""I used to watch them as a kid. My granny told me about 'em. Some cold nights you see them dancin' in the sky over the Hub, burnin' green and gold..."

Capabilities

User with this ability either is or can transform into a phoenix, a mythical, sacred fire bird that symbolizes rebirth, immortality, and renewal in the mythologies of the Arabian, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Chinese, Turks, Indians and Phoenicians/Canaanites.

Phoenix are described as birds with colorful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet (or purple, blue, and green, according to some legends) with a 500 to 1000, or even 1461 year life-cycle. Near the end of its life, a phoenix builds itself a nest of twigs or whole trees that it then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again.
