How Sozin joined the Tourney
Sozin was the instigator of the Hundred Year War and the Fire Lord before his son, Azulon. He was grandfather to Iroh and Ozai and great-grandfather to Lu Ten, Zuko, and Azula.
As a young prince, Sozin was best friends with Avatar Roku. However, after Sozin took up the throne and Roku became a Fully Realized Avatar, their friendship became strained, as Sozin desired the Fire Nation to encompass the entire world, a plan to which Roku was strongly opposed. Following a confrontation over this which ended in Sozin's defeat, neither spoke to the other until they were seventy years old. Upon meeting the Avatar again, Sozin left his old friend to die, and began a war that would last one hundred years.
Using the fire-enhancing power of a comet, Sozin eradicated the Air Nomads in an attempt to preemptively eliminate the next Avatar, but failed. He spent the last years of his life hunting the new Avatar in vain.
He was resurrected by Quan Chi for the purpose of hunting down the Avatar. He hopes to pay him back for eluding him when Sozin's Comet last came. However, a pony named Twilight Sparkle stands before him.
