Yasuko[2] was the wife of Hiroshi Sato and the mother of Asami. A loving and caring woman, she was killed by a member of the Agni Kai Triad during a break-in and robbery at the Sato estate.[1]


Yasuko met and married Hiroshi Sato, and in 152 AG she gave birth to their daughter, Asami.[1][3] Six years later, the Agni Kai Triad raided the Sato estate and Yasuko lost her life during the break in at the hands of one of the members.[1]


Yasuko's death became the primary factor in manifesting Hiroshi's deep hatred toward all benders, eventually causing him to join the Equalists to avenge her death.[1]

  • Yasuko shares a similar past to that of Kya, the mother of Katara and Sokka. Both women were killed by firebenders that entered their homes, albeit for different reasons, when their children were very young, and the death of each woman caused their respective spouse to take action: Hiroshi joined Amon and Hakoda led the Southern Water Tribe to fight in the Hundred Year War.

    • if Yasuko from Fire Nation, is she a firebender? 
    • We do not know, but I'm pretty sure she's a nonbender. If she were a firebender, then that would make Hiroshi's hatred for benders hypocritical.
  • Asami's mom hailing from Earth Kingdom?
