What Is Special about the Phoenix Bird
Well, if we take a tiny look at Greek mythology, the phoenix bird basically cannot die. When the phoenix bird reaches a certain mature age, instead of dying and rotting away like the rest of us. It simply burst into flames and then a new bird arises from the ashes of the old bird. It is believed that a Phoenix bird can live for over 1300 years before rebirth. So in other words, don't go looking for a phoenix bird's egg anytime soon as these birds don't believe in offspring. Then this begs to ask the question. How many phoenix's are there and what purpose does a bird like this serves? That is a question many men have tried to answer, but as mythical as the bird is, it is not easy to find and study. The little knowledge known about this bird was passed down from generations of Magicians, witches and warlocks. They have documented basic tit bits of the Phoenix Bird lifestyle and now I will present them to you.

But be careful with those witches, they may turn you into a frog, rat or something just to amuse themselves.
