General Iroh

The Six Hundredth Day is a series of short stories exploring the back story of Iroh, with a focus on the experiences that led to his disillusionment with the Fire Nation. The title is a reference to the 600-day Siege of Ba Sing Se, the conflict which cost Iroh his son, and had a significant effect on the Fire Nation Crown Prince.

This series of short stories does not focus on action. Because of the older age of the main character, the narrative will be much more reflective in nature, with prose to match the emotion of the scene.

Key questions

These are some questions this series will try to answer (not all may make the cut).

  • Iroh already knew about Ran and Shaw and the Sun Warriors at this point - he knew the true way of Firebending. Why did he proceed with the Siege anyway?
  • What was the nature of the relationship between Iroh and Azulon?
  • Why did Iroh decline to fight for his birthright, the position of Fire Lord?
  • Who is the more powerful Firebender - Iroh or Ozai?
  • Where did Iroh get the Crown Prince headpiece from?

Note about rating

The PG-13 rating is not due to any particularly graphic descriptions of violence or otherwise (there will be, of course, some violence). This rating is chosen to reflect the more complex themes and morals that will be explored; there may be a large amount of material that young readers do not fully understand, requiring guidance from an older individual.
