The three kids to the right are a gang of some sort that I have named the “Fire Sellers”. I only have the vague idea that they somehow use firebending to earn a living on the streets. Maybe they do little odd jobs for the Triple Threat Triad…
Some insight into why I classified Gryffindors as Fire Benders (from ATLA):
Fire is (according to Uncle Iroh) the element of power. The fighting style of Fire Benders is very intense and almost completely offensive. Their technique is less about accuracy or waiting until the right moment, but throwing hit after hit in quick, steady succession until one lands.
This is similar to Gryffindor in that the overall mindset for them is “Go in, guns blazing” rather than “Wait until the perfect moment to strike.” Energetic, daring, and confrontational are very Fire Nation and Gryffindor.
Gryffindors can also easily get overwhelmed by their emotions and let it overtake their logic when it comes to a fight. This is very similar to Fire Benders because of the way that things like rage can help fuel their bending, but can also have disastrous consequences if they can’t keep it under control. Gryffindors can be quite hot-headed (hehe).
Gryffindors are also big partiers and performers, like the Fire Nation with its history of Festivals and Theatre.
And lastly, a very strong connection between the two is the strong sense of honor. Honor was certainly a large theme when it came to Zuko (to the point where it became a joke) but this is tied to how highly it was held in the Fire Nation. Citizens participate in Agni Kais to defend their honor if someone has disrespected them. Honor, bravery, and a sense of justice are very strong Fire Nation and Gryffindor traits.
Confession One: If anything, I’d ship Zutara, not because of Katara, but because Zuko has been everything in a guy I’d be attracted to since I was 10. I’m 16. I am in love with fire bender boys. Zuko, Mako, they are all.. well.. hot. Haha. But Zuko tops them all. <3
