Izaya was born to the late Izane and Kaya. They named him as a combination of their names. The first two letters from Izane's name and the last three from Kaya's. Izaya started walking at 10 months of age. His first words were of course "Mama" and "Dada". The couple weren't the poorest people of Ba Sing Se, but they surely weren't the richest.
From a young age, Izaya had always been known amongst the children in school and within the area. Whenever the children in the area would play games such as hide and seek or racing, he'd always win. The children adored him for this, and would always argue over who'd be on his team. Even though Izaya was popular, he still had those who envied him. He was one day, outside playing with friend when some other kids, who were known as bullies, singled him out. They had been known as well, but for being incredibly mean. The so called leader of the bullies, wanted to race Izaya. Izaya happily agreed, loving a challenge. He won the race and didn't give any indication that he was happy. That infuriated the bully and he raised a hand and swung at Izaya. Izaya,being young then, raised both hands and flinched. After a few seconds of not feeling a blow, he looked up to only find the bully flat on his back. His friends looked at him in amazement. He had airbended and beat up the baddest bully in the area.
When Izaya turned 9, Izane began to teach Izaya how to utilize his airbending. Izaya showed promise in how to use his bending in conjunction with his speed being able to send flurries of air blasts at an opponent and be attacked at and quickly dodge and counter attack. His father said that Izaya showed very much promise in bending.
His first time bending, he could barely shove his father with air, maybe a small breeze. He was growing tired and wanted to give up, but him being all quiet, just left it alone and kept trying. After being frustrated, he couldn't focus on anything but getting it done, which made him get no results. They came back the next day and Izaya focused, trying to please his father. This time he managed to make his father stagger, which led to him getting a congratulations.
When Izaya was 14, his father died from a heart attack. Kaya was very sad and immediately broke down after hearing the news. The circumstances were worse than a death though. Izane was the source of income within the family and Kaya couldn't provide. Izaya knew what his duty was. He had to provide for his mother. He couldn't let his father down. Izaya soon began getting into the wrong crowd and skipping school. His mother though knew nothing of it. He needed to earn money and drugs was the only way. He began trafficking it. He moved "items" from "point A" to "point B" for clients to pick up later. Easy. He had done more difficult jobs, one being that he had to deliver items inside of the evidence locker for a crooked cop to pick up later.
Months ago, Kaya died in her sleep. Izaya broke into tears. He later, stopped crying because he thinks of it as "It was her time to go.", "She's in a better place.", and "She went peacefully.". After her death, he continued to do jobs, and his main contact, who gave him all of his best paying jobs, had him do one in Republic City. He did the job and went back to Ba Sing Se. He couldn't stay though, he had fallen in love with the city. He was also sure that the city would have way more jobs.
Izaya is a quiet individual, he usually doesn't speak unless spoken to. He is what most call the "cool guy type". Even though he his quiet, he refuses to let others run over him in anyway. He tends to let his ideas and some of what he thinks in his mind, but will let them out if he thinks it can be useful at the moment. He is a very intelligent person and puts that to use in most scenarios, he is always thinking and focused on the subject at hand, never off task. Izaya is very loyal to his friends and expects them to be the same to him, when they are and aren't around him. He hates someone who is not trustworthy. He always tries to encourage his team mates, even when he is angry at them. He tries to hide his anger, and almost never shows it. Even when he is frustrated, he will show it briefly then it will disappear again. In battle, he will show that he is brave and will not back down no matter what if he can stand it, but he does know his limits and when it is necessary to retreat.
