Azula is a character in the animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender. She serves as the main antagonist of Book Two: Earth, as well as a secondary antagonist of Book Three: Fire, and appears in the Avatar comics.
Azula is the princess of the Fire Nation and the younger sister of Zuko. She is a firebending prodigy, a master manipulator, and a ruthless seeker of power. At only fourteen years old, she is one of the most formidable antagonists in the series, regularly outclassing even highly competent adults.
Azula, Ty Lee, and Mai are collectively referred to as the Dangerous Ladies by the fandom.
After her mental breakdown during the final episodes of the series, many fans found Azula sympathetic and expressed interest in a redemption arc for her.
