19 (Born 6PA)
Firebending, Armed/Unarmed Wushu
Zsinji Jinroh was a Firebender and was the third Avatar to be born after the end of the war. Since Avatar Aang had been killed two years after ending the war there were no Airbenders left, meaning that after Zsinji's death the Avatar would not be able to reincarnate in the next stage of the cycle, making Zsinji the last Avatar.
Zsinji was born in Shu Jing in 6PA, within a day of the death of Avatar Konchii, who had been assassinated by unknown assailants, as had both his predecessors, Aang and . Firelord Zuko realised that the only way that the assailants could have tracked both of the previous Avatars, who had both only been children and did not yet know of their own destiny, was if they knew the choosing rituals and had infiltrated the temple ranks. In order to protect the Avatar, due to reincarnate as a Firebender, Zuko decreed that no child be tested and that the identity of the Avatar remain hidden to everyone. Expecting to be able to identify the Avatar later due to the child's exceptional skills, Zuko's actions saved Zsinji and allowed his power to remain unknown, even to himself. Living as a regular child, Zsinji stayed in Shu Jing until the age of 6, at which point his parents sent him abroad to study Bending at the 's western academy, located in the Western Air Temple. Here he studied basic Firebending, alongside waterbenders and earthbenders, to gain a truly global sense of the world, in keeping with Fire Lord Zuko's hopes for the future. Alongside Bending, Zsinji learned many other skills, learning cultural arts such as dance, poetry and tea-making, as well as studying basic mechanical theories and also combat training.
Zsinji's main martial focus was in armed combat, rather than Firebending, as he believed his Bending power to be of only average strength. Because of his avoidance of mastering Firebending, Zsinji remained unidentified as the Avatar until his Avatar State was triggered during an Agni Kai at the age of 18. Once revealed as the Avatar, Zsinji was sent to Zuko's palace, to master Firebending with the Firelord himself, in order to prepare Zsinji for the journey to learn the other three elements. The Firelord trained Zsinji exhaustively in the basics of both the dominant and lost styles of Firebending, forcing him to hone his skills over a period of a year, until he was considered to be a Flame Masterbender, first dan. At the completion of his training, Firelord Zuko determined Zsinji to be ready to seek out his destiny as the Avatar, and dispatched him on a mission to find any remnant of Airbender knowledge, in order to learn the ways of the Air Nomads as the cycle dictated.
Firelord Zuko was aware of the fact that tracking down Air Nomad knowledge and learning how to Airbend would be an almost insurmountable challenge for a single person and so to facilitate the mission he assigned Zsinji, as well as his friend and rival Four Unified Nations Cooperative Advancement Organisation, commonly known by the nickname of the Worldbenders. Zsinji was assigned a taskforce of personnel, named the , to assist him, as well as access to all of the Worldbenders' significant political and physical resources., to serve with the
Behind the scenes

Zsinji's physical likeness is taken from Roy Mustang of the anime series Fullmetal Alchemist, since there are plenty of pictures of Mustang using his fire alchemy and at other times, which can be used to illustrate the article with a consistent-looking character.
