Shila is a logical girl. She's also very sweet, but can come off as extremely apathetic, which she is, actually. She is only really 'happy' after she gets to have a bit of fun. She tends to snap at people, sometimes, usually when they're bothering her; When she hates someone, she finds it very hard to hide. She follows rules, though, because she thinks it'll help. The more she's here, and the longer she's gone without a kill, of course, the more she'll be subject to snap.
She's a bit arrogant. Her self-assuredness and her bigotry tend to get her into trouble, but her persuasiveness and smarts tend to get her out. She believes all the bad people should simply go away, and since nobody else would do it, she would have to do it herself. She was taught during the three years of her serving the Fire nation prison to follow orders, and to not speak out of term. unfortunately, that last thing never took hold. She's very assertive, and she's known. And she loves it. She'll be the one speaking, and she'll kill anyone who interrupts her.
Shila was born to two factory workers in the Fire Nation, one who quit so she could be a housewife. June was her favorite. She was never close with Ryuu, her father, who was born a firebender. June was non-bender, and Shila was okay with that. They did the best they could for her, even after she accidentally burnt down a tree in their backyard at the age of six, and she appreciated it in her own way. She helped with the chores, and cooked her own means sometimes. Eventually, Shila was old enough to be left alone without having the house burn down, and she was. June went back to work. Shila was careful around the house. She only practiced her fire-bending while she was outside, and she always made sure to have a bucket of water nearby.
Shila was about thirteen when her mother first noticed signs of something. Shila was too laid back, and calm about everything. Sort of distant and put off. She wasn't normal, and she didn't have many friends, either. June put it off as a phase that every girl went through around her age. She never brought it up, but she did keep a close eye on her when she was home. Shila herself started enjoying different things than anyone her age, which is something her mother looked over. She was enjoying playing with animals, and not in the normal way. She burnt them, trapped them, and sometimes killed them. She noticed their suffering made her happy. And her father was the first to notice. Ryuu watched her one day as he came home from work early. Concerned, he attempted to stop it, which really only made it worse. She wanted to make him happy, so she kept it in. She even became more socialized, and got a job at sixteen, the first chance she could. That only made it worse. People irritated her, and though she still did it to animals, it wasn't as satisfying. Soon, she snapped, and one day at work, she tortured and killed a co-worker, though made it look like they attacked first. Shila was caught, of course, put in prison despite her plea of it being in self-defense, and put into a high security prison.
She was nothing really special in her first year there. Except for killing a few inmates, making it seem like self-defense, and trying to escape a few times, all of which had failed. Eventually the guards got sick of it, and figured she could be put to a better use. To stop her from killing people, they started using her as a sort of executor, to kill those who've done a bad enough crime to get killed on the spot. After that, she became much easier in the prison, and eventually, was let go for good behavior- on one condition. They get to use her.

The user is able to shoot small blasts of fire in rapid succession toward something.
The user is able to create a belt of flames which they can use to strike and burn with.
The user is able to increase the heat of the air, objects and liquids.
The user is able to, if timed correctly, break away or deflect other fire attacks.
(Note: Once a power is chosen, it cannot be changed.)
The user is able to create intense bursts of flames from their hands and feet which can be used to propel them through the air for a short time. (Achieved after 1 week)
The user is able to create small disks that can be used as quick moving projectiles. (Achieved after 2 weeks)
Sun Warrior(Achieved after 1 month)
The user is able to create thin blades of fire from their melee attacks which are capable of cutting objects as well as burn them. While performing this technique, the user cannot use any other form of firebending techniques.
The user sends forth a massive fireball which explodes into a torrent of flames upon contact. The user must take time to build up this attack and is vulnerable while doing so.
The user's flames become enhanced and burn much hotter than normal. The user is able to change the color of their flames as they wish (excluding black flames) and can simultaneously use two different colors.
The user can launch a stream of fire which they can guide towards the target, allowing them to target more agile opponents. The user is immobile while using this power.
(Note: Once a power is chosen, it cannot be changed. Also, Master level powers can only be achieved after 7 months and require 2 open power slots.)
The user is able to pressurize their flames in order to make them semi-dense and have a sort of tangible force when they strike something. (Achieved after 2 months)
The user is able to focus their fire so effectively that it can become lightning. The lightning is far quicker and more unstable than fire and cannot be blocked or redirected by any means other than another person who can Lightningbend redirecting it. Creating lightning takes a huge toll on the user and if used more than a few times without a large break it will likely backfire on the user and injure them. (Achieved after 7 months)
