Bender type: Firebender
Having elegant black hair and flawless pale skin, Gonnosuke has the look of an aristocrat. He stands at a height of 6'1 and most often wears a black tunic.
As one might expect from a nobleman, Gonnosuke is arrogant, greedy, and often times hotheaded. The firebender looks down with contempt on pretty much everyone and believes himself to be the only one deserving of absolute power. The level of skill he attained in firebending only fueled his arrogance and made him believe he is superior to everyone else. This sense of superiority and his desire to obtain power makes greed another emotion that he has an abundance of. Gonnosuke can also be hotheaded sometimes, quick to anger and make rash decisions, but he usually tries to avoid this and remain calm in tense situations. The only emotion he feels stronger than arrogance and greed is perhaps a desire for revenge against those who got him into the predicament that forced him to go to Republic City.
Outwardly, Gonnosuke appears to be a cold, calculating, and aloof individual. Despite being hotheaded at times, he typically prefers to think through what he plans on doing and making a long-term strategy. Partly because of his feeling of superiority, and partly because of his frequent calculating, he does not speak much around other people. That being said, the firebdender does not care very much about others anyway and is a bit of a sociopath, willing to kill people if it would help him achieve his goals. He also has no real loyalty to anyone or anything but himself, and will only serve an organization as long as he can continue to benefit from it in some way.
Gonnosuke hails from the Fire Nation, born into a family of lower nobility in the Fire Nation Capital. His youth was spent mostly learning subjects that a member of nobility would typically be instructed in (history, diplomacy, and so on) but the one he spent the most time on was firebending. Gonnosuke first began firebending when he was three years old and has been training in the art since then. His family, being among the lower-ranked nobles in the hierarchy, did not have as much wealth as the majority of the others and hoped that Gonnosuke's skills as a firebender to eventually give them more prestige. That was why they spent what wealth they did have on hiring good firebending teachers.
The young man himself didn't care too much about his family, but he was envious of the higher ranking nobles (specifically, of the power and wealth they possessed), so he made it his life goal to eventually rise up and become powerful―more powerful than them.
As he reached his early twenties and had become a skilled firebender, his father and uncle joined into a conspiracy with a few other low-ranking noble families to murder some of their rivals. The whole idea, in Gonnosuke's view, was suicide because of the good security that the high nobles possessed, but he wasn't given a choice in the matter and forced to take part. However, the young firebender did not want to be killed because of his family's foolish decisions. So he secretly reported their intents to the Fire Lord's government, which then had his father, uncle, and all of the other conspirators arrested and executed. But the high nobles that were to be the targets of the assassinations weren't satisfied with just that, so they had the families of the conspirators also punished to a varying degree.
For whatever reason, Gonnosuke himself was spared while most of his remaining family members were executed. But the firebender did not go completely unpunished: he was banished from the Fire Nation and forced to go into exile. One of his friends told him about the Republic City Citizenship Program, so Gonnosuke ended up going there, but he did not forget what happened back in his homeland. He is determined to rise to a position of power in Republic City, through whatever means necessary, and began working as a functionary for the United Republic government.
Gonnosuke plans to eventually use his power to somehow get revenge against the high nobility in the Fire Nation that forced him into this situation and has more influence than him. When he left the Fire Nation, he also stopped using his given name due to his anger at his family's stupid decisions and became known just as "Gonnosuke."
After several months of working for the government, the firebender was not satisfied with his progress. However, one politician he met and came to know well offered him a chance to become part of a secretive organization known as The Syndicate, believing that Gonnosuke's ambition, sociopathy, and firebending skill would come in handy to them.
