Katara: I’m sorry I reacted the way I did… You’re from the Fire Nation…
Zuko: Oh, well, I’m not with the Fire Nation anymore; it’s just me.
Katara: [sympathetically] Just you? Just you, how could that be?
Zuko: Well, I- I was the Fire Nation prince, but they kicked me out.
Zuko: Ah, well, you know how sometimes there’ll be a pack of coyote-hawks that are feasting on a rabbit-lizard, and there’s always one small, runt of a coyote-hawk that’s being kept from the meal?
Katara: [understandingly] Yes.
Zuko: I’m like the rabbit-lizard.
