Inspector Iroh for TheArtrix by rufftoon Inspector Iroh for TheArtrix by rufftoon
Just because sometimes, it is fun to take a break and go play with someone else's Avatar AU.

Inspector Iroh is the AU created by :icontheartrix:
Explanations and a few comic pages here:
[link]

There was no mention of Zhao at all in his descriptions and universe notes so far, and somehow that bit of back story popped into my head. I don't know if it is accurate, but what the hey. Just having fun with it :D
Inspired by the fact that in one Avatar episode, we see a young Zhao in the spirit library doing research.

Poor Zhao, the one caught up with all the weird files, all the weirdo reports...

Avatar characters belong to Mike, Bryan, Nickelodeon and Viacom.

According to the implication you give with the mug on Zhao's desk, I'm not sure if I should be afraid OF his kid or FOR his kid.  He or she is probably BF/BFF with Azula.

Zhao looks better without a topknot or with a water tribe wolf tail. Thank you for depicting his irresistible good looks.

A couple of things.
1: One person has made the comparison between the ninth Doctor and Zuko's clothes, while Iroh looks like he dressed up as Doctor 10.
2. Nice to know that Jom Jom (sp?) has a desk job.
3. Dunno if this work inspired Mike and Bryan to take Legend of Korra the direction its headed (urban contempoary setting), but if it is, both you and theartrix are in humanity's debt.

The cast of Avatar... in a cop drama/parody scenario?
Well... I'd watch it.

and I wouldn't be surprised if Ozai and azula are a chinese triad with zhao as a dirty cop. Zuko would be the brash hunk heroic cop and Iroh......-_- I guess tea with donuts?

Ahhahaha awesome. I adore you way you drew Zuko, his face especially looks totally, completely, 100% utterly canon :3 Maybe it's because he was pretty much always angry all the time xD No but really though, you have everyone's character designs down. And this concept is hilarious xD

I loved Mai's comment, everyone has a day like that when they figure out their situation is not that bad, or everything else is stranger, I loved the characters, so fun, I never thought I would like Zhao but I did in this.

Why am I suddenly reminded of Lupin III episodes, Law and Order, and a slew of crime and punishment related syndicated TV ? Absolutely hilarious and well-done.
I really love the attention to detail. Can I ask you for a request ? I'm not that great at drawing Iroh, (though I did try my hand at it with one of my better pieces, "Tea is Happiness"), but I would love to see Ai (my OC) enjoying tea with Uncle. :}
