The father of Sozin and Zeisan ruled as Fire Lord over the Fire Nation until his death in 58 BG.

History

Sozin's father ruled in an era of peace,[2] while the Fire Nation experienced a period of industrialization and great prosperity. Trade flourished, and the country's society was enarmored with progressive thinking, spreading new ideas to the other nations.[3] Based on this material wealth and his country's size, Sozin's father believed the Fire Nation to be a supremely mighty nation. He imparted this thinking, according to which wordly power and a country's landmass corresponded to greatness, to his son.[1] During his life, he pitted his firebender son against his nonbender daughter, Zeisan.[4] Despite this, Sozin maintained a good relationship with his father,[5] whereas Zeisan would come to regard her family as morally corrupt.[4]

Sozin's father spent his reign mainly focused on internal matters,[4] and was known to cooperate with the Fire Sages. His life was not without challenge, however, as Sozin became easily worried about his father's health by 66 BG.[5] He died in 58 BG, passing the throne to Sozin.[6]

Legacy

Sozin's father was included in the Fire Nation Royal Palace's Royal Gallery. His portrait depicted him firebending and with astronomy-related imagery in front of clouds, a fire, and a darkened sun.[5]

Sozin would build upon his father's ideas,[1] and decided to "spread" the Fire Nation's prosperity through a war of conquest, starting the Hundred Year War.[5] Meanwhile, his daughter Zeisan opposed her father and brother's ideals, and intended to dismantle her family's increasing corruption by embracing the teachings of the Air Nomads.[4]

Around 170 years after his death, Sozin's father was mentioned by his great grandson Iroh in a book, musing how the Fire Lords starting with Sozin's father had been fundamentally wrong in regard to their world view, as true greatness stemmed from the quality of one's character and spirit instead of worldly power.[1]
