Within the walls of a village of the fire nation, it was the day a couple was immediately having a baby. The two lovers have already prepared for this for the past nine months to the point that they even named the unborn after the wife's later father 'zetsu' before the day of delivery. They even asked the village's top role model to help deliver the baby in hope that their child would have a good life. But once the baby was born, the face of the man's name was completely pale. He passed the newborn just for the mother to faint and the father to be horrified at the fact that his newborn son has a demonic red scar of a left eye that was illuminating red. The man that delivered their son quickly ran out of the house screaming that the mother has given birth to a monster. Throughout his childhood, Zetsu's parents raised him from within the confines of their home and homeschooled him. But after they taught everything they knew and couldn't teach him anything else, they decided to cut their losses and take to a regular school despite his 'deformity'.
Years later when zetsu has reached the age of nine, a bunch of kids just gathered in front him after the end of school just to mock and call him vaatu's incarnate because of his cursed left eye, which was glowing red in representation of his rage and annoyance. He turned around to them and screamed at them to fuck off which accidentally made him shoot loads of fire in front of everyone, making the bullies run like the cowards they are. Pretty excited at his first sign of being a firebender, zetsu ran home just tell his mother and father just to see an empty house. He kept on searching just to see a note with a briefcase with a large amount of money. The more he read through the note was the angrier he felt, which in effect made his left eye glow even more. His beloved parents was so ashamed of his optical figure that the simply moved away without him and abandoned him. To blow off some steam he went outside and started punching every hard thing that was near him to the point his hands were completely bloody. Zetsu was left without a family, with no friends and with no one to lean to for support.
Days later, zetsu stole some fire scrolls from a shop when the shopkeeper refused to take his money and kept calling him vaatu's incarnate because of his eye and began to properly learn the basics of firebending and within seven years time had decent control of his firebending powers......well......minus a couple of houses burning 'spontaniously' within the years of his training and the burnt marks he has on concealed parts of his body for screwing up his training. And during those years, he felt even more disgust and hate towards his home and even more humanity itself and planned to go to republic city. So in the middle of the day, when everyone outside was working outside, zetsu left the home with a bag of all of his personal belongings and the money he inherited from his parents then spilled gas within the main room of his house to burn down his home and his childhood memories within it. But just a second away before some smartass had the audacity to call him vaatu's incarnate one more time, he threw a fireball through the door that set the house on fire in a large explosion. Which then spread to other buildings which caused panic throughout the area. Zetsu only laughed with his left eye glowing fiery red with glee as he slowly walked away, leaving behind the destruction he purposely caused.
Zetsu is 5'2 tall with a skinny frame and weighs about 130 pounds. He has pale white skin with white hair on his left side and black hair on the right. His most well known visual trait is his eyes. His right eyes look completely normal, it only has a white pale color which almost makes it look like it's blind. His left eye on the other hand, has a black sideways lightning looking scar with the pupils glowing red with a ripple design.
He wears a gray shirt with a black and white hooded jacket with a bear design on the hood to match his eyes.On his hands he wears blood red gloves, which you will mostly see when he flips you off. And pants of the same black and white design with laced boots with black and white horizontal stripes.
Since zetsu spent his years abandoned by his parents and shunned by the people he knew because of his 'physical difference', he cared incredibly less about people and chooses to isolate himself. Never has he ever turned to anyone for help nor has he ever helped anyone in general. He may keep his emotions bottled up but he can act a child sometimes. But if it's one thing he hates the most, it's being called anything relatively close to the spirit vaatu. Or worse...........a mime. He will not hesitate to melt your face off if you do.......so......don't. In a sense, if it wasn't for his 'cursed' left eye he would probably worked and trusted people. If asked, he would most like thought of having at least one friend he can depend on and tell what he's thinking. But every time he tries so the only thing that would come out is something sarcastically mean. So until he can cope with his trust issues and give people a chance, he's forever stuck an isolated child.
