Chronological and political information

Earth Kingdom

Elsi is a firebender who lives in the Earth Kingdom village of Midori. She was raised by her aunt after her parents were killed by the Fire Nation Army.


Early Life

Elsi was the firstborn and only child of Keden, a Fire Nation soldier forced to join the army, and Miri, a common Earth Kingdom woman. Keden had fallen in love with Miri during a Fire Nation attack on the Earth Kingdom, and she returned his love upon learning he wasn't a soldier of his own free will. Keden deserted the army and he and Miri hid away, as romance between them was forbidden by the Fire Nation. Unable to be legally married, they had a symbolic, private wedding and about a year later their daughter, Elsi, was born.

However, one week after this joyous event, the Fire Nation Army tracked down Keden and Miri. Keden ordered Miri to take Elsi and flee. He tried to fight the soldiers but was overpowered and killed. The soldiers then advanced on Miri, who concealed Elsi as well as she could and hid her under a bush outside. Just after this, the soldiers attacked and killed Miri, but they did not see Elsi and thus she survived.

The next day, Miri's sister Meimu heard the news that her sister and her sister's beloved had died. Meimu, being the only one who knew where the hideout was, quickly rushed to the scene, where she heard her niece's cries. Meimu adopted Elsi and raised her as her own.

When Elsi was still very little, Meimu introduced her to her childhood friend and next-door neighbor Maya. Little Elsi also met Maya's husband, Han, and daughter, Mihoshi, who was one year older than Elsi. Elsi and Mihoshi quickly became friends.

Elsi discovered she was a firebender when she was two years old. Meimu, Han and Maya were all frightened for Elsi, since if her bending was discovered she would become an outcast at best, and at worst be turned over to the Fire Nation, where she would be in danger because of her parents' forbidden romance. Thus, Meimu warned Elsi to keep her firebending a secret from everyone else, and Elsi did. When she turned four, Elsi used her firebending to make pretty lights and write messages with fire for the amusement of Mihoshi.

Birth of Leyka

When Elsi was six, Maya bore a second daughter, who she and Han named Leyka. Elsi viewed Leyka as her little sister as well as Mihoshi's. When Elsi was eight, she began firebending for Leyka's amusement. Leyka came to view Elsi as a big sister alongside Mihoshi, and as she got older she and Elsi became close friends.

The Frozen Forest

During the winter of 100 AG, Elsi was caught by surprise one night by the sheer strength of a blizzard. Upon investigating, she found out that the individual snowflakes were forcibly pushing everything away from a certain point. When the mysterious blizzard died down, Elsi walked in the direction she had been pushed away from and found that an entire section of the forest surrounding her village had been cut off by a wall of ice.

The next day, she informed Leyka about the strange occurrence. Leyka, in turn, told Mihoshi. Elsi was willing to show them both the ice wall, but when Mihoshi asked Elsi to melt it with her firebending, Elsi refused, fearing that danger lay beyond the wall. However, upon seeing Mihoshi's disappointment, Elsi had a sudden feeling that she just couldn't let Mihoshi down. Thus, Elsi bent a stream of fire at a part of the wall and slowly melted it, leaving a gap wide enough for people to cross. She and Leyka then followed Mihoshi through the gap.


Elsi is caring and friendly, but also serious at times. She is very protective of the people she cares about, since she fears they might be targeted like her parents were. Elsi is also secretive. She talks about her firebending to no one save Meimu and Mihoshi's family, and she does not let anyone else know she is a firebender.

When Elsi is with Mihoshi and/or Leyka, however, she shows her fun side. She likes exploring the forests with Leyka and Mihoshi, and if there is absolutely no one else around, she will make fire for their amusement. She especially likes melting snowballs during snowball fights in winter.




  • Elsi's name was inspired by Elsa from Disney's Frozen. It was created by taking the "e" off the end of the name "Elsie".
  • Elsi's character was initially inspired by Elsa from Frozen, as in "what if Elsa was a firebender?" I tweaked the story to make her into an original character rather than a duplicate of Elsa, giving Elsi control of her firebending and a different reason she hid it from all but family and close friends. She is also inspired by the character of Harry Potter, as both their parents were killed by the side of evil, and she shares personality traits with Harry as well as Elsa.
