Ursa was the wife of Ozai and later Noren, mother of Zuko, Azula, and Kiyi,[4] daughter of Jinzuk and Rina, and maternal granddaughter of Avatar Roku and Ta Min. She grew up in the Fire Nation village of Hira'a until she was forced by Fire Lord Azulon to marry Ozai in order to fulfill a prophecy about a royal descendant of Roku that would bring great power to Azulon's lineage. When she learned years later that the Fire Lord had ordered her husband to murder Zuko and that he intended to go through with it, she ensured her son's life was spared but was subsequently banished from the Fire Nation Capital for treason.[5] She returned to her hometown, where she rekindled her relationship with her old boyfriend, who changed his face and identity to Noren. In order to lead a normal life again, she requested that the Mother of Faces grant her an entirely new face and identity while also wiping all of her memories relating to her life with Ozai as a Fire Nation princess, but at the cost that those included any memory of her children.

As Noriko, Ursa had another daughter, Kiyi, though after her two elder children tracked her down, she encountered the Mother of Faces again and decided to have the spirit restore her old face and memories.[4] Zuko subsequently revoked her banishment and welcomed her back to the capital with her new family, where she was respected as the mother of the new Fire Lord.[6] Ursa was anxious to return to the capital once again, and her fears were proven true when Kiyi was kidnapped in Azula's plot, but Ursa was overjoyed to see her daughter safely returned thanks to Zuko and his allies. The ordeal also gave her the strength she needed to face her ex-husband.[7]


Leaving her loved ones

Ursa and Ikem confirmed their engagement with a passionate kiss.

Ursa was born around 64 AG[2] to Jinzuk and Rina in the small Fire Nation town of Hira'a. From an early age, she was close friends with a boy named Ikem. Though she would tease him when they were younger, they became a happy couple as they grew up.[8]

At twenty-one, Ursa auditioned for the role of Dragon Empress in the local production of Love amongst the Dragons. She went to tell Ikem that she had received the role and found him rehearsing his lines on an empty stage during the day. Upon Ikem's request, they rehearsed a scene of the play in which they would have to kiss on stage, but Ursa expressed her dissatisfaction with "masked kissing", as the props stood in the way. Once she had taken off her mask, Ikem startled her with an unnerving stare; Ursa questioned him about it and he promptly proposed. Ursa, after some slight confusion, happily accepted, and they sealed their engagement with a passionate kiss.

Later at night, she gleefully made her way home to tell her mother of Ikem's proposal, but she found her mother crying over Avatar Roku's headpiece. When she inquired as to what was going on and where her father was, her mother told her that he was in the greenhouse with a visitor. However, before Ursa left the room, her mother emphasized that she loved her no matter what happened.

Ursa tearfully bid Ikem farewell to ensure his safety.

Upon entering the greenhouse, Ursa discovered that the guests about whom her mother had been talking were Fire Lord Azulon and his son, Prince Ozai. The Fire Lord complimented her beauty before mentioning a prophecy made by the Fire Sages that ensured a powerful lineage of rulers to come forth from a marital union between a descendant of Avatar Roku and his own bloodline. Ozai subsequently proposed to Ursa, and she, without a choice in the matter, agreed. As Ursa was leaving town with her betrothed, Ikem blocked the carriage's path. She pleaded with Ozai to order his soldiers to stop, calling the prince "[her] love". He complied, and she stepped out from the carriage and told Ikem to go home. Despite his begging, Ursa told him that her decision could not be undone, as Ozai's proposal had brought honor to her family. She made clear to Ikem that marrying Ozai was what she truly wanted and, with tears in her eyes, told him once more to go home, knowing that it was the only way to ensure his safety. She subsequently left a devastated Ikem by the side of the road.[8]

Life as Fire Princess

Ursa and Ozai's wedding.

During his wedding celebration, Ozai informed Ursa that she should tell her parents that they had always been good to her, revealing that she could no longer have ties with her former life after the event. Thus, she was forced to bid her parents farewell and started her new life as a Princess of the Fire Nation.[8]

Following her marriage, Ursa gave birth to Prince Zuko, and two years later, to Princess Azula. On a family trip to Ember Island, Zuko nearly drowned in his attempt to assist a turtle crab. After Ozai rescued him, Ursa comforted Zuko by holding him while he recovered from his experience.[9]

However, even after the birth of her two children, she was unwilling to forget the loved ones she had left behind or the life she would have led in Hira'a. She secretly had a set of masks from Love amongst the Dragons made and kept them hidden in her quarters behind a painting of her and Ozai to remind her of Hira'a Acting Troupe, and particularly Iken with the Dragon Emperor mask. She also wrote to them frequently. She employed a palace servant, Elua, to send these secret letters back home, causing Ursa to view her as part of her family and was eternally grateful for Elua's services. However, unbeknownst to Ursa, none of her letters made it to their destination as Elua had betrayed her trust and filed the notes away on the orders of Prince Ozai. [8]

Ursa eventually became suspicious of the fact that Ozai had intercepted and read her letters, and came up with a plan to trick him into admitting it: she wrote a fake letter to Ikem in which she stated him to be Zuko's real father.[4] Months later, Ozai confronted her with his knowledge of the letter, stating that her actions were treasonous to the crown of the Fire Nation. Ursa was initially furious to learn that her suspicions of Ozai were correct but quickly burst into tears when Ozai revealed that he had taken measures to kill Ikem.[5] Ursa demanded to know why Ozai had done so since they both knew Zuko was really Ozai's son, and Ozai responded by asking her why she had written the false letter in the first place. Ursa told him her original plan, and that part of her motivation was that she wished Zuko was not Ozai's son. As an act of vengeance, Ozai stated that, from that point onward, he would treat Zuko as if Ursa's desire had been a reality.[4]

Other than her children, there was one other bright spot in her life as princess: her brother-in-law, Crown Prince Iroh. A much different man than Ozai, she and Iroh liked and respected each other, and his presence in the Royal Family always gave her hope.[6]

Ursa and Zuko shared an innocent moment by the turtle duck pond.

One morning, Ursa and Zuko were feeding turtle ducks at a small pond in the palace's garden. The young boy offered his mother to show her the way Azula fed them, which led him to hit the mother of the turtle duck with a large piece of bread. Ursa berated him while the creature approached Zuko and bit his ankle though was returned to the water by Ursa. Searching the reason why the turtle duck had bitten him, Ursa told Zuko that mothers were protective of their children and would "bite back" when they were in danger, proceeding to snap her jaws at Zuko in a caring way. As Ursa and Zuko were walking through a courtyard, both were approached by Azula, who persuaded her mother to let Zuko play with her, Mai, and Ty Lee. She was shocked, however, when she saw her son coming back sodden as a consequence of Azula's plan.

Later on, Ursa called her children and informed them that a letter from their Uncle Iroh in Ba Sing Se had arrived at the palace, alongside gifts to Zuko and Azula; the latter remarked that if he did not return from the siege, their father Ozai would be the next in line to be Fire Lord, affirming sharply that "[their] dad would make a much better Fire Lord". Ursa, astonished, told Azula to be quiet as that would be a misfortune.

Days later, Ursa was sitting near the pond when a servant delivered her another letter from Ba Sing Se. After reading it, Ursa let a tear fall from her cheek and informed her children that Iroh's son, Lu Ten, had not survived the battle. Consequently, Fire Lord Azulon called the entire family to an audience at the throne room, where Ursa watched as her children demonstrated their firebending abilities. Zuko's skills, however, paled in comparison to his sister's, and after he fell to the ground, Ursa ran to him and tried to comfort him. The audience with the family was short-lived, as Azulon dismissed everyone except Ozai.[1]

In order to save Zuko, Ursa made a deal with Ozai, providing him with an untraceable poison to murder his father.

That night, Ursa found her children squabbling over something. Curious, she pulled Azula aside to get the full story and found out that Ozai asked Fire Lord Azulon to pass Iroh's birthright of the throne to him now that Lu Ten had died in the Siege of Ba Sing Se. As punishment for his insolence, Ozai was tasked by an infuriated Azulon to feel the pain of losing a firstborn by killing his own. Shocked by this information, Ursa sent Azula off to bed and went to find her husband. After Ozai declared that he had every intention of going through with his orders, Ursa made a deal with him: the throne for Zuko's life. Ozai accepted her offer on the added condition that she was to leave the palace after having concocted the untraceable color- and odorless poison, as he feared that she would otherwise slip it to him as well. Ursa tried to negotiate that she would leave with her children as well, but Ozai refused as they were his collateral; as long as she kept up her end, Zuko and Azula would not be harmed. If she tried to stay or take the children with her, Ozai would have the three hunted down and killed.[5]

Ursa comforted Zuko just before her disappearance.

Ursa crafted the poison and handed it to Ozai before making her way to the rooms of her children to say her goodbyes. She kissed a sleeping Azula on the cheek,[5] before moving on to Zuko and waking the young prince. She reminded him of her true, strong motherly love and told him to always remember who he was, no matter how things seemed to change. She subsequently pulled the hood of her cape over her head and walked away into the shadows.[1] She left the palace on a boat, heading back toward Hira'a.[5]

Life as Noriko

Arriving in Hira'a in the middle of the night, Ursa went to her parents' old house to visit them. However, a little girl opened the door instead and informed her, unaware of who she was, that Jinzuk and Rina had both passed away years prior. Saddened and with nowhere to go, Ursa retreated to the theater stage in the middle of the town and cried to herself in silence. Noren came up to her, believing that she was looking for a part in the next play, but after realizing how sad the former Fire Nation princess was, he invited her to breakfast, something Ursa gladly accepted.[5]

Ursa received her new face and identity from the Mother of Faces, becoming Noriko in the process.

As Ursa ate her breakfast, she conversed with Noren, when suddenly, Noren mentioned her name while Ursa was certain she was yet to introduce herself. An awkward Ursa lost her appetite and prepared to leave when Noren admitted he is actually Ikem, her ex-fiancé. Noren revealed that he had encountered the Mother of Faces, who had altered his face. Ursa deduced that Ozai had simply lied to her after he was unsuccessful in finding and killing Ikem, because he changed his face and identity. Noren offered Ursa a chance to make up for their lost time as lovers: for Ursa to have her face be changed and continue their love, as well as having a chance to see her children undetected.

The couple went to Forgetful Valley, eventually arriving by one of the sacred pools from where the Mother of Faces' wolf drank and set up a shelter they could live in. After at least several months of living in the forest, the wolf showed up, indicating they were near to the face-bestowing spirit. Noren comforted a saddened Ursa, who had found her place in the world with him and he suggested moving her children to Hira'a, but his lover declined this, saying that doing so might put the entire town in danger, let alone them and her children. The Mother of Faces did arrive but was puzzled by Ursa's decision to change her face, despite her obvious beauty. To test her sincerity, the spirit offered the former princess a new, much plainer face, which Ursa accepted without hesitation. Sensing Ursa's pain, the Mother of Faces also asked her if she would want a new mind that did not remember her old life. After much deliberation, Ursa agreed to forget her past life, even it meant for her to forget the children she left back in the palace. With a new face and identity, Ursa, who knew herself as "Noriko", married Noren on the theatre stage as their wedding venue, and had one child, Kiyi.[4] "Noriko" was living peacefully with her family in Hira'a until the arrival of a disguised Team Avatar in 102 AG, almost five years after the wedding.

"Noriko" remembered hearing that Ursa once had returned to Hira'a, looking for Ikem.

Noriko questioned Aang and Katara on whether they were thinking about marriage as they were a bit young for that, but upon seeing their reactions, quickly withdrew her inquiry and simply stated that they were lucky to have found each other at their age. Noren interrupted their conversation, and, claiming to believe Sokka's cover story about them being drama historians, informed the group that Ursa was the acting troupe's most famous member, but that she was taken to the Fire Nation Capital. When Zuko inquired about Ikem, Noren relayed to them that Ikem was Ursa's boyfriend, but after Ursa was taken, he left, with Noriko adding that he was believed to have run off to Forgetful Valley, a dangerous forest near the town. She informed them that Ursa apparently returned to Hira'a years later, looking for Ikem, and subsequently traveled to Forgetful Valley to find him, though Noren questioned the accuracy of his wife's statement.[5]

As Azula threatened to kill her, Ursa apologized to her first daughter for not having been a better mother, despite not remembering.

The next night, Zuko returned to the house upon learning the truth about Noriko actually being Ursa. When Zuko was about to leave after being satisfied that Noriko was happy with her life, Noren stopped him, encouraged him to tell Noriko of who he really was and told his wife the truth about her identity. Azula burst in through the roof while battling Sokka, wanting to kill her and questioning if Kiyi was a replacement for her. Noriko's response was that if she was indeed her mother, her only fault was not loving her enough. After Zuko defeated Azula and she ran off, the Mother of Faces appeared, asking her if she wanted to regain her former memories. Although Zuko countered that she did not have to as the life she knew in Hira'a was beautiful just as it was, Noriko agreed without hesitation in order to remember Zuko and Azula. The next day she apologized to Zuko and on his asking about it, told him the truth about the letter. Zuko forgave her and Ursa decided to share her past with her son, starting right from the beginning.[4]

Return to the Fire Nation Capital

Scared to lose her daughter, Ursa hugged her close and forbade her from riding a flying dolphin fish with Aang.

A few weeks later after reuniting with her son, Zuko arranged for Ursa and her family to sail back toward the Fire Nation Capital for the first time since Ozai banished her. As the mother of the new Fire Lord, Ursa received the formal title of "Lady". When Zuko announced that they were nearing the main island, she was pleased to notice that he still had that sparkle in his eyes like when he was little whenever he got excited. As she lovingly brushed the side of his head, a slightly embarrassed Zuko shied away from her ministrations, deeming them to be unfitting for a Fire Lord, prompting Ursa to apologize. As Zuko left her to go check up on his friends, Noren approached Ursa and asked her if she was okay, explaining that her hands always grew cold whenever she was scared. Noting that it had just been a long time since she had been in "that place", Ursa assured her husband that she would be fine. Upon noticing Aang and Kiyi riding a flying dolphin fish, she panicked and yelled for her daughter to come back, ignoring Katara's reassuring statement that Kiyi was safe with Aang. When the Avatar instantly brought Kiyi back on board, Ursa pulled her into a tight hug, saying that she could not lose her too, though her daughter rebelled against her embrace, yelling to be let go. As Noren took Kiyi below deck at the girl's request, Ursa forlornly agreed with her son that Kiyi needed time to adjust to her changed face. When Aang apologized for having worried her, she promptly dismissed it, noting that she should be the one apologizing for overreacting before excusing herself and walking to the side of the ship to look out over the water.

Ursa was reassured by Zuko that he would do everything in his power to keep her and her family safe.

Later on, Ursa was out on deck, a tear rolling down her face. She was approached by Zuko asking if she was okay. Though startled by his appearance, she answered that she was fine. She asked him if Aang, Katara, and Sokka had left. After Zuko said yes, she said he was lucky to have "such good friends". Once again, Zuko asked if she was okay and she replied she just needed fresh air. Zuko thought she was upset about Kiyi, though Ursa admitted that she was thinking about Azula and asked her son if he thought she was safe, warm, and happy. Zuko recalled how he spent weeks looking for her in Forgetful Valley without finding her, which meant Azula did not want to be found. He believed her to be safe as he knew she would survive, though he did not know what "happy" was for Azula. Ursa told her son they should not be dour right before returning to the capital and that it would be wonderful to see him in his element. As Zuko took her hand to thank her, he found it was cold and began to take her below deck. However, a messenger hawk carrying a message from the Kyoshi warriors appeared, and after seeing her son's angered face, Ursa asked if something was wrong but was assured that it was nothing he could not handle. Before she went below the deck, Zuko promised to keep her family, especially Kiyi, safe with all his power.

The next morning, while on deck with her family, Ursa looked through a telescope and noticed they were not at Harbor City. She was informed by Zuko that there had been a change of plans, and a submarine appeared, out of which Iroh and Suki emerged. As Iroh apologized for the pain his family had caused her, Ursa readily embraced him and said he did not need to apologize as his presence had always given her hope. She then happily looked on as Iroh met with Kiyi and Noren.

Ursa and her family took the submarine on a detour to the capital via a hidden pathway through the forest. Unfortunately, they were ambushed by the New Ozai Society, who demanded that Zuko relinquish the throne if he valued his family's lives. Ursa tried to comfort Kiyi, assuring that Zuko would protect them, but her daughter rejected her touch, stating that her hands were cold. When Zuko and his Kyoshi Warrior bodyguards were subdued, the New Ozai Society prepared to burn the carriage as punishment for Zuko's defiance. Thankfully, one of their own had a change of heart and freed Zuko before reinforcement arrived and drove off the attackers.

Ursa was hesitant to enter the Fire Nation Royal Palace for the first time since her exile.

As they arrived at the palace, Ursa was hesitant to enter the Great Hall for the first time since her exile. She declined Zuko's offer to stay in her old bedroom, saying that one of the guest rooms would suffice. Upon walking through the palace, she tried to reassure herself that she and Kiyi were perfectly safe as Zuko was now in charge and that Ozai was no longer there. However, she was slightly startled when she stumbled upon Ozai's painting in the Royal Gallery.[6]

A month later, Ursa and her family were witnesses to Ukano being escorted from the palace. Kiyi was curious as to what Ukano was grumpy about, but her parents assured her she need not be concerned, and Ursa assured her that they'll be safe in the palace. However, again, Kiyi refused Ursa's cold touch.

Later the same night, Ursa overheard Suki and Ty Lee discussing the recent dark spirit attacks in the city. Upon hearing that Tom-Tom was abducted, Ursa panicked when she saw that Noren was not looking after Kiyi, and was relieved to find her daughter sleeping soundly.

Later on, as Ursa and Noren retired, Zuko moved Kiyi to another room at her request. However, this left her vulnerable as she was abducted by Azula, who was disguised as a Kemurikage.[10] Ursa and Noren were subsequently woken by the sounds of battle outside the palace and to their horror, they learned from Zuko that their daughter had been taken from them, prompting the two parents to embrace one another.

Ursa confronted Ozai in prison.

Worried for Kiyi's safety, Ursa sat alone, cradling Kiyi's doll, before being joined by Iroh. Ursa then broke the silence, lamenting that Kiyi may never reconcile with her changed face, though Iroh insisted that she not give up hope. She proceeded to ask her brother-in-law how he had managed to cope with the passing of his son, Lu Ten. Iroh confessed that he had never gotten over it and consoled that parents are not always able to protect their children, and the best they can do is teach them to see fear with unclouded eyes.

After Zuko, Aang, Mai, and Kei Lo rescued Kiyi and the other abducted children from Azula, Ursa was present as Zuko publicly apologized for his misconduct in handling the crisis. Accompanied by Iroh, Ursa subsequently went to see Ozai in prison for the first time in years. Ozai spouted threats at her, but she saw past it and labeled the former Fire Lord as a small man trying to be big, who never had a heart for any member of his family or even himself. She then turned and left his cell, as Ozai desperately demanded her to come back and grovel before him. Ursa then returned to bed with Noren and Kiyi, who welcomed her for the first time since getting her original face back.[7]


In contrast with her adult personality, Ursa was quite rough, playful, and spirited in her youth, as evidenced by her teasing of Ikem, which even went as far as kicking him in the stomach and pushing his face in the dirt.[8] As she knew that her marriage to someone with the personality and rank as Ozai would mean she would be constantly isolated and seen by vigilantes, she was very careful and vigilant herself, knowing the servants who she could not trust and hid her medical skills from her then-husband. However, Ursa's forceful attitude was shown even against his fury when she confirmed that he read her letters through a risky plan, which would indirectly affect Zuko negatively at the end.

Ursa was rather artistic and perseverant, She always wanted to get the part as the Dragon Empress in Love amongst the Dragons. Her love for the play extended even to her isolated adulthood, showing it to her children who acted as the main rivals in the play. Ursa was a pragmatist, choosing to leave Ikem behind in order to protect him and later accepted banishment in order to save Zuko. Despite her love and affection for her children, she opted to forget their existence at one point in order to find inner peace once she reunited with Noren. Ultimately, she came to regret this decision, realizing that Zuko and Azula were her true family.[4]

Ursa cared for her children greatly.

Ursa was a kind, caring, and loving mother to her children, showing equal authority in their parenting as her much more powerful husband. One of her defining features was her strong motherly love and protectiveness of her only son Zuko, whom she encouraged to be as he is, especially his determination.[11] Her life was dedicated to safeguarding him from any harm, resorting to any means necessary to keep her son safe such as to give Ozai a vial of poison, aware that he would use it to kill Fire Lord Azulon and take the throne.[5] Similarly, Ursa's relationship with her youngest daughter, Kiyi, was very loving and caring despite it temporary got strained after obtaining her original face. She was overprotective as well, as she panicked when she saw Kiyi riding a flying dolphin fish, being fearful of losing her second daughter too.[6]

However, Ursa's relationship with her eldest daughter Azula was strained by the fact that the young princess was emotionally abusive and manipulative toward her family and friends, especially Zuko. She was forced to discipline Azula on a regular basis, but it was apparent to her that her daughter's cruelty was beyond a normal level.[1] It was her behavior toward Azula that started the princess' anger and jealousy toward Zuko for how he was loved and cared for by her as she herself craved their mother's love. Although her treatment was good-intentioned, the way she disciplined Azula regularly made her daughter incorrectly believe that Ursa thought of her as a monster;[12] her belief that Ursa never loved her influenced Azula's later behavior and emotional instability.[13] However, despite all this, Ursa cared about her daughter's well-being, as she wondered, teary-eyed, if Azula was safe, warm, or happy after learning that she had vanished in the Forgetful Valley and appeared to regret how her attempts to make Azula a better person had caused her daughter such pain.[6]


Medical skills

Ursa could create an untraceable, deadly poison.

Ursa was taught a great deal about many medicinal herbs and poisons from her mother, a master herbalist. After she accepted Ozai's marriage proposal, she was not known to practice but her skill remained excellent. She used her knowledge to create a powerful colorless, odorless poison that was completely untraceable.[5]

Physical prowess

Despite the fact that she lived in a luxurious palace, Ursa had enough physical resistance to survive in the Forgetful Valley with Noren's help.

Graphic novels


  • During the 2008 San Diego Comic-con, it was announced that a reunion between Ursa and Zuko had been arranged and made into a storyboard by director Joaquim Dos Santos, but was later dropped just before the finale was finished at the request of show co-creator Michael Dante DiMartino for reasons unknown.[15]
  • Ursa never appeared in the present timeline of the television series. Her story was told in flashbacks and later via comics.
  • The word ursa means bear in Latin, which fits Ursa's protectiveness of her children, similar to how female bears are notoriously protective of their cubs.
  • The play Ursa rehearsed over and over was the same she showed to her children during their vacations, which they played as the Dark Water Spirit (Zuko) and the Dragon Emperor (Azula) several times later. Her son was very fond of the play, as seen for conserving his mask in the next years.
  • Ozai had Ursa watched for months prior to their arranged marriage, which allowed him to immediately know that her test letter to Ikem claiming Zuko as their son was false.[4]
  • Ironically, the last thing Ursa told Zuko before leaving was to never forget who he was, but she herself forgot who she was for years.
  • Ursa is the only known person to have been in more than one marriage.
  • Ursa is one of two known characters in the Avatar franchise to have had children with two different men, the other being Toph Beifong.
  • During Azula's hallucinations, Ursa acted as Azula's moral consciousness and most kind side. Yet, Azula perceived her mother as someone who conspired against her since birth out of fear. She thought that Ursa controlled everyone around her, including Ozai, and told them her weaknesses if she thinks they are useful (like Mai, Ty Lee, and even Team Avatar).


  1. According to sketchbook notes of The Search (Omnibus edition), Ursa was twenty-one when she and Ozai got married, the same year Azulon was eighty-five, which would place the date of the wedding at 85 AG.[2] However, Azulon's age must be a mistake, as Zuko was born in 83 AG.[3] As a result, Ursa's birth date can only be roughly estimated based on the dates provided by The Search.
