|"All the warlords were cruel and ruthless, but worst of them was a brute named Toz. Feast or famine, Toz demanded annual tributes from all the villages in his territory."|
|— Mai reading about Toz in a historical scroll.|
Toz was an infamous warlord in the Fire Islands, known for demanding annual tributes from all of the villages under his control. His regime collapsed shortly after the first appearances of the Kemurikage.
Toz lived centuries prior to the formation of the Fire Nation in the disaggregated Fire Islands, where he became a warlord. He fought with other warlords for land and eventually amassed a territory consisting of several villages. He decreed a mandatory annual tribute from all of the villages under his control, even during times of famine.
One year, a village refused to provide Toz with tribute, which prompted him to order the abduction of all of the village's children as punishment. The children were never seen again and the mothers from the village died soon after from sadness. Shortly thereafter, the Kemurikage began to frequently haunt Toz and his men: they drifted into the warlord's encampment in the middle of the night and took children. Because of this, Toz's men abandoned him out of fear of the dark spirits, resulting in the collapse of his regime.
