Ty Lee: Do you have any idea what my home life was like, growing up with six sisters who look exactly like me? It was like I didn’t even have my own name. I joined the circus because I was scared of spending the rest of my life as part of a matched set. At least I’m different now. Circus freak is a compliment!
Azula: My own mother… thought I was a monster.
Mai: I was a rich only child who got anything I wanted. As long as I behaved…and sat still…and didn’t speak unless spoken to. My mother said I had to keep out of trouble; we had my Dad’s political career to think about.
Zuko: Bad skin? Normal teenagers worry about bad skin. I don’t have that luxury. My father decided to teach me a permanent lesson — on my face.
