One of the Fire Nation's greatest soldiers, rising through the ranks at a rapid pace in an attempt to further his own name. When the disgraced Prince Zuko crossed his path asking for repairs to his ship, Zhao was able to determine that there was something being hidden from him, and after an interrogation of every soldier on board the vessel, confirmed the re-emergence of the Avatar. He then decided to pursue the quest to capture him, turning Zuko into a constant rival.

But unlike Zuko, the Avatar was far from the only goal on his agenda. Having discovered Wan Shi Tong's library years earlier, he had read up on the mortal identities of the Moon and ocean spirits, which controlled the power of Waterbending. So when he chased Aang all the way to the North Pole, he took his opportunity to kill the fish at the Spirit Oasis, darkening the Moon and removing the power of every Waterbender fighting his forces.

Satisfying his ambition, he fled from the scene before being confronted by Zuko, where the two dueled until the ocean spirit formed a giant hand which grabbed him and pulled him beneath the surface to a watery grave.
