Ok I started doing another type of wolf, but I got sick of it and did this insteed, If I don't go out (It's not looking good as my cuz has got to work) I'll post up some more stuff.

Phoenix: Of all the winged creatures on the face of Aer'ai'chán, none is so mystical, beautiful, or wondrous as the bird of flames, the legendary Phoenix. This awe inspiring bird is rarely seen, and very little is known about it's origins. Some strongly believe that it is a gods pet, let loose on the world now and again, to give the people a glimpse of a gods powers. Others swear by the fact that the Phoenix is, itself a god, bringing peace to the righteous and swift retribution to the evil and corrupt. Still others say it is not more then a near extinct animal, no different from a swan or dove. Whatever the case, the phoenix is the rise of many tales and pomes, and the few people that clam to have cough a glimpse of this extraordinary bird, seem to be blessed living long and prosperous lives, or cursed, and soon find horrific ways to die. Some pass it off a coincidence, but…

Sounds fine also so far. But I guess there will come some more info on the Phoenix, right?

I was just thinking but could the Phoenix be a manifestation of Ava on the earthly plane so as to speak? Not sure if this is possible, have no idea of the ramifications on the cosmology but I thought it would be pretty neat if the phoenix = Ava :)  Anyhow, it was just a stray thought I picked up, ignore it if it has no bearings!

Hmmm... The Phoenix is a creature of fire, isn't it? So maybe there's a myth of Foiros involved there? Or: It is a representation of Avá in the form of a bird who/which flew too close to the Injčrá (the sun) and couldn't die because there's eternal life in it. And so it still burns!?... Hmmm... Not so good maybe. Somehow we should integrate in the myth that the phoenix came out of the ashes, that it was reborn somehow...

Well I'm not just going to flat out say it, but I'm gonna most of theses ideas in to the history of the Phoenix. That way the ideas are there, but it remains a mystery as to its real origins

Sounds ok, Torek:)

BTW: Have you noticed my posting at the "General Santharian Discussions" concerning Bestiary entries? If not, make sure to use the "Mark Forum Read" feature (see "New in Santharia?"-Forum).

BTW2: I still would need some info from you for the Team section!

Great idea! I was thinking about bringing up the Pheonix as well, but hadn't gotten around to it. But anyway, how about a Fire Bird, the more generic form of Pheonix. (Not "devine," so called, but an actual creature like a dragon.) Also working on this for the dragon. (Fire lizard, with no relation to Anne McCaffrey except that it resembles slightly the fire lizards in her books...)

Feel free to add a Fire Bird too, Stormcrow. Torek concentrates on the Phoenix because there exists already a picture of this creature we can use for the Bestiary:)
