Yamato is a firm believer in moral, political and existential nihilism, as such he often comes off as unnecessarily cold or rude when talking to other people. As he believes that as both life, the concept and need for social and political community and the concept of morality as inherently meaningless he does not get stressed or traumatized when “bad” things happen to or around him.
Yamato was once a loving, caring person. However all that changed with the disappearance of his sister. His sister's disappearance was the catalyst that opened Yamato’s eyes to the random cruelty and injustice in the world. Yamato realised in those few moments that the world he lived in was bound to no rules and that the constructs that humans impose upon it are of little consequence. Government, family, right, wrong and even the worth of human life meant nothing to this uncaring and truly objective world and so from that moment it meant nothing to Yamato also…
Yamato does possess the capacity to love and protect something important to himself despite his ideals. He understands that as a human he will inevitably impose his own constructs on his perception of reality and as such he accepts it when he becomes emotionally attached to something, though this something will of course have to have navigated the cold tracts of Yamato’s outwards personality to find his soft side…
Yamato was born to two young firebenders from the Fire Nation capital,However he was taken from his parents and given up for adoption as his parents were considered too young to raise the boy properly. Yamato’s early years were in an orphanage in the capital. When Yamato was 3 years old he met a barren noble couple from a reputed family, they immediately took a shine to the young boy and promptly adopted him.
Yamato grew up in a loving family, he even got a sister after 3 years. Junko came from a situation much like Yamato, her mother, just 16 at the time was too young to raise her on her own and so she was put up for adoption as well. Junko was by far the most loved of the two of them, Yamato was always making trouble and pulling pranks whilst Junko was well behaved, quiet and respectful. Yamato didn’t resent his sister for her extra helping of love from their parents no, in fact the boy was grateful to his sister, she often helped him get away from their parents so he could play with toys and once he was older than 7, his bending…
Yamato’s life was that of a well-off noble, yet also that of a carefree vagrant, his parents gave him a wide leash and despite his slacking off, he flourished for it. Yamato was an excellent student and he excelled at history and social studies, yet he was also physically skilled and he often gave bending demonstrations to his extended family. This life of leisure changed the day Yamato turned 18, he decided to join the Fire Nation Army as an officer… Shortly after Yamato’s 21st birthday he received a letter from home, his parents had passed away and his sister had gone missing shortly after. Yamato abandoned his duties and began searching for his beloved sister, alas it was to no avail…
Yamato spent the next two years searching for Junko, he scoured the Fire Nation, the Earth Republic, the Northern Water Tribe and even parts of the Wastes, nothing… The only place left for him is Republic City, though by now he has given up hope and believes her dead. What drives him is no longer the forgotten love he felt for his sister no, what drives Yamato in his search for his sister is an almost involuntary obsession, he will stop at nothing to find what he assumes will be her body...
