Jinzuk and Rina were the parents of Ursa and maternal grandparents of Zuko, Azula, and Kiyi. They lived in the small Fire Nation town of Hira'a, where Jinzuk was a magistrate.[1]

History

Jinzuk and Rina in their youth.

Rina was the daughter of Avatar Roku and his wife, Ta Min.[4] As she grew up, she met and later married Jinzuk, who became a magistrate of Hira'a. They subsequently settled down in the village and had one daughter together, Ursa.[1] As a master herbalist, Rina taught her daughter much about medicinal herbs and poisons.[5]

When Ursa was twenty-one years old, Fire Lord Azulon approached the couple with Prince Ozai in tow. The Fire Sages had prophesied that a powerful bloodline would result from the marriage between his son and a descendant of Avatar Roku, namely Ursa, and Azulon wished to bring this prediction to fulfillment. While Jinzuk was entertaining his guests in the family's greenhouse, Rina was inside the main house, crying over the Crown Prince headpiece that she had inherited from her father. When Ursa came home, Rina told her to go to her father and his guests in the greenhouse, but emphasized to her daughter that she loved her.

Ursa accepted Ozai's marriage proposal, stating that it brought much honor to her family. Rina and Jinzuk attended their daughter's wedding and bid her a final farewell, as Fire Nation princesses were not permitted to have any connection with their family or home towns. Ursa attempted to have letters secretly sent home, but was betrayed by the servant Elua for Ozai.[1] Both of them died years before Ursa's eventual banishment and not having received any of her letters, never heard from their daughter again.[5]
