    • The Legendary City of Troy.

      Legend has it that the city of Troy was besieged for ten years during the Trojan War. Its high walls and mighty people kept it safe from its enemies, just as Ba Sing Se had done. Due to the trickery of the Greeks, the city fell by infiltrating it through the Trojan Horse, which allowed for the Greeks to be brought into the city because they were inside the horse. This is very similar to how Azula, Mai, and Ty Lee infiltrated the city in disguise and we're not suspected of a thing until they struck. Just as the city of Troy fell, so did Ba Sing Se from the inside out.
