Princess Azula

== Azula is a complex young woman. Ever since she was born, she was raised by her father to be a cruel, ruthless firebender and to manipulate people by controlling them through fear. She is a dedicated nationalist, relentlessly drilling herself towards perfection and will settle for nothing less.Even as a child she was seen to react with hostility when outdone. In a flashback, a young Azula is shown pushing Ty Lee over after Ty Lee beats her at cartwheeling.  She is rather vain and believes that power and domination are what makes a person strong. She is known for being one of the cruelest characters in the series. From a young age, Azula demonstrated symptoms of psychopathy, manifesting as aggression and lack of remorse. She lacks empathy, treats people as expendable, and seems unable to view them as her equals. Azula also appears incapable to see or even feel love. In Book three, 'The Beach', she attempts to flirt with a boy, but terrifies him instead. Along with being emotionless, Azula feels nothing when others talk of love. "In The Boiling Rock 2" after Mai (Azula's long time friend) disobeys Azula and saves Zuko's life says,"I love Zuko more than I fear you." This infuriates Azula and she throws Mai in prison. Her cruelty and seemingly total lack of compassion extends to many born into her family. Her amorality also accounts for her ability to create lightning, as the skill requires peace of mind.

Ironically, for all her refinement and self-confidence, Azula does retain some insecurities. Although she is shown as a good strategist and capable of predicting what her enemies will do, she has a disadvantage in ordinary social situations. In particular, she does not know how to act around teenage boys, whom she tends to intimidate. Her over-competitive nature surfaces during a Kuai ball game, where, despite its being a friendly game, she turns an opponent's slight lameness against her and overly crushes her, comparing the game to an act of war. She later admits to jealousy of Ty Lee's ability to attract potential sweethearts and is shown deliberately exploiting her companions' emotional weaknesses for no apparent purpose other than her own amusement. It later becomes apparent that her bullying and abusive treatment of people, even "friends" such as Mai and Ty Lee, stems not only from her cruel nature but a deep-rooted fear and inability to trust others. From a young age, she believed her mother favored Zuko and thought Azula monstrous. This shaped Azula's fears that she would be unable to rely on anyone for affection. Unable to trust others, she instead tries to dominate them through fear - a paranoia that ultimately drives her insane following the betrayal of her closest friends. Ironically, it was through the affections her friends had for others that ultimately allowed them to defy her terror against them, a fact Azula cannot understand due her isolated nature. Above all, she is obsessed with pleasing her father.                                                                                       ==
