Though Zen'nō may choose to appear as though he is a friend to someone, he can quickly turn his back on them as easily as the wind changes. However this change is always brought on by something, and Zen'nō never changes just for "the fun of it." Whenever he changes his personality, there is always a reason behind it, whether to manipulate the person that he is in the company of, or someone that they directly influence. Almost everything that Zen'nō says or does has some way of furthering his own goals. As to what these goals are, no one knows besides him.
Zen'nō's parents were both fire-benders who worked as soldiers in the Fire Nation navy. Knowing that his parents were both benders, Zen'nō first tried bending at age 6. Though his flames were not very big, they did burn hotter than most. Throughout his childhood, Zen'nō would constantly set fire to things of his parents', then blame it on one of his two older sisters. Often times, Zen'nō would do it and lie, just to see if he could get away with it. Though his sisters certainly knew what was going on, his parents never caught on, believing every lie Zen'nō fed them. For a long time, Zen'nō was their golden son, the one that they showed to all of their friends, and were the most proud of.</span>
When Zen'nō was 13, he decided that the life as the 3rd child of military parents was not going to be good enough for him, and set out acquiring the skills he would need to further his own goals, primarily those that would cost money. From street urchins, he learned how to pickpocket, using this skill to great effect upon the working population during rush hours. Learning how to pickpocket helped Zen'nō put a little more money in his pocket, which he refused to spend on trivialities. Instead, he used the money to buy private martial arts lessons. He only did this after asking his parents to teach him, which they refused, stating that no son of theirs would join the military.
Three years later, Zen'nō was well formed physically, and had started to use his newfound skills in martial arts to hire himself out for jobs on the street. He would perform anything from robbery to muggings to arson. Though he would never actually kill anyone on these "jobs," he could always be relied on to get the job done to the fullest extent possible. Zen'nō used the money earned during these jobs to further his own education, learning not only to use a few different weapons in martial arts, but learning more about the world around him. He started to learn things such as anatomy, chemistry, geography, and the history of the world.
When he learned that the police were closing in on the people that he was doing jobs for, he turned them in for a rather sizable reward. Upon returning home that day, his parents treated him as a hero, having heard that he turned in a band of criminals to the police. Zen'nō then told his parents that he wished to go to Republic City and help people that were in situations the same as this. He used the reward money to buy a one-way luxury ticket to Republic City, and still had about half the money left over. While on the boat on the way there, Zen'nō turned 19, and met several people that he used to get more information about the Citizenship Project.
Though he himself is not completely sure of what his goals are, Zen'nō knows that he wants to have a powerful place in the city's world, both in the underworld, and in the public eye.
