|Chronological and political information|
Gaza is a Fire Islands warlord and one of the primary antagonists of the trilogy. Initially hoping to conquer lands within the proto-Earth Kingdom as a result of frequent conflicts with rivaling Fire Islands warlords, he eventually forges an unlikely partnership with a fellow warlord named . This partnership is the result of their mutual dislike of and hostility towards the spirits, for having the ability to transcend into the physical world both during and the days prior to the solstices, even after Wan ordered the spirits back to the Spirit World and closed the spirit portals.
This anger extends towards the other nations, who are more lenient towards the spirits. Consequently, both warlords wageagainst the other nations, intending to enslave or kill those who are more sympathetic towards the spirits. Ultimately, it is who vows to defend the spirits and other nations from the wrath of the onslaught.
Whereas Maku is considered the "brawn" of the warlord duo, Gaza is considered the "brains". He is intelligent, incredibly tactical, and (somewhat) calmer in demeanor compared to Maku. Onceescapes from imprisonment in his temporary Fire Islands encampment with the aid of Singi, he begins to harbor a disdainful grudge towards the earthbender in particular, displaying more anger than he usually demonstrates, other than on the battlefield.
Not much is known of Gaza's past and upbringing. Like Maku, by the time he makes his first appearance in Book 2, he had conquered a fair amount of territory in the Fire Islands. However, due to multiple conflicts with opposing warlords, in addition to hassles with the spirits around the time of the solstices, he and his army moved east to attempt to settle in lands within the main proto-Earth Kingdom continent. Not long beforehand, Maku did the same for the same reasoning, leading to the two warlords forging their unlikely partnership. Unlike the proto-Water Tribe and Air Nomads, who held friendly relations with the spirits, and the proto-Earth Kingdom, who viewed the spirits with relative respect (so long as conflicts did not erupt), the warlords viewed the spirits with hostility. Although the spirits were mainly present during the summer and winter solstices, in addition to the days prior to the phenomena, the warlords were regardless, angered that the spirits were able to transcend to the physical world, even with the spirit portals closed by Wan. Finding the spirits a nuisance to their common goal of conquering land, they believed that the spirits should remain within the Spirit World, and that the Avatar has failed humanity as a result of the spirits' ability to cross between worlds, despite the closing of the spirit portals.
