Lee was born into poverty in Ba Sing Se's lower ring. His father was always at work, and his mother was very bitter towards him. He was an only child, but his parents never paid any attention to him. They were too busy fighting. One day his father didn't come home from work. This made his mother even more bitter and depressed. There were days she didn't get out of bed. Lee left Ba Sing Se when he was 14 years old. He travelled to Republic City to learn better earthbending skills. He found clues of the Kai's involvement in his fathers death while watching underground Agni Kais there, and that led him back to Ba Sing Se at age 20.
Lee, despite his tough childhood, has a very positive outlook on the world. He sees the best in any situation. Unlike Kuzon, Lee was not raised with it all, so he knows how to live without luxury.
Lee's use of earthbending was always frowned upon in his household. His father would come home to Lee playing with some rocks and he would become furious. His earthbending became very good over the years, and increased immensely when he went to Republic City to train with Lin Beifong. She taught him metalbending and seismic sense. He became a master quickly, and this gave him a confidence he never knew he had.
