You know, I could buy Zuko as romantically inclined towards one or both genders, but asexual. He obviously prioritizes companionship over physical attraction.
Also where is Izumi's mom? I'm starting to think when he learned he needed an heir - and how to make one - he was like I HAVE TO DO WHAT
Izumi was made in a lab. Or a surrogate.
Or Azula dropped her off one day and Zuko decided not to ask any question.
I got that impression with Kuei. I just had a hard time believing he would be able to settle down and have a daughter.
Agreed, but with him I think it's because he comes across as having the maturity of a prepubescent. Maybe after he matures a little he'll stop thinking girls have cooties.
