[16] Iroh later judged that his childhood had been a difficult experience. Iroh invented this by observing the fluidity of waterbending moves and their ability to effectively redirect chi. During his childhood he was often favored by his father Azulon which led to his distant relationship with his brother Ozai. [35] He appeared laid-back because he understood that there were things in life he could not control, but he also believed that a person is fully responsible for the parts they can. He had also advised Aang[6] and Toph[12] to great effect. Iroh turned him down, but Zhao insisted the position was still offered anyway. [43] When June was unable to find Aang, Zuko had her track down his uncle, knowing that he was the only other possible person who could defeat the Fire Lord. At the same time, he was able to show truly destructive power when provoked, able to blast through the inner wall of Ba Sing Se with a large and highly charged fire blast. Zuko later angrily went to the Fire Nation jail tower and, bursting into his cell, accused Iroh of having sent him the message. Iroh was a gifted strategist and tactician, having once been the Fire Nation's top general and next in line to become Fire Lord. He had the royal headpiece stashed behind one of the cell's bricks. [26] Iroh subsequently accompanied Zuko on his quest to find the Avatar, and it was through Iroh's influence that Zuko was able to procure a ship and a crew.[26]. Iroh confessed that he never had, stating that parents cannot protect their children forever, and the best they can do is teach them to face fear with unclouded eyes. Iroh and Zuko's relationship was praised for its authenticity and humor. Starting in season two after Zuko and Iroh have to go on the run and hide from the Fire Nation, Zuko starts to see more of the world and realize maybe the Fire Nation was wrong. Interestingly, Iroh had planned to escape on the Day of Black Sun beforehand, implying he knew not only of this firebending weakness but also knew when an eclipse was going to occur, despite none of this information being public knowledge. For almost a year, Iroh was oblivious to the events that transpired at Yu Dao. But he's not beating a character as versatile as Kya. Iroh was shown again, calmly lying on the ground deep in thought. Eventually, Ursa confessed her concerns that Kiyi will never accept her change in face, though Iroh encouraged her not to lose hope. [62] He was also addressed as "handsome" on multiple occasions. tip: katekyou "alternate universe" sort:>words, “Nobody said loving you was going to be easy. The episode "The Tales of Ba Sing Se", which aired on September 29 of that year, contained a segment titled "The Tale of Iroh" that ended with a dedication to Mako. [45], Iroh was able to see the spirit of Aang riding Roku's dragon when no one else could. Soon after, Iroh and Zuko tracked her down and hired her to find Aang, using the scent from Katara's necklace. [9] His knowledge of the spirits and their world is immense, as he was later in life able to consciously depart his soul to the Spirit World, where he was welcomed.[15]. Ozai is the exact opposite of weak, in terms of combat ability as well as force of … Iroh admitted to having sent the message and explained that the message Zuko needed to discover about his great-grandfather's death did not refer to his paternal great-grandfather, Sozin, but his maternal great-grandfather, Avatar Roku. However, Zuko thought otherwise, and the two separated. He’s not sure she does, though. Iroh, like Jeong Jeong, knew its destructive and alluring power which could cause an amateur firebender to lose control. Baldwin's vocal timbre is lighter than Mako's, but he replicated Mako's unique accent, pronunciation, syllable stressing, and gravelly undertones in his performance rather than using a different style. In his teen years, however, his ability began to develop significantly under his Uncle Iroh's tutelage, most noticeably during the last year of the Hundred Year War.
