Ozai as he appears in Dennis Fielder's fanon.
In fics that take place after his defeat, Ozai is naturally disheveled, spending most of his time in his cell.
As before, in fics that take place after his defeat, Ozai is dejected and full of self-pity. However, before his rise as Fire Lord, he is shown to be highly similar to Zuko in his desire to get his father's respect, and like Azula in his enjoyment of ordering people around and in his lust for power.
HistoryUrsa, Iroh arrived and asked Ozai why he had to be so stubborn, having refused to tell Zuko where his mother was. Ozai responds by asking Iroh to leave him alone, which Iroh agrees to after finishing his roast duck, before pushing some roast moose-lion to Ozai, which he only takes a few bites of before pushing it aside.
At three years old, Prince Ozai had a dream where he scarred a younger version of himself and faced him down in a confrontation. When he woke up, Prince Ozai tried to piece it together to figure out what it meant, but he ended up not remembering it at all. Ozai then walked down to the dining room table and met up with his brother Iroh, his mother Illah, and his father Azulon. Ozai then admitted that he had a dream but couldn't remembering it, starring in awe at Iroh. Ozai then learned that after hanging out with Iroh for a bit after breakfast, he had to hangout with Ursa, who he didn't like very much. He agreed given that there wasn't any other option. At the courtyard, Ozai played with Ursa until he came up with a game to roast an apple with Firebending. While Ursa's Firebending didn't even make it to the halfway point, Ozai easily roasted the apple, demanding sugar from a servant before eating it, enjoying how easily he could demand the servants.
When he was ten, Ozai had begun his Firebending training as well as growing distant from Iroh because of his recent marriage and increased participation in the war effort. Ozai had also begun to be jealous of Iroh as he began noticing Azulon's favoritism towards him. Ozai had also become closer to Ursa, becoming minor friends. Ozai had also begun to develop a physical attraction to Ursa that earned him a slap when he starred at her still developing breasts. Ozai let it slide since they weren't actually married at the time. Shortly after this, a servant told Ozai that his mother was dying. Outraged, Ozai kicked the servant in the stomach before heading off. Ozai found his mother in time for her to apologize for not getting to see him grow up before dying. Afterwords, Ozai confronts the messenger and tells him never to bring him bad news again. Iroh then arrives and agrees to teach Ozai what he's been learning, which Ozai agrees to, as well as keeping it secret.
After six years of training, Ozai continued his training under Iroh and had developed his Lightning generation to use it far quicker than anyone else. At supper, while listening to Azulon brag about Iroh becoming the Dragon of the West, Ozai challenged Iroh to an Agni Kai, which Iroh accepted. The day before the duel, Ursa asked Ozai not to do it as he might die, but Ozai was confident that Iroh wouldn't take a life and kissed Ursa on the lips, making her remind him that she wanted to take things slow and left, making Ozai bang his head on the wall and call himself stupid. Just before the fight, Ozai apologizes to Ursa, and she kisses him on the cheek. Following that, Ozai completely dominates Iroh in the fight and makes him fall, winning the match. Expecting praise from Azulon for winning the match, especially after he praises Iroh for lasting as long as he did. Therefore, Ozai is shocked when Azulon accuses Ozai of spying on Iroh and storms off. This causes Ozai to shout at Iroh for always being in Azulon's good books and claiming that he hated Iroh from then on.
Two years after his Agni Kai, Ozai had a dream concerning a confrontation with the Avatar. Taking the dream as a sign, Ozai decided to search for the Avatar himself as his father and grandfather had done before him. When Ursa tried to stop Ozai, Ozai simply stated that it was his destiny to defeat the Avatar, and he would be known as Ozai the Destroyer or Ozai the Avatar Slayer. Ozai then asked for his father's blessing to search for the Avatar, which Azulon gave. Ozai was then confronted by Iroh, who doubted that Ozai could find him, Ozai simply said that he never failed and to stay out of his way unless he helped.
After six years of searching, Ozai turned up with not even a clue of where the Avatar was, though he'd stopped an uprising in Han Tui and claimed a small island outside the Earth Kingdom. Returning home in defeat, Ozai reported to Azulon and was surprised when Azulon praised his deligence and his battle victories. Afterwards, he accepted Iroh's condolences and kissed Ursa. The following year, he and Ursa married with Iroh as his best man. Two years after this, his son Zuko was born. A following two years later, his daughter Azula was born. Ozai promised himself he wouldn't favor Zuko simply for being the oldest, and he decided to start up the family vacations to Ember Island every summer.
The Life and Journeys of Ursa
Ozai was shown to play with the then three-year-old Ursa when they were little. Ozai then proposed a game where they had to roast an apple and won it easily. He then ordered sugar for the newly roasted apple from a servant.
By the age of ten, Ozai and Ursa had become minor friends and played with each other while their fathers were at war meetings. After Ozai ranted about how Azulon favored Iroh despite Ozai being stronger, Ozai changed the subject to their betrothment, and he ended up starring at her chest before she slapped him. He looked ready to attack before changing his mind. Soon after that, Ozai got news that his mother was dying, and he kicked the messenger in the stomach before going off.
The day before Ozai's Agni Kai with Iroh, Ursa confronted him and asked Ozai not to do it as he might die, but Ozai was confident that Iroh wouldn't take a life and kissed Ursa on the lips, making her remind him that she wanted to take things slow and left, Just before the fight, Ozai apologizes to Ursa, and she kisses him on the cheek. Following that, Ozai completely dominates Iroh in the fight and makes him fall, winning the match. However, he went off after the fight as Azulon had accused him of cheating.
When Ursa asked Ozai if something was wrong, Ozai exclaimed that he was going to hunt the Avatar. When Ursa tried to stop Ozai, Ozai simply stated that it was his destiny to defeat the Avatar, and he would be known as Ozai the Destroyer or Ozai the Avatar Slayer.
When Ozai returned, Ursa reunited with him, and the two kissed. The following year, he and Ursa married with Iroh as his best man. Two years after this, his son Zuko was born. A following two years later, his daughter Azula was born.
