Zeisan was a princess of the Fire Nation and the sister of Fire Lord Sozin. She embraced Air Nomad philosophy and intended to swear off her earthly possessions in exchange for a life of austerity.[1]

History

Zeisan was born without firebending and spent her childhood pitted against her brother Sozin to prove her worthiness, with the two siblings having fought for as long as they could both remember.[2] To survive her family, she devoted herself to Air Nomad training under Sister Rioshon, who taught her many skills, including chi-blocking. During training, Zeisan and Rioshon fell in love, but their pairing was not advantageous to Zeisan's dynasty-toppling ambitions. Their love went unvoiced, as both women understood that there were greater things at stake than their own personal happiness.[3]

Soon after her brother's coronation, Zeisan announced her intention to marry Khandro, a popular Air Nomad philosopher and the leader of a renegade group known as the Guiding Wind, proposing a political marriage to him. She wished to renounce her titles and wealth in favor of a spiritual life, and her example was popular enough that other young nobles vowed to do the same. In the Guiding Wind, Zeisan sensed the destabilizing element she needed to undermine her brother. Zeisan and Khandro had a similar understanding: both had a lot to gain from working together as allies to take down the Fire Nation nobility.[3][4]

She knew that Sozin became sloppy when he was angry, and wondered if she could trick him into revealing his schemes to her. She had seen Sozin's avarice firsthand and knew that it was only a matter of time until he made a big move to show off his power. While she knew that political backstabbing was not in line with Air Nomad ideals, she was willing to abide that evil if it meant that she could ultimately do good. Sozin could not control his rage when Zeisan proposed to Khandro, and saw the Guiding Wind's beliefs as a threat, which he was willing to stop by any means necessary, and refused to back down from fighting Zeisan now that he was Fire Lord.[2]

Personality

Zeisan shared the intensity of her brother Sozin and doubted her own ability to be good, but she was focused on dismantling her family's corruption. She was very ambitious and sought to undermine her brother's rule.[4]

Abilities

Zeisan was born a nonbender, but she became a skilled chi-blocker under the tutelage of Rioshon. She was also dedicated to political manoeuvring, such as planning a political marriage with the leader of the Guiding Wind.[4]
