Sozin's Blood is a fanon, written by French Froglegs, which tells the story of Iroh's and eventual Fire Lord Ozai's life, from Ozai's very birth to his coronation and the scarring of Zuko. However, it will not cover Iroh's journeys between the death of Lu Ten and his eventual return to the Fire Nation, as the author thinks there's enough material to create another fanon. "Sozin's Blood" will be a tragic tale. Its main focus is to create a relevant story on the events that shaped the two brothers into the characters there are today, based on the few facts we know of Iroh and Ozai before the events of "Avatar : The Last Airbender".

Why this fanon?

French Froglegs had always been a big fan of Iroh and Azula. After a conversation with fellow user Kaizuh about the tragedy of Azula's life, how she had been manipulated by Ozai to become a monster, I thought of telling a story of how Ozai himself came to be a cruel power-hungry man. After all, as we saw in "Sozin's Comet" with the painting of him when he was two years old, he was, at a time, a sweet little kid.

However, I didn't want us to feel too sorry for Ozai, with readers saying : "It's Azulon's fault." (because it will mostly be). Although a bad education is responsible of many traumas, it is not the only thing that made Ozai ... Ozai. Don't blame the parents. The best-known example of a son who manages to fight the tyranny of his father and escapes the clutches of Evil is of course Zuko. My goal is to show that, in the end, the sole person that can be blamed for turning the Fire Nation Prince into a heartless dictator is Ozai himself.

So I wanted to add another protagonist, raised in the same conditions that Ozai but who still succeeds in being a good (but not perfect) person.

Of course Iroh came to my mind.

Now, making Iroh into one of my main characters was a tough decision to make, as he simply fills a room by his mere presence, both metaphorically and physically. But I couldn't resist the temptation of doing a young Iroh.

The author also wanted to improve his writer skills, although writing in a foreign language might not be the best way to do so.
