"Embers can glow very hot, sometimes as hot as the fire which created them. They radiate a substantial amount of heat long after the fire has been extinguished, and, if not taken care of properly, can rekindle a fire that is thought to be completely extinguished, therefore posing a fire hazard to anyone who is not careful."

"By the time embers are completely 'burned through,' almost all of it is pure carbon with loose physical bonds, which is why they crumble at the slightest touch. At that point they are normally called ashes."

"Why the PB? Azula has plenty of canon art!"
She's fourteen years old in canon, but seventeen eighteen in the games this journal is a part of. While she canonically does appear older than she actually is, I figured it's safe to assume that as she reached her late teens she'd continue to look older and older-- so, rather than having a fourteen-year-old who looked like a seventeen-/eighteen-year-old grow into a seventeen-year-old who still looked like a seventeen-/eighteen-year-old, I decided to find her a PB to at least attempt to get across the idea that she looks a bit older than she did in canon. Using fanart was also an option, but I decided against it because of a) the fact that there isn't really a lot of older Azula stuff out there, at least from what I've seen, and b) crediting issues.

tl;dr, older character = older-looking icons. I really do apologize if this causes any sort of inconvenience or confusion for anyone interacting with her; please don't hesitate to let me know if there's anything I can do to lessen that.
