Iro is a very different person from others, which makes him feel secluded, he closed to other people long ago, looking seemingly feelingless.(just like mai) However, he is a very loving person inside and he cares for people, he just won't show it. If a disaster ever happened, he'd be the first person to lend his help, or share a candle to a poor old man in the night. The character barely care about most things but people is important to him. He's not a lawful person, neither is he a bad one, he just wants to keep everyone safe and maybe light them a candle in time of need.
Hey there. I am Iro. Not mentioning my second name as my father was an idiot and called me after these stupid leafy vegetable ball. I've grown as the son of a non-wealthy cabbage selling man, like his father and the father of his father and so on. But I'm not like him and not like my brother. Never am I gonna be a cabbage seller, even less am I gonna follow my mother's step and marry a stupid merchant. No. I'm more interested in fire, not the bad fire, like the one that killed dozens people back in the war. I'm talking about the fire on a candle or the fire in a fireplace. They're not hurting anyone they're calming people, making them feel better and that's what my firebending should be used for. Every night I go in the basement and I only like this house for a reason: The basement is windowless, and unless you are a firebender, it's lightless. Even though non-benders created stupid technology named lights I don't use them, they are made using electricity from us, benders and aren't warm, just lifeless lights. This is why I am living with no electricity. Anyway, the basement is what I need, I set candles all over the ground during the day before going outside and then when I come back from wherever I was, I go in the basement and light all of them, meditating in the middle of the "light circle" as I call it. All I need and ever needed was my firebending and I want it to stay like that.
I've grown with a "loving" father, my mother was a pretty well known fire bender, she didn't do much, just saved the village from a spirit that went on a rampage because our village was near it's nest underground, I don't even remember what my father told me about her except that. She died when giving birth to my brother, I was just 3 by then, so I can't remember her. It's a really big taboo in my family, so I can't talk about her at all. But when I meditate in the basement, I feel like she's there, watching over me, keeping me warm when I'm cold and making sure I am feeling well.
My father is a useless man, following the tradition of a father as stupid as he was, and as stupid as my brother. All they care about is cabbages, like no one else is important. I'm born with bending, they're non-benders and for some reason, they're okay with that. "You have bending, we have cabbages" is what my brother et father told me. I don't see what's so great about cabbages.
I've lived a kind of peaceful life, when I turned 17 I got a woman, she was the one. We met on the hill on a monday like every others. We were laughing, this was our spot where we would just meet each others every day and she was truly making me feel better, she accepted me as what I was, a poetic man, with not much words to make poetry out of though, it was all through my actions. And while we were both having fun, she died.. Not because of me, but because of a spirit we had woken up it turned purple and black and attacked us.. I did my best to protect her but my firebending was not good enough to fight, neither to repel the creature. These flames I always was scared of weren't any more dangerous than a dying flame. Once the spirit killed her, I couldn't move.. At first that is. I then started yelling.. But it wasn't yelling, flames burned through my stomach and came out from my mouth, sending a huge stream of fire on the spirit, killing it and killing my rage with it. Leaving only guilt.
As soon as I was old enough, I ran away from my village and made my way to republic city. Too much memories in that village, I had to run away. I want to find a teacher that can teach me to protect the ones I love with my flames.
