Coming from a power-hungry family, Ozai was even more so than anyone else in his bloodline. He grew up envious of his older brother, crown prince and a beloved general of the Fire Nation, always wishing he could have the spotlight. When Iroh's son was killed, Ozai sought his opportunity and requested succession be passed to him because he still had heirs. Fire Lord Azulon was insulted by this action, and commanded Ozai to kill his own son to know what such a loss felt like. In Ozai's infinite conceit, he agreed to do so until his wife suggested another way to get what he wanted. That night, Azulon died, Ursa vanished and Ozai was immediately crowned as the new Fire Lord.

Under his reign, he was able to conquer most of the Earth Kingdom with aid from his daughter Azula. And when the population refused to adhere to his rule, he set in motion a plan to use the passing of Sozin's Comet to burn the Earth Kingdom to the ground, proving the Fire Nation's might. Once the celestial event arrived, Ozai renounced his title of Fire Lord to bequeath upon himself an even greater honor, the Phoenix King.

The only thing left standing in his way was the Avatar, and the two conducted a great duel with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. A mistaken attack on Ozai's behalf triggered the Avatar State, and with the power of all four elements at his disposal, Aang dominated the Phoenix King and with his newfound ability of Energybending, he disabled Ozai's Firebending permanently. Following his defeat, the newly appointed Fire Lord Zuko had his father placed in prison to reflect on the pain he caused every person he came across, and even the ones he never did.
