Gangleader of the Azure Demons.Description -
Asura Jinroh is an individual of average height, standing at 5' 8" with an unkempt mane of raven-black hair tied in high ponytail contrasting with his feral yellow eyes. He is athletic and hard bodied, as becomes an adept of firebending, as well as from long, hard days on the road and countless duels in the criminal underworld, during his rise. A skilled firebender, Asura’s firebending displays the infamous characteristic blue flames of his grandmother, Azula. As the Azure Devil of the Azure Demons, he has had metallic blue dragons tattooed on his forearms, as though coiled around it (lesser members only on their left arms). He typically dresses in loose black fitting clothes, with a long blue sash tied around his waist. He has a suit of red armour, styled in the fashion of the Metalbending Police Force
(but without the cables and equipment), though he rarely uses it unless paying 'official' visits to rival gangs or during 'war time' (such as the Anti-Bending Revolution
) or other chaotic upheavals.
Though mild-tempered, time and interaction with Asura reveals a ruthless and pragmatic undercurrent in his approach to problems. If not friendly in his dealings, he is at the very least polite. The sharp critical gaze of his amber eyes and a contemplative manner, indicate a hard intelligence combined with a certain degree of spiritual awakening, not otherwise found or expected in someone of his criminal proclivity. He has a fair degree of loyalty to those he call friends or allies, as well as the generous nature of a mafia boss (without the strings). However, when fighting breaks out, all concepts of honour or fairness breaks down.
Never one to discount anything, Asura has taken the unorthodox step of studying and practising the philosophies of other bending styles to alter and improve his capability in firebending, whilst practising both martial and sword arts for times when subtlety is necessary and firebending too flashy. Combustionbending
has been of interest to him, but so far the ability eludes him, and he has turned his attention elsewhere. Through observation of water benders, he has learned to redirect lightning, and from earth benders to control and redirect heat as well as increase the physical force and combustive effects of his blue flames. Now he awaits to see what his study of air bending will reveal...
Despite living in Republic City and growing wealthy off of it, Asura rarely has anything good to say about it, preferring to reminisce fondly on his homeland in the Fire Nation in quiet moments. Despite this, he finds it hard to let go of the wealth and luxuries he has grown accustomed to having access to, and always finds reasons to delay going back to his homeland.Allegiance -
Fire NationBIO -
Asura Jinroh was formerly minor aide to a provincial administrator within the Fire Nation. His gentle and unambitious manner as a child made him an easy target for bullies and those willing to climb over others to achieve their goals. Unfortunately for those people, Asura was the grandchild of Azula
, and equally prone to mental instability. Though his breakdown was not as flashy or violent as his grandmother, it was no less dangerous. Cold rage giving him focus, Asura poured all his time and effort into conditioning his body and advancing his capability in firebending. Possibly because of his mental instability, Asura has, on occasion, confided that the spirit of Azula herself sees to his instruction. Though there has been no way to verify this, he has accomplished more on his own than most ever could, and, as though to give credence to his words, his firebending manifests blue flames (though it could simply be genetic throwback).
Once he re-emerged from the shadows, Asura quickly vented his frustrations on those who had picked on him when he was younger, easily outclassing them. Many of them had become gang members of the criminal underworld and when Asura roundly humiliated them, their gangs came for revenge and Asura beat their enforcers in turn. His display of skill and power, along with his ferocity and blue flames, earned him the nickname and title of Azure Devil and soon had a gang of his own, formed from those who respected strength. Though irritated by this development, Asura has chose to keep them around and turn them to more honourable paths - a task that has proven to be easier said than done - though to this day, the Azure Demons, as they call themselves, have a lot more discipline and honour compared to their contemporary rivals, enough so that they are sometimes called the Noble Demons.
During the abortive Anti-Bending Revolution
, Asura kept the Azure Demons on low profile, preferring to stay out of the conflict, seeing it as an annoyance from misguided zealots, not worth the time to fight. Since Harmonic Convergence
, Asura has found the emergence of airbenders fortuitous, as it gives him a chance to observe a bending style he has rare access to. Wasting no time, he has divested himself from the day to day running of the Azure Demons, leaving it to his lieutenants so that he can leave to see the principles of airbending first hand.Theme Music: Judge, Jury, and Executioner
