The Life of Azula: What Happened After the Series? (Avatar Explained)

Azula

princess of the fire nation might be one of the most fascinating characters in The Last Airbender

series

many of you have asked me to explain

Azula

and because it's such an interesting topic I decided to double down and make a video about her

life

this video will not only cover the original show but I'm going to gather information about it from all over before during and after the

series

and I'm going to bring it all together into one video now let's get this video started
the life of azula what happened after the series avatar explained
as I

explained

the entire

life

of

Azula

so far

Azula

was the second-born the Prince Ozai and princess Ursa her older brother Zuko being the first she was named after her grandfather fire lord azulon who was the Fire Lord when she was born and during her early childhood she was a prodigy firebender and at one point she had mastered 14 more forms of firebending than her older brothers you go she attended the Royal Fire Academy for Girls where she met her two best friends may entirely as Ulla
became the leader of their little group and as Ulla bossing the other two around became the thing that defined their friendships

Azula

and her family had a tradition to go to ember island where they had a beach house there they would see their mother's favorite play love amongst dragons something that both she and Zuko enjoyed one of the few things they agreed on her mother Ursa quickly realized that something was seriously wrong with their daughter she had no remorse and no sense of right
and wrong she did things like burned flowers on the palace grounds burn a doll sent to her as a present from her uncle and was a master manipulator and bully one day she said a firebending teacher's pants on fire when he told her that she wasn't doing the forms right while her mother Ursa saw all of this is bad her father owes I saw it is good and she quickly became his favorite he began to raise

Azula

as his heir rather than his oldest Zuko

Azula

not only impressed her father but her
grandfather whom she was named after as well even though

Azula

had the approval from her father she never got that from her mother she always thought that her mother favorite Zuko and never took her side this made her desperate for her mother's attention which might be one of the reasons why she lashed out so much in front of her mother she was jealous of the attention and Zuko got from her and resentful towards both of them because of this one night when the family was having dinner as I
told you go off saying that his doula was born lucky and that Zuko was lucky to be born

Azula

was happy to see her father stand up for her but when Earth's a shot back at Ozai and stood up for Zuko her father's praise wasn't enough to fill the desire of her mother's praise

Azula

had a tendency for malice and perfection and these traits came out a great deal when she was with her friends Mae and Ty Lee one day Ty Lee did a cartwheel after

Azula

had just failed trying to do the
same she shoved her lead to the ground out of jealousy and laughed while she did so that same day when she saw Mae attempting to hide her crush on

azula

's brother Zuko

Azula

used her manipulation to convince her mother to make Zuko play with them during their game she placed an apple on Mays head and set it on fire this for Sukkot it's a koumei into a fountain to put out the fire

Azula

laughed finding great pleasure and embarrassing both of them she encouraged her friends to do bad
things one day when a stool ax and Ty Lee had a sleepover in Mae's house

Azula

convinced them to steal mochi from May's mother which was a present meant for mais grandmother

Azula

ended up eating at all because Ty Lee got bad energy from it and although she didn't say it out loud they didn't want to eat it because she was scared of the Camorra casa ancient spirits that her parents order with snatcher if he did anything wrong in her sleep Mei tossed and turned and said that the
camera cos they were going to get her this kept

Azula

up all night

Azula

was also very competitive with her friends so much so that she went to new lengths to win that things as simple as hide-and-seek she would use tunnels and secret passageways that she found while exploring and used them to win something that Ty Lee and Meg grew very tired of one day

azula

's father oz I asked

azula

's grandfather fire lord azulon if he could become Fire Lord rather than his older brother Iroh

Azula

listened as her grandfather became furious with her father he said that Iroh had just lost a son and as punishment for asking for the throne as I was to lose his son as well

Azula

went to tell us Zuko this laughing as she did so but she was interrupted by their mother her sir dragged

Azula

out of the room and asked

Azula

what

she heard an

Azula

told her everything

Azula

acted as though she was upset about the whole situation but as she walked away she was smiling evilly this would be the last
time she saw her mother for many years as her mother mysteriously vanished after that night the last thing that she said to her mother was full of manipulation and lies the things that she was best at this was not the last time ursus all

Azula

however Ursa went into azules room while she was sleeping and kissed her on the cheek saying goodbye how does Ulla known this things might have turned out differently

Azula

was very unaffected by both the death of her grandfather and her mother
disappearing in one night she did however enjoy telling Zuko and Zuko told her that she was sick when Zuko tried to get his knife back from

Azula

she rubbed their mother disappearing in his face even more saying that mom wasn't there to help him this time when Ozai was crowned Fire Lord

Azula

watching Glee flee with a big smile on her face after her mother's disappearance oza began to favor a Sulha more and more over Zuko this became most clear when

Azula

watched smiling and ruining her
father on as he burned Zuko's face giving him a permanent scar he then banished Zuko from the Fire Nation until he captured the

avatar

with Zuko being gone this officially made a Zula become ozai's heir to the throne

Azula

continued a firebending training and became so good that she could produce blue fire along with lightning

Azula

got her first official task from her father when he sent her to find and capture Zuko and her uncle Iroh saying that they were traitors she found both of
them and lied to Zuko saying that he would be welcomed home with open arms right before they were about to leave one of the guards called them prisoners and the two got away forcing

Azula

off the boat and into the water after failing on her first attempt to get them she enlisted the help of her childhood friends Mei and tightly while in Omashu

Azula

seized the city in the name of her father naming it the city of new Ozai and she stripped mais father who Khanna from his governor rank while she
was there she ran into the

and she told her friends that Zuko and Iroh weren't the only targets anymore now they had to capture the

avatar

as well on her mission

Azula

utilized Fire Nation technology such as the tank trained wall in pursuit of her targets she came face-to-face with all three of her targets at one point but realized that she was outnumbered and blasted her uncle with blue fire to get away

Azula

tried to get through the impenetrable walls of Ba Sing se using a giant
the life of azula what happened after the series avatar explained
Fire Nation drill she was almost successful but was stopped by team

avatar

Azula

along with Mei and Ty Lee eventually ran into the Kyoshi warriors a fight broke out in which the Kyoshi warriors lost and

Azula

Mei and Ty Lee took their armor they used that armor to go to Ba Sing se and rather than infiltrate it from the outside

Azula

decided to infiltrate it from the inside she fooled the earth King to make him think that they were real Kyoshi warriors the earth Kingdom trader and former minister
longfang recognized the Zula as the Fire Nation princess however he had his Dai Li agents bring her down to a cell to make a deal that you worked well together conquering Ba Sing se but eventually

Azula

betrayed longfang and took control of his Dai Li agents Long Feng ended up bowing down to her and said that she had beaten him at his own game Missoula was in disguise of the Kyoshi warrior she learned of a plot to attack the Fire Nation when the solar eclipse came it would cover up the Sun
making the firebenders lose their power it was at that time the team

avatar

and an army behind them planned to infiltrate the Fire Nation

Azula

was again faced with all three of her targets Hugo Iroh and the

Avatar

but this time she played her cards differently she promised Zuko that he could come home to the Fire Nation as Crown Prince and with his help she was able to capture Iroh and strike the

avatar

with

what

looked like a killing blow however

Azula

was doubtful that she had actually killed
him and because of this she gave credit to Zuko when they returned home to their father Zuko didn't want to leave at first he had to be persuaded to do this

Azula

with the help of Ty Lee set up a date for Mei and Zuko she hoped that his feelings for Mei would persuade him to come home before she left Ba Sing se

Azula

made Judy in charge and dubbed her as bureaucratic administrator

Azula

thought that she was the perfect person for the job when they returned both

Azula

and her brother were
welcomed back as war heroes one weekend

Azula

along with Mei Tai Lee and Zuko all went to ember island to the beach house where their family went every summer when they were little well their resume looks like advantage of no one knowing who she was this way she could experience

life

as a normal 14 year old her competitiveness came out during a game of volleyball and everyone thought that she was crazy and annoying later on she made a guy rush away from her when she was too overbearing after
they kissed she again became jealous of Ty Lee who got all of the attention from the boys she later laughed when Zuko called Ty Lee a circus freak seeking out ty Lee's pain because she was jealous that she was better than her at something

Azula

later opened up about how their mother like Zuko better and said that she didn't care but after she said this she paused and looked into the fire with the very hurt look on her face she then began to dig deeper and said with definite sadness in
her voice my own mother thought I was a monster when they returned to the Fire Nation

Azula

spoke up in a war council meeting she and her father came up with the idea to use sozin's comet which would give firebenders immense power to destroy the earth Kingdom once and for all she also warned them about the solar eclipse attack

what

's helped them prepare for it they planned for Ozai to not be there when the occurred ruining team

avatar

's whole plan during the Eclipse invasion azules
stall team

avatar

allowing for the very short Eclipse to pass when it passed and she got a firebending back she drove them off and allowed the Fire Nation of victory when

Azula

went to the prison the boiling rock her longtime friends may entirely turned on her pilot she bucked

Azula

making her fall to the ground completely helpless and unable to move she told them that they should have feared her more she then told the guards to take them somewhere where she would never have to see their faces
again and said to let them rot this is

what

made us doula start to become unhinged and she became a little bit mental

Azula

later confronted Zuko who had changed sides in the Western air temple which you began to fight and were both knocked off the airship Zuko was caught by Appa but Zuko watched and it looked like the end for

Azula

but she caught herself by launching herself with fire and grabbing onto a cliff she watched as they flew away knowing that the battle wasn't over Oh as I made as
ulla successor as Fire Lord while he set into motion his plan to become supreme ruler of all nations and the world this made her mental health go downhill even more she had a full mental breakdown she banished her servants imperial firebenders and Oliver Dai Li agents paranoid that she couldn't trust them and that they would turn on her just like Mai and Ty Lee did she then became paranoid that her father didn't think she could handle being Fire Lord and she said that she would become
the greatest leader in Fire Nation history while getting ready for her coronation

Azula

cut off her hair and then she had a schizophrenic episode seeing her mother who told her it was a shame because her hair was so beautiful she began to have a conversation with her mother that she was envisioning telling her that she knew

what

she really thought of her that she was a monster her mother pointed out to her that all of her

life

to use fear to control people

Azula

responded saying that trust was
for fools and fear was the only reliable way she then said in a sad and uncharacteristically unconfident way that even she her mother feared her her mother told her that that wasn't true and said that she loved her

Azula

consumed by emotion in the past desperate for her mother's approval began to cry that was all that she wanted to hear but this was too much she wanted these emotions to go away she picked up her brush and threw it at the mirror where she was envisioning her mother's
reflection at her coronation Zucco showed up before she was crowned Fire Lord

Azula

then challenged her brother to an Agni Kai a fight for the throne Zuko knew that he could beat her because something was off about her she was slipping when

Azula

was losing she decided to shoot guitar with lightning instead of Zuko and Zuko jumped in front of it saving Katara

Azula

more crazy than ever then began to fight Katara she was eventually beaten by Katara and she went full psycho screaming and spitting
out blue fire from her mouth she rived on the floor her screams slowly started to transition into desperate and pathetic cries she had lost everything including her mind missoula was taken to an insane asylum where she was watched 24/7 to make sure she didn't escape or do anything bad she continued to have schizophrenic episodes imagining her mother which continued to drive her further into insanity she started to think back to all that had

happened

to her and she came to the crazy
the life of azula what happened after the series avatar explained
conclusion that her mother had gotten to her friend's Zuko and everyone else that played a part in her downfall around 1 to 2 years later Zuko went to the asylum to ask

Azula

for help to figure out the truth about

what

happened

to their mother

Azula

agreed and as she did so she saw her mother in the mirror next to where she told Zuko that not a day had gone by since he put her in there that she hadn't wondered

what

happened

to their mother the first thing Zuko had

Azula

to was visit Ozai
in prison during this she was guarded by the Kyoshi warriors including her ex friends Ty Lee

Azula

and Ozai sat in silence not even saying so much as high when Zuko brought auntie

Azula

bit the tray toward out of Zuko's hands and knocks you go over which made their father smile

Azula

angrily asked to go how he expected her to drink tea while she was in a straitjacket Kyle even jumped in and she blocked

Azula

Azula

screams and ask Kylie how she made her loser fear of her the she that

Azula

was referencing was her schizophrenic thoughts of her mother

Azula

has to go to let her knows I talk in private and Zuko agreed after Ty Lee and Zuko laughed Ty Lee told Zuko that

Azula

was wrong she never lost her fear of her while in private Oh as I told his doula about one of his secret chambers in the palace and a bunch of letters that her mother er sorrow he told her that he had collected them and made sure that they weren't to whom they were addressed after

Azula

and Ozai finished
talking Zuko took a Zula alone and asked her

what

they talked about before he could find out however

Azula

blasted him with lightning and got out of her straitjacket she ran to the chamber that Jose had told her about and when Zuko got there she told him that those letters were the key to finding their mother when Zuko took a step forward she burned all of the letters when Zuko asked

what

was wrong with her she screamed why don't you ask her that again talking about her mother who she was
convinced was out to get her

Azula

joined Zuko and team

avatar

on a mission to find their mother was dueling made a deal with Zuko because she knew

what

the letter said Zuko had to take her unbound and of her own free well otherwise she wouldn't tell him

what

the letter said she neglected to tell Zuko one thing however she got one letter which said that Jose wasn't due close father this was her key to taking the throne as it was not Sukkos birthright if that was true while flying on Appa

Azula

asked the group which of them she approached first she then belted out that none of them had even met her yet so how did she convince them to help ruin her

life

Azula

later jumped off of Appa and tried to get away so that she could find her mother on her own as

Azula

was running from Zuko she saw her mother and the reflection of the water she began to scream at the reflection she told her mother that she couldn't break her and that she was stronger than she realized she screamed out
you've been conspiring to take me down from the day I was born even when I was an infant you saw in me something you never had power that's why you think I'm a monster my power makes you fear me the reflection of her mother that she was imagining told her that she loved her and

Azula

screamed out consumed by anger confusion and her mental illness she then turned around and hit the water with her bending as she told her mother that this was her most treacherous act turning her own
mind against her Zuko then approached and asked who she was talking to before Zuko could get the answer however Katara wrapped

Azula

in ice all of them were then attacked by a spirit wall and none of them could fight it off Zuko Freitas Ulala and she used her immense power to drive the spirit off single-handedly while

Azula

was asleep she was again woken by her schizophrenic thoughts of her mother this time her mother told her to give up her quest her mother then told her that all her

life

she
hid behind a mass of intimidation and fear

Azula

began to blast her mother but before she did so she started questioning everything Katara stepped in and snaps her out of her schizophrenic state when

Azula

realized that the letter she had saved was gone she confronted Zuko again who had taken it go too far and the Zuko eventually beat her and screamed out from the day you were born you've put me through so much why

Azula

why the relationship have to be like this she has to go if she was
whispering in his ear telling him to say this and Zuko told her that she was making no sense later on after everyone had calmed down

Azula

and Zuko watched love amongst dragons which made the two bond as they remembered their childhood on ember islands while there they were invited to a family's home by a man named Eiko there they met his wife Noriko and their daughter Kiki later

Azula

Zuko and team

avatar

went into forgetful Valley and team

avatar

began to help a brother and sister in need

Azula

then thought that her mother orchestrated this whole meeting with the siblings and she tried to go after them Zuko and team

avatar

stopped her but during the fight the mother of faces appeared she told them that she could grant one wish and before the siblings who had waited many years to have this wish

Azula

stepped in and stolen asking the mother faces where her mother was the mother of faces told her that their mother was now disguised as Noriko the woman part of the family that they
had just met

Azula

went after her immediately slipping away from the group when she got to the house she zapped her way through the ceiling kicked Zuko out of the way and jumped order mother

Azula

was ready to give the final killing blow but Noriko who had her memory erased of her

life

in the Fire Nation caressed her face and told her that she was sorry that she didn't love her enough tears began to fill in as ULA's eyes all she wanted her whole

life

was a mother's love and approval

Azula

had frozen and in that hesitation Zuko jumped in between the tail

Azula

shot lightning and Zuko and he absorbed it and shot it back she told Zuko that she wanted to get rid of her so she could stop seeing her mother in her head Zuko then told her no and said that no matter

what

she still had him that she would always be his sister

Azula

told him to shut up and she escaped the house Zuko and Noriko ran after her Zuko telling her that he could help her

Azula

turned around and told Zuko that
even when he's strong he's weak she then ran off into the cliffs in the far distance Zucco search forgetful valley for weeks but he eventually came to the conclusion that she didn't want to be found Missoula was in exile for quite some time during that time she realized

what

a true destiny was it was not to be on the throne and it wasn't to make her father become Fire Lord again either her destiny was to turn Zuko into

what

she and Ozai represented she wanted to make him ruthless
after figuring out her destiny two things followed the voices in her head stopped and she regained her strength she was no longer weak or slipping the way she had been since the finale of the original

series

she came up with a plan and broke out a bunch of girls from the asylum that she was in before she used the old memory of when she may entirely stole Mae's mother's mochi she remembered Mae saying that the Camorra Koshchei were going to get her in her sleep

Azula

later found out that
the Chimera Koshchei were ancient spirits that abducted children

Azula

and her Asylum friends that she had broken out dressed up as the spirits which was part of

azula

's larger plan to make Zuko like her and Ozai they first went to scare okano Mae's father and the leader of the new Ozai Society a group they wanted to go out of the throne and Ozai back in it she told him dressed as the chimera kasha that if he did not get rid of Zuko then he would suffer Meccano failed which

Azula

predicted and wanted it was just the first step of her plan to turn Zuko into her in Ozai when

Azula

came back who Kondo begged her for another month to get the job done when he failed after a month

Azula

showed okano her true identity and showed him that she and her friends weren't spirits in a way this was even scarier to okano he had dealt with her before when she stripped him of his governor rank and took over Omashu the city that he was governing when she revealed her true identity she
forced him to help her with the next step of her plan which was to start kidnapping children Josas the original camera kaze spirits had done before she forced him to drain his bank account to make a headquarters where they would keep the kids the first child is she and her Asylum friends kidnapped was reconnaissance team Tom they kidnapped many more kids and used smoke and secret passageways for quick escapes that made it look like they magically disappeared

Azula

of course knew of all of these
due to her years of exploring in her youth and when the same tunnels that she used while playing hide and seek with Megan Ty Lee one night

Azula

kidnapped her half-sister Kiki the daughter of Ursa during her

life

is Noriko during this kidnapping she was stopped and cornered and was forced to shoot lightning to escape which revealed her identity to Zuko Ty Lee Aang and Suki

Azula

continued to play with you canö eventually revealing that she never intended for Ozai to end up on the throne as you
canö had been promised she ordered him to start a riot which made Zuko look even worse to the Fire Nation again all part of

azula

's plan to make Zuko look more ruthless after this who cano begged her to released the kids and his son TomTom Android as she was putting the key in to unlock it she stopped and told him that she was keeping the kids longer when Zuko may Aang and Mays boyfriend kilo found where the kids were a fight between them and the asylum girls ensued

Azula

eventually got her
hands on kylo and may beg to Zula to leave him out of it when Zuko stepped in both Ian

Azula

gave each other everything that they had a battle that would have rivaled the Agni Kai they had at the end of the original

series

Azula

then fled and Zuko chased after her the to once again fought it out until

Azula

got the upper hand and was on top of Zuko to Zuko surprised she got off and

explained

her plan to her brother she pointed out that in the last few weeks he had become ruthless and like her
and Ozai when Zuko told her that she was wrong she vanished using smoke and left him with the parting words accept it it's who you are Zuko gave a speech saying that he was not the best ruler in the past few weeks an

Azula

and her Asylum friends dresses the Camaro Kasia watched from a far-off rooftop

Azula

said his speech was touching in a sarcastic voice and they vanished we'll have to wait and see
