed, three pillows under his head and back, a soft warm blanket on top of him kept what little draft that came in through the sun-windows off of his fevered skin. However, in the following seasons, he usually just called him Zuko or nephew, likely due to the fact that Zuko was renounced as Prince of the Fire Nation at the start of the second season. [35] He appeared laid-back because he understood that there were things in life he could not control, but he also believed that a person is fully responsible for the parts they can. He offered Korra tea and cake, and when she recognized Wan's teapot as her own, Iroh explained how when she was Avatar Wan, she had used it to carry Raava before they permanently bonded, adding that tea poured out of the cup still retained a hint of light. When a soldier went to tighten the cuff, Iroh breathed fire, heating it up to scalding temperatures and thus burning the soldier's hand. The role of Iroh was recast with Greg Baldwin, Mako's understudy and a long-time student of his voice. He would continue to assist Zuko mostly by offering advice through proverbs and teaching him firebending, strategy, and leadership skills. At one point of the way, however, Iroh feigned sleepiness and fell off his ostrich horse. Iroh also taught Zuko how to redirect lightning, a technique he discovered by studying waterbending. Bryan Konietzko referred to Iroh as \"Iroh the Younger\" and described him as a \"swashbuckling hero-type guy\". Iroh was the oldest son of Azulon and Ilah, and grandson of Fire Lord Sozin. [3] While on a day off, Iroh spent the day shopping in the city. Other Media We're the creators and showrunners of the newly released show, https://avatar.fandom.com/wiki/Iroh?oldid=2841356, Grand Lotus of the Order of the White Lotus. [46] Even though Iroh appreciated being Fire Lord more than he thought he would, it also made him miss his tea shop in Ba Sing Se.[47]. Zuko was an impatient student, who was anxious to learn combat quickly, and had little time for the life lessons Iroh wanted to impart on him, though Iroh persisted.[4]. While serving as general in the Hundred Year War, Iroh fully embraced his role as future leader of the Fire Nation. [2][6][8][12], After the traumatic death of his son, Iroh saw Zuko as his own son rather than his nephew,[13] and encouraged him to choose his own destiny, rather than a fate members of the royal family expected of him. When Zuko asked Iroh if he would become the new Fire Lord afterward, Iroh said he was no longer suitable for the position. [4] He was the elder son of Fire Lord Azulon and Ilah and the older brother of Ozai. He told his nephew that he would not be able to fight Azula alone, and Zuko subsequently asked Katara for her help in "putting Azula in her place". [55] Iroh and Zuko later reunited for the first time since Iroh passed over to the Spirit World.[56]. Iroh and Zuko were now branded traitors by the Fire Nation.
