A legendary firebird with miraculous regenerative powers. As you may have noticed, these Mirages' down feathers and pinions are used to create precious items. "Nothing like a little phoenix down to help you phoenix up!" said no one ever... But they should!
[view·edit·purge]In Greek mythology, a phoenix or phenix (Greek: φοῖνιξ phoinix; Latin: phoenix, phœnix, fenix) is a long-lived bird that is cyclically regenerated or reborn. Associated with the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. According to some sources, the phoenix dies in a show of flames and combustion, although there are other sources that claim that the legendary bird dies and simply decomposes before being born again. According to some texts, the phoenix could live over 1,400 years before rebirth.
