The Phoenix is a mythical bird wid a colourful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet. It has a 500 to 1,000 year life-cycle.. near the end of which it builds itself a nest of myrrh twigs tat 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 as its shown in Harry potter II, i hope :). The new phoenix is destined to live as long as its old self. The new phoenix embalms the ashes of its old self in an egg made of myrrh. The bird was also said to regenerate when hurt or wounded by a foe, thus being immortal and invincible ,it is also said that it can heal a person wid a tear from its eyes and make them temporarily immune to death. The phoenix is a symbol of fire and divinity.
