char: general iroh

Whenever I look back on the early episodes of Avatar: the Last Airbender, I realize that Iroh was probably acting a little ridiculous on purpose. He knows that Zuko still has fresh emotional wounds from his cruel, uncompromising father and sadistic sister, and the one source of softness and warmth in his life, his mother, is long gone. Iroh always tried to be a friend to Zuko, but now that his nephew has been scarred and banished, he tries to be goofy and funny and carefree so desperately hard because all he wants is for Zuko to smile and relax again.  If making a fool out of himself is what he has to do, he’d do it a hundred times over.

Today’s excellent character of the day is General Iroh from The Legend of Korra!!

Iroh is the son of Fire Lord Izumi, grandson of Lord Zuko, and the youngest general in United Forces history!! Very impressive!! He’s a firebending master and quick learner!! This handsome, brave, and loyal man is always willing to do whatever he can to help out his friends! Keep on being excellent, Iroh!!!

okay but an AU where Iroh died during the siege on Ba Sing Se saving Lu Ten and Lu Ten is the one who travels through the spirit world trying to save his dad.

Then he has to go home to an uncle who doesn’t want him and watch his cousin get abused and eventually banished and goes with him.

But his journey with Zuko would be different because they are closer in age but Lu Ten is basically a younger Iroh.

Not only does Zuko have to deal with the confusing wisdom and tea obsession, Lu Ten also seems to flirt with girls everywhere they go which annoys Zuko to no end because he neEDS TO CAPTURE THE AVATAR TO RESTORE HIS HONOR


I think this part is really over looked by a lot of people it shows how much Iroh loves and cares for Zuko, and how he wants the best for him but at his own rate. Zuko shows no emotion but Iroh knows the feeling is mutual, I think it’s amazing and sweet of Iroh to give up his whole title for Zuko just to help him succeed and In the end forgives Zuko for all his mistakes and the horrible things he has done. Even when he was locked in prison
