Growing up, Azula carried a naturally willful and dominant personality, which her father found very handy for his own goals in the war and in seeking more power, despite the fact she was not the first born in their family. This made their relationship close, closer than either ever shared within their immediate family, possibly due in part to his not being the first born to his father either.

Despite the apparent joy she carries in tormenting others, Azula managed to make not one, but two close friends that would do anything for her at any time. While they may have met simply because they were in school together, the bond those three share goes far beyond their neighborhood, which is why she knew that once her time to serve in official business had come, she wouldn't be able to succeed without them by her side.

Azula's first mission on her father's orders was to capture the Avatar, a goal which brought friction between her and her older brother Zuko, who had been given that assignment previously, but the Fire Lord's confidence in him had long since waned. As such, she had to deal with opposition from two sides during the chase, but once inside the Earth Kingdom city of Ba Sing Se, her charm managed not only to convince a naive Earth King of her virtue, but Zuko as well, who teamed with her to apprehend Aang. Her lightning struck the Avatar directly, a wound which nearly killed him, but Iroh stepped in to allow his friends to escape with him, which forced her to have her uncle arrested for treason.

With Ba Sing Se conquered, Azula became aware of the plans they had made to aid the Earth Kingdom in the war, secrets which she returned to the Fire Nation to give her father. This allowed them the proper time to prepare for the invasion, and even without the use of their Firebending during the eclipse, their forces were able to withstand the assault on the palace, and take the majority of the opposing combatants into custody. With Ozai personally ascending himself beyond the title of Fire Lord, this left a vacant seat in the royal order which he entrusted to his daughter. But before her coronation, she was challenged to an Agni Kai by Zuko, one that she was so bitter to have lost, she suffered a nervous breakdown. By Zuko's now official command, she was sent to prison indefinitely.
