In ancient history, the phoenix is a creature of fire that rises from its own ashes. What few know is that phoenixes are elemental beings, formed by the eternal essences of their native world. Fenghuang is a creature of pure elemental ice and dwells only in the coldest winter. Fenghuang is made up of the beak of a rooster, the face of a swallow, the forehead of a fowl, the neck of a snake, the breast of a goose, the back of a tortoise, the hindquarters of a stag and the tail of a fish.

On her world, Fenghuang was the protector of the frozen icelands and all those with the spirit to endure in such unforgiving places. Fenghuang is a creature of great wisdom, one who could not die and who had seen the world renewed several times. Somehow, Fenghuang knew that the day would come when she would be plucked from her home and pulled across worlds. Since her arrival, Fenghuang has chosen to live among the highest peaks of the Northern Mountains, adjacent to the frozen wastes. Fenghuang only appears in areas or places that are blessed with utmost peace and prosperity or happiness. Fenghuang is admired with a sense of awe by most, but is not the most popular as most consider her unapproachable.
